If a woman, not pregnant, dreams of giving birth to a child, it is a sign that she will consummate happily her undertakings; should the dreamer be a maiden, it signifies banquets, rejoicings, dances and nuptials, but sometimes the pains and perils of maternity.
Should you dream of seeing a woman in childbirth, it denotes joy and prosperity to the dreamer.
To dream of a person inflicting upon you wounds while in a state of anger, denotes that you will receive benefits at his hands in proportion to the vehemence of his anger and the period of its duration.
Should a woman dream of being wounded, or of wounding another in self-defense, it predicts that she will reap some public honor. Should she assail, in her dream, some man, with intent to wound him, it is a sign, should she be married, that she will give birth to a male child, who will become a soldier or sailor.
