According to Wikipedia does the division of the ecliptic into the zodiacal signs originate in Babylonian astronomy during the first half of the 1st millennium BC, likely during Median/"Neo-Babylonian" times (7th century BC).
In both astrology and historical astronomy, the zodiac is a circle of twelve 30° divisions of celestial longitude that are centered upon the ecliptic: the apparent path of the Sun across the celestial sphere over the course of the year .
Now we know the zodiak mainly for the use of creating horoscopes. Who among us doesn't have been looking for his or her horoscope for that particular week? Once in a while I did! But it was always amusing. Sometimes it said something like:"Don't wear red this week. It might be dangerous". I still don't know why ...Red becomes me and there were no bulls around...Oh, and my sign is Sagitarius.
Here are a few questions:
1 What are the typical characteristics of people of your sign?
2 Do you believe your life is influenced in any way by your star sign ?
3 Do you regularly read your horoscope? If not, why not?
