Meaning, Medicine & Magic

Tiger symbolizes power, passion, and sensuality.

Unlike other large cats, Tiger is an excellent swimmer. This enhances your ability to work with the element of water in order to access cleansing and spiritual connections.

Tiger’s most efficient work is done at night when they hunt. They silently move in a slow and careful way. How fast are you moving? Could you benefit from a slower, strategic approach?

The softness of Tiger’s fur brings an awakening to your sense of sensuality through touch, igniting intimate desires and inner passions.

Call on Tiger to help you evaluate options and to make a confident decision in alignment with your heart without worrying about the outcomes of every potential possibility.

Tiger brings you courage to face unconscious feelings of being threatened, as well as a warning to neutralize any aggression you might have towards others.

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 sound waves produced by a Tiger’s roar can actually temporarily paralyze animals and humans. This has been scientifically studied. Are you using this as a gift or a weapon? Practice your way, of discerning when and how it is appropriate to use your roar. This low-frequency sound can even travel through mountains! Be conscious of the power of your words. They expand and ripple further than you think. This does not suggest that you should become quieter, but only more responsible.

  • Tiger’s are awake during the day but hunt at night. Could it be that you are able to do your most efficient work at night? Try it.

  • There is a distinct white dot on the back of Tiger’s black ears, which looks like an eye. This is a message to predators that Tiger is always watching. This is a reminder to practice clear sight with presence and awareness in all dimensions.

  • Just like Zebra, Tiger’s stripes are unique to each individual alone, like a fingerprint. No two Tigers have the same pattern. Own your individuality.



Siberian Tiger:

  • This is the largest of all cats. You have a big presence and power. Don’t make yourself smaller than you are.

Bengal Tiger:

  • They have large territories and travel in solitude over long distances. What could some solo travel time do for you?

White Bengal Tiger:

  • They are very rare and their white coloration is thought to be a defect. It’s not. You are perfectly designed to hold the paradoxes of our world. White Tiger brings the black and white labels of our society together in harmony by seeing the truth within each extreme.

Call on Tiger

Invite Tiger into your life. Surround, inspire, and remind yourself that your spirit animal guide is with you & within you. Embody the skills of your power animal and share your unique gifts with the world.
