Searching for the original 10 sign zodiac system
Lately I´ve been catching up on my understanding of the Western zodiac system when I decided to compare it to many others like it to find similarity and differences between them all when out of no where I read a comment stated that the signs Virgo Scorpio and Libra were once 1 sign. Intrigued by the idea ,I decided to look into it but it seems I have hit a road block. I would like to know more about this so if anyone has any knowledge on the matter or even a picture of the 10 zodiac wheel system that would be awesome if you would share this information with me. Thanks in advance ?

(Scorpio) ancient_astrology
The two greatest scholars of astrological history, at least in the English speaking world, are David Pingree and Francesca Rochberg. There books may be a source for you. Honestly in my studies of astrological hsitory I don´t remember an 8 sign zodiac, but I might be forgetting something. The Mesopotamians had an 18 sign zodiac at one time that was lunar based. There was also a house system of 8 houses early in the Hellenistic tradition.

More popular accounts of astrological history are Michael Baigent´s "Astrology in Ancient Mesopotamia", which despite some sketchy history he´s done concerning Jesus of Nazareth, is actually pretty good. Nicolas Campion´s survey of astrological history is also good. I briefly checked both of those works and could find nothing on a 10 sign zodiac, but maybe I missed it.

Good luck in your research and update us if you find information on a 10 house zodiac.

I would recommend Dane Rudhyar . Not so much for the 10 signs , but for his insight into astrology as a whole.

You´re asking the right question, my brother.
This is all I know:
"Instead of the twelve signs of the Zodiac now known to the general public, there were originally but ten: Aries, Taurus, Gemini, Cancer, Leo, followed by the dual Virgo-Scorpio, Sagittarius, Capricornus, Aquarius and Pisces."
