Astronomy and astrology have guided the human race ever since the dawn of time, and despite the new theories and teachings, the fundamentals remain the same. The zodiac or astrological signs were first conceptualized by Babylonian astrologers who were influenced by other cultures. 

Everyone who was born has a zodiac sign, and they usually span the period of a month. Just like the 12 sectors the elliptical coordinate system, there are 12 of them in total, some of which include; Gemini, Taurus, Scorpio, Libra, Aries, Capricorn, Leo, and Pisces. They all have a corresponding symbol, each of which has their unique characteristics including strengths, weaknesses, attitudes, and ways of thinking and approaching situations.

The signs can also be placed in four groups of three, each group corresponding to one of the four elements. These groups are also associated with specific traits, but not to the same extent as the individual signs.
