Zodiac Gear

I designed and cut the next gear.   It is a 12 sided gear.    While I was designing it, I thought "What interesting slant can I do with the number '12'?"  My first idea was "there are 12 months", so I could do something with seasons.  

But then in a flash, it came to me...the Zodiac Signs!   So I made a Zodiac Gear.   Here it is:

You can see some of the details in the following pictures.   Each tooth of the gear represents a different Zodiac Sign.   You can symbols for each, as well as it's constellation.

In the center, there is a "sun".

I think this is my favorite gear up to now.
