Starfish, also known as sea stars, is a species echinoderm found throughout the oceans. There are starfish who reproduce sexually and asexually and are typically opportunistic feeders, eating animals that cannot evade them.
To trust instincts is a lesson of this totem. It provides a way to see new opportunities that may arise and even help with gaining what is desired.
Regardless of what may happen, the starfish teaches to keep going ahead. Even if there is a failure or a loss, there is always a chance to regain what has been lost. Loss and failure is a normal part of life that may prove to be quite cruel, but giving up doesn't help.
