Those are the twelve constellations of the "Zodiac". You can still see them listed in the newspaper, somewhere near the comics, Bridge, the crossword, and advice to the lovelorn.


The "zodiac" is a group of 12 constellations, but they're really no more or less important than any of the 76 others.


The "classical" zodiac consists of 12 constellations, most of them represent some animal (hence the name). According to the current definitions of constellations, however, the Sun goes through 13 constellations.The "classical" zodiac consists of 12 constellations, most of them represent some animal (hence the name).

The zodiac is the group of constellations where the Sun passes, in its yearly movement (this yearly movement is really the reflection of Earth's movement around the Sun). The "classical" Zodiac has 12 constellations, but the way constellations are organized today, the Sun actually passes through 13 constellations.The zodiac is the group of constellations where the Sun passes, in its yearly movement (this yearly movement is really the reflection of Earth's movement around the Sun).

Yes. The 12 zodiacs belong to the group of 88 constellations. They are the constellations which include the ecliptic (The path were the sun goes through them.) Whichever constellation the sun was in on your birthday gives you your birthsign.


There is a total of 88 constellations, not 12. There are 88 constellations total today but, there are only 27 major constellations and 12 zodiacal constellation signs total.


What do you mean "the" 12? There are not 12 constellations, there are a total of 88 constellations. Perhaps you are confusing with the signs of the zodiac.


The 12 zodiac constellations that the star signs are based on are: Aries, Taurus, Gemini, Cancer, Leo, Virgo, Libra, Scorpius, Sagittarius, Capricornus, Aquarius, and Pisces. Note that the star signs Scorpio and Capricorn do not have the same name as their associated constellations.


There are many more than 12 constellations in the sky, but only 12 constellations are signs of the Zodiac.



The family name is Transition Metal. The group number is 12.


There are 88 official "constellations" recognized by the International Astronomical Union. These official constellations include the 12 Zodiac constellations and such well-known ones like Ursa Major or Orion. Any named grouping of stars other than the "official" 88 are called "asterisms". For example, the Big Dipper is not an official constellation; instead, it is an asterism. Asterisms may be parts of constellations, or may include stars from two or more constellations. The Big Dipper is a part of the larger constellation of Ursa Major, while "Orion's Belt" is an asterism, the middle part of the constellation of Orion.


Because this question is in the "Australia" section, it will be addressed as such. The 12 Apostles are a rock formation in the sea off the southern coast of Victoria. There are not twelve, but because they are in a scattered group, they were assigned a name that designated them as a common group, just as Jesus's apostles, or disciples, were a group "cut from the rock", so to speak. Apart from this, there is no particular reason for why they were given this name.


10^29 plus 10^12. The more common name for 10^12 is a trillion. There is no common name for 10^29.


Constellations have been used to tell time for hundreds of years. The 12 zodiacal constellations are used to symbolize the 12 months in a yearly cycle. another is, It may lead a person to their position & to use this information in many ways like telling direction.


The largest of the 12 zodiac constellations is Virgo.


It moves through the 12 standard constellations that define the basic neighborhood of the ecliptic. These are the constellations you see listed in your morning paper's horoscope.


There is no specific name. And it is not "duodecimal" since the number 12 is not a duodecimal "digit".


There is an imaginary band in the sky called the Plane of the Ecliptic. The planets we can see from earth, never wander above or below that band of sky - so the planets are always in one of the other of the constellations that lie in that band. We call those particular 12 (or 13) constellations the "constellations of the Zodiac".


From our perspective, the sun moves through the zodiacal constellations, not Earth. But that takes approximately one year - since their are 12 constellations of the zodiac - one for each month.


The classical constellations of the Zodiac are 12, but according to the modern official boundaries of the constellation, the Sun passes through 13 constellations.


Group 12 consists of zinc, cadmium, and mercury. These are also called the noble metals, because of their chemical resistivity and full electron shells


There is no such thing as a "main" constellation in terms of ASTRONOMY, the IAU recognises 88 constellations. However in terms of ASTROLOGY = there are 12 signs of the Zodiac. The signes of the Zodiac are incorporated into (are a subset) of the 88 IAU recognised constellations


There are 12 zodiac constellations, althought some belive there are 13, but most people think there is only 12. If the project is not to Important put 12, same with important ones, but I WoulD mention that some people belive that there is a 13 constellation. Hope this helped
