Native American and Celtic custom regard the Wolf as the way of find the deepest levels of self, of inner knowing and intuition. This is symbolized by the image of the wolf howling at the moon. Native Americans have long regarded wolves as teachers or pathfinders. In astrology, Wolf is represented by the Dog, Sirius, thought by many aboriginal tribes to be the home of the Ancients.
The Wolf is often associated with the ability to learn new ideas and then teach them to others. Wolf is thought to be an independent explorer coming back to his pack to teach what he has discovered. Wolf also teaches us to balance between the needs our family and the needs we have ourselves.
