Thanks to the ancient Egyptians, Zodiac
symbols are well known. They noticed that the sun takes 12
lunar rotations to complete a cycle and return to it's original
position. Knowing this, Egyptian astronomers assigned symbols
to represent each rotation. Each of the twelve symbols, with
their descriptions are known as Zodiac pictures.
Zodiac pictures are often given as birthday gifts,
symbolizing a deep connection with the recipient. Zodiac
pictures may be inscribed with captions describing behaviors
commonly associated with that symbol. Framed zodiac pictures
make a beautiful addition to the home. These symbols are:
