New Zodiac Signs

Did Your Zodiac Sign Change?

I warned last week you might not be reading the right horoscope — it was in the stars! Because the Earth has shifted over the 2,500 years since astrology was created, just about everyone isn't the sign they thought.

Are you going crazy? This Washington Post writer who wrote a sarcastic (I think) open letter to the Minnesota Planetarium Society — the zodiac tyrant behind this "correction" — is.

"Don't you realize how disruptive this is? . . . This is how I organize my life! I voted for McCain because he was a Virgo and they are supposed to be steady and reliable and put all their energy into their children. Now I find out he's a Leo. Leos are, frankly, jerks! . . . I have to go ponder my new flaws now and take some more job quizzes."

Even worse, the Minnesota Planetarium Society says there is a whole new sign. If you were born between Nov. 29 and Dec. 17, you're now an Ophiuchus — that's a serpent. Find out your new sign and why you shouldn't take this forecast too seriously below.

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

Are you going to read your new or old horoscope now? Both? Not so fast! If anyone knows the Earth moves, it's astrologists, and they say they've been taking it into account forever. "It is the planets moving across the backdrop of the stars which influence our lives," says Darkstar Astrology, "not the planets moving through imagined 30 degree divisions on a piece of paper."

Are we all better?

I was a leo/virgo cusp and now I am a full blown Leo...what the heck does that mean?

I was born December 15, so apparently I'm a serpent now. That's great, I think serpents are seductive, in a dark enigmatic way. What are the supposed attributes of people born under this sign?

It's not that I believe this horoscope stuff but my personality has always matched what is written about capricorns. Now apparently I'm a sagittarius. Seriously? The question I guess I have is ...... why do we assume that the definition of the the horoscope stays the same? Could it be that what was before sagittarius has now taken the characteristics of a capricorn? So this would mean that although the name of my sign changed, the characteristic remains the same...... hmmm did I make any sense at all?

Thank goodness we're still the same, but I'm still pretty uneasy about this. What if I have a kid in the future who was born on my bday (or close to it) but would be a Libra instead of a Scorpio? Idk it's just weird to me b/c I am too used to how the zodiac has always been. It's kind of like how I still think of Pluto as a planet.

You're right brilliance13! Doesn't apply to us born before 2009.

I'm confused, I thought this only applied to those born after 2009 since that is when the new sign came into play. ....everyone should still be the same for the most part unless you're 2!

Booo I'm the new one — Ophiuchus — I don't like switching from my beloved Sag. Even though I don't follow my horoscope religiously, I feel like this is an identity crisis!

Yes, it did. And I am OK with it. Aquarius is pretty cool. So long, fishies!

I was born a Taurus and I'm staying a Taurus. I can't just start being an Aries.

I may just have to accept that I am no longer a Libra and a air sign but a Virgo which a water sign. 2011 is promised to be to be my year and so many that is what it is a change to be embraced it is time to fluid. Goodbye Libra till we meet again

The idea of a changing zodiac sign scares me I am a Libra that is what I will continue to follow I cannot simply start being a Virgo. And then there is this underling nervousness that if I continue to follow as a Libra then I may be going the wrong way. So maybe change is good and to be embraced I need to think this over

no worries! the new zodiac signs only affect newborns born from 2009 and onwards! everyone else should stay with their original signs. cnn just released an article explaining this dilemma hahaha.

Libra, my ass! I am and always will be a Scorpio! I even have a scorpion tattoo. It's the only sign that truly sounds like me.
