What Are Zodiac Signs?
"Zodiac signs" are the twelve constellations in the "belt" through which the sun, moon, and planets seem to move. Each sign is based on a group of dates, starting around the 21st of one month and extending to the next, and people who fall under a certain sign are supposed to have certain personality traits associated with that sign.
