Christmas Traditions with VOA Learning English Accessibility links Languages VOA Learning English The Origin of the Zodiac. The Origin of the Zodiac: (Astrology) The zodiac (Greek: ζoδιακός, zōdiakos) is the term used to describe the circle of twelve 30ï¿½ divisions of celestial longitude that are centred upon the ecliptic - the path of the sun. The term zodiac derives from Latin zōdiacus, which in its turn comes from the Greek ζoδιακoς κύκλος (zōdiakos kuklos), meaning "circle of animals". From the earliest of times, the zodiac has been universally used to predict or reflect characteristics of personality, whether from the Chinese, Mesopotamian, Indus Valley, Egyptian or any other culture, echoing the ancient philosophy 'As above - so below'... what we today call astrology. Astrology, in its broadest sense, is the search for purpose in the heavens. We know from ancient records that the Greeks inherited their knowledge of the heavens primarily from the Mesopotamians, who in turn inherited their knowledge from the Sumerians.

BooHoo and Ditch the Label Combat Social Media Fakery – Anti-Social Media If you Google ‘Instagram’ you’re most likely to be met with a series of news stories around mental health and the negative effect the photo sharing platform has on young people’s self esteem. I was going to post some links here, but there are far too many to choose from.

Terms like FOMO have origniated from the platform and highlight the fear of missing out that users experience when they see other users tagged in event posts.
