Spirit of The Jaguar

The jaguar Otorongo is the archetypal animal of the West direction on the medicine wheel. It represents renewal and sudden transformation.  It is the king of the jungle with no natural predators and moves with precision, certainty, and impeccability.  The jaguar is associated with the cycle of life and death.  Energetically, it devours what no longer serves us and pounces without hesitation into what we are becoming.  There is nothing incremental or gradual about jaguar energy.  It sees opportunity in sickness, in that healing is not a chance to get back to normal, but rather to leap beyond our previous circumstances.
