What is the twelfth zodiac?

Why is the zodiac divided into 12?

Around the end of the 5th century BC, Babylonian astronomers divided the ecliptic into 12 equal "signs", by analogy to 12 schematic months of 30 days each. Each sign contained 30° of celestial longitude, thus creating the first known celestial coordinate system.

What is the 11th sign of the zodiac?

Aquarius
In astrology, Aquarius is the 11th sign of the zodiac, considered as governing the period from about January 20 to about February 18.

Who created the 12 zodiac signs?

The Babylonians
The Babylonians had already divided the zodiac into 12 equal signs by 1500 BC — boasting similar constellation names to the ones familiar today, such as The Great Twins, The Lion, The Scales — and these were later incorporated into Greek divination.
