You have to realize that dreams are just abstractions from your waking world. And when I say abstract, I mean Pablo Picasso-abstract.
Just think back and try to get a feeling of where you might have seen that aspect of your dream before.
For me, my latest dream was the planet Earth was being invaded by space aliens in the shape of milk cartons you find at a school - but REALLY big. Like the size of a house.
Since being invaded by giant milk cartons is highly improbable (I've read too much Douglas Adams to say impossible), where did I get such a strange dream? It was a combination of 2 TV shows I saw recently and a commercial for a new movie (The Boxtrolls).
Dreams are usually a combination of recent thoughts, desires, fears played out in our brains. Try to think good thoughts before falling asleep. You can start to recognize symbols pertaining to your life. Example : snake means you have been cheating, of you suspect cheating. Have fun with it, you'll get better the more you interpret.

If your sleep is often disturbed by nightmares or even pleasant dreams, rather than looking for any meaning in them, it might be better to look for possible causes of them in your way of life. How true what the Bible says: “For because of abundance of occupation there are dreams”!—Eccl. 5:7. Therefore if you are wondering what the future has in store for you, or if you are searching for a solution to your problems, you can find the answer, not in an interpretation of your dreams, but in God’s Word, the Bible. (2Timothy 3:16,17) (Please visit www.jw.org)
