What is Egyptian Astrology?
In learning about Egyptian astrology, it’s important to understand that ancient astrology was not created by the Egyptians. It was first started by the Babylonians whom the Egyptians adopted their astrological system. Similar to Western astrology, Egyptian astrology is based on 12 constellations and within those 12 constellations, there are 36 decans for each constellation/zodiac sign. Each of the Egyptian decans has its own ruling planets which cover approximately 10 degrees of that particular sign/constellation. Each of the decans lasts for about 10 days which covers the whole 360 degrees of the astrological circle.Read More »
Traditional Egyptian Astrological Signs & Corresponding Dates
The following is an overview of the traditional Egyptian astrological signs and their corresponding dates based upon the decans. It is important to note that Egyptian astrology does not utilize Western symbols. Egyptian astrology utilizes the Egyptian gods and goddesses which correspond to applicable date ranges of the astrological decans. Some of these date ranges aren’t within a specified period like with Western astrology where the dates fall with a specified monthly period. Thus, it is possible for individuals who are born at different times of the year to have the same Egyptian god or goddess as their ruling zodiac sign.
You can locate your applicable Egyptian astrological sign by finding the month and day of your birth under the Egyptian god/goddess name. The corresponding Western zodiac sign is also included next to the applicable Egyptian god/goddess.
