The 13th Zodiac Sign (?)

This cracked me up. I just learned that there is a new zodiac sign, how it happened? Read on (from The Huffington Post):

Astronomer Parke Kunkle says that due to changes in the Earth's alignment the dates of many zodiac signs have changed, according to NBC. In addition, there may be a 13th Zodiac sign: Ophiuchus.

Kunkle says that as the Earth and Sun slowly move the signs gradually change, as expected. The change didn't happen over night either. The 12 signs were designated to different periods of the year almost 3,000 years ago, when astrology began, and since then the Earth's position in relation to the sun has changed.

While the sign many people were born under may now be different, it shouldn't affect horoscope readings, according to NBC.

See if your Zodiac sign has changed below:

The New Dates:
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

Hmmm.. I'm a little confused. There are overlapping dates, not my problem though since my birthday doesn't fall on any of those dates. But based on the new ZOdiac sign dates, from Aquarius, I am now a Capricorn! No way!!!

First of all, I'm not affected that much. Who is Parke Kunkle anyway?

Second, I was reading the comments, and just can't help but laugh at people's stubborness and obvious resistance to change. Then I also realize how much people love their birth sign hahaha.

Third, I'll always be Aquarius, just like anybody else, I love my original birth sign, unless, being a Capricorn would make me a millionaire hehehe.

So what's your new zodiac? Are you amendable to this?

i know we had this discussion before. and i still stand by my views. it's lame. i dunno why people even bother so much about this really. but then it's bothersome enough. i used to love reading horoscopes back in HS and can even interpret the damn thing and i became somewhat of a semi madam bola in HS. but i haven't delved into that for a long time since astrology is prohibited in my faith and i just learned about it not too long ago. and what's up with the new sign? it reads like some exotic snail on a restaurant menu or a lab report. i mean seriously???! @__@

It is a serpent or something hehehe. Zodiac signs have always been fun for me, even the Chinese Zodiac. The personality descriptions are sort of affirmation of how I see myself hehehe. The news wasn't really a big deal to me, I just had fun reading the comments of people.
