About BEAVER Birth Totem ~ April 20 to May 20
Native American Animal Symbols ~ BEAVER Birth Totem
Take charge, adapt, overcome – this is the Beaver motto. Mostly business, the Beaver is gets the job at hand done with maximum efficiency and aplomb. Strategic, and cunning the Beaver is a force to be reckoned with in matters of business and combat. One might also think twice about engaging the Beaver in a match of wits – as his/her mental acuity is razor sharp. The Beaver has everything going for him/her – however tendencies toward "my way or the highway" get them in trouble. Yes, they are usually right, but the bearer of this Native American animal symbol may need to work on tact. In a nurturing environment the Beaver can be compassionate, generous, helpful, and loyal. Left to his/her own devices the Beaver can be nervous, cowardly, possessive, arrogant, and over-demanding.
The Beaver and His Her Partner
Beaver and Falcon
Beaver is influenced by the element earth and needs security, stability, and a loving home. Taken together, these are needs that Falcon, ruled by fire, is not necessarily able to comprehend, let alone fulfill. For that reason, both need to work hard to make the relationship work, and a big spark may not be enough.
Beaver and Beaver
This combination is ideal in personal as well as business relationships. The element earth, influencing both, unites them in their need for security and stability. Beaver and Beaver can trust each other in almost all circumstances, and that's not a bad starting point for a long-lasting relationship. Only the lack of flexibility that afflicts both could at times lead to confrontations.
Beaver and Deer
The amiable Deer--whether Doe or Stag--is truly a jack-of-all-trades. Always active (especially mentally), endowed with many interests, always on the go, and looking for variety, she wants to get to know places and people. This could be a problem for the steady, earthbound Beaver, who needs a familiar rhythm in his life. But for Beaver to be more flexible won't do him any harm either.
Beaver and Woodpecker
In each other, Beaver and Woodpecker find everything they desire in a partner, because the elements earth and water, present the best promise for optimal compatibility. They will be able to find common ground where it counts most. Beaver provides stability for Woodpecker, which he requires, and Woodpecker will thank her with affection and devotion.
Beaver and Salmon
This is a relationship of opposites, which cannot easily be bridged. That's because both Salmon and Beaver are not very good when it comes to tolerance and understanding. The elements fire and earth require compromise. On the other hand, both love the good things in life, which could provide a good foundation for their relationship.
Beaver and Brown Bear
Beaver and Brown Bear are ideal partners because they share the element earth. In addition, their personalities and both their rational and emotional needs are very similar. The only danger is that all this harmony could invite occasional boredom. But this is a small risk because Beaver and Brown Bear usually choose to be actively engaged in matters that interest both.
Beaver and Raven
Raven is not unsympathetic to Beaver since Raven, thanks to his quick and agreeable nature, has no difficulty accommodating the needs of Beaver. This, however, does not mean that an understanding on a deeper level is reached automatically, since earth and air need time to become familiar with each other and time to build trust.
Beaver and Serpent
Without a doubt, tension is given in this relationship, which could also make a certain attraction between the two. But it could also prove to be very taxing. While earth and water compliment each other,the personality traits as well as interests of Beaver and Serpent are very different. This often makes people vacillate between extremes and, indeed, between love and hate.
Beaver and Owl
Without question, Owls are very interesting and attractive. However, it is not always possible for the earthbound Beaver to be comfortable with the high ideals and expectations of Owl. The many contraditions likely to be part of this relationship have the potential to prevent it from becoming a fulfilling one. Good intensions alone may not be enough.
Beaver and Goose
Goose, like Beaver, is influenced by the element earth and for that reason alone a satisfying and harmonious relationship is almost guaranteed. They will understand each other immediately. No wonder: both have very similar personalities. Since both Goose and Beaver agree on the material things in life and are successful in pursuing and acquiring them, this combination is also interesting and lucrative in professional and business endeavors. They also agree on other substantive matters.
Beaver and Otter
Beaver stands with both feet solidly on the ground while Otter, who is usually full of fun, lives in more lofty spheres. It goes with out saying that in this relationship many diffculties need to be overcome. Both Beaver and Otter must work on the relationship. But there is a chance that over time the differences may even serve as an inspiration for both.
Beaver and Wolf
Beaver will warm up to Wolf in a hurry! And no wonder--Wolf, influenced by the element water, is sensitive and compassionate. She not only knows the desires of Beaver but also how to fulfill them. Wolf will waste few words; one look and she knows. However, Beaver should never become possessive, trying to keep Wolf all to himself.
