A Wolf is a symbol of the Earth. It can represent evil; fierceness; cruelty, devouring, craftiness.

In shamanic tradition Wolf is the teacher. Wolf is the pathfinder, the forerunner of new ideas who returns to the clan to teach and share. As wolves take one partner for life, they are also a symbol of loyalty and of family. Wolf is also connected to the Dog Star Sirius, which according to Legend was the original home of mankind's teachers in ancient times.

In astronomy, the term Wolf is also used for types of stars. Relevant in this context are Wolf 424 (Iummo / Ummo), and Wolf 359 (situated in the Leo constellation, near Regulus. See 'Regulus' for more information).
