Dogs can represent the idea of unconditional love. The wolf has more of an association with roaming and freedom. Dreaming of a wolf can represent how you are exploring relationships and the idea of unconditional love that can be best expressed when integrated with the idea of freedom. The werewolf can be viewed as a Shadow archetype, representing issues that are unprocessed. It howls as a symbol of instinctual urges, while the moon activates a type of transformation that makes it a hybrid. Being half human and animal can suggest the need to express instinctual urges that are somewhat conflicted. The moon also has associations with the mother, and can signify unrepressed emotions related to mothering. This character combines the idea of unrepressed desires and how they eventually overwhelm your need for control to find expression. See Wolf, Animals and Shadow.
