Zodiac interesting facts

November 25, 2009 | In: Science facts


The origin of astrology is thought to begin with the ancient Babylonians two centuries before the birth of Christ.

The Zodiac was originally a natural agricultural calendar that dated the sowing of crops, harvesting, etc. by the rising and setting of the stars (especially Sirius), and the Pleiades or other recognisable constellations.

The first areas of the world that astrology spread to were China, India and Greece.

Astrology is thought to be both a science and an art. It claims scientific status because it requires mathematics and an understanding of Astronomy.

The original zodiac consisted of 18 signs, not twelve.
