It was believed in ancient times that celestial bodies influence human affairs and natural occurrences based on their positions relative to the Sun. These positions were studied by the people for weather predictions especially for agricultural purposes and interpretation of human nature. This practice gave birth to astrology and the people who study it are astrologers.
History of Astrology
It was believed that the celestial objects and planets had powers which influenced the human nature at the time of birth based on their position in the sky. Evidence shows that astrological practices were common and lunar cycles were noted since human started to analyze and measure the position of stars, the moon and the Sun.
The first organized astrology, known as Babylonian Astrology, recorded in the history dates back to 2nd millennium B.C when it was used for predicting the seasonal shifts and interpreting the celestial cycles for divine communications such as war, natural disasters and other human affairs. After its success, it was then used as a counsel for emperors and kings.
Hellenistic Astrology was practiced in Hellenistic period in the Mediterranean region, particularly in Egypt. Its origin dates back to 1st century B.C and was practiced until 7th century C.E. The Hellenistic Astrology mixed Babylonian Astrology with Decani Astrology to create horoscopic astrology. When Alexander the Great conquered Asia, astrology was brought to Greece and Rome from where it was spread to Islamic scholars. The Hellenistic astrology was then translated into Arabic and Persian by the Muslims. These Arabic texts were then imported to Europe in 12th century and were translated into Latin.
It is based on Hellenistic & Babylonian Astrology and is mostly horoscopic astrology based on horoscope building for an exact moment in person’s life, say his birth, in which several celestial bodies have influence based on their position relative to the Sun. Western Astrology is considered a pseudoscientific concept because it failed to generate predictions under scientific observation and tests.
In Western Astrology 12 zodiacs are used to determine the human nature and the effects based on the position of planets and stars.
