 Astrological Houses and Zodiacal Signs by Dane Rudhyar | Rudhyar Archival Project | Astrological Articles
This even distribution of zodiacal degrees around the wheel of the houses appears in what is called "solar charts," but these do not attempt actually to describe the pattern of the heavens — the "state of the world" — at the moment, and from the place of birth.
The zodiac symbolizes in astrology the entire cycle of the yearly modifications of the "Life-force", which surrounds, pervades and animates the earth and all organisms living on its surface.
A zodiacal sign or degree is a mode of life-energy; it is always "energy" — or rather "energy-substance," as today we know that the two elements, energy and substance, are one and interchangeable.

  The Mystery of the Ages Solved
The problem is that the zero point of the zodiac, the key to the beginning of the zodiacal ages (and the zodiacal signs) has been lost for a long time.
The astrological zodiac and the modern definition of the zodiac were derived from the traditional zodiac, but have taken on many new meanings so that they have little in common except for using the same names.
The boundaries of the zodiacal signs are locked in sync with the galaxy (galactic plane/equator/circle, orbis lacteus) and therefore never change; all the stars and constellations within them very gradually shift and move.

  Zodiac - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The zodiac is also understood as a region of the celestial sphere that includes a band of eight arc degrees above and below the ecliptic, and therefore encompasses the paths of the Moon and the naked eye planets (Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter, and Saturn).
At issue in the debate is whether the signs should be defined in terms of signs roughly aligned with the constellations of the same name (for sidereal astrologers) or whether the signs should be defined in terms of zones derived from nodal points defined by Earth's motion during a tropical year.
Because of the division of the zodiac into 12 signs of 30° each; due to various specifications for the boundaries of the constellations; and especially due to the precession of the equinoxes for the tropical system of coordinates, the constellations should not be confused with zodiac signs.

There are four of the zodiacal signs which are mysteriously concerned with what one might call the "personality expression" (if such an unsuitable term can be used in default of better) of the solar Logos Himself, or with the Divine Quaternary, the fourfold manifestation of Deity.
These four signs are Aries - Leo - Scorpio - Aquarius, and they involve the expression of the energy of one Cardinal sign and of three signs which form part of the Fixed Cross of the heavens.

 Made in the Image of the Heavens: The Cosmology of the Hand by Dylan Warren-Davis
This idea is embodied in the numerous depictions of zodiacal man, where the sequence of the zodiacal signs is connected to the different parts of the body, starting with Aries ruling the head and concluding with Pisces ruling the feet.
Astrology and hand-reading are sister disciplines that have explored this macro/microcosmic relationship from opposite poles; astrology illuminating the macrocosm of the planets in the heavens, and cheiromancy revealing the microcosm within the hand.
As a consequence, the cosmology and symbolism of the elements, planets and zodiacal signs are common to both disciplines and a number of astrologers in former times were also known to read hands.

 Signs & Constellations © 1998-1999 by Richard Nolle
It is true that the zodiacal signs and constellations are not in the same place in our time - or in any other epoch, due to the unequal length of each constellation versus the equal length of each sign.
The twelve sectors of the zodiac of constellations - known as the sidereal zodiac - are in most cases of unequal length.
It is possible for the starting points of a given sign and constellation to line up, even though the rest of the sidereal and tropical zodiac won't match up due to the unequal boundaries of the various constellations.

 Signs of the Zodiac: What Are They?
What we call a “sign” may be in part the culmination area of basic harmonic waves which divide evenly into the number twelve: Twelve is the lowest common multiple of 2, 3, 4 and 6, and so embraces the symbolism of these numbers.
Because the area of overlap between the zodiacs at present is only 1/5 of a sign, and harmonic effects would diminish toward the ends of signs, it is very difficult to judge which zodiac might be the most accurate when only personal opinion and observation are used for measurement.
Another possibility is that harmonics correlate with signs measured from the equinox, but the effects of planetary domiciles belong to the sidereal zodiac.

If the real orthography of the name, by which the sign in question is indicated, is properly understood, it will readily be seen that the next three signs are not what they ought to be.
