About SALMON Birth Totem:

Native American Animal Symbols ~ SALMON Birth Totem

Electric, focused, intuitive, and wholly creative, the Salmon is a real live-wire. His/her energy is palpable. A natural motivator, the Salmon's confidence and enthusiasm is easily infectious. Soon, everybody is onboard with the Salmon – even if the idea seems too hair-brained to work. Generous, intelligent, and intuitive, it's no wonder why the Salmon has no shortage of friends. This Native American animal symbol expresses a need for purpose and goals, and has no trouble finding volunteers for his/her personal crusades. In a supportive environment, the Salmon is stable, calm, sensual, and giving. Left to his/her own devices, those that bear this Native American animal symbol can be egotistical, vulgar, and intolerant of others.

The Salmon and His or Her Partner

Salmon and Falcon

This is a relationship of two very temperamental and passionate people, who often like or even love each other at first sight. Falcon is sure to do justice to Salmon's expectations and to stand by him. Since both are determined and dominant people, it would serve them well to decide the rules of the game early. That way they will avoid unnecessary differences.

Salmon and Beaver

People influenced by the elements fire and earth may find themselves in a quandry. Both should be willing to compromise and lower the high expectations they have of the other. Unfortunately, both can be stubborn at times, which makes giving in difficult. But when it comes to being comfortable , both agree.

Salmon and Deer

Salmon and Deer make a happy twosome who have no difficulty accommodating, each other. The elements fire and air compliment each other, as do their personalities. This almost guarantees that they will suffer no lack of stimulation. Deer, whether Stag or Doe, is very flexible and willing to compromise, giving the more dominate Salmon few problems.

Salmon and Woodpecker

The contradictions in this relationship cannot be denied even if, in the end, they provide an opportunity for mutual growth. Salmon is a natural leader who radiates kindness and warmth. He is a person one can lean on (if you are accommodating). And that is exactly what Woodpecker sometimes searches for. However, Salmon must try to be less dominate.

Salmon and Salmon

Two Salmon together--what a strong team they can be! However, only if they are willing to develope a team spirit and avoid competing for leadership--after all, Salmon ruled by fire, is a dominant personality. What's certain is that when these two meet, sparks will fly.

Salmon and Brown Bear
Salmon loves to have people look up to him. Brown Bear is willing and able to do just that. However, it remains to be seen if that's sufficent for a happy and fulfilling relationship. It would be good if there were other aspects they can agree on. Searching for them wouldn't be an easy matter. Both Salmon and Brown Bear closely examine their situation before deciding to tie the knot.

Salmon and Raven

The element air, which Raven supplies, literally brings a breath of fresh air into the life of Salmon. Fortunately, Raven has no intention of challenging the Salmon's leadership. This is a relationship in which harmony reigns. Salmon and Raven can create a satisfying, sophisticated lifestyle.

Salmon and Serpent

Since Serpent loves to delve into the subconscious and unfathomable secret subjects, Salmon might feel uncomfortable at times. Serpent has the uncanny ability to uncover peculiarities, sensitive subjects, and weaknesses--in other words: easily look behind Salmon's or anyone else's facade. It will not be easy to overcome a little mistrust in order to form a trusting relationship.

Salmon and Owl

Salmon will quickly fall in love with Owl. After all, they have the element fire in common. However, this fact alone does not guarantee a happy relationship. Owl asks for a lot of freedom and independence--which requires trust and tolerance--and Salmon might at times have a problem granting that.

Salmon and Goose

Goose may appear alien to Salmon and little will change unless Salmon makes the effort to discover and understand the needs of Goose. While any effort Salmon makes would be richly rewarded, his automatic expectations and demands may get in the way.

Salmon and Otter

Since Otter loves freedom, independence, and self-sufficiency, he won't adapt to the rules of Salmon without taking a close look at the reasons behind them. This could easily lead to tension. Attraction or rejection depends to a large degree on how receptive and tolerant Salmon and Otter are with each other. While the dissimilarities cannot be denied, such a relationship also has great possibilities.

Salmon and Wolf

While Wolf is often rough on the outside, he is also very soft inside, and that softness or gentleness could attract Salmon. No matter how much the Wolf leans on Salmon, he won't reveal everything. Wolf also holds many cards in his hand close to his chest. The question is: does Salmon have enough patience and empathy to understand Wolf?
