Description
"The medicine wheel is a universal symbol shared among many Native American cultures. It represents time, life cycles, the power of the natural and supernatural worlds, and each individual's path of personal growth. Every culture on Earth has a link to the individual's path of personal growth. Every culture on Earth has a link to the invention of some form of astrology, with perhaps the most familiar systems being Western and Chinese astrology. The Native Americans, too, developed an astrological system for understanding the world and envisioning harmony in the universe. Based on animals and clans and including corresponding trees, stones, and colors, the medicine wheel is broken into four seasons with twelve moons similar to the twelve signs in Western astrology. In fascinating detail and with illustrations throughout, this new entry in the Plain & Simple series explores the medicine wheel, shows you how to find your primary and secondary totem animals, and gives you insight into your personality traits and strengths and weaknesses of each. No prior knowledge of astrology is necessary to be successful with this book. Simply read on and enjoy your journey into the world of Native American astrology." --Publisher's description.
