Dreams About Wolves
Dreams about Wolves appear as reminders of loving, powerful and loyal people and your relationship to them. Wolves are very social and in dream analysis they symbolize connection. If Wolves walk along with you in Dreamtime, then you are being supported on your path by community and family. A Wolf close at your side symbolizes a specific person, most likely your life partner.
Wolves seen at a distance or along the edges of your dream suggest that you are longing for a strong relationship with your family or an individual. In these dreams, take a look at the people who are in the dream (connections you have) and those who are absent (connections you are missing).
Pay attention to how far you can go in a dream where a Wolf appears. Wolves are careful observers of boundaries.
Wolves hunt in packs and when sharp pairs of eyes peer out at you from the dream world then it could symbolize that you are being hunted by the pack, a scary thing! A group of people, a series of incidents or even your own doubts might be trying to ‘gang up on you’. They are surrounding you and circling closer in for the kill, but remember Wolves exclusively hunt the weak or sick animals. Do you need to find your strength? Is it time to stand up to the pack?
Living untamed lives, Wolves symbolize the wildest part of life especially for the Shamanic path. Dreams about Wolves where the Wolf is easily spooked or howls a deep throaty song to the moon, you know you are near the wild edge of nature. Untamed and unpredictable power lies here. The Wolf symbolizes this power, and your dream interpretation may find that he is there to give you courage to face deep fears.
Howling at the moon can also symbolize the power to awaken the Great Spirit and personal insights, or it could start you on a wild path along internet memes. Look for clear blue moonlight and careful dream interpretation to let you know if this Wolf dream is tracking the path you want to follow.
Fortunately, the Wolf’s ability to shift his shape symbolizes his ability to be flexible and guide you along the paths of the forest. Native American and Celtic customs give the Wolf the roles of pathfinder and teacher. This is true most often when he appears as the lone Wolf. He is there to help you explore the wild, deep and intuitive knowledge of yourself and your situation.
Don’t be drawn in when a Wolf seems overly insistent about interacting with you in the dream world. This kind of Wolf dream symbolizes that the trickster Wolf who starred alongside Little Red Riding Hood has come to play with you and he is up to no good.
