Am I Reading the Right Horoscope?

Why You Might Not Be Reading the Right Horoscope

If you're a religious horoscope reader, or even a casual one, today there's a whole new reason to think stars are mere dust.

Because the Earth moves, all signs have moved about a month since astrology was created over 2,500 years ago. So if you were born a Gemini, you might actually be a Cancer. I suppose astrologists will tell us to read the sign we were born into and the one after, but that's way too much reading, especially if you follow rising signs.

Still, 25 percent of Americans believe in astrology; if you're one, does this change your outlook?

Wow. Good thing I didn't get that Scorpio tattoo. I usually check astrology zone every month.

Thanks for sharing the new signs, Betty Wayne! I was born September 21st so I guess I'm still very much a Virgo. The Virgo description fits me to a T, anyway.

I think I still prefer to call myself Aquarius.

I agree with tig3rbianca... I don't believe in this stuff, but it's really fun to read and lightly play around with. The book Born On a Rotten Day is hilarious!!

I am VERY much a Taurus. Pretty much everything it says about a Taurus is me to a T. But I don't really think about it.

I am more into my moon sign than my sun sign. I have never fit the description of my sun sign. That's another reason why I stopped reading horoscopes 10 yrs ago.

There's a book called Born on a Rotten Day, its all the negative stuff on each zodiac. It's very funny. But I don't believe in horoscopes, they are like fortune cookies, fun to read but not taken seriously in the slightest.

I never really fit the Sagittarius description. Apparently I'm actually Ophiuchus? Of course I wouldn't even be part of the standard zodiac, would I? No horoscope for me.
