Bear Birth Totem Native American Zodiac & Astrology Signs 1200x1200


The Bear birth totem is tied to the element of Earth and the cardinal direction of West. People born with this totem have manly characteristics, even among women. This provides bear with an inner strength that’s balanced with truthfulness, acceptance and sincerity.

Once a mystery unravels your next action is sharing that information, but such a gift should be balanced with caution. You don’t want to spoil a surprise or an epiphany for someone else.

Bear people are practical and discrete. You like sitting back and gathering information for future use. Bear is also a very physical person who responds to sensual input strongly. One of the challenges for the Bear totem is understanding that there is more to this world than just what we encounter on the corporal level. Your spiritual self isn’t easily categorized in the tidy filing cabinet of your mind.

If the Bear is you, your personal space is very important to you. That cave is secure and welcoming. It is a place where you can safely explore all aspects of your inner world. You go to that sacred place for quiet revitalization.

Bear is not a creature of change. What others call same-old, same-old you find comfortable and assuring. Nonetheless Bear must learn how to handle transformations otherwise he will never truly grow into fullness.

In relationships Deer people are compassionate and nurturing. Nonetheless, some disquiet lies in your soul. The best way to deter that voice is finding a focused challenge. Just know that “turning on” that focus is easier than turning it off.

Deer is a peace maker. You do not like conflict, but will participate in it when you feel you have something good to offer toward a resolution. Bringing together dissimilar people positively makes Deer very happy. Deer also does not enjoy a sense of instability and will do everything possible to restore order.

In the Native American Zodiac, Wolf totem comes under the governance of the element of water and the cardinal direction of Northeast.

Balancing that they enjoy a very intimate relationship where their partner understands this propensity and gives space when necessary.

Native American Zodiac & Astrology Overview

The Native American Zodiac & Astrology ‘system’ bears many similarities to other celestial systems of predicting our present and future.

In its simplest form, Astrology looks to the placement of the stars, moon and sun at the time of your birth as a pattern that illustrates your unique, essential being including on a spiritual level. Metaphysical practitioners use the phrase, “as above, so below” to express this principle.

We are tied to the earth and the stars, and all living things in a sacred network. Native American Astrology helps us become more aware of those connections, supports learning to trust our instincts and acts as a system for personal growth.

The ultimate intention in this astrological system is giving people a greater understanding of their overall purpose and contracts that you accepted as a spiritual being in this world.

Birth is a very real type of initiation.

From that day forward knowing what you’re here to learn makes a great difference in decision making.

This original purpose is an archetype written in our DNA and it not only affects us personally but as a collective consciousness. In other words, the Native American Zodiac is a means of claiming your responsibility in this life while preparing for the next turn on the wheel of reincarnation.

That might at first sound a little sullen but its not. Native Americans see life as a never ending wheel that each soul travels to their destiny.

As some might say, when one door closes another opens along with yet more opportunities for self-actualization. In other words folks, it truly is the journey not the destination that matters.

How much influence your Native American Zodiac Sign has in your life and how it manifests depends heavily on the phase of the moon, the new moon bringing inspiration, the waxing moon exposes emotions, the full moon is spiritually energetic and the waning moon is one of release. Each animal totem has a color affinity, an elemental association and ties to the winds!

There are more correspondences that you can explore as you read the personality & characteristics of the 12 signs.

The practice of Native American Astrology is best taken in small bites. There’s a lot to learn and many layers of insight that peel back like an onion when you give it time and attention.

Those wanting a deep understanding of Nature’s rhythms and mysteries would do well to embark on this intricate journey. It will change your relationship with self, others, the Earth and the universe itself.

Hint: consider keeping a journal for those “ah ha” moments in your studies. As you grow and learn, you’ll find the lessons you integrate from the Native American Zodiac become more profound. Trust your Spirit Animal as a cherished friend and guide in the journey.

This astrological system is very detailed. You won’t learn everything overnight – and what I’ve provided here is a rather cursory overview just to give you a sense of the whole construct. So take a deep breath and keep reading!

Native American Zodiac & Astrology vs Western Astrology

Most people are familiar with traditional Western astrology, but Native American astrology is a far cry from what you see in the daily the newspaper.

Where Solar astrology generally focus on the 12 signs of the zodiac, in this system the whole of a person’s chart is considered. Yes, the sun plays a role but so do numerous other pieces of data that provides a 3 dimensional view of our soul’s intention.

Native American systems do not elevate one sign or archetype over another. They are all important to understanding the big picture.

These archetypes of human potential come in all sizes and colors with a full range of possibilities!

Your Native American Zodiac chart is, for all intent, akin to the script of your life. This in no way, however, limits the concept of free will. Don’t worry there is plenty of room for ad-libbing.

Think of your chart like the outlines in a coloring book – you bring the crayons you wish and can even scribble outside the lines!

Native American Zodiac & Astrology origins and history

In ancient times, people depended heavily on signs and omens from the world around them including the stars.

Often it fell to a Medicine Person or Shaman to interpret these signs, as is the role of wise people, healers, magicians and walkers between the worlds (psychics, mediums, clairvoyants, etc).

The ancients paid very close attention to the sky and land, trusting in repeated patterns to tell them when to plant, harvest, travel etc. In many ways this tradition is like a modern road map and Farmer’s Almanac blended together.

The pattern of the stars had significance in Native American myths and fables, which also connected to their culture and beliefs. By extension, the Zodiac also uses those stories to illustrate deeper truths.

        Hello. According to this article, my Native American zodiac sign/birth totem is the otter. However, I feel more connected to other animals than that. According to a quiz, my spirit/power animal is the owl, but I feel more connected to wolves for some reason. Other animals appeared in my dreams, too. A tiger and a lion, though only once. Could they all be my allies? Or do I have a main or primary totem?

