Sparrows express inconsistency and futility, either in ourselves or those around us. In the latter case, dream images alert you of someone close trying to profit at your expense. This humble and friendly bird, perhaps because of the damage it causes to the fields, holds a negative connotation in the dream. If it flies, it announces unpleasant events and empty promises; if it is in a cage a loving conquest will prove to be a huge mistake. To see many of them together is a sign of ruin; to hear them chirping is sign of nasty gossiping.
