Dreaming of wolves often signifies that you have a loyalty to those closest to you.
If the dream was at home, and the wolves were outside, then it could mean the loyalty you have towards your parents/grandparents/brothers/sisters.
If the wolves were approaching to attack and you were able to keep the them out, then it shows that you stand by your loved ones even in the most extreme of circumstances. If you were unable to protect your family, then you may need to fight harder to look after them in your waking hours.
A pack of wolves might also refer to your family unit- is it strong right now or does it need some attention? However, a pack might also be linked to a group of people who are trying to intimidate you. If you can see them coming, then you might be better prepared- so be careful who you trust.
It is not surprising that many people see themselves as a child again when there are wolves in their dreamscape. Due to stories such as Little Red Riding Hood- children have may have come to fear wolves, perhaps more than adults. The dream could be urging you to let go of childhood fears that might be stopping you from moving forward.
Wolves are thought to represent camouflage- perhaps you are able to blend into any situation with ease- maybe to the point of being invisible. Do you need to find a way to stand out from the crowd and show people your true colours?
A wolf about to attack suggests that you are in a place where you feel you can’t win. Perhaps you have an addiction, are in an unhealthy relationship or in a situation you think you have no control over. If the wolf was howling- this could be your dream telling you to ask for help.
On the flipside, the howl could be someone close to you who is crying for help. Consider who was in the dream with you to give you extra clarity.
