"THEY" Changed The Zodiac Signs Around

Since theyve added a new zodiac sign... I wonder how many of yall got a tattoo that doesnt match ur sign now?! I mean WTF is an Ophiuchus anyway?! I feel the same way about the new zodiac as I did when they added the white ranger to the power rangers. They gotta change the zodiac sign song now: "I SAID WHATS THAT #1 ZODIAC SIGN?!?!?!?! IS IT TAURUS?! NO!!! IS IT LIBRA?! NO!!! GO OPHIUCHUS, ITS YA BIRTHDAY!!" See & yall thought the illuminati was fake?! Who else got the power 2 add a damn zodiac sign? Next thing u know they gonna add another month called Septoberary. 
Astronomer Parke Kunkle reports that changes in the alignment of the Earth have made the science behind our astrological signs change, as well as have an addition of a 13th sign, Ophiuchus. This change has apparently  been coming throughout the years, as the 12 original signs were set almost 3,000 years ago. But the change over the years in the position of the earth in relation to the sun have created a need to revamp the astrological signs.

So, what does this new change mean for all those people worldwide who turn to their astrological horoscope for guidance? Have they been misled all these years by following the wrong sign? Well, apparently for a lot of us, we have. Here is the new breakdown of astrological signs. Take a look and see where you fall now:

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

Now, what about this new sign, Ophiuchus? What does it mean? What are its traits?

In Greek mythology, Ophiuchus was Aesclepius, Master Architect, Healer, and God of Wisdom. He has always been a part of the zodiac belt, but until now was never included in the Western astrological breakdown. As the story goes, Aesclepius was a Greek God of medicine and, when trying to bring Orion the Hunter back to life, was taken down by Zeus and cast to the sky with the Greek name Ophiuchus.

Personally, I have never really held a lot of weight in reading my horoscopes and using them as a guideline for what I do. Looking at these astrological changes now, I am glad I never did. Had I been following the horoscopes of Cancer, which was my sign, I would have been following the wrong thing. Though I thought the description of a person born under the cancer sign had always fit me, I wonder if I just saw what I wanted to see. I guess, like most everyone now, I will have to take a look at my new sign, Gemini, and see what it has to say.


  1. lol good thing this new Astrological umm MAP is only for those born after 2009 *fistpumps*
    oan: the real question is how do you even PRONOUNCE the new zodiac sign? it: O fee u cus?
    O Phi u cus? at a lost :/ lol

  2. Only after 2009? lol. So Ophiuchus the constellation suddenly appeared in 2009? I think not. Officials just say that so they don't have people moaning about the new dates for the star signs. More than likely the sun has been passing through the Constellation for thousands of years. From my short time researching it, it sounds like the Greeks, or maybe it was the Romans... They got rid of it in western culture so they could split the year into an even twelve rather than the odd 13. If your sign changed. You have always been that sign.
