the zodiac is changing??

my boyfriend read sopmething about this last night, and AE posted me a link today.. im still in disbelief

A Minnesota astronomer confirms what many have suspected: Your horoscope is quite possibly wrong.
Earth's shifts on its axis over the past 3,000 years have changed the 12 zodiac signs. For example, think your sign is Aquarius? You may be a Pisces. (There's also a 13th sign, Ophiuchus, that's based on a constellation the ancient Babylonians threw out for symmetry thousands of years ago.)
So who's to blame for this scam on zodiac devotees?
The ancient Babylonians based the zodiac on which constellation the sun appeared to be in when a person was born. Since then, the moon's has exerted a gravitation pull on Earth, causing a "wobble" on its axis that has shifted the stars' alignment by about a month, the Minneapolis Star-Tribune reports.

"Because of this change in the tilt, the Earth is over here and the sun is in a different constellation than it was 3,000 years ago when this study of the stars began," astronomer Parke Kunkle told the Twin Cities' KARE-TV.
The shift isn't new, Kunkle says -- the zodiac world just hasn't taken the wobble into account.
Here's your new sign below:
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

  3. Oh that's okay then. *is relieved*

    2009? And they've only just realised? O.o

    I don't like it, I love zodiacs and this just seems bizarre to me.

  4. I was told about this a number of years ago, its been wrong for a long time now.

    The original zodiac is referred to as a tropical zodiac or some shit. I have yet to find a single book on zodiac signs that incorporates the 13th sign though, nor have I seen any magazines or articles include start signs for Ophiuchus lol.

  6. I just read that this is false. No-one's zodiac has changed. So I'm still a Pisces, yay. :)

    It was all a hoax apparently.

  9. I *think* it's correct. Though, in all honestly everywhere is saying something different. I certainly hope the article is correct. I want to be a Pisces. D:

  11. I am NOT a Pisces. I don't care what they say. I'm an Aries.

  12. Aha, I would never fit as a Gemini so I'm glad I'm still a Cancer. This quite weird though. Never heard of this till today.

  15. I am definately not a taurus. I will still be getting my gemini tattoo next.

  16. Im certainly a Taurus! it matches me almost exactly! O_o I am NOT an Aries!

  17. I heard about this a few days ago -- it's weird, I'm a Cap, but I've always had traits of a Sag. According to the new chart, I should be a Sag. But if it only affects people born after 2009, it doesn't matter anyway!

    My Chinese Zodiac has ALWAYS been much more accurate than my celestial zodiac...no idea why, but it always is.

    Capricorn Forever!!!
