Overview of the Wolf Totem in the Native American Zodiac
The Wolf is all about spiritual illumination. You are represented by the Wolf totem if you were born between February 19 and March 20 in the northern hemisphere.

In the Western zodiac sign, this totem is represented by Virgo in the south and Pisces in the northern hemisphere.
For the Wolf totem, one of the greatest challenges is becoming practical. Sometimes, the Wolf can be a bit impractical when they try to help other people. Despite the Wolf's reputation for being fierce, the Wolf totem is known for being a little timid. Unfortunately, the Wolf must be wary because other people can take advantage of this timid nature.
The Wolf is Native American astrological sign that is all about connecting to your higher self. If you are a Wolf, then you naturally have an intuitive sense for situations. Many Wolves are seers, mediums, psychics or clairvoyants. When you actively work to connect to your higher self and the divine, you enhance this natural gift and intuition. You are able to learn more about the mysteries of the world and tune into the insights within every day life.
Because of this tendency though, it is easy for the Wolf to feel disconnected. You have a deeply spiritual nature, which can make the material world seem odd or uncomfortable. This can make you disconnected from the world around you, and it makes it especially hard to view the darker side of human nature. While it may pain you to realize the darkness in humanity, the Wolf's communal attitude, kindness and spirituality are necessary for the modern world. Compassion seems to go wherever the Wolf goes, and your compassion can inspire everyone around you.
