13th Sign of Zodiac Revealed: NASA Says Your Zodiac Sign Could Be Wrong
You thought you're an Aquarius when you're supposed to be a Capricorn. You've fantasized over your horoscope readings thinking that the last quarter of 2016 could bring you good luck and charm, being a Libran, Gemini, or Cancer, or the exact opposite for being a Virgo and Scorpio.
But what if there's a movement on the zodiac signs? Would your life change? Would you panic and lose direction in the remaining three months, and just plead for the potential string of bad luck to take effect the following year? Would you ever think that your life is a lie and that everything that the horoscope tells you and has told you for the past years are nothing but a big lie?
"All my clients are freaking out," Shelley Ackerman, a New York-based astrologer, was quoted as saying by The Guardian. Ackerman's clients, like many believers of star signs worldwide, were among those confused by NASA's recent blogpost, which identified Ophiuchus as the thirteenth zodiac sign.
In 1977, Lee Shapiro, former Director of the Abrams Planetarium at Michigan University, pointed out that astronomical information does not equate to astrology. "I can agree that such influences do exist. However, I point out that while it is obvious there are cosmic influences, especially from the sun and the moon, there is no evidence that positions of the heavenly bodies can be used to predict the actions or characteristics of individuals," he wrote in article for the Planetarian.
In a separate article, A Time for Science director Brian Baker noted that the thirteenth sign was, in fact, a result of the movement of the earth's axis. "Your zodiac is essentially off by a couple of months, and this has been true for a long time," Baker told Wate.com. "It's something that slowly changes over thousands of years." Ophiuchus is said to have taken parts of the Scorpion month.
Here is the new order of the 13 zodiac signs, according to NASA:
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
