Question What does an augury/omen of a dog/wolf represent?

The other night I had a dream about getting a dog - it was very vivid and the dog looked like something husky, malamute, wolf hybrid or wolf and in the dream I named the dog, "Fate." I was wondering if anyone knows anything from shamanism, dream symbology or mythology about what the dog represents, especially a wolf dog …? Thanks in advance to anyone who has any ideas

I rather suspect the things that come to my mind, will have already crossed yours, they aren't very unusual... but here goes. The dog is revered in many cultures with varying ideas and stories, but the commonality of the archetype is faithfulness and loyalty. This is a huge contrast with the wolf, whose symbolism is ferocity, leadership, the wild (many variations too)...I think here of the Moon card in the Tarot, with wolf and dog - domestic and wild, man's beloved friend and his feared opponent symbolizing our civilized self and our primal aspects... - it seems like Fate has set you a path of reconciling two opposites, within?

My initial musings...a powerful dream for sure.

Thank you. That was an excellent interpretation… Came out almost like an intuitive reading to be honest

Wow… I just have to say that your interpretation ended up being very prophetic. This is the first time, truly, in my whole life that I've had a dream that had a meaning more than just random brain wave images - at least that I've ever been able to recognize. Amazing. Thank you, again!

Dreamwork is so amazing. Just last night I dreamed I was all alone in the jungles of Africa- I had been brought there in a jeep with several dogs and three other people - a large jeep - butthey just left me alone! I was standing in the deep jungle without shelter or arms, or any way to deal with the deep danger of the African wilderness.I found it to be a deeply meaningful experience, connecting me with the reality that as much as I love nature, in the face of her stark reality, I am helpless. It reminded me to take care that I honour the community, technology, and spiritual network that supports me. No man, nor woman, is an island.

I'm glad the dream you shared has had resonance in your personal life.I was drawn,when I read it, instinctively to the Moon card and the wolf/dog split that symbolizes our inner depths, our psyche. It's a universal struggle, after all.

Maybe so popular as to be a bit cliche, but there is wisdom here, i believe.
