Thanks Kerrie. Is that the constellation Ursus or Ursus minor or something? Is it a Russian configuration?
Yes, 360 degrees. The Feng Shui compass and Feng Shui's purpose to arrange things in such a manner that the arrangement benefits the whole also utilizes the Chinese form of astrology. I mean, Feng Shui and Astrology are both primarily about the effects of placement and arrangement. Chinese astrology uses twelve animals... each representing a 12 unit, 360 some-odd day year or the 360 degrees in a cycle. This form of astrology may have a bear represented in it. It has snakes, dragons, horses, monkees... etc...
I also remember hearing that they had 13 "houses" or constellations at one point. I can be mistaken, as well... I'll ask around.
