#1. Jaguar instincts are within man kind

What makes the jaguar an interesting dream symbol becuase they are big loners. Jaguars tend to roam their land by themselves, and in our dreams this could be the unconscious part of you navigating in society. But why the jaguar? Well for one it points to your primal instincts that are not fully intergraded as yet.

These are innate impulses aimed at ensuring the individual’s survival and well-being. They include the instinct for self-preservation, such as the fight-or-flight response when faced with danger, the instinct to seek food and water for sustenance, and the instinctual drive to find shelter and protection.

But the jaguar may attack in your dream when you are too close to someone’s territorial nature. Unconscious instincts can also underlie aggressive and dominant behaviors. These instincts can manifest in territoriality, competition for resources, and the assertion of power or dominance within social hierarchies. Basically, you are being attacked only because you have challenged or threated this person in your life.

Basically, if you are someone who was agreeable and never provokes anyone then you could in fact be attacked by the jaguar in your dream.

The jaguar lets you know that you will not only stand out from others but have the teeth to bite back when necessary.

#3. Jaguar dreams: Spiritual power

The spiritual meaning of a jaguar in your dreams awakens your intuition, stealth, courage and assertiveness. But there is something much more important about the jaguar that many people over look in dreams — they are known as guardians that help guide you along your spiritual journey in life. This is not some new age talk, but the jaguar is known by the shaman as a guardian in the spirit realm. It was often associated with the divine and considered a sacred animal. Shamans and spiritual leaders believed that jaguars had the ability to travel between the physical and spiritual realms, acting as spirit guides or protectors. The jaguar has been looking for you to find it in the dense forest of your unconscious mind — seeing the jaguar you have found a part of yourself that was once wild and unknown. The spiritual meaning of the jaguar encourages you to understand and keep developing this energy within you only to become a stronger more determined person. You need the energy of the jaguar in your life to protect you against this crazy world we live in; by trusting your intuition and controlling your emotions you will be on top of the world.

What is the meaning of a black jaguar

In dreams the color black only appears to let you know this powerful energy is unconscious to you. What analytical psychologist Carl Jung called the human shadow might be represented as the black jaguar in your dreams. The black jaguar represents the shadow self—the hidden, unconscious aspects of our personality. Dreaming of a jaguar could suggest that you need to explore and confront your own shadow, acknowledging and integrating those aspects of yourself that you may have repressed or denied. Alternatively, being attacked by the black jaguar in your dream means you are not aware of your repressed ideas, weaknesses, desires, instincts, and shortcomings.

But not all dreams about the black jaguar are bad, but are actually good if you had a good relationship with it. The black jaguar in your dream might also show up to represent a transformation or rebirth in your life. Once you make this powerful element conscious in your life than you will adopt the jaguars energy. But in order to do so you need to find balance within such as light and dark, yin and yang, or masculine and feminine energies.

Basically, sometime very big is developing within you that is metaphorically coded within the baby jaguar symbolism.

We understand that this energy is feminine meaning you will awaken a part of the unconscious side of your personality that was never recognized. With great power comes great responsibility. Are you ready to control this wild animal within you, or will you let it run your life? The spiritual meaning of a baby jaguar in your dream means you are undergoing a personal rebirth and new found development of your unconsciousness. Because the baby jaguar lives in the wild jungle it means this energy is unfamiliar to you — incorporating this power you will connect with your uncontrolled emotions.

The biblical meaning of jaguars in dream is a positive symbol suggesting you have now tapped into the jaguar within you; new found strengths, assertiveness, and the ability to overcoming challenges.
