Whispers of Wolf Dreams

As you dream in the shadow of the city lights….

To see a wolf in your dream symbolises survival, beauty, solitude, mystery self-confidence and pride. You can keep your composure in a variety of social circumstances and blend into any situation with ease and grace. You are a loner by choice.

Negatively the wolf represents hostility, aggression, or sneakiness. It may reflect an uncontrollable situation or an all-consuming force in your life. This could point to an obsession, an addiction or something that is beyond your control.

To see a white wolf in your dream signifies valour and victory. You can see the light even in your darkest hours. To see a black wolf in your dream represents your shadow.

There are characteristics of the wolf that you are refusing to acknowledge or incorporate into yourself.

 

 

 

 

 

To dream that you kill a wolf indicates betrayal. Certain secrets will be revealed to you. If you are being chased by a wolf in your dream, then it implies that you are unwilling to confront a problem that has been negatively impacting your life. Instead you are running away from it. To hear a wolf howling in  your dream represents a cry for help from somebody in your waking life. (Reference: F.BK – Source Unknown)

Howling New Moonshine….

Spirit of the FireWolves…

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Howling new moonshine tumbling and stealing across the contrasting volcanic world of Io’s Fire wolves. Half hidden in the new moon shadows they gathered in moon dark silhouettes amongst the volcanic mountain ranges, calling the song of the stars, drawing on the fiery heart of the pack to call home the Fire wolves of Io, adorned in the mighty colours of the volcanic fire breed. The “Watcher at the Window” gazed in alluring fascination at the mountains peaks of Io bejewelled in the spectacular rainbow arrays of black and gold, catching too the starlight dancing in the gold-fire eyes of the Fire wolves of Io, bathed in the new moon darkness gliding around craters and dark plains.

For it is the song of the wild

That has been sung through the ages

Inexorable – Stealing Away the Last of the Sunlight

Monochrome Moon Wolves

 

Monochrome Moon WolvesSpacePort Eclipse Wolves

Monochrome moon wolves! A subtle, relentless shadow crept across the face of an alien sun sending a soft, fiery glow sliding across the abandoned landing unit tips where only the moon wolves resided and the wild vegetation flourished growing rapidly in the cracks and crevices of the deserted buildings, long since abandoned by their alien civilizations. The abandoned shuttle port and its overgrown, unused space crafts roamed only by the Wolves_Abandoned SpacePort glowing moon wolves sliding subtly amongst the empty shells, food in plentiful supply around the crumbling, rusted hulls and skeleton cruisers.

 

 

Inexorably the eclipse light silenced them, cooling the air as the light faded into eerie, unnatural night, changing the atmosphere into something apocalyptic and alien to the moon wolves drawn back to the higher ground on the rooftop. Gradually stealing away the last of the sunlight till only the corona remained – a glowing fire burning flames and solar flares bursting across the darkened skies… The moon wolves watched with heads thrown high to the solar winds as darkness descended and the world feel silent. The eerie howl of the wolf song echoed on… and on through the monochrome eclipse light.

Taking the Battle to Islamic State–Message to IS Terrorists   14 comments

Message to Islamic State_Image Credit: FacebookMessage to All Islamic State Terrorists!!

“To all the Islamic State jihadist, self-titled “lions”… from all the “She-Wolves” of the world whom you seek to subdue and control, and whom you see as the “spoils of war” to be abused and violated to your own vile and disgusting ends…

Never underestimate the “She-Wolves” of this world… Our rights to equality and freedom have been long fought for and died for. We are stronger than you think and we will never give in, and we will never give up.

The “She-Wolves” will never bow to the “lions” and the “She-Wolves” will not be afraid to take the battle to the “lions” whenever and wherever the need arises. We will fight you to the bitter end, for the “She-Wolves” to submit to the “lions” will never be an option.

My growl is warning heed it well!!!

Europa’s Icewolf – Alpha Female of the Europa Pack.”

For the strength of the wolf is the pack….and the strength of the Pack is the wolf.

The “She-Wolves” Taking The Battle To Islamic State (IS)

IS has met its match! It is facing its worst nightmare! The female of the species!!

Woman and Wolves (Image: Europa's Icewolf) Image credit: Google images

Hundreds of young Kurdish women have volunteered to leave homes and families and sadly in some cases, abusive marriages and other problems, to become tough, trained soldiers, led by Abdullah Ocalan who unusually had for a long time championed equality for women.

These young female soldiers are putting their lives on the line to “take the battle to the Islamic State of Iraq and Greater Syria,” determined that women’s rights will not be brutally restricted and snatched away from them by these vile, cruel terrorists.

