NAME ^

Acme::MetaSyntactic::zodiac - The zodiac theme

DESCRIPTION ^

Zodiacal signs from various parts of the world.

In Western and Vedic astonomy (and astrology), zodiacal signs are constellations in front of which the sun passes, as seen from earth. Traditional Western zodiac signs are based on the Babylonian observations, and contain 12 signs. However, these observations are three millenia out of date, and in reality, the sun passes in front of thirteen constellation.

This theme has four categories:

Western/Tradional

Contains the twelve signs most people are familiar with. This is the default category.

Western/Real

The thirteen constellations the sun actually passes in front of.

Vedic

The names of the constellations as they are known in India.

Chinese

The signs of the Chines zodiac. They have no relation with constellations.

Default category is Western/Traditional.
