The Babylonians were the ones who created the zodiac by dividing the sky into 4 regions based on the points of equality and the points of reversal. Each of the four regions is divided into three additional regions of 30 deg. each. This is basically how a zodiac sign is obtained of 360 deg. divided into 12 equal areas. Each of those areas is wheel luck.
The zodiac always attributes the zero point to Aries in the spring equinox. This is the Western zodiac also known as the Tropical Zodiac which always begins on the first day of spring. The zodiac is compatible with the seasons.
How did the zodiac signs appear in the starry sky
The ancient Babylonians called the constellations that appeared in the region of all luck as landmarks. The 12 constellations are not luck itself as many think. These constellations got the name based on the luck defined for that region and not the other way around.
In the beginning of astrology, no zodiac signs and names as we know them today have been attributed. These were simply different energies which were adapted to the position of the stars. The prototypes for the 12 zodiac signs were already attributed character traits long before they were given the names. It was these sages of ancient Greece who gave the zodiac names.
These stars above us that we can give each other as a love message, make up the constellations – the same constellations that were determined by the ancient cultures thousands of years ago. Interestingly and mysteriously, many of these groups are similar in different cultures, even those that have existed thousands of miles apart.
It is important to clarify that the following descriptions you will read describe the prototype of luck, regardless of which lucky star. We will describe luck as if it were a human being. This means that the same is true for people for whom the sun is not lucky, this is because the sun is not the only thing that defines the qualities of luck. The Sun, important as it may be, is not the only player here. The sign of the moon, the horizon, the sign of Venus and all the others also influence. They are all important for understanding the full picture of ourselves.
The only celestial body that can be seen with the naked eye (in excellent dark conditions) that is outside our galaxy is the nearby galaxy, the Andromeda Galaxy. In addition to the sun, moon, and stars that make up the groups, five planets can be seen with the naked eye, passing over the zodiac groups – the zodiac – at different times of the year. These are, in order of average brightness: Venus, Jupiter, Mars, Saturn and Mercury. These are the members of the solar system for us, the “neighborhood” closest to us and they do not emit light of their own but return the sunlight. There are two more planets, Uranus and Neptune, and a number of other dwarf planets that we cannot see with the naked eye.
The twelve constellations of the Western Zodiac
The zodiac signs are twelve constellations that form a kind of circular plane which surrounds the solar system – which is also more or less on the same plane. If we look from the earth towards the sun, moon and planets, we will see in their background the same constellations – these are the constellations. Thus the constellations of the Western zodiac are Aries, Taurus, Twins, Cancer, Lion, Virgo, Libra, Scorpio, Rainbow, Capricorn, Bucket, Fish.
Because of the Earth’s movement around the sun, it turns out that at any time of the year the sun hides some of the zodiac groups from us.
The zodiac signs seem to move around us – at the rate of progression of one zodiac sign each month, as Copernicus noted in the early Renaissance. The winter zodiac signs are seen in summer, and the summer zodiac signs are seen in winter. The signs of spring are seen in the fall and the signs of autumn in the spring. Hence, if you want to see your zodiac sign in the sky, it is best to do so about six months after your birthday, when the earth is on the other side of the sun and your sign appears all night and is in the sky at midnight.
Each of us contains in his astrological star map by date all 12 zodiac signs. Thus it is important to study the characteristics of all the zodiac signs. The stars in the zodiac sign express their influence according to the features of the zodiac where they are. In fact, luck affects the stars. The zodiac signs are like a window overlooking the stars, each passing star radiates its light on the window and affects it in a unique way. The sun that passes in front of Aries ‘window affects differently than the moon which passes in front of Aries’ window. Equally the effect of the moon on the window of an Aries is different from the effect of the moon on the window of an arc and so on.
Apparently the solar path in the zodiac corresponds to the twelve months of the year, but it is only almost accurate. Our calendar months do not rise on a par with the celestial months. They are not perfectly synchronized. This means that the sun changes to a new sign more or less every month, it is always in the date range of the 19th to the 23rd. You were born. But what determines luck is its location at the time of birth.
