New Zodiac Sign: Are You An Ophiuchus?

January 14, 2011 at 11:06 AM


I just read the most shocking thing today. The zodiac sign dates have changed! Here’s the story:

Oh, no he did not!Respected astronomer Parke Kunkle is telling NBC news that a change in the Earth’s alignment is now causing your astrological sign to change.

Apparently, Not only are there new zodiac sign dates released but some astronomers are coming forth with a thirteenth sign called Ophiuchus, which will have an effect on your sign if you’re a Scorpio or a Sagittarius.

The legitimacy of the new sign is still up in the air but is being printed in lists (see below). Not sure what you’re supposed to do if your birthday falls in these dates but good luck trying to pronounce your new sign!

Not sure about you, but my birthday falls on August 5, so this change affects me in a big way. According to this news, I am no longer a leo but now, I’m a cancer :( .

For 26 years I’ve been a Leo (luckily I don’t live my life by my astrological sign but I did always love being a Leo) and now all of a sudden I’m something/someone completely different? I don’t think so. I will ALWAYS be a Leo.

Here is the complete list of new zodiac sign dates (does anyone else find it weird that each sign overlaps with the next by one day. For instance, if your birthdya is on Feb 16, you’re both Capricorn and Aquarius):

What do you think of the change?

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


So…. I am no longer a Pisces now, but an Aquarius?!

No way!

I love being a Pisces and will always be a Pisces. But the thing is, wow, this astrological sign change is gonna cause a huge mess! Not only it’s confusing, but there’s an overlap. So that means if you were born on the ‘overlap’ days you have 2 signs! And wtf how do you even pronounce ‘Ophiucus‘? It’s gonna be so weird to have a new zodiac sign now.

I pity all of you who are now an ‘Opiuchus‘ ..
