28 constellations or Lunar Mansions (Хiu) are divided into four groups of seven each. Each group of seven Lunar Mansions occupies approximately one-fourth of the ecliptic, forming four "mega-constellations" known as "Palaces." Therefore, we have four Palaces: Eastern, Northern, Western, and Southern. The width of these mega-constellations, like the 28 Lunar Mansions, varies because the stars are unevenly distributed in the sky. But for selecting dates, this does not matter much.
