What does Zodiac mean?

When we think of our zodiac sign, we think of it in terms of its astrological interpretation – or specifically our horoscope – predictions of our character and ambitions, hints and tips to live our lives printed in newspapers every morning worldwide and countless websites. This is all somehow related to the calendar date of our birthday.

Likely, most of us are a bit uneducated about the true meaning of our zodiac sign. What does the symbol mean? Where did it come from? Can it help predict my future, my destiny?

Truly zodiac means “circle of little animals” as translated from ancient Greek. Of course, the zodiac symbols are not all little animals. Cancer (the crab), Scorpio (the scorpion) and Pisces (the fish) would be the little animals referred to. However, there are  – well – big animals – Aries (the ram), Leo (the lion), Taurus (the bull) and large(r) mythological creatures such as the very strange and ancient Capricorn (a mountain-sea goat), Sagittarius (a centaur – a bit off topic but … there was a Canadian 60’s cartoon The Mighty Hercules and the cute little Newton – the centaur and Hercules sidekick – always blurting out Herk Herk!!! when trouble was astir requiring his attention – a great show if your were five at the time). This leaves us with Aquarius (water bearer), Gemini (the twins), Libra (the scales) and Virgo (the maiden).

Each zodiac sign can trace its history to a constellation. These zodiac constellations are ones that the sun passes through on its annual journey through the sky (we now know – thanks to Copernicus – that the earth is the one doing the moving – not the sun). This annual path is divided up into 12 sectors or signs. Each zodiac constellation is also given life with its apparent counterpart in Greek mythology.

Each of us has a zodiac sign and whether or not you are a believer of astrology, we can feel some special tie to our sign. Your birthdate dictates what your sign is – so check below for What’s Your Sign.
