A very satisfactory omen, if beautiful and gaily-dressed people are dancing to the strains of entrancing music.

If you feel gloomy and distressed at the inattention of others, a death in the family may be expected soon.

If you are playing some sort of ball game as a sport you will soon be hearing some good news.

If the ball you dream of is a gala event complete with music then the interpretation is somewhat different.

It is a very good omen if you are having fun and enjoying the music and dancing but if it should be a masquerade ball you should watch out for an enemy posing as a good friend.

Watching a ball game, or a dance from the sidelines, show that you must overcome shyness to join in the fun.
