If a mouse is taking your cheese in your dream, it’s possible someone is going behind your back in your waking life and you are already suspicious of their sneakiness and possible deception. Similarly, if someone offers you smelly or mouldy cheese then you may need to be careful about who you trust.
Cheese can also have nostalgic qualities, as it’s something you often eat as a child. Something like cheese on toast or macaroni cheese can take you back to when you were young. You might be exploring memories or emotions from your childhood during your waking hours.
If the cheese was soft, then you may fear that something in your life is no longer stable or solid like your relationship or your job. Alternately, soft cheese could mean that life is going smoothly right now and there have been very few bumps in the road lately.
Cheese is often associated with pleasure- you eat it in restaurants with your lover, you put it on top of home cooked meals, you serve it at Christmas time, or have it on top of a pizza for a family meal- all of which conjure up happy memories. You might be feeling in a very happy place in your life right now or you might crave more of the scenarios cheese is associated with.
Cheese can also be indicative of your hard work paying off- perhaps you have received a pay rise lately or completed a personal project and you feel like everything was worth it in the end.
This type of food is not something everyone can afford, especially ones of the artisan variety, so eating it in a dream could be a sign that you’re doing well as it’s synonymous with luxury and richness. It could be your subconscious telling you to see an opportunity so you can lead this sort of lifestyle.
One simple interpretation is that you need to smile more or that someone or something is getting too ‘cheesy’ for your liking.
