Goose Symbolism . . . Goose spirit animal carries the magical totem powers of synchronicity. In flight goose has to synchronize itself with the communal mind of the entire flock to survive. The flock becomes one mind as it travels the long journeys on the thermal winds. The synchronization of the mind is one of Gooses greatest powers. It is from this power of synchronicity that they draw their strength and abilities of endurance. As goose synchronizes the body and motions in flight to other geese in the flock, it also synchronizes its mind. It therefore can partake in the experience of the other geese, and gain strength from it, creating a group mind for the benefit of all geese in the flock.
Goose symbolism points to what you treasure the most. It was the goose that laid the golden egg in the fairy tale story of Jack and the Beanstalk. As you know, Jack aspired to greater aspirations in his life, so to find his treasure, he had to climb the beanstalk, encounter and battle the giant to gain the golden egg he so desired. This symbolism gives the goose great courage to face his adversaries, and fears of the giant.

The magical powers of the goose spirit animal show us gooses ability to lead you to your hearts desire, or, your treasure.
If the goose is communicating with you, and showing up for you in synchronous ways it is because you are finding, or nearing your purpose in life, that which gives you bliss. The goose will gather other geese to him the more you listen to your heart, and the message will become stronger. The more geese in the flock, the higher and faster the flock can fly, and nearer to your treasure and hearts desire you become.
Keep your mind and your eye on your Golden Egg, for in time... when the time is right, and if you have been climbing the beanstalk as Jack did (taking the actions, and conquering the fears), it will surely come to be.
Goose has a fascinating history in legend and lore. Goose is a prehistoric bird dating back to 12 million years old, to the Miocene period.
Goose is tremendously territorial, and is quite vocal in letting anyone know it's boundaries. Cross the boundaries of the Goose and your are quite in danger of getting bit. A group of Geese will make quite a dramatic scene, garnering the attention of anyone around if you are so bold to enter it's space. The only way you can get near a Goose is to bring it an offering of food, and still it is ever so aggressive, and don't expect a thank you from the Goose, it has merely allowed you entry for a time to observe it closer.
Goose was considered to be quite sacred to the Roman Goddess Juno of Rome.
