That was scary!
Yesterday, there was end-of-the-world-style panic
on Facebook when we "learned" that our zodiac signs had pretty much all changed!
We learned wrong.
You can keep those Scorpio tattoos, because the discovery of a new 13th zodiac sign, Ophiuchus, does NOT apply to Western astrology, and almost definitely doesn't apply to you.
Here's what tarot.com astrologer Jeff Jawer had to say about it:
"When we look at the astrology used in the Western world, the seasonally based astrology has not changed, was never oriented to the constellations, and stands as … has been stated for two millenniums."
"Astrology is geocentric. It relates life on Earth to the Earth’s environment, and seasons are the most dramatic effect, which is why we use the tropical zodiac."
That was a close one! How are you supposed to pick someone up by talking about their zodiac sign when you can't even pronounce it?
We're glad we don't have to worry about U, Ophiuchus!
Did U get caught up in the zodiac panic?
