What is the meaning of 'Cage' in dreams?

cage

In your dreaming if you see a cageful of birds, you will be the happy possessor of immense wealth and many beautiful and charming children. To see only one bird, you will contract a desirable and wealthy marriage. No bird indicates a member of the family lost, either by elopement or death. To see wild animals caged, denotes that you will triumph over your enemies and misfortunes. If you are in the cage with them, it denotes harrowing scenes from accidents while traveling.

squirrel

To dream of these animals is a sign of good fortune; they denote abundant crops to a farmer, and success to any one: if a man dreams of being bitten by a squirrel, it foretells that he will lose something by robbery; if he catches the animal when it bites him, and puts it in a cage, the omen is different, for he will have a piece of good luck—though a robbery may be mixed up in it.

To see a man controlling a lion in its cage, or out denotes success in business and great mental power. You will be favorably regarded by women. To see young lions, denotes new enterprises, which will bring success if properly attended. For a young woman to dream of young lions, denotes new and fascinating lovers. For a woman to dream that she sees Daniel in the lions' den, signifies that by her intellectual qualifications and personal magnetism she will win fortune and lovers to her highest desire. To hear the roar of a lion, signifies unexpected advancement and preferment with women. To see a lion's head over you, showing his teeth by snarls, you are threatened with defeat in your upward rise to power. To see a lion's skin, denotes a rise to fortune and happiness. To ride one, denotes courage and persistency in surmounting difficulties. To dream you are defending your children from a lion with a pen-knife, foretells enemies will threaten to overpower you, and will well nigh succeed if you allow any artfulness to persuade you for a moment from duty and business obligations.
