Fenrir, also called Fenrisulfr, wolf spirit of Norse mythology was the son of the god Loki and a giantess, Angerboda.
With the wolf as your spirit guide you can expect relevance to guardianship, ritual, loyalty, and spirit. The Wolf Spirit has the ability to make speedy and long lasting emotional attachments, and often has to trust their own instincts. So our Wolf Spirit Guide teaches us to do the same, to trust our hearts and minds, and have control over our own lives.
In readings the wolf often comes reversed, the meaning of which you will begin to understand as you read on. The wolf is one of the most common animal spirit guides, known for their strength and power, they are often feared by people who do not fulling understand their meaning; that having a Wolf Spirit as a power animal or totem serves to emphasize trust or mistrust in your instincts and intuition. The wolf will often come to guide us when things are not going well in these areas.
The Sioux called the wolf ‘shunk manitu tanka’ meaning ‘animal that looks like a dog’ but is a powerful spirit and one you should welcome as your strongest spirit animal guide.
Reversed Meanings: confessing, turning over new leaf, slander, no backbone, dangerously two-faced, being outsmarted, con artist, malicious, blackmail, running away from consequences, ignoring warnings, coward, getting caught, conscience kicking in, serial cheat, unworkable strategy, stealing credit, helpful, coming clean, advice, counsel, pathological liar
The Wolf reversed reminds us that ‘crime doesn’t pay,’ without exception. If you get this card and you are tempted to cheat or take shortcuts in some way, this card gives a clear statement that you are going to get caught – simple as that. Think twice. And if you have found that someone in your life is cheating you, by no means can you simply let it go. They must be called to account, if you are to keep this relationship. This does not mean you should assume that someone is cheating; this only applies if you know for a fact that they are.
