First of all, you should know that the African Astrology in one of the most primitive and most accurate forms of astrology, and it is based in Geomancy.
The beginnings of African astrology are found in the development of the ancient African civilizations. The current belief is that the Africans were the most primitive of the societies to have become interested in the stars, invented names for the planets and to have begun a study of astrology.
Geomancy is the root technique of African astrology. When bones are tossed down randomly and form lines and arrows this type of divination is called geomancy. The lines would then be organized into three levels. The base level uses a bone (one of the three bones thrown) in a vertical line, and the other two levels are then formed of one or two lines. In this way they create a 12 figure image, and through this technique the African zodiac was created.
As is the case in so many types of astrology, the Africans have 12 zodiac signs that are related to the 12 figures made out of the bones.
