The last card of the Wildwood Tarot deck is the king of material world: The King of Stones (pentacles) - Wolf. This wolf is confident and he knows his strength and the responsibility which comes with his position. His strength and character have put him there. He advises us to mark our territory, knowing and respecting and defending our boundaries and to protect our pack. He also knows it is important to stay strong for the same reasons: He takes the first pick of the food. No putting yourself last for this guy.
There are also wolves who live alone by choice or by necessity.
I am still the leader of my pack (protective) but I am also in my core a lone wolf.(independent, hermit) I need time for myself alone as hard as I need breathing.
Sometimes these two wolf aspects are hard to combine but most of the time if I let my lone wolf howl at the full moon once in a while it is working out just fine. I have to remember to set boundaries for my pack as well as for myself.
