Kudos Kat. This reminded me of having visited Medicine Wheel Mountain in the mid-summer of 1980, as apart of my journey to aquaint my children to their Lakota Heritage. Through an unknown Force , probably my Lakota Great Grandmother Annie, I knew to walk on this Sacred ground only with Bared feet. We first walked around the Wheel anti-clockwise 7 times and then clockwise 7 times before entering into the centre from the east. I encouraged them to face the four directions as I said a silent prayer to our ancestors asking for guidance and in thanks for their protection of my children who carried their blood and genetic memories of a time gone by.
As we stood in the centre looking South on that clear day, I could see to the edge of the Grand Canyon and a line of Mesas which stretched to the southern horizon. It was aperfect spot to observe the land and sky, to communicate with those below and those above.
I sensed that this Wheel was deliberately placed underneath a particular Constellation( which one though , I don't know) and could feel the intense magnetic force emanating from beneath my feet and travelled up to the top of my head( I still get goose bumps thinking about it). All Medicine Wheel were placed over crossing magnetic ley lines for maximum energy transducement and transfer.
These Wheels had multiple uses, not only as healing facilitators but also, with astronomical and astrological implications. I would have loved to have seen the night sky above that wheel there during the night. I was humbled and honoured to step upon this Holy ground which I knew my Native ancestors had done so long before me. It brought me closer to them and their ways of Honouring Mother Earth and our connections with those ancient ones of the skies above us. As is Above, so is Below.

what's with the past tense ("viewed") in the description? don't people STILL view the human journey as a series of cycles of life?
just making sure we don't forget that Indian cultures are VERY alive today!!
