Falcon Totem (Red Tailed Hawk)
Falcon & Red Tailed Hawk Birth Totem Overview
Some Native American, Shamanic, & Medicine Wheel Astrologers use a Red Tailed Hawk for this totem.
If you were born during the dates of March 21 – April 19th in the Northern Hemisphere or September 23 – October 22 in the Southern Atmosphere your Native American Zodiac Sign is the dignified Falcon (Red Tailed Hawk).
To put this in context of Western Astrology you’d be a Aries (north) or Libra (south). This is an interesting contrast because Aries have tons of energy while Libras tend to meter things.
Falcon people have an amazing aptitude to ferret out new paths and patterns. They use that keen eyesight so that when the right direction shows itself they swoop in before others have a chance of grabbing that prize.
One thing that’s really important to Falcons is being true to self and becoming wholly self-aware.
Without that its difficult to achieve the leadership roles that Falcon seeks out so earnestly. The awakened Falcon spirit, however, is a true trail blazer, using wisdom for wings.
With Falcon in your chart you have a nearly fearless approach toward what others consider ground breaking and revolution. Falcon can really get its feathers fluffed when people can’t appreciate that vision.
This is a point where Falcon must remain sensitive to the differences between Native American Zodiac signs and respect those differences, seeing their potential rather than being impatient.
As a Falcon soul, you have a rich history – literally. Falcons were typically only owned by the rich and powerful who respected them for help in hunting.
Your speed amazes people, and you’ll never be considered clumsy thanks to precision and those keen eyes of yours.
If you trust in your medicine you will spread your wings and fly into the role of an honest visionary and bring other people to higher awareness.
Falcon & Red Tailed Hawk Traits, Personality and Characteristics
Native American Zodiac Signs have various natural correspondences each of which gives you a new dimension for pondering the ways in which Falcon challenges you, motivates you and guides you on life’s journey.
Falcon belongs to the East wind and the Cardinal direction of East. It’s not surprising that Falcon also falls under the season of spring. These three correspondences combine together for a powerful sense of freshness and renewal.
This liberation can make you a person who has no intention of being tied down or tamed.
Additionally as the sun comes over the horizon – Falcon becomes energized by the Element of Fire. This is one reason why Lightworkers and Shamans consider Falcon people as having great potential for true seeing and clairvoyance.
The Fire in this Native American Zodiac sign also gives you tons of gusto (hey, go for it).
The only problem is that those spontaneous flights sometimes get too close to the sun because the Falcon wants to act NOW. When your strong will prompts playing with fire, sometimes you’ll get burned.
During the entire month of the Falcon you’ll find that your pet projects go more smoothly. You will likely feel even more dynamic and self-assured than ever, absorbing the reawakening energy of the Earth.
This is also the time when your profound vision can find a solution to a stubborn problem because you can rise above it and get a different outlook.
The Native American Zodiac tells us that this sign comes under the influence of the Falcon Clan. Like Salmon and Owl, the element of Fire influences this stalwart group, all of whom seem uniquely capable of having great outlooks when everyone else is groaning. Even with all those feathers, you still have a ton of “pluck”.
The stone and flower for Falcon people are the Opal and Dandelion, respectively.
All the bright, shining colors of the Opal represent the hopefulness of Falcon’s heart. Wearing an Opal helps Falcon people with over-wrought emotions and difficult transitions.
Dandelion symbolizes the sunny disposition and overall brightness of Falcon souls. It is a plant of wishes, and like the child blowing on seeds the Falcon people in your life support dreams and send your wishes to the winds for manifestation.
Falcon & Red Tailed Hawk Totem Love Compatibility
The fire in this Native American Zodiac sign makes them passionate lovers who need a partner with real spark and dazzle.
As a Falcon you do not want the hard-to-get lover, but rather someone who embraces sexuality honestly, joyfully and faithfully. You’d do well to seek out a mate born under Deer or Otter.
Falcon & Red Tailed Hawk Totem Animal Career Path
A key personality trait for those with Falcon as a birth sign is raw ambition.
Action plans come naturally…. No poo pooing around for this bird. You need a job environment that’s upbeat and energizing.
The word routine doesn’t even come into consideration. The harder or more complex the career, the happier you’ll be. And you’re not afraid to take initiative and motivate with straight forward words and actions. As a result you’ll likely never really want for money, but you have to be careful of a tendency toward being a spendthrift.
