The Wolf Totem
The Wolf travels in packs and come in many varieties. There are the Red Wolves, Black Wolves, Grey Wolves, and the Artic Wolf; however they all have similar characteristics and behaviors. They can be found all over the world in cold and warm regions. Even though the Wolf has been maligned throughout history they are very shy and usually uninterested in humans. They are not vicious animals; however their habit of howling at the moon has given them a bad reputation among some humans. Most people realize that they are fine animals and many revere them and listen to their wisdom.
Wolves travel in small to medium sized packs of eight or less members. There is an Alpha male and female and Beta members of the pack do not breed, but rather help take care of the offspring of the Alpha pair. They communicate with each other via, howls, growls, body posture, whines, and yelps. Howls are used to locate members of the pack, establish territory and in response the effects of the moon. They hunt in cooperation usually chasing their prey until they are too tired to fight back. They have been the inspiration of countless modern and ancient artistic endeavors, books, poems, songs, and lore.
The Wolf teaches us to embrace lunar energy, to respect our urges and unconscious desires and helps us to accept our intuition and physic perceptions. Rituals are very important to wolves. The legend of the “lone wolf” is not simply myth, lone wolves do exist and they do not travel with a pack, do not mark out territories and seldom howl.
The wolf has powerful jaws and they have forty-teeth. They are the largest in the wild canine family but come in many sizes and colors. Those that live in packs are very territorial and will mark and guard their living localities and protect their pups to the death. They are fast runners and excellent predators. A wolf’s sense of smell is one-hundred times that of a human. Contrary to popular belief, they rarely if ever attack humans and mostly try to avoid them.
