While you most likely know a good bit about your ‘zodiac sign’ overall chances are you haven’t even heard of the Egyptian zodiac itself. This is nothing like what you’d expect and doesn’t link up with your Sun sign in the ways you would expect it to.
The Egyptian horoscope stems from one of the oldest calendars, period. It is more-so based on the mythology of ancient Egypt and gods present through their culture. While it does still consist of 12 signs, those signs are quite different from what you might be used to.
In the Egyptian horoscope, the entire annual cycle was divided into small periods of time. Each of them was governed by a deity who not only predetermined the life of a person but also gave him features of his own character, bestowed secret knowledge, revealed the riddles of controlling supernatural processes. The Egyptian Zodiac includes 12 signs: Nile, Amon-Ra, Mut, Geb, Osiris, Isis, Toth, Horus, Anubis, Seth, Bastet, Sekhmet. Each sign, except the Nile, symbolizes the Egyptian god or goddess.
The character of the deity, by whose name the sign was named, was also the character of man. The behavior of man, his features and skills were reflected in the properties of the ruling sign of God.
Below I am going to go over each of these different signs and break down what they can reveal to us about you as a person. While they might not be as well-known as other means of getting to know yourself, they can work wonders in regards. With the exception of The Nile, these are all very powerful gods and being able to relate back to them is mind-blowing.
