The Compass Rose was a navigation tool used by sailors. A traditional compass rose displays the four cardinal directions of the compass; north south, east and west. This variation on that theme also depicts the half-steps between the cardinal poles: north-east, north-west, south-east, south-west. This mandala pays reverence to direction. How important is it to have direction? Whether it is advice, position, motive, or angle, we all need a direction. What sways our choices? Are we pre-destined to follow a course? Astrology provides answers. Like a map of your potential and destiny, astrology uncovers strengths and weaknesses; likes and dislikes; modes and moods. Like the zodiacal wheel, the Compass Rose depicts a chart, or course from which to depart. The beauty and simplicity of character can be found in the poetry of the chart.

Therein lies the answer for therein lies the direction.
