Constellations are groups of stars which form imaginary shapes in the night sky. Over the centuries, constellations have been created after mythological creatures, animals and objects as a way to navigate at night and to track the seasons. The ecliptic is an imaginary line in the sky which marks the path of the sun. it is known as the projection of the Earth's orbit in the celestial sphere. All zodiac constellations lie along the ecliptic. There are twelve zodiac constellations; Aries, Taurus, Gemini, Cancer, Leo, Virgo, Libra, Scorpio, Sagittarius, Capricorn, Aquarius and Pisces. My birth constellation is Taurus; the bull, known for great strength and determination according to ancient roman mythology.
