THE 12 SIGNS OF ASTROLOGY
Western astrology is a method of divination based on the idea that the positions of the constellations have various influences on us humans. By calculating the positions of celestial bodies, it is possible to predict the fortunes and personalities of individuals. On this site, we will focus on each of these constellations.
The origin of Western astrology dates back to Mesopotamia around 4000 B.C. Ancient people may have instinctively noticed that the positions and movements of celestial bodies have a deep connection with societal movements and people’s lives. The prototype of astrology, the circular horoscope, was already made before the Common Era. The theory of astrology was systematized and began to spread around 600 B.C.
Aries tends to move first and try to experience the unknown. As the first sign of the 12 zodiac signs, Aries corresponds to infancy in the human growth process.
Taurus tends to be stubborn about things that can be obtained with the five senses, things that can be seen. In terms of the human growth process, Taurus corresponds to the early childhood period. Taurus is a symbol of grounding.
