LADDER: To go up a ladder, high in life you’ll ascend. But to descend the same you’ll come to a bad end.
-from Madame Zadkiel’s Fortune Teller and Mirror of Fate
LADDER: Coming down = dishonor
Going up = false hopes
Putting up = being robbed
Seeing or using = bettering of circumstances, wealth and honor, happy matrimonial life.
-from Mehemet Ali’s Oriental Interpretation of Dreams
LADDER: To dream of a ladder being raised for you to ascend to some height, your energetic and nervy qualifications will raise you into prominence in business affairs.
To ascend a ladder, means prosperity and unstinted happiness.
To fall from one, denotes despondency and unsuccessful transactions to the tradesman, and blasted crops to the farmer.
To see a broken ladder, betokens failure in every instance.
To descend a ladder, is disappointment in business, and unrequited desires.
To escape from captivity, or confinement, by means of a ladder, you will be successful, though many perilous paths may intervene.
To grow dizzy as you ascend a ladder, denotes that you will not wear new honors serenely. You are likely to become haughty and domineering in your newly acquired position.
