ANSWER: I hope you don’t mind but I kept the essence of your long description and left the the details out of this question to save on length and exposing details to others.
I would interpret this as a good dream. It appears to show you being accepted as a follower of a particular deity, and for that to have been your request at some point in time. I believe the deity you met is Adad, a deity known in Babylonia, Assyria and Aleppo. He is known as the god of oracles and divination, which seems to suit your path, and his sarcastic comment to you.
I would understand seeing ‘x’ everywhere after the dream would mean you are on the right path still – X does mark the spot after all.
