It seems that Aquarius was omitted for some reason.
*******Welcome to the group, Derek. Here is Aquarius.
As can be seen from the dates written on them, these have to do with the constellations, not the "signs." The dates are a little different because of the precession of the equinoxes. Some people born between Oct. 21 and Nov. 21 were born when the Sun was in the constellation Libra the Scales, not the Scorpion.
Steiner referred to great events in the ancient history of the formation of the earth, and described an influence coming from one or another group of spirit-beings at these points into our world, and that each constellation received its name in memory of these events. For instance, Scorpio was where the Sun was at the vernal equinox (meaning a "Zodiac Age" of Scorpio, as ours is the Age of Pisces and heading for the Age of Aquarius) when the Earth and Moon separated in two, which was also when we divided into two sexes and the sex organs first appeared----hence the connection of Scorpio with them. This was in ancient Lemuria. So these impulses coming in from these quarters showed the nature of the spirit-beings and they are remembered as being of that nature ever since.
Incidentally, when you look towards that constellation Scorpio with its red giant star "heart", Antares, you look into the center of the Milky Way galaxy, in to the spiral ring. Look at the "Bull's Eye" exactly opposite, the star Aldebaran in Taurus, and you are looking out onto the spiral arm of the galaxy.
