Attracts is also a metaphor but one that shifts the point of focus. Orientation is an internal push whereas attraction denotes an external pull. One only seems more "natural" based on the intuition, or "feelings" of one as a native speaker within a present context. But that doesn't make it less metaphorical. The use of orient, however, is the more appropriate metaphor here because of the spatial as well as the fact that "oriens" from which the word derives is the cardinal directional term for the east. The metaphor thus does double duty here and the "orientalism" and spatial notion of orient as an internal push are evident and appropriate.
