Hey Syclers!

Just for fun, you thought you knew your astrological sign, right?  Well, you're wrong!  see, that was based on how it was set over 2000 years ago and the stars have shifted since then.  You can read the details here.  Really though, I thought we got over this once it was figured out that the sun was the center of our system, not earth.  But whatever.  (Your ol' pal Spin would be a Gemini then instead of a Cancer.  I'm supposed to be charming and witty?  Too much pressure!)  This is called sidereal astrology and here's how it breaks down according to astronomers:

  • 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-Dec.17*.
  • Sagittarius: Dec. 17-Jan. 20.

*Ophiuchus: Nov. 29-Dec. 17.  this is where this sign would be except it got thrown out since there can't be 13 signs.  13 is unlucky.  Instead, this would be the new and improved Scorpio dates. 

I would guess that this shift must have come into more modern play say around 1000 to maybe 500 years it's a good bet that what you thought you were born under was wrong because the system was never updated from 2000 years ago.  Enjoy your new sign!  Giggity.
