African Horoscope


African Horoscope

The African horoscope, like the Western horoscope, is determined by the day of birth of the individual and can be traced back to pre-historic times with primitive African cultures being aware of the science of stars and planets. Like modern day astrology, they made a link between the movements of those stars and planets and the destiny of individuals. The Egyptians in particular were drawn to astrology and one tribe from there fled religious persecution and settled in modern day Mali. They developed a religion based on the Sirius star system. What was remarkable about this was that Sirius B was not even discovered until 1970, whereas the Dogon tribe had been aware of its existence for thousands of years. How could they have possessed this forbidden knowledge? Their legends claim they received this knowledge from the Nommos who visited Earth from a planet orbiting Sirius's companion star.

African horoscope signs are read by the throwing of bones that form lines and arrows. The tracing made by these lines/arrows is organized by the diviner in three stories. The lower floor of the geomantic figures can be made by one to three vertical lines. For the two other levels (median and superior) the choice is binary, one or two lines. Thus, the total possible for the three levels of figures is twelve (3x2x2). Each of them has a name corresponding to the precise combination of figures as drawn on each individual profile.
