Animation demonstrating how the Sun appears to move through the stars of the Zodiac as the Earth orbits the Sun.
This is what led the first astrologers to administer ‘Zodiac Signs’ to people born within certain dates.
Originally, for example, people born between the dates 21st of January to the 19th of February, would have been born while the Aquarius constellation was in the sky.
Although true 2000 years ago, precession has occurred since, and the constellations over a year appear differently now to what they did 2000 years ago.
Meaning that those born between the 16th of February and the 11th of March are now technically born while the Aquarius constellation is in the sky.
There is, of course, no scientific evidence that what constellation is in the sky at the time of your birth effects your day to day life.
