When Zodiac constellations were first named (about 3 thouthands years ago), Sun was passing via them. Since then, Ecliptic plane gradually tilts due to Earth axis precession, and now Zodiac constellations are far off the ecliptic, so Sun no longer passes via them.

Thus, it is incorrect to use these constellations in modern-day horoscope.
