New Zodiac Sign Dates

I don't take astrology seriously; I see it as something to have fun with.

That being said, this is interesting:


Quote:


If you're the type of person who relies on mysterious-sounding locations of stars to determine your personality and outcome in life, get ready to be shocked.
The field of astrology, which is concerned with horoscopes and the like, felt a major disruption from astronomers, who are concerned with actual stars and planets. The astronomers from the Minnesota Planetarium Society found that because of the moon's gravitational pull on Earth, the alignment of the stars was pushed by about a month.
(More on TIME.com: See the best pictures of 2010.)
"When [astrologers] say that the sun is in Pisces, it's really not in Pisces," noted Parke Kunkle, a member of the group's board. Your astrological sign is determined by the position of the sun on the day you were born, so that means everything you thought you knew about your horoscope is wrong.
It turns out that astrology has had issues from its inception. (Aside from the fact that it tries to link personality traits with positions of the stars.) Ancient Babylonians had 13 constellations, but wanted only 12, so threw out Ophuchicus, the snake holder. Libra didn't even enter the picture until the era of Julius Caesar.
(More on TIME.com: See the most surprising pictures of 2010.)
According to the Minnesota Planetarium Society, here is where the real signs of the Zodiac should fall. Get ready for your world to change forever.
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. (Yep, this one is new — read all about the Ophiuchus way of life here)
Sagittarius: Dec. 17-Jan. 20.

So I guess I'm not a Gemini anymore. There goes my dual personality

Oh I heard about this the other day, I didn't realize they were going to actually change the dates.

I don't know what to do now that I'm a Leo. I'm lost, scared and alone in this strange new world of...shit, I don't even know what characteristics I'm supposed to possess now!

I see that whether or not I believe in it is irrelevant. I'm still a Leo, so nothing changes for me.

So many people I know whose signs will change thanks to this (wait'll I tell my mom she's got the sign of Ophiuchus now ). It's gonna get so confusing .

I'm a Virgo instead of a Libra now, eh ? I kinda liked being a Libra...

I went from Virgo to Leo. This was the most random part of my day, though.

Me too. But that actually makes more sense for me. I think I was a cat in my previous life.

I've been changed from a Virgo to a Leo as well. I'm already over it.

My sister is cracking me up on Facebook. I just told her about the change, which took her from a Libra to a Virgo and me from a Virgo to a Leo. Her response:

"...exactly and my Libra one matched me all the time... Im not the same as you used to be when you were a virgo!"

I love the assumption that my personality has already changed XD.

I don't really believe any of this stuff, but still in my life I've had two different people tell me that I was born in the wrong month. And, one added that I should have been left-handed.

Now this? (was a Scorpio, now a Libra)

OK, now I'm an Optical Ficus or whatever that new thing is.
Sorry, not going for it.
