No part of thisabstract may be reproduced or transmitted in any form or by any means,electronic or otherwise, for commercial purposes or otherwise, withoutthe written permission of the author, except when permitted by law.THE REFORMATION OF THE ZODIACKlaudio ZicPublished conclusively 2006 August 24ABSTRACTWhat is the zodiac and how is it defined? Upon finding the definitionof the zodiac inadequate, we conducted a research resulting withseveral publications as presented on http://www.lulu.com/astrology1. INTRODUCTIONThe importance of the zodiac cannot be overemphasized since it iswithin the frame of the zodiac that the planets, the sun and the moon(our proposal) move. Civilization determines the ages in accordancewith precession as well as traditionally by observing the sun onspring equinox. The great changes of our civilization happen inaccordance to precession as determined by the constellations and thezodiac. In order to determine the nature of the zodiac we set ourresearch within the IAU standards. The scientific framework as well asmain reference for the research was provided and precision ensured bythe NASA JPL HORIZONS integrator by Jon Giorgini .2. INCENTIVEThe IAU standards set a new definition of the zodiac, as they don'tcomply with the general presumptions about the zodiacal belt. The IAUconstellation borders are not at all compatible with whateverastrological simplification of the solar system. We have found theIAU borders very apt in comparing our results with those of the

earlier civilizations. Thus the Egyptians clearly coupled Leo withHydra as purported in detail in Zic, Klaudio, Venus in Hydra, LuluPublications. The prevalent idea of the zodiac does not hold water, asthe sun is e.g. in Libra on November 23rd. Moreover the sun and theplanets don't follow any generally expected pattern at all as to thenumber of constellations on their journey as well as the frequency of their passage through a given constellation. As the sun entersOphiuchus every December so do the planets and the moon. But not everyplanet enters e.g. Sextans, much as the sun only gets close to Cetusand very close to Orion. Our task was to determine the number of thezodiacal constellations. We included the moon in our survey along withthe planets and the sun.3. APPROACHThe zodiac started crystallizing from our daily practice with severalastronomical programs. While the aforementioned HORIZONS integratorserved as main reference, we have made large use of Dance of thePlanets, Skyglobe, and Skychart programs. Our offline integrator wasSolex by Aldo Vitagliano.4. RESULTSThe results of our research are as follow.Venus spans through 21 zodiacal IAU constellation, including Cetus(2005), Orion (2006), Hydra (2007), Scutum (2014) and Pegasus (2025).Each of the special positions of Venus was carefully documented, aswell as published within separate publications along with theappropriate ephemeris .As we decided to include the moon in our survey, the resulting zodiacnumbers 22 IAU constellations. The additional zodiacal station wasprovided by the rather frequent position of moon in Auriga. Aurigathus concludes our zodiacal research.Special consideration must be given to dwarf planets Pluto and Erisfor historical reasons. There are in fact several historical zodiacalprojects and publications dealing with Eris (2003 UB313) and Pluto,now dwarf planets. The discovery of Pluto expanded the zodiac byseveral constellations, most remarkably Eridanus, Coma Berenices andBootes, while the discovery of Eris greatly expanded the zodiac beforeEris and Pluto were officially proclaimed dwarf planets. Eris does notfollow any known zodiacal routine much as Pluto never enters Pisces orAries but dives through Cetus instead. The complex problematic of Erisin the "x−zodiacal" positions has been dealt in our early publicationabout the X zodiac, Zic, Klaudio, 2005 August 1, 2003 UB313 and the XZodiac, Lulu Publications. As Eris spans over 40 constellations we arelucky to have Eris and Pluto out of the standard zodiacal environmentat least as concern practical matters. The zodiac that we were able todetermine as final is the historical N3 zodiacal model or theNeptunian Zodiac. The P and X zodiacs are nevertheless not only afascinating but also recommendable study as concerns the recent
