New Zodiac Sign Dates: Ophiuchus The 13th Sign?

Finally this is getting some press.  I saw a website with this information back in 1998.  I printed it out for my Book of Shadows.

I even brought it up on a website 5 years ago on a thread specifically about astrology and no one even responded.

Perhaps if they got the signs wrong, they also got the personality traits wrong as well.

My theory is that the personality traits stay with the Zodiac sign. But how do you pronounce 'Ophiuchus' anyhow?  And what are their characteristics supposed to be?

I can't believe I'm a Virgo now! I've been thinking of myself as a Libra for 48 years, so this will take some getting used to! :laugh:

I refuse to relinquish my Libra-ness.  I'm no Virgo.  And my sister is certainly no Leo!

Rachel Maddow
On New Zodiac Signs:
I'm Not Changing Mine!

Click for video:



Rachel Maddow sent a message to the people behind the new zodiac signs: I'm not changing mine.

Speaking on her Thursday show, Maddow took viewers on a whirlwind tour of the changes to the Earth's magnetic fields that led some astronomers in Minnesota to the new signs. She even managed to bring the Tampa International Airport in Florida into her discussion. Then she dropped a bombshell: her own sign had supposedly changed, from an Aries to a Pisces. Maddow insisted that she was sticking to Aries, thank you very much:


"Despite not believing really in astrology, I insist on remaining an Aries. And never mind the freaking Minnesota Planetarium Society and their big facts about the universe. No matter what they say, I am not trading the mighty Aries ram for some tiny pair of fish and life as a Pisces. I'm not doing it! But I am sort of psyched that even as we tiny little things on the Earth's crust lament that things on the Earth's crust, things here in our world can't change, the very Earth, the universe, mocks us by itself changing and by forcing us to adapt. I love that."

Whew, happily, unlike Rachel Maddow, I'm still  an Aries, April 19.  I used to be the day before the last day, now I'm the day after the first day.




(Oh well. I actually do wear lots of sweaters.)
 ::) ;D


I wonder, though, if I'm still a (1954) Horse??

I don't follow this stuff, but perhaps I'll find a way of combining the old and the new.

So, I'll just be a Virgin Lion.
