To see a boar in your dream means that you need to look inside yourself to find the answers and secrets about you and the people around you. It may also mean you are bored in a relationship.... My Dream Interpretation
(1) If the boar in vour dream strikes you as ferocious, perhaps it represents some part of you that is struggling for recognition, some buried instinct or desire that is defying your attempts to kill it. Perhaps its defiance is justified: perhaps you need precisely that part of you that now appears so wild and threatening.
It is threatening only because it is
threatened! Talk to it, and listen to it; then it may reveal itself as a valuable aide in your quest for happiness or fuller self-realization.
(2) If you associate fertility with the boar, the symbolism may be straightforwardly sexual. On the other hand, the fertility in question may be of a more metaphorical kind: the giving of life to those repressed parts of yourself that frighten you. (Yes, ferocity symbolism may coexist with sexual or fertility symbolism, just as in real life aggression is often mixed in with our sexuality’.) These hidden repressed things may be desires or instinctive drives associated in your life with some traumatic experience.
(3) It may be the animality of the boar that strikes you. The animality’ probably refers to the primitiveness or social unacceptableness of some repressed and buried part of your psyche (see also Animal). Animality’ symbolism, ferocity symbolism and fertility symbolism may all combine in the boar image. That which frightens you by its animality’ may be precisely what you need if you are to get rid of an inner conflict and find peace or fulfilment.
(4) If you associate evil with the boar image, the evilness may be in the eye of the beholder. In other words, if the boar has sexual overtones for you, its evilness may represent your own (irrational, repressed) feelings of abhorrence, disgust, fear or guilt about sex.
If so, you might want to dig into your past to discover the roots of those feelings. Ask the unconscious to assist you in the search, and pay special attention to your dreams over the next week or two.
(5) The boar may represent an aggression that you have not come to terms with in yourself. Aggressiveness may be a good thing - if tamed and properly employed.
If it is Svild’, however, it can seriously damage vour relationships with other people. And, strangely enough, aggressiveness is frequendv directed against oneself: in fact, sadism usually has its roots in masochism. So do take notice of vour dreams, to discover the sources of any aggression you encounter in yourself. Have a dialogue with the boar and find out w hat he wants. Sometimes aggressiveness may be traced back to an Oedipal conflict. In the case of a male, the infant desire for mother and accompanying jealousy tow ards father mav give rise to guilt-feelings which in turn may generate a compulsion to punish oneself The masochistic desire to hurt oneself may then spill over into sadistic desires to hurt other people, particularly those close to us. All this may occur at an unconscious level, so that it is onlv by taking a look at our unconscious (in dreams) that wre can unravel the thread of cause and effect.... A Dictionary of Dream Symbols
Like most animals, its symbolic meaning is versatile. On one side, it represent intrepidity and irrational bravery; on the other, it is a symbol of a lack of restraint. Given that it is difficult to fight the boar (he never gives up), the dream is indicating that if you repress your desires, your instincts will make your life impossible. Using the strength of the boar, you will be able to attain all that you wish. It represents free sexual impulse, not controlled by the conscious; that is, the libido, which is like the boar, is uncontrollable, violent, and irrational.
As a negative symbol, the boar represents the oneiric personification of cruel and ruthless enemies.
If in the dream the boar is captured or conquered, it portends joy and triumph.... The Big Dictionary of Dreams

Games in dreamland symbolize the manner in which the dreamer is approaching life. Individual games, such as solitaire, will indicate your tendency for self- absorption, where excelling or enjoyment is a significant motive. Interactive games, such as chess, indicate that competition is a significant motive for you. In either case, the dream will be highlighting your thought processes, mental skills and dexterity. In general, dream board and card games indicate how you are rising to a particular challenge in your waking life or how successfully you are playing the hand that fate has dealt you.
Little physical effort is required when playing board and card games, so games of this nature tend to focus on your intellectual performance or ability to think and react quickly. Pay attention to the tactics you use whilst playing and to your overall strategy. Were you calm and controlled with a set of tactics, or were you out of control? Was your game defensive or offensive? What is the dream telling you about your ability to respond to external stimuli in the directing of directing of your life? Are you self-motivated, continually striving to better your skill, or do you rely on competition for motivation? Your answer to questions such as these will tell you much about your current approach to waking life.
Consider too the colors of the pieces or cards you were using and what they might signify. For example, if you were playing with white chess pieces, do you associate yourself with kindness and your opponent with malevolence? If you are accused of cheating in your dream, are you deceiving anyone in waking life? Games in which pieces are moved around a board at the throw of a dice are often designed to mirror life’s challenges and this is often what they represent in dreams, suggesting fears or concerns about factors you can’t control. The game board reveals the moves you make in life and a games room stands for a meeting place in which plans and strategies are devised. A game show cautions against a desire to consider yourself intellectually superior.
Specific dreams may have their own symbolism; for example sexuality in snakes and ladders and the repercussions of your actions in games that require dominos. A game of backgammon may point to your desire to resolve the secrets of your unconscious (the inner table) before time or the other player stops you. Pool, billiards or snooker suggest clever scheming, combined with the skill to accomplish a goal. The condition of the poolroom will give you a clue as to whether this refers to healthy competition or dirty dealings, whilst the pool table refers to the issue or subject of your plans....

In a dream, wild thyme also means continuous blessings, power, a good business, a woman or a child.

In dreams, wild flowers represent freedom, freshness and natural beauty, symbolizing a disregard for the highly organized beauty of artificial flower beds or plastic flowers.
If many flowers are growing in your dream, this indicates feelings of wellbeing and optimism. The opposite will be the case if the flowers are dying or wilting. Do nature’s simple charms have great meaning for you, with your dream of wild flowers indicating the need for a simpler life? Or do you feel you are about to flower and fulfill your potential? Dreamers picking wild flowers may be turning away from their partner.
Cut flowers are unable to give pleasure in their natural setting and therefore may suggest artificiality and appearance over substance. Because flowers are a symbol of sexuality, fake or artificial flowers in a dream may suggest that those whom you think of as friends are actually showing you a false face or persona. On the other hand, flowers in a vase suggest a showcasing of your inner beauty or something that facilitates your personal development.
If you were arranging flowers in a vase or in a floral arrangement, try to remember if you did so carelessly or with great care. The positioning of flowers in dream floral arrangements can indicate how we unconsciously relate to others.
If your arrangement was artless or careless, you have a casual approach to relationships with others that may leave others feeling unimportant to you.
If you took extreme care with the arrangement, this can either indicate a positive, caring approach to relationships with others or controlling and manipulative tendencies. And if dried flowers appeared in your dream, this suggests that past relationships may be more important to you than the people with whom you are currently interacting in waking life....
