Do you swear by your horoscope? Do you feel like you are a perfect Libra or Virgo, or Leo? Do feel like your monthly horoscope is always accurate?
Well, you could be completely and utterly wrong about everything because NASA reports there are actually 13 constellations in the Zodiac, rather than 12.
This new constellation is called Ophiuchus, and if your birthday is between November 29 and December 17, you actually fall under this sign.
Naturally, people are questioning everything now.
It’s not actually new, though; its been around for millions of years, and people have just chosen to ignore it. I feel you, Ophiuchus.
Its sign is a man holding a snake called a Serpentarius (that’s the man’s name, not the snake’s), and people born under it seek peace and harmony, are poetic and inventive and have thirsts for knowledge but also secret enemies in their close circles… How dramatic.
And that means the rest of us have probably been under the wrong star sign. Here is the updated list of horoscopes, according to Modern Astrologers:
•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 – August 10
•Leo: August 10 – September 16
•Virgo: September 16 – October 14
•Libra: October 14 – November 23
•Scorpio: November 23 – November 29
•Ophiuchus: November 29 – December 17
•Sagittarius: December 17 – January 20
So the Babylonians were wrong, you ask? Nope. They apparently were well aware there are 13 constellations, but had already decided on a 12-month calendar, so chose to leave the 13th one out.
So basically, they intended for us all to have a crisis when we realized their dumb calendar is wrong, and as a result, we actually have no idea who we are.
