The Signs of the Zodiac


As explained to you In the preceding chapter, the “Zodiac” is the zone of the heavens whereon are to be found the various omens or predictions which are to constitute a primary “Horoscope.”

The great importance ascribed to the Zodiac by all the astronomers of the most ancient times, is proved by the elaborate and artistic representations of it, which are still to be found In Eastern countries, such as China, India and Egypt. Our frontispiece pictures one of the most famous of these, hewn in stone.

The twelve equal divisions of the Zodiac are called “Signs”; each of them is itself divided into thirty “Degrees” or days, and every one was born in one of these degrees. The first thing to know, therefore, is the ancient meaning of each of the signs and the type peculiar to the human beings born under it. I shall give in this chapter a summary of the leading features belonging to the Signs. Before doing so, however, I will state that the Signs have been classed into four groups, or “Trinocracies,” according to their dominant characteristics.

Aries, Leo, Sagittarius, are “Fiery Signs.”
