The rule regarding dreams is finished ||70||
1Whatever is said to be the rule regarding dreams which arises from the signs, the same is to be said of the signs’ dvadasamsas; or a dream is to be described in accordance with the characteristics and forms of the Decanates, or as the navamsa of the (several) signs are in the ascendant.
2Because of the Sun being in Aries (in the ascendant), he sees in his dream such things as gold and kings, and quadrupeds; because of the Moon, water and women; because of Jupiter, advisors (mantrin), Brahmanas, and deities; because of Venus, women, men, and ornaments;

4If the Sun is in Taurus, one should say that he dreams of elephants, forests, and quadrupeds; if the Moon, of women, kings, and deities; if Jupiter, of horses and steeds with beautiful markings; if Venus, of women’s limbs, clothes, and ornaments;

11Because of Mars, swords raised to the sky; because of Mercury, verbal fights and slaughters; and because of Saturn, things which are dead, struck, injured, split, and smashed.

13Because of Mercury, images of the gods and ascetics; because of Mars, lightning, flames, and thieves; and because of Saturn, weeping for those who have died or run away.

15Because of Mars, of warriors and those who hold weapons in their hands; because of Mercury, of those who produce treasuries of such things as vessels, and wealth; and because of Saturn, of elders (vrddha), women, great men, those who are intent on ceremonies, or the highest people.
16If the Sun is in Scorpio, the man sees in his dream such things as carnivorous animals, fire, victims, and killer; if the Moon, lamentations for the dead and oppressed; if Jupiter, drugs, cows, possessions, and golden objects; if Venus, food, women, cows, and things which are prepared;
17If Mercury, grain and victuals; if Mars, injury from copper (tamra) swords and blood; and if Saturn, bondage, murder, impotence, and a lack of protection.
18Because of the Sun being in Sagittarius, he sees outstanding leaders (mukhya) or elephants; because of the Moon, Brahmanas, elders (guru), or gods; because of Jupiter, sacrifices, Brahmagas, horses, and elephants; because of Venus, spies, women, and elders (guru) ;

25If Mars, of elephants or a broken and destroyed object; if Mercury, of Brahmanas, youths, or ascetics (yati); and if Saturn, of ghosts (Preta), Pisacas, or water-Raksasas.
26One should establish properly this procedure and the nature of the planet in the sign according to the rules; one should know the dreams from the planets and the signs and navamsas in the ascendant and descendent.
27If a dvadasamsa is in its own sign in a favorable ascendant, the dream receives the described influences of that sign; but if the dvadsamsa of another sign (is in the ascendant), the significance is changed by their established mutual modifications.
28Knowing that the signs (which rise) in one night are town signs, water signs, or forest signs, and movable, fixed, or of two natures, and knowing that the planets are either without friends or without enemies, one should establish the rule regarding dreams.
29Whatever was said to be the previously prescribed procedure with regard to evil in the rule concerning thoughts, they say it is also (true with respect to) dreams. (The dream) is good if the benefit planets are in good signs, but bad if the malefic planets are in had signs.
