Astrology simplified. What is Astrology?
Astrology simply interprets what is going on in the sky. It is an assessment of the stars, planets and their effects on humans and the earth.
It is said that the sun, moon and planets play a part in one’s character and overall life.
I research that the first astrological omens were recorded from Mesopotamia between 3000 and 2000 BC.
There are written Babylonian examples from the 17th century BC about the planets movements and theories astrologist made according to these observations.
The zodiac was created by naming the largest constellations and dividing it into twelve sections, which today we know as our 12 signs of the zodiac.
Did you know the word astrology is derived from the Greek words astron meaning star and logos which means word.
Uses of astrology
Discovering the stars and planets can be fun, some people use astrology to determine the sex of their baby. There are 6 male and 6 female astrology signs and according to where the moon is placed when the baby is conceived, astrology can determine the sex. Another personal use is to find the love compatibility of star signs. Although astrology has more useful purposes, like how the planets affect your star sign as well as their astrological meaning.
