What does it mean when you dream about a pot?

A symbol of female sexuality. We could be dreaming about “cooking up” something, or about examining one’s emotions close up. We can create things in a pot, but a “chamber pot” can also receive our waste materials. Pots are used in many idiomatic expressions, and a dream might be drawing on one of these meanings: “pot luck,” “pot calling the kettle black,” “a watched pot never boils,” “doesn’t have a pot to piss in,” “a melting pot,” etc.
