As the Sun moves along the ecliptic, does gravitational lensing affect the apparent and real locii of stars in the constellations that serve as the relevant backdrop ? eg) Sun in Leo.  :vava:

Gravitational lensing knows nothing, and cares nothing about the Zodiac. Like an air-headed Hollywood star or a student with just enough knowledge to think that he's devastatingly brilliant, it happily changes the apparent location of anything that gets in it's limelight.

 

Due to the wobble of the earth on it's access as well as our movement within the galaxy, the location of various constellations precesses over time. Worse, they have the audacity to change their shapes.
