We are going to look at the totem of wolf today but in a more specific manner than I normally do. Last week, one of my readers stated that she wished that she could find out what her birth totem was. So, today we are going to look at the animal spirit that has been walking by her side since the day she took her first breath which was March 2nd. I feel a real connection for this post as she shares both the birth totem and date of birth with my husband. The year is slightly different but that does not really matter. My father also walks with Wolf medicine.
Jo Ann was born during the Big Winds Moon which is the last moon governed by Waboose the Spirit Keeper of the North which is known as the White Buffalo in the English language. Our ancestors looked at wolf as a teacher and a pathfinder who would always return to the clan to share the knowledge he had gained while on the hunt.
People like Jo Ann, my father and my husband have a strong sense of family whether that pertains to actual relatives or the “pack” of friends in their lives. They are known for their loyalty much like the cousin spirit of dog. Wolves feel strongly about the society that they live in. With that being said, a person with wolf medicine also carries a strong urge for being an individual and can successfully be a part of both levels. They can be an active and productive part of society while still maintaining their own ideas and dreams.

Wolf people have a kinship with the moon and its cycles which symbolizes psychic energy. Whether they have realized it in their consciousness they are intuitive in their very nature. They will often spot the hidden parts of any situation or the hidden traits of individuals without even thinking about it.
Compassion is often a term associated with people who walk with Wolf. It has a lot to do with their seeking of knowledge to share with their fellow humans that will allow them to reach new heights. One can not do this without compassion for mankind. The gracious sharing of a teacher is different than one who has knowledge but will not pass it on to others. There is a kindness and considerate nature to one who seeks wisdom for the better of the whole like wolf.
Just as a wolf in the wild, people who walk along side wolf in spirit are very conscious of territory. They need a well defined area when it comes to home or work. This also transcends over to relationships. Being social spirits, companionship is very important to people with the wolf totem.
Out of curiosity I looked up the name of Jo Ann to see if there was a connection to wolf there, also. Her name means “God is gracious”. I see a connection as a gracious person is often a compassionate person. Teachers are gracious and kind in sharing what they know to those who do not know the same things that wolf does. Also the connection of a higher spirit fits together with the intuitive nature from a different plane of consciousness.
This has been a very fun post for me to write for you all today. As I meditated on the information and looked at my resources I saw so much of my father and husband in the message. How about you Jo Ann? Does any of this fit you?
