Whether you are the horoscope fanatic or someone you know obsesses over horoscopes, the truth is we all know someone who believes in horoscopes. 

The history of horoscopes has a long and rich history. A horoscope is a forecast of a person’s future, typically including a delineation of character, based on relative positions of the stars and planets at the time of that person’s birth. 

Research has found that astrology originated in Babylon, with Babylonians developing their own horoscopes around 2,400 years ago. 300 years later astrology spread to the eastern Mediterranean, becoming widely popular in Egypt. With the Greeks in control of Egypt at the time, astrology is molded into the Greek style of astrology, which is essentially the modern style of astrology we know today.
