What a fantastic card, yet it also warns us not to be know-it-alls or to decide we don’t need to learn something. If the Universe is presenting the lesson to you, it is probably for good reason.

Also, I decided to share a little deck-clearing tip I picked up from author and teacher Caitlin Matthews. When your deck seems stuck in a pattern of particular cards, or just doesn’t seem to be drawing right, it may be time to “clear” your deck of patterns. To do this, simply sort the cards into 7 even piles (for smaller oracle decks, I sometimes use 5 piles) just as if you were dealing them to seven players.

Next, stack the cards together into one stack, going in the order that you put the cards on their stacks (left to right, clockwise, etc.)

Now, give your cards a good shuffle and see how your card draws go! This is also a handy way to shuffle those extra large oracle cards.

Wolf Spirit – Turn Knowledge into Wisdom

Message: Wolf Spirit leads you deep into the enchanted forest that holds the secrets of your life. Can you sense her beckoning you to follow, asking you to take all you have learned and all you are learning and make it yours? Can you integrate it all into your body, mind, and spirit? Whatever lessons you learned along the way, do not leave them unexamined. Be loyal to your dreams, to your soul, and to turning knowledge into wisdom and experience into magic. You are the one you have been waiting for. Be still and know that the sound of your heart beats in harmony with the whole world. The appearance of Wolf Spirit is an auspicious omen that says you are truly in alignment with your destiny.

Protection Message: What is unknown is still yet to be discovered. When Wolf Spirit appears, you are being told not to pretend you know something when you don’t. You won’t impress anyone with a little bit of knowledge. In fact, you rob yourself of a true experience and education if you tell yourself you are done learning or you don’t have to know something. Be open, be humble, be teachable, and the world will open itself up for you like magic. Now is the time to look into the world with reverence and awe and an insatiable curiosity. You will never grow old if you are willing to keep learning. Wolf Spirit is waiting to be your mystical, loving guide.
