Counterclockwise. Like everything else. And I do mean EVERYTHING. From atoms to galaxies, universal motion is counterclockwise.

Answer: the terms counterclockwise and clockwise came after the invention of the clock. If the hands turned in the opposite direction the term would still be described as clockwise. (duh:)
The direction is based on the shadow of the gnomon which moves from left to right on a sundial, which originated in the northern hemisphere.

(Sorry OP- carry on)

More to the point is that that most high-level mystical systems will inform you that that CLOCKWISE movement of things was an abomination created by the Church in the middle ages to DE-POWER the spiritualists.

It's a conspiracy theory ... don't tell anyone.

Just sayin'
