The thirteen animals in the Celtic Zodiac are Deer, Cat, Snake, Fox, Cow, Seahorse, Wren, Horse, Fish, Swan, Butterfly, Wolf and Falcon. Your character depends on which animal sign you belong to. If you are born on May 1, then you belong to the Zodiac sign Cow. As a Cow, you would be strong, loving, stable and sure. Also Celts have devised their zodiac sign based on the Lunar months.

Animal Totems: In addition to all these Zodiac signs bearing the animals to their name, there are also animal totem that was practiced in various cultures of the world. Totem is something that you would want to be identified with and animal totem means the same but with an animal. Suppose you find yourself too close in character with your house dog, then he is your totem.

You can find your animal totem when you go for a jog or when you are busy travelling to your work. Some people pray to get an animal totem and sleep so that they can see their animal totems in dreams.
