Beaver Birth Totem Overview
The term “eager Beaver” could not be more spot on for those born under this Native American Zodiac Sign. Beaver people are masters of strategy and have a work ethic that would put a Type A personality to shame.
Do not consider engaging Beaver in a contest of mental acuity as this a Fool’s errand.
You might at first be fooled by the generous and supportive appearance of this Native American Zodiac sign, nonetheless Beavers are not exactly tactful. (Chew hard on that foot, Beaver person – your words can come across as arduous and put off potential allies.)
Astrologically speaking, the key struggle for Beaver people is that while highly adept, they also have insecure tendencies that may cause them to intensely retreat into work, ignoring all else.
Or they might seek safety in the “wooden hut” they build around their hearts. On this turn of the Medicine Wheel, Beaver’s task is gnawing down into the center of self and releasing the fears that hold them back. Once done, the heavy wooden wall built as a protective barrier can be pushed aside so people can come in.
In nature, Beaver transforms both landscapes and waterscapes through their industrious gathering of wood. Here we have earth and water offering Beaver a chance to remove the old and outmoded in favor of something new, something that provides long term security without the unyielding ties to old burdens.
Beaver Traits, Personality and Characteristics
Those born under the sign of Beaver are highly connected to the East Wind, the Cardinal Direction of East-Southeast and the Element of Earth. The East wind continues to inspire while the Earth provides solid foundations.
Thus, we move into the time of year where the threat of frost is over, and it’s time to sow seeds, including in our own souls.
This Native American animal sign knows this is a time to create, work, and shore up their foundations inside and out. Beavers will carry out this goal with precision and methodology that resonates in their very DNA. In Beaver’s world, the greatest proverbial sin is wasting time and effort.
Family is a keynote to Beaver – the work they do is for the betterment of their kin and for the stability the dam offers.
The Native Americans tell us that Beaver is also a healer with great wisdom. This, along with a sweet charm, endears Beaver to many others – so long as those people don’t disrupt Beavers’ routine.
The hard part about being the ever-diligent Beaver is that sometimes their focus comes off as being overly possessive and rigid.
With the season of planting tied to their birth date, Beaver knows a new cycle has taken root. This is an excellent time to ponder one’s own roots and personal qualities.
Beaver people belong to the Turtle Clan, which also has strong Earth Element ties. This clan illustrates the Beaver’s natural desire for long-term security and safety, as well as their passion for family.
The stone for Beaver is Jasper and the flower is Wild Clover. Wearing Jasper gives Beaver extra oomph in the face of challenge.
As a money stone, Jasper helps open the door for the security Beaver so desires.
Finally Jasper provides greater harmony in the Clan thanks to its ability to balance yin-yang energies.
Beaver Totem Love Compatibility
Beavers are very emotional to the point where they can’t actually find words to express the depth of what they’re feeling. Harmonious relationships matter greatly, and Beaver is very much a mate-for-life fellow.
The problem is that sometimes Beaver may seem possessive, but it’s because they treasure love so much.
Socially, Beaver relationships are sweet and romantic, and in the bedroom they make marvelously sensual lovers.
The best choices for partners in the Native American Zodiac are Brown Bear, Snake, Wolf, Snow Goose and Woodpecker.
Beaver Totem Animal Career Path
Unlike the Falcon, just winging it will not do for Beaver. Beavers must have order – all things have a place, and a place for everything is their motto.
They are not a ladder-climber so much as the diligent worker who doesn’t mind long hours to see a task done right.
Beavers should not seek out jobs in chaotic environments as this leads to frustration due to distractions. Give this zodiac sign a nice desk job on which they can depend and they’ll be thrilled.
Something risky? Not so much.
Accounting and other financial advisory positions suit them well.
In terms of money, Beavers are likely to carefully budget their funds and save until they can buy free-and-clear. The idea of owing people or corporations doesn’t sit well with Beaver.
Besides, because they are such successfully planners and savers, they can get what they WANT – not just the bargain basement items.
