Tidbits collected from around other topics so I hope we can get a sticky and no more questions on "how do i get x weapon". There may be some unavoidable spoilers in this topic I guess.

Zodiac Items are hidden in levels, inside shrines engraved with the appropriate sign. Once found, you cannot find the item again in this shrine, but you can fuse them or get them some other way.
Ch.2: Sagitarius Bow: While going down the stairs to where Magnus would be, enter the Tapestry on the wall.
Ch.4: Taurus Arm: You will encounter a room with a narrow walkway and swinging guillotines. Down below is a Clobberskull and some other enemies. Deal with the enemies and one of the holes in the ground will be glowing. Enter this hole.
Ch.6: Gemini Orbitars: You cannot get these unless you fight Dark Pit in the Undeground section (So, you may have to restart if you don't). After you finish the fight, instead of taking the path back out, look in the corners to find a tunnel that leads to it.
Ch.8: Cancer Claws: When you enter the room with the gold orbs, take the jump pad to the second floor. DO NOT take the Jump pad to the 3rd. Behind the Elephant enemy is another enemy. Behind him is a path that drops down to the Zodiac Door.
Ch.10: Leo Cannon: After sinking the statue into the lava and listening to Palutena talk about the statue not budging, enter the next area. Hug the wall to the left and you will enter an area where it's held.
Ch.12: Virgo Palm: There will be a point near the end where you will fight enemies and 2 Grenades will be provided. After defeating the enemies, an Elevator will appear to the next area. Instead, Turn around and find another Elevator that wasn't there before.
Ch. 14: Libra Sponge (Power) At the very end of the level where the Boss door is, instead turn around and go down the hallway. You'll find a doorway covered with electricity. Simply dodge through it.
Ch.16: Scorpio Staff:When you get to the section where an Aether Ring is given to you in a rotating room, defeat the enemies here. The next room is a drop down into another. While descending, take advantage of the Aether Ring's slow descent to look for the Zodiac Room. Avoid the bombs.
Ch.18: Aries Armor (Power): When you get to the Hotspring with the Soulflee in it, don't chase it. Go left of the Hotspring instead.
Ch.20: Capricorn Club: When in an area that you need a key, explore a bit to find some jail cells. Step on the buttons to open them and fight the enemies. Go to the last cell on the left and hug the left wall, walking through the fake wall.
Ch.23: Aquarius Sword: Once you get to a section where you have to take a grind rail and if you don't jump to another rail you fall, ride the rail, change rails, land on the platform and turn around. Get back on that same rail and don't change rails. Follow this path to the entrance.
Ch.24: Pisces Heal (Power): Right before going down a huge flight of curving stairs in order to start the trails, turn around. Follow this path to the entrance and to start some banter.
There we go. Again, sorry I just stole these from other topics more or less, but a collective grouping of all these is more helpful.
Might aswell bump this for good measure.

If I'm not wrong after defeating Lord Gaol you unlock its blade, or it it unlocked from the beginning?
I was actually wondering about that so I left it out.
Maybe I just didn't get the right combinations until then, but I couldn't make it until around the same time I could make the Magnus Club.
Perhaps the Gaol blade is unlocked at the same time.

I'm only up to chapter 9, I can make the Gaol blade. Actually, I have one. It's unlocked with chapter 2.
