The Native Americans have believed in astrology for centuries and have developed the system of earth astrology. The year is divided into twelve zodiac signs each named after a particular animal. These creatures are thought to be animal guides who help a person throughout his life. These animal guides teach crucial lessons in life.
Native American Astrology originated nearly about 5000 years ago. It was the ancient Native American people who planned to develop a system which will allow them to derive the maximum benefits from the rhythms of life. This led to the evolution of the Native American Astrology. The Mesoamerican calendar mechanism that was created with the aim to harmonize life with the natural events is one of the ancient and the most accurate form existing till date.
This form of astrology has its zodiac named after animal names, because Native American cultures have most of their myths and legends with animals as the principal characters. These people believe that animals play an important role in preaching crucial life lessons to the younger generation and thus, the zodiac has also been created on the basis of animal guides. The twelve signs of the Native American Astrology have been named after the twelve animals. The twelve zodiacs have been listed as follows: Goose, Otter, Wolf, Hawk, Beaver, Elk, Woodpecker, Salmon, Bear, Raven/Crow, Snake and Owl.
