What’s your sign, babe?

Tonight on the news, I heard something a little surprising. All these years I thought I was a Cancer and according to new research, I may in fact be a Gemini. Several astronomers have stated that Earth is in a different position in relation to the Sun than it was 3,000 years ago when the study of astrology began and signs were assigned to different periods in the year. Scientists have known about these changes since 500 B.C. and the horoscope calendar never changed. I say if it isn’t broke, don’t fix it.



I’m not super into psychic readings and what the stars have in store, but if you look at the characteristics for a Cancer, that is me. Emotional, trustworthy, loving, protective and moody at times. It might as well say “Jules” under the description. I couldn’t imagine switching signs and I don’t intend to. I thought it was interesting and worth sharing.

For fun, here is the new zodiac calendar:

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

What is your sign and do you relate to the characteristics under your sign?

I don't care about the new horoscope :p
For the past 24 years I'm a Gemini and I will remain that way.
Being Gemini is fun!! And pisses people off.Taurus is so blah for me lol
They should think better before changing signs.
Thanks for posting this :D

I just heard this on the radio, too! It said that I am now a Cancer instead of a Leo- and I've always said I seemed like more of a Cancer than anything! There's my confirmation, lol!

Kathie @ Just a Happy Housewife said...

dang it, I'm still a Leo! I don't think it fits me at all.

Hannah @ The New Black said...

I just go switched to a Pisces. Weird. Oh well, I don't know anything about the signs anyways! ☺

MCW said...

I was a Gemini and now apparently I am a Taurus...
I fir the Taurus "levelheaded and slow to erupt." However it says that when she does erupt she can become violent! ha. Not me at all!

Melissa said...

I've always been a Capricorn, but according to this, I'd be a Sagittarius. I'm not going to change what sign I am :P

Mel said...

No way am I a Libra (according to these new signs). I'm a Scorpio through and through. :)

April said...

I will always be a Taurus no matter where the stars may align themselves.

Elizabeth said...

I am a total LEO!!! :-) Cute little post!

I have announced my book that I will be using for my book club. Stop on by my blog to sign up!!

Dana said...

Whew...my sign did not change a bit. Go Picses

zentmrs said...

What on earth is an Ophiuchus? Apparently I am! Mysterious!

The Frog Queen said...

This bummed me out when I heard about it also. Now way!!!

Despite what that says....I am staying a Scorpio, thank you very much :D

Cheers!

Gwen said...

How odd! I'm a Capricorn through and trough. Not even a little big Sagittarius so they can bite me. :) XOXO

Megan said...

hahaha I got a completely new sign, Ophiuchus! That's no fun. I'll stick with being a Saggitarius, thankyaverymuch :)

Sara said...

I'm not loving my new sign either! What was wrong with the old system? I think I'll always be a Capricorn, I don't care what anyone says. Plus, how can I possibly be a Sagittarius when I don't even know what that is?! Seriously?!

BroncoMom said...

Hhmmm. All this time I thought Pieces fit me perfectly. You know daydreamer,loyal and loving. I'll get back with you on my new sign, lol.

Natalie said...

I actually have heard this before. I just read both and pick which one I like better :)

living well said...

I'm a cancer too and think I fit it all too well! I can't believe that I might actually be a Gemini... I refuse haha! (Especially since I've always complained about Geminis!! Eek!)

Brittany said...

So my bday is Sept. 16 which puts me on the line of a leo and virgo. So do I get to pick? lol. My whole life I thought I was a Virgo and I fit it to a T so I think I'll stay with that :)

daisymay aka Chantele said...

Mine changed to Aires, but I don't believe it for a second! I'm a Taurus through and through, it couldn't be more on target. This is really interesting though, but I will stick with my original sign!!

Have a great weekend!

Leeann @ Join the Gossip said...

I keep hearing that the sign has changed, or it only changes for those born in 2009, or 2011. I don't know what to believe! I am/was a Leo and it fit me. But according to the new breakdown I'd be a Cancer which also seems somewhat like me (from that picture above :)!

Kristin said...

Apparently I'm a Libra now after being on the cusp of Scorp and Sag my whole life. Weird!

Sandy a la Mode said...

i actually heard that it only applies for people born after 2009! so i think you are still the same horoscope, unless you are only 2! ;)

Krista said...

Going from Sag to Scorpio isn't an easy move! I've been chasing Scorpio across the sky my whole life! I wonder why there are only 6 days of Scorpio and like 4-6 weeks of all the other signs? Strange.

SassyScorp said...

100% Scorp here. No way am I a Libra.

Meghan said...

I've always been a Gemini (and I totally agree with the typical traits), but am now a Taurus. I think I am now stubborn:)
