The origin of this moon name dates back to the presence of Native American tribes, specifically related to the Pawnee Native American Tribe. This tribe is known to be one of the most honored in North America, named after the word pa’ni, translated to mean wolf. The traditions and customs of this tribe align with the so-called wolf spirit.
Legend has it that Tirawa, the Great Spirit, placed the wolf spirit in the sky in order to watch out for the evening star. This came along with the wolf’s animal brothers: Black Bear, Mountain Lion, and Wild-Cat. These entities were said to possess power in the sky, soon known as black star, yellow star, white star and red star. These beasts supposedly sent animals like themselves to live on earth and were responsible for many of the planet’s creations. Similarly, they were believed to be responsible for sending clouds, thunder, lightning, and wind.
The wolf spirit, said to be the guardian of and possessing ancient ties to the moon, was also believed to stand as a devoted servant of the sun. Even now, it’s widely regarded that a lone wolf sings his song to the moon, hence the name of the first moon of the year, occurring in the dead of winter.
Although the origin and legend of the wolf moon may be ancient, there still stands strong symbolism today surrounding this specific moon. The animal of a wolf is said to be strategic and communicative, possessing a specific rank in their packs. Because of these characteristics, a wolf moon is said to symbolize a time to look to community for creative solutions, inspiring individuals to communicate with those around them to overcome challenges. .. 🙏🏽 ᴱˣᴬᶜᵀᴸᵞ
