Jaguar is a smart, skillful hunter that uses stealth and cunning for success. She may visit to remind you are a stable, proud person.

Do you have little relief from dealing with tough issues every day? If you said yes, then seriously consider why. It could be you are on the wrong path and need to make changes to get back on track.

A dream of jaguar feasting on its prey can indicate you will do whatever it takes to get what you want. You will stop at nothing. Even spread nasty rumors and assassinate people’s characters if you think they get in your way.
A dream of you driving a Jaguar car is symbolic of wealth, prosperity, and abundance. This can bring mixed messages.

Once I saw the jaguar coming that way I decided that go I to another room which had a door but it was broken (chunks missing from the bottom and top) the jaguar got closer to the door so I shut it. My heart was racing I was so scared but remained silent. The jaguar was able to get through the hole on the bottom of the door and very very very slowly started walking to me. For some reason I knew to remain eye contact or it would attach. I tried to scream for the girl to come get it but it was like she couldn’t hear me it maybe I was so afraid I wasn’t saying it loud enough. Well I’m standing there frozen watching this jaguar in slow motion come towards me heart racing a million miles an hours hoping this girl hears me and comes to get it. But she doesn’t. I look at the jaguars body and notice it is starving. I could see it’s ribs it was so skinny. It got so close to be i somehow put my hands on it’s mouth like try to keep it shut. It didn’t move bite make a noise or budge. We just sat there like that for about a minute which seemed like 5 minutes. I woke up heart racing and sweating.
