African Astrology: The Most Primitive And Accurate Astrological Guide

African Astrology Astrological Guide

One of the most primitive forms of astrology, African Astrology originated in ancient African civilizations and is based on Geomancy. It is regarded as one of the most accurate forms of astrological guides. This post covers African astrology in detail and explains different African zodiac sign characteristics.

The primitive societies of Africa were one of the first groups of people to show a keen interest in the stars and planets, and they even named the celestial bodies while studying them for astrological purposes.

Geomancy – The primary technique used in African astrology is Geomancy, where three bones are randomly tossed on a flat surface. The resulting lines and arrows formed are organized into three levels. The base level is formed by a bone in a vertical line. The other two levels are formed by one or two lines. In this way, a twelve-figure image is created, each corresponding to a zodiac sign in African astrology.

Thus in African astrology, as in many other types of astrology, there are 12 zodiacs, each corresponding to one of the twelve figures created by the bones.

Here are the 12 zodiacs of African astrology:

1. The Baobob Tree
