Can you hear them? They’re singing their song to the Full Moon. Yes, it’s time for another Wolf’s Moon.
A common Native American myth states that in the beginning humans were like animals and animals were like humans.
South American mythologies state in the beginning people were animals but also human. Meaning the spiritual side of humans found their first homes within animal forms.
There are numerous stories from Native American tribes across North America telling of were-men, bear-men, and cougar-men and all sorts of were-creatures.
There are also stories of women giving birth to man-beasts and tribesmen taking animals as wives.
Ancient cultures throughout the world form totem clans and claimed an animal ancestor as the progenitor of their clan. Many tribes in Europe and the Americas believe their ancestors were wolves.
Recent research shows our association with wolves began over 140,000 years ago.
As time passed clans began to form beliefs that other animals were their ancestors. These other animals were respected and chosen for natural abilities. The strength of a bear, ape, the grace of a deer, swan.
**Strangely enough this month’s Full Moon is called Wolf’s Moon.**
