November 23 – December 21

Long Nights Time

微笑棋牌现金版下载Those represented by the Owl totem animal are born during the “Long Nights Time,” between November 23 and December 21. This is a time for stillness and deep contemplation, as the joyous distractions that come with sunlight and warmth have faded with the season. What better animal to represent this introspective time than the owl - silently observing the darkened world as it sleeps.

The Owl Birth Totem Animal

As Owls are believed to be the “Guardians of the Underworld,” they are good at embracing their personal darknesses, spotting deception, and keeping secrets. Intuitive and perceptive, Owls love the acquisition of knowledge and bringing mysteries out of the dark. They place a high value on integrity and ingenuity.

微笑棋牌现金版下载While generally easy-going and friendly, those born under the Owl Birth Totem can also be bold and reckless due to their proclivity towards adventurous undertakings. It is important for Owls to remember the art of tact whilst dealing with others, lest they be accused of lacking compassion. Just because one speaks the truth, does not mean that it will be received positively.

Characterized by a constant need of freedom, whether real or perceived, Owls have trouble with the sensation of feeling tied down. They are very adaptable and thrive on change, and while this is advantageous in many ways, it can lend itself to trouble where solid commitments are required.

October 23 - November 22
Frost Time

Lengthening nights and winter’s first frosted breaths signify what some Native American tribes refer to as “Frost Time.” This is generally a period for solemn change as the golden fall fades into gray and people make their final preparations for the long winter ahead. Those born during this time are represented by the Snake Birth Totem. Often misunderstood, Snakes 微笑棋牌现金版下载are marvelous creatures with a rich history of legend and lore.

The Snake Birth Totem

With so many legends surrounding them, it can be hard to imagine the type of person represented by this Native American birth totem. True to form, those of the Snake Totem are inquisitive and determined, albeit a little intense. The Snake’s tendency towards secrecy and their charismatic personality will keep others coming back for more. Snakes微笑棋牌现金版下载 are ambitious creatures who regard obstacles as a way to fuel their drive for personal enhancement.

Just as the snake periodically sheds its skin, people represented by the Snake Totem Animal will periodically undergo major life transformations. Sometimes these transformations are rather extreme, affecting friends, family and general onlookers with the wake that such changes can evoke. While the feeling of new situations and experiences enthralls Snakes, it is important they do not completely alienate their old companions in the process, or they will find themselves unable to maintain long-lasting relationships.

September 22nd-October 22nd
Falling Leaves Time

September 22 kicks off what certain Native Americans refer to as the “falling leaves time,” represented by the Raven Birth Totem. When someone first learns that his or her birth totem is the raven, there is oftentimes a look of disappointment. Everyone wants to be a wolf or a bear, or some other powerful predatory animal, not a bird whose beady eyes light up at the sight of a squashed raccoon. We get it, but every creature has its seemingly bizarre tendencies, and we’re here to show you the beautiful side of ravens.

The Raven Birth Totem

Those born between September 22 and October 22 are represented by the Raven Native American Totem Animal. Ravens are friendly and sociable and greatly enjoy being a part of a group. Despite their talkativeness, Ravens are very discreet and are therefore able to keep secrets well. The ability to maintain an objective mindset allows the Raven to see all sides of an issue, making them great mediators. It is this ability, however, that can cause hesitancy in decision making, as Ravens strive to be fair at all times. While those of the Raven Totem are generally cheerful and upbeat sorts, an atmosphere of disorder or confusion may send the Raven spiraling into moodiness. So long as you are clear in expressing your point, you will find the Raven an exciting friend and partner. As you can see, the Raven is not to be scoffed at. They are magical, smart and loving, they have been with us since the beginning, and they may just know a thing or two that we don’t.

August22 - September 21
Harvesting Time

The dates of August 22 to September 21 bring an end to summer and begin to usher in the beginnings of autumn, a season that the Native Americans call “Harvesting Time”. Those born during this period fall under the Bear Birth Totem微笑棋牌现金版下载, a symbol of independence, practicality and good workmanship.

The Bear Birth Totem

Though independent, Bears work best with routines and oftentimes resist change. Practical, with an eye for detail, those born under this sign make great workers, though they are humble almost to a fault. Their hard work and good ideas may go unnoticed if they do not learn to praise themselves occasionally.

Bears’ fondness for familiarity makes them loyal partners and friends, though they may come across as cold and aloof to some. This is only because their independence makes Bears slow to show their emotions, not because of a lack of feelings.
