Hi there! 

 

Astrology is a very interesting subject.
When I was studying and practising Yoga
I also engaged myself with the basics of astrology.
There is no doubt that certain human characteristics are
true as mentioned in the twelve signs of the zodiac.

Back in 8000 BC man in his primitive state lived in
dangerous
circumstances looking to the heavens for
directions to conduct 
his difficult life.

Not knowing anything else, he believed that the stars
were the
Gods who controlled everything happening
on earth.

Even today we believe that the Moon regulates certain
movements
in nature.

Awakenings 

 

Man then started noticing the big bright bodies
in the sky
we call Planets today:
Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter
and Saturn; 
which represented powerful Gods
in the ancient years.

 
Later on, these Gods and Planets formed what
we know as Astrology.

Since the very  ancient years (Ice Age), when
man started being
aware of the Moon until around
300 years ago, when the way of thinking
started
changing, Astronomy and Astrology were the same subject:

to predict the way distant forces influence our life on earth.

The History 

 

It all started with the Chaldeans who were
discerning mathematicians,
and later the
Babylonians and the Egyptians.

They all believed that the movements of the
planets could reveal
the future.

Greek astrology started around 250 BC by
a Babylonian astrologer.

During the next 400 years the Greeks adjusted the
original Chaldean 
astrology to fit the Greek traditions.

The Greeks found out how to calculate people’s destinies
based on
the time of their birth.
Together with the Greeks, the great Egyptian mathematician
and
astronomer Ptolemy established the Planets, Houses
and 
Signs of the zodiac as we know it today.

 

The Anatomy 

 

Since prehistoric times each sign of the zodiac
related to a specific area
of the body.
Later on they believed that through polarity
there was a relationship
between the signs and
the nervous system.

Also they believed that the planets were connected
with a specific part
of the body, as follows:

 

1)  The Sun     –  Fire     –  Leo            –  Rules the Heart, Spine, Back.

The above mentioned parts of the body are the most sensitive, and people
falling under the corresponding sign will mostly suffer from problems
relating to them.
