Native American Animal Symbols ~ DEER Birth Totem
http://www.whats-your-sign.com/animal-symbolism-deer.htm

This Native American animal symbol is the muse of the zodiac. The Deer is inspiring lively and quick-witted. With a tailor-made humor, the Deer has a tendency to get a laugh out of anyone. Excellent ability for vocalizing, the Deer is a consummate conversationalist. This combined with his/her natural intelligence make the Deer a must-have guest at dinner parties. Always aware of his/her surroundings, and even more aware of his/her appearance, the Deer can be a bit self-involved. However, the Deer's narcissism is overlooked because of his/her congeniality and affability. In a supportive environment the Deer's natural liveliness and sparkly personality radiate even more. He/she is an inspiring force in any nurturing relationship. Left to his/her own devices the Deer can be selfish, moody, impatient, lazy, and two-faced.

The Deer and His or Her Partner

Deer and Falcon


The elements air and fire could create intense heat, and Deer would surly love to be conquered and seduced by Falcon. In addition, such a relationship is rich in ideas and dynamic activities. Whatever the Deer can conceive, the Falcon will carry out. Here not only will love prosper, but joint projects and plans will also.

Deer and Beaver

In the beginning these two signs won't suffer from sleepless nights. Deer is loose and carefree, and Beaver stands on solid ground. Since they are both so different, they may compliment and enrich each other. But there is no guarantee they'll live happily ever after. Whatever else is required, both must be willing to compromise.

Deer and Deer

When people of the same element and the same sign meet, a great deal of accord can be expected. And, indeed, two Deer can have much fun together and constantly stimulate each other. Their relationship will be interesting and exciting. But too much intellectual excitement and diversion could mean lack of emotional depth.

Deer and Woodpecker
The elements air (Deer) and water (Woodpecker) are strangers. While Woodpecker builds a comfortable nest, hoping that her love will feel at home, Stag roams about and might forget to come home. Under such circumstances, one cannot hope for a great deal of cooperation. However, in such a relationship Stag has a chance to learn something about deep emotions.

Deer and Salmon

Deer and Salmon, due to the harmonizing elements air and fire, tend to get along well, sometimes extremely well. They both love a certain amount of freedom and are always open to positive inspirations and diversions. The fact that Salmon loves to be the leader makes no difference to Deer. If it gets to be too much, she will simply take off for a few days.

Deer and Brown Bear

While Brown Bear could be an ideal companion, in the beginning Deer won't be overjoyed because the elements air and earth do not make an ideal mixture. Brown Bear, because he is so dutiful and principled, may spoil the fun for Doe and accuse her of being superficial. But there is one thing that does shine: they both have goodwill.

Deer and Raven

Here, again, are two signs that have the element air in common, which promises to be an interesting and stimulating combination. Both Deer and Raven have spirit and are very sociable. Not many desires will remain unfulfilled, if any at all. Only their strong, leaning toward diversion could sooner or later create stress.

Deer and Serpent

The problem with this combination can be that Deer prefers to explore the obvious things in life while Serpent is more tuned to deep and secret areas. The question is whether the two elements, air and water, will meet on the intellectual or emotional plane. Under ideal circumstances, it won't be either-or but rather, both. That's not always easy.

Deer and Owl


Apart from a few contradictory traits, people belonging to these signs should get along well. Deer believes in logic and knownledge, and Owl wants to discover and understand the wisdom behind the knowledge. If Deer is willing to engage in such deep intellectual endeavers, nothing will stand in the way of happiness.

Deer and Goose

In the beginning, Deer has no idea of what to do with Goose, who belongs to the element earth. Deer is relaxed, agile, and sometimes even superficial. The strict and more focused Goose could serve as either a solid foundation for Deer or be a hindrance. This is the big question that both would do well to take the time to answer.

Deer and Otter

Otter, another creature ruled by the element air, is just what Deer hopes to find. Pooling their strengths, these two could reach intellectual heights that could assume ever new dimentions. However, there is also the danger of canceling each other out. For that reason, Deer and Otter should make sure not to ignore the commonplace realities of life.

Deer and Wolf

With Deer and Wolf, the elements air and water meet. The danger in this relationship is that both live separate lives because their needs are so different. They might not be able to understand each other, let alone find common ground, unless Stag, contrary to his usual habit, is willing to delve into his emotions and Wolf is willing to be more carefree.
