There is some evidence by way of drawings on cave walls that suggest humans have had an interest in astrology for over 20,000 years. Clearly, we've gone all in on this sort of thing. And even with today's modern science, you can at least understand and appreciate how and why our ancient ancestors might have thought the stars were there to guide them.
Imagine looking up at a crystal clear night sky in a time before we even knew how to build things from stone or metal, and seeing the universe laid out before you. It changed with the seasons and brought forth eclipses and meteors and lightning and rain. The sky was a powerful part of your universe back in the day.
As astrology evolved, so too did the way we understand the stars. We saw patterns in the form of constellations and gave them names. They took on the aspect of animals, and we gave people born at certain times of year those qualities. And then we got all the way up to right here and right now at this very moment with you about to find out which of those animals is the best match for you. All of history lead you to this moment! Now take the quiz!
