The zodiac was originally constructed as a method of measurement, showing the amount of time it takes for the sun to pass through the constellations. Although this movement is really representative of the earth revolving around the sun, from earth it appears as through the sun transits the heavens. The zodiac takes the form of a circle, and its divisions number twelve equal parts. Each part is called a sign. The sun appears in each sign, or part, at approximately the same time each year. Each part or sign bears the name of a constellation. Over the centuries, each part gathered unique qualities, energies, and histories. Each zodiac sign also has angelic associations, including "angelic rulers." Below, read about the Angels of Leo.
