Earlier, our ancestors liked to gaze up the sky and the stars. The people of the past were astonished while they looked up in the air in the night and were awestruck because of the movements of stars and planets. Therefore the ancestors started observing and recording them for their further information.
There was an astrologer named Solon. He admitted that the recording of stars and the planets started almost nine thousand years early; he was born. Therefore we can conclude that the practice of astrology has been in existence from the past about nine thousand years ago. One can say that astrology is the oldest system prevailing from a very long duration. It was believed that astrology was born in Mesopotamia. Later the astrology principles have spread across various of the ancient world. The astrology stepped on the land of Egyptians than to Greece from China.
In the ancient calculations, the astrologers found that the constellations of stars we're moving from one place to another. So they named them as "Wanders." Today we call them planets. The people of the ancient period thought these wanders we're gods. So they quoted them as Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn. According to the scientist's explorations, the Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto were discovered in the years of 1781,1846 and 1930, respectively. Eventually, the actions of the Sun and the Moon were traced. This laid to the basis for astrology. Everyone would show much interest in the predictions and results that come as the outcoming of the movements of various planets. Now let us have a look at them.

The Sun is seen as the most sacred planet in the complete solar system. Of course, the Sun is called the " father of the solar system." When seen astrologically, the Sun stands in the middle and has extreme power over all other planets.
