Meanings and Messages: survival instincts, resourceful, loyalty, independent
To best understand the Jackal totem it is helpful to study the combined meaning of wolves
, 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.
