Workbook Page for Sun Bear Medicine Wheel

This is NOT the Medicine Wheel of any Native Nation (Tribe),
but comes from a Vision given to Sun Bear by Grandfather.

This is the special Medicine Wheel given to Sun Bear, with much ancient Medicine Wheel knowledge. Learning, working with and meditating with this Medicine Wheel has brought many people to a closer connection with All Our Relations, and with the Father of all fathers, our Creator. (Sun Bear's Vision from Medicine Wheel: Earth Astrology by Sun Bear and Wabun Wind.)
There are 36 Stones in this Wheel. The first one, in the very center, is for Creator and in honor of Creator.

Please look at the Diagram above and at the Stone Medicine Wheel in the border to the left. Can you see that there are SEVEN Stones in that inner Circle around the central Stone for Creator??
There are SEVEN pages, for these seven Center Circle Stones: Father Sun, Mother Earth, Grandmother Moon, Thunderbird, Turtle, Butterfly, and Frog.
Start with:  In The Beginning (click here) , the page for the Central Stone (for Creator) and "travel" the Wheel just as if you were walking around it to each Stone, to learn from the Spirits who are honored and represented by that Stone. We only go forward around the Wheel. You can "travel" the complete Wheel, going forward, or return to this Diagram of Wheel page, or to the Main page.

The next four Stones after these Inner Circle seven are the Spirit Keeper of the directions Stones; one at each of the four cardinal directions: Wabun of the East, Shawnodese of the South, Mudjekeewis of the West, and Waboose of the North. These names (variable spellings) have been known here on Turtle Island for who knows how long a time; very ancient. Please see Ch. II - Four Winds, part of a longer poem published in 1855, based on American Indian legends.
The above diagram shows all 36 stone positions in the Sun Bear Medicine Wheel.

There are three Moons in each direction quadrant of the Wheel, under the guidance and influence of the Spirit Keeper for that direction. Each one also has its own "totems", whose spirits will assist as you walk your Circle of Life, if you let them. Please click on the Moon Name below to find out more about your totems and what they can teach you. You will also discover a picture of a beautiful painting kindly supplied by The Bear Tribe. (Established by Sun Bear to spread knowledge of the Medicine Wheel)

The beautiful paintings and poetry are worth the trip to the Moon pages.

Each one has certain "gifts" to aid us as we walk the Circle of Life, and to help us reach the Center and Oneness. These stones are for these gifts and make a "path" from a Spirit Keeper to Creator. Gifts or path listed below (outside to center)

Placement =
The Eastern Path = Clarity Wisdom Illumination

New Information by Al Staunton, Adelaide, Australia

"After reading Earth Astrology I realized that it being based on the seasons of the northern hemisphere and myself being born and living in the southern hemisphere, it needed to be adapted to bring it into alignment with our southern seasons. This is my interpretation of Earth Astrology adapted for the southern hemisphere. For myself it certainly became more relevant once I made the adjustment and checked it against my birth date. Use the adjusted chart in conjuction with the book and you to will find that it will work for you."    Click Here for Al's Medicine Wheel page.

    Personal Note: I attended the October, 1999 Women's Gathering in Florida sponsored by West Winds. We all had an absolutely wonderful time, as well as a deeply spiritual experience connecting with each other, all our relations, and our ancestors. Wind Daughter radiates love and has a true talent for facilitating these kind of experiences. We talked and laughed and prayed and sang and danced; and were reluctant to leave and return to the mundane world. (Page designed by Star Spider Dancing)
