The star in the Zodiac star gift package will be located in one the 12 zodiacs below. Ideal for a birthday or a baptism gift.
Aries The Ram
Aries is a minor constellation and not very easy to find. Its three brightest stars are Alpha, Beta and Gamma, but even these are best seen through a telescope.
Taurus The Bull
A prominent constellation near Orion. Orion's belt is a good marker for finding the superstar Aldebaran, with its gleaming, reddish glow. Aldebaran is the bull's left eye.
Gemini The Twins
Castor and Pollux were twins who were inseparable. They had different gifts, one being a great horseman, the other an undefeated boxer. Gemini is the brightest sign of the Zodiac.
Cancer The Crab
This is a faint constellation between Leo and just east of Gemini. The distant star cluster Praesepe (beehive) is a dim blur to the naked eye, but is spectacular through binoculars. In the 1970s there was a proposal to rename the zodiac sign, as some astrologers felt that an imagined association with the disease Cancer was off-putting. Some people with the sun sign of Cancer refer to themselves as "Moonchild" instead, the sign being ruled by the Moon in astrology.
Leo The Lion
One of few constellations whose shape matches its name. To see the lion's shape, you need only a little stretch of the imagination. This sign originated in ancient Egypt and it is sometimes claimed that the Sphinx's shape was borrowed from it.
Virgo The Virgin
Virgo is difficult to see with the naked eye; only Spica, the brightest star, can be seen without a telescope. Virgo is the sixth sign of the Zodiac and the second largest constellation. It is thought that there may be as many as three thousand galaxies in this constellation, at a distance of up to 70 million light years.
Libra The Scales
This constellation is right beside Scorpio. So close, in fact, that the ancient Greeks did not consider it to be a separate constellation but that it made up the claw of the scorpion. It was the Romans who compared it to a pair of scales.
Scorpio The Scorpion
This constellation is opposite Orion. The brightest of its stars is Antares, a superstar with an orange-red glow. The name means "the rival of Mars", referring to its colour, similar to that of the Red Planet.
Sagittarius The Archer
One of the most spectacular constellations, positioned in front of the middle of our galaxy in the most star-studded part of the sky. Sagittarius is not very easy to identify. The best way is to start from Scorpio, and then the six stars in Sagittarius' bow become visible.
Capricorn The Goat
Not such a bright constellation, but one of the oldest, and always associated with water and sea. In Babylonian times, this sign was called the Goat Fish, and the ancient Greeks also regarded it as a strange combination of a goat with a fish's tail.
Aquarius The Water Bearer
Aquarius is a large but faint constellation in the southern sky. Aquarius is part of the Zodiac, the twelve signs that are evenly situated round the rotation plan of the solar system. They have been used since ancient times to divide the year into twelve parts, which is why they are the basis of our horoscopes.
Pisces The Fish
This constellation is found in a rather undefined part of the sky along with other constellations associated with water, such as Capricorn and Aquarius.

My sister is a Gemini, and we are super close. I decided to name a star in the Gemini constellation for her birthday, thought it would be something unusual. She was ecstatic, said that now she has her own private little piece of the universe. Thanks Global Star!

I purchased the Twin Star kit for my parents for their 30th wedding anniversary and they couldn’t have been more pleased. They now share a star in the sky with both of their names on it, what better gift to link them as one eternally?
