The circle of twelve little animals in one wooden clock

What the heck is a zodiac?

Zodiac wall clock * wooden construction kit * new set at wooden-town.comThe name "zodiac" reflects the prominence of animals (and mythological hybrids) among the twelve signs. The zodiac was in use by the Roman era, based on concepts inherited by astronomy from the mid-1st millennium BC period, which, in turn, derived from an earlier system of lists of stars along the ecliptic.

The twelve signs

In the modern zodiac, the following signs are used (show in the table with the ecliptic longitudes of their first points), where 0° Aries is understood as the vernal equinox.

The beginning of Aries is defined as the moment of vernal equinox, and all other dates shift accordingly. As each sign takes up exactly 30 degrees of the zodiac, the average duration of the solar stay in each sign is one twelfth of a sidereal year.
