Jaguars are a symbol of seeing the roads within chaos, understanding the patterns of chaos, moving without fear in the other-word realms, facilitating soul work, empowering oneself, moving in unknown places, shape-shifter, psychic sight, releasing fear. Jaguar is a Native American word for “he who kills with one blow”. The Jaguar is seen as a God in Peru, Mexico and Guatemala and the Mayans, Incas and Aztecs all worshipped the Jaguar in some form. The jaguar God is seen as only second to the snake God. In Mayan tradition the jaguar is seen as the ruler of the underworld, and therefore is also associated with the night and darkness. Jaguars represent power, ferocity and valour. Jaguar is the symbol to facing ones fears or ones enemies. As they have the ability to see in the night, it gives us the insight into seeing into the darkest part of people’s hearts.
