Black Panther

Meaning, Medicine & Magic

The Black Panther spirit animal symbolizes courage, valor, beauty, grace, challenge, feminine power, and rites of passage.

Black Panther is a courageous guardian, blessed with ancient maternal lunar power, who is drawn towards solitary people.

Fierce feminine power resides within you. Become comfortable in your own skin, beauty, and grace.

Black Panther likes to take quick, decisive action, but reminds you that it’s necessary to learn how to pace yourself — not to push too hard on any one task.

It’s time to meet your hidden fears and reclaim your power, especially after a period of deep suffering.

There are positive power and medicine within your fears. Your fears can be overcome when you embrace your fear of the unknown and learn to follow your inner voice and the inner messages that come.

Trust yourself. It is time to awaken your inner passions, live your dreams, and begin a new chapter as Panther guides and protects you.

Lessons In Wild Play


Nature is a master teacher. Research your animal’s habits in the wild and try playing & acting as it. How could this help shift your experiences? 


  • The black panther is often called “the ghost of the forest.” Silently stalking and blending in with the night. Have you tried doing important work at night? Black Panther is there to support you in this.


  • Panthers are excellent swimmers. They dive into water in order to relax. Use the power of water to cleanse and calm yourself.

  • If you look closely, you can still see the spots on black panther’s fur. Let those in your trusted inner circle fully witness and see you.

    I always considered my self to be of angelic quality. You can imagine my surprise when in a meditation time this animal appeared!! My exercise required me to work with commuicating with the first animal that I saw. A very nice surprise!I I became the panther, and saw humans in the jungle ,looking for me! I turned around and slinked off….End meditation…( I am working with animal communication skills; learning from Val Heart.)The exercises for me are not easy.But I continue……

      The animals that appear to us are the ones we NEED most at that moment, not necessarily the ones we want or expect. These sound like great exercises. I’m glad you’re continuing to work with it.
