We all spend more time than we'd like to admit reading our horoscopes. Sure, there is a chance that the stars may know what's going on but how accurate can it be? Well, in my experience, it has always been basically right on.
Honestly, it's almost crazy how accurate these zodiac representations can be. But did you realize that the zodiac you are most familiar with isn't the only way to learn about yourself? In Native American culture, they use the time of the year you were born in to discover which spirit animal best reflects your personality and it's almost more accurate than the zodiac we already know.
Let's see which one you are!
January 20 - February 18: The Otter
You are often thought to be the unconventional one in the group, but the way you do things always works for you. Your intuition gets you through all kinds of situations because you are able to perceive the best solution easily.
You are known to be sensitive and sympathetic, while remaining honest about the situation. You have the tendency to get a little bit inappropriate at times and can isolate yourself, but your rebellious nature is what helps you make your own way in the world.
February 19 - March 20: The Wolf
Your passion and heart helps you tend to the emotional needs of your loved ones. While everyone thinks you love nothing more than being "the lone wolf," you actually are full of compassion and generosity for those you care about.
You do however, greatly value your independence and sometimes your desire to chase that leads you down a ruthless path of obsessive behavior. But that passion is what you need to feel like you are making the right choices.
March 21 - April 19: The Falcon
You are always filling the role of the leader in any situation because your ability to make quick decisions is unparalleled. You are focused and confident, which can sometimes come off as though you were bragging, but you don't pay too much attention to that because you are too busy moving on to the next task.
When it comes to your relationships, you have a tendency to get impatient and intolerant, but it's because your opinions are often right and you know it.
April 20 - May 20: The Beaver
Like the falcon, you love to be in charge, however your leadership style is a bit different. You are cunning and quick, but your planning often takes place behind the scenes. Strategy is your strong suit, and you can get a little bit stubborn when people try to step away from your plan.
You are helpful and loyal, but at times you can get possessive and demanding of the people around you. You do it because you believe your way is the right way, but you probably need to constantly remind yourself that you want to be a more compassionate person.
May 21 - June 20: The Deer
Your quick wit is unlike anyone else. Your ability to diffuse any situation with humor is absolutely outstanding. Your ability to converse with anyone helps you out in a lot of situations and your congenial attitude makes you a fun person to be around.
You do tend to get a little bit involved in your own life, ignoring those around you. You can be a little bit impatient and moody, but most of the time you are able to shine in a group setting.
June 21 - July 21: The Woodpecker
You strive to be supportive to the people in your life. You are organized and capable, but you can be a little excessively frugal when you don't need to be. You are a romantic and feel like you need someone to put all that caring energy towards.
You do however get spiteful and jealous when the people you put effort into don't reciprocate in the way you expect.
July 22 - August 21: The Salmon
Your energy is something unlike anyone else. You have this creativity buzzing in your soul that gives you confidence that helps you motivate those around you. It's almost as if your energy is contagious because your enthusiasm spreads to the many friends you collect over the years.
You tend to suffer from biased opinions and can be a little bit intolerant to people who don't share your opinions, but normally you come across as a calming presence to the people in your life.
August 22 - September 21: The Bear
You have this level-headed attitude that makes you the expert when it comes to the practical approach. You are capable of thinking out all of the options, and deciding the best method to actually accomplish your goals.
You are often shy and can be very modest about your achievements, but are never shy to show others love. You are often skeptical and can become reclusive at times, but your desire to make the best decisions often pushes you back out.
September 22 - October 22: The Raven
You have a level of enthusiasm that is almost incomprehensible. Everyone wants to know your secrets. You have this easy charm that you can exude that is simultaneously diplomatic and innovative. You have an entrepreneurial spirit and your fresh ideas help you start something new without ruffling too many feathers.
You can be demanding of those around you, and can even become abrasive at times, but you do your best to remain patient.
October 23 - November 22: The Snake
You are mysterious and and secretive, but it works well for you as you are sensitive to those who need someone to share their deepest secrets with. You are adaptable and flexible, but maintain a fierce protective attitude of those you care about.
You can experience violent mood swings and may be a little bit despondent from time to time, but you have a connection to the spiritual world that always reigns you in.
November 23 - December 21: The Owl
You love an adventure, and are extremely adaptable. You can go along with anyone and anything, but sometimes you can become reckless and thoughtless with your actions. You are sensitive and attentive when you are with others, with a warm energy that makes people feel comfortable.
If not fulfilling your wanderlust, you can become bitter and overindulge in your vices, but as long as you are granted a little bit of freedom you have the capacity to be a friend to many.
December 22 - January 19: The Goose
You are the type of person that everyone gives all their jobs to because they know you can handle it. No matter what the goal is, you can get it done. You are a driven and determined person, and you are considered by many to be wise beyond your years.
However, you can fall victim to addictive behaviors and laziness that can derail your progress towards your goals. But your humor, gregarious attitude, and passion help you get back on track when you are around those who support you unconditionally.
