Your zodiac sign may not be what you think

I was watching FOX News this morning, and this is one of the topics they were talking about.

MINNESOTA: If you've ever read your horoscope, you may be interested in what at least one astronomer has to say about it. Turns out your sign may not really be your sign.

"This is not something that happened today. This has gone on for thousands of years," said astronomer Parke Kunkle.

The star doctors say Earth is currently in a different spot in relation to the Sun, and its equatorial alignment has changed from 3,000 years ago when the study of astrology began -- back when 12 zodiac signs were assigned to 12 different periods of the year.

Those signs you were born into are different now because the Earth's wobble on its axis has created a one-month bump in the alignment of the stars, according to Kunkle.

"Because of this change of tilt, the Earth is really over here in effect and Sun is in a different constellation than it was 3,000 years ago."

What that means to you is a Virgo may now be a Leo, an Aquarius - a Capricorn, and a Taurus - an Aries.

"So I'm an Aries now, fabulous," said Jozsef Szathmary, reacting to the news.

Szathmary has gone from Taurus to Aries in stride, vowing to his sun alignment that he is ready to change.

"I'm a ball of sunshine....wherever the sun is at, that's where I'm at," he said.

And that is just the point. The Sun and Earth are moving surely and slowly, so the stars of your sign aren't the same as they were when that sign was assigned to your birth thousands of years ago.

For your new sign, just subtract one spot on the list.

But, don't expect your horoscope reading to change. Scientists say this rotation has been known about since 500 B.C. and the horoscope calendar hasn't moved.

YOUR "REAL" HOROSCOPE

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- Nov. 29
Ophiuchus: Nov. 29- Dec. 17
Sagittarius: Dec. 17- Jan. 20

Better read the article there, Bruce. Fox News only picked up the story from other various news sources.

When are you ever going to wise up, my friend?

So, instead of Libra, according to this guy I'm now a Virgo? Nah!!! I've always been a Libra and I'm gonna stay one.

I already knew most of this, but if Fox considers this "new and exciting information", who am I to dispute that. People in BFE, Midwest need to know!

That s why people get a birth chart done. Just your sun sign does not really mean a lot.

RJ is right about this one...allignments change all the time. You were born in one and as the days, years go by all changes.

Oh good Lord, not sure why you and Bruce who are considered to the left on politics want to make this all about FOX News. I simply started my blog out about having heard this news piece on the cable news channal. Apparently it's also been talked about from other news sources recently as well as I googled it to where it showed an NBC station out of Los Angelas having covered this too I believe.

Please stick to the topic of the zodiac with your opinions and comments to which this blog is truly intended.

Well, from what I hear, I fit the "Scorpio profile" to a "T"...gonna have to see what Libra has to say before I make up my mind.

D'oh! I meant Virgo...and upon a tiny bit of research, I would say Scorpio still fits better.

I know where you're both coming from. Pisces fits me really good, not to mention, I'm a water person, so....

Well, you mentioned the source twice, just saying.

I dont lean left or right. With all things theres always a middle ground.

But on topic, yes.. born on the Virgo cusp; supposed to be a Virgo but I'm a Libra and that's all she wrote.

Well...my mom LOVES to do astrology birth charts as a hobby...and I can tell you that RJ is absolutely right with her comment.

For instance...I'm an Aquarius...but my sun is in Libra...and my moon is in Pieces. That's not all though. Each person has 12 different houses...and each house is ruled by a specific planet that is governed by a particular sign on the zodiac chart.

My astrology chart is very detailed...and is 5 pages long...and as my mom has always said...your chart is not a roadmap to your life. Everyone charts their own path in life.

That makes a lot of sense. I couldn't agree more with that statement.

Here is more on this. Basically it is astronomy versus astrology and even though the story went viral this, there is nothing new about it.

Interesting. I've never had that done. Wouldn't even know where to begin. Going to have to look into that someday.

Funny that I read all this the other day and when work started yesterday everyone was all defining their new signs and refusing ti believe they were anything but the original. It kinda cracked me up that the kids I work with were in such a state of disarray over this. Me...Libra to the end, but I would be interested in more info on the topic as it arises. I definately won't be disturbed if anything has changed. I know who I am and what I need to do to improve. Cool blog!
