When you buy a star registry package and name a star in the sky through International Star Registry, you may select any of the 88 constellations for the star’s location. Even among those who don’t believe in astrology, many people find that by naming a star in the recipient’s zodiac sign, also called the sun sign or birth sign, makes the gift is more personal.
The 12 zodiac signs are referred to as sun signs because their location originally corresponded to the sun’s zenith overhead on an individual’s day of birth. These are ancient dates that we still refer to, but changes in the calendar over the centuries have made these associations between dates and the position of the sun on the celestial sphere less accurate.

Constellations associated with summer birthdays, like Gemini and Cancer, are located in the northern sky.
