The goose is related to destiny, as is demonstrated in the Game of the Goose, which is no more than a playful representation of the symbol this animal embodies. In both the said game and the dream, the participant-dreamer has to overcome danger and fortunes of life to return to the mother's bosom. Some psychologists associate the goose with the figure of a tactless friend. To dream of a goose in the house predicts power, honors, and profits in business. To behead it assures satisfaction and happiness.
