Further information:

Wulf, Big Bad Wolf and Lycanthropy See also: Asena, Capitoline Wolf, Fenris, Skinwalker, Warg, Werewolf and Wolf of Gubbio In Norse and Japanese mythology, wolves were portrayed as near deities: in Japan, grain farmers worshiped wolves at shrines and left food offerings near their dens, beseeching them to protect their crops from wild boars and deer,[197] while the wolf Fenrir of Norse mythology was depicted as the son of Loki. Other cultures portrayed wolves as part of their foundation myths: in the mythology of the Turks,[198] Mongols and Ainu, wolves were believed to be the ancestors of their people,[199] while the Dena’ina believed wolves were once men, and viewed them as brothers.[200] Wolves were linked to the sun in some Eurasian cultures: the Ancient Greeks and Romans associated wolves with the sun god Apollo,[200] while the wolf Sköll in Norse mythology was depicted pursuing the setting sun.[201] In Roman mythology, the Capitoline Wolf nurses Romulus and Remus, the future founders of Rome.

The wolf offers some of the most striking animal meanings in the realm of spirit animals. The power of the wolf brings forth instinct, intelligence, appetite for freedom, and awareness of the importance of social connections. This animal can also symbolize fear of being threatened and lack of trust. When the wolf shows up in your life, pay attention to what your intuition is telling you.

The wolf: A Power Animal Symbolic of Freedom

 

Wolf power or spirit animals point to an appetite for freedom and living life powerfully, guided by instincts. When a wolf manifests its presence as a guide in your life, it could be a call to live your life more freely, to bring the intensity of passion in your everyday endeavors.

 

Wolves are wild animals that are not easily domesticated and when they appear as spirit guides, they could be an invitation to look at what supports your authentic self and the true expression of yourself.

 

The wolf totem is a reminder to keep your spirit alive and trust your instincts to find the way that will best suit you.

 

Further Connect With Your Wolf Spirit Animal

 

Here are a few questions to uncover the meaning of the wolf as a spirit animal:

 

  • Do you need time for yourself to reconnect with your true, deep passions in life?

  • Do you need to find more isolation to “collect” yourself and reconnect to your personal, spiritual quest?

  • Do you need time or help in distinguishing what is true and authentic from lies and deceit in communications with someone? Within yourself?

  • Like the wolf that howls, do you need to let some of the tension out and express yourself loud and clear in your circle of close relationships
