Native American Horoscope

Many Native American cultures have myths and legends where animals are the main characters or play an important role in teaching the younger generation important life lessons. Some of these cultures have created a belief system, or zodiac, based on animal guides.

The horoscopes on this page are based on Native American beliefs. Due to the number of indigenous tribes, who do not all have the same beliefs, we have selected some of the more widely accepted zodiacs and totems.

When an animal's name is underlined you can click on that name and it will bring you to a page of totem information about that animal. If you would like to see what we have in our gift shop for each animal click here.
