Well, I refuse to accept that I am now under the sign of Taurus when I know that I exhibit all the (positive) traits of a Gemini!
Your zodiac sign may not actually be your zodiac sign anymore.
Astronomer Parke Kunkle says that due to changes in the Earth’s alignment the dates of many zodiac signs have changed, according to NBC. In addition, there may be a 13th Zodiac sign: Ophiuchus.
Kunkle says that as the Earth and Sun slowly move the signs gradually change, as expected.
The change didn’t happen over night either. The 12 signs were designated to different periods of the year almost 3,000 years ago, when astrology began, and since then the Earth’s position in relation to the sun has changed.
See if your Zodiac sign has changed below. (And find out if your friends’ signs have changed here or under the dates below.)
