I Just Found Out I Am Unbalanced

Which really should come as no surprise to anyone. I have known I am a little off for a number of years, but now I know why. It seems that over the last 3,000 years or so, the earth has been changing it’s position relative to the sun and everything else. Call it universal expansion, or whatever else, we know that everything changes position in the universe over time. This was scientifically proven in Stargate SG-1, I believe they called it “Doppler Shift”. Anyway, moving on from my geekness…it recently came out that the zodiacs have changed as well.

We were all born with an astrological sign. I don’t follow astrology as such, but I do find it amusing every now and then to read my horoscope. I am a Libra with the scales as my sign. Or so I thought. Apparently, the zodiacs themselves have shifted to a number of new dates as well as adding a thirteenth zodiac Ophiuchus. It means “serpent bearer” and is shown by a man grasping a snake. (No, that is not code). The addition of this 13th signs throws all of the dates of the other signs out of whack and gives everyone a new sign.

I liked being a Libra. It fit me pretty well. When anyone called me crazy I could use the scales as a fallback to say “no, I am Libra, I am balanced.” No more. Now, according to the new layout, I am apparently a Virgo. I have no clue what a Virgo is supposed to act like. I have no clue what their personality is like. For my entire life I have lived like a Libra should live … I think.

Fortunately, I don’t follow astrology enough to know if this will change me, if my sun will rise in a different house, or if my moon will align with my chi any differently. I am not even really sure what I just said. The only thing I do know is that I can no longer use the scales to my advantage and now have to rely on a virgin. What?

I am also wondering if this is going to spur a new rash of Zodiac killers, since the old one was wrong now? Too soon?

Here are the new dates and how the signs line up if you are interested. I guess they are still here even if you are not interested.

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

My other question is will this affect my Chinese zodiac as well? I am assuming not since that goes by year and not specific dates as much. I rather like being an “Earth Rooster”. I really don’t know what that means either but with that I am organized and what not.

Every now and then I grab an image off the web, like the one above of the scales, and wonder if I am going to get sued by someone for using their image. For any of you more in the know than I am, does using an image on a blog like this count as fair use or am I setting myself up for a world of hurt? Do I need to start a defense fund?

Anyway, good luck to everyone with your new signs and hopefully it won’t mess you all up. Until next time, remember … “When the moon is in the Seventh House, And Jupiter aligns with Mars; Then peace will guide the planets, And love will steer the stars.”

    I’m not really surprised by the new sign (which I can’t spell). I was a Sagittarius, but it didn’t really fit my personality. However, Ophiuchus does fit me. On a side note, Ophiuchus is also known as Serpentarius. Enjoy being a Virgo.

    • I still think I am going to stay a Libra just because I want to lol. Thanks for posting the link that made me aware of this in the first place!

  2. I’m still a Taurus!
    My daughter is the new thing, Ophiuchus.
