Four Directions Reading


Each of the four directions has energies and characteristics specific to it. In Native lore each or these directions are aligned with a season, a point in the cycle of life, an animal totem (and its corresponding energies), a color, a mineral, an element (earth, air, fire, water), and a plant and various other energies. The exact association of each can differ from tribe to tribe.

In this four directional reading you will be given the animals that are influencing each of the four directions balanced by the animal that is most significant in your life right now.
