The History of the Zodiac

ZODIAC : (ˈzōdēˌak/ ) noun- a belt of the heavens within about 8° either side of the ecliptic, including all apparent positions of the sun, moon, and most familiar planets. It is divided into twelve equal divisions or signs (Aries, Taurus, Gemini, Cancer, Leo, Virgo, Libra, Scorpio, Sagittarius, Capricorn, Aquarius, Pisces). (ASTROLOGY)

So, we know that our birth sign is from the Zodiac and many of us probably knew that it had something to do with outer space and it's mystical stars and planets and maybe even ancient God's and creatures? I am a believer of all things possible, I can somewhat call myself a philosopher because I love to study about our history and evolution. I've had serious question's and theories from psychology, the arts, the planets, ancient times and where our facts came from. My favorite subject to read and learn about is human studies/ conditions. So for those reasons, I love to share new information that I've learned and passing it on. I want to change lives by inspiring others to get curious and want an education for their own well being and to enrich the well being of an improved education system for the next century of students. With that being said, I wanted to know where my horoscope came from. Yes, they still exist and I still read my daily horoscope and sometimes it's freaks me out because of it's accuracy and other time's I'm just easily humored by it. So naturally, the philosopher in me wanted the answers while the writer in me decided that my new information would make for a fun new topic.

So where exactly do all of the different sign's come from and how does the Zodiac work?

I was fascinated by the facts from my own research that shows Astrology (the 12 costellations) orignated in Sumeria (ancient history shows the Southern region of Mesopotomia now "Iraq" was considered the cradle of civiliazation.) The first original inscribed version of the Zodiac signs calendar came from the Babylonian era (The Shining Herd') at about 1,370 BC. Meaning, it's over 17,000 years old and from the 13th Century, 2nd millenium BC.

The Sun-Sign Astrology Known As The Zodiac

The reason that astrologers also call it the Sun-Sign is because of how the Earth orbits around the Sun throughout the year and along a line fixated by the Stars. The line is called the Ecliptic, and the band that expands within 8 degrees from either side is the Zodiac. It's divided by 12 equal parts which make up the signs of the calendar and are named after a constellation in the sky.



Mesopotomia was located in the Southern area now known as Iran (Zodiac Signs Originated in 1,370 BC)

The 12 Zodiac Signs

I had some fun with this part of my research. Based on all the variety of information I collected, I noticed there were so many different descriptions for each sign that I decided to chose my own to best describe what I think fits each signs personality traits. So, please don't hate me I'm just going on what I see from the people I know and knowing their birthdates. Sorry in advance family and friends if you don't agree, it's just for fun and you can leave me a comment about my personailty traits. My list below, indates the 12 birth months and each sign with a characteristic personality trait. I've chosen 2 good traits that you were destined to inherit and 2 negative traits that you were destined to deal with.

The Horoscope

Hor·o·scope (ˈhôrəˌskōp) noun: a forecast of a person's future, typically including a delineation of character and circumstances, based on the relative positions of the stars and planets at the time of that person's birth. A short forecast for people born under a particular sign, especially as published in a newspaper or magazine. A birth chart.(ASTROLOGY)

I couldn't have said it better myself, thats a great defintion of a Horoscope provided by Google.The reason I like reading my daily horoscope is to prepare myself for the bad days I was destined to have. I'm just kidding, that's not the real reason at all. I started reading my horoscope in middle school when we learned how to read a newspaper and it was my favorite section to read besides the movie section. It's funny and entertaining to me and I like a good laugh to start my day off right and they make me happy when a good day is predicted. My horoscope variates from realistic at 70 % and the rest is for my enjoyment and humor. There are times where my horoscope is right on the nose, which stuns me when this happens. That's the exciting part about it and the whole reason I needed to know how the heck did they know that would happen to me?

LIBRA IN 2015

2015 - It's a year full of fire and passion, and we get to choose how that passion is applied. If we don't participate, the world won't wait around for us. This year, we get to zero in on our personal passions and bring them closer to fulfillment.

If stressed or overburdened, this is your year to relax and work from a calmer, internally quiet place. All desire is not loud and hyperactive.

Focus on those few things that most deeply touch your heart and soul, pace yourself, and patiently address them every day. That's passionate living, too.

Is it your health, or better relationships, or ambitious career designs, or some humane or public service? Numerologically, 2015 is an 8-Year, with 8 signifying complete manifestation in the physical world. We can really make things happen in 2015!

I underlined the powerful truth that my year predicted for me. Scary, in the beginning of this year because I didn't know what this meant. I needed to change but how? Today i'm happier, healthier, calmer, humble, passionate and focusing on building my career, continuing my education, fixing broken relationships, staying active and healthy after almost losing my life from a serious health issue last year, working with others on fund-raisers and causes to help others, i'm living a dream that I always wanted as a little girl to do something I love that's fun, creative and passionate and I became a writer, I realized my true inner strength this year and decided that it was time to live my with a purpose and to be a better mother to my 2 amazing kids which I've become from with all these positive changes that I made just this year.- Madonna Bugayong

Daily Love Horoscope

October 8, 2015- You are always ready to help out those who are less fortunate than yourself. Today, while attending some kind of voluntary program or helping those in need, you may meet the person of your dreams. The cosmos suggests that this may not be the hottest person at the disco, but they will surely have the biggest heart in town. You will be impressed by their genuine kindness.

The first sentence is true. But the rest I couldn't relate to, but it was funny.- Madonna Bugayong



Chinese Astrology and Signs

The Chinese Zodiac- (The Rat ) 2015 Is year of the Wood Goat

The Year of the Wood Goat, February 19, 2015 to February 7, 2016, helps witty but cautious Rat break free in important new directions. This New Year may begin as a bumpy ride. The powerful March 20 Total Eclipse asks you to surrender what no longer works in your life. The added stability of Wood helps Rats feel safe but daring all at once. Practicality and creativity intertwine in potent synergy. Goat emphasizes greater trust and cooperation to empower careful, independent Rat. Embracing change helps you soar on the wings of your own ingenuity. Who says rats can't fly?

Very accurate as usual my zodiacs never dissapoint me.

I push myself and I work so hard to show creativity, resourceful information and relatable truth when I write because when I'm finished I feel empowered, I feel accomplished and I feel compassionate knowing it may help enhance someone's optimism from reading something that I poored my heart into.- Madonna Bugayong
