Jaguar Power Animal Symbol Of Solitary Path Reclaiming Power Shape Shifting Psychic Vision

By Ina Woolcott

The Jaguar’s medicine includes seeing the roads within chaos and understanding the patterns of chaos, moving without fear in the darkness, moving in unknown places, shape shifting, psychic vision, facilitating soul work, empowering oneself, reclaiming power.

The Black Jaguar’s medicine includes the same as jaguar but in addition keeper of the circular time continuum, gatekeeper to the unknowable.

The South American name for jaguar, ‘jaguara’ is translated as ‘carnivore that overcomes prey with a single bound.’ there is an Indian legend that says the jaguar came by its beautiful spotted coat by dabbing mud on its body with its paws. These spots easily hold the jaguar apart from other big cats. What also holds them apart from other big cats is the fact that they are unrivalled. There are no other predators that can compete with this powerful cat. Those with this power animal generally make brilliant leaders and diplomats.

According to Mayan beliefs, the journey of the sun across the sky and the darkness of night represented the infinite journey of human consciousness and its transformations. The midday sun’s position was compared to the Eagle, flying high in the sky, to then plunge below the horizon, just as we plunge into the dark to face our spiritual challenges and to be transformed. The hidden sun was said to be Jaguar, whose spotted skin represents the stars glittering/shining in the night sky. Hence it was called the “Jaguar Sun.” Jaguar is the earth father, holding the authority over the sacred power of and in the earth, and the animals who live upon it. The force that lives within the mountains, giving them their volcanic and transformative power, is the same underworld source of energy and power contained within the Jaguar Sun. The Mayan word for Jaguar is IX and it is pronounced ‘eesh’.

Similarly to the tiger, this solitary hunter stalks silently and patiently, to then strike with lightning speed. This symbolises the importance of knowing when it’s best to take the solitary path in stalking one’s own dreams. For the native people of the rainforests, everything contains the essence of the Jaguar.

Jaguar, Leopards and Panthers are very ancient and powerful power animals/totems. They embody aggressiveness and power, but without the influence of solar energy. Black Panther’s power is lunar (moon). People with a Jaguar, Panther or Leopard medicine have the ability to multi-task. They tend to be loners and are very comfortable with themselves. Often they are drawn to other solitary people.

If this is your power animal, you must learn to pace your work – in all aspects of your life – and not push too hard. Women who have Jaguar, Panther or Leopard totems often bring their children up alone, whether it be through divorce or just circumstances in their lives.

Either sex holding this power animal have the potential to develop clairaudience, the ability to hear communications from other forms of life or dimensions and should trust their thoughts and inner visions as they are based in reality.

Jaguars have huge paws and a broad head with mighty strong jaws. They often kill their victim by piercing the skull with one rapid bite. The jaguar growls, snarls and makes deep grunts – it does not roar like a lion. People with this power animal generally possess a good command of language, although their words can have a tendency to cut, tear and shred others apart. Learning correct communication skills is of foremost importance for these people.

The jaguar’s powerful body is capable of taking them hundreds of miles in the search for food. They are agile climbers. They teach us how to fulfil goals/dreams through pliability and steadfastness.

Jaguars are at home in the dark with their excellent night vision. They move fearlessly, whether night or day, teaching us how to trust our personal instincts. Latent psychic sight may be stirred in those with this power

The jaguars preferred habitat is usually swamp and wooded regions, although they are also able to live in scrublands and deserts. Jaguars live in caves and canyons close to fresh water. In mythology caves are linked with retreat and isolation, a place to go to aid soul work. Water is linked with the emotional body of humans. When the jaguar bounds into your reality it is
asking you to go within, to release your fears, to heal your emotions and to awaken your inner sight. When you come out of retreat the jaguar will be there awaiting you. If you choose to follow his lead, he will guide you into the underworld where the secrets of life and creation are to be found.

  1. Alot of truth in your wirds,really hit home!being that jaguars don’t growl would that side with people who aren’t as loud as others?

    1. It’s about the blending of dualities and integration.The realization that there are not sides but layers and aspects to the All One of all that is, I. E the love / truth of what You are.
      The Jaguar aids You in seeing the truth (nothing to seek as one can not seek for what one already is)- and the wolf allows You to take that knowledge, live it in life’s experience and then take it back to share with others in Your pack …
      Can I say also, and not just bc I work heavily with this Medicine, I have come to find that for Black Jaguar people, it is so very very very important to stay humble in what We realize We know as all of this power can very easily become drunken when it is channeled through Our egos(fear) instead of Our hearts (love)… The Power of what You are working with here must always connect thru heart focus rather than fear focus and never ask of any other what You Yourself would be afraid of or unwilling to do… Thank You. Bless. Siembra fuego?

