Full Moon, Wolf Medicine, law of attraction

This Cancer Full Moon is  known as The Wolf Moon in Native American teachings.

The Cardinal Cross energy of this Full Moon also reminds me of a Native Medicine Wheel, with the 4 directions marked now as the Sun and Pluto in the North { element of Air } Uranus and the South Node in Aries in the East {Fire element} the Moon in the South { Cancer } Water element, and the North Node in Libra in the West as EARTH as it would be in the Medicine Wheel Indigenous Teachings that I studied. Each tradition places the elements in different directions. Astrology has the masculine elements aligned in oppositions. In Indigenous or wiccan teachings they are usually opposite masculine/feminine magnetic forces. 

We are in the Cardinal Cross hairs most definitely on this Full Moon and it;s making my tummy feel very queasy and teary.

I have felt a lot of deep shadow material surfacing. This may feel unpleasant physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually but it is good. Cleansing. Tears are good, wash away the pain.

I love wolves, I always have.  I think it stems from a fantastic book that I read from the library when I was a child which I still fondly remember called The Wolf King  written by Joseph W. Lippincott in 1949 about a giant black wolf in Alberta.  Remember that whatever it is you are attracted to, and pay attention to will come to you. That is the Law of Attraction.

Use the energy of the wolf to help guide you over the next two weeks until the New Moon in Aquarius, or whenever you like.Wolves need to be protected and respected, not feared. Wolves are highly intelligent pack animals, who mate for life. 

Wolves have powerful instincts, and symbolize intuition as they are so tied into the lunar forces, singing and howling at Full Moons. Have you ever heard wolf howls on the Full Moons? Wolf characteristics are loyalty and trust. They are great communicators, symbolizing teachers, leaders and organizers as they live and work in packs. 

Romulus and Remus, the founders of Rome were nursed by a great she-wolf. Mongolians believed they are descendants of wolves. The modern fear of wolves in fairy tales, is a smear campaign designed to keep individuals from trusting their primal instincts. If you own a dog, you know how loyal and big dog’s hearts are. Wolves are  the ancestors of all modern dog breeds and they became mans best friend.  I  have friends who have hand raised pure breed wolves and they can be tamed and are very much like huskies or shepherds. 

My family and I had an amazing encounter with a wolf in British Columbia years ago.  We were driving outside of a small town in the Kootenay’s, called Kaslo, on a two lane highway in broad daylight. A huge black animal sprung out from the woods and stopped and stood mid-lane down the road, staring right at us. We thought it was a black bear as it took up almost the entire lane in width. Then we noticed its large bushy tail which almost touched the ground. It had piercing golden eyes which were fixed at us. We tried to slow down but couldn’t as we had a large lumber truck behind us and there was no shoulder to stop at. The black timber wolf was amazing, dignified, fearless. It stood its ground until our car got too close, then it leaped into the woods and disappeared. In a few minutes we were in Kaslo and checked in at the small tourist information stop. We told them about the wolf, and they said. “Strange to see a lone wolf outside in the day. Very strange. Haven’t seen a big timber wolf in awhile.” We knew we had been blessed. I still have that golden eyed wolf gaze embedded in my heart. He was the real Wolf King I’d read about when I was a child. He or she is my spirit guide, totem animal. Have you had experiences like this?

MEDITATE with the wolf while the Moon is Full and on every full moon.

Do you feel like a lone wolf without a pack, support or a mate? Then call the wolves to be by your side. Do you have difficulty trusting people, or your instincts?  Call upon the wolf.

Before this meditation prepare some food for the wolf as an offering is good to attract wolf spirits. You could use meat or dog food.

In your meditation, visualize a wolf. Call the wolf to guide, teach protect and help you now. Howl like a wolf. Be patient, they are cautious. You will feel its presence. You may smell its breath, or feel its fur, which is soft.  Treat it with much respect when it appears, or speaks to you telepathically. They are powerful teachers. 

Ask the wolves to come into your dreams.  Dreaming about a wolf  according to Native American tradition  symbolizes beauty, mystery, solitude, self-confidence and pride.  

Let me know how your wolf meditation and dreaming go please. 

I was rereading that classic Women Who Run with the Wolves by Clarissa Pinkola Estes.

Ok You won’t believe this. I almost can’t. A small miracle has occurred. Talking about attracting what you put your energy into. I had an old audio tape of a Canadian singer, Nancy Ward that I’d adored and I’ve been searching for in my house for years. It has a song called WE ARE WOLVES which has moved my soul unlike almost no other song. It always brings me to tears. I love to sing it. I just found it after many years. Thank you thank you.  The album was  produced by Jack Lenz. They are both members of the Bahai community.

  2. Hello, my name is Susan. I’ve been following you for a few years. I often see info that you’ve posted, and I want to comment, but I guess I’m shy. Until I saw this post about the Cancer Full Moon and the Wolf Moon. You asked if any of us have similar experiences. I have had a few that are powerful with Wolf. The first was when Wolf came to my dreams about fifteen or sixteen years ago. It was a Black Wolf, I was afraid for only a moment, and I realized that this was a spiritual experience and that I was safe. As soon as I thought that (in my ‘dream’) I felt complete peace come over me. I knelt down to my knees, and Wolf came to me. It was nighttime and the Sky and Stars were so vivid and beautiful, and the Moon was Full, and the Mountains were capped with snow, but the valley that Wolf and I were in was warm and green and smelled of Spring, the grass was soft. And Wolf and I lay down together in the tall grass and fell asleep. I went thru a very troubled time not long after that, but I knew that Wolf was always with me. Because I feel Wolf is (one of )my Totem Spirits, I learned that I am a trail blazer, and a pathfinder. My healing has always been through ‘alternative’ and un-conventional methods. I was an alcoholic and drug addict. I survived two extremely violent relationships. I got out of the bad relationships and got sober and straight. Then went through severe depression. Modern medicine didn’t help, so I educated myself and used herbs and nutrition, crystals (Ruby is very good for depression as it activates the life force), I refused to give up, and I did make it out the other side. Its been nine years since that darkest time ended. I go to sleep at night grateful for the magic within me and around me, and I wake every day grateful for another opportunity to seek the beauty and magic of life. I’ve had other, powerful spiritual experiences with Wolf, ( and other Totems Spirits…Grandfather Pine, Grandmother Willow, and Bear) but this one was the beginning of this powerful journey. Thank you for giving me the opportunity to share my journey. Be well my friends.
