Don't feel bad if you didn't know about the Egyptian zodiac. We're here to change that. Ancient Egypt gave us many things, including 12 zodiac signs.
I will bring you up to speed on Egyptian astrological signs right away. They might have great things to say about you and your fate in this life.
So you know the highlights, 11 of the 12 signs of the Egyptian zodiac are gods or goddesses, and they ascribe people born in these periods to the personalities attributed to these beings.
There's another interesting thing. Each sign happens up to four times each year.
1. The Nile (Jan 1-7, Jun 19-28, Sep 1-7, Nov 18-26)
In case you were wondering, this is the only sign not named after a god/goddess. It starts as the year begins. The Nile is considered the source of life in Egypt, and people under this sign take up some of its qualities such as generosity, calmness, and supportiveness. These people are also passionate but are likely to get carried away by their emotions.
