Babylonian astrology was the first organized system of astrology, arising in the 2nd millennium BC. The history of scholarly celestial divination is therefore generally reported to begin with late Old Babylonian texts (c. 1800 BC), continuing through the Middle Babylonian and Middle Assyrian periods (c. 1200 BC).
Astrology, as it’s known today, started 32,000 years ago, around 30,000 to 10,000 BC (further referred to as BCE – before common era ). There are cave paintings, rock carvings, and bones marked with lunar phases from this time. Though this is too far back to have exact data, archeologists believe this was a coping mechanism.
The oldest known horoscope chart is believed to date to 409 B. C. Alexander the Great conquers Babylon/Chaldea and the Greeks eventually start making advances in astrology, along with developments in medicine, geometry, mathematics, and philosophy. The modern names for planets and zodiac signs come from Greek literature.
