The 12 Zodiac Signs and Why You Should Learn Astrology (Part One) – culticgem
Even though many cultures around the globe use astrology, there are dozens of interpretations. Each culture has its own astrology system and symbols. Astrology is one of the oldest fields of science. Astrology dates back to the time of ancient African tribes. Even today, you can find isolated tribes in Africa that have astrology as a major part of their culture. Unfortunately, many of the ancient African astrology systems have been lost, but there are still some that you can learn. Before we explore the zodiac signs of the most popular African astrology system, there is a term that you must understand.
The Geomancy technique is the basis of African astrology. In this technique, three bones, along with lines and arrows, are placed on the ground. The elements are combined in a way where there are twelve spaces. Each space has an African zodiac sign placed in it. Here is the list of the African zodiac signs.
The Baobab Tree
The first zodiac sign in African astrology is the Baobab tree. If you were born on or between January 4th to February 3rd, then your zodiac sign is the Baobab tree. The lucky day of people with the Baobab tree zodiac sign is Thursday. In African astrology, each zodiac sign is associated with a strongest sense and the most sensitive body part. This zodiac sign corresponds to the liver and gallbladder. The sense of smell is associated with this zodiac sign and the element is air.
Baobabs are comfortable with themselves and know their interests, goals, and passion. If they didn’t figure these out yet, then they won’t have a difficult time discovering the answer. Baobabs often discover that they are good at business practices. A Business owner, entrepreneur, or a business advisor is a suitable career that fits the strengths of a Baobab. If you work for a Baobab you’ll find that they are easygoing and enjoy laughing.
Even though Baobabs seem like they have life figured out, they have some weaknesses. If they are in a situation where they are under pressure, they will get anxiety, which can cause them to panic and make the wrong decision. This can be a serious problem in business. Another weakness is that Baobabs often have a hard time punishing people that are working for them. This can lead to their employees taking advantage of them.
The Wealth of Amber and Silver
If you were born on or between February 4th to March 5th, then your zodiac sign is the Wealth of Amber and Silver. If this is your zodiac sign, then you should look forward to Wednesday, because that is your lucky day. This sign is associated with your nervous system. The element of this sign is air. The sense of sight is associated with this zodiac sign.
People that are born under this sign are often in tune with their emotions. When they decide on something, they often go by how they feel, so they have strong intuition. Even if others say that they should take their time and think about their decision, they use their intuition anyway and are rarely disappointed with the results. People that are born with this sign make excellent artists and motivational speakers because they can use their powerful emotions to shape people’s mind. They are often talkative and rarely have trouble making friends.
Even though having strong emotions has its benefits, it definitely has its drawbacks. One weakness is that if you have a strong attachment to your emotions, you might not be willing to listen to other people’s ideas. This can cause you to miss out on opportunities to improve your life and accomplish your goals. Saying things you regret is another weakness that strong emotions can lead to. While it is good to say what is on your mind, it is important to make sure that you spread your message in a way that you won’t regret.
If you were born on or between March 6th and April 4th, then you were born under the Family zodiac sign. Tuesday is the lucky day of the family zodiac sign. The lungs are associated with this sign. Their strongest sense is smell. Family falls under the element of earth.
People that are born under this sign are reserved, but they are also selfless. If you get to know someone that was born under the Family zodiac sign, then you shouldn’t be surprised when they share some of their belongings with you. When someone under the Family zodiac sign becomes successful, he wants to see his business partners grow with him. A good job for a Family zodiac is a consultant, life coach, or an advisor because they enjoy sharing knowledge and wisdom to help others. If you are friends with a Family zodiac, it must be good to know that you have someone to rely on when you need help.
Selflessness is a trait that takes great discipline and it has a positive impact on the lives of others and your own. The truth is that selflessness without boundaries can have severe, negative consequences. For example, you don’t want to be so selfless that your peers feel they can take advantage of you. It is important to find out if someone is only being your friend to get something that they want from you, and they wouldn’t return the favor if one day you need help. If you are a family zodiac suffering from this weakness, make sure that you place boundaries on your selflessness.
Small Services to the Neighborhood
If you were born on or between April 5th and May 4th, then you were born under the Small Services to the Neighborhood zodiac sign. Saturday is the lucky day of this sign. Anyone that was born under this sign has Earth as their element. People in this zodiac group are known for their sense of hearing. The body part that corresponds to this zodiac sign is the medullary.
Strength is a trait that people born under this sign are lucky to have. When people of this sign go through a difficult trial in their life, they refuse to give up. Instead of giving up, they focus on their goal and continue to push through their problems, no matter how difficult it seems to be. When others see how they deal with their struggling lives, they see them as dependable and strong. Managers, business owners, and operators are good occupations for this zodiac sign because they have the drive, dependability, and strength to lead a team to accomplish a goal.
Even though it seems like this sign is perfect, there are still potential weaknesses that you have to be aware of if you are a member of this zodiac group. Just because you have the drive to accomplish a goal, no matter how long it takes, doesn’t mean that you don’t have trouble making decisions. Some people of this sign put off a project for a long time. They know they are going to reach their goal one day, but they take a long time to make a decision which delays their project. Don’t get me wrong. Being patient and waiting to make a move to give yourself time to decide is a wise thing to do. The problem is that if you do this too often or too long, you may never move forward on your journey. Don’t wait a hundred years to make the perfect decision. Instead, wait for a shorter length of time and make the best decision possible.
If you were born on or between May 5th and June 4th, then you belong to the Market zodiac sign group. The lucky day of this zodiac sign is Sunday. This zodiac sign is under the element of fire. The strongest sense of a Market zodiac is their sense of touch. Veins and the throat are associated with the Market zodiac group.
People that are part of the Market zodiac group are known for positive thinking and humanitarian actions. They are likely to become missionaries or work for a charity. Even though they fill their life with positive thinking and actions, that doesn’t mean that they expect their lives and the lives of those around them to be perfect. They are ready for a struggle. They don’t fear opposition even if their lives are threatened.
A weakness that people of the Market zodiac sign group often have is that they overthink things and are too dramatic. This can lead to stress and anxiety attacks. The good news is that sometimes their positive thinking eventually calms them down. Market zodiacs often make many friends, however, similar to the Family zodiacs, they have to make sure that people don’t take advantage of their kindness. Make sure that you choose your friends wisely.
