Feline: The cat family can represent a female, you or a person close, or a situation that might traditionally be thought of as a female responsibility. It can sometimes suggest chasing a love that is not returned.

Protection: The Tiger may come at a time when we need strength of some sort. Are you feeling under pressure with something? Are you eating healthy and exercising? Do you feel under attack?

Clarity: A time when things begin to come clear. Can also mean clairvoyance or spiritual enlightenment. Sometimes it warns to look clearly at a person or situation before making any decisions.

The Tiger can indicate a time of decision and moving on. In a relationship be true to your inner feelings and let go of the past for new beginnings.

Power Animal Cards & Meanings
Spirit Animal Cards & Meanings

Upright Meanings: snap judgements, rejuvenation, awakening, self-evaluation, decisiveness, composure, apportioning blame, rebirth, homesickness, judgment, atonement, judgement, improvement, promotion, renewal

The Tiger can indicate that you and/or someone you care about are being judged too harshly by others. It can also indicate that you are judging people harshly or making snap judgments yourself. Alternatively, The Tiger can also be an indication that you have achieved a level of clarity and composure that allows you to calmly evaluate yourself and your choices in order to make positive decisions. You have come through your past karmic lessons with increased self-awareness and you are allowing healing to take place so you can move forward in a positive direction. If you have a big decision to make when this major card appears, use the karmic lessons you have learnt from the past to help you make the right choice. The Tiger upright can represent a legal matter or court case being resolved. If you have acted honorably and told the truth, this matter should be resolved in your favor. If you have been dishonest, don’t expect things to go your way. You need to clear your conscience and try to make amends for your misdeeds. This major card can also signify being separated from someone you love by an ocean or sea. You can expect to be reunited with them soon when it appears. It can also indicate homesickness.

Reversed Meanings: indecisiveness, unfair blame, indecision, malicious gossip, lack of self-awareness, failure, death, worry, theft, ill-health, unwillingness to learn karmic lessons, self-doubt, disappointment

In reversal, The Tiger still is very often a card about jumping to conclusions, as well as decisions and judgments which are too hastily made. If you are prone to such things, this is a clear signal to slow down and give things more thought (and to give people more chances.)This can be a real time of spiritual awakening. This card in any configuration, (reversed OR upright) does not mean that you need to judge someone or something. Particularly when The Tiger is reversed, the decision has already been made.
