Fans of the mainstream Sun Sign horoscopes you find in the papers may not realise that there is such a wide range of astrological thought, so let’s go on a star studied journey to visit some ancient forms of astrology that exist in other cultures – no you won’t need a visa or to exchange your cash. First stop – China.

With their penchant for inventing things as varied as paper, printing, the compass, gunpowder and, well, just about everything else, it is no surprise that the Chinese developed their own form of astrology too. The actual date of the origin of Chinese astrology is not known, however there are a number of legends surrounding its birth and development. Legend has it that in 2,600BC, the Yellow Emperor introduced the first cycle of the zodiac to record the Chinese Lunar New Year. Over time Chinese astrology developed 10 heavenly stems and 12 earthly branches by combining one stem and one branch; the stems and branches are used to indicate a specific hour, date and year. The 12 earthly branches correspond to the number of months in a year and hours in a day with a complete cycle taking 60 years. Thus most people will experience the exact same year again only rarely in a lifetime. Westerners who are interested in astrology soon realise that every Chinese year is associated with an animal and that any given animal reappears on a 12 yearly cycle. The animals in Chinese astrology are the; rat, ox, tiger, rabbit, dragon, snake, horse, sheep, monkey, rooster, dog and pig. Why were these animals chosen? There are a couple of legends which explain this. According to one story, Buddha invited all the animal kingdom to a meeting to ascertain how to restore order in the world, only the rat, ox, tiger, rabbit, dragon, snake, horse, sheep, monkey, rooster, dog and pig attended, thus these animals came to represent the Chinese zodiac cycle. The order of the cycle was decided by the order in which each creature arrived, the rat turned up first followed by the ox with the tardy pig appearing last. A different legend explains why there is no cat in the Chinese calendar. Buddha promised to designate the first 12 animals as the zodiac signs in order of appearance at the meeting. So the cat and the rat agreed that whoever woke first that day would wake the other. The rat ratted on the deal (well, it was a rat) and arrived at the meeting first, the remaining animals soon followed. When the cat awoke it ran to the meeting, but it was too late, the meeting was over and it lost its opportunity to become a member of the zodiac. According to legend, this is why cats hunt rats. The Chinese use astrology to discover someone’s age without being too direct. Instead of asking how old a person is, the Chinese often ask about his or her animal sign, which places a person within the 12 year cycle. Time to pack our bags and head to India.

The history of Indian astrology is very ancient and as complex as the patterns on an Indian vase. So here is a simple explanation of its long history. Indian astrology is based on the Vedic culture which is at least 5000 years old. The Vedas are a group of ancient Hindu texts one of which contains the Jyotish Vedanga which concerns itself with astrology. This tradition was maintained and developed by various Rsis (teachers or sages). The Rsis would act as teachers passing their knowledge to their disciples. One of these sages; Parasara Rsi combined the various teachings and produced a text known as the Brhad Parasara Hora Sastra which was passed on and developed into the Parasara School of astrology. Eventually other texts were written and these formed an astrological canon. Vedic astrology spread to the Babylonians via the Persians. From Babylon it travelled to the Greeks, Romans and Egyptians. With the rise of Islam the Arabs learned astrology from both the Greek and Vedic astrologers. There are many branches of Vedic astrology but the six main forms are: Gola; positional astronomy, Ganita; mathematical diagnostic tools for analysing the results of Gola Jataka which is natal astrology. Prasna; answering specific questions based upon the time the question is asked, Muhurta; selecting an auspicious time to start something and Nimitta which is concerned with omens and portents. Phew, no wonder Indian universities teach the subject at degree level. If you want to get the benefit from the world of astrology without traveling from your home or spending years at university, Horoscope Ace could be your passport to the future.

Horoscope Ace – Love

The Beatles pointed out All You Need is Love, and as the song and the film noted; Love is A Many Splendid Thing. What exactly do we even mean by ‘love’ anyway? We say we love ice cream, our family members, our closest friends and our partner, but of course we don’t mean this in the same way (although some notoriously sweet toothed Librans really do adore ice-cream). We talk about Love Horoscopes, but of course these can apply to our relationships with those dearest to us and not necessarily a romantic partner. So don’t despair if you are single and intend to stay so, a well written love horoscope like the one on the Horoscope Ace can still apply to you.

