Woodpecker is the nurturer of the Native American zodiac. He/she is an empathic companion, an understanding listener, a supportive force that turns up exactly when you need it. Woodpeckers have excellent inborn parenting skills; they know what it takes to be a loyal friend and partner.
Inventive and well-organized, Woodpeckers can be very effective workers. When raised in a positive environment, Woodpeckers learn to take care of others, to be lavish with love and attention. Unfortunately, when cast adrift, they can turn embittered, envious and jealous, selfish, or even vindictive.
