Egyptian astrology was one of the earliest forms of astrology. The Egyptians were fascinated by the stars and the planets and felt that they could help understand human beings better. The Gods and Goddesses held an important place in the lives of the Egyptians. The Egyptian zodiac comprises of twelve signs, each named after a particular god. The Egyptians felt that the gods influenced people in each and every aspect.
Though the ancient Egyptians had a tremendous knowledge of the twelve zodiac signs, they did not actually invent them; it is a popular belief that the zodiac signs go to the credit of ancient Babylonians, while Egyptians leaned the signs from the Greeks during the famed Ptolemaic period.
