To dream of a cable, foretells the undertaking of a decidedly hazardous work, which, if successfully carried to completion, will abound in riches and honor to you.
To dream of receiving cablegrams, denotes that a message of importance will reach you soon, and will cause disagreeable comments.
To dream of a large cable supporting a heavy weight denotes that you have a very hazardous job and is a warning to be extremely careful.
If the cable should be frayed, danger is imminent.
But, if it is broken, or you see it break, then the danger you sense will be for another.
