As the Gemara previously interpreted homiletically: bWhat isthe meaning of the word b“Your temples [ irakatekh /i]”? Even the most ignorant [ ireikanin /i] among you,Israel, bare full of mitzvot like a pomegranate. /b, bOne who sees olives in a dream,and they were bsmall,it is a sign that bhis business will flourish, increase and be durable like olives.However, the Gemara adds a caveat, saying that bthis applies onlywhen he sees the bfruitof an olive tree; bbut,one who sees olive btrees,it is a sign that bhe will have many children, as it is stated: “Your children like olive plants,round about your table” (Psalms 128:3). bSome say that one who sees an olive tree in a dream,it is a sign that ba good reputation will spread for him, as it is stated:“The Lord called your name ba leafy olive tree, fair with goodly fruit”(Jeremiah 11:16). bOne who sees olive oil in a dream should anticipate the light of Torah, as it is stated: “That they bring unto you pure olive oilbeaten for the light” (Exodus 27:20). bOne who sees palm trees [ itemarim /i] in a dreamhas seen a sign that bhis transgressions have ceased, as it is stated: “Your iniquity is finished, O daughter of Zion”(Lamentations 4:22), as the Gemara likens itemara /i, date, to itam ra /i, evil has ceased., bRav Yosef says: One who sees a goat in a dream,it is a sign that bhis year will be blessed;one who sees bgoats, his years will be blessed, as it is stated: “And there will be goats’ milk enough for your food,for the food of your household; and sustece for your maidens” (Proverbs 27:27). bOne who sees myrtle in a dream,it is a sign that bhis property will be successful. And if he does notown bproperty,it is a sign that bhe will receive an inheritance. Ulla said, and some say it was taught in a ibaraita /i: Thisapplies exclusively to a case bwhere he sawthem bon their stem. One who sees a citron [ ietrog /i] in a dreamhas seen a sign that bhe is honored [ ihadur /i] before his Creator, as it is statedwith regard to the citron: b“The fruit of goodly trees [ ihadar /i], branches of palm trees”(Leviticus 23:40). bOne who sees a palm branch [ ilulav /i] in a dream,it is a sign that bhe has but one heart for his Father in heaven. iLulavis interpreted homiletically as ilo lev /i, he has a heart., bOne who sees a goose in a dream should anticipate wisdom, as it is stated: “Wisdoms cry aloud in the streets,she utters her voice in the broad places” (Proverbs 1:20); geese tend to sound their voices.

If one saw that the eggs bbroke,it is a sign that bhis requesthas already been bgranted,as that which was hidden inside the shell was revealed. bThe same is true of nuts, and the same is true of cucumbers, and the same is true of all glass vessels, and the same is true of anything similarly fragilethat broke in his dream, it is a sign that his request was granted., bOnewho dreams that bhe entered a city,it is a sign that bhis desires will be fulfilled, as it is stated: “And He led them unto their desired haven”(Psalms 107:30). bOne who shaves his head in a dream, it is a good omen for him,as the removal of undesired hairs is a sign of renewal and greatness.

One who stands naked in Babylonia in a dream,it is a sign that bhe stands free of transgression.Although living outside Israel is itself a transgression, his nakedness symbolizes that he has been absolved of that sin.

Onewho dreams that bhe was apprehendedand guarded bby a soldier [ isardeyot /i],it is a sign that bprotection was provided himby heaven. If he sees that bhe is wearing a neck chain [ ikolar /i],it is a sign that bthey have increased his level of protection.However, the Gemara notes that bthis only appliesto a case where his neck was placed bin a neck chain; ifhis neck was bsimplyplaced in ba noose, it does notindicate heavenly protection., bOne who enters a marsh in a dream,it is a sign that bhe will become head of a yeshiva,as he appears to be standing alone with all the bulrushes, large and small, surrounding him like the head of a yeshiva, around whom all the students gather.

Rav Huna, son of Rav Yehoshua,who saw bthat he entered a forestin his dream, bwas appointed head of the advanced students. Some say that both of themdreamed that bthey entered a marsh,but bRav Pappa,who dreamed bthat a drum hungfrom his neck, bwas appointed head of the yeshiva,as banging a drum symbolizes the head of a yeshiva who sounds his voice in public. bRav Huna, son of Rav Yehoshua,who bdid notdream bthat a drum hung aroundhis neck, bwasonly bappointed head of the advanced students. Rav Ashi said: Idreamed that bI entered a marsh and hung a drum and beat it,and Rav Ashi became head of the yeshiva.,The itanna /iwho recited imishnayot bbefore Rav Naḥman bar Yitzḥak taught: One who lets blood in a dream,it is a sign that bhis transgressions have been forgiven,because red, the color of blood, is a metaphor for sin: “Though your sins be as scarlet…though they be red like crimson” (Isaiah 1:18). Consequently, bloodletting can symbolize transgressions leaving him.,The Gemara asks: bWas it not taughtin a ibaraita /i: One who sees that he is letting-blood in a dream, it is a sign that bhis transgressions are enumerated before him?The Gemara answers: bWhatis meant by benumerated?This means that they are benumerated to be forgiven. /b,The itanna /iwho recited imishnayot bbefore Rav Sheshet taught: One who sees a snake in a dream,it is a sign that bhis livelihood is accessible to himjust as dust is readily accessible to a snake. If one saw that the snake bbit himin his dream, it is a sign that his livelihood bwill double.If bhe killedthe snake, it is a sign that bhe will lose his livelihood. Rav Sheshet said tothe itanna /i: On the contrary, if one dreamed that he killed the snake it is a sign that ball the more so his livelihood will double.The Gemara remarks: bBut that is not so. Rav Sheshet saw a snake in his dream and killed it,so he sought to interpret his dream positively.,The itanna /iwho recited imishnayot bbefore Rabbi Yoḥa taught: One who sees any kind of drink in a dream it isa bgoodomen, bexcept for wine,as bthere isone bwho drinks itin a dream band it isa bgoodomen bfor him, and there isone bwho drinks itin a dream band it isa bbadomen bfor him.The Gemara elaborates: bThere isone bwho drinkswine band it isa bgoodomen bfor him, as it is stated: “And wine that makes glad the heart of man”(Psalms 104:15), band there isone bwho drinks itin a dream band it isa bbadomen bfor him, as it is stated: “Give strong drink unto him that is ready to perish and wine unto the bitter in soul”(Proverbs 31:6)., bRabbi Yoḥa said to the itanna: /iYou should bteachthat for ba Torah scholar,a dream of wine is balwaysa bgoodomen, bas it is stated: “Come, eat of my bread and drink of the wine which I have mingled”(Proverbs 9:5).
