I dreamt of a cage

Your dreams have a meaning

Whether funny, exciting, scary or unsettling, the dreams we experience during sleep all have a meaning or a symbolism of some sorts: although cryptic at times, your experiences during the awake time may be affecting not just the sleep quality, but what you are dreaming of as well. Therefore, here are the meanings of your dreams.

Dream meaning: being in a cage

Surprisingly common, dreaming of being in a cage is a sign that you are currently going through a phase in your life where you feel blocked and powerless to change, or to commit to any changes. You perhaps may be unable to see the solution to a problem you are facing with your business, job or relationship, and this is stopping you from enjoying your life as you should. On the other hand, you might simply feel restrained by family or friends. Someone may be stopping you from enjoying your freedom. Being in a cage shouldn’t scare you, as there is always a key you may not be seeing right now due to your circumstances.

Dream meaning: caging someone or something

Dreaming of taming a lion or a strong person is a symbol of your ability to control a difficult situation, and how much you struggle to handle the symbolic beast as it enters the cage is a sign of how difficult the hardship you are facing is.
Are you barely in control, or do you dominate the symbolic struggle? Your body is admitting to yourself how difficult your situation is, and how well you are handling it.

However, it doesn’t have to be a fight: To peacefully cage someone is a dream that symbolises the relationship you have with yourself, rather than with others. You probably believe in your ability to control your own impulses. Chances are, you have recently been sad or angry, recently, and feel ready to recover. 

If your animal is a bird in the cage, you are probably experiencing a melancholic phase where your spirituality, mental or emotional strength is being challenged by circumstances that you are finding overwhelming. Do you feel caged? Today might just be the day to break free.

Plan of action

  • Believe in yourself a lot more: If you got so far in life, it has been entirely because of you! Remember that tasks that seem impossible now will be remembered as easy, if you give yourself time.
  • Recover in a way that is healthy: When faced with hardship or sudden loss of a relationship, people may turn to harmful substances, such as drugs or alcohol, or overwork to block out the feeling. The truth is, this will cage you for longer, and recovering in a way that is healthy is the first step of a better you.
