Where the sun sets—death or the end of something; physical life; down-to-earth self.

The west is where the sun sets, and it represents the emotional qualities of life.

The west may indicate the essential or authentic self and the child within. It is the direction taken toward depth and the understanding of emotions.

If you are moving toward the west, you are ready for the introspection it takes to face and cope with your emotions. (See Compass, Four directions.)
