Where does the Zodiac come from?

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.

When is International Astrology Day?

Astrologers around the world celebrate their love of the stars on March 20 which is considered the start of the astrological year.

Former president of the International Society of Astrological Research Gisele Terry told Astrology Hub: “Astrology is truly a global language.

“We are all under the same sky. Sharing both our common and diverse perspectives on how we relate to the stars is the gift of International Astrology Day.”
