Earth Astrology: Raven


According to SunBear’s Earth Astrology, Raven is the Totem animal that corresponds to the Sun sign of Libra.

Raven is the keeper of magical law, teacher of natural law and dances with civil and social law.  They teach us to see the foolishness of civil/social law and to not be deceived by religious law.  Raven, Crow and Snake know the secrets of the twenty-count and communicate with numbers.  Raven teaches the power of light and communication with nature.  They know sacred law and can be the messenger for sorcerers and shamans. They are also known as a Trickster.

Crow, a member of the same family of birds as the Raven, has the ability to cloak and shadow.  Crows are the keepers of all natural law and messengers between medicine men.  They teach of civil and social law and dances with magickal law.  They also know the secrets of the counts and communicates with numbers.

Animal Medicine Monday – Raven


We are soon to complete the Sun Astrology of Libra for this year…

We would like to share a few tidbits about the animal totem within Sun Bear’s Earth Astrology that coincides with Libra, the Raven.

Ravens are intelligent, group oriented, and love to play.  Some mate for life.  They can ride on the wind like a hawk.  They know the secret of our communication with nature.

The Raven is the keeper of magickal law and teacher of natural law. It dances with civil and social law in such a way as to teach us to see its foolishness. The raven cannot be deceived by religious law. The raven and crow both know the secrets of the Twenty Count, the power of light and our communication with nature. They are the messengers for sorcerers and shamans. They know Sacred Law.

Did you know? Ravens are highly intelligent problem solvers, learning from, while nonetheless being wary of, their surroundings. They fly in groups and are known to be territorial, aggressive as well as highly adaptable. Ravens remind us of our power of light and how to increase our communication with nature, as they are the messengers for sorcerers and shamans alike. In the Sweet Medicine SunDance Path, they are the keeper of magickal law and teacher of natural law, and remind us how to create alchemical magick within the Sacred Law of the universe.
