Ranting Recon: Becoming The Beast – Huginn's Heathen Hof

Ranting Recon: Becoming The Beast – Huginn's Heathen Hof: "Heathenry has always had a fascination with wolves. From ancient sagas to modern Facebook groups, the image of the wolf is ubiquitous. Among most modern Heathen groups the wolf is often seen as a symbol of strength, willpower, and fierce loyalty. However, while the wolf as a symbol might be a constant in our traditions, its meaning is not.