The wild nature belongs to such a woman, it is the essence of her soul, the consciousness of her heart and spirit, the ambient voice of her dreams and aspirations, the compassion of her words of empathy and the song of her humanitarianism. It is the passion that drives her to establish her territory and to seek out and create her pack, and to nurture.

Image Credit: NEWSHA TAVAKOLIANImage Credit: NEWSHA TAVAKOLIANThe Women’s Protection Unit, (YPJ) links to the Kurdistan Worker’s Party (PKK), a Kurdish nationalist movement -–who like other Kurdish groups battling IS have also been fighting an ongoing battle against Turkey for independence.

IS will be facing off against female fighters. When 18 year old Zilan Orkesh who joined YPJ – in 2011, killed her first IS jihadist, eager to taunt the other IS fighters she cheered and shouted as loud as she could in the hope they would hear her, “I wanted to let them know that their worst nightmare had come true, their friend had been killed by a woman.”

Training half hour from the front line at a free Syrian military camp they are also driven by an all-consuming, single minded desire not only to take up arms against IS but also to free themselves of the inequality in Middle Eastern society that strips women of so many of the rights enjoyed by the men.

She will never give in or give up... (Image Credit: Goog;e images)

Image Credit: NEWSHA TAVAKOLIANThe wild nature gives a woman the strength to stand, and to roar like a lion in the face of injustice, wielding the sword of spirit and infinite determination against all the odds, refusing to fall at the feet of her tormenters, rising against the storm pitted against her in the sure and certain knowledge she will never give in or give up.

“In the pastwomen had various roles in the society, but all those roles were taken from them. WEdit7e are here now to take back the role of women in society” – 18 year old Saria Zilan.

“We live in a world where women are dominated by men. We are here to take control of our future. I injured an IS jihadi in Kobani. When he was wounded all his friends left him behind and ran away. Later I went there and buried his body. I now feel that I am very powerful and can defend my home, my friends, my country, and myself. Many of us have been martyred and I see no path other than the continuation of their path.” – 18 year old YPJ fighter Torin Khairegi

“Where I am now men and women are equal and we all have the same thought, which is fighting for our ideology and the rights of women. My three sisters and I are all in YPJ” – 20 year old YPJ fighter Aijan Dents from Amuda, Syria

 

 

 

 

“The war influenced me a lot. Before joining YPJ, whenever I asked my family about politics and they’d just say ‘that’s not your business you’re just a girl’, But when I saw how the women of YPJ gave their lives for what they believed in I knew that I wanted to be one of them.” – 16 year old YPJ fighter Barkhodan Kochar from Darbesi, Syria

“When my mother told Cicek ‘Please stay with your mother’ she answered, ‘I left to fight for all the mothers of the world. I cannot stay here.” Rojin the sister of YPJ fighter Cicek Derek who died age 17 years, fighting in Kobani Syria

“I fought IS in Jezza and Serikani. Women of YPJ are not scared of IS.” – 20 year old YPJ fighter Beritan Khabat from Derek, Syria who joined YPJ to protect her land of birth and put an end to the suppression of women.

Such a woman is an instinctive creature,

who refuses to bow to shame, who uses her feminine wile and wits

to lead all in her charge

through danger to safety

Wild nature...She who refuses to bow to shame (Image:Europa's Icewolf)

She is a woman of power,

Of a nature that sets her apart from her contemporaires.

She is, through the wild nature,

The She-Wolf!

Full Wolf Moon–January 5th 2015   21 comments

119453360_640Full Wolf Moon Registration Banner

The Wolf Moon rising at 17:15 – 5th January 2015, for the one and only time this New year, is the first full moon following the winter solstice. In a little touch of moon wolf magic the 2015 Wolf Moon also coincides with the arrival of Earth at the closest point to the sun that it is possible for it to reach in its orbit (perihelion).

Earth stands just 91.4 million miles from the sun, at this point and consequently the full moon burns brighter than even the Europan Ice Wolves on their frozen world of ice…

The Wolf Moon has also come to mark the start of a long year of stargazing.

January is the only month of the year when Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter and Saturn can be viewed without a telescope. And if you look very carefully in the magic of the moonlight and maybe wish upon a star you may see the flash of the moon wolves of icy Europa…moon of Jupiter….if you’re really quiet you may here the call of the wolf-song across the star-ways of time and space…the moon-song of the star-born of Europa….

Happy New Year 2015 from the Ice-wolves of Europa!

