The week in which we all discovered we are not who we thought we were at all! Drat! And here we were believing Capricorns had all the fun, when lo and behold Sagittarius will have to be the new merrymaking cardholder of life. If you haven’t heard, apparently astronomers have recalculated the ancient Babylonian astrology chart to account for subtle shifts in the Earth’s axis over time. Here’s your new, real sign:
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.
Yep, freeeaky! For some reason though, we believe all the yogadorks will still be able to find your center.

This is just another one of those times that a form of astrology is being presented as ‘right’ or ‘wrong’. The astrology we (westerners) are used to is tropical astrology and has more to do with our position in relation to the sun…this theory you present is in reference to the sidereal zodiac astrology, which has more to do with our position in relation to the stars. Wikipedia has some good info on both types of astrology and many other web sites have exposed this ‘debunking’ of 0ur astrology beliefs as something that comes up every once in a while. It’s funny though, so many of my friends have been talking about it… one of my friends said she felt as though her parents just told her she’s adopted… haha… it was good to be able to tell her she didn’t have to feel that way.
