While this disambiguation page is clear that there are two main definitions of "zodiac", i.e. in "astonomy" and "astrology", there is only one article attempting to satify the differing demands of both. The current Zodiac article contradicts itself: the article and one chart indicate 12 divisions (astrology) [Template:WesternZodiac] when another chart (referring to both astrology and astonomy) [Template:Zodiac] lists 13, and could possibly list more signs that do cross the ecliptic.

Why not simply separate the "zodiac" article into two articles" "Zodiac (astronomy)" and "Zodiac (astrology)? Likewise, sort the very useful charts between the two subjects, then let them resolve confusions by becoming truly different.

This separation is beyond my wiki skill, and a lot of discussion is occurring on this subject, so I'd rather get opinions than simply peeve someone. Dab, what do you think?

I'm going to work on sifting out all that's not notable, there seems to be a lot of it here. Rob Riv (talk) 09:26, 10 May 2008 (UTC)
