The origin of African astrology can be traced back to the development of the ancient African civilization. It is believed that the Africans were the most primitive civilization to have given birth to the science of stars, invented names of planets and discovered the study of astrology. The astrology of this particular culture is based on Geomancy. Geomancy is a form of divination with figures made by bones thrown down at random thus forming lines and arrows. Then the diviner organizes the lines and arrows into three storeys. The base floor is framed by using one to three of the bone pieces organized in a vertical line and the other two levels are formed by one or two lines. This gave rise to a twelve figure image and thus the formation of the African zodiac. The twelve zodiac signs of African astrology corresponding to the twelve bone figures are The Baobab Tree, The Wealth of Amber and Silver, The Family, Small Services to the Neighborhood, The Market, The Ancestor, The Judge, The Kola Nut, The Travelers, The Distance, The Child of the World and The Harvest in the Granary.
