Nocturnal Totem


Meanings and Messages: survival instincts, resourceful, loyalty, independent


To best understand the Jackal totem it is helpful to study the combined meaning of wolves, dogs, and coyotes. Jackals are family oriented and live together in packs. Mated pairs choose monogamous relationships and are very territorial in general. The appearance of Jackal can indicate a strong desire to find a soulmate and live within a family unit. Jackals are not the best hunters, they are content to be scavengers, feeding on the leftovers of kills made by other animals. This is not a negative characteristic, but a pattern that shows resourcefulness. A person with Jackal as her totem will often take the path with the least resistance to meet their needs.