Let the Ancient Greeks explain. The Ancient Greeks had more than one word for love. There was the word ‘agape’, which we would think of as unconditional love. It is about being willing to sacrifice everything for the person you love and wanting nothing back in return – the sort of love parents feel when they hold their new baby. Agape is used by Christians to express the unconditional love of God for human beings. Then there is ‘phileo’ which is platonic love, it’s the love you feel for a friend. It is the type of love which is warm but not physical. Next comes, the rather unromantically name ‘storge’ again this can be applied to family members or friends, although it is a component of romantic love too. Storge is also unconditional and accepts the person who is loved for what they are. It is associated with commitment and sacrifice as well as making the loved and lover feel comfortable and secure. Lastly comes ‘eros’ this is romantic and exciting, it is that obsession you get early in relationships. It has a strong element of physical desire, but can burn too brightly and leave you holding a pile of ashes.

If you fancy using Horoscope Ace to help you find a soulmate, then you are also following in the footsteps of the Ancient Greeks (not that they used an app, it’s just the very idea of a ‘soul mate’ is an old one). In The Symposium, Plato explains the notion of ‘soulmates’. Plato (or rather his mouthpiece Aristophanes) says that humans originally had four arms, four legs and a single head comprised of two faces. At this time there were three genders: men, women and the ‘Androgynous’. The Three sexes had two sets of genitalia with the Androgynous being both male and female. Humans were so powerful that they were a danger to the gods. Zeus solved the problems by splitting humans in half. Each human was left with one set of genitalia and would spend their lives longing for their lost other half. Occasionally the two halves would find each other and experience a feeling of total joy and completeness.

The Ancient Egyptians were also affectionate souls and spouses often appeared side by side in tomb effigies, so it should come as no surprise that they wrote some wonderful poems on the subject of love. Here is one from around 1,500-1,000 BC;

How well she knows to cast the noose,

And yet not pay the cattle tax!

She casts the noose on me with her hair,

She captures me with her eye;

She curbs me with her necklace,

She brands me with her seal ring.

(Third Stanza, from The Nakht-Sobak Cycle of Papyrus Chester Beatty I).

The Romans, on the other hand, were a bit lackadaisical in love and basically viewed marriage as a business or political proposition, although love poems to married women have been found written by single young men. Even the Roman gods were happy to have affairs and Venus the goddess of love was far from faithful to her husband Vulcan. The story goes that Venus preferred the company of macho Mars to Vulcan. It didn’t take the God of Smiths long to realise he was being cuckolded and he made a magic invisible net which he left on his wife’s bed. Before long Venus and Mars snuck into the room for an illicit romp, no sooner had they started their shenanigans than the net engulfed them leaving them trapped. Vulcan walked in on them and called the other gods to see the trapped couple. Much merriment ensued until they were eventually released.

Today Venus and Mars could have used certain sites on the internet to arrange their extra-marital activities, although the result may have been much the same. The idea of seeking someone special or simply sultry by advertising is nothing new. The first personal advertisements appeared in newspapers in the early 18th century and matrimonial agencies printed ads on behalf of men who used them to find a wife. These ads also acted as an early form of Grinder or Gaydar for gay people who wanted to meet lovers at a time when homosexuality was illegal in the UK. Since these advertisements were often the last refuge of the desperate, they tended to have a poor reputation and their use was often a matter of shame for all involved. By the early 20th century, using these advertisements was more acceptable and they took on a Facebook like aspect, acting as a place to find potential pen pals and friends. Yet, even as late as the 1960s the public felt there was something slightly shady about a personal ad in the paper. The 1990s and the rise of the Internet made the use of dating and social sites become mainstream and now many of us know someone who has found love on line.

Just as many of us seek a mate via electronic media many of us use apps to help us organise lives. This is why Astrology Ace is perfect if you are seeking love or simply trying to work out what is going on in your admirer’s mind. You can simply click on the special love horoscope button to discover what the romantic trends are likely to be in your life.
