Spirit Animal Jaguar

Spirit Animal Jaguar


I love the jaguar! It is my favorite among the large cats because of its beauty and, incredible strength and power; it is also fearless. I often call on the Spirit Animal of Jaguar when I am in a difficult place and need a large dose of courage. When things are not going according to plan, it’s all too easy to get sucked into F.E.A.R. (false evidence appearing real). Getting control of your thoughts (ego) and reactions is essential, because the ego operates on three default emotions located in the limbic brain: anxiety, anger, and fear. These same emotions can easily get triggered when an obstacle appears on the horizon. Have you ever noticed that the world is hooked into watching rerun episodes of Negative Reality T.V.? To nip that in the bud, kill the negative thoughts at once! Thoughts are things, becoming your manifested reality depending on how long you’ve been thinking about them.

The name jaguar originated from South America and means, “true, fierce beast and he who kills in one leap.” The jaguar is a symbol of power, and is revered as the protector of the rainforest. In shamanistic circles, the jaguar is seen as a familiar, or a form taken by a shaman. When a jaguar leaps into your life, something that you have been waiting for is about to make an appearance, but you have to pounce on it when the opportunity arrives. It’s important to stick to your principles and let them guide you; be impeccable with your word. Trust your intuition and don’t let the envy or jealousy of others or, your own doubts, hinder you at this time. Don’t give away your power. It’s imperative to keep quiet about your ideas or goals and use self-discipline to help you achieve success. If you have been feeling a lack of power in your life, use jaguar to help you reclaim it. Fear is the enemy; the antidote is to swing into faith! Become like the jaguar and take a leap towards your goal fearlessly.


The jaguar is the third-largest cat in the world and can weigh over 300 pounds. This powerful cat likes to stalk its prey; it is an opportunistic hunter, and it will eat any animal that it comes across, especially tapirs and capybaras. Their powerful jaws and teeth possess enough strength to puncture through turtle shells. Jaguars are also strong swimmers and are not afraid of water and even hunt fish. Jaguars can also mate up to 100 times in one day! They usually have two cubs a year but can have up to four cubs.

Affirmation: I trust myself, and allow the Universe to bring me what I want in life.
