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.
