Grandfather is the seventh sign in the Bosnian horoscope which rules over the period from 15th April until 15th May. He represents the male principle. He got his name according to the seven day period, which according to the folk calendar lasts from 21st until 28th March and symbolizes the period of first labors in the garden. Grandfather in the middle ages in BiH was a title of priests of Bosnian Christians, his wife was called Grandmother, and as a marital couple they represented spiritual leaders. But, both of these names are actually much older since they personify two ancient (Illyrian) deities – moon and sun.

Female Grandfather

Since Grandfather is primarily a male sign this is reflected in some characteristics of the woman born during this period, which doesn’t have to be butch, to the contrary, this gives her an internal strength, temperament, protective drive and enthusiasm. But also a need to be distinguished. Female Grandfather is often proud and stubborn, prone to auto destruction because of her principles and attitude. But, regardless, she sacrifices herself, she is loyal and devoted partner to which jealousy and possessiveness are not unknown. Her emotions are pronounced and despite her serious exterior or stance, behind that mask is often a gentle and vulnerable being. When she is in love she becomes childish and it is not easy to handle her, but, all of this together is cure and stimulating for the partner. She loves to be dominant in a relationship, mostly due to her insecurity, although she can compromise. At work she is engaged, dedicated. Opinions of her colleagues are important to her since she orients herself according to this and strengthens her self-confidence. She is agreeable. Often she isn’t good with money, being economical isn’t her best side, since to a female Grandfather, material things are for hedonism or for building an image of a successful person.

Male Grandfather

Person born under this sign is responsible, prone to taking care of his family and to put his needs and desires to the side for the benefit of others. Sooner or later this causes frustration and revolt and he is often prone to frequent changes of mood and decisions. He is serene in nature, emotional, unsure of himself, modest. He possess charisma but often it is left underutilized. Often there is a battle inside of him between the desire for the traditional and modern, which can slow him down in life. He is attracted to feminine and modest partners, though he often comes across completely opposite profiles out of which later are born complicated and inadequate relationships. Though not a champion of fidelity, a male Grandfather can cheat on his partner only sexually, never emotionally, since love for him is much more than the bedroom and kitchen. If he is doing what he loves, then the male Grandfather without a doubt achieves great results. Through work he becomes optimistic since he loves creating and it’s not a problem for him to stay longer than required in the work place. If he doesn’t love what he is doing then he quickly reaches saturation and unhappiness which creates an unstoppable desire for change. However, he is scared of poverty and he takes careful steps towards something new. He loves every work which allows him to be creative since this is the sign of a creator.


Bosnian circle of destiny

Bosnian horoscope or Bosnian circle of destiny is based on an old division of the year into two parts summer and winter. That is why there is in the horoscope a dualistic division into six signs of light and six signs of darkness which together represent two principles i.e. good and evil and male and female sex. That's why every sign begins within a middle of one and ends in the middle of another month. The length of one sign begins and ends on the 15th of a month at noon exactly.

Sun and moon have a dominant influence over the Bosnian circle of destiny, and they also impact life on our planet the most. Signs over which the moon presides are usually family oriented, more prone to expressing feelings and in an extent more responsible. But we shouldn’t forget in this case the influence of earth itself which can sometimes have a more pronounced influence on people during winter times, even more so than the moon, because during the winter the sky is often covered with thick clouds and the sun and moon are distant i.e. hidden.

Light signs are the complete opposite to the dark ones and that difference is especially evident in their action, inclination to risk, changes and adventures. Strengthening of the sun’s rays, acceleration of the natural rhythm, constant weather changes, or even summer storms, perfectly describe the nature of people born during one of the six light signs. Because of it they are more prone to stress, annoyance, possessiveness, abrupt mood swings.

The names of the signs in the horoscope are not coincidental, they stem from Bosnian mythology arising from the ancient cult of the Grand Mother, whose worship dates from the Neolithic all the way to the Illyrians and until today. Even though the cult influence is not pronounced like during the ancient times it is still present in numerous segments of folk belief and mythological phenomena. The main signs of the horoscope are, the snake and dragon which represent two opposing sides which are at the same time permeate one another but also divide and they signify beginning and the end. They are the alpha and omega of the circle of destiny. In the middle of the circle the position has been taken by Granddad (Did, Djed) and Grandma or Baba, priest of the Bogomils and his wife, which can also be referred to as Illyrian divine couple Vidasus and Thana or solar god and lunar goddess.

In accordance to the dualistic teachings of the Bogomils the Bosnian circle of destiny dealt with both material and spiritual life of individuals, helping them to know themselves and their role in life, and it transformed all that was negative into the positive. That’s why the circle of destiny is nothing more than a Bogomil wheel of reincarnation through which the human soul passes through in order to reach final liberation. On that journey the soul takes both human and animal forms, but also vegetative forms, trying to teach us empathy and need to help one another, no matter what our physical form looks like nor where we come from. From the aspect of Bogomil philosophy each human being seeks liberation from negative elements of their karma in order to experience enlightenment in the end. The main mover of the circle of destiny are human ego, malice, greed, jealousy but also man as a dualistic being has the potential to perceive evil and to cleanse and purify himself of it through specific cycles, and achieve enlightenment. Illustration and the search through signs of the circle of destiny is best explained if we compare it to searching for gold, when the diggers would dig tons and tons of sand in order to find after exhausting work a few pebbles of gold.

Every man carries in himself the characteristics of all signs of the circle of destiny but the most dominant ones are from the sign during whose rain he was born. Also every sign has his own energy, vibration, which forms an individual and introduces into the new cycle. That’s why in the Bosnian horoscope the sign in which one is born represents his starting position from which the soul begins its journey further in the circle of destiny. That circle is physical and spiritual. We can follow it in the material and spiritual level from birth to death – we are born and we grow, we change constantly both physically and mentally, in order for that process to stop on one level and continue on another.

Relationships between people are defined by a basic division to male and female sex and the need for them to be combined in a whole. A large part of that need for a whole is described by the word love, which is as an occurrence the subject of all possible studies from the psychological, endocrinological, all the way to molecular and biochemical. All of these studies fulfilled some parameters, explained certain mechanisms, but did not define the thing in its entirety.

The circle of destiny, as all things in nature, is based on two opposite poles which attract each other. The basics of this division are the two lights - luminaries, Sun and Moon, which represent a man and a woman which are a unique mechanism connected by numerous aspects and rules, beginning with moon phases all the way to the exaltation of these two bodies. The sun represents the male principle and exalts in the sign of the Grandfather, first of six male signs of the circle of destiny, while the moon represents the female principle which exalts in the snake, the first sign which begins the dark part of the year. There is another division which constitutes universal couples - Grandmother and Grandfather; the dragon and the snake which are positioned at the beginning and the end of the circle of destiny. They are considered to be earthly and heavenly love couples through which life energy and fertility flows. Since love is the most important segment of this energy road in the Bosnian horoscope there is a part which deals with analysis and review of mutual emotional matching of signs, which is called Anzotika, according to the name of the ancient Illyrian goddess of love.
