If your birthday falls between January 20th and February 18th, your birth totem is the Otter. You were born under the element of air during the Rest and Cleansing Moon with Waboose (White Buffalo) acting as your Spirit Guide throughout your lifetime. You have a strong connection to the winds of the North and you belong to the Butterfly Clan. You will find a connection with your plant totem, the Quaking Aspen or the Fern. Silver or turquoise act as your mineral totem.
You are active physically, mentally, and emotionally because of your connection with the Butterfly Clan. You find new and unusual ways of doing things and like Air you are always shifting and moving much like the Butterfly. Butterfly people look for ways to serve the people and usually help others in the healing of mind, body, and spirit.
