Wolf Totem

Wolf Native American Zodiac Sign Birth Totem 1200x1200

Wolf Birth Totem Overview

Some Native American, Shamanic, & Medicine Wheel Astrologers 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).

Wolf people exhibit a wealth of gentility, compassion and benevolence.

Wolf also demonstrates many other enriching characteristics including adaptability, sensitivity and honest love toward those in Her circle.

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.

    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!

    Thank you so much for publishing this, I do identify with much of it. By extension, as a wolf, I’ve always loved dogs and miss all who have passed through my life deeply.

    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?

    • 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.

    Thank You Bernadette

    • Bernadette King

      Hello, Amie;

      You are most welcome! And thank you for the kind words! Oooo, my DREAM is to visit New Zealand and stay for several months! As a Maori, you must be very close to nature and so, SO in touch with your intuition. I’ll bet we all could learn a LOT from you!

    Very odd to have found this. I have many wolf tattoos, and find myself drawing wolves quite a bit. I also rescue dogs. ( have a pack of my own) This was so welcome to find. Thank you.

    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

    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

      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!

    Not only is my birth totem Wolf, my last name is Irish for wolf! My father was not of the Wolf totem but I inherited some wolf art from him.

    • Bernadette King

      Hello, MPaula;

      THAT is SO cool! I guess there’s no doubt what your Spirit, Totem, AND Power Animals is!
