African astrology is a lot different from the ‘zodiac’ stuff we see more commonly. African astrology is thought to be far more accurate.

It is said that geomancy is very deeply rooted in African astrology which makes it all the more interesting. This is basically when bones (and other things) are tossed down randomly to form lines and arrows. They are then organized into different levels and this is from there interpreted into meaning.

With the African ‘zodiac’ signs there are also 12. These are related to the figures that were made from those bone tosses and so forth. Below I am going to go over each so looks for your birthday to see what your African astrological sign is and go from there to see what it holds for you.

Mine was chilling and yet empowering at the same time and I hope you have the same experience. These signs are a lot more complex than I thought they would be and hold far more for each of us than I feel our normal signs do. Did you connect with your African zodiac sign?

Small Services to the Neighborhood (April 5th-May 4th)

People born under this sign are friendly and good at making sure they are able to carry on. They are able to remain calm in even the most intense situations but are not good at making decisions. They often procrastinate far too much.

The Market (May 5th-June 4th)

People born under this sign are very peace guided and tend to avoid danger as best they can. They do not like conflict or confrontation.

They are the kind of people who start off being liked and by the end of the day no one wants to be around them.

The Travelers (September 4th-October 3rd)

People born under this sign are often misunderstood. They are not able to trust as easily as they should be and it puts them at a disadvantage.
