The Raven and His or Her Partner

Raven and Falcon

A Raven and Falcon relationship is likely to experience some conflict. While the elements fire and air complement each other, their personalities are very differerent. Harmony can be difficult to establish because the Falcon does not do well when it is time to compromise. Here the Raven will make more concessions than he would like, and frustration is likely.

Raven and Beaver

In the beginning, these two people won't have much in common. It might take a while for them to like each other. The Raven, influenced by the element fire, needs diversion, stimulation, and variety in his life, while Beaver is more inner-directed and loves domestic life.

Raven and Deer

The element air is a good foundation for this combination. It both unites and heightens their relationship. Both signs take great joy in intellectual and social activities. Good communication and intense discourse is very important. While this relationship will not suffer from boredom, a calendar filled with too many different activities could be a source of stress. But--so what? Both Raven and Deer love it and feel connected because of it.

Raven and Woodpecker

It has been said that opposites attract, and this folk wisdom describes this relationship perfectly. But will raven and Woodpecker get along? Not immediately. With goodwill and with time, a harmonious relationship can be established. However, this relationship will be made up of a lot of compromises.

Raven and Salmon

Raven and Salmon can have a promising relationship because the elements fire and air usually go well together. Raven can lean on the strong Salmon (if Salmon allows him) and, in turn Salmon enjoys Raven's social and culivated life-style. In other words, their relationship is happy and harmonious.

Raven and Brown Bear

Brown Bear has an even temperament and a steady nature. He loves rules he can depend on and favors safe boundries and predictable schedules. It is possible that Raven will feel restricted in her natural tendencies. She cherishes diversion, loves not only being on the go but also the finer things in life. Misunderstandings are inevitable in such a relationship.

Raven and Raven

Two Ravens will fly into each other arms. They belong to the element air and are in great need of varied and exciting stimulation, diversion, and entertainment. Since they perceive the world in much the same way, they will fulfill their desires effortlessly. The only thing this relationship may lack is emotional and spiritual depth. Their partnership may remain somewhat platonic and hinge on intellect rather than passion.

Raven and Serpent

Raven has a kind and accommodating personality and is always interested in balance. This often leads to having different opinions at different times, depending on the situation. Serpent, in comparison, tends to hold steadfast to an opinion once it has been reached. This could be a possible point of contention, particulary since, at times, Serpent wants to explore emotional aspects in more depth, something with which Raven is not comfortable.

Raven and Owl

Since the elements fire and air are involved in this relationship, Raven and Owl get along well. They also have promising things in common that make for a very harmonious relationship. Among other things, it is particularly the diplomacy and tolerance of Raven that accommodates Owl's needs.

Raven and Goose

When Raven and Goose meet, the spark of love might be missing in the beginning because of the difference in their personalities. The carefree attitude of Raven is difficult for Goose to understand because she lives life in moderation and has a serious and sober attitude. She could, however, learn a few things from Raven's carefree lifestyle. In turn, Raven could learn from concentration and consistency from Goose.

Raven and Otter

Whenever two people share the same element, things look very good indeed. Such is the relationship between Raven and Otter. The idealistic Otter, rich in ingenuity, can be very stimulating--something Raven seeks. Otter, on the other hand, finds in Raven a partner who will be interested in his plans and who supports them enthusiastically.

Raven and Wolf

Raven and Wolf need time to respect and understand each other, if that is possible at all. Their greatest problem may be that Raven sometimes seems to be emotionally unavailable--which makes Wolf withdraw into his own world.
