Wolf Native American Zodiac Sign Birth Totem 1200x1200

Wolf Totem

Those with the Wolf birth totem exhibit a wealth of gentility, compassion and benevolence. This Native American Zodiac Sign also demonstrates many other beautiful characteristics including adaptability, sensitivity and honest love toward those in their circle.

Wolf Birth Totem Overview

Some Native American, Shamanic, & Medicine Wheel Astrologers use Cougar for this totem.

Wolf medicine evokes the energy of spiritual illumination!

The Native American Zodiac tells us that if you were born in the Northern Hemisphere between February 19 and March 20, or in the Southern Hemisphere between August 23 and September 22, you have the Sign of the mystical Wolf inspiring you.

In Western tradition this corresponds to the sensitive Pisces (North) and precise Virgo (South).

The challenge for Wolf is avoiding becoming impractical when it comes to helping solve the problems of others. She must also watch her timid nature as others may take advantage of it.

If you are a Wolf you are also a seer (psychic, clairvoyant, medium, etc.).

Connecting with your higher self, the Ancestors and the Divine enhances this gift. You know the Mysteries are out there and your always tuning into that still small whisper that provides insight and sensitivity.

At times you may feel disconnected from daily life because of your strong spiritual nature, and this is certainly one of your life’s lessons.

Compassion walks with Wolf, and it’s an attribute Wolf can teach others.

It is sometimes hard to look at life’s darker side, but our world needs Wolf’s kindness and communal mindset.

It is not unusual for Wolf to dedicate much of their lives to spiritual pursuits, particularly personal enlightenment.

Wolf Traits, Personality and Characteristics

Wolf aligns with the East wind, the direction of East-Northeast and the element of Water.

The Native American Zodiac tells us that the Wolf season foreshadows the earth’s renewal and the season of spring.

All that fresh energy gives Wolf dynamic bursts especially for starting new projects.

Water influences Wolf emotions, saturating them with empathy. Wolf joins the Frog clan with the expressive Snake and helpful Woodpecker.

Ever-wise Wolf loves to take on the role of guide and teacher, particularly in close knit settings.

Wolf always pays close attention to family and their inner circle. This birth totem appreciates people who speak and act from their heart, but generally avoid confrontations.

Nature shows us that Wolf has highly refined senses including vibrational ones. This is part of the reason why their spiritual instincts are so “spot-on”.

Wolf can sometimes be a little confusing because they seem to crave freedom as much as intimacy, and will move in and out emotionally to feed both desires.

You can trust Wolf to illustrate great inventiveness, which sometimes actually distracts them from goals and intention.

Wolf is also a sensitive creature so watch your words and how you deliver them. Respect and honesty are both very important to this totem sign.

Wolf’s magic crystal is Jade, which helps them become more fun-loving.

Jade also compliments the Wolf’s generosity and love. The healer’s plant, Plantain, aligns with Wolf providing grounding and protection.

Wolf Totem Love Compatibility

The Native American Zodiac tells us that Wolf pairs best with those born under the sign of Snow Goose, Woodpecker, Bear, Snake and Beaver.

When Wolf is in a committed relationship there is no question of his/her love and devotion.

Wolf is sensitive, romantic, and has a tendency to loose themselves in love. Your Wolf mate will know what you need and when you need it, and want to fulfill your fantasies if you give them tenderness in return.

Wolf Totem Animal Career Path

Wolf excels in any career requiring sensitivity and insight.

The only caution is that they must put up energetic safeguards so they don’t become overwhelmed.

Wolf is a practiced networker who enjoys a more laid-back office space with co-workers they enjoy.

Sample careers for the Wolf include writing, spiritual guidance, and RN. More often than not, Wolf prefers to work behind the lines rather than in the spot light.

        I was so excited reading all of this information! I sat and meditated after pulling the Spirit Animal card from my Angel Prayers Oracle cards and it suggested that I read the prayer on the card and close my eyes and focus allow my spirit animal animal. It was interesting because I saw a wolf face and then I saw an owl sitting and then flying with the wolf walking in the background. I read up on the owl and it has a connection to the wolf and then I looked at my birthday spirit animal there it was! The wolf fa e I saw. I was relieved reading this information because it was similar to the owl and the description was also so similar to other things I’ve read and heard today. I’m so glad I found your site.

    This is amazingly accurate! I’ve always felt a strong connection to wolves. Turns out that’s what my totem is! Water is definitely my element! I love rivers and streams and such! Blue is my favorite color. Perhaps the most accurate would be the part about dedicating much of my life to spiritual pursuits and personal enlightenment!

