This just isn't fair.. not fair I tell you!! I liked being an Aquarius and I refuse to be a Capricorn!
Gawker reports that Astronomers have decided to restore the original Babylonian zodiac and according to the Minnesota Planetarium Society's Parke Kunkle and the new signs representative of our birthdays are now:
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. 23-29.
Ophiuchus:* Nov. 29-Dec. 17.
Sagittarius: Dec. 17-Jan. 20.
Little Gawker note below the new signage states "Discarded by the Babylonians because they wanted 12 signs per year."
Here is the old list:
Aries - March 21 - April 20
Taurus - April 21 - May 21
Gemini - May 22 - June 21
Cancer - June 22 - July 22
Leo - July 23 -August 21
Virgo - August 22 - September 23
Libra - September 24 - October 23
Scorpio - October 24 - November 22
Sagittarius - November 23 - December 22
Capricorn - December 23 - January 20
Aquarius - January 21 - February 19
Pisces - February 20- March 20
I am an Aquarius and have been for almost 46 years now and I absolutely refuse to allow anyone to tell me I am now a Capricorn!
From the Water Carrier to the Goat? I don't think so!
What the heck is Ophiuchus which is a new one if we believe the Minnesota Planetarium Society's Parke Kunkle?
According to Wikipedia, Ophiuchus is the Serpent-bearer.
