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.
A Pisces for example is typically considered kind, thoughtful and generous in their nature. Planet coordinates, their astrological influences and time are all used to generate information for today horoscopes. The Pisces daily horoscope will be based on the movement of the planets in the time between February the 20th and March the 20th. What do pisces go well with.

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.

What are the zodiac sign dates for every star sign? Your zodiac sign, also known as your Sun sign, is based on a range of dates that lasts about a month. If you were born with this date range, you are a member of this zodiac sign.
Although the exact dates can shift plus or minus a day, depending on the year, here are the general zodiac sign dates used by Western (or Tropical) astrology:
WESTERN ASTROLOGY STAR SIGN DATES
The Tropical Zodiac: Stars signs based on seasons, not constellations
In Western astrology, your star sign dates are calculated we use what’s called the Tropical Zodiac, which is based on the seasons. It is calculated by the path of the Sun against the sky, called the ecliptic, as it travels through an imaginary 360-degree circle known as the zodiac.
In second century Alexandria, the great mathematician and astronomer/astrologer Ptolemy created the Tropical Zodiac. It’s is a fixed system that is not affected by changes in the constellations or the Earth’s axis. Ptolemy used the same names for the zodiac signs as he did for the constellations, which is why there is often confusion around the birth date range. The Tropical Zodiac is static and not affected by shifts in the Earth’s axis. It is based on the seasons.
The Tropical Zodiac begins every year with the Aries pseudo-constellation—or the Aries slice of the zodiac wheel—which is based on the position of the Sun at the Spring Equinox on March 21. The Sun enters Cancer on the Summer Solstice, the longest day of the year. It enters Libra at the Fall Equinox, and it enters Capricorn at the Winter Solstice, or the shortest day of the year.
What if I was born on a cusp?
Learn About Your Zodiac Sign
The Sun moves into a new zodiac sign every 30 days, on approximately the same date every year. *However, it can shift by a day from year to year, and that’s why we have the concept of a “cusp” birthday. The myth of the cusp is that you are two star signs, instead of just one. You’re not. Whatever zodiac sign the Sun was traveling through at the moment of your birth determines your star sign. To figure out your exact zodiac sign, you need to know what time you were born. You can do a free chart here to discover what your actual Sun sign is.
I heard there were new zodiac signs, or a 13th sign called Ophiucus? Is this true?
Periodically, astronomers will point to the fact that the Earth’s axis has wobbled and therefore the position of the constellations in relation to us has shifted. They are correct about that. However, they will then announce that there is actually a 13th sign, or a new zodiac sign, called Ophiucus. This is NOT true.
Here’s why: Western astrology is NOT based on the actual positions of the constellations. It is calculated by the Earth’s rotation around the Sun, using a fixed and imaginary circle (or band) around the Sun that is divided into 12 different 30-degree segments.
Vedic Astrology and the Sidereal Zodiac
What Are The Astrological Signs And Dates Fall
Vedic astrology, also known as Jyotish, is the traditional Hindu astrology system. It is based on the Sidereal zodiac, or Nirayana, which is an imaginary 360-degree “belt” of zodiac signs divided into 12 equal sectors. However, Vedic astrology is different from Western astrology in that it measures the fixed zodiac, rather than the moving zodiac. So in Vedic astrology, the Aquarius dates would be February 13-March 12. Go figure!
