Caracal Lynx

Meaning, Medicine & Magic

Caracal symbolizes timing, catching your dreams, and self-care.

Caracal is an amazing jumper, the best catcher of birds of any cats. You can spring forth your desires, leap ahead, and catch your dreams when the timing is right.

Timing is everything, and Caracal is a master at observing and sensing when it’s the best time to pounce or wiser to retreat. Retreat does not mean defeat. Retreating is an excellent strategy for survival.

No one can operate at their best or serve others without self-care. Caracal reminds you to notice when it’s time to put up healthy boundaries for yourself.

It’s okay to say no. It’s okay to say “not right now”. It’s ok to change your mind (many times). And it’s okay to always take care of your needs first. The more empowered and healthy you are within yourself, the more you’ll be able to spring for your dreams and help others reach theirs as well.

Studying Bobcat & Lynx can help you deepen into your Caracal self-care.

    I had a dream that a caracal came into my living room by opening my backyard sliding door. I ran to get my dogs and put them in my room to protect them. The caracal followed me to my room when I screamed, out maneuvered the cat, and ran with my dogs down stairs to my mothers room where I safely locked all of us in and called animal control. My dream ended with the cat being taken by police or animal control authorities right before I woke up. It’s bizarre because I haven’t remember any of my dreams in some months now and then I had this intense dream.
