The outer circle and 4 posts come from Native American culture. The circle represents the cycle of life and the posts the 4 directions. North, South, East, West, each corresponding to a season and a type of teaching. North=Winter-sadness/defeat. East=Spring-victory/success. South=Summer-peace/serenity. West=Autumn-death/closure. The fire in the center for me represents our Spirit / or the part of us that never dies no matter what is thrown our way. To me it’s a strong symbol of inner strength, perseverance and the beauty of the human SPIRIT.
