A dream about tar often hints at feelings of being stuck or trapped in a situation. The meaning of tar may be more subtle than that, however.

It can also represent negative emotions or toxic relationships that are weighing you down. If you dream about something or someone being covered in tar, it may suggest that you are unable to see the true nature of a situation or person due to negative perceptions or feelings. This dream is a call to action to free yourself from these burdens and seek clarity.

Tar is a very rich and colorful dream symbol to pin down for sure. To really say with any kind of confidence, I'd want to get to know the dreamer's past and mindset.

2. The psychoanalyst's interpretation

Dreaming of tar, in Freudian terms, can be a manifestation of the unconscious mind's struggle with repressed guilt or shame, akin to the tar's sticky, dark, and difficult-to-remove nature.

With that being said, tar can be more complicated than that. It may symbolize the dreamer's internal conflict to cleanse oneself of these negative emotions. When the dream involves an object or individual enveloped in tar, it could represent a projection of these feelings onto that entity. It suggests a need for the dreamer to confront and resolve these feelings, rather than displacing them onto others. This dream serves as an invitation to embark on a journey of introspection and emotional resolution.
