If you have a basic familiarity with the each zodiac sign, it should come as no surprise that the etymology of the word “zodiac” is “circle of animals”. About half of the symbolic figures of the signs, which are all taken from constellations drawing on Greek and Roman mythology, are animals while the rest are animal hybrids and other mythical beings. Each sign has a set of traits, strengths, and weaknesses common to people with strong planetary placements in the sign, and each is also is assigned a symbol, ruling planet, element, quality, and area of life it concerns. The sign you identify with when reading your daily horoscope is your sun sign, or the section of the zodiac in which the sun was traveling at the time of your birth.
