Don't Panic! Your Zodiac Sign Is The Same

| Filed under: Wacky, Tacky & True

zodiac sign drama

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?

  3. 3

    it's hilarious! people actually think they have it ALL figured out. everything is bull shit - including 'god'. it's just a way for apes like us to make sense of the world. Just because people believe it, doesn't make it honest and true. LAME-O's!

    Ummmmm so he is basically saying our astrology isn't based on the constellations? HAHAHA Seriously so stupid! This is just some annoying "psychic" trying to keep you all getting your daily horoscopes.



  7. 7

    Nope because I am a Cap, and we don't panic like that.

    Astrology is for fucking idiots.

  10. 10

    Nope didn't buy into it.. the new one would have me fall under a taurus.. i am a gemini to the T.. ive read many descriptions on the signs.. and I am definitely 100% gemini.. and hardly reflective of a taurus lol



  11. 11

    Scary? There are more important things to be worried about



  12. 12

    well seeing as they said it would only effect those born after 2009, it didnt bother me…although i did wonder how i would explain my tattoo lol



  13. 13

    I didn't think it was legit. The "new" version would have me under Leo which is not me at all. I am a total Virgo through and through.



  14. 14

    Astrology is for insecure idiots.



  15. 15

    Yes my world got turned upside down. But there was no way I wasn't a Pisces, no way!

    Re: Deadwing

    I agree with this guy. Astrology is for patchuli smoking woodspice compost munching muffballs.



  17. 17

    People that believe in this shit should give me all of their money. So I can spend it on more constructive things than stupid fairy land nonsense.



  18. 18

    Yes, stupidly. I thought I'd become an Ophiucus, something that sounds like a vaginal disease.



  19. 19

    For anyone who ever thinks the world is going to end "today", just remember it is already tomorrow in Australia.



  20. 20

    I don't care what the new chart says,I'm a Leo until the day I die



  21. 21

    sigh .. i'm an astrologer.. the ophiuchus crap is bullshit.



  22. 22

    Gees… I have know about this for about 10 years… get over it.



  23. 23

    GEMENI TIL THE DAY I DIE!

    Re: BunnyBoo
    Tropical astrology isnt based on constellations. Vedic/sidereal astrology is.



  25. 25

    The new chart I saw wasn't adding a sign, it was taking into account that the moon has pulled on the earth and CHANGED where we are in relation to the stars, so what was Taurus back then, by dates, is now really Ares, the sign ahead of it…



  26. 26

    yea i did, not gonna lie. i felt bad for the people that have their sign tattooed on them. i don't know it does make sense though that your sign will eventually change. but w.e i'm still a Scorpio no matter what!!! XD….There's no way i'm a fucking Virgo now!!!!



  27. 27

    wow astrology is nothing but mumbo jumbo and if you believe that it is in anyway real i have some magic beans to sell you!
    also you might want to know that santa claus isn't real and stepping on a crack will not in fact break your mother's back

    Re: The Astrology Hoax
    I'm not sure what kind of kufuffle was going down, but zodiac signs are delegated based on the positions of constellations thousands of years ago. Space has moved a lot since then…

    SO nobody really is technically the zodiac sign they think they are. "Western" astrology is definitely affected by these rules, and Ophiuchus does exist as and *sometimes* applies to it. Just, astrology today is a bastardized version of what it once was and was standardized so people wouldn't have to keep up. It's called conventional astrology, and it's catered toward the masses.

    Eastern/Vedic astrology is another cup of tea altogether - it's based on Moon signs and doesn't use any of the same names or borders as Western's preference towards the Sun…though some websites liken the names to Western names, in order to make things easier for the curious semi-informed.

    Ophiuchus governs such a small amount of time that it was omitted from the conventional chart. I should know, I fall under the Ophiuchus Sun sign :) …my old alias, "mia_sagophi", was a fun little play on Sagittarius/Ophiuchus. The description is pretty accurate, for a pseudo-science. But if I were to follow the rules and take actual positions into account, I'd be a Libra Sun or something. Whatever, lol.

    That's a pretty hilarious hoax though, especially because of all of the tattoos out there. Mad kudos to whoever pulled it off. A little knowledge is a dangerous thing.
