Hungry Like The Wolf

Wolf: Feb 19 – Mar 20

Deeply emotional, and wholly passionate, the Wolf is the lover of the zodiac in both the physical and philosophical sense of the word. The Wolf understands that all we need is love, and is fully capable of providing it. Juxtaposed with his/her fierce independence – this Native American animal symbol is a bit of a contradiction in terms. Needing his/her freedom, yet still being quite gentle and compassionate – we get the picture of the "lone wolf" with this sign. In a nurturing environment the Wolf is intensely passionate, generous, deeply affectionate, and gentle. Left to his/her own devices the Wolf can become impractical, recalcitrant, obsessive, and vindictive.

Not at all the picture of ferocity or terror, the Wolf is a creature with a high sense of loyalty and strength. Another misconception is that of the “lone wolf.” To the contrary, the Wolf is actually a social creature, friendly, and gregarious with its counterparts.

The Wolf is an incredible communicator. By using touch, body movements, eye contact as well as many complex vocal expressions – the wolf makes his point understood. Those with totem wolf symbols are of the same inclination – they are expressive both vocally and physically. Those who have the wolf as their totem animal are naturally eloquent in speech, and also have knack for creative writing.

Totem wolf symbols belong to those who truly understand the depth of passion that belong to this noble creature. The Wolf is a representative of deep faith, and profound understanding.

Further, the Wolf possess a high intellect, and have been observed using strategies about hunting, habitat and migration.

In history, the totem Wolf symbol appears with the founders of Rome, Romulus and Remus. Legend has it that the two founding brothers were raised and suckled by a she-wolf.

"People always make the wolf more formidable than he is."

Maybe I should change my name to LeisaWolf.

Wolves naturally are suspicious of humans. As well they should be, how do they know we are dangerous? Perhaps because they have an inbred knowledge that we are killers?

It's only natural.

Oh I love stinky meat, bring it on. I'll roll in it. Then I'll tease the other wolves with its heady scent, and growl, but then, I'll share it with them. LOL

Some vole sounds good - fresh and raw.

Let us not misunderstand the wolf - vilified through the words of people who would believe in conjured evil:<br />
<br />
"Of all cultural traditions the one with most impact on Western beliefs about the wolf stems from Christianity. Evocations of the assumed malevolent nature of wolves are popular in the Bible and the wolf preying on domestic animals is easily turned into a metaphor for Satan preying on innocent God-fearing Christians but for the shepherd Jesus who keeps his flock safe.<br />
<br />
Even today the wolf is not understood by the Church, exemplified by this quote from a fundamentalist Christian web site:<br />
<br />
"Though often cowardly when encountered on their own, they attack in packs in the evening, when the light is fading, killing and devouring the shepherd's sheep. Hunting together in large companies, their cries resound far and wide through the night air, instilling fear in the hearts of many with their mournful howls." (Simpson)"<br />

No chowder, just give me some rabbit or a small vole, I'll be happy. *howls at moon*

If you're a wolf, you have to go to the believers of such tales, mystic religions:<br />
<br />
at they said<br />
<br />
"Native Americans believe that Wolf is teacher and pathfinder to find new ideas and teach them to the tribe. He imparts a sense of family and loyalty, Moon is the power ally which helps Wolf to access the subconscious that has the secrets of knowledge and wisdom. Wolf tells people to seek out solitude to find the teacher within the self so they can teach others about spirituality. He helps people to learn to trust insights when they learn to value the inner voice. Some Native American tribes, African Dogon tribe and the Aborigines of Australia believe Wolf is allied with Sirius, the Dog Star. A number of these believe the teachers and ancestors came from there."<br />

<i>Symbolism to me is the symbol you might choose for yourself, but no one knows. I read all of these wolf things, and they are mostly true about me, but I place not as much stock in all that as I do in knowing myself well enough to portray myself as me, not a symbol.</i><br />

Vive la wolfie! haha
