My sign is under Hawk Clan:

"Keywords: Independent, Trailblazing, Courageous, Impetuous

Hawk Clan individuals are born with the drive to Initiate. They are the trailblazers of the Clans with the Group Consciousness to Discover All that is New. As a result, their function within the greater tribe of Humanity, is to be the Clan that broadens boundaries which might otherwise limit the progression of Humanity within the ~physical~ plane. They are not on the ~Good Red Road~ to build or to harvest, they are the Clan that forges the way ahead in preparation of the planting and harvesting that is to be done by the other Clans. And here-in lies the challenge of this Clan . . . to learn the gift of Patience, for to utilize our gifts to their fullest potential, we need also to have true understanding of that which would appear to be our polar opposite.

Think of the Hawk soaring high, held aloft on the invisible hands of the Four Winds. His eyes scan all below and before him with a perception that is without equal, and yet his true desire is not to know what lies below, his true yearning is to rejoin with ~Grandfather Sky.~

As such, Hawk Clan souls are always looking for Higher Union of Spirit, and will be restless and anxious until they learn that true union comes first in the form of the union between Personality, Emotion, Mind and Soul, or that which is referred to in esoteric astrology as ~integration.~ When the union has become complete, when the Hawk Clan member has flown in each of the Four Winds and learned the lessons unique to each, then the union with Grandfather Sky will be attained. "

"The birth totem embodies the innate characteristics of the Dominant forces operating in nature at the time of one's birth."

Mine is salmon or sturgeon

"The sturgeon is known as the king of fishes. A primitive fish that has probably existed on the earth since around the time the dinosaurs disappeared ... . Sturgeons were considered the royalty of fishes among the Native people who lived in the Great Lakes area. In the Ojibwa nation there is a Sturgeon clan that is one of the teaching clans. To the Ojibwa people the sturgeon represents depth and strength. ... Working with the sturgeon can teach you about your determination, perseverance, depth, knowledge, generosity, strength, and sexuality."

"Birth Totem Salmon is an individual whose outer personality is driven by the need to Create and have dominion over his/her environment. The desire to create is motivated by Birth Totem Salmons desire to leave a lasting impression. Depending upon what level of personality the Salmon individual is choosing to operate from, this may manifest itself as either the desire to inspire others through their own example, and thus be as a lantern in the night, or they may be operating from the desire to bring acknowledgment for the achievements they have made to assuage the feelings of self doubt which may harry them until they learn the lesson of Self acceptance. ... Life’s emotional currents may run deep, and at times tumultuous, yet as the Salmon will forge its way upstream against seemingly impossible odds so that they may propagate their species, Birth Totem Salmon will become truly Whole when he/she has conquered the currents that roil within their own hearts. ... Only once he/she has learned that the Destination is not the End, and that life’s currents are not always an upstream battle, when the realization is made that one must delve within for the Answers they desperately seek, may they find the insight which is the Birth Right of this Totem. Then, as they swim in the deep clear waters of Awareness and Understanding, they will realize that the doorway to Home has always been WithIn."

"The Directional totem aligns or brings one into harmony with his or her inner Senses."

My direction is south.

"The elemental totems describe instinctive behaviours, those Behaviours which are natural as opposed to learned or enforced. The tree, Stone and colour associated with each totem have the power to convey Strength during times of challenge, stress or testing."

My plant totem is the raspberry (my sign is under the ripe berries moon).

"The raspberry itself is a delicacy, and the leaves and root of the plant have medicinal properties. The berries not only delight but also cleanse the system. They can aid in breaking up and expelling gallstones and kidney stones and stimulate the action of the urinary tract. The root is an astringent and has some antibiotic and healing properties. It can be used as a gargle for sore throats. The tea as a compress has been applied to wounds and cuts to slow bleeding. A tea from the leaves can be used to cure diarrhea, cankers, uterine problems, and menstrual issues. Raspberry leaf tea is one of the belt herbal teas for pregnant women, acting as a tonic. A tea from the twigs is good for colds, flues, difficulty in breathing, and for balancing blood sugar levels. Raspberry plants can teach you to find the sweetness within the thorns of life."

My minerals are the garnet and iron (and/or carnelian):

"Garnet and iron are the minerals associated with the Ripe Berries Moon. Garnet can help to balance your sexual energies. It is associated with the heart and blood and can stimulate the free flow of emotion in its wearer.

Garnet can help to strengthen those who carry it, can warn of danger, and can help you to lead a good and honorable life. It can also help you penetrate to the heart of any matter.

Iron is good for the blood and heart. It can remind you of the necessity of being tempered by life's experiences. It can encourage you to have a discriminating hardness that will allow you to know when no is the answer that will promote the highest good for all that are involved."
