To see only one bird, you will contract a desirable and wealthy marriage.
No bird indicates a member of the family lost, either by elopement or death.

opportunity for the enterprising. Those in love will prosper.

Pound cake is significant of much pleasure either from society or business.
For a young woman to dream of her wedding cake is the only bad luck cake
in the category. Baking them is not so good an omen as seeing them
or eating them.


To dream of calomel shows some person is seeking to deceive
and injure you through the unconscious abetting of friends.
For a young woman to dream of taking it, foretells that she will be
victimized through the artful designing of persons whom she trusts.

in order to enjoy a short season of pleasure.

To hear your name called in a dream by strange voices,
denotes that your business will fall into a precarious state,
and that strangers may lend you assistance, or you may fail

To hear the voice of a friend or relative, denotes the desperate
illness of some one of them, and may be death; in the latter
case you may be called upon to stand as guardian over some one,
in governing whom you should use much discretion.

Lovers hearing the voice of their affianced should heed the warning.
If they have been negligent in attention they should make amends.
Otherwise they may suffer separation from misunderstanding.

To hear the voice of the dead may be a warning of your own serious
illness or some business worry from bad judgment may ensue.
The voice is an echo thrown back from the future on the subjective mind,
taking the sound of your ancestor's voice from coming in contact
with that part of your ancestor which remains with you.
A certain portion of mind matter remains the same in lines
of family descent.


To dream of keeping a calendar, indicates that you will be very orderly
and systematic in habits throughout the year.

great patience and fortitude in time of almost unbearable
anguish and failures that will seemingly sweep every vestige

also prepare to make a long and wearisome journey.

To see a camping settlement, many of your companions will remove
to new estates and your own prospects will appear gloomy.

her lover will have trouble in getting her to name a day
for their wedding, and that he will prove a kind husband.
If in a military camp she will marry the first time she
has a chance.

A married woman after dreaming of being in a soldier's camp
is in danger of having her husband's name sullied, and divorce
courts may be her destination.


To dream of making a political one, signifies your opposition to
approved ways of conducting business, and you will set up original
plans for yourself regardless of enemies' working against you.
Those in power will lose.

If it is a religious people conducting a campaign against sin,

courageous in time of need.


To see cane growing in your dream, foretells favorable advancement

To have one successfully treated in a dream, denotes a sudden

and quarrels with those you love. Depressions may follow
to the man of affairs after this dream.

To dream of a cancer, foretells sorrow in its ugliest phase.
Love will resolve itself into cold formality, and business
will be worrying and profitless.


To see the water of a canal muddy and stagnant-looking, portends
sickness and disorders of the stomach and dark designs of enemies.
But if its waters are clear a placid life and the devotion of friends
is before you.

For a young woman to glide in a canoe across a canal, denotes a chaste life
and an adoring husband. If she crossed the canal on a bridge over clear
water and gathers ferns and other greens on the banks, she will enjoy a life
of ceaseless rounds of pleasure and attain to high social distinction.
But if the water be turbid she will often find herself tangled in meshes
of perplexity and will be the victim of nervous troubles.

_Canary Birds_. To dream of this sweet songster, denotes
unexpected pleasures. For the young to dream of possessing
a beautiful canary, denotes high class honors and a successful
passage through the literary world, or a happy termination
of love's young dream.

To dream one is given you, indicates a welcome legacy.
To give away a canary, denotes that you will suffer disappointment
in your dearest wishes.

To dream that one dies, denotes the unfaithfulness of dear friends.

Advancing, fluttering, and singing canaries, in luxurious apartments,
denotes feasting and a life of exquisite refinement,
wealth, and satisfying friendships. If the light is weird
or unnaturally bright, it augurs that you are entertaining
illusive hopes. Your over-confidence is your worst enemy.
A young woman after this dream should beware, lest flattering
promises react upon her in disappointment. Fairy-like scenes
in a dream are peculiarly misleading and treacherous to women.


To see them burning with a clear and steady flame, denotes the constancy
of those about you and a well-grounded fortune.

For a maiden to dream that she is molding candles, denotes that she will have

If she is lighting a candle, she will meet her lover clandestinely because
of parental objections.

To see a candle wasting in a draught, enemies are circulating
detrimental reports about you.

To snuff a candle, portends sorowful{sic} news. Friends are dead
or in distressful straits.


To see a candlestick bearing a whole candle, denotes that a bright future
lies before you filled with health, happiness and loving companions.
If empty, the reverse.


To dream of seeing canker on anything, is an omen of evil.
It foretells death and treacherous companions for the young.

[31] The last definition is not consistent with other parts of this book,
but I let it stand, as I find it among my automatic writings.


This dream denotes that one's home and country are in danger
of foreign intrusion, from which our youth will suffer from
the perils of war.

For a young woman to hear or see cannons, denotes she will be a soldier's wife
and will have to bid him godspeed as he marches in defense of her and honor.

The reader will have to interpret dreams of this character
by the influences surrounding him, and by the experiences stored
away in his subjective mind. If you have thought about cannons
a great deal and you dream of them when there is no war, they are
most likely to warn you against struggle and probable defeat.
Or if business is manipulated by yourself successful engagements
after much worry and ill luck may ensue.


