In this blog post we tell you everything about zodiac signs. Where do they come from? What are their properties? And more importantly: why do you need to know them? In addition, we show some of the items from our collection constellation posters!
What are Constellations?
The constellations are ancient. Astronomers in ancient societies, such as Ancient Greece or Ancient Egypt, invented the constellations to indicate certain times of the year. The dates tied to these periods correspond to the dates when the sun passes through a particular constellation. So zodiac signs can tell us when in the year we were born. These twelve constellations, as we know them in the Western world, together form the zodiac.
Each zodiac sign has certain characteristics. Constellations are based on the mythology and culture of the ancient astronomers. The characteristics of a constellation are therefore derived from the story behind that constellation. So zodiac signs can tell us a lot about our own personality!
