YOUR ANIMAL BIRTH TOTEMS

I have listed here three ways of finding your birth totems.Included are the Zodiac birth signs, Chinese Zodiac birth signs and the Native American Zodiac birth signs.One type of Zodiac chart you may relate to more than another which is perfectly normal.However you might want to check out all three Zodiacís animal signs to give yourself a more rounded view.

 

 

ZODIAC BIRTH SIGN

If you don't have objects of art in your residence, etc. that represent wolves, bears, eagles, cats, dogs, unicorns or any other creature in particular, then perhaps the easiest method of acquiring a totem animal [other than being born with an animal surname] is to accept the symbol of your birth sign as your spirit helper.

 

March 21 to April 20 ~ Aries, the Ram

April 21 to May 21 ~ Taurus, the Bull

May 22 to June 21 ~ Gemini, the Dolphin

June 22 to July 22 ~ Cancer, the Crab

December 22 to January 20 ~ Capricorn, the Goat

January 21 to February 19 ~ Aquarius, the Eagle

February 20 to March 20 ~ Pisces, the Fish

 

 

THE CHINESE ZODIAC

Exponents of the Chinese Zodiac believe that the year of a person's birth is the primary factor in determining his or her personality traits, physical and mental attributes, and the degree of happiness and success attained throughout that person's lifetime. The Chinese Zodiac consists of a twelve-year cycle, each year of which is named after a different animal totem that imparts distinct characteristics to those born in a given year. If you have not yet found the totem animal that truly resonates with your inner self, perhaps you will be able to claim the animal sign of your birth year as your spirit helper. (If you were born before 1936, add twelve to the year you were born in to determine your year and sign.)

NOTE: The Chinese new year begins on February 1st of each year so if your birthday is in January then you belong to the year before, eg if you were born in January 1963 you would not be a Rabbit you would be a Tiger.
