Zodiac Symbols - Definition
The word zodiac is derived from the Greek word 'zodiakos' meaning 'circle of animals'. Some argue that the translation is 'little animals' The name zodiac was given to the pagan astronomers to a band of fixed stars about sixteen degrees wide that circled the earth. The Greeks then further divided the band of the zodiac into twelve individual sections, each being sixteen degrees in width and thirty degrees in length. These divisions were then named 'Houses of the Zodiac'. Each year the sun passes through each house in turn, Imaginary creatures were traced in the Star groups bounded by these rectangles; and because most of them resembled part animal in form , they later became known as the Constellations, or Signs, of the Zodiac.
