SHESPEAKS Your Power to Influence

What's Your Sign?

What's Your Sign?

People will probably be asking the question, “What’s your sign?” a little more often in days to come.  And with light being shed on some recent information, you may not know how to answer.  Astronomy instructor, Parke Kunkle, let us all in on some old (but new to us) news when he did an interview for the Star Tribune of Minneapolis last Sunday.  He revealed that the Earth is no longer in line with the stars in the same way it was thousands of years ago when the signs of the zodiac were named.  What this means is that the current dates we have assigned to our astrological signs are incorrect.

News of the realigned signs has left many horoscope fans confused about which sign they should think of themselves as.  Many astrologers have become angry of the new assignment of sign dates and have vowed to simply ignore the news.  Astrologer, Jim Sher, told USA Today that he believes the latest news disclosed by an astronomer was an attempt to make astrologers look ignorant.  Another astrologer, Craig Martin, says he was well aware of the news before the interview was published.  Martin says, “We do know about this.  It’s unlikely the astrology community is going to accept what an astronomer is trying to put on them.”

What does all of this mean for you?
  Well, you may not actually be the Taurus or Sagittarious you thought you were.  In fact, your sign may be something entirely different that you’ve never even heard (and may have trouble pronouncing).  They’ve added a 13th sign, due to the revelation of another constellation, named Ophiuchus, the “Serpent Bearer”.  

Have a look below to see if your sign has changed:

Capricorn: Jan. 20th - Feb. 16th
Aquarius:  Feb. 16th - March 11th
Pisces:  March 11th - April 18th
Aries:  April 18th - May 13th
Taurus:  May 13th - June 21st
Gemini:  June 21st - July 20th
Cancer:  July 20th - Aug. 10th
Leo:  Aug. 10th - Sept. 16th
Virgo:  Sept. 16th - Oct. 30th
Libra:  Oct. 30th - Nov. 23rd
Scorpio:  Nov. 23rd - Nov. 29th
Ophiuchus:  Nov. 29th - Dec. 17th
Sagittarius:  Dec. 17th - Jan. 20th

    I've been hearing different things about this. Some people say it only affects people born after 2009 and some say it affects everyone. I've been pretty much ignoring it until it becomes mainstream.

    I was born a Libra but am now a Virgo??? That makes no sense to me. I dont like that they just all the sudden up and change things, it makes it all so confusing, and what makes them so smart anyway?

    For 57 years I have been a Cancer, now I'm a Gemini. I was and always will be a Cancer, sign of the crab and a water lover....oh well, maybe if I live to be 100, it will go back to Cancer.
