So, Why the Cardinal?
Besides being the state bird of Ohio where Tonica grew up, there is a great deal of symbolism associated with cardinals. Tonica couldn’t help but notice how much of it aligned with the college planning process. See for yourself what you think!
Cardinals are positive, enlightening birds, so seeing one in a vision usually means something positive may happen to you. They often represent passion, endurance, and strength because they are persistent creatures who stick around all year, even during brutally cold winters.
This persistence (and red feathers) symbolize the inner fire that burns within people and reminds them to stay strong and be positive when they are going through difficult situations (like writing college essays)!
They also serve as a reminder to be clearer with your intentions- setting a clear and insightful goal for yourself will accomplish everything you are asking for and more.
Seeing a cardinal signifies that the timing is now perfect to start those new projects that you have been contemplating. Big or small, you can tackle them all!
When one road has been split into two, it becomes the crossroad we all come to at some pivotal point in our lives. It is the place where we must make an important, cardinal choice with the needed guidance to do so.
