I remember reading somewhere on the internet (heaven knows where, it was years ago) that each major country or empire has a constellation above it. The U.S. has Aquila -the Eagle; Russia has Ursa -the Bear; The U.K. has Leo -the Lion, etc. So maybe "Wolf" represents Rome?

I think so. Like I said, I read it on the internet...
And what's presented on the internet and what's real aren't exactly the same thing
One of these days I'm going to own a star globe... (sigh)
Anyway, The Snafued 1; can you tell us anything about the dream/prophecy yet? I'm dying to know!

Lithuania, an ancient country on the Baltic Sea, has great regard for the wolf. As legend would have it, in 1393 Mindaugas, the first King of Lithuania dreamt of a wolf while sleeping near a great hill. When he awoke, he believed that the wolf had told him to build a city. In response to that dream, Mindaugas built the city of Vilnius, the capital of Lithuania.
Today, Lithuanians hold the wolf to be a sacred creature. It should be pointed out that Lithuania was the last country in Europe to accept Christianity. The Lithuanians were pagans, nature worshipers. Even though, today, most Lithuanians are Roman Catholic, most Lithuanians still hold many ancient pagan beliefs. Furthermore, there has been a strong revival of Lithuania's ancient pagan practices and customs. The Romuva society is the name of the official organization of the Baltic Pagan religion. Romuva takes it's name from the ancient pagan place of worship in Prussia, one of the tribes of the Baltic people collectively known as Lithuanians.
Perhaps, like Mindaugas, your dream of a wolf might have have great importance to you in much the same way it had for King Mindaugas of Lithuania. Maybe you are being called to do great things....ever consider building a city?