Ultimate Wolfie Herr Selfies!   46 comments

Hazardous Days Of

Wolfie Herr Selfie Creations! Smile

“Freaked-out, Shock-Horror Wolfie Herr Selfie,” Life can be very Herr-y (Hairy) at times…The taking of a top-quality, prize winning  Wolfie Herr Selfie can be a truly herr-raising and frankly quite terrifying experience…. It frequently leads to the likes of the “Freaked-out, Shock-Horror Wolfie Herr Selfie,” is entirely the fault of the camera, and is totally impossible to correct with even the most sophisticated photo-editing software available Smile

“Underexposed, Green-eyed monster Wolfie Herr Selfie”On many inexplicable occasions there is no accounting for the behaviour of the camera’s wide variety of Exposure modes. The “Underexposed, Green-eyed monster Wolfie Herr Selfie” has become an increasingly common problem, particularly for DSLR camera owners. That said, if you’re smart enough to get to grips with one of these mind-blowingiy complex contraptions then you really ought to be smart enough to know better than to attempt a Wolfie Herr Selfie in the first place Winking smile

 “Herr Dryer-Distortion Extrordinaire Wolfie Herr Selfie,”It’s also very well advised to switch off the hair dryer during the Wolfie Herr Selfie taking session…Drying your hair with one hand whilst taking a Wolfie Herr Selfie just doesn’t work… All too often it leads to the “Herr Dryer-Distortion Extraordinaire Wolfie Herr Selfie,” and nobody really wants to be sporting the “Dragged through a hedge backwards” (UK saying for the benefit of the US and European viewers) look Smile

“Herr Wolfie Through the Looking Glass Wolfie Herr Selfie.” When attempting to take a semi-respectable Wolfie Herr Selfie it is generally best not to try taking it through a Europan Ice berg….it really isn’t a good look…and neither is the resulting “Tufty-eared, Sphereised Wolfie Herr Selfie…” just because you have a fancy camera sporting a massive, over-sized zoom lens doesn’t mean you have to let the camera create a “Herr Wolfie Through the Looking Glass Wolfie Herr Selfie.” Open-mouthed smile (Remember it’s always the fault of the camera when things go wrong; which of course they do – frequently… !)

“3-D Squashed-In Nose Wolfie Herr Selfie”How wrong a Wolfie Herr Selfie can go is, to a point, a matter of dubious personal opinion. For example some Selfie-takers may, questionably, be seriously impressed by their camera’s previously unknown ability to take Wolfie Herr Selfies in 3-D… The “3-D Squashed-In Nose Wolfie Herr Selfie” certainly has some unique qualities all of its own. Naturally this is on the equally questionable assumption that you haven’t in fact created a 3-D printed Icewolf on the quiet, on your very own, very secret 3-D Wolfie Printing machine….

“Solarised, Black Wolf of Mars Wolfie Herr Selfie”Even then things can still go a little “pear-shaped” (“horribly wrong” for those of European and US leanings 😉 ) Of course if you like the “Solarised, Black Wolf of Mars Wolfie Herr Selfie” look then you may well be thrilled and highly impressed by the above Wolfie Herr Selfie… otherwise you may find yourself glaring furiously into the camera lens wondering disconcertedly how, exactly, the Selfie Camera or possibly your 3-D Wolfie Printer, yet again took matters into its own settings, hands, paws… whatever!!!

“Snowy Sumi Super Wolfie Herr Selfie”Ultimately it’s probably best advised to give up on technology altogether when it comes to creating an effective Wolfie Herr Selfie…For those gifted characters blessed with the ability to exercise artistic creativity with paints and brushes a very pretty “Snowy Sumi Super Wolfie Herr Selfie” is an excellent look to aim for… and will show-case your enviable talents perfectly Smile

 “Ripply Icy Wolfie Herr Selfie” But for those who aspire only to the highly technical Wolfie Herr Selfie Camera or the 3-D Wolfie Printer, both of which, as everybody knows, have infuriating minds of their own and do whatsoever they please to a Wolfie Herr Selfie, exactly when they please, there is only one option left open when all else fails…Pot luck!!

Very, very occasionally, usually at the time of Full Moon when the skies are clear and a certain Full Moon madness is reigning, a lovely, “Ripply Icy Wolfie Herr Selfie” can occur, embracing the soft blending of moonlight over snow on the Ice-world of Europa, where the voice of the alien Icewolves howls the haunting song of the stars, echoing timelessly across the planetscape of their frozen world of Ice.
