Either way, I can see how I identify with the wolf a lot more now... it's like, wow. Oh yeah, I may be able to identify with more, but the stuff that I bolded is what I think I identify with at the moment. I also seem to identify with the panther a lot too, and even the dragon. Seems my tattoo choices are not a coincidence.
Edit: Adding the comment below, just in case... thank you by the way.
Wolf is the pathfinder, the forerunner of new ideas who returns to the clan to teach and share medicine. Wolf takes one mate for life and is loyal like Dog. If you were to keep company with Wolves, you would find an enourmous sense of family within the pack, as well as a strong individualistic urge. These qualities make Wolf very much like the human race. As humans we also have an ability to be a part of society and yet still embody our individual dreams and ideas.
In the Great Star Nation, Wolf is represented by the Dog Star, Sirius, which legend tells us was the original home of our teachers in ancient times. Sirius was thought to be the home of the gods by the ancient Egyptians, and is still considered so by the Dogan tribe in Africa.
The senses of Wolf are very keen, and the Moon is its power ally. The Moon is the symbol for psychic energy, or the unconscious that holds the secrets of knowledge and wisdom. If you have Wolf medicine, you may be able to share your personal medicine with others. Your intuitive side may also have an answer or teaching for your personal use. As you feel Wolf alive in you you may wish to share your knowledge by journalling, wrtiting, or lecturing on info. that helps others better understand their own uniqueness or path in life. You appreciate lonely places because they bring out the true you.
