Many people believe that the zodiac has the power to affect our lives, and they look to it for guidance and direction. So it makes sense that this handsomely detailed zodiac wheel also incorporates elements of a compass.
The 12 astrological signs have their traditional circular arrangement around the perimeter to reflect the cyclic nature of the zodiac.
The inner circle is filled with an ornate eight-pointed star such as you might see on an old-fashioned compass to mark off the four cardinal points - North, South, East and West – as well as the four points in between.
The star is further divided again and again to create 32 arrow-like points where it meets the astrological signs. At the center of the star is a tiny swirling sun.
With all the crisp detailing and polished surfaces, the overall effect is dazzling and dynamic as light reflecting off it moves around the wheel in an almost mechanical way.
