To see a jailer in a dream indicates we feel restricted in our waking lives by someone or something (including ourselves). The context in which the jailer appears is worth of consideration as this will provide clues to the problem.

A jar represents the feminine principle; usually some aspect of mothering (e.g. protection, love) we recognise within our lives. A jar is a receptacle for preserving things that would be worthless without a place to be “kept” (e.g. flowers, pickles, jams, and fruit). Thus, in a dream it can represent a need for the dreamer to preserve some aspect of his or her life.
