One year divided them into 360 days or 12 months. Once the six months to 13 years there used to correct the shortcomings of the 12 months. They also have to share the day with the day and night hours, minutes and seconds.
Of the Babylonian empire is coming early astrology, predicting the fate of mankind in the future based on the date of birth of the person. According to those properties and one's fate depends on the date of his birth.
