Native American Astrology

The journey within starts from above

Many people are well aware of their zodiac signs(SAGITTARIUS!)   and their Chinese zodiac animals (DOG!) but it wasn’t until a few weeks ago when a friend and I visited MacRae’s Indian Books on a trollop about town that we discovered the Native Americans ideals of astrology through a book called “Simply Native American Astrology” by Deborah Durbin. similar to other systems of astrology the dates and months of your birth correspond with an animal but there’s more to it, you also learn things like your clan, moon and stone. the book also offers insights into your personality traits and famous people born under your sign (some born under my sign included Walt Disney, Frank Sinatra, and Brad Pitt). Now i have never been one to buy into that things are “written in the stars” but my sign was eerily accurate and synced up with my personality quite well! though the book  is fairly broad and generalized, the fact remains that everyone in my family found themselves agreeing with what the book said. the book also allows you to find your spirit and totem animal through a series of questions. a good coffee table or bathroom read “Simply Native American Astrology” delights and entertains but also educates people on Native American culture and beliefs, something i have always been fond of. Check of what you would be!
