All magnets no matter how small have two opposing poles, a north pole and a south pole. The Earth also has a magnetic field and so it too has two poles, a North and a South Pole. The Earth also spins on its axis, the ends of this axis are also called Poles. There are two ends, a North and a South pole which are close to but not exactly in the same positions as the Earth's two magnetic poles.
