New zodiac? Ophiuchus

Are you sitting down? Good. Because the zodiac has changed. What you long believed was your astrological sign may not be your actual astrological sign according to recent findings in the stars.


The dates for the Western zodiac calendar, as it turns out, shifted, with each one starting later — like, a lot later. If you were a Capricorn born in early to mid-January, you’re now a Sagittarius.


Cancers born in early to mid-July? Stop being such emotional cry-babies, You’re actually Gemini’s now! Goodness, and there’s another thirteenth mysterious sign now: Ophiuchus. In any case, those of you conceived between Nov. 29 to Dec. 17, you’re all now Ophiuchus-es


NASA broke the news early this year in a blog entry that clarified that when antiquated Babylonians made the zodiac more than 3,000 years back, they needed dates on the schedule to relate with star groups of stars. Be that as it may, there were 13 groups of stars, and they were working with a year schedule. So they dumped Ophiuchus. NASA additionally called attention to that the Earth’s hub doesn’t point a similar way as it did when the first groups of stars were drawn, so the entirety of our signs have distinctive date runs now at any rate.


At the end of the day: celestial confusion. Also, the science geeks at NASA don’t mind that they’ve overturned our lives.


Settle down, everybody. It appears your zodiac signs are as they’ve generally been. In an announcement to Gizmo-do, NASA explained that there’s a major contrast between stargazing, which is the science that represents considerable authority in divine articles, space and the universe; and soothsaying, which is the investigation identified with star signs and horoscopes. “We didn’t change any Zodiac signs, we simply figured it out,” NASA representative Dwayne Brown said. “The Space Place article was about how crystal gazing isn’t cosmology, how it was a relic of antiquated history, and called attention to the science and math that came from perceptions of the night sky.” Basically, NASA was simply bringing up why the prophetic signs would almost certainly be unique in the event that they were made today—in light of a wobble in the Earth’s hub, the groups of stars our signs depended on are no longer in similar spots—and what the hell those Babylonians were thinking when they appointed every one of us stars signs a huge number of years prior. Everything is direct with the world.




In case you’re the sort of individual who depends on secretive sounding areas of stars to decide your character and result throughout everyday life, prepare to be stunned.


The field of soothsaying, which is worried about horoscopes and such, felt a significant interruption from space experts, who are worried about genuine stars and planets. The stargazers from the Minnesota Planetarium Society found that in view of the moon’s gravitational draw on Earth, the arrangement of the stars was pushed by about a month.


“When [astrologers] state that the sun is in Pisces, it’s truly not in Pisces,” noted Parke Kunkle, an individual from the gathering’s board. Your mysterious sign is dictated by the situation of the sun on the day you were conceived, with the goal that implies all that you contemplated your horoscope isn’t right.

Things being what they are, crystal gazing has had issues from its initiation.  Ancient Babylonians had 13 heavenly bodies, however, needed just 12, so tossed out Ophiuchus, the snake holder. Libra didn’t enter the image until the period of Julius Caesar.


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.
