To note, not all of them are found on the map. Some of them are obtained from completing side quests — the side quests you want to check for these are marked with the blue background and symbol. Some of these will not appear until certain main scenario quests, and side quests have been completed first. Even still, you should check your Compasses somewhat frequently while exploring to knock out all of the Currents found in that fashion.

1). Go to the "Travel" menu.
2). Select "Aether Currents."
3). Or type "/aethercurrent" into your log.
