Last night, as I was falling asleep, my Black Jaguar, who sits on my Sacral Chakra, popped in and asked, “Why don`t you write about jaguars as spirit animals?” So, today, I will write about jaguar.
Jaguar is sacred to indigenous people in South and Central America. They call it “the animal that kills with a bite”`because the Jaguar kills its prey with a single bite. Jaguar makes a loud coughing noise. She is unable to roar.
In Munay-Ki, Jaguar is a totem that reflects integrity, steadfastness, truth, and the ability to blend in with the day or the night. Her skills include climbing, running steadily for hours at a slow trot, and keen night vision. The people with this totem or spirit animal, are generally agile, loners and leaders, and very good orators. Most Jaguar people are writers and thinkers, and do something to change the world.
Jaguar likes to live in caves, close to water, much like the hermits or isolated monks do. If she appears to you, she may be reminding you that in the Northern hemisphere, people should be moving into a hibernation or isolation stage in their life. It is a time of regeneration. This is a time to heal, to refresh the mind, and to contemplate one’s next steps. When we don’t take this time, people get out of balance.
