In astronomy, the zodiac (Greek zodiakos) is the ring of constellations that lines the ecliptic, which is the apparent path of the Sun across the celestial sphere over the course of the year. The paths of the Moon and planets also lie roughly within the ecliptic, and so are also within the constellations of the zodiac.
In astrology, the zodiac denotes those signs that divide the ecliptic into twelve equal
zones of celestial longitude. As such, the zodiac is a celestial coordinate system, or
more specifically an ecliptic coordinate system, taking the ecliptic as the origin of
latitude, and the position of the sun at vernal equinox as the origin of longitude.
It is known to have been in use by the Roman era, based on concepts inherited by
Hellenistic astronomy from Babylonian astronomy of the Chaldean period (mid-1st millennium
BC), which, in turn, derived from an earlier system of lists of stars along the ecliptic.
The construction of the zodiac is described in Ptolemy's Almagest (2nd century AD).
The term zodiac may also refer to the region of the celestial sphere encompassing the paths of the planets corresponding to the band of about eight arc degrees above and below the ecliptic. The zodiac of a given planet is the band that contains the path of that particular body; e.g., the "zodiac of the Moon" is the band of five degrees above and below the ecliptic. By extension, the "zodiac of the comets" may refer to the band encompassing most short-period comets.
