A little bit of art I did to help me remember the birth signs and corresponding months of the Elder Scrolls series.

Thanks for sharing! Would also help me and others remember the signs, I keep looking up at the night sky in Skyrim and always forget the constellations.

Pretty awesome piece of work! It certainly helps in correlating birthsigns with their seasons in a clean and professional looking fashion.

Might I ask how you determined the placement of each part of the circle? At first I assumed that it wasn't set chronologically by month to month; but then I noticed it went counter clockwise instead of clockwise. That threw me off; but I'm unfamiliar with the usual ways these things are done. I'm used to seeing time-date things go clockwise and such.

Perhaps for further detailing, you could color some of the birthsigns with their respective "charge." So the Warrior's charges would be red, the Mage's charges blue, and the Thief's charges green. Just a possible suggestion to further make this a comprehensive guide.

Good work Maleus!

Thanks for the complement.

I'm also used to seeing stuff like this go clockwise, but I referenced it after a Google search for "Astrology chart" or something of the sort. Which showed most of the pictures had the symbols going counter-clockwise chronologically. I am admittedly clueless about that kind of thing (Birth-signs, Astrology, Etc...) and had to look up many things like "What order the signs go in" and the corresponding names, but in the end I had enough of a gist to make this.

I was thinking of editing it a bit, maybe i'll try out your idea of matching colors to the guardians and charges.

Heres a colored Version by suggestion of Horizon Seeker.

I found the picture that made me make it counter-clockwise.

And here is the chart that I look at to pick the exact placements. I took the sign that had the most days in a month and called that the "Sign's month" since in TES each sign goes with a month instead of being a few days off and such in the real world. and then compared that signs month to the TES month.

These two articles helped a bunch, but i noticed that the Skyrim calendar was off a bit on that page Since your game begins on Sundas, 17th of Last Seed 4E 201. you'll notice in the link that the 17th of Last Seed lands on a Morndas which is incorrect.

Fun fact, In 2014 the year will match up exactly with 4E 201.
