TWO PHILIPPINE STAR GROUPS:

- To the Bukidnons, the star group is the hunting ground of mythical hero Magbangal.
The ancient people believe that these constellations ruled the heavens for the period they were on the Eastern horizon before being replaced by the rising sun
ZODIAC SIGN CONSTELLATIONS
-The names of many constellations are Greek in origin.
- These twelve constellations became known as the zodiac constellations
OPHIUCHUS
The thirteenth constellation that crosses the ecliptic that is between the zodiac signs Scorpio and Sagittarius.
THE ZODIAC CONSTELLATIONS
Over the course of the year, the sun appears to be in front of or "in", different constellations. Thus, astrologists divide a year into twelve periods, during each period, the Sun appears to be in constellation area. One month, the sun appears in Gemini;
the next month, in Cancer.

But your astrological sign does not necessarily tell you what constellation the sun was in on the day you were born. So everyone has a corresponding zodiac sign according to the
period his/her birthday lies in. People believe that different signs of the zodiac present different characteristics and talents.
The Greek constellations have heavily influenced the accepted constellation of modern astronomy and many of the names are directly derived or remained unchanged from their time.
