Matt "Twig" was asked to pull a card for Largess Forestry in 2017. The card he pulled was Wolf. Today also happens to be the Full Wolf Moon!
To native people, Wolf is known to be the teacher and the pathfinder, the forerunner of new ideas who returns to the clan to teach and share medicine. The wolf has keen senses and the moon is its power ally. The moon is the symbol for psychic energy, or the unconscious that holds the secrets of knowledge and wisdom. Howling at the moon may be an indication of Wolf's desire to connect with new ideas which are just below the surface of consciousness. Wolf medicine empowers the teacher within us all to come forth and the children of the earth in understanding the Great Mystery of life.
This is a great sign for Largess Forestry, as we strive to strengthen our efforts to be educators of the natural world, from clients backyards to old-growth forests. With the wolf as our inspiration, we move forward in this new year, carving creative new pathways as Voices of the Forest.
