There are thirteen named constellations in the sky above Nirn. There are three Guardian signs; The Warrior, The Mage, and The Thief, each of which protects three charges. Each of these twelve signs corresponds to one of the twelve months in the Tamrielic year. The thirteenth sign, The Serpent, has no guardian or month and moves around the sky, usually threatening the other signs. The Firmament provides descriptions of all of the constellations, as quoted in the following sections.

The Dwemer have symbols for these constellations, which (except for The Serpent) correspond to letters in the Dwemer Alphabet.
