About OWL Birth Totem:

Native American Animal Symbols ~ OWL Birth Totem

Changeable and mutable as the wind, the Owl is a tough one to pin down. Warm, natural, with an easy-going nature, the Owl is friend to the world. The bearer of this Native American animal symbol is notorious for engaging in life at full speed, and whole-hearted loves adventure. This can be to his/her detriment as the Owl can be reckless, careless, and thoughtless. Owls make great artists, teachers, and conservationists. However, due to his/her adaptability and versatility – the Owl would likely excel in any occupation. In a supportive, nurturing environment the Owl is sensitive, enthusiastic, and an attentive listener. Left to his/her own devices, the Owl can be excessive, overindulgent, bitter, and belligerent.

The Owl and His or Her Partner

Owl and Falcon

The element fire rules this relationship. This means that not only is there good cooperation between both, but that Owl and Falcon have a spontaneous and genuine exchange of feelings. One is almost tempted to declare them a dream couple. They enrich each other, and together they can do almost anything to which they set their minds. Falcon gladly supports Owl's idealistic endeavers.

Owl and Beaver

Owl and Beaver do not always get along. When steadfast and deliberate Beaver meets Owl, Owl often feels restricted. Beaver often finds it diffilculty to understand Owl's bold and idealistic dreams. This is reason enough for them not to rush to the alter too fast.

Owl and Deer

Initially, Owl and Deer will like each other, since fire and air, their respective elements, compliment each other. Both seek knowledge, activity, and sociability. But on closer inspection, a few contradictions, which can only be overcome with tolerance and much hard work, will be apparent. Owl should try to be less exacting, and Deer should try to approach things more seriously.

Owl and Woodpecker

Owl and Woodpecker have a few differences to overcome if they chose to be a couple. An important requirement to a lasting relationship is goodwill. Woodpecker often prefers to keep Owl home, which she won't like at all. If Owl's freedom and independence are seriously restricted, she will take off.

Owl and Salmon

Both Owl and Salmon belong to the element fire. A harmless flirtation could quickly turn serious, as long as Salmon, in his generosity and openness, can bring himself to understand the idealism and flights of fancy typical for Owl. Furthermore, if Salmon keeps his jealous streak in check, nothing will stand in the way of a passionate and enduring love relationship.

Owl and Brown Bear

Brown Bear and Owl's relationship is unlikely to be passionate and enduring. Brown Bear relies more on facts than fancies, and Owl spends his life searching for truth and questioning reality. Only if both are able to understand the interests and views of the other can this relationship grow.

Owl and Raven

Owl and Raven can be a good team, which is as interseting as it is spirited. Since Raven intellectually open and able to see things and ideas realistically, he can act as a motivator as well as an advisor. Also, Owl's entrepreneurial spirit and Raven's sence of adventure are promising criteria for happiness and harmony.

Owl and Serpent

Fire and water are elements that do not go together. Owl seeks high ideals and is attracted by intellectual pursuits. Serpent, on the other hand, is more at home in the deep and mysterious world of the soul. Misunderstandings won't be long in coming. Both are willing explorers, and this could help bridge the different worlds in which they live.

Owl and Owl

Two Owls together! What an exciting and fascinating relationship this could be, ruled by the element fire. A double dose of idealism and engagement can propel this pair. They are also unbeatable when it comes to making plans. Ideally, each will pay attention to the needs of the other and thereby maintain a happy love relationship.

Owl and Goose

Here Owl will probably bang his head against a brick wall. The sensible, realistic, and disciplined Goose will bring Owl back to the hard facts of reality. The result usually is frustrating. But if Owl is able to be convincing. Goose will provide an unconditional and reliable support.

Owl and Otter

Owl and Otter like each other immediately. Both are made for love-at-first-sight. Both are very competitive, each trying to come up with the best idea, the most outrageous adventure, and the most humanitarian views. Thiers will be a relationship in which both parents positively influence the other's personal development.

Owl and Wolf

This combination is likely to be burdened with many difficulties. The elements water and fire require that both Owl and Wolf work hard at their relationship. The question is: Are they both willing to make the effort? At best, this will be a relationship based on tolerance and acceptance and that may not be enough for both.
