The indigenous tribes of America had developed a very special spiritual connection with nature. As it is the case in the Chinese Astrology, the zodiac signs in native American tradition are exclusively animals. The Native Americans believed that at the time of our birth, the characteristics of an animal are assigned to each new-born soul and form our personality.
