Where does the Zodiac come from?

The Zodiac is the term used to describe the circle of 12 divisions of celestial longitude that are centred upon the path of the sun.

The 12 divisions share the names we know as our star signs.

The term zodiac derives from Latin zōdiacus – meaning "circle of animals".

Throughout history, the zodiac has been used to predict or echo characteristics of personality.

Aries colour, day and luck numbers

The lucky numbers of Aries are 9, 8 and 6.

Blue, Blue-green are lucky colors for an Aries.

Meanwhile, a Lucky day for an Aries native is Friday, Tuesday, and Saturday.

What is the Aries zodiac symbol?

The Aries horoscope symbol is the Ram, a sheep with large curving horns.

The Aries sign symbol is usually depicted as a very simple graphic meant to resemble the head of the Ram.

In 2016, Nasa announced that there have always been 13 constellations.

Ophiuchus is the name of the 13th constellation that has been part of the Sun's path in the sky.

Despite Ophiuchus being named in astronomy, most astrologists have left it out of the zodiac wheel.

The reason for this is that star signs are based on seasons rather than constellations.

The zodiac wheel is a calendar placing the star signs along the four seasons.

If you choose to base the zodiac wheel on the constellations and include Ophiuchus, the sign would be wedged between Sagittarius and Scorpio.

The inclusion of this sign changes the dates of all other star signs.

  • Capricorn: January 20th to February 16th
  • Aquarius: February 16th to March 11th
  • Pisces: March 11th to April 18th
