More massive than the leopard, it is smaller than the lion and the tiger, but even more ferocious than the latter. A mysterious and solitary animal, it is very difficult to see it and very little is known about its habits.
The leopard, s inhabit a territory that can extend up to 300 miles, they only meet during the heat, but they are so lonely that they irritate each other even during sex. Their power is both strong and versatile.
Leopard – Spirit Animal
The leopard is a very old and powerful power animal and symbolizes like most big cats courage and danger. Like tiger and lion, it also embodies aggressiveness and power, but without the solar aspect. In the case of the Black Panther, the lunar aspect is particularly clear.
Panthers or leopards occur in Africa, Asia Minor, China and India. The associated jaguar family occurs (rarely) in the southwestern United States, throughout Mexico, Central America, and parts of South America.
Leopards are generally smaller but more dangerous than lions or tigers. They have more than five hundred muscles that they can move at will. And this can also be applied to the people who have the leopard as a power animal. It expresses the ability to perform many different tasks according to one’s own will or discretion. It’s all about what “muscles” are chosen and used, be they physical, mental, psychic or spiritual.
By and large, leopards are loners; Now and then, they do get close to each other, but most of all they feel alone within their own marked territory. Even leopard people are often loners.
Leopards enchantingly combine beauty and utility. They have a wonderful grace, they can move effortlessly or they can stand completely still. They are silent when they lurk, sneak or pursue their prey. People with the leopard as a force animal reach their goals easiest if they are silent about it. If you betray too much, it may work against you.
Leopards are excellent runners, but not at long distances. Therefore, with the leopard as a power animal, people need to learn to do their work step by step to stay healthy. They need time to rest and play. You should not work too hard on a task. If you do it anyway, it can easily lead to imbalances – in difficult times and in any environment – people with the leopard react first as a power animal, and especially in the working world, they feel particularly hard appointments and other stress.
After mating, the panthers only stay together for a short time. The female picks up the boys and does not like anyone else interfering with them. This is similar for women who use the leopard as a power animal. They do not like it when others, even their partners, influence the education of children.
Like leopard females, the leopard as a force animal often attracts boys on their own, whether that is due to a divorce or simply because they want to dominate in this area of partnership. In both cats, both eyes work for themselves, and thus they gain a greater depth of vision, can enlarge images and easily estimate distances. People attuning to the leopard develop greater depth of vision, both in their everyday lives as well as in certain events and in the judgment of other people. And that’s more than a supersensory seeing, it’s a kind of inner knowledge.
The capacity of clairaudience also increases, messages from other dimensions and from other forms of life become audible. The leopard has a very sharp ear and can move its ears so that it can locate the direction of the sounds.
The leopard knows how to hunt on the prairie like in the forest and the marshes; prefers the proximity of the water, with which, unlike the majority of the felines, it is at ease; he knows how to fish with his paws in the manner of the Bears; he is an excellent swimmer and also hunts small alligators or caimans.
In fact, this animal does not pursue its prey, it waits for it in ambush and at the most opportune moment it leaps at her biting her head at the two temporal lobes. When the leopard touches the ground, the prey is already dead with its skull broken. If he fails, however, he will not try again a second time.
On the other hand, leopard, s have been seen up to an altitude of 3800 meters. It is no coincidence that the Indians narrate that they can fly over the mountain peaks and that there are aquatic leopard, s that inhabit the depths of the rivers. In Central and South America it is the Lord of the Animals as well as the main ally of many shamans.
Leopard – Totem
Not a simple ally, the leopard is indeed the shaman among the animals. Shaman and leopard not only simply equivalent, but both are at the same time the other. Shamans wander in the mountains and spy or kill their enemies in the form of leopard, s and leopard, s take over the soul of men by turning them into shamans. Many shamans finally become leopard, s at death.
Animal Shaman and Traveler among the Worlds, it is thanks to his travel in this and other realities that he acquired his many powers. And he has archaic wisdom (perhaps out of fashion today, not by chance he risks extinction) to keep his knowledge secret.
However, it seems that its origin is chthonic, from the underworld towards which it often accompanies the souls of the dead, in the role of psych pomp (guide of souls).
He is also the lord of the mountains, of the echo and of the drum. His roar is the voice of the Drum and the Thunder.
We must be respectful of the Leopard, only shamans can master their spirit, in ordinary men it can give rise to phenomena of grave possession: in South America they are known as “werewolf leopard, s”, analogous to European werewolves.
Leopard – Symbolism
The Leopard, s are often lunar animals, because they are shy and mostly nocturnal. But above all the leopard is the embodiment of the Earth that at sunset devours the sun and becomes the power of the solar star during its night run.
It is therefore the Sun that shines in the Underworld. It also tells of a blue leopard, who lives in the Heavenly World. It has two heads to devour the Sun and the Moon (eclipses) and the Tupinamba Indians say that at the end of time it will come to earth to fall prey to men.
In the Amazon, like the shamans of that land, it eats the bark of Ayahuasca, the powerful psychotropic plant used to have visions. The Indians say he does it “to jump into the other reality”. No white saw it directly, even though they found traces of it. But in experiments on cats, they saw them, after eating the ayhuasca, leaping backwards: jumping “on the contrary”, towards the Other World.
He is also the protector of corn. The Indians tell that from the beginning 4 leopard, s stand guard at the 4 corners of the corn fields.
