Spiritual Meaning:
Wings generally symbolize the protecting, all-pervading power of God. An angel’s wings would depict the power to transcend our difficulties, as also would the wings of a bird of prey.

Psychological / Emotional Perspective:
Wings can be protective, and this symbolism often appears in dreams. Folded wings can suggest sorrow, whereas open wings would seem to signify unconditional love.

Everyday Material Aspects:
Because wings make us think of flight, to dream of, for instance, birds’ wings would suggest attention is being drawn to our need for freedom. A broken wing indicates that a previous trauma is preventing us from ‘taking off’and progressing in our lives.
