"New" Zodiac Sign Dates

Friday, January 14, 2011

You might have heard about this online, the news, or from people who might be complaining about their sign being changed (maybe those especially who have their zodiacs tatted to themselves). Apparently, the Earth's alignment has changed its position from the Sun which changes the positions of the constellations we see thanks to the moon's gravitational pull. Our zodiac signs were determined by which constellation the Sun was in on the day you were born.

The "new" dates are as follows*:
Capricorn - Jan 20 to Feb 16
Aquarius - Feb 16 to Mar 11
Pisces - Mar 11 to Apr 18
Aries - Apr 18 to May 13
Taurus - May 13 to Jun 21
Gemini - Jun 21 to Jul 20
Cancer - Jul 20 to Aug 10
Leo - Aug 10 to Sep 16
Virgo - Sep 16 to Oct 30
Libra - Oct 30 to Nov 23
Scorpius - Nov 23 to Nov 29
Ophiuchus - Nov 29 to Dec 17
Sagittarius - Dec 17 to Jan 20

*This supposedly were the originally dates which the Babylonians intended it to be. However, they discarded the Ophiuchus sign because they wanted 12 signs.

Ophiuchus, the unfamiliar name, is also the image shown in this post. It's Greek for "serpent-bearer".

However, this information isn't suppose to change any horoscope readings (you are still the same old zodiac sign you are). Ophiuchus is a constellation but it is NOT a sign. There are also many people that think it applies to those born after 2009, but that isn't true either.

There is more information about it here, and here.

Although, I really don't think this should be taken so seriously. You are who you are, don't let your zodiac sign define you.

OH, thanks for this post! I've been hearing about it, but never got around to check what the fuss is all about. Thank God, I am still Taurus - wouldn't want to become anything else. I bet people whos sign did change are feeling a little bit weird at the moment.

k said...

haha so interesting :) I don't take this too seriously though. But wait - so our "sign" doesn't change? I was always on the line anyway but I like the sound of capricorn better :)

sexyinhecity said...

thanks for visiting sexyinthecity. You have a lovely blog and it's very interesting!

Sherin said...

I love saying I'm a Leo (which, apparently, I'm not anymore), but I've never taken horoscopes seriously at all. I can't remember the last time I read mine. It's still interesting that they've all changed though.

Gertrude said...

Thanks for stopping by! I'm still a Saggitarius! x

Sweet said...

I am forever a Sagittarius hhehehe no doubt about that...

Chantele Cross-Jones said...

An interesting read! My sign wouldn't change either way, so I'm all good.

Anonymous said...

I had no idea it was changed. I loved being a gemini because I liked the pronunciation!!!! haha.
Thanks for sharing.


Chicago Chic said...

Wow, this is so interesting lady!! Thanks for sharing, how crazy!

Have an amazing weekend my friend.

Cafe Fashionista said...

My sign stayed the same - Sagittarius! :)

Maddy said...

I heard abou this :( A little bummed I'm no longer a Libra...I love my sign!

Bonnie said...

I will still consider myself a Scorpio. Even though I hate my color (topaz yellow -- ick), I identify with the traits too strongly to deny my Scorpio-ness. Besides, a Scorpio is how I was born, so a Scorpio is how I will die.


sbot said...





I know there's been so much commotion about this over the past day or so. People are freaking out! My sign didn't change either way but so interesting to know that it's not a sign.

Have a great weekend! xoxo

Couture Carrie said...

Hmmmmmm guess I'm a Libra now, but I still feel like a Scorpio!


Sylwia said...

Krysten @ Why Girls Are Weird said...

modanista junkie said...

Ugh I know.. I heard about this. :( Now I'm a Ophiuchus. Missing the sag! BUT you are so right at the end. We are who we are. Love it.

Happy Friday!


Tiffany Kadani said...

Sooo interesting! I don't believe in this stuff but my eighth grade self totally does and it very confused.

Lila said...

I've never taken signs seriously but had to admit I fit my profile. I wonder if I will fit my new one? Very interesting indeed.

Blair Nastasi said...

Sooo interesting! But I tend to agree, you are who you are and should not be defined by a "sign"!

Isabel said...

this threw me for a loop

Fashion Cappuccino said...

I just heard about it yesterday from one of my friends and it kind of upsets me a little bit. I'm a Saggitarious and I'm obssessed with my horoscope! So now, apparently I'm a Scorpio...No way! haha..yeah, I'm pretty sure I'll always be a Saggitarious. xoxoxoxoo

Rachel @ The Haute Notes said...

This whole thing is so confusing! I also heard it was only for people born after 2009, so I have no idea.
According to the new dates though, I'm a Leo now, not a Virgo. But we'll just say I'm still a Virgo. Lol! :P

Hope you have a great weekend!

Tiffany Monet said...

Thank you so much for the sweet comment! =)

You have a new follower! xoxo

Grace said...

Haha, this is weird! I always thought my sign described me perfectly. But I guess I'm a Pisces now?

Oh to Be a Muse said...

i was born at the end of february, and i am too much of a pisces to be anything else. that's my sign no matter what anything else says! :)


Style, She Wrote said...

How interesting -- and kinda confusing! Will definitely have to follow up and look at those links. xo style, she wrote

A.n.E said...

It is kinda funny, the sudden confusion of being 'categorized' as some other star sign! Crisis inducing. Great post too! I hardly read the news so I would have probably been clueless about this if it wasn't for you. :)

p.s It was sweet of you to drop us a line :p

Unknown said...

This confused me so much, I hate all these changes :(

Inez said...

It's interesting, I'm a taurus....

Phelanie said...

hi! I'm glad you found us. this sign thing is so crazy, I agree with you about not needing it at the end of the day!

E said...

Crap! I'm a Taurus now!

stylefrontier said...

Oh so glad it doesnt change! greaet to know im still a taurus LOL.
it wouldnt make sense if it changes suddenly
but still i agree with you. we are who we are

cathy. said...

I'm so confused as to what that means, but I'm fairly sure I'll live :)



I read about this - how clever of you to write about it. Thank you

LivingTheVogue said...

This is so strange to me... why would they change the signs only now??? I don't know about that. Anyway I remain a Leo (thank God!) ;-)

Sharon Lei said...

Ha ha.. when I first heard about the "13th sign" and how our signs could possibly be affected.. I was thinking there is no way my sign will change.. and of course it did... but I didn't care.. I will ALWAYS be a Leo no matter what. :)

Hope you are well my dear!! Happy Weekending.

xx Love & Aloha
