A change in the dreamer’s present condition; a rainbow in the East denotes benefits to the poor and the sick; in the West good for the rich but not for the poor. Overhead, a change in fortune; sometimes ruin and death to the dreamer and his family. On the right it is good, at the left ill, judging right and left according to the sun, but wherever it appears it brings good to poverty and affliction by changing the air (Artemidorus). Modern oneirocritics regard the rainbow as an invariable sign of failure.
