What is the meaning of 'Oar' in dreams?


To dream of handling oars, portends disappointments for you, inasmuch as you will sacrifice your own pleasure for the comfort of others. To lose an oar, denotes vain efforts to carry out designs satisfactorily. A broken oar represents interruption in some anticipated pleasure.

Ten Thousand Dreams Interpreted by Gustavus Hindman Miller


If you dream of sailing in a boat, and losing one or more of the oars, it is a sign of the death of your father, mother, or guardian, or of some one to whom you look for protection: if an engaged young girl or a married woman dreams this, it foretells the death of a lover or husband.
