What’s Your Sign?

Did you read your horoscope this morning? If so, you may have read the wrong one. A new report by the Minnesota Planetarium Society shows the signs have shifted, and a new 13th sign was added. That means if you were a Taurus, you may be an Aries. And if you were a Sagittarius, you may now be an Ophiucus – the snake handler that now falls between Scorpio and Sagittarius. According to astronomer Parke Kunkle, the earth is now in a different spot in relation to the sun than where it was 3,000 years ago, when the study of astrology began. That’s when the 12 zodiac signs were assigned to the 12 different times of the year. Here is the Minnesota Planetarium Society’s revised astrological calendar:
 
Capricorn
January 20-February 16
Aquarius
February 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