Element: Chthonic animal, comes from the depths of the Earth. But like the man after him, he acquired the power to dominate all the elements. He is also guardian of Fire. He brought it with the power of the Thunder and the Underground Sun.
It belongs to the West, direction of the Underworld, of the Land of the Dead and of Thunder. Expansive phases: It is active especially at night. But in part also during the day, especially at dusk and dawn, and it is no coincidence: these are in fact the “intermediate” hours, in which openings between Realities are opened, goes jacks that the Leopard, -shamans cross, often devouring the ayahuasca.
It pairs, it seems, in all periods of the year. Body parts: As a jumping animal, it has powerful limbs and joints. But his mastery of stalking requires great power in the eyes and in the sense of smell.
His jaws and teeth are then incredibly strong, among the few that can even break the shell of the most solid turtles. The unusual technique of killing, which does not break the victim’s neck, but the bones of the temples, tells us that the leopard strikes the head and the evolved areas of the brain and that these powers are nourished: head, 6th chakra.
The leopard as a messenger: If you hear a leopard roar, it is possible that the spirit of a dead man is coming to speak to you.
The leopard in fact brings us very demanding powers to manage, such as strength and versatility together, talent in many different fields, but also solitude, the power to manage these talents alone, without the help of others.
The leopard, -men, if they take their power in hand, know how to express themselves on very different terrains, explorers of vast and uncontaminated territories in both literal and spiritual sense. They are masters of stalking and waiting for the right moment, and when they attack they are inexorable.
It is difficult to dominate the aggression of the leopard and can be, when it is the moment, possessed: they absolutely must train themselves to keep their ally on this plane under control. They have the ability to throw light into the Underworld and illuminate places that most others would not like to see.
Individualists, surly, often intolerant in the presence of others, susceptible, need their living space that is not invaded. They may have difficulties in married life. They must develop their own projects and keep their intentions secret, otherwise they will lose power and eventually be weak and defeated.
All that they realize will be due only to their personal efforts. They are fascinating but arouse fear and mistrust. Shy but also aggressive and sometimes ruthless. They manage to live in situations where others would not survive and find nourishment masterfully in unexpected ways and in all fields. For this reason it is not surprising that they can become guides of other people and masters, while remaining in the end alone (as well as traditional shamans).
They know how to see in the dark and therefore have clairvoyant qualities, often from childhood. However, if they cannot manage or refuse the challenge of mastering their power, they will have problems with their sight and their teeth, they will not be able to express aggression and the leopard will become aggressive against them. Or they will be dominated by the animal from time to time without actually being able to exploit its power.
They are active at night and around the clock, but more at night. Their powers, especially shamanic, will be greater in the hours of sunset and dawn.
Leopard – Meaning
The leopard or panther is a species of feline of the subfamily of the panterini, it has a fawn coat dotted with rosettes; there is also a melanic form. It is a solitary and opportunistic feline and is widespread in Africa and Southeast Asia in numerous habitat types.
The leopard has a long and muscular body, well proportioned, with large legs. The pectoral muscles are developed to allow them to climb trees. The long tail is curved upwards when the animal walks and acts as a barbell when moving between trees.
The average weight of the leopard is 60 kg, but the largest specimens can reach 90 kg, the body length reaches 1.5 meters, with a tail of almost one meter. The height at the withers reaches 80 cm.
During a sprint, the speed of a leopard can reach 58 km / h. It is an excellent climber who is able to lift prey much heavier than he is, up to 6 m in height, he is also an excellent jumper who jumps from a standing position of six meters long and three meters high.
The leopard is an exclusively solitary animal except during the mating season. I am the proud Leopard, Animal of Power and Totem. I’m not the strongest, but that doesn’t take anything away from me, on the contrary. Do you know how to become strong? Testing yourself. You learn by trial and error of course when you try and try again to succeed.
False steps are an essential part of the learning process. I am the Leopard and I know the measure of strength to perfection. Ponder and wise, nothing more than necessary, nothing less. I am mistaken for sure, but always less frequently, you see errors, I need adjustments. There is feral beauty in the wisely measured expression of power.
Understanding and expression, this is the right measure of strength. Being the strongest is good for nothing, it doesn’t last, and it can’t last forever. Being aware of your current strength and knowing how to best use this lasts and lasts forever. A mature force must be employed and bent around an intent.
The meaning of leopard tattoos usually embodies several themes and concepts that surround both the physical characteristics of the animal, as well as its lifestyle, customs and symbolism that has incarnated while being admired by different cultures.
Since its habitat is so varied, its patterns are so colorful and its way of interacting with the environment that surrounds it, this last aspect has become essential when it comes to finding a meaning for your tattoo. Among the most common meanings that leopard tattoos acquire are:
Loneliness, autonomy, self-knowledge, independence, trust. Leopard tattoos are closely related to Shamans, natural medicine connoisseurs, sorcerers and psychics, since many cultures believe that the Leopard Spirit is able to walk effortlessly between the plane of the Physical and Spiritual World. In the case of snow leopards, these interpretations for tattoos solidify on the basis that they live in the high mountains of Central Asia, including the powerful mountains of the Himalayas.
All members of this family are known for their ability to stealth and stalking. In fact, leopards tend to stalk their prey, gliding through trees and along steep rocks on the outside of their front legs, then slowly and carefully distribute their weight on the rest of the legs to continue walking, this way, avoid breaking twigs or leaves and thus alert the prey of their presence.
