A kite represents our need for, or recognition of, forthcoming spiritual freedom. In Chinese lore, the kite symbolized the wind. We need to be free of constraints and to be ?pulling our own strings?, while remaining grounded. The bird of prey also soars with the wind, and again represents freedom. While flying a kite, we are at the mercy of the wind unless we have a fair degree of expertise. In dreams it is recognizable that we have some expertise in our everyday lives and that that expertise needs recognition. To dream of flying a kite can remind us of the carefree days of childhood when we were without responsibility. Often the colour is important, as may be the material from which it is made. In more mundane terms, to be flying a kite may suggest ambition and career goals. Consult the entries for Colour and Wind for further clarification.
