Even if they have to work against the current, they will courageously forge a new path to get what they want out of life.
Driven by their passion and bravery, the Salon totem does have a tendency to see the world in just black and white.

To outsiders, the Salmon can seem like a bit of a drama queen at times, but this is not because they have a huge ego. In reality, the Salmon needs to transform into a more self-actualized being. At times, this can lead to misconceptions and people mistake an attempt at self-actualization for ego.
The Salmon’s season is one of maturity, abundance and growth. They are ruled by the cardinal direction of the South-Southwest, the South wind and the Fire element. This connection is the reason why, despite their watery habitat in real life, the Salmon has a fiery passion and enthusiasm that they bring to everything that they do. Like anything that burns with such intensity, there is always a potential that the Salmon can end up burning out.
The Fire element lends the Salmon totem a natural exuberance for life and a strong sense of bravery. When combined with the Southern wind and direction, the Salmon is an exceptionally passionate Native American astrology sign. They are connected to the summer season, which lends the Salmon some rejuvenation. Spending time in nature and learning to be respectful to the earth help the Salmon rejuvenate.

It also instills a sense of confidence in the Salmon. Meanwhile, the raspberry cane plant helps to ring the Salmon totem a sense of joy and cleansing.
The Salmon is all about living the good life, but this does not mean that they are greedy. Instead, they would much rather achieve abundance and share their newfound richness with others.
