That is, at the beginning of Egyptian civilization, although more researchers and archaeologists date its origin much earlier.
The Egyptian horoscope, or rather Egyptian astrology, extends to Greece and Rome with great acceptance, and there arise the divine representations applied to the planets (Mars, Saturn, etc.), associating them with their characteristics.
