Zodiac Signs: You have got it all wrong

Do you read your horoscope religiously? Are you the type of person who blames failed relationships on clashing zodiac signs? It is sad to say that everything you believed about horoscope predictions is actually not true. Zodiac sign dates have changed. For example, if you thought you were a Virgo, you’re mistaken, you are technically a Leo. All the undeniable personality traits and precise predictions your sign told you- are inaccurate. You might want to rethink getting a tattoo of your Zodiac sign now, at least until you learn about your new sign.   

For the science behind this horrific news: the astronomers at Minnesota Planetarium Society discovered that the moon’s gravitation pull on earth caused the stars’ alignment to be pushed back a month. This created new constellations which resulted in shifted Zodiac signs. However, some people argue that this discovery is not valid because zodiac signs are based on the position of the sun when you were born. What they can’t argue with is the “secret” 13th constellation. It has been uncovered that there are actually 13 constellations, meaning there is another zodiac sign. Ancient babylonians only wanted 12 constellations, so they disregarded “Ophiuchus”, the snake holder. Ophiuchus is said to have an impact on zodiac signs because adding a new sign would shift the rest.

Zodiac signs have been around for more than 2,000 years, yet we are just hearing about this heartbreaking news now. In my opinion, it all sounds a little skeptical and there is no way I am anything but a Virgo, so I am going to completely ignore this sudden change. To me, horoscopes offer a sliver of hope that gives you the boost you need sometimes, and can also be quite reassuring. Zodiac signs are supposed to be about a meaning and how you interpret that meaning, so this new and complicated discovery shouldn’t matter if that is it’s purpose.

Obviously, if you believe you are true to your original sign, you can completely disregard this new finding, (like I am doing) but here is the list of updated dates for zodiac signs, including Ophiuchus:
