Dream meaning of wings

Wings are related to freedom and to the desire that a person may have to free themselves from a certain situation, and also indicate a strong imaginative motivation.

Discover here some situations in which wings can appear in dreams and learn the meaning of each context.

To dream that you have wings

Generally, when you dream that you have wings, it means that there will be an improvement in your situation. They symbolize this state of freedom and happiness, showing that soon something will change in your life, and for the better, promoting moments of happiness and personal fulfillment.

If you are expecting a promotion at work, it may be that it is about to arrive, and this dream comes to announce it. Be careful not to rush into things and let the factors unfold naturally.

To dream of wings beating soothingly

A sign that good news is coming. When you dream of wings beating gently, you are receiving a very good message, showing that soon good news will arrive and make you very happy.

To dream of violently beating wings

This dream is a warning that you should control your anxiety and insecurity. There are times in life when things are not right, and we can’t control our feelings, causing a lot of anxiety and insecurity. You have to understand that you cannot control the world around you, and that most of the time something will not happen the way you want it to, so there is no point in suffering in advance.

Try to relax and breathe deeply. Quieting the mind in these moments is a good practice, and it is recommended to do some physical activity, such as yoga, meditation, among others, that will help you calm down.

To dream of raptor wings

To dream of birds of prey wings, such as the eagle, the hawk or the vulture, is a warning sign. These birds are carnivorous and pose a danger to the animals they hunt, symbolizing that you should prepare yourself for serious dangers.

Be careful not to trust the wrong people and be on the alert for dangers that may appear. Preparing yourself for the arrival of something bad can be a good strategy, to be stronger, when this danger arrives.

To Dream of Angel’s Wings

Angel wings represent a more spiritual side, and to dream of them may indicate that you are in need of getting in touch with this side of yourself. Perhaps there is something going on in your life that you don’t understand and you have been searching for meaning. Leave the rational side aside and look to spirituality for answers, since some problems cannot be solved when you only think rationally.

There are many ways to connect spiritually, it’s up to you to decide which is the best. The important thing is that you feel good and can reach the answers you so much desire.

To dream that you are flying

If in your dream you are flying, it is your subconscious showing your desire to reach some goal. Probably this goal is not yet within your reach, so you need to start looking for ways to achieve it.

There is no use in waiting for something good to happen, so take control of your life in order to achieve your goals. Review your actions and start focusing on what you want.


Generally, to dream of wings can mean that you long for a freedom that you have not been able to achieve. Whether it is because of your job, children, or other things that may take up time that was meant to be yours alone. To dream of animals that fly fast and are lethal, such as birds of prey, may symbolize how much you long for and are seeking to be a truly free person.

    Wings symbolize, since immemorial times, spirituality, imagination, and freedom. Therefore, already in ancient Greece, they appeared in some fabulous animals such as Pegasus or the snakes of Ceres. 

    On the contrary, according to Christian symbolism, wings are the sun that always illuminates the intelligence of the just. In oneiric terms, wings predict success, achieving goals, and overcoming difficulties. Therefore, such images should encourage the person to jump into action (it is time to take flight). 

    Finally, wings are also a symbol that appears before great travels. Since they also represent the imagination and knowledge, dreaming of wings predicts positive results on upcoming tests or examinations you face.

     Here again the meaning depends greatly on the action and what kind of wings they were, so only the most common form of the dream can be given.
    To dream you have wings yourself suggests that your destiny lies ever upward; a broken wing on a bird (or an airplane) suggests that your goal may be beyond your reach and you should consider changing your aim; however, if a bird was involved, the variety should be correlated for an accurate interpretation.
    To hear the soft rustle of wings indicates happy news from friends, but the sound of strongly flapping wings is a warning against gambling of any kind.

    Flying implies an ability to defy gravity, which is one of the most powerful symbols in the human experience. Wings are the agents of flight, and in this way they are evidence of your own power to elevate your experience up from any depths. Consider what the wings in your dream are attached to. Once you have a satisfying interpretation of that symbol, add the element of rising to higher consciousness through the presence of wings.
