To dream that you are in a cage, denotes that you are experiencing some inhibitions and powerlessness in some areas of your life. You may feel restricted, confined and restrained in a current relationship or business deal. Somebody may be keeping a short leash on you where you are lacking the freedom to act independently. To dream that you are putting a wild animal into a cage, signifies that you will succeed in overcoming your rivals and fears. It is also symbolic of you being able to control you animalistic rages and anger. To see a bird in a cage, suggests that you are feeling limited in your expression and a sudden lost of freedom. You may be experiencing frustrations and an inhibited spirituality. The dream may also imply that you are feeling like a "jail bird".beleaguer, beset, besiege, blockade, bottle up, bound, box in, box up, chamber, check, cloister, close in, compass, confine, constrain, contain, coop, coop in, coop up, cordon, cordon off, cork up, corral, crate, crib, detain, drive, drove, encage, encircle, enclose, enclosure, encompass, enshrine, fence in, goad, hedge in, hell, hem in, herd, hold, hold in custody, hold in restraint, house in, hutch, immure, impound, imprison, in, incarcerate, include, inhibit, jail, keep in, keep in custody, keep in detention, kennel, lash, leaguer, limbo, mew, mew up, pen, pen in, pen up, penfold, pinfold, place of confinement, pocket, pound, prick, punch cattle, purgatory, quarantine, rail in, restrain, restrict, ride herd on, round up, seal up, shackle, shepherd, shrine, shut in, shut up, spur, stable, surround, wall in, whip, wrangle, wrap, yard, yard up
