    Astrology Changes...Thought You Were Scorpio or Sagittarius? Now You Are "Ophiuchus"

    All my life I thought I was a Libra. But I am not...I'm a Virgo.

    Why your zodiac sign might have changed

    Folks from the Minnesota Planetarium Society are reminding you that the astrological signs we follow today are out of whack with the originals.
    • Ophiuchus: Nov. 29-Dec. 17 *Discarded by the Babylonians because they wanted 12 signs per year
    So who here at FSU is an Ophiuchus? Please let the rest of us know how to pronounce your zodiac sign!
    It's official. I am madly in love with Meryl Davis.

    I used to be a Capricorn, now I'm a Saggitarius My friend is an Ochi thing now - whatever it is, the name is dumb. The Babylonians got it right when they dumped it.

    I'm surprised this isn't making more news - if it's all true, it would seem to turn a very longstanding and broad spectrum of thinking on its head. Even if you're not a full believer, I'd hazard to guess there are very few of us who don't know our sign and some of the characteristics associated with it, and who haven't read their horoscope on occasion.

    I am SO not a Taurus.

    I'm still a Saggitarius. The reinforcement of this is amusing to me for some reason.

    Oops! Now apparently this is not true???

    Ophiuchus the 13th Zodiac Sign? No, It's Not - Expert astrologers debunk the latest astrological rumor


    This is strange because the original source is The Globe and Mail, a well-respected national Canadian newspaper. I would have thought they would have verified this info before publishing it...

    Or, apparantly, maybe our zodiac signs haven't changed (depending on what part of the world we're from):

    I'm an Opho ... Opha ... Oprah ... ugh, however it's spelled. It looks like it should be pronounced "Oh f**k us," but that could just be me being annoyed I'm not a Sagittarius anymore. I was Googling this yesterday and learned from Wikipedia that another name for Ophiuchus is Serpentarius, which sounds like the missing Malfoy son -- I think I like that one better. It's easier to spell, for one thing. We Opherwhointhewhatnows need to band together and figure out what our personality traits are supposed to be!

    There is more than 1 zodiac, and has been for quite some time. And what Westerners use as their zodiac, the Tropical Zodiac, hasn't changed at all, because it's based on the seasons, not constellations. CNN

    With that said though, I looked at my "new" sign and feel it more accurately describes me. My original sign is Aries. There is very very little in the description that applies to me. I'm not firey, impatient, assertive or outgoing. About the only thing that I can agree on is that I look good in red. But my new sign, Pisces, is about 90% accurate when it comes to describing me, if not more.

    My dad is the new sign. I'd call and tell him if I knew how to pronounce it...

    I am not going with this. There is no one who is more of a Gemini than I am and now they suddenly want me to be a Taurus. I don't think so.

    I've always said I have no sign, so I guess I'm still good.
    Give me one more quiet night, before this loud morning gets it right, and does me in.

    Probably smart. They say I've moved from Cancer to Gemini. I don't want to be a Gemini, even though I never read them.

    I don't go with it either. I'm 100% Scorpio, born-on-the-cusp be damned. Besides, I was supposed to be a November baby.

    Well, so many things depend on your other planets and how they all interact with one another. Aries may be the only fire sign in your chart!

    www.alabe.com/freechart. Type in where you were born, what time (if you know it) and you'll get a slightly better description of how it all works! Actually interpreting the intersecting lines and conjunctions at the top takes some time, if you really want to know though I could help you out.
