Raven Native American Zodiac Sign Birth Totem 1200x1200

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.”

Raven, also sometimes designated as Crow, has a sensitive, romantic side.

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.

Raven Traits, Personality and Characteristics

Raven resonates with the Cardinal direction of West, the West wind and the Element of Air. Raven’s season is the Month of dead Leaves.

Native American tribes, including that of the Hopi, consider Raven a companion to the Medicine Man/Shaman who assists in spirit walks.

Raven sees beyond the here-and-now into the realms of magic, Nature Spirits and Angels. As a result, Raven people prove highly adaptable, and often find themselves seeking out Occult paths at early ages.

Raven has much potential to help others with their true vision, and are happy to offer aid as needed.

A challenge for Raven is the fact that they want to make others happily so badly they often change their stance to avoid hard feelings.

This empathy helps them tune in, but not at the expense of loosing harmony. When Ravens walks their medicine, they are the keeper of great insights, a sense of justice and balance.

The Element of Air drives Raven toward rapid mood changes and high energy levels. They want to communicate and do so very well.

Ravens are part of the Butterfly clan along with Deer and Otter. All these Native American Zodiac signs love keen minds and enjoy anything that inspires fresh ideas.

The Raven’s sacred stone is Azurite, which is perfect for walking between the worlds.

Azurite promotes psychic clarity, its energy charging through the walls of negativity and falsehood.

Carrying this stone gives Raven improved selectivity. Add to that the properties of Ivy – devotion, good fortune, and well-being and you have a paradigm for success!

Raven Totem Love Compatibility

The “R” in Raven stands for ROMANTIC!

Raven has a deep-seated desire to find that one true love.

While they search for this person, Raven will focus on preparing a space for him or her – something beautiful, yet cozy. Don’t be surprised if your Raven partner uses Feng Shui in the home.

Ravens make dependable partners provided they have a strong monogamous relationship. Such fidelity is rewarded by Raven’s on-going quixotic efforts. This includes in the bedroom where they seduce and attend with attention to little details other lovers miss.

The best Native American Zodiac signs for Raven companions are Owl, Otter, Deer, Falcon and Salmon.

Raven Totem Animal Career Path

Raven is well suited to careers that focus on justice and equity.

This birth totem knows how to talk to a wide variety of people, encouraging honest and open communication. Raven is not a loner at work. The idea of self-employment is enough to ruffle feathers.

The caution for Ravens in group work settings is that they may put down a perfectly good idea in favor of someone else’s because they want people to like them.

Raven’s symbolism is that of a messenger, so any job in communications also sets Raven up for a comfortable life with all the tasteful things of beauty they enjoy.

This doesn’t mean Raven is selfish – in fact they will gleefully share their hard earned rewards with family and various charitable groups.

    • Hello, Ruth;

      I’m unclear what you need but if you’ll tell me a bit more I’ll do my best to help!

    I thought I was Scorpio my whole life up until now. However I share similarties with owls and the Raven and the Snake. I am simply confused now.

    • Hello, Ryan;

      Scorpio’s ruling Totem Animals are the Scorpion, Snake, and Eagle. So, those are your Spirit/Totem Animals by birth date. However, since we are all connected, we all share similarities at some level. For instance, all animals have a sense of humor, compassion, and get angry. So, we will always find a little bit of our ‘self’ in each animal. But, there is always an animal or two that we are most like.

      Hope that helps!

      Stay wild,

      Hi, Michelle;

      Apologies for delayed reply. The first of the year is always an incredibly busy time for me.

      As a Raven person you must be full of magic and mirth! How wonderful! Thank you for taking the time to comment on and visit WhatIsMySpiritAnimal.com!

      Stay wild,

    Man, I was already confused about the in between of Aries’ and Pisces’ personality and characteristics. This exposes me to the ‘T’. I’ve been in a relationship with a Raven for a long while now. Things are a little more clairvoyant now, like on a spiritual level.

