So all day I kept seeing Facebook statuses pop up left and right about the new Zodiac change! I just thought it was a joke but when I was awakened in the middle of the night by a news anchor complaining about this on TV I quickly opened my laptop and googled this!
This is no joke! The Zodiac has been altered! Why you ask? Well because of the gravitational force of the moon has tilted the planet’s axis a tiny bit since the Zodiac was determined 5,000 years ago by the Babylonians. And, in discovering this there may now be a new Zodiac sign called Ophiuchus (which sounds like a bad viral infection),making this #13.
Too bad for those who have memorabilia or tattoos representing their zodiac sign! Those stamped will now be walking around with the wrong sign for the rest of their lives! Oh, and remember that cheesy pick up line – “HEY BABY! What’s you sign?” Well, now if g-d forbid you are ever asked that, here is the new list to go by so you don’t tell your potential mate you are a the wrong sign.
This new change only addresses the sidereal zodiac, that is based on constellations – so this change only involves those people in the East. Westerners remain using the tropical zodiac that is fixed to seasons. So therefore, your zodiac sign has not actually changed.
