A New Zodiac Sign

What's your zodiac sign? Are you a Libra? Virgo? Aries? After yesterday's announcement of the newest and 13th zodiac sign, Ophiuchus, you may want to double check to see if your sign has changed. Those who read their daily horoscope may have to learn to look for their new zodiac and may be very unhappy about this change. There has been a shift in the dates of the Western zodiac calendar, which has resulted in each zodiac starting later than the originals. For example, the calendar once categorized those born between Aug. 23 and Sept. 22 as Virgos, but now that zodiac is for those with a birthday from Sept. 16 to Oct. 30. Thus some Virgos are now Leos. The Babylonians introduced the zodiac over 3,000 years ago, and now NASA decided to throw everyone off by switching up signs.  Though this is not a life or death change, a number of people look at their sign as a guide to life. However, NASA is simply doing their job by studying astronomy and has no time for society’s astrology problems. Has your whole horoscope been a lie this whole time? Are you an Ophiuchus? Take a look: Capricorn: Jan. 20 to Feb. 16 Aquarius: Feb. 16 to March 11 Pisces: March 11 to April 18 Aries: April 18 to May 13 Taurus: May 13 to June 21 Gemini: June 21 to July 20 Cancer: July 20 to Aug. 10 Leo: Aug. 10 to Sept. 16 Virgo: Sept. 16 to Oct. 30 Libra: Oct. 30 to Nov. 23 Scorpio: Nov. 23 to Nov. 29 Ophiuchus: Nov. 29 to Dec. 17 Sagittarius: Dec. 17 to Jan. 20
