Occasionally, I do dream about books. Since they are such an integral part of my life, I suppose this is only natural. They are one of the great loves of my life! Last year a dear friend gave me a book she found in a secondhand shop titled Your Horoscope and Your Dreams. I hadn’t paid much attention to the book, since I ususally don’t put much store in horoscopes or dream interpretation. However, in December of this past year something interesting happened. I had a dream that I was fishing and caught a fish. According to the dream interpretation book I had been given, this dream “is a forerunner of illness.” I was very ill for almost two months with acute bronchitis. Interesting!
Well, what do dreams about books mean you ask? Here goes: To dream of books and reading denotes pleasant days and honor and riches if you study them. For an author to dream of his own manuscript going to press means caution; he will encounter difficulties in placing it before the public. To see children at their books predicts harmony and good behavior among young people. To dream of old books is a warning to avoid the appearance of evil.
Wait there is more! To dream of a bookcase is a sign that you will apply yourself diligently both to your work and recreation. To see an empty bookcase presages loss of position due to lack of education. Book ends in a dream predict the accomplishment of a favorite project. If you dream of using a bookmark, you will keep an appointment that will be of benefit to you. A book plate is an augury that you will lose caste through selfishness if you dream of pasting a book plate that will be of benefit to you.
If you dream that you are a bookseller you will have friends that are both intellectual and agreeable. It is considered lucky to dream of talking with a bookseller. According to Your Horoscope and Your Dreams, if you visit a bookstore in your dream, you will become a writer, but your literary attempts will interfere with your regular work and pleasure.
Finally, for someone to call you a bookworm in a dream is a presage of quite happy hours. Loss of money is predicted if you use the name for somebody else.
I hope you find this information as interesting as I do! I can’t vouch for the accuracy of the dream interpretations, other than to offer my anecdote about the fishing dream. Well, I think it is time for a nap….
