Mouse Symbolism. . . Mouse represents the personification of instinct. The mouse survives on its instincts. It has to follow them to keep out of harms way. The mouse does not have any natural defenses and has many enemies, so it has had to develop its instincts to the ultimate degree. It also has come to depend on a keen sense of observation as it navigates its world looking for food. The mouse also relies heavily on "timing" to know when, and when not to do something. These traits are the only tools the mouse has at its disposal, other than its small size, for escaping predators. It's small size is also good for reaching hard to fit places for finding food, and hiding places..

protection are all aspects of its powerful instincts. The mouse observes everything in its
surroundings. It is when mouse is observant of its world that it
begins to see things differently. The mouse watches everything and takes
it all into consideration before it makes a move to navigate its way in the world.

Mouse is quick to interpret everything in its world and decide what is of value, and what to pursue. The timing of the mouse is based on its observation. Mouse super-powers are to observe, and time its movements based on the value of its observations. For instance, if the mouse sees seeds in the open field, it first realizes that this makes it an open target for all predators, but the mouse has to eat. So, It watches the sky for hawks and the field for foxes and cats. When the time is right the mouse gets closer to the seeds, watching its surroundings with keen vision. Once it reaches the seeds, it takes what it wishes and runs back to safety watching its path intently. So, mouse meaning teaches us about "deliberate" timing, and being careful to time everything to your advantage.
