Wolf can survive either as a loner or as part of a pack, and he howls to remind you that you have to balance the needs of others with the needs of the self. If you’re giving yourself away to your own detriment, you are living in opposition to Wolf medicine. Return to balance—and begin feeding your emotions, your mind, and your body.
Today’s Power/Totem Animal – Wolf

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.