This means that secret enemies are uniting against you. For a maid
to see a cannon-ball, denotes that she will have a soldier sweetheart.
For a youth to see a cannon-ball, denotes that he will be called upon
to defend his country.


To paddle a canoe on a calm stream, denotes your perfect confidence
in your own ability to conduct your business in a profitable way.

To row with a sweetheart, means an early marriage and fidelity.
To row on rough waters you will have to tame a shrew before you
attain connubial bliss. Affairs in the business world will
prove disappointing after you dream of rowing in muddy waters.
If the waters are shallow and swift, a hasty courtship or stolen pleasures,
from which there can be no lasting good, are indicated.

Shallow, clear and calm waters in rowing, signifies happiness
of a pleasing character, but of short duration.

Water is typical of futurity in the dream realms. If a pleasant immediate
future awaits the dreamer he will come in close proximity with clear water.
Or if he emerges from disturbed watery elements into waking life the near
future is filled with crosses for him.


To dream of making candy, denotes profit accruing from industry.

To dream of eating crisp, new candy, implies social
pleasures and much love-making among the young and old.
Sour candy is a sign of illness or that disgusting annoyances
will grow out of confidences too long kept.

To receive a box of bonbons, signifies to a young person
that he or she will be the recipient of much adulation.
It generally means prosperity. If you send a box you will make
a proposition, but will meet with disappointment.


To dream of a canopy or of being beneath one, denotes that false
friends are influencing you to undesirable ways of securing gain.
You will do well to protect those in your care.


For a woman to dream of seeing a cap, she will be invited to take
part in some festivity.

For a girl to dream that she sees her sweetheart with a cap on,

you in time of danger.

to deal with, and if you cannot escape, that injury and misfortune
will befall you.

To dream of taking any one captive, you will join yourself to pursuits
and persons of lowest status.

will have a husband who will be jealous of her confidence in others;

will be realized. If a woman dreams that her lover is a captain, she will

schemes which will fill you with self congratulations.

wealth is animated by the desire of gratifying selfish and lewd
principles which should be mastered and controlled.

To see street-cars in your dreams, denotes that some person is actively
interested in causing you malicious trouble and disquiet.

To ride on a car, foretells that rivalry and jealousy will
enthrall your happiness.

To stand on the platform of a street-car while it is running, denotes you
will attempt to carry on an affair which will be extremely dangerous,
but if you ride without accident you will be successful.

If the platform is up high, your danger will be more apparent,
but if low, you will barely accomplish your purpose.


It is unlucky to dream you see a cardinal in his robes.
You will meet such misfortunes as will necessitate your removal
to distant or foreign lands to begin anew your ruined fortune.
For a woman to dream this is a sign of her downfall through
false promises. If priest or preacher is a spiritual adviser
and his services are supposed to be needed, especially in
the hour of temptation, then we find ourselves dreaming of him
as a warning against approaching evil.


If playing them in your dreams with others for social pastime, you will
meet with fair realization of hopes that have long buoyed you up.
Small ills will vanish. But playing for stakes will involve you
in difficulties of a serious nature.

If you lose at cards you will encounter enemies.
If you win you will justify yourself in the eyes of the law,
but will have trouble in so doing.

If a young woman dreams that her sweetheart is playing at cards,
she will have cause to question his good intentions.

In social games, seeing diamonds indicate wealth; clubs, that your partner
in life will be exacting, and that you may have trouble in explaining
your absence at times; hearts denote fidelity and cosy surroundings;
spades signify that you will be a widow and encumbered with a large estate.


To dream that you are participating in a carnival, portends that you are soon
to enjoy some unusual pleasure or recreation. A carnival when masks are used,
or when incongruous or clownish figures are seen, implies discord in the home;
business will be unsatisfactory and love unrequited.

your time if you would keep supplies for your family.

to aid you in need.

as well as a profitable one.

To dream of a cat, denotes ill luck, if you do not succeed
in killing it or driving it from your sight. If the cat
attacks you, you will have enemies who will go to any extreme
to blacken your reputation and to cause you loss of property.
But if you succeed in banishing it, you will overcome great
obstacles and rise in fortune and fame.

If you meet a thin, mean and dirty-looking cat, you will have
bad news from the absent. Some friend lies at death's door;
but if you chase it out of sight, your friend will recover
after a long and lingering sickness.

To hear the scream or the mewing of a cat, some false friend is using

from you the profits of a deal that you have spent many days making.

while seemingly harmless, will prove a source of sorrow and

When a merchant dreams of a cat, he should put his best energies to work,
as his competitors are about to succeed in demolishing his standard
of dealing, and he will be forced to other measures if he undersells
others and still succeeds.

the beginning of an angry struggle. It denotes that an enemy
is being entertained by you with the intention of using him

knowledge of his actions, as you are fearful that things divulged,
concerning your private life, may become public.

is in store for you. If the calf has stolen the milk, it signifies that
you are about to lose your lover by slowness to show your reciprocity,

favorite in society and win the heart of a loyal person.
For business, this dream indicates profit from sales.
