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.?
