A place of restriction and oppression. Dreams • In interpreting a cage in an internal dream, I would not see a positive connotation to it unless your enemies were in that cage! In dreaming that you are in a cage or being held captive, it would represent your lack of freedom.
• This would indicate that you are bound either by your circumstance, by your past or by some form of oppression.
The enemy keeps you in bondage while the Lord gives freedom.
• The mind can often be a cage in that it restricts you. Your analytical mind could be stopping your progress.
A cage also represents fear, which could indicate being bound by a fear of the past that has been exposed again in your life.
• In personal experience I have seen people in cages and the Lord has told me that they have put themselves in the cage. One such case was a woman who had a fear of opening herself up to the Lord. I saw her in a cage and the Lord being able to only pass small objects through it to her.
The interpretation was that because she had closed off her heart to the Lord out of fear, He could only give her small blessings because of her restriction.
• Visions • I could not find a positive connotation for a cage in Scripture either.
A cage in an external dream or vision speaks of the deceit and devices of the enemy.

YVhat is in the cage - whether person or animal or bird - almost certainly represents yourself or some part of yourself.
(1) The cage may symbolize the (felt) restrictions of your present life situation. But the restrictions may be self-imposed, albeit by means of unconscious processes - for example, internal prohibitions arising out of irrational guilt-feelings.
(2) Some part of you may be crying out for liberation. (For repression and suppression) Wild and dangerous animals are kept in cages.
It is likely, therefore, that what is caged in your dream is a part of you that frightens or disgusts you by its animality. Refusal to accept that you belong to the animal kingdom may result in your living in your head entirely, with the body - primitive energies and drives - locked out of consciousness. But a disembodied head, cut off from Nature’s vital energy and Nature’s wisdom, can only lead to trouble. Particularly in the West, where for two centuries even religion has rejected Nature (the feminine side of God), we desperately need to get closer to Nature, not remove ourselves even further from it.
(3) On the other hand, a bird in a cage may represent frustrated spiritual aspirations. Perhaps you are spending too much time and energy in work that brings you only money. Any contradiction between
(2) and (3) is only apparent. You can’t climb - even to spiritual heights - without your body, without the primal energy and wisdom of your unconscious. To attain the ‘higher’, first go ‘deeper’. The liberation - uncaging - of our deeper psychic contents so that they become pan of our conscious equipment will enable us to transcend the limitations of our past and present.

If you see yourself caged, it is a sign that the unconscious wants to express its complaints, since you are subjected to heavy repression by the conscious. You have become a very strict judge of yourself and limit your acts and thoughts too much, which prevents you from expressing yourself freely.

If you are put in a cage with wild animals, the dream is warning you that you are in danger of an accident.... The Big Dictionary of Dreams

Are your inhibitions stopping you expressing your personality? Is your job humdrum? Is your partner possessive?

Green means go. Green is the color of the heart center, which can be confusing due to the representation of the heart as red, made especially prominent in Western culture with Valentine’s Day. However, green is the central color of the spectrum, and the heart is considered the center of both our physical and emotional bodies. This connects the color green to love, healing, and all matters of the heart. It may be easier to understand the meaning of this color if you consider the earth and Mother Nature’s love affair with the color green.

When the heart is soured by hurt, green can turn into the menace of envy.... Complete Dictionary of Dreams
Green is the color of nature. It is also the color of other forms of growth and flourishing development.
If green appears in your dream, are you experiencing new growth? On the positive side, green is linked to feelings of calm and hope, but on the negative side it is associated with jealousy. Green is the color displayed by growing and healthy vegetation and foliage, and it quite clearly indicates natural growth or the mental relaxation gained from being close to nature. So if you were surrounded by lush green vegetation in your dream, could your unconscious have been urging you to pay more attention to the environment around you, or to become more environmentally friendly?
Consider, too, the other associations that are often made with this color; could your unconscious be telling you that your approach is naïve, immature or green? Could you do with an injection of freshness and hope in your life? Or have you become a victim of the green-eyed monster: jealousy?
If darker shades of green appear in relation to a certain person, is it because you are jealous or envious of them or something of theirs? Dark green also tends to indicate cheating, deceit and selfishness. Muddier shades of dark green sometimes point to envy and greed, as well as a stubborn or self- opinionated attitude. Alternatively, have you been given the green light to go ahead with some business or family venture? A green field could indicate inner feelings of calm. Green fruits may suggest that a current project is not quite ripe and that patience is needed until the time is right to begin. Green vegetables could also be associated with the idea of personal health or growth. Green eyes have traditionally been linked to feelings of jealousy. Were the eyes your own or someone else’s? A green path may be linked to a physical or emotional journey.
