The Four Directions Spindle Whorl is a combination of four eagle’s heads encircled by four salmon.
The Eagle has the ability with its powerful eyesight to see a long way into the distance. He has vision. To plan far ahead, to see where he is, and where he is going. The Eagle carries clarity in his vision, on the physical level as well as the spiritual.
We as a people look to the four directions to understand where we will be in the future. We need to get our bearings before making a step. Sometimes the best steps made are after you have made a mistake. Then you may need to change direction!
Four directions is not only seeing as far as you can but also of the vision you see for your own future and the future of your children and even grandchildren. This view makes you plan ahead, it propels you to work hard right now because you see the success of your family relying on what you create with the years before you. The four directions are the foundation of life.
