BIRTH TOTEMS

A birth totem is similar to an astrological sign of the zodiac. Just as you astrological sign, it tells you things
about your personality, your attitudes, your positive and negative sides. These totems usually referred to as Solar totems because they encompass many aspects of the "solar" system.

From seasonal relationships to moon phases.

Do not confuse Birth Totems, spiritual totems or spirit animal guides.

As those relationships are purely spiritual, they teach you and help you along your spiritual path.

The Birth totem are more than spiritual symbolism set along the road to help us understand a certain situation in our life.

These aspects tell us about who we are, why we probably look at things in a certain way and react to situations or people using particular responses.

We are more in tune with the characteristics of these aspects, almost as if we mirror of those traits and
qualities. We can therefore use their strengths to help us over come our weaknesses.

The following is a brief listing of the Solar Birth Totems.
