Astrological Signs

The Zodiac

Twelve constellations, together called “the Zodiac,” form a circle around Earth. As Earth revolves around the Sun , a different part of the sky becomes visible, and each month a different one of these 12 constellations can be seen above the horizon.

The word Zodiac means “circle of figures” or “circle of life.”
