Zodiac signs Origin

The story of the Zodiac signs and astrology, in general, is a very interesting one. The sun sign in western astrology originated from Babylonians. The current form of Astrology is somewhat similar to the one they invented. There is a saying, “as above, so below”, in Greek Astrology. It means that the positioning and movement of (“above”) celestial bodies are connected to the behaviours of (“below”) humans. According to records in the Babylonian calendar, there were 12 months in a year. Therefore, the twelve Zodiacs were assigned to each month. This was the origin of the now-known 12 Zodiacs.

The Element of Aries- Fire 

The year is a wheel of seasons where spring represents the first season. The first sun sign, Aries, denotes the beginning of the spring season. Aries governs the period from March 21 to April 19. While people get excited for the warm time of the year, this season is also ideal for planting and harvesting. Those born under this sign proudly wear their rusty nature; they believe in themselves and are confident. The fire sign blesses us with the gift of light and life. Capricorn and Aries compatibility
