Ophiuchus - The New Zodiac

What?! There's a new Zodiac??! That's exactly how I reacted when my friend Elisa told me about Ophiuchus (pronounced OFF-ee-YOO-kuss). So yeah, Ophiuchus (picture right) is the new star sign that's been added to the current 12 zodiacs.

So what does this mean? Simply put, your zodiac sign might not be the same anymore!!! This is the chart reflecting where the stars currently are aligned:

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 - Nov 29
Ophiuchus: Nov 29 - Dec 17
Sagittarius: Dec 17 - Jan 20

Considering my birthday is on 14th November, I am no longer a Scorpio. I am now a LIBRA. The thing is, I don't want to be a Libra!!!!!!!! But do I have a choice? A BIG stinking NO! You can't just change a person's horoscope like that! It's like telling me I'm not a Eurasian anymore or my blood type has changed! What am I gonna do with the scorpion that's tattooed on my right arm?! I pity the folks that got their horoscope sign tattooed. I've seen lots of people with their signs tattooed on their wrist. Bet they're cursing their mouths off!

All I can do now is SIGH!!!!!

  6. it's okay i have my virgo sign tattooed on my ankle. This dude is completely stupid. I know "alot" about astrology, i have books on it and i myself am 110% a virgo in every way. Everything about the way i carry myself and my attitude is screaming virgo, i have in no way at all "leo" in me. He's just trying to start controversy and piss every other astronomer off. He's wanting to act like he's big and is going to change something. Besides we use the tropical zodiac anways, it's not based on the bullshit he's saying. Not only do i know that i'm a virgo but relationships that i've had and my friends around me all are spot on with their signs and even my boyfriend who now they are saying is a ophiuchus has complete Sagittarius traits and not this load of crap. He's trying to change something that has been like this for millions of years. I really could stab this dude for saying this, it pisses me off sooo bad.

  8. I read an article somewhere which said the 13th sign shouldn't affect your zodiac sign... because it's always existed! It's basically some mix up between astronomy and astrology.

    I don't exactly understand it myself but I've got the link here:

  9. Good news Noel! You no longer have to fret over your scorpion tattoo. Nobody's getting their zodiac sign changed.

    As quoted from http://news.blogs.cnn.com/2011/01/13/no-your-zodiac-sign-hasnt-changed/
    "But before astrology fans scrape the ink from their arms because they think they're now a Virgo instead of a Libra, they should consider this: If they adhered to the tropical zodiac - which, if they're a Westerner, they probably did – absolutely nothing has changed for them.

    That's worth rephrasing: If you considered yourself a Cancer under the tropical zodiac last week, you're still a Cancer under the same zodiac this week.

    That's because the tropical zodiac – which is fixed to seasons, and which Western astrology adheres to – differs from the sidereal zodiac – which is fixed to constellations and is followed more in the East, and is the type of zodiac to which the Star Tribune article ultimately refers."

    Btw, check out http://news.bmezine.com/category/modblog/ , it's where I got the above link from. This is the exact post which linked to the article: http://news.bmezine.com/2011/01/21/modblog-news-of-the-week-jan-21st-2011/#more-30503

  10. @KrystaVirgo: Totally agree with you! I reckon this guy didn't give his announcement much thought! If I were him, I'd change my name! LOL!

    @Shyanne: Hahahahaha! I forgot you had that tattoo!!!! Tsk tsk...

    @Nadie: Yeah I read that too! The both of us will always be Scorpios no matter what any idiot says!

    @Anonymous: Yaaaay! That's awesome news!!! Thanks for the links. OMG! That dude has a tattoo of Justin Bieber! What the heck was he thinking?! And the guy with the NFL tattoos on his face? I'm speechless....
