It's fun to play with dreams and try to help others interpret them. I actually took a lot of classes in this, read a alot about it, and eventually have held my own classes and workshops for people to interpret their dreams! It has been great fun and people learn a lot about themselves. My take on it, though, is that no one can interpret another's dream for them. I think that this is so simply because everyone has such different connotations for things in their lives. I demonstrated this at the beginning of each workshop or class I taught by doing the following: I would pass out paper and pens, then give the group three words at random. For example: popcorn, swimming, horse. I would ask each person to write three or four sentences of the first things that come to their minds when I said each word. It would be very interesting to hear what they wrote. The responses to each word would vary extremely widely. For example, one person would say "I have ridden horses all of my life and they are my favorite animal. My father was a horse trainer and my family breeds Arabians for show. Horses are my whole life, and I want a career in horse breeding." But another would write: "horses scare me to death. They are huge and dangerous and very dirty and I hate how they smell. One stepped on my foot one time and it took weeks to heal. I stay as far as I can from them!" Now, if both people dream of a horse can it possibly mean the same thing? And unless you know another person's whole history of connotations, you cannot know what it means if they dream about a certain thing. So that is why I think that only the dreamer can truly interpret his or her own dream. sometimes, though, it can help a lot for another person to say "maybe this thing in your dream means thus and so" because then the dreamer can think about it and it will either ring true, or else he or she will know that's not right, but it will make them think of what it really does mean.
Anyway, all this was just my two cents' worth. Probably not even worth that much!
But, playing with dreams can really be informative, too, about what is going on in your subconscious.
I sometimes dream that Beau is in danger, and have to get out of bed and find him and hold him just to reassure myself, even when I know it was only a dream. Sometimes, for some people, dreams really can fortell the future; be "precognitive". This has happened to me and to others I know. It is not common, but it can happen. So I take care to pay attention to certain of my dreams if they seem to be warnings.

Happy dreaming to all!
