Hey, zodiac signs, make room! Ophiuchus is here to join!
Are you keeping up with your horoscope readings? NASA claims you may be following someone else’s predictions!
Turns out, your sign can be different!
For millennia, the astrological calendar has been a stable entity. Everyone’s star signs were assigned based on the constellation that was opposite Earth (behind the Sun) at the moment when a person was born. However, the Earth’s orbit has changed, thus changing the position of the Sun and, consequently, the sign behind it. So, basically, every bit of astrological knowledge you had is now subject to reasonable doubt!
NASA claims that the Earth’s axial tilt is now different from the one it had 3,000 years ago, when ancient Babylonians created the zodiac. Now some adjustments are needed to make the zodiac as accurate and reliable as we used to believe it was.
What if you are an Ophiuchus?
The main adjustment is the addition of a new sign – Ophiuchus, or Serpent-bearer. It will be assigned to people born from November 30 to December 18. Ophiuchus made its first appearance in 1995, and has since then gained immense popularity in Japan. Moreover, in 1970 some scientists suggested that an even bigger zodiac system should be introduced, with Cetus (Whale) being the 14th sign.
New Zodiac Calendar
So, here’s a new zodiac calendar, according to NASA’s adjustments:
- Capricorn – January 21 – February 16
- Aquarius – February 17 – March 12
- Pisces – March 13 – April 18
- Aries – April 19 – May 14
- Taurus – May 15 – June 21
- Gemini – June 22 – July 20
- Cancer – July 21 – August 10
- Leo – August 11 – September 16
- Virgo – September 17 – October 31
- Libra – November 1 – November 23
- Scorpio – November 24 – November 29
- Ophiuchus – November 30 – December 18 (New!)
- Sagittarius – December 19 – January 20
Should we rely on it now? What is your opinion about all this?
