The cougar is a symbol of raw power. Are you owning your power? Are you in control of your inner space, your decisions, your attitudes, and life?
Are you asserting your power? People may not like you doing that and may rather keep viewing you as the old person you used to be; these kind of people usually don't want to update their picture of who you are and what you are capable of, because it means having to recognize where they themselves refuse, or are afraid, to change.
Cougars leap toward new opportunities and, as a totem, they remind you to not only do the same, but to invest no part of yourself, or your dreams, in those people who would prefer you be an older version of yourself. As hard as that may be at times, it is important.
The cougar teaches us that there are times to be gentle and times to be aggressive and assertive. Are you being decisive in your use of personal power? Are you hesitating or taking control of your life?
Make sure you do not get too comfortable with the status-quo; recognize the need for decisiveness and vigilance even when times seem good.
