The Bobcat is symbolic of Silence and Secrets.
The bobcat is a solitary animal and those with it as totem often find themselves in the same situation. Learning to be alone without being lonely is part of what bobcat teaches.
Because of it’s solitary nature, those who have bobcat as totem will find that their friends often share secrets with them. It is therefore important not to break confidences.
Bobcat also represents mysticism, and how to utilize the life force in silent but powerful ways. Bobcat’s magic is always most powerful when others do not know of it. Learning when to speak, how much and to whom will be essential. Bobcat people must learn to be cautious about what they share with others, having a tendency of their meaning to be distorted or blown out of proportion.
Bobcat people tend to be clairaudient and hear what is not being said out loud but what is being said through the subtle Spiritual realms.
When the Bobcat shows up in your life, look for that which is hidden in others hearts. Not all is it appears to be. Trust your own senses. If it doesn’t feel right, trust it, even if there is no logical reason to think otherwise.
When Bobcat has crossed your path, new opportunities will be in place within 7 to 10 months and you will have all you need to move forward.
Questions raised by the Bobcat- Are you not trusting your inner senses? Are you allowing others’ outside appearances to sway you into what does not feel right? Are you being too solitary? Do you need to look for new learning opportunities? Are you or those around you being indiscreet?
Bobcat will teach you that there is true power and strength through silence.
