The North in spiritual terms suggests the winter, a time for old age and reflection. The Archangel is normally Uriel, administrator of Peace, but sometimes Ariel, Keeper of Wisdom. We are looking towards night-time and rest and the right to use the wisdom we have accrued. The magical element is Earth and the color white. There is often the completion of a cycle associated with dreams of the North. When we dream specifically of the North, we are searching for patience and understanding. We need firm foundations.
