This year my theme is A Goddess' Glossary and we are looking at terms utilized by Goddesses, Priestesses, Shamans and Witches. These are terms that might occur in my new fantasy series, Paisley Cove.
J is for Jaguar
In the Paisley Cove stories, our main character Phoebe, meets all different types of nature based spiritualists. She meets shamans, witches, druids, and members from several indigenous tribes, all of whom have there own traditions and rituals. One of the residents of Paisley Cove is a Peruvian Incan descended shaman.
The jaguar was considered a god in Peru, Mexico, and Guatemala. It is seen to represent the power to face fears or confront enemies. Mayans, Aztecs and Incas all worshiped the feline.
Specifically in Peru, the Jaguar is considered the alter ego of the shaman and is believed to protect shamans as they move between earth and the spirit realm, which is necessary in their job of healing.
Tomorrow's topic will be Karma.
Loving life in Cuenca!
