Come one, come all – the crystal ball is ready to tell your future. But do you know what it all means? Today, right here, right now, I am about to give you some background so you can interpret some of my later articles. So, let’s get to it – Zodiac style.

The 12 sections of the Zodiac wheel are commonly thought to originate from the Greeks, who inherited the practice from the Mesopotamians, who got the idea from the Sumerians. Today, and in the past, it was used to determine certain characteristics of each person and is usually referred to as astrology.

The houses of the Zodiac follow the path of the sun and can be called “sun signs.” Today, I will leave you with a little bit of background information that will help you find your sign and a little bit more about what the sign is typically associated with.

After you find your sign, you can actually take a look at what element is associated with your sign!
