will retain the love of former associates, though your position
will take you above their circle.

_Admonish_.

To admonish your child, or son, or some young person,
denotes that your generous principles will keep you in favor,
and fortune will be added to your gifts.

_Adopted_.

To see your adopted child, or parent, in your dreams, indicates that you
will amass fortune through the schemes and speculations of strangers.

To dream that you or others are adopting a child, you will make
an unfortunate change in your abode.

_Adultery_.[10]

To dream that you commit adultery, foretells that you will be
arrainged{sic} for some illegal action. If a woman has this dream,
she will fail to hold her husband's affections, letting her
temper and spite overwhelm her at the least provocation.
If it is with her husband's friend, she will be unjustly ignored
by her husband. Her rights will be cruelly trampled upon by him.
If she thinks she is enticing a youth into this act, she will be
in danger of desertion and divorced for her open intriguing.

For a young woman this implies abasement and low desires,
in which she will find strange adventures afford her pleasure.

[10] It is always good to dream that you have successfully resisted
any temptation. To yield, is bad. If a man chooses low ideals, vampirish
influences will swarm around him ready to help him in his nefarious designs.
Such dreams may only be the result of depraved elementary influences.
If a man chooses high ideals, he will be illuminated by the deific
principle within him, and will be exempt from lascivious dreams.
The man who denies the existence and power of evil spirits has no arcana
or occult knowledge. Did not the black magicians of Pharaoh's time,
and Simon Magnus, the Sorcerer, rival the men of God? The dreamer
of amorous sweets is warned to beware of scandal.

_Adulation_.

To dream that you seek adulation, foretells that you will pompously
fill unmerited positions of honor.

If you offer adulation, you will expressly part with some dear
belonging in the hope of furthering material interests.

_Advancement_.

to preferment and to the consummation of affairs of the heart.

of favor near you.

_Adversary_.[11]

To dream that you meet or engage with an adversary, denotes that
you will promptly defend any attacks on your interest.
Sickness may also threaten you after this dream.

If you overcome an adversary, you will escape the effect
of some serious disaster.

[11] See Enemies.

_Adventurer_.

To dream that you are victimized by an adventurer, proves that you
will be an easy prey for flatterers and designing villains.
You will be unfortunate in manipulating your affairs to
a smooth consistency.

For a young woman to think she is an adventuress, portends that she
will be too wrapped up in her own conduct to see that she is being
flattered into exchanging her favors for disgrace.

_Adversity_.

To dream that you are in the clutches of adversity, denotes that you
will have failures and continued bad prospects.

To see others in adversity, portends gloomy surroundings, and the illness
of some one will produce grave fears of the successful working of plans.[12]

[12] The old dream books give this as a sign of coming prosperity.
This definition is untrue. There are two forces at work in man, one from
within and the other from without. They are from two distinct spheres;
the animal mind influenced by the personal world of carnal appetites,
and the spiritual mind from the realm of universal Brotherhood,
present antagonistic motives on the dream consciousness. If these two
forces were in harmony, the spirit or mental picture from the dream
mind would find a literal fulfilment in the life of the dreamer.
The pleasurable sensations of the body cause the spirit anguish.
The selfish enrichment of the body impoverishes the spirit influence upon
the Soul. The trials of adversity often cause the spirit to rejoice
and the flesh to weep. If the cry of the grieved spirit is left
on the dream mind it may indicate to the dreamer worldly advancement,
but it is hardly the theory of the occult forces, which have contributed
to the contents of this book.

_Advertisement_.

To dream that you are getting out advertisements, denotes that you
will have to resort to physical labor to promote your interest,
or establish your fortune.

To read advertisements, denotes that enemies will overtake you,
and defeat you in rivalry.

_Advice_.

To dream that you receive advice, denotes that you will be enabled to raise
your standard of integrity, and strive by honest means to reach independent
competency and moral altitude.

To dream that you seek legal advice, foretells that there will
be some transactions in your affairs which will create doubt
of their merits and legality.

_Advocate_.

To dream that you advocate any cause, denotes that you will be faithful
to your interests, and endeavor to deal honestly with the public,
as your interests affect it, and be loyal to your promises to friends.

_Afraid_.

To feel that you are afraid to proceed with some affair, or continue
a journey, denotes that you will find trouble in your household,
and enterprises will be unsuccessful.

To see others afraid, denotes that some friend will be deterred
from performing some favor for you because of his own difficulties.

For a young woman to dream that she is afraid of a dog,
there will be a possibility of her doubting a true friend.

_Africa_.

To dream that you are in Africa surrounded by Cannibals, foretells that you
will be oppressed by enemies and quarrelsome persons.

For a woman to dream of African scenes, denotes she will make journeys
which will prove lonesome and devoid of pleasure or profit.

friendships which will be lasting and entertaining. A cloudy,
rainy afternoon, implies disappointment and displeasure.

her in a compromising situation with a stranger, or to jeopardize
her interests with a friend.

_Affluence_.[14]

To dream that you are in affluence, foretells that you will make
fortunate ventures, and will be pleasantly associated with
people of wealth. To young women, a vision of weird and fairy
affluence is ominous of illusive and evanescent pleasure.
They should study more closely their duty to friends and parents.
After dreams of this nature they are warned to cultivate a love
for home life.

To see agate in a dream, signifies a slight advancement in business affairs.

down upon you the indignation of relatives.

than she is, denotes that she will fall into bad companionship,
and her denial of stated things will be brought to scorn.

of the future.
