Wolf - Teacher. Though the moon rises every night
Wolf always finds something new to learn from it. We, too, in exploring the
hidden paths of consciousness, may discover new truths to share with the rest of
our clan, the human race.
Wolf's Wisdom Includes:
the end of one's cycle with dignity and courage
Death and rebirth
Guidance in dreams and meditations
Instinct linked with intelligence
Social and familial values
to pass unseen
Skill in protection of self and family
Taking advantage of change
Wolf is the pathfinder, the forerunner of new ideas who
returns to the clan to teach and
share what he has found. Wolf takes one mate for life and is loyal
like the dog. Wolf has a strong family tie as well as an individualistic
urge. Like Wolf, we also have a strong sense of family and yet
still embody our individualistic urges, dreams and ideas.
Wolf has very keen senses and the moon is its power ally.
The moon is a symbol of psychic
energy and holds the secrets of knowledge and wisdom. Wolf medicine allows the
teacher in all of us to come forward and aid the children of earth in
understanding the Great Mystery of life.
Wolf has come to you to tell you to use your powers of
teaching to help others. You may have a hidden answer to a pressing problem or a
method for the problem to be
solved. Wolf is asking you to share your knowledge with others so that they can
benefit from it. Wolf may also be telling you to seek out a place of loneliness,
where you can think and delve into yourself for answers that are needed but
hidden at this time.
(Wolf Medicine Card)
Feared and hated by men the world over, the mighty wolf has
been plagued by all forms of evil stories, myths and legends. Hunted, trapped,
and killed to the point of extinction, many of these majestic animals are gone
forever-- their breeds and blood lines never to be seen again.
In spite of the many horror stories of wolves hunting,
tracking and killing humans, no such event has ever been confirmed. Their eerie
and lonely howl, which can make the blood run cold, is merely their form of
Each howl, with its tone, depth, length, and frequency,
carries a different message to the pack, or to the partner who is out of sight.
They're merely "talking". If you carry wolf medicine, here are some
characteristics that sound familiar
You are fiercely loyal -- to friends, family, ideals and
principles. There is no compromise for you.
You are very territorial. You protect all that is yours and
your family's, at any expense. You are fearless in your protection, but not
reckless. You plan your strategy carefully and wait for the opportune moment for
the most powerful effect.
You have a strong family structure. There is no doubt who
the elders, patriarchs, and parents are,
or about their roles in the family structure.
Disobedience, selfishness, and unruly behavior is not
tolerated as there are strong boundaries for the young. They are taught well and
carefully so that they may assume leadership roles in their own family
You have an unrelenting sense of adventure. You love to
explore new things, to stretch out for new horizons. You have a thirst for
knowledge and for learning new things. You are eager to share these things,
which makes you a natural teacher. Your adventures may take you away from home
and family, but it is important that you have this base of security to return
You have an unrelenting need to be alone. You are so busy
being the protector, the provider, the teacher, and the trailblazer, that it's
very easy for you to become exhausted and burned out. In order to re-charge your
spirit and keep your balance, it is critical that you have time to be alone with
your thoughts and your own sense of self. This is one side of your nature that
must not be overlooked. Even if you lock yourself in the bathroom for 15 minutes
a day, the time alone must be honored if you are to have value to those you care
Wolf is power. Wolf is honor. Wolf is integrity.
Wolf: loyalty, perseverance, success
Wolves have been long regarded by Native Americans as
teachers or pathfinders. Wolves are fiercely loyal to their mates, and have a
strong sense of family while maintaining individualism. In the stars, Wolf is
represented by the Dog, Sirius, thought by many aboriginal tribes to be the home
of the Ancients. Wolves are probably the most misunderstood of wild animals.
Tales of cold-bloodedness abound, in spite of their friendly, social and
intelligent traits. They are truly free spirits, even though their packs are
highly organized. They seem to go out of their way to avoid a
fight. One is rarely necessary when a shift in posture, a growl, or a glance
gets the point across quite readily.
Traditionally, someone with Wolf Medicine has a strong
sense of self, and communicates well through subtle changes in voice inflection
and body movements. They often find new solutions to problems while providing stability
and support that one normally associates with a family structure.
Wolf's medicine includes facing the end of one's cycle with
dignity and courage, death and rebirth, Spirit teaching, guidance in dreams and
meditations, instinct linked with intelligence, social and family values,
outwitting enemies, ability to pass unseen, steadfastness, skill in protection
of self and family, taking advantage of change.
