Who Invented Astrology

Who Invented Astrology

We all out familiar with astrology and some us even breathe it. But, has it ever occurred to you to do the research and find out how the whole idea came about.  Well, today I had the bright idea to research and find out who came up with the whole idea and I must say it is truly amazing to find out how it originated and then compare it to how far it has developed this day in time.

Many people think that the Greek are the ones who invented astrology but this is not true, unfortunately. The people who invented astrology are actually the Babylonians. Based on reports that have been discovered it seems as though the whole concept came into play around 1600 BC. However, back then when the concept was first developed they did not use it, as we do today, to find out how our day or week is supposed to go. Instead, they used astrology to determine whether or not there would be a famine, a war, or other things of that nature. However, it was used to determine what was in store for the king as well.

How Do The Greeks Come Into The Picture?

The Greeks come into the picture because basically they are the ones who came up with the idea of horoscopic astrology. So, we can thank them for all of the apps and things that we wake up to faithfully every day to find out what we can expect to happen.
