What can you tell me about zodiac history?


Answer by  leilich (247)

Zodiac signs originated in Babylon in the 7th century B.C. Little has changed since the Egyptian astronomer Ptolemy westernized the system in the 2nd century A.D.

Historians credit the ancient Babylonian with developing the first zodiac in the 7th Century B.C., although individual constellations in the zodiac can be traced back to well before 1,000 B.C. Through history, many other cultures have adopted and sometimes modified the zodiac. The name "zodiac" means "circle of animals" from the ancient Greek.

The eternal movement of the stars was first discovered by the ancient Babylonians. They would refer to celestial bodies as "Zodia'akk".
