Native American horoscope: Each direction has a spirit that protects 3 signs 🧭

The wheel turns according to the seasons. Spring, summer, autumn and winter are thus broken down into 12 moons which are themselves grouped into four families. The wheel is read starting from the East, where the Sun rises.

  • In the East is the Wabun spirit and the signs of the Wolf or Cougar, the Saurus Falcon and the Beaver.
  • In the South is the Shawnodese spirit and the signs of the Deer, the Green Woodpecker or Golden Pileated Woodpecker and the Salmon or Sturgeon.
  • To the West is the Mudjekeewis spirit and the signs of the Brown Bear, the Raven and the Snake.
  • To the North is the Waboose spirit and the signs of the Elk or Owl, the Snow Goose and the Otter.

>>> Read up on your zodiac sign's spirit animal here.

Each clan has 3 signs under each element

As in the western horoscope, the Butterfly, Turtle, Thunderbird and Frog clans are associated with one of the four zodiac sign elements.

  • The Butterfly clan, corresponding to the Air element, rules the Otter, the Deer and the Raven.
  • The Turtle clan, corresponding to the Earth element, governs the Snow Goose, the Beaver and the Brown Bear.
  • The Thunderbird clan, corresponding to the Fire element, rules the Saurus Falcon, the Sturgeon or Salmon and the Elk or Owl.
  • The Frog clan, corresponding to the Water element, rules the Cougar or Wolf, the Golden Colapte or Green Woodpecker and the Snake.

What are Native American zodiac signs?

Native American astrological signs, also known as shamanic signs, offer a unique approach to astrology rooted in the traditions and spirituality of the indigenous peoples of North America. Each sign is represented by a spirit animal, embodying specific qualities and energies linked to the period of birth. For example, the Salmon symbolizes passion and leadership, while the Deer evokes agility and adaptability.

Unlike Western astrology, Native American zodiac signs emphasize the connection with nature and cosmic cycles, stressing the importance of living in harmony with the environment. These signs offer invaluable guidance for navigating daily life and realizing one's full potential. By exploring the characteristics and tendencies associated with each sign, individuals can better understand their personality and life path, while developing a deeper awareness of their place in the universe and their connection with the earth and its elements.

What is this art based on, and how does it work?

Aries, Taurus, Gemini, we all know the Western zodiac signs, which influence our temperaments and life destinies. Like the Chinese, the Africans or the Polynesians, the Amerindians also have their own zodiac. Here, it is based on the medicine wheel, an ancestral tool used by Amerindian shamans. This wheel aims at finding a balance on the physical, emotional, psychic and spiritual levels. The Medicine Wheel is presented as "a vision that wanted to bring people to have a better relationship with the Earth and all beings living on Earth: minerals, plants, animals, humans and spirits". Just like with the signs of the Western zodiac, each moon (a period of 28 days corresponding to a month) is attached to one of the four directions, a mineral element (a stone), a plant element (a plant, herb or flower) and a totem animal that gives its name to the sign it represents.

Straight lines are the work of mankind, and only humans are able to perceive them. The Natives produced circles which, for them, followed the roundness of the Moon and complied with the shapes of their architecture. Even their social rituals involve circular forms; the sun dance and their medicine wheel. This culture's philosophy sees the world as being divided into four compass points and then by intermediary points. The arrangement known as the ‘octagonal system’ is based on eight separate parts, which can also be found in other astrological beliefs, such as in Chinese astrology. Vertical and horizontal lines are used to mark the solstices. The compass points are of great importance for the Native Americans, along with the number four, which is said to be sacred. Each compass point is associated to a color, an animal, a planet and a mineral.

Native American astrology is used to predict events, through a shaman capable for communicating with and channeling the spirits. The predictions could focus on the harvests, the ideal time and place in which to hunt, climate changes, as well as the consequences of our acts.
