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.
