Zodiac Signs & Dates

'Zodiac' stems from the Greek word 'zoon', or 'animal'. It is an imaginary belt in the sky both sides of the Sun's apparent path. There are several ways of finding a birth or sun sign. The birth sign shows how we most naturally express ourselves. Here we have used the most commonly used dates and meanings. For people born on the cusp (dates bordering the next sign), we recommend you check with the recipient beforehand. There are also 'Birthstones' associated with the birth signs, again they vary depending on which charts are used.
