Does a Zodiac sign depend on a date of birth?

Your Zodiac Sign is based on your birth date and time of birth. The zodiac is divided up into 12 signs, one for each month of the year. Each sign covers 30 degrees of arc along the ecliptic (the path that Earth travels around the Sun).

The division of the zodiac into signs was introduced about 2,000 years ago by astronomer Ptolemy. His system was based on observations made by astronomers of the time. These astronomers noted that certain stars were visible in the night sky during certain months of the year and not others. For example, they could see Jupiter at its greatest distance from Earth during its spring passage across the sky but not during its fall passage. They also noticed that some stars were rising with the sun in the east and setting with it in the west while others stayed within our sight all day long. Based on these observations, they came up with a way to divide up the entire sky into parts called constellations. Within each constellation, there are many stars that appear to move together relative to the rest of the sky. These moving groups of stars are the basis for dividing up the zodiac today.

How does the ecliptic relate to the zodiac?

The ecliptic is a fictitious line that symbolizes the path of the sun. The Zodiac signs are derived from the stars that lie along this line. The sun seems to wander over the background stars as Earth circles the sun. The route of this motion in the sky is marked by the ecliptic. Wikimedia Commons has media related to Ecliptic and Zodiac.

Who started the zodiac signs?

The Babylonians invented one of the first astrological notions, the 12 zodiac signs, about 1894 BC. The Babylonians resided at Babylon, one of the most well-known ancient Mesopotamian towns, which is roughly where modern-day Iraq is located.

They assigned each sign to someone born between January 22 and February 21. The Greeks adopted their own version of the zodiac in about 300 BC. They too divided up the sky into twelve parts, but instead of assigning signs to people, they assigned them to animals. The Greek version is called "Canceridae" after the constellation that represents it. It was originally called "Arsinoƫ" after a city in Egypt that played a role in the colonization of Greece.

In about 90 BC, another ancient civilization, the Romans, introduced their own version of the zodiac. It too was based on animals, but not necessarily in order of birth. Instead, the planets that we know today as the Sun, Moon, and Earth were given human qualities. For example, the Sun is said to have a brother named Mercury who travels around him. When Mercury is in retrograde, it becomes invisible to us. But it's still there, just moving slower than other things.

Over time, all three of these ancient civilizations added, changed, or omitted signs as needed.
