The Babylonians are credited with the creation of astrology, which is the study of how stars and spatial movements are taken to have an effect on humanity and the Earth. The idea quickly spread to Greeks, Romans, Arabs, and the rest of the world. The zodiacs, however, are believed to have been developed by ancient Egyptians before reaching the Babylonians. Early astrologers assigned constellations to the twelve lunar cycles that it took for the sun to return to its original position. These constellations are associated with animals and people and align with the seasons. Additionally, the signs are subdivided into four groups: the fire signs, which include Aries, Sagittarius, and Leo, the water signs, which are Cancer, Scorpio, and Pisces, the air signs, including Libra, Aquarius, and Gemini, and the earth signs, which are Capricorn, Taurus, and Virgo. In recent years, a conspiracy has spread of a thirteenth zodiac sign, Ophiuchus, which called a lot of attention to the topic. The traits of the zodiac signs also pique the interest of people who are eager to learn what their sign says about them, which increases the popularity of the signs.

Traits of the signs:

  • The zodiac sign Aries is defined as being courageous, optimistic, and independent. Negative traits of the sign include being impatient, vain, and egocentric.
  • People whose sign is Taurus are often reliable and ambitious. However, they may also show laziness and stubbornness in addition to being materialistic.
