From MDS Dream Motifs
(1) Is the dragon guarding a treasure, or a cave which might contain treasure? If so, the cave probably represesnts your unconscious, the treasure represents yourself, the dragon that stands between you and your true self represents the fearsomeness of the unconscious for one who is still afraid of what may be lurking there.

(2) For Jung, the first stage of the individuation process is the conscious ego's heroic struggle to lift itself out of the orginal all-encompassing unconsciousness and to establish control of unconscious forces. This finds symbolic representation in the legendary drago-slayer, St George (St George = the ego; the dragon = the unconscious).

(3) The dragon may represent the devouring aspect of (your relationship with) your mother. 'Slaying the dragon' may therefore mean putting an end to whatever in your attachment to your mother is detrimental to the process of finding your own psychic individuality. Once the individual has achieved liberation from the 'dragon', the feminine side of the man's psyche and the masculine side of the woman's psyche will no longer appear in threatening form, but as an indispensable companion and guide in further stages of self-development.

(4) A dragon may represent the generative power of (Mother) Nature; the unconscious, felt as womb pregnant with new possibilities of life.

(5) A winged dragon may symbolize some kind of transcendence, some passing from 'lower' to 'higher' level of personal maturity.

(6) A dragon may be a symbol for your sexuality, particularily if it - your sexuality - frightens you. Is your fear irrationsal; or does sexuality threaten to rule your life? In either case, don't kill the 'dragon'; if necessary tame it. (In China, 'chi' is good, life-giving energy and the channels it runs along are called 'dragon-lines', which are said to follow underground water and underground magnetic fields).

Moon - Fertility, new growth. See Sun-Moon

Mortuary - Perhaps your unconscious is confronting you with the fact of mortality in order to change your perspective, or ambitions or values.

Mother - May be telling you something about your relationship with your mother. Mother may symbolize the unconscious, especially the spiritual aspect (goddess). See Father-Mother

(3) Mother may symbolize the unconscious; intuitive self; natural instinctive life; the source of nourishment and growth for the psyche.

From HyperDictionary.com
Seeing mountains in your dream means many major obstacles and challenges that you have to overcome. If you are on top of the mountain, then it means that you have achieved and realized your goals. Alternatively, mountains indicates a higher realm of consciousness, knowledge, and spiritual truth. Dreaming that you are climbing a mountain means your determination and ambition. Dreaming that you fall off a mountain, suggests that you are in a hurry to succeed without thoroughly thinking about your path to success. It also means that you have a tendency to give up or escape from demanding situations.
Mouth - May be a sexual symbol, representing the vagina (Freud).Self-expression. Is there some part of you that has not been allowed to express itself, such as your creative self? Are you bottling up your emotions? Perhaps something is threatening to swallow you up.

Movies - Your true life on display; follow the scenes in the dream. Scenes depict current thinking, emotions, perceptions, relationships and provide insights on problems without a bias, as they really are and not always as you perceive them in your waking life. The characters in the movie often represent different aspects of yourself. You are the producer and director and have control. Change what needs to be change.

Moving - Making changes in your life {waking conscious or unconsciously wanting or needing to}.

Murder - Repressed hostility or resentment towards someone or something. If your are being murdered, it represents a repressed emotion that is threatening to mutinty if not recognized by your conscious self.

From HyperDictionary.com
Dreaming that you have committed a murder indicates that you are putting an end to an old habit and your former ways of thinking. This could also mean an end to an addiction. Alternatively, you may have some repressed aggression or rage at yourself or at others. Dreaming that you witness a murder indicates deep-seated anger towards somebody. Consider how the victim represents aspects of yourself that you want to destroy or eliminate. Dreaming that you are murdered, suggests that some important and significant relationship has been severed and you are trying to disconnect yourself from your emotions. It also represents your unused talents. Note also that dreams of murder occur frequently during periods of depression.
Museum - Your past. Your collective unconscious (that part of you that ahs access to the collective world).If so your dream is showing you something of great value.
