"Constellation Virgo"
Back To Photo List

The stars of the night sky have been divided and mapped since ancient times. With this mapping the imaginative shapes and legends of the constellations were created. This series of photographs features the zodiac constellations from which these ancient legends are based.

Virgo, "The Virgin", is one of the twelve constellations of the zodiac, meaning that the path of the Sun and planets passes through it each year. Virgo is a "birthday sign" or "sun sign" because at the time the zodiac system was created the Sun was positioned within its boundaries during these specific days of the year.
