(1) The symbolism may be Freudian: a bottle represents a vagina.
(2) If the bottle is not empty, the meaning may be provided by the contents - wine, for example, or poison.
See also Poison, Wine.
(3) If the bottle is empty, it probably represents your own (feeling of) emptiness. Do you feel drained, exhausted? Has all the enjoyment gone out of life? If so, ask your unconscious to put you in touch with appropriate inner resources, then observe your dreams carefully over the next week or so.
Vagina. Of wine, spirits or beer: sometimes an influence entering your life to change it; relaxation. Of red wine: you may have felt there is more in life than your own ego, its worries and desires, sense of sharing life.
Symbolic of the need to keep information secret
A bottle is about the ability to contain a small amount of something, usually liquid refreshment.
If the symbolic meaning behind what’s in the bottle is to nurture you or please your palate, then the meaning of the bottle is your ability to contain that desire in a portable way and enjoy it at your leisure. An empty bottle relates to something you had in the past being unavailable to you now.
A bottle that is broken indicates an inability to contain something pleasurable.
If you know what is in the bottle, add that for a great distinction of your interpretation.
1. Source of supply;
2. Sustenance. Mark 2:22; Matt 9:17
Research contents, i.E. Bottled up emotions; tears are bottled by god for remembrance
This is a womb symbol: the principle of containing and enclosure and, therefore, an aspect of femininity, fertility and intuition.
Psychological / emotional perspective:
Opening a bottle could mean making available resources you have but may have suppressed.
A broken bottle could indicate either aggression or failure.
To a certain extent it depends on which type of bottle is perceived in the dream. When the image is of a baby’s feeding bottle, it would indicate the need to be successfully nurtured and helped to grow.
A bottle of alcohol would show the need to celebrate, or to curb an excess, while a medicine bottle might symbolize the need to look at one’s own health.
Gives gender-specific: In a woman’s dream, given the above significances, the image of a bottle is probably to do with her own intimate feelings about herself as a woman. In a man’s dream such an image will be more to do with his perception of women.
A bottle of wine can mean celebration, the good life. Or, more negatively, “hitting the bottle” or to be “on the bottle.” A baby bottle can be associated with infantile desires or, more positively, nurturance. We also talk about how one “bottles up” emotions, or how “the genie is out of the bottle.”
Looking at one or several full bottles means fun or an invitation. Empty bottles are a warning about an unpleasant event, or that you are at a disadvantage.
A broken bottle or breaking a bottle means bad news.
A full bottle of red wine is a good sign, promising prosperity.
Depth Psychology: A bottle is sometimes a symbol for sexual cravings, but it also indicates that personal and professional possibilities may be limited. Do you feel like an (empty) vessel? Did others imply that you are? Did you make a mistake, miss something? Do you have a tendency to put yourself down? Do others put you down?
To dream of a full bottle is symbolic of having plenty and being willing to share with others.
To see an empty bottle symbolizes a need; a yearning.
(Glass bottle; Water skin)

The same interpretation is given for blowing air or inflating any sack or a balloon. Seeing a bottle of water in a dream may denote a wife, a husband, a host, a merchant, or a pregnant woman.

Inadvertently, sometimes you bottle up your emotions, preventing them from being freely expressed. This dream can be an invitation to be more spontaneous and to avoid repressing your feelings. However, the bottle’s contents will illustrate your situation.
Dreaming of bottles filled with water is a symbol of prosperity and joy; if they contain liquor it indicates that your feelings are not sincere: unpleasant incidents with the beloved are likely to occur; if it is champagne, you need to be more social; if it is poison, it represents evil thoughts on your part; if it is red wine, it will express your passions; and milk demonstrates your need for new ideas. Empty bottles indicate amorous disappointments, illness, or setbacks in your projects. You may be out of your internal resources and feel hollow. Despite the disappointments, you must try to recover and move on, and dreams may point out the way to do it.
The interpretation of this dream varies with its details.
If the bottle was full, it forecasts quick prosperity; if empty, sud- den reverses.
If you spilled the contents, you can ex- pect petty worries and do- mestic quarrels.
A container or dispenser for liquid (such as a bottle, jug, or pitcher) can represent: Drinking, quenching, or satisfying.
Containment or control.
The idea of generosity or something else “pouring forth.” The idea of flowing, free-flow, or controlled flow (such as of a process or activity).
Consider also the meaning of whatever’s inside the container, and the role of the container with respect to it.
