…I don’t know anymore!
I couldn’t believe it when I heard that the Zodiac signs had changed. I kept telling people at work that “they” changed the zodiac signs. I’m not sure who “they” are, and when I go check my horoscope it still says the original twelve. But yea… “they” changed them. You can read about it here, among many other place.
I was born April 2 which made me an Aries. Now, according to the “new” zodiac, I’m a Pisces. Some signs didn’t change (like B’s! He’s still a Pisces) but most did.
The old Zodiac:
Now it is discovered that it should be broken up like this:
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
This confuses me for many reasons. Why is Scorpio only 6 days? Why do all the beginning/end dates overlap (like my sister Min is a Nov. 23 baby… is she a Libra or Scorpio?) And… WHAT IS OPHIUCHUS?
I was immediately sad that I have become an Pisces. Let’s investigate.
A description of an Aries:
Strengths: Courage, determination, self-confidence, enthusiasm.
Weaknesses: Impatience, silly arguments, allowing fear to limit choices.
Charismatic marks: Athletic body, youthful attitude, a need to take the lead.
Likes: Comfortable clothes, taking the lead, physical challenges, individual sports.
Dislikes: Inactivity, delays, work that doesn’t use one’s talents.
Best environment: Any situation that requires action, courage in the face of fear, competition, and freedom of choice. Aries individuals are better outside being active than staying close to home.
The weaknesses might as well say my name on them. EXACTLY. I’m not as courageous or athletic as they claim. But all Aries can’t be athletes right? Aries are outgoing, strong-willed individuals. It’s a fit. So, um, yep! I relate.
Pisces, on the other hand:
Strengths: Intuitive, compassionate, artistic, gentle, wise, musical.
Weaknesses: Can be a victim or martyr, fearful, overly trusting, sad, desire to escape reality.
Charismatic marks: Soft, sometimes frail to medium build. Face easily shows emotion.
Likes: Spiritual themes, time alone, visual media, time to sleep, romance, music, swimming.
Dislikes: Know-it-alls, the past coming back to haunt, being criticized, cruelty of any kind.
Best environment: On or near water, especially the sea. The movie theater.
In this profile, the dislikes hit the nail on the head for me. But I think they probably do for lots of people. I also like water. But that’s about it. I’m so not a Pisces!
Who does this change suck for the most? People who have zodiac tattoos, definitely.
Anyway, it’s poll time! Did your sign change? What do you think about this? Does your new sign fit you at all? Do you think this is even legit?
I’m probably thinking into this too much. Oh well!
PS- I’m dying to find someone who is an Ophiuchus! Anyone? Bueller?
