Definition of Zodiac

zo•di•ac (z½“d-²k”) n. zo-dee-ack 1.a. Astronomy. A band of the celestial sphere extending about 8° to either side of the ecliptic that represents the path of the principal planets, the moon, and the sun. b. In astrology, this band divided into 12 equal parts called signs, each 30° wide, bearing the name of a constellation for which it was originally named but with which it no longer coincides owing to the precession of the equinoxes. The word zodiac means, literally, the ‘circle of animal’. Astrologers believe that the sign of a person determines the makeup or character of that person. These twelve divisions of the sky along the ecliptic are Aries, Mar. 21/Apr. 20; Taurus, Apr. 21/May 20; Gemini, May 21/Jun. 21; Cancer, Jun. 22/Jul. 22; Leo, Jul. 23/Aug. 23; Virgo, Aug. 24/Sep. 22; Libra, Sep. 23/Oct. 22; Scorpio, Oct. 23/Nov. 22; Sagittarius, Nov. 23/Dec. 21; Capricorn, Dec. 22/Jan. 20; Aquarius, Jan. 21/Feb. 19; Pisces, Feb. 20/Mar. 20. The in between of a House, is a cusp. And these Houses or Signs are then part of an element (count 1, 2, 3, 4 to place every 4th matching)-Fire, Earth, Air, or Water. Then you have polarity: Fire & Air = positive / Water & Earth = negative. Further, Fire is opposite Air & Water is opposite Earth.c. A diagram or figure representing the zodiac. 2. A complete circuit; a circle. [Middle English, from Old French zodiaque, from Latin z½diacus, from Greek z½idiakos (kuklos), (circle) of the zodiac, from z½idion, small represented figure, zodiacal sign, diminutive of z½ion, living being. See ZOON1.] --zo•di“a•cal (-dº“…-k…l) adj.
