Raven Birth Totem Overview
Raven is the Native American Zodiac sign for those born between March 21-April 19 (Southern hemisphere) and September 23-October 22 (Northern hemisphere).
In Western Zodiac Signs, this birth totem corresponds to the signs of Aries and Libra, respectively. This Western partnering is one that gives whole new meaning to the phrase, “opposites attract.”

Ever cawing with tact, Raven is the diplomat of the Zodiac. They have a positive outlook on life that’s contagious, along with a ceaseless quest for harmony.
The main challenge for Raven is trusting in their decisions.
While they seem to be naïve toward others, they are likewise idealistic and curious to a fault. Beware of “pretty shiny items” – things are not always as they appear.
Ravens spend a good amount of time trying to find the right partner. Sometimes, however, they obsess and miss other opportunities both in relationships and situations.
Certain necessities may also go by the way side until the situation becomes so blatant that Raven simply can’t ignore it any further.
The Native American Zodiac depicts Raven as preferring the company of other Ravens.
They do not do well going solo, and continually seek out a Murder (group of Ravens) with which to “hang out”.
Raven totem people love making others happy but may forget to feed the inner-self and strengthen that same happiness.
Once Raven matures enough to give themselves time, he/she will uncover all manner of personal aptitudes that can now shine through to the surface.
