Signs of the Zodiac

John Marine | 12/02/2010 05:49:00 PM | |
(UPDATED: April 17, 2014)

You know the signs, but what about the constellations? This blog entry features the constellations and the stars that comprise all 12 zodiac signs. I must regret to inform you that this is an old blog entry supposed to be about how certain zodiac signs look in space. Because of copyright concerns, I have now just made this a blog post about famous people based on their zodiac symbol. Rather than post pictures of stars in space (which was the primary intent), I will instead link you to Wikipedia so you can learn more about each zodiac sign and each constellation. I am deeply sorry to all of you.

Click on each Wikipedia link to learn more about each sign of the zodiac and of all the stars that comprise each constellation in space.

--- Zodiac Signs and Famous People ---

zodiac signs
^ from: dover489.org - The 12 signs of the zodiac. Which one is yours, and do you know the characteristics of each sign?

This blog was supposed to a digest of constellations. However, you can see the star formations from Wikipedia links I will post in this blog entry. Birthday data taken from who2.com. Then, I just added in a few extra names just to make this post fun. All famous folks in this blog post are listed in alphabetical order based on their last name. Click on the Wikipedia links to learn more about each zodiac sign and the constellations they represent.


Capricorn (Dec. 22 - Jan. 19).

Capricorn on Wikipedia -

Capricorn is the seagoat. Capricorns are usually cool, calm, and collected about various issues facing them. They know how to see themselves through various situations. Many people look at Capricorn as always taking the negative side of things, but that's to help them find a way to get through tough times. Most Capricorns don't think they are doing their absolute best, usually arguing with success. They always know they can do one better in all they do.

I am a Capricorn myself, so I'm pleased to offer this one first. And all the stuff I posted about Capricorns is certainly true about myself often times. The actual name of the constellation is Capricornus. Capricorn is Latin for either "horned male goat" or "goat horn."

--- The NEW Zodiac? (added: January 14, 2011) ---

According to the fact that Earth's alignment has changed, so have the dates of the zodiac. Here are the new dates:

New Zodiac Dates...
Capricorn: Jan. 21 to Feb. 16
Aquarius: Feb. 17 to Mar. 11
Pisces: Mar. 12 to April 18
Aries: Apr. 19 to May 13
Taurus: May 14 to June 21
Gemini: June 22 to July 20
Cancer: July 20 to Aug. 10
Leo: Aug. 11 to Sep. 16
Virgo: Sep. 17 to Oct. 30
Libra: Oct. 31 to Nov. 23
Scorpio: Nov. 24 to Dec. 17
Sagittarius: Dec. 17 to Jan. 20

Ophiuchus: November 30 to December 17


I guess I'm a Sagittarian now. :( I had to change up the dates because you can't be two signs of the zodiac at the same time. I also had to look up the new date for the Ophiuchus sign. Some sites I read had certain end days as the start of a new one. In other words, the last day for Sagittarians is January 20... which is also the first day for the •new• Capricorn date with this new date alignment.

What do you make of all of this?

I'm still not going to adjust the names of famous zodiac people just because of this.





Now you know a few famous people born within those times of the zodiac. Again, I'm sorry that I couldn't post any pictures of each zodiac sign in space, which was the primary intent of this blog post. I still hope you enjoyed reading this as well as learning aobut the different characteristics and such of each zodiac sign. I personally don't believe in horoscopes. Crap happens each day.

Most of the information about the characteristics of each zodiac sign are based on stuff I have read on Zodiac Signs. If you haven't read earlier, I am trying to get rid of as many of my incomplete 2010 blog posts to get ready for 2011, and this is one of them. Hope you like this one!

Thank you for reading!
