The famous Pandora’s Box held all the forces of good and evil in it. Pandora opened the box and unleashed its wrath into the world. She was able to close the box and in it hope. Thus, it is said that hope remains.

(2) A box may also represent yourself, your own psyche. Opening the box would signify a resolve to get to know yourself.
If the box contains something precious, it probably represents your true or essential or deep self, a rich store of energies and powers and wisdom and love.
(3) If the box in the dream fills you with fear - like Pandora’s box, from which all kinds of pestilential things came - there are at least three possibilities:
(a) It may symbolize your unconscious. The powers, instinctual drives and buried emotions that are kept out of sight in the unconscious layers of the psyche are things that have at some time in the past - possibly in
childhood - frightened you or been associated with frightening experiences. The wav forw ard is to cultivate their acquaintance and give them their proper place in your conscious life.
(b) If you are a man, the box may represent the negative aspect of woman (or the feminine) as the feared femme fatale luring you to destruction, or the possessive and devouring mother depriving you of your independence. In that case, you need to become acquainted w ith the feminine side of your own nature (anima) and / or come to terms with and deal with your (buried) feelings towards your mother (for anima). See also Woman. (For man, woman is an ambivalent reality, desired and feared. In mythology Pandora exemplifies this ambivalence - as do most goddesses. ‘Pandora’ means ‘all-giving’ or ‘all gifts’ and w’as probably originally a name given to the Earth Goddess, giver of all life. It w’as only later - at a stage of development w here male deities were the supreme gods and female deities had been demoted to subservient roles - that Pandora was seen as a symbol of woman as the source of evil.)
(c) It may represent any source of disaster. Is there anvthing w ithin you or in vour home or working environment that is threatening you or making you anxious?... A Dictionary of Dream Symbols
If what you find in the box displeases you it may refer to your fears or aspects of yourself that you want to hide. In case of a safe, what you keep in there will be your most precious intimacy, possibly, your best qualities. In the Greek myth of Pandora’s box, the malignant part of the woman who wants to have everything is represented. The oneiric- psychological analysis of this story establishes it represents man’s fear for the dark and feminine side of his nature. It can also refer to the way the unconscious projects the complex and negative attitudes in real life.

A magician represents the integrated whole and the individuality of the dreamer— that’s the reason why the magician in the Tarot was assigned the number One. This integration and uniqueness is what makes him magical.
The message here might be that the dreamer ought to concentrate on his “magical powers” and know that they contribute to success on his life path. But no personal magic will make itself known unless the dreamer chooses to pursue his own path.
If he doesn’t do that, everything will seem jinxed. He will not get ahead and a multitude of obstacles will get in his way. On the other hand, this dream symbol may also point out that too much emphasis is being put on the individual at the expense of the collective. See Witch.... Little Giant Encyclopedia

Whenever magic features in a dream, it suggests that you are using your energy to accomplish something but are not controlling that energy and using it effectively. It does, however, indicate that you are capable of controlling a situation that you are in and making things happen. Psychologically, when magic appears in a dream, it links in with your deepest powers. These can be powers of self-control or sexuality, or power over your surroundings.
If your dream features the occult and you have little or no knowledge of the subject, this usually suggests a need to come to terms with your hidden fears.
If you think of the occult in the negative sense, as in Satanism or black magic, the dream may have a negative significance or link in with the egotistical side of your nature. But if you think of the occult in more positive terms, as in Wicca and shamanism, the dream may have a positive spin or link in with the giving, nature-loving side of your character.
If you do possess occult knowledge, your dreaming mind may be urging you to apply that awareness and sense of the mystery and wonder of life to your everyday situation. The rule for both should always be, ‘do no harm or harm no one’. Finally, due to its complex and mysterious nature in dreams, the occult may be alerting you to your hidden potential.
