OK Denise have you been hitting the shooters again??

Now Really !

Maybe we can't blame the jello shooters this time! I found this:

The constellation, Ophiuchus, has been known since ancient times, and is better known as Serpentarius, the Serpent Holder. Astrologers have not included Ophiuchus in the wheel of Astrological signs because the Sun spends only about nineteen days in this 13th sign of the Mazzaroth. Not that there wasn't a 13th sign in the Heavens, but as far as Astrologers were concerned, the Sun traveled from the constellation 'Scorpius' and then proceeded directly into the sign of Sagittarius. In reality, this was not the case. The Sun, for 19 days of the year, travels through the star constellation 'Ophiuchus' before entering Sagittarius from Scorpius

The signs of the Zodiac are for the most part, the highway, or path on which the Sun takes it's yearly journey across the heavens - as it would appear to Earthlings. These signs are actually star constellations occupying space in which the Sun appears to travels in an earth year. The original twelve signs/constellations: Aries, Taurus, Gemini, Cancer, Leo, Virgo, Libra, Scorpio, Sagittarius, Capricorn, Aquarius, and Pisces are quite familiar to everyone, however, the thirteenth sign and constellation, [Ophiuchus], is in fact, not well known. To acknowledge a 13th sign now would seem awkward for astrologers, who like the tidiness of 12 signs that rule over the 12 houses of the Zodiac. The heavens are alive and they do change after a few thousand years and the astrologer who wants to maintain accuracy must change along with the signs in the heavens.

So, I'm an Aries now????

I'm refusing to change my sign! We can opt out, can't we?

Re: New Astrological Signs - Cubangirl - 02-02-2010

I like being Aquarius as well. If fits my personality better, so I am not switching.

Always been a Leo, always will be it seems - no change! Leo's would not tolerate anyone messing with their sign!

Re: New Astrological Signs - cjs - 02-02-2010
