There are many correct answers to this one. There are 12 constellations that are around the ecliptic, or the "celestial equator". We call these the "signs of the Zodiac". Pick any two constellations that are 6 apart; those two constellations will not be in the sky together. For example, Capricorn and Cancer, or Aquarius and Leo.

There is also a 13th star/ zodiac sign called Ophiuchus. Of the 13 zodiacal constellations (constellations that contain the Sun during the course of the year), Ophiuchus is the only one not counted as an astrological sign. Ophiuchus is depicted as a man grasping a serpent. Ophiuchus is one of the 88 constellations and was also one of the 48 listed by Ptolemy. Ophiuchus was formerly referred to as Serpentarius, the former originating in Greek and the latter in Latin, both meaning "serpent-holder". According to Wiki, zodiac signs are actually zodiacal constellation which sun passes through them during the course of the year. Even though the sun passed though Ophiuchus, it is not counted as a proper zodiac sign. Some theories were that the number 13 was considered as unlucky in the western world, thus it was not added in. Other official explanation was that Ophiuchus was not in the natural southerly path of the 12 major constellations thus it is awkward to promote it as part of natural universal precession. Anyway, if astronomers added Ophiuchus into the zodiac signs, the months which we associated with a zodiac sign changes. One might not even be the zodiac sign that he/she is known as. See the list below. The more interesting thing about Ophiuchus is that one in twenty people falls under this sign, but there is no proper explanation on what are their characters and personalities like compared to other signs... Many people questioned the characters and personalities of Ophiuchusian online, but found no answer. Some suggested that perhaps they are cusp of Scorpio and Sagittarius, but I doubted so since current zodiac signs' character differs very much from one and other even though they fall right after each other.


The precession of the Equinoxes has changed the actual beginning dates of when the Sun goes into many of the constellations.
