Native American Astrology – The Sturgeon Totem


In Native American astrology, there are twelve Native American zodiac signs based on the medicine wheel and they make up a twelve-month calendar. For each month, there is a corresponding animal sign, and this animal sign contributes to the character traits of the person born under that Native American zodiac sign.

But Native American spirituality suggests that these animals also offer themselves as spirit companions for those born under that sign. They make themselves available to help each person learn life lessons, develop more desirable characteristics and heal in whatever way helps them grow and become the people they were meant to be.

This article series has taken a look at each of the twelve Native American zodiac signs and in this article, we will examine the sturgeon. If you were born between July 23rd and August 22nd, you were born under the sign of the sturgeon totem.

From the sturgeon, you can learn how to persevere no matter how difficult the situation, how to stay true to your course, you can strengthen your determination and learn about depth and knowledge.

Sturgeon Totem Character Traits

“Individuals born under the sign of the sturgeon, considered to be one of the strongest signs in Native American astrology, are dominant, spontaneous, creative and extroverted. These people were born to lead. They possess grace and dignity, and they have an expansive personality. Ambitious and strong-willed, they are positive and confident in their abilities. These people know what they want in life and they get it.”-Deborah Durbin, Simply Native American Astrology

Does this sound familiar?

If you were born under this sign, you are not easily discouraged and will persist to achieve your goal. You can keep going in even the toughest circumstances. You can be quite stubborn, too, in your persistence, and in other ways. Sometimes, you just refuse to hear the other person’s side of things.

But you also are kind and generous and though you determine to succeed, you do not want to do so at someone else’s expense.

You are meant to lead but do not function well on a team. Faced with teamwork, you often will end up taking charge.

Generally, you have positive expectations, but sometimes react badly when things do not turn out as you expected. At times like those, it helps to have loved ones around to encourage you and this often helps to restore your self-confidence.


You are likely to rise to the top in business or commerce but may have standards too high for politics. Any career that offers leadership and advancement would be of benefit.
