What's Your Sign? Nope. Try Again.

Those who believe in astrology need to update their charts.
The ancient Babylonians based zodiac signs on the constellation the sun was "in" on the day a person was born. During the ensuing millenniums, the moon's gravitational pull has made the Earth "wobble" around its axis, creating about a one-month bump in the stars' alignment...

Indeed, most horoscope readers who consider themselves Pisces are actually Aquarians. So instead of being sensitive, humane and idealistic, they actually are friendly, loyal and inventive.  Or not.

At the link, the following new alignments are offered:
Astrology buffs should be using these dates, reflecting where the stars currently are aligned: 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. 23-29. Ophiuchus:* Nov. 29-Dec. 17. Sagittarius: Dec. 17-Jan. 20.

* Discarded by the Babylonians because they wanted 12 signs per year.

Regardless of whether you believe astrology works or not, it is a provable fact that this "new" system of astrology has been around for a long, long time. Oliver's "1940's" sounds about right; certainly since the sixties.

So, I wonder why the internet is full of it today. (Of course, the internet is full of it every day... sorry, I never could resist an old joke.)

All of astrology is based on Babylonian pagan religion and it;s all crap. The 12 zodiac signs were placed in the heaven by God the creator of everything to tell a story about the coming of the Christ and his victory over the Devil. Those who buy into the astrology trip are just being duped by the Devil who doesn't want anyone to know the truth. And that's that it's the word of God was first written in the stars. The same stars that the magi read and followed so they could see the savior of the world.

And we just saw the entire world of astrology frauds and charlatans quake in their boots as they scramble to explain this one away.

It's fairly simple. Tropical Astrology and Sidereal Astrology have both been around since the Babylonians.

Tropical is based on the earth's position in relation to the sun.

Sidereal is based on the earth's position in relation to he stars.

Both systems indicate that your life and personality are decided by the earth's position, and not by your environment, upbringing, or genes.

Interesting. My birthday is January 15. Formerly a Capricorn, now I'm a Sagittarius. My formerly Sagittarian husband, with a November 28 birthday, is now a Scorpio. I never thought I fit into the traditional description of Capricorns, but even twins can have very different personalities from each other.
