This battle will be won!

Zodiac signs and horoscopes have been around for a long time. But 5000 years ago, astrologers were not asked for advice on matters of love.
Today, we read horoscopes to predict a happy love life or professional success. About 5000 years ago, astrologers and priests studied the constellations of the stars to determine a favorable date for sowing or to predict the outcome of battles.
In those days, of course, such services were reserved for rulers. Ordinary mortals had no access to them. Around 500 B.C., celestial experts from Mesopotamia and Greece finally worked closely together and divided the sun's orbit into twelve sectors of equal size: the signs of the zodiac.
At first the sidereal system was still used. But already from the fifth century on the tropical system was introduced in western astrology. The tropical zodiac is based on the four pivotal points in the annual cycle, regardless of the stars: in other words, the spring equinox, the summer solstice, the autumn equinox and the winter solstice.
The tropical zodiac serves the western horoscope as a measuring circuit. The sign of the zodiac in which the sun is positioned at the time of a person's birth is considered to be that person's star sign. Okay?
