Zodiac Symbols and Signs

The Zodiac symbols for Aries, Taurus, Gemini, Cancer, Leo, Virgo, Libra, Scorpio, Sagittarius, Capricorn, Aquarius, and Pisces are based on the division of the ecliptic, the annual cycle of the twelve stations or "signs" along the apparent path of the Sun across the heavens.

Origin of the Zodiac Signs and Symbols

The zodiacal usage of the ecliptic's twelve stations originates in Babylonian or more precisely, Chaldean, astronomy during the first half of the 1st millennium BCE, most probably during the Neo-Babylonian times in the 7th century BCE, which actually had been built upon pre-historic Bronze Age systems of star gazing and tracking. The Babylonian calendar of the 7th century BCE assigned a constellation to each month, beginning with the Sun at vernal equinox, which at the time was Aries, and continues to remain so to this day. Over time, Babylonian or Chaldean wisdom in the Hellenistic world came to be identified with astrology and among the Greeks and Romans, the synonym of divination based on the study of the planets and stars.
