Animal Spirits: The Bobcat

As some of you may have noticed, I recently moved down the coast from San Francisco to Santa Barbara, which lies sandwiched between the ocean and the mountains of a national forest. My new home is only a short drive to the beach, but it is within walking distance of the trails, which my two Alaskan Malamutes absolutely love! It’s also an ideal quiet location for me for what I wish to accomplish in the next few months: to spend time, outside of doing my Astrology, Tarot, and Life Coaching sessions, to focus without much distraction on writing my books and developing my own inner growth and awareness process.

I rise early in the morning – before sunrise this time of year – and need to wear a headlamp to take the pups on their morning trail walk. On our first morning walk here I saw from a distance two very large glowing green eyes silently watching us from behind some bushes. As we got closer, I saw that it was a bobcat. She watched us, and I watched her magnificent green eyes illuminating the way for us.


Not the actual eyes I saw, but I found this pic to give you an idea. Click for photo source.

The pups did not give her the slightest notice. She was not a concern for them, nor was she a concern for me. I knew she had appeared out of the darkness to affirm I had made the right move and was in the right place for my present life goals.

The Bobcat symbolizes:

  • Solitude & Patience
  • Awareness & Clear Vision in Darkness (literally and figuratively)
  • Seeing through Illusions & Within Ourselves/Our Shadows
  • Seeking Ancient, Esoteric, & Mystical Knowledge & Wisdom
  • Planning, Strategy, & Intelligence

  1. How exciting for you Julianne. ❤ It feels like a good choice, the move. All my love to you and the fur kids ❤

    Congratulations Julianne! I actually did not know you moved – but I felt intuitively that you were not close to me anymore. I actually lived in Santa Barbara for a year and a half and lived in Ojai for 8 years prior to that. It is a good place to go into your inward journey and focus on your writing and creativity. Have a Merry Christmas and I will be reading your posts. I loved this one on the bobcat and what a meaningful animal spirit to run across at this juncture.
    Big huge hugs,
    Kathleen xoxo
