THE 24 DIRECTIONS
The 24 directions (also known as the 24 mountains) are derived
from the division of the 8 cardinal directions of the compass into a
set of 3 sub-directions. Each of the sub-directions constitutes a
degree in the compass. Each of the sub-directions in turn
represents an element and animal sign. In Chinese astrology and
Feng Shui, the 8 cardinal directions take their meaning from the 8
trigrams or  Pa Kua and the elements associated with it. The animal
signs are only symbolism used to represent the phases of Qi (or
Life force) metaphorically and not literally.