  2. Yes I had Reruns dreaming I was running as Looking at My Paws,,, Black Pawss ,Smooth running , just beautiful. Its Me all The above

  3. My ex husband told me of a dream where I was a black jaguar. I was standing on his chest with my teeth bared and one paw upraised claws extended. All I said to him was, “I’ll let you live”. He was afraid of me from that point on, I however, was not aware of this. I wish I would have understood back then. He was a monster.

    1. Hah… had something similar, an ex told me he’d seen me as a giant spider about to drain him.. could have should have, he was also a demonic monster… Interesting what the subconscious is aware of!

  4. I was given the gift of two black Jaguars in a dream. They stood side by side. I glided my hand through their fur and felt their powerful muscles beneath, looking into their golden eyes I was somehow transformed as I woke. And I’m unable to stop reflecting on them! It’s been months now and the thought of them is with me every day! I wonder why they haunt me?

    1. Not a haunting. It is a call to live Your Truth. There are aspects in Your world where You have denied the choice in love- start choosing love. When You live from Your heart and take action from its guidance then You are defining the word ‘courage'(which literally means ‘to take action from the heart
      … Be courageous in every step. You deserve and the world needs this from You. Bless. Sow fire?

    2. They are not haunting you. Jaguar energy saturates you at a certain point. I could feel it in every part of my body and where ever I went. Sometimes if I get over saturated I’ll push it out and clear my energy. The Mayan believed that Jaguar energy could enable one to move fluidly fronthe the deep unconscious and hidden realms to the heights of heaven, because the Jaguar sleeps in caves and cenotes and hunts and sleeps in the jungle tree top.

  5. Jaguar came to me yesterday, during the soul retrieval ceremony…when we tame the big cat within, we overcome our own fears, this is the message of the Bo Tree, which the Great Illuminator blessed with perpetual life, strangely came up via Tree Spirit painting, just a few hours before the ceremony…(“Snow Leopard”)

  6. I dreamt i was driving home at night. My headlights lit on a female cougar by the road, she had two cubs (fairly large) I slowed then she had 3-4 tucked under her all looking at me. then I stopped to honor and marvel them in my rear view mirror (as somehow light still shone on them) a black panther came out to protect them all. I bowed my head to him and he then ran ahead of me his black coat turning into a spotted coat the patterns were beautiful then he became a man/lepoard the darker spots across his shoulder as he was walking upright and he went into my house and climbed into my bed like he was going to sleep….there was more this was just the animal part….any insights??? Please Thank You : )

  7. Yesterday in my meditation they said my little girls power animal is Jaguar and it will heal her emotions and protect her. They also said it means light of god and he will give her a light of protection all the time. Here I am reading your words an it is very similar what I heard. Thank you

  8. Katherine Berezniy, your dream is really interesting. I don’t know what it means (you will know best), but it definitely makes me thing of Black Panther guardian energy coming to you and your family or friends, and that somehow the medicine of shapeshifting is important for you to think about at the moment.

  9. I have Owl (Tawny FrogMouth) and Jaguar (black I think) spirit animals. What does this mean?
    Thanks for your knowledge 🙂

  10. My youngest son told me of a dream he just had. It was he n I in a car,turned a corner,a black jaguar lay there calmly and stared at us both. I stayed calm and no fear as my son was frightened and couldn’t understand how I could stay so calm! Anyone out there,can you interpret his dream?

    1. Black animals in general often represent that which is hidden or subconscious, or things that we fear because we do not understand them. The black jaguar could have been calling out to your son as a spirit guide, perhaps a beginning of a spiritual journey, or other message. The fact that you were not afraid could be that your son trusts you to guide him in these matters. You could always try asking your son what he thinks it meant as well, we are often the best interpreters of our own dreams because that’s who the message is ultimately for.

  11. I loves what TIA is saying…lindo and really interesting. I ve got a lot of animals…..I love the plants maybe why? But the stronger ones which are often with me are a white eagle, a white owl, an anaconda, white lion, a crocodile…..and others….and I saw a beautiful baby black jaguar, my master offered me it. He s growing up in my breast.
    I was thinking as well that sometimes some plants spirits are calling me to diet its….what are you thinking..TIA?
    Valeu…to share