    This is a truly awesome site. Thank you so much for all the time and effort you out in to this site. I can see some of myself in Raven/Crow. I love to learn and continue to learn. I am a nurse and love to care for my patients. I have always been a nurturer, when my twin sister was sick (and she was often) I would take care of her especially as we became teenagers. There was never any doubt of being a nurse. I always see crows where I work, I truly believe that crows and ravens carry our spirits/souls to Heaven. I have to confess, I do have a sixth sense about things, I have seen angels, heard messengers speak to me, I can immediately get a “feel” if someone is good or bad. Never been wrong yet. But what had me confused is, when there is time of turmoil, change and death in my inner circle and not work, I constantly see Red tailed Hawks and always very close. Just today one day on tree stump and let me walk past him and watched me. I spoke to him and said “Hi pop it is good to see you” he turned and stared straight at me. I just lost my dad on a Christmas Day. So I guess my question is, is it strange that I have such a strong bond with Hawks and more characteristics of a Hawk than a Raven? I know we are all one in the end. I truly wish I could meet face to face with a Shaman and talk.

      Hello, Deirdre;

      Please accept my condolences on your family’s loss. Perhaps the Red Tailed Hawk connection during times of personal turmoil have to do with two things;

      1. Red is the color of the Base or Root Chakra. During times of turmoil, it can really help to make sure that your Root Chakra is clear and balanced. Red Tailed Hawk may visit you during these times to lend support for this Chakra during turbulent times. Visit my sister-site BuildingBeautifulSouls.com to learn all about the Base or Root Chakra: Meaning, Healing, & Meditation.

      2. In the Native American Zodiac, Red Tailed Hawk is associated with the Western Zodiac Sign of Libra – the peacemaker. Because of this association, perhaps Red Tailed Hawk appears to help support your peacemaking and nurturing efforts during tough times.

      Remember, Dierdre, healers can become energetically depleted if they do not actively engaged in self-care. Nurses are notorious for giving and giving till the well runs dry. It might seem a generalization but I come from a long line of nurses and other medical professionals so I’ve always had a ‘bird’s eye view’ of this. While you’re taking care of everyone else, who is taking care of you? Sounds like the Red Tailed Hawk presents when you need him/her most.

      Finally, Red Tailed Hawks hold their wings in a dihedral – or ‘v’ shape. The ‘v’ sign (middle and first fingers making a ‘v’) is a common peace sign. 🙂

      Hope that helps.

      Stay wild,
      PS Thank you for the kind words about WhatIsMySpiritAnimal.com! In the next week or so, I’m launching that all new version so I hope you’ll return again to see all the new information on Spirit, Totem, and Power Animals!

    I need to clarify. I meant speak to a medicine man or medicine woman. Shaman is not what they consider themselves or call themselves and is actually a different spiritual practice. However I do pray someday I have the privilege to meet a medicine man or woman but know that it is frowned upon to seek them out specifically for your own purpose especially if not part of a Native American community. I live close to the Cherokee Nation in Oklahoma. Maybe if things workout I will be able to become friendly with the Nation and meet one then. But I would never seek them out out of my selfish need.

    • Bernadette King

      Hi, Dierdre;

      I replied to your first post. On this post regarding Shaman and Medicine Men/Women – in my experience these folks have chosen to provide a service to humanity. Just as you chose to be a nurse and welcome those in need, so would a Shaman or Medicine Man/Woman. With your medical background, you might resonate with Alberto Villoldo’s Shamanic Healing teachings.

      Hope that helps.

      Stay wild,

    • Patrick

        Hi, Patrick;

        No worries! 🙂

      Hello, Patrick;

      Apology for delayed reply. I’m finding that having two hands is not enough and I’m looking into getting surgery to become an Octopus. 😉

      It sounds like what would be helpful to you and your wife is either a couple’s astrology chart reading (which I do not do) or a psychic reading (which I do!). Please visit my sister-site, BuildingBeautifulSouls.com for more details and to book psychic medium or tarot reading.

      As regards a Shamanic, Medicine Wheel, Native American Astrology compatibility chart, I’m working hard to find an astrologer who practices these types of astrology but they are tough to find. I’ll let you know what I come up with.

      Hope that helps.

      Stay wild,
