Fagot Definition from Social Science Dictionaries & Glossaries
Dream Dictionary
If you dream of seeing a dense smoke ascending from a pile of fagots, it denotes that enemies are bearing down upon you, but if the fagots are burning brightly, you will escape from all unpleasant complications and enjoy great prosperity.

If you walk on burning fagots, you will be injured by the unwise actions of friends. If you succeed in walking on them without being burned, you will have a miraculous rise in prospects.

To dream of seeing fagots piled up to burn you at the stake, signifies that you are threatened with loss, but if you escape, you will enjoy a long and prosperous life.
