Cardinal Dream Meaning: From 10 Different Sources


The cardinal’s bright red rohe brings the fire of passion to liberate sexual expression. Since cardinals are monogamous, the appearance of the bird may summon you to take flight with the expression of sexual feelings within a committed relationship. It may also be a reminder that your sexuality is innocent, since the cardinal is the liberator of wounds and fears concerning sexual expression.
