A Rainbow of Spirituality

The Sturgeon Totem

Working with sturgeon can teach you about your determination, perseverance, depth, knowledge, generosity, strength and sexuality.

he Ripe Berries Moon fills Father Sky from July 23 to August 22.  It is the second moon of Shawnodese (Coyote) who is the Spirit Keeper of the South Direction.   Iron and garnet are the mineral totems for this moon.  Raspberry is the plant totem.  The sturgeon is the animal totem.  The color is red.  Fire is the element and the elemental clan is Thunderbird.

Iron teaches people about their strength and garnet shows them their heart is the source of that strength.  From the raspberry people  learn about their sweetness and the thorns they project to protect this part of themselves from other people.  The sturgeon shows people their depth and their need to teach.  The Ripe Berries Moon teaches people how to work from the heart center,  how to demonstrate affection,  how to face fears, and how to develop leadership abilities. Ripe Berries Moon helps develop courage and power.  People born with the Sturgeon totem need to guard against impulsiveness, arrogance, and a tendency to dominate any scenario.
