What Sign Are You Really?

The 12 signs of the zodiac are out of date by a few thousand years. According to astronomers, astrologers should be using these dates for the signs of the zodiac:


Jan. 20 - Feb. 16 ------ Capricorn
Feb. 16 - March 11 ---- Aquarius
March 11 - Apr. 18 ---- Pisces
Apr. 18 - May 13 ------- Aries
May 13 - June 21 ------ Taurus
June 21 - July 20 ------ Gemini
July 20 - Aug. 10 ------ Cancer
Aug. 10 - Sep. 16 ------ Leo
Sep. 16 - Oct. 30 ------ Virgo
Oct. 30 - Nov. 23 ------ Libra
Nov. 23 - Nov. 29 ----- Scorpio
Nov. 29 - Dec. 17 ----- Ophiuchus (the Snake)
Dec. 17 - Jan. 20 ------ Sagittarius

(The above chart was provided by QMI news agency)

I rather think that the only thing that astronomers would say to astrologers is that they (astrologers) are dealing in mumbo-jumbo with not a scrap of scientific basis. That being the case, the 12 signs of the zodiac being out by "a few thousand years" is totally meaningless.

This is an old hoax. Though it resurfaces from time to time, it's not true. All it takes is a moment of time on Google and you'll find all you need.

Here's a good explanation. It doesn't matter whether one believes in astrology, but it does matter when incorrect information (about anything) is floating around.

Good link - if theres any validity to astrology its about 1. early environmental imprinting from seasons (eg dour nature of northern hemisphere capricorns due to winter birth) 2. later imprinting via power of suggestion (brainwashing) - ie people reading/hearing about what theyre supposed to be like due to membership of a sign (eg thus even southern hemisphere-born Capricorn believing they are dour, hardbitten, determined)

Anytime I think I'm perfect, I remember that my cousin lives on an island, and I've never walked over to visit her.
