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 animal.
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.

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?
I have the black jaguar. A cool and powerful animal spirit.
It has protected me many times . I just need to trust my intuition . I just wish I could finally fully release my pain so that I don’t cause pain to others with my words …
Can you give the prayer for this spirit?
you dont have an spirit, the spirit of the jaguar chose you to be together for a reason. it is a gift for you, not something to keep. it will be until you dont need it anymore and another spirit will come to guide you. Ahoo!
I have a white jaguar and black wolf. What does that mean?
I do too, my friends say its a rare thing or something like it.
What about black jaguar and white wolf ?
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?
Brilliant. Thank you. Peace and love.
I needed this right now so so much …..
I too exsperienced the jaguar with grandfather …medicino.
Very strong . Profound . I was the jaguar ..caught me by suprise.
It was a heavey healing work day time. Aho! Courage strength, discernment. Lobe
Merged physically in my dream the night before with a female jaguar and her baby . In 25 years of practice I hade never “merged” so organically with an animal spirit. Still puzzled by the experience. Thank you for the wise explanations.
Thank you for that energy
Yes I had Reruns dreaming I was running as Looking at My Paws,,, Black Pawss ,Smooth running , just beautiful. Its Me all The above
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.
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!
Wow . I got chills after I read your story .
How very blessed you are that he did have that dream .
Everything is always happening for your highest good .
I too look back onmy life to all the miracles that happened for me . I was not aware of them at the time , either . My very favorite saying now is ” Everything happens in perfect time ” ????✌?????
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?
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?
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.
I am a Warrior. My warrior name is Jaguar Priest. I am shaman. My guide is The Jaguar. I see you.
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”)
What are you talking bout
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 : )
My gut response: The shapeshifter, who presented as male and went to sleep in YOUR bed seems to represent your own ability to shapeshift with the magnificent Jaguar. However, I would guess, that at least at the time of your post, you were allowing this ability to remain dormant, perhaps unaware that you are capable of such an experience. I would look at this as an opportunity, a personalized invitation to welcome this power animal, even to shapeshift with it.
If you haven’t already, I do hope you open yourself up to this experience. It is life altering in the most beautiful ways.
If you believe you are incapable, simply release that “belief” and embrace instead the “KNOWING” that you are not only capable, but being invited to do so. (Never assume what you are not capable of. 🙂
My apologies. I forgot something else that stood out as significant to me.
Male energy (patriarchal energy) is believed to be grounded in the physical, as opposed to the spiritual. The male energy goes to your bed to sleep, possibly indicating that you are allowing this ability to sleep currently, or that this gift/ability is asleep within you as you remain balanced more in the masculine. Perhaps this gender specific detail is indicating that your being grounded in the physical allows this ability to remain asleep.
Obviously then, the message might be that to awaken this “sleeping” ability of having such an intimate connection with this powerful animal that you actually are invited to walk as the jaguar through shapeshifting, you will need to find a balance of energy that is more grounded in the feminine (which is believed to include spirituality, which includes your connection to Nature, and creativity).
Who knows if this will get to you being that your initial post was so long ago, or if it will all be old news to you, but I did enjoy the trip down memory lane, remembering my own experiences with this magnificent being. Thank you for that gift.
And thank you, Ms. Woolcott, for this wonderful community you have created and facilitate. I wish you great success!
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
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.
*’think’, not ‘thing’ ….
I have Owl (Tawny FrogMouth) and Jaguar (black I think) spirit animals. What does this mean?
Thanks for your knowledge 🙂
I am jaguar and owl, what does that mean?
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?
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.
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?
I was recently given a medicine drum with the skin of a Guatemalan Black Jaguar (naturally deseaced). Very powerful medicine, and many wild and healing sounds come from my mouth when I sound heal with this drum.

Dreamt 2wks back: walking up dirt rd and come across big pack of various wild cats. Feel fear before turning round and leading mixed pride…at which point a big sleek Jaguar flanks me and climbs a tree at pace, like its looking out for danger ahead. Damn. Wild animals are my life dream theme and big cats in particular but first time the Jaguar has emerged.
I had a dream about a bluish purple Jaguar . It pounced on a car that I was in looked right at me and then we started floating into the sky it was nighttime I had the feeling it was pulling me into the sky. If anyone has insight please feel free to share thank you
I’ve never had a power animal in dreams, until last night. A beautiful jaguar. I was scared of her at first but she kept wanting to come to me. At one point in the dream, I was lost and being chased by other beings. When me and my jaguar found each other we clung tightly. We were both crying very hard feeling great relief and happiness to be together. A crowd of people noticed our reunion and circles around us in support. Waking up from that dream made me want to go back to sleep to be with my jaguar.
Aww that’s Awesome I wanna go to your dream too !!😺
For the past few days I have been seeing jaguars everywhere! (Not the real life physical kind of course lol) in just the space of a few hours I saw FOUR jaguar cars at separate locations and times, not common at all where I live, I heard the word Jaguar brought up in two very separate conversations between complete strangers, on the front of a magazine, a number plate, an advertisement on tv and even just now on snapchat!
It has to mean something, I just know it! But I don’t know what!
I have visuals of the black jaguar in my waking life.relevant. although my physical receive through soul destroyed invasion into family floorboards with spirit connectedness in Sydney Australia is in dyer straights seeking some guidance Holly
What does it mean if you are a jaguar and a rhino?
I am not sure if this means anything but on my first birthday I received a black jaguar stuffed animal (although I did think it was a dog for a while), I was greatly attached to it and still am to this day. I feel safe with it’s presence and I’ve loved this animal since I first became aware of it’s existence. I feel a great connection to this animal but I feel that with many animals so I’m not sure if it really is my spirit animal.
Nvm, I regret making this comment…
It could be but it’s said that the Jaguar will come to those who really really need his help so don’t think you don’t have a connection but on the contrary u do if you feel this feelings Sorry for late respond ✌🏽

Chi Miigwetch for your teachings sister. I have learned so much from you and am now sharing the lessons with others. I have quoted you in the article I published today, Jaguar Medicine – The Heart of Truth at the Bottom of the Swamp. Very grateful for all your hard work and great wisdom. #BirdClanMessenger
I feel that for jaguar people it is very difficult to deal with fake people and places. That’s why I think they love their solitude. And I think others are often intimidated by us, especially in the work place. Jaguar people do have a hard time mincing their words because they surely do not walk on egg shells. They walk, see, and hear the world with great perceptiveness and purpose. Ultimately, I think they teach us to learn the power of silence, stealth, and patience to accomplish our goals with great creativity and dignity.
Hello, the Jaguars found me, I knew nothing of them…it wasn’t till I started to see them in my photos. You can SEE THEM. I first noticed the eyes, and spots, yamapuma too…he is darker ( of course), I also photograp the Cubs, but stranger, the human jag,s, they morph, and I have taken pictures of myself where a Jaguar image is over my face, with strange images on my arms, forehead. I know this sounds insane, but I give my word that I photograph them constantly…I wish someone had answers, but I know I must learn on my own…I have ancestors from Mexico, ..i have wondered, if my ancestors hold the key?