  6. Angela says:

    Hello, can you help me in defining North Hemisphere vs South Hemisphere? As in, Nother US vs South US? Or north of equator vs South of equator?

    • Bernadette King says:

      Hi, Angela;

      Native American Birth Totems are based on the hemispheres of the earth and, so, use the equator as the dividing line.

      Hope that helps.

    Hello I’m a native from the Southern Hemisphere A Maori from New Zealand and I have recently been searching to see what my spirit Animal is and to try and connect with her… It’s funny I knew i was wolf before I read this and this beautifully detailed description has confirmed this and I resonate with this so much.

    Hi Bernadette,

    Thank you for bringing this to us. This being my birth totem and reading particularly about learning to accept that your both straddling this world and the spiritual world as well as to recognise that seeing the challenges in the world and the darkness can be so hard for the wolf. It makes so much sense and makes me feel much less abnormal and more embracing of myself. Now I want to know how I can learn as much as possible about the wolf and how to harness the talents of the wolf. I’m young and I’m the wrong career but want to make some changes.

  14. debbie says:

    all my life, i have loved wolves. i collect wolf figurines, pictures etc. i just found out that my sign is the wolf. i never knew. but i had an intense feel for the wolf. now i know it is my spirit animal, it all makes so much sense.. the explanation of the wolf is so me.

    • Bernadette King says:

      Hello, Debbie;

      Oooo! I LOVE it when folks finally discover why they have always loved a particular animal! It just brings so much joy to their heart! It sounds like Wolf is your Spirit, Totem AND Power Animal. Powerful!

  30. Trevor says:

    Ok I’m a wolf thank you for finding out my spirit animal

  31. Peter McCallum says:

    I live in Western Australia born August 26 1967
    I was born in the United Kingdom
    I have an affinity with dogs, currently my family dog and inseparable friend is an Alaskan Malamute named Tahoe. I have always loved wolves and am very protective of them any way I can. My birthdate puts me in the Wolf Totem range for the Southern Hemisphere where I live, however I was born in the Northern Hemisphere. Does that allow me to walk with brother Wolf?
    Thank you
    Pete McCallum

    • spiritanimals says:

      Hi, Peter;

      Yes. Absolutely you can walk with brother Wolf. Even if Wolf is not your birthday totem it can be your Soul Totem. With your love of Dogs and Wolves it’s really clear Wolf is the Animal Ally your own spirit most resonates with. Walk in joy, peace, and power, my friend.

      Stay wild,

      • Sheila says:

        Hi! How do you define a soul totem?

      • Ben ally says:

        Hi Bernadette king and I think my true soul spirit animal might be a Velociraptor because I am small, mostly eat meat, like to be in small groups and I am intelligent so what do you think please answer this as I’m waiting for a long time and can I use its power? This has been Ben .

  32. Velo says:

    Hi Bernadette king, I Think My spirt animal is a velociraptor because I am small, intelligent and love meat and I’m good at teamwork with friends in small groups are you sometimes can make a good dog noise or our owl Noises but Mostly I’m more like a raptor is this my true spirit animal and can I use its power ? Hope to hear from you soon Bernadette.

  33. Terri says:

    I believe this! Lately my husband and I have been thinking of getting a dog. Siberian Husky to German Shepherd. But I told him if I could I would prefer a Wolf. Not knowing if that would even be possible to find. Because I was so drawn to them. Now I come across this and it makes sense to me. I was born on March 16th close to midnight. I’m a night owl. Nights are the best time for me to write or get things done around my home. I am also very intuitive/psychic. I have always dreamed of things in my life which have come true. So, I know when something good or bad is about to come to pass. Now, if I can only find a way to find a wolf for a dog. There has to be someone who raises them safely, right!

  34. Katherine says:

    I also feel the crow is my spirit ,

  38. Nel says:

    Good day. I’m having a interesting life. Life’s not easy and struggle with anxiety and my mom said since I was a baby, I was use to look at people before I let them in my space. My spiritual animal has always been a wolf and since I can remember, Native Indians especially Sue Indian has got my attraction. I can be in any mood, bad or sad, when I listen to the actual old raw recordings, my mood stabilizes and sometimes I get tears in my eyes from the beauty of the drums and voices. It’s always been a family saying that I must do my Raindance when it rains. It feels like the drums is beating in my soul and one time I was humming a song for several days and I asked people if they knew the song, but no one did. My mom said once that my grandma was singing something similar when she was a little girl. We couldn’t understand where it came from. We joked then as for where I come from.
