The word Zodiac literally means animals and refers to the patterns or configurations
of creatures as seen in the twinkling stars at night. The Zodiac belt is the
great circle around which our luminescent Sun apparently moves month by month
throughout the year, transceiving the energy of those different constellational
signs and thereby transmitting the celestial radiations to our Earth.
Broadly speaking, the 12 signs of the Zodiac can be divided into both masculine
and feminine, positive and negative, or, active and passive. The masculine signs
are Aries, Gemini, Leo, Libra, Sagittarius and Aquarius, whereas the feminine
signs are Taurus, Cancer, Virgo, Scorpio, Capricorn and Pisces.
