13 Zodiac Signs

There are 13 Zodiac Signs : NASA Changes Horoscope Dates New Ophiuchus

Your Zodiac sign might have changed for good. Yes!! according to available information, NASA recently updated the astrological signs for the first time in 2,000 years. The implication of this is that a whopping 86% now have a different zodiac sign. While life will go on, for most people who take pride in their zodiac signs like me a (pieces) and the many people who have tattooed their zodiac sign this will not only come as a shock but also an irritation.

According to NASA, here is what happened.

The world has changed really fast and 3,000 years ago, astronomers didn’t totally understand how the Earth, Sun and Starts navigate. The discoveries of recent centuries has showed that the earth is vast and as such the 12-month calendar (based on the phases of the moon) developed by the Babylonians by dividing the sky into 12 equal parts from looking at 12 distinct constellations by which the sun travels over the course of a year no longer hold true.

Still confused?

The radical change is due to the fact that the sky today is extremely different from what it used to be thousands of year ago and the Earth’s axis no longer point in the same direction. The Babylonians intentional left out Ophiuchus (the new zodiac sign) in order to make a tidy match with their 12-month calendar, ignoring the facts that the sun actually moves through 13 constellations and not 12.

NASA decided to do the math and here are the 13 Zodiac signs.
