What IS Your Sign? O_O

Postby kg » 13 Jan 2011, 22:28


It's all over the news...

Due to the gravitational effect of the moon, over the last few thousand years the dates for the signs of the Zodiac have changed, and due to the fact that astronomers have been using a 13th Zodiac sign for years, a 13th Zodiac sign has been added to the mix. The 13th Zodiac sign is Ophiuchus:

Ophiuchus is a large constellation located around the celestial equator. Its name is Greek (Ὀφιοῦχος) for 'serpent-bearer', and it is commonly represented as a man grasping the snake that is represented by the constellation Serpens.


According to this article:

Kunkle says that as the Earth and Sun slowly move the signs gradually change, as expected.

The change didn't happen over night either. The 12 signs were designated to different periods of the year almost 3,000 years ago, when astrology began, and since then the Earth's position in relation to the sun has changed.

While the sign many people were born under may now be different, it shouldn't affect horoscope readings, according to NBC.


According to the adjusted dates, I'm still an Aquarius, but I'm no longer a cuspee. These are the new adjusted dates for the signs of the Zodiac:

Capricorn: Jan. 20 - Feb. 16
Aquarius: Feb. 16 - March 11
Pisces: March 11- April 18
Aries: April 18 - May 13
Taurus: May 13 - June 21
Gemini: June 21 - July 20
Cancer: July 20 - Aug. 10
Leo: Aug. 10 - Sept. 16
Virgo: Sept. 16 - Oct. 30
Libra: Oct. 30 - Nov. 23
Scorpio: Nov. 23 - Nov. 29
Ophiuchus: Nov. 29 - Dec. 17
Sagittarius: Dec. 17 - Jan. 20

So what IS your sign, and more importantly, who was born under the new sign, Ophiuchus?

I was Gemini but now seem to be Taurus.

But that can't be right, have a look at Scorpio. So you've a window of opportunity of 6 days to be a Scorpio.

This whole idea of adding a sign to the traditional zodiac is laughable. I've studied astrology for many years and even taught it for a while, and at no time during my involvement with it did anybody outside the realm of practicing astrologers take it seriously. In fact, some people went out of their way to point out the discrepancies between astrology and astronomy. So what is with all this renewed attention to what everybody and their college professors think is a myth?

I've studied astrology enough to know what it is and what it is not. While the sidereal zodiac was the reference point for the astrology invented 2000+ years ago, the whole concept of horoscope interpretation is largely misunderstood; and that is true for many a professional astrologer as well. We are dealing with how cycles evolve more than what a cause and effect relationship of planets and stars have on a person's life. The beginning of any cycle will always take on Aries qualities and characteristics regardless of where the first day of spring occurs in reference to the stars. The twelve stages of cyclic development remain constant no matter what the sidereal zodiac does. Adding to or taking away from that zodiac band of stars will do nothing more than alter the sign posts. The trip from Aries to Pisces will remain the same cycle it always has been since the first day the earth started orbiting the sun.

Needless to say, I'm not buying into the changes. :mrgreen:

Many aren't, Yogi. :grin:

In the past couple of days it's been all over the news and I figured I'd bring it up here as a matter of discussion. Actually, I found it just as humorous as declaring that Pluto is no longer a planet.

We always have to have new and "improved," don't we? :roll:

After listening to what Yogi said once before about his study of astrology, I accept the fact that there may be something in it, although I don't understand the exact science behind it all.

Well whatever happens, I was born under the sign of capricorn, and therein shall remain! : )

What sign you are under depends upon whether you go by the proper Astronomical charts or the Astrological charts used by soothsayers and mediums.
Sadly, most of those you see printed are from the occult crowd and based on Astrological charts.

Tbh, I don't think it matters WHAT sign you're born under. Your traits come from your genes, upbringing and environment, but that doesn't mean to say that I don't find some astronomical OR astrological charts interesting.

You are absolutely right Icey
What sign you are born under has absolutely nothing to do with your traits.
