To dream of writing with a steel pen, is a sign you will get yourself into a bad scrape, by tattling about your friends and neighbors. If the pen be gold, it foreshadows good news, and success in business and love affairs. To dream you are making a quill pen, is a sign you have many enemies, but that you will triumph over them, and be successful in all you undertake. But this dream does not amount to much, as it is only a  “set-off” to dreaming of a pen-knife, which is a bad omen.

To see a man controlling a lion in its cage, or out denotes success in business and great mental power. You will be favorably regarded by women. To see young lions, denotes new enterprises, which will bring success if properly attended. For a young woman to dream of young lions, denotes new and fascinating lovers. For a woman to dream that she sees Daniel in the lions' den, signifies that by her intellectual qualifications and personal magnetism she will win fortune and lovers to her highest desire.

To see a lion's head over you, showing his teeth by snarls, you are threatened with defeat in your upward rise to power. To see a lion's skin, denotes a rise to fortune and happiness. To ride one, denotes courage and persistency in surmounting difficulties.
