The Lion has long served as a symbol for many cultures, representing the sun, elements, and even gods. As a totem animal, lions embody strength, community, and feminine energy. Its roar and hunting prowess are signals for those connected with the lion to assert their authority with the courage and dignity of one who knows their own power. That aside, lion people should also recognized that these big cats are at their strongest in groups, called prides. They may want to reflect on whether they are making the most of their role in their community.
While many attribute strength and courage to male lions with their magnificent manes, they actually do little outside of watching over their current domain. In actuality, female lions are the primary hunters of their prides, traveling in packs and carefully coordinating ambushes on antelopes and other prey. Of course, they also birth and care for their cubs. Lion people should recognize and embrace the power of positive feminine energies inside and around them
