Why do Astrology Signs Have Text Symbols?
The basis of the astrology symbols used to represent the planets and the zodiac are an Astrology shorthand that was used in medieval Byzantine codices.
However, they were updated during the European Renaissance and then made into Emojis by modern-day programmers.
Using Star Sign Emojis
Our ancient astrologer ancestors used glyphs to represent various aspects of Astrology just to make life easier when recording the position of the planets and writing horoscopes.
Now you can do the same with the Emojis on your cell phone.
Ah, technology, giving us the things we have already had at our fingertips for thousands of years.