  2. Andy Turner says:

    What is meant by a complimentary spirit animal? After reading my Totem animal characteristics(Bear), this was listed before compatible. I had followed this site prior and took quiz on what is my spirit animal and was given wolf and butterfly. However I wasn’t sure if after reading my Totem that the wolf was representative of my that or was a complimentary spirit animal a person to which I’d have a connection.

    • Bernadette King says:

      Hi, Andy!

      The Bear totem you’re speaking of is your Native American Zodiac sign. In all Zodiac Sign systems, there are “complimentary” signs. Your complimentary sign is the same as a compatibility sign – the other Zodiac Sign(s) that are “best” for you to have relationships with (romantic or platonic). So, your Native American Zodiac sign is your totem animal by birthday. You will always have Bear traits because this is the sign you are born under.

      The Spirit Animal Quiz helps us know what animal spirit guide is present in our life “now”. For instance, maybe someone spent years as a teacher but no longer wants to teach. While they were a teacher, their Spirit Animal Guide might have been a Monkey (they are great teachers!). But, when they quit teaching maybe they decided to do charity work and now their Spirit Animal Guide is a Dove (Doves symbolize divine love and peace).

      Sure hope this helps!

      Hi, Travis;

      Apologies for the delayed reply. Will you kindly let me know what you’re trying to find? Example: Spirit, Totem, or Power Animal, Native American Zodiac Sign, etc.

  5. Debby Timm says:

    Both my Spirit Animal and my Native American Zodiac sign are the Owl. What is the significance of that I wonder?

    Also I wonder if there is any significance in a past occurrence in my life. My ex-husband was abusive to me in all forms (physically, mentally and emotionally). One night while walking to my work to come and fetch my car, he was violently attacked by an owl – his face and arms were shredded. He was no-where near the owls nest, which was in the unused bell tower of a nearby church. Two weeks later (after he tried to kill me) we parted ways and I have never looked back.

    As for MBTI, I am an INFJ – so together with my totem sign, it all makes perfect sense. People know me for my honesty, I say things as they are – and yes I have over the years been learning to be slightly more tactful, but in saying that, I do believe people should rather be hurt with the truth than deceived with lies.

      Hello, Tina;

      Though we can find our Totem Animal through astrology/zodiac signs, we can definitely have other Animal Totems as well! Know your zodiac sign is only 1 identifier. Your soul knows who you really are, who your authentic self is so always go with your instincts.

  24. Niall Platt says:

    I was born on 20th January 1999 making my birth totem an otter, correct? However, since the otter matches Aquarius star sign and I am technically a Capriquarius as I was born on the Capricorn/Aquarius cusp, does that make the snow goose a birth totem as well due to it matching up with Capricorn star signs. Does Native American astrology say anything about double/adjoining birth totems? Apologies if this is ignorant; I am very new to this side of astrology.

  25. Neil Thomson says:

    Hi there,

    I’m doing some research into the Native American Zodiac for a story I’m writing. I’m just wondering about a few things:

    And Secondly, what does the cardinal direction of an animal tell us about the animals in the Zodiac?

  30. Aurora Borealis says:

    I was thinking today “what is my totem animal?” and a bear came to mind. I have no idea why. I thought it sounded good but I had to have some more exotic animal, like a cheetah, a black panther or even a beluga whale. I googled how to determine it; the first thing was a quiz. I ended up with the coyote but, although a cool animal I’ve encountered in the wild, it didn’t sound quite right. The 2nd link was here and… my birthdate places me at bear! The sensual stuff however is completely wrong, as it is for most Virgos. But I shall be a bear from now on, rip people’s faces off and now I need to find me a cave!

    • Abdullah says:

      That is very shocking. I was wondering what is my totem animal, I thought I was a lynx. I even searched it up and it did fit me and how I act, but I did a quiz and I got a coyote, but it did not fit me so I did this and my birthdate Is august 23. So I am a bear and a Virgo, I was suprised how similar it was.

    Where are your sources? I am hesitant to trust anything on this site without them… Especially since you keep stating information about the “Medicine Wheel” being “Native American”… Which region or tribes or Nations? Not all, I promise you that. Please. Verify.

    Osyio (hello in Cherokee), my name is Justin and my birthday is March 16. I never knew where I got my LOVE for Wolves and when people all through my life had asked me were did I get my fascination with and absolute LOVE for wolves from? I just answered and I honestly don’t really know, but all I know is wolves are my ultimate #1 fave animals of all time. Then when I was able to start my family genealogy research and study, I started finding more and more information and evidence and realizing where my deep passionate LOVE for wolves comes from. Not only am I Cherokee and born on March 16, but I am from the Wolf Clan, Paint Clan and the Bear Clan, Bird Clan. I also have the same passionate LOVE for Bears and Birds.

    Hi, I’m a Capricorn and I wont tell you which hemisphere even though it;s clearly stated above, can you please waste your valuable time working for free doing charts and telling me about how ancient civilizations would have guided me so I can learn about myself without doing any work at all or even attempting to engage with myself spiritually. I just prefer when everything is GIVEN to me for nothing. Like how the white colonialist stole your country!! Also, I would like scientific papers and proof about these ancient ideas. Where are your published references!?!?
    Signed, everyone in this comments section.

  45. J Dawn Eagles says:

    Wow Natalie how unfortunate you forgot you are a spirit borrowing a suit. You are not a suit borrowing a spirit that you have to work for grinding out charts only you understand so you may charge innocent spirits a lot of money for you to tell them what they already know.
