of seeing cabbage green, means unfaithfulness in love
and infidelity in wedlock. To cut heads of cabbage,
denotes that you are tightening the cords of calamity
around you by lavish expenditure.
Cabin The cabin of a ship is
rather unfortunate to be in in a dream. Some mischief is
brewing for you. You will most likely be engaged in a

Cage In your dreaming if you see
a cage full of birds, you will be the happy possessor of
immense wealth and many beautiful and charming children.

wealthy marriage. No bird indicates a member of the
family lost, either by elopement or death. To see wild
animals caged, denotes that you will triumph over your
enemies and misfortunes. If you are in the cage with

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.

vigorous old age.

Camp To dream of camping in the
open air, you may expect a change in your affairs, 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. For a young woman to dream that she is in a
camp, denotes that 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.
Campaign 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'

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 overconfidence 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.
Cancer To have one successfully
treated in a dream, denotes a sudden rise from obscure
poverty to wealthy surroundings. To dream of a cancer,
denotes illness of some one near you, 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.
Candles 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 an unexpected offer of marriage and a pleasant
visit to distant relatives. 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 sorrowful news.
Friends are dead or in distressful straits.
Candlestick 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.
Candy 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.

dream, foretells favorable advancement will be made
toward fortune. To see it cut, denotes absolute failure
in all undertakings.
Canker To dream of seeing canker
on anything, is an omen of evil. It foretells death and
treacherous companions for the young. Sorrow and
loneliness to the aged. Cankerous growths in the flesh,
denote future distinctions either as head of State or
stage life. 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.
Cannon 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.
Cannon-Ball 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.
Canoe 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.
Canopy 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.

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. For a young woman to dream that she is
a captive, denotes that she will have a husband who will
be jealous of her confidence in others or she may be
censured for her indiscretion.
Cardinal 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
Cards 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 cozy surroundings spades signify that you will be a
widow and encumbered with a large estate.

denotes journeying and changing in quick succession. To
get on one shows that travel which you held in
contemplation will be made under different auspices than
had been calculated upon. To miss one, foretells that
you will be foiled in an attempt to forward your
prospects. To get off of one, denotes that you will
succeed with some interesting schemes which will fill
you with self congratulations. To dream of

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,

from the absent. Some friend lies at death's door but if

while seemingly harmless, will prove a source of sorrow
and loss of wealth. 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. To dream of seeing
