Wolf Magick

 
 
Those wishing to work with the energy and magic of the wolf should first learn of about their spiritual purpose. Each wolf comes to this plane of existence with a special gift of knowledge, just as we humans do.. But unlike us, they (and most animals in the universe) are much better adapted to living within the balance of nature and with the flow of nature's energy.
 
To work with the wolf, one needs to understand how the universal energy is connected to each "type" of wolf and move forward from there.
 
The following is a brief explanation of this concept of Magick.
Wolves are considered by many to be the highest animal in the spiritual plane.
 
They represent the teachers and guardians of balance in nature.
 
Depending on their colour, they teach different lessons and share different energies with those they watch over and walk beside. Colouring is used as a means of spiritual classification for one basic reason.
 
Energy, all energy contains several properties or traits. It has a sound that can be recorded, a 'energy level' that can be measured, and a colour that can be photographed. For instance, place your hand on a stereo speaker and play a song. Do you feel the speaker vibrate with different variations based on the note being heard? Watch the flames of a fire. The intense or hottest part of the flame is white, or very light blue. The "cooler" portion of the flame is more red or orange. Attaching an energy or purpose to an object, or an animal based on their colour is not a new concept. It's as old as time.

Within The wolf community, each breed shares a lot of common energies, as outlined by Ted Andrews in his book Animal Speak. But learning the specific energies for the individual guides is also helpful when working with wolf magic.

The White Wolf
Known as the phantom, the white spirit wolf lives in the spiritual and physical dimensions simultaneously. They teach the lessons which help to bring both these lives into balance. The help us learn how to build the bridge between the two worlds so that we might learn the underlying purpose of events and issues in our life.


The Brown Wolf
These spirit wolves teach the lessons of health and healing. How to use the forces of nature in conjunction with the earthly knowledge of medicine to maintain a balance between the mind/body/spirit connections. Also includes red wolves, and golden wolves.
The Grey Wolf
The hidden lessons, reaching through the veil of sight into the realm of spirit. The gray spirit wolf is the teacher of spirit connections and communications. How we can balance our path with information from our spiritual teachers and guides..


The Black Wolf
The teachers of the physical. The black spirit wolf helps us to bring balance into the physical natures, desires, and expressions of our daily lives. They keep us focused on the issues of this plane of existence where our spiritual lessons help us to evolve along our chosen spiritual path. Superstitions
 
 
In Britain it was believed that if a wolf saw a man before he saw the wolf, the man would be struck dumb and could not cry out for help. If the man sees the wolf first, the wolf loses his ferocity and can't run away.
 
In many parts of Europe they believe that if you say the word "Wolf" in December you will be attacked by one.



The French, at one time, hung a wolf's tooth around a child's neck to protect it from evil spirits.
 
Wolves give birth only in May and during thunderstorms.
Hair taken from a specific area on the rump of a live wolf is an aphrodisiac.
 
The eyes of a wolf will glow in the darkness.

History of the Wolf
The Egyptian God Wepwawet was either pictured as a wolf or with a wolf head. A banner bearing his image was carried before the Pharoah in victory processions. However, both the Hindus and followers of the Zoroaster considered the wolf to be evil and a symbol of evil in human nature.
Plato and Pausanias both wrote about the wolf cult in Arcadia, the initiates of the cult worshipped Zeus Lycaeus, called themselves Lukoi, and sacrificed and ate wolves. The wolf was also associated with Apollo, (who had a bronze wolf image at Delphi)
Among the Celts, wolves were considered to be powerful, but helpful animals. Legend says that Cormac, King of Ireland, was always accompanied by them. The God Cernunnos was pictured with a wolf.
Odhinn had two wolves as constant companions in Valhalla. When there was an eclipse it was said that the wolves temporarily swallowed the globe.
 
  The Valkyries were sometimes shown riding wolves, in their aspect of soul-collectors. This idea may have survived in the belief during the middle ages that witches in the form of werewolves rode wolves through the night.
 
  In pre-Christian Europe the wolf was a popular clan totem. Many clans were accused of turning themselves into wolves at certain times of the year. The reality behind this is that these clans dressed in wolf skins and masks for certain religious rites.
 
Native Americans said that when the wolf howled, he created wind.. If he continued to howl, fog came. They considered the Moon it's power ally.
 Wolf Magick
The Magickal attributes of the Wolf: Cunning, escaping hunters, ability to pass by dangers invisibly, outwitting those who wish you harm, fighting when necessary. Sometimes an Astral wolf will lead you to a Spiritual Teacher. Wisdom, hunting and seeking, magick, dreams, intuition, listening, death and rebirth, transformation. Strong protection. Spiritual guidance in dreams and meditation.

 
Save the Wolf
Wolves have long been mis-understood. ..at one time wolves were so common and dangerous in Britain that the month of January was set aside for hunting them. January was called Wolfmonat, or Wolf Month. Although wolves were exterminated in England in 1509, they could be found in the mountains of Scotland and Ireland until the beginning of the 18th century.

 
  The gray wolf once ranged over the entire western hemisphere, from Central Mexico to the Arctic regions (except in dry desert areas). In Asia it prowled as far south as parts of India. It disappeared from Britain and most of Europe hundreds of years ago.

Fortunately today, there are several groups in the US that are devoted to raising and studying wolves with a goal to stop their extinction. There is a large wolf preserve in Washington State that offers guided tours and if you arrange to go there near the Full Moon and just at dusk, you will be treated to a symphony of wolf calls by the entire population. Although, this is something that would be much better and more natural, heard in the wild.
