The urn represents the feminine receptive principle. Just as all receptacles signify the feminine principle, so does the urn, although in a more ornate form. In earlier times, a draped urn signified death. That symbolism is still carried on today in the urn used in crematoriums. Thus, to dream of an urn may alert us to our feelings about death. For many people the tea urn is a symbol of community life. To dream of one suggests our ability to belong to a community and act for the Greater Good.
