Goose – there are two groups of symbolic meanings of a goose: the first is associated with the wild goose, the second with the domestic goose.
The wild goose symbolizes vigilance, love, happiness in marriage, loyalty. It is a solar symbol, especially in Egypt. A sign of freedom, enlightenment and, thanks to seasonal flights, a symbol of autumn and spring.
In ancient Egypt, the goose was considered a bird laying an egg from which the sun appeared. He was also called the messenger of the gods. Goose became the emblem of the pharaohs, who, in the view of the ancient Egyptians, were the embodiment of the sun. When the Pharaoh ascended to the throne, the priests released four geese as heralds to all four directions of the world. The geese sacrificed at the winter solstice symbolized the returning sun.
The sunny positive symbolism of the wild goose largely coincides with the symbolism of the swan; in essence, they are interchangeable, especially in the Celtic tradition
