Symbolism of the Turkey Vulture
Some of the main traits Turkey Vultures carry with them include watchfulness, intelligence and cautiousness. They are natural born hunters and have the ability to spot prey from far away. They evaluate situations, attempting to make the best possible moves and avoid getting caught by other predators.
So how does this reflect as a totem? Traits associated with the totem include intelligence, tolerance, calm, introspection, shrewdness, being analytical and evaluative.
Like the Turkey Vulture, you have an analytical nature, assessing your situation, standing back and thinking on a decision instead of rushing in. You enjoy internalizing ideas and being introspective meaning you may find it hard to discuss the mundane. Your calm and collected nature means you find it easy to organize and keep a disciplined approach to life.
