23. Zodiac Symbols

23. Zodiac Symbols (Southern)

The six Southern Zodiac signs, like the Northern ones, are divided into two groups of three. Each has its symbol originating in astrology. Libra, Scorpio and Sagittarius are Autumn signs, Capricornus, Aquarius and Pisces Winter signs. Capricornus is also known as a Tropical and Libra as an Equinoctial sign. Astrology was practised in Babylonia as far back as 3000 B.C. and in Greece in the 4th Century B.C. and, although we may not now take it seriously, let us remember that to its scientific offspring, Astronomy, we owe our present wide and useful knowledge of the heavens.
