Zodiac Constellations

Of the 88 recognized constellations, 12 of them are commonly designated as Zodiac signs, also known as birth signs or sun signs.

Zodiac signs correspond to specific constellations that were named thousands of years ago. The concept of astrology is based on the the stars, moon, and planets influence on Earthly events. The 12 zodiac signs are referred to as sun signs, due to their location overhead corresponding to the sun’s daytime zenith on someone’s day of birth. These are ancient designations that we still refer to. However, due to calendar changes over the centuries, these associations between dates and the position of the sun on the celestial sphere are less accurate.

The 12 Zodiac constellations lie along the “ecliptic of the sun.” This refers to the path of the sun as it appears North or South at different times of the year. Just as most of the world can see the sun year-round, most of the world can see the zodiac constellations as well. Constellations associated with winter birthdays (Scorpius, Sagittarius and Capricornus), lie further South. Constellations associated with summer birthdays (Gemini and Cancer) are located in the North.

Just as we wish upon the stars, people have looked to the skies for thousands of years to predict the future and give insight into the present. Today, astrologers still associate personality traits based on the position of the sun, moon, and planets from someone’s birthday. Many people also refer to their daily horoscope to predict their future or make sense of relationships, their careers, etc.

People love when you name a star for them in the constellation associated with their zodiac sign. With such a vast universe overhead, it’s moving to know that someone has elected to name a star associated with something as personal as your own birthday!
