Zodiac overview

Have you ever had someone ask you “what’s your zodiac sign?” or ever wondered what a zodiac sign even is?

If we look into Western and Indian astrology, the emphasis is on space, and on the movement of the sun, moon, and planets in the sky through each of the zodiac signs (which is just a certain area in which the sun, moon, and planets are located during a certain month).

Each zodiac sign is related to a person’s birthday and “personality.” Each zodiac personality is different, and they also have different compatibilities with each other

Many people around the world love zodiac signs; seeing different compatibilities and using them to see how their week, month, or even year are going to be! But many people don’t know the history behind the signs. The word zodiac translates into “Circle of Animals,” and many believe that this word was created in ancient Egypt.

The signs are divided up into for different groups:

Fire signs, Water signs, Air Signs, and last but not least, Earth Signs. There are 12 signs in total, each one based off of the earth’s daily rotation, which is why some believe that different signs thrive more during different seasons. Astrology wasn’t only used for predicting your love life or your friendships, the Ancient Greeks used these signs to predict the weather patterns or even wars that might happen. These techniques were mainly used by people with higher power such as kings and emperors.

Many people may know that the zodiac table has also been taken and changed by China, using different animals to symbolize the years. These animals consist of: rat, dragon, snake, rabbit, tiger, horse, sheep, monkey, rooster, pig, dog, and ox.
