First of all, you should know that the African Astrology in one of the most primitive and most accurate forms of astrology, and it is based in Geomancy.
The beginnings of African astrology are found in the development of the ancient African civilizations.
The current belief is that the Africans were the most primitive of the societies to have become interested in the stars, invented names for the planets and to have begun a study of astrology.
Geomancy is the root technique of African astrology. When bones are tossed down randomly and form lines and arrows this type of divination is called geomancy.
The lines would then be organized into three levels. The base level uses a bone (one of the three bones thrown) in a vertical line, and the other two levels are then formed of one or two lines.
In this way, they create a 12 figure image, and through this technique, the African zodiac was created.
As is the case in so many types of astrology, the Africans have 12 zodiac signs that are related to the 12 figures made out of the bones. The figures are: The Baobab Tree, The Wealth of Amber and Silver, The Family, Small Services to the Neighborhood, The Market, The Ancestor, The Judge, The Kola Nut, The Travelers, The Distance, The Child of the World and The Harvest in the Granary.
When we look at the names of the figures these are all items that would be of great importance as to the early Africans. What is emerging civilization not always concerned with the harvest, wealth and the family?

They are more often called upon as a consultant than they call upon others.
‘The Family’ people are destined to achieve one great act in their lifetimes, be it in a job or day to day life.
‘Family’ loners should abandon whatever holds them back and know that wherever they go they will nearly always be accepted.
4. Small Services to the Neighborhood (5 April – 4 May)
People born under this sign will always make friends easily and make themselves understood. They will always come through in a moment of crisis.
But when they have to make tough decisions they will often sink back into nostalgia in an effort to put off deciding until they absolutely have to.
Know who your enemies are and do not waste any of your gentle sentiments in seeking affection from them,
stick with your true friends and you will have many lasting friendships.
5. The Market (5 May – 4 June)
In life, people born under this sign will encounter peace and harmony as well as face brutality and danger.
They waste their energy on relationships without any future.
Sometimes, dramatists, they can exaggerate crises, but they will never remain distressed for long as they never wander far from a fair benevolence.
