Zodiac Signs from Karen's Whimsy

These images of Zodiac Signs are from a children's book copyrighted 1903. According to the article, the word zodiac comes from the Greek word zogon which means animal. The Twelve Signs of the Zodiac are were used to mark the divisions of the heavenly circle in the sky. Nearly all the figures are of living creatures. Within this circle the sun, moon, and planets made their movements. The Chaldeans divided this great belt around the earth into twelve parts, according to the twelve months of the year, the sun being thirty days in passing through each part. Every division was given a sign, and a constellation or group of stars bearing the same name. They invented curious characters to stand for these signs in their calculations.
