The beginnings of African astrology are found in the development of the ancient African civilizations. The current belief is that the Africans were the most primitive of the societies to have become interested in the stars, invented names for the planets and to have begun a study of astrology.
Geomancy is the root technique of African astrology. When bones are tossed down randomly and form lines and arrows this type of divination is called geomancy. The lines would then be organized into three levels. The base level uses a bone (one of the three bones thrown) in a vertical line, and the other two levels are then formed of one or two lines. In this way they create a 12 figure image, and through this technique the African zodiac was created.
As is the case in so many types of astrology, the Africans have 12 zodiac signs that are related to the 12 figures made out of the bones. The figures are: The Baobab Tree, The Wealth of Amber and Silver, The Family, Small Services to the Neighborhood, The Market, The Ancestor, The Judge, The Kola Nut, The Travelers, The Distance, The Child of the World and The Harvest in the Granary. When we look at the names of the figures these are all items that would be of great importance as to the early Africans. What emerging civilization is not always concerned with the harvest, wealth and the family?
In 2014 many of the same items will continue to be of great importance to the average African citizen. The land is not wealthy and the accumulation of necessaries can be difficult. It is interesting to see that the names assigned to the various zodiac aspects are all things that can be useful in a subsistence society. While wealth is growing on the African continent, there are still many who do without. Sometimes the casting of a fortune or horoscope can bring hope where there might be none.
If you are curious about your African zodiac placement, an excellent African zodiac reader will allow you to see which sign is yours. As an example, the sign for the traveler tells us that travelers generally reflect dual strength in that they are able to have permanent aspects and to accept changes. If a traveler leaves the neighborhood people are saddened and yet hopeful. Your arrival in a new place can make people a little nervous but you are often admired as well. Travelers are generally sensitive and easily touched by others feelings. The traveler is seen not just as a wonder but also as a messenger from the cosmos.
