DAILY POWER ANIMAL
Wolf spirit | Seek balance in all things.
Wolf can survive either as a loner or as part of a pack, and he howls to remind you that you have to balance the needs of others with the needs of the self. If you’re giving yourself away to your own detriment, you are living in opposition to Wolf medicine. Return to balance—and begin feeding your emotions, your mind, and your body.
The wolf is one of the most known power animals. Many people misunderstand the nature of these animals, labeling them as aggressive, and often think they’ll attack without any provocation. But, in fact, they are very clever, loyal, and protective of their herd.
Let’s take a look at some of the meanings and symbolisms of this spirit animal:
Powerful connection with your intuition: If you encounter a wolf in a dream or you come across an image of this powerful animal repeatedly, it is an indication that you are reconnecting with your higher instincts. This means you no longer need outside judgment to know how to navigate your way. Your mind is clear of doubts and your gut feeling is the compass pointing out the right steps to follow.
High intelligence: Contrary to popular belief, wolves do not react impulsively to their circumstances. They carefully calculate their actions and respond according to their experience and wisdom. Therefore, the wolf appears to remind you not to act rashly in whatever situation you are currently facing. It suggests you should trust in your skills and rise above your opponents’ game.
Loyalty and communication: Wolves, as mentioned above, are fiercely loyal to their pack. They have great communicational skills that lead them to be close to their family members. The wolf appears for you to recall your roots and get in touch with your family at times of distress or loneliness. By resuming your ties with your home place, you will find your way again.
A deep urge for freedom: Wolves are wild animals for a reason. They do not allow oppression by any authority, they are free, and they march to the beat of their own drum. When a wolf seems to constantly appear in your daily existence, it’s a warning sign you should pay close attention to. It means that you are losing independence and spontaneity due to an external situation. It is time to regain your freedom and fight for your territory before the flame of your spirit fades away.
The main personality traits of the wolf’s spirit are intelligence, determination, confidence, loyalty, and boldness. Like elephants or dolphins, wolves raise their young, care for injured family members, and live in family groups. There is evidence that they suffer and mourn the loss of family members. They have a highly advanced and efficient social organization that enables them to withstand any hindrance. The alpha wolves are in charge of maintaining order and coherence, while the rest of the members have also specific functions. Wolves look after each other as individuals, form friendships, and pass on knowledge from one generation to the next. A strong pack structure allows them to communicate effectively with each other. Older wolves teach younger ones hunting strategies and preserve a specific pack culture. They are curious and clever, plan their actions thoroughly, and do not let their opponents deceive them. They know exactly what they want and no one can make them question their goals and ambitions. Although they run in packs and are very protective of their lineage, they are also very strong and independent. They know who they are and never forget their roots. Despite the popular reputation of the lone wolf, there don’t live apart from each other. A lone wolf is not a wolf moving away from family and rebelling against the status quo but simply looking for another wolf for companionship. They are social but do not easily trust outsiders. They are also extremely careful not to be led astray by appearances or empty promises. They enjoy the outdoors and open spaces. Wolves need a proper range to roam freely, and they can’t stand to be locked up or told what to do. If this were to happen, they will bear their fangs and make it clear to everyone else that they are messing with the wrong creature.
DAILY ORACLE CARD
IX | 9 OF PENTACLES
This Nine of Pentacles card indicates that the querent has reached a stage in their lives where they are confident, independent and self-sufficient. Through hard work, this person is now ready to enjoy money, leisure and material comfort.
The difficulties that were faced in the earlier journey of the pentacles appear to be over. The Nine of Pentacles conveys not only joy, but also the feeling of security and freedom that material wealth can bring. Looking back, the querent can now celebrate the difficulties, the struggles, and the hard work that lined her path. Her previous challenges gave her the wider perspective she needs to understand the spiritual value of her success. Knowing how difficult it was to get here, she intends to enjoy every single day that is given to her.
The Nine of Pentacles conveys not only joy, but also the feeling of security and freedom that material wealth can bring.
Like the other nines in the tarot, sometimes this card indicates that the querent has not yet reached completion in their journey. There is something that is missing here – the element of her community and relationships. The gifts of the suits are meant to be shared, and yet this woman is so far from home.
The Nine of Pentacles can also be about a specific time period of this person’s life. This time is about restraint and grace. Diplomacy and grace will lead to the desired outcome.
JANUARY 2023 LUNAR CALENDAR
1/21/2023 NEW MOON IN CAPRICORN: Your relationship with your emotions might be more complicated because Moon in Aquarius has a strong need for emotional freedom. However, when you are in a group of people, it is easier for you to understand your feelings and free yourself from negative emotions such as fear, anger, and jealousy.
1/28/2023 FIRST QUARTER IN TAURUS: Your safety depends on the need for stability, which is not easy to satisfy now. You have to learn to accept change as part of your life. The basic problem is finding your own self-respect in order to ensure that you do not mistakenly seek it in material things. When you accept yourself for who you are, it will become easier for you to find peace and tranquility in the outside world.
