Though horoscopes offer projections focused on passaging stars, the world is rotating, not they are crucial to be conscious. The explanation they are rotating at night and all year round is because the planet rotates around its axis and turns around the Sun. While astrology, which seeks answers and signs predictions through the movement of celestial bodies, is not without merit, there is a long history of people looking to the loadstar to plan their lives. Farmers used the sky as a calendar when they saw signs of the impending annual flooding of the Nile.
The people used the sky as a source of mystical orientation, and travelers used it, along with a compass, to follow the loadstar and know where to go, and to orient themselves. Historians and astronomers know how this thinking became so popular today, but it is unclear exactly what became of it and when. They look to the sky to understand what is happening on the ground and why our fellow human beings behave in a certain way.
We don’t know who first came up to look at things in nature and exploring the influence of man, says Stevens. The loadstars are places people have turned to the years to find answers, but not always for the right reasons. It is astrology, and it takes up happiness – of storytelling, where you can look at and study things in nature, such as reading tea leaves. Cave art shows that objects can be impregnated and it can affect objects in a kind of supernatural way. If you appease the spirit forms, you have a successful hunt, all as astrology.
The Sumerians and Babylonians seem to have practiced divination practices, for example, by looking for spots in the liver and intestines of animals. They have an understanding that watching planets and loadstar can be traced back to the Table of Venus and obey the path of the gods in the heavens. The ancient Egyptians brought with them star patterns that originated from constellations in which the sun seemed to move at certain seasons. Noble regarded eclipses and sunspots as signs less suited to other people’s lives. There are tablets from the first millennium BC that trace the movement of Venus, known as Babylonian planetary phenomena. You believe that the idea was born when Alexander the Great conquered Egypt in 330 BC and then again in the second millennium BC.
There must have many conversations that gave the Greeks prophesying the planets, Odenwald said. The Greeks have worked out rules for how this could work and have delved deeply into mathematics and logic. This is how NASA describes the logic and how it led to the birth of the zodiac signs we know today. Imagine you draw a straight line through your solar system, where there is loadstar, and then imagine the Earth in its orbit around the Sun. This imaginary line would spin and point to another star for a complete journey around our sun. Supposedly, it is in the imaginary flat disk that sweeps this imaginary line are the zodiac. The constellations of the zodiac are a collection of stars, each of which has its own unique sign or constellation.
In 1500 BC, the Babylonians also had split the zodiac into 12 equal signs — and had the same constellations as the prominent ones of today, such as Le Grand Twin, the Lion, the scales. Astronomer Ptolemy, the author of the Tribbles, which became a central book in the tradition of Western astrology, popularized the twelfth sign. The entire notion that 12 signs are 30 degrees wide around the zodiac modifiable by Ptolemy, and [that] the sun rotated constantly in the year’s course, says Odenwald. Even the word zodiac, according to the English Dictionary of Oxford, derives from the Greek definition, from a definition for the sculptured animal figure, they mention the order.
However, since then the Planet has rotated on its axis, so the dates for identifying the symbols do not really correlate with the constellations of the history that give them their name of signs. The chronology has pushed one sign westward. This means the dates of zodiac signs, based on the mathematical division of the Year, correspond practically today to sunshine in the constellations of the signs the following.
