    Curse those astronomers, now they tell us our nice neat zodiac (astrology thing, not the boat) is not what we thought. It's an outrage I tell you, an outrage!

    Has your sign changed? Mine has:

    The new calendar

    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
    Capricorn: Jan. 20 - Feb. 16
    Aquarius: Feb. 16 - March 11
    Pisces: March 11 - April 18​



    To be fair, though, when I searched on "revised zodiac", the second hit was an article with a 40 y/o byline. They have been deceiving all along.

    What if I don't wish to be an Ophiuchus, and I don't???

    I had a bow once, I'll stick to that, thanks.

    PS: This sucks as a sign anyway. :p

    I am changing from a Leo to a Cancer. What if I don't want Cancer?

    PS: and what the hell is a Ophiuchus? An octopussy?

    Ah yes, astrology. A 2-dimensional intrepretation of something 3-dimensional.

    I don't care what they say, I'm a Scorpio and will be until the stars fall from the heavens!

    I changed from a Capricorn to a Sagittarius. Not that it matters since I've always felt astrology was a load of crap.

    I see no reason for anyone to say anything that would send it over there. This is fun. :)

    I was a Libra; now I'm a Virgo. The Libra description fits me more closely, but Virgo is pretty close too.

    I think it's all a load of crap, as ucfgrad93 said. I prefer to remain redwarrior. :cool:

    I actually was going to say something but am refraining because it is in here.

    Urghh...

    I was wondering if we'd have a thread like this here, but hoped the intelligence of the MR users would prevail.

    There are two sets of Zodiacs, Tropical and Sidreal.

    Tropical is the one most people go by, most of the world use this one, and indeed the majority of Europe and the US. It is the one that is usually referenced in schools, and your local paper and media etc. (Up till now of course...)

    Sidreal is the Zodiac usually observed by Asian culture, who choose to follow this over the Tropical Zodiac way of thinking.

    TLDR: Nothings changed, at least for the vast majority of the planet. If you are Asian, or live in Asia, then yes, this may effect you as you follow the Sidreal Zodiac as apposed to the Tropical Zodiac.

    Is that a typo, or were you the projectionist (Christopher Lloyd) in Things to Do in Denver When You're Dead?

    First Pluto and now this. Bad things happen in threes people. This won't end well.

    I think the sign I was born under was "OB Delivery Room"... And that has proven as influential on my life as which made-up shape in the stars may or may not have been visible on that day.

    No way I am a Sagittarius. It doesn't fit me at all.

    I will always be a capricorn.

    Try to pull yourself together, old chap. This isn't the end of the world. ;)

    My sign: slippery when wet.

    He has none. ;) I have 5 (none of which are a zodiac sign.) You might be interested in this thread. :)

    Some are saying this is for those who were born after 2009. Scorpios are only like three or four days now!

    I don't believe in any of this astrology mumbo jumbo, and I'm not saying this just because I'm a cock...

    On that system I appear to be an Earth Horse. My brother is a monkey which is quite believable.

    I'm still sticking to what I used to be - Aquarius, but technically I should be a Capricorn now. Actually not since I live in the west :D
