Mayan Astrology, Celtic Astrology, Chinese Astrology, Vedic Astrology, Sideral Astrology: which is correct?

Mayan Astrology, Celtic Astrology, Chinese Astrology (Tibetan, Mongolian, Japanese), Vedic/Hindu Astrology, Sideral Constellational Astrology (Theosophical tradition), Western Greek-based Astrology, Aztec, Inca, Aboriginal Astrology, Burmese Astrology, Native American Astrology, Egyptian Astrology, African Astrology,
So many zodiacs! Which is correct?

None. Solely all are different ways to divide the zodiac continuum of influences.

WHAT IS VERY CURIOUS is that the different signs and dates present for these zodiacs, give similar descriptions for people born in september (virgos), july (cancer), april (aries) or any other month! This applies for native american astrology, celtic astrology, even chinese astrology, and also mayan astrology.
Curiously celtic astrology has 13 signs, chinese have 12 (each divided in two), and mayan 19 signs. The celtic astrology correlates well with the dates I have described in the former post, giving later dates for aries, taurus and geminis, and people born in early april would be the 13th sign, which I have formerly called cetus. All the other month trees (celtic signs) correlate perfectly with the western descriptions. However there is a bit of controversy of different studies around celtic astrology months.
Astonishingly mayan astrology provides also a good description of our well-known archetypes, even when dividing the zodiac in 19 parts, for many they have described the same characteristics (perseverance for taurus, artistic and inventive for geminis, social for libra, tenacity for scorpio). However the descriptions for other months are slighty different adding a new insight (researchers for saggitarius, charisma for late november born people, and for many they provide a spiritual sense of life)
Aboriginal astrology is largely based in the work of australian astrologer Milton Black, which gives 12 signs similar to the western ones, for each month with no defined boundaries, accordingly to the wisdom he learnt in contacts with the aboriginal tribes. The descriptions are very similar to the western astrology signs. Very similarly, is Native American Astrology which has 12 animal totems for the dates identical to the western signs, and with similar descriptions. The question is: do both works detailing aboriginal and native american are biased by western astrology dates, or do really these tribes have the same dates and descritions? However, the animals correlate well with the idea (beaver for taurus, snake for scorpio, falcon for aries in native american; koala for cancer, echidna for scorpio, kangaroo for saggitarius, dingo for arie, crocordile for leo!!!!)
Furthermore, and I am still studying these, vedic, chinese and arabic astrologers used to divided the zodiac in so-called lunar mansions, which were 27 or 28 parts of the zodiacal sky.
Regarding sideral (theosophical-based or vedic) or tropical astrology, the question is still not solved. Having a term of comparing ancient dates would be perfect. It seems to my insight, that slowly the influence sifts in their dates along time, which would give more sense to a sideral-based astrology.
Tibetan astrology is often based in vedic hindu astrology, vedic lunar mansions; japanese astrology is based in chinese astrology, and mongolian astrology is based in chinese astology.
Burmese astrology is a strange system invented by buddist monks, divding eight houses, but is largely based in years (like the chinese astrology) and in vedic notions of the planets.
Aztec astrology and Inca astrology is poorly studied. Aztec astrology has 13 20-days signs, in a closely fashion to mayan astrology and celtic astrology, but they also divided the year in 9-day periods and 13-day periods. They would make 13 20-day signs accounting to a 260-day year. So, there are no fixed dates, but there are calculators online. Signs are like earthquake, rain, reed (my sign), flower, lizard, deer, monkey... For Inca astrology, this is even more poorly studied but the core is probably a similar one.
African astrology (I foud this in the web) has also 12 signs, with similar descriptions, the same feelings but the dates are shifted by a few dates (like aboriginal astrology or like my former post), so a person born in late november would still be more scorpio-like. Its a different view and makes sense.
Finally, Egypt African is very similar to aboriginal, african and my system posted earlier. Has again 12 signs and similar descriptions but the same shifted dates.

I will provide the links and dates in soon

Astrology is the study and mapping of celestial planetary bodies on a given date,time and place for the purpose of determining their influence upon human events. Once the positions of the Moon, Sun, and the planets has been determined the cosmic forces emanating from these celestial bodies can be correlated and a Horoscopecan then be drawn and interpreted for an individual.The individual is identified by their astrology birth chart and their astrological sign
of the zodiac constellations
