“The ancient Babylonians based zodiac signs on the constellation the sun was “in” on the day a person was born. During the ensuing millenniums, the moon’s gravitational pull has made the Earth “wobble” around its axis, creating about a one-month bump in the stars’ alignment.” (Minneapolis Star Tribune)
And thus, according to Parke Kunkle of the Minnesota Planetarium Society, your astronomically “correct” zodiac sign might be different from what astrologers usually tell you. These are the new zodiac dates, corrected for the stars’ actual current alignment:
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.
I’m a Libra now instead of a Scorpio! So next time someone takes offense with my habitually grating personality, I will tell them to shut up because there’s SCIENTIFIC PROOF for the FACT that I am of extremely agreeable, diplomatic and charming character.
