Now that you’re 18, this bird symbolizes you as a lady whose wings have been perfected by time now ready to fly and explore the heights as well as the lows that you will encounter in your travel through life’s challenges.
There’s a saying “No Man is an Island” so this bird symbolizes people who will accompany you as you trudge an unfamiliar sky. People who will lift you up when you feel like your wings are being hindered by the whirling winds or when your life begins to center on the grounds of existence alone.
“There’s no place like home.” You may reach the highest part of the sky, but there will come a time that you need to stop and look back at a deluge of memories that you could not fly away from. So this cage symbolizes your home – place where everything had begun. For the greatest mistake one can do is to forget his past.
