Last year, news crept up that 2016 was going to make a slightly different zodiac system — some cited NASA for the change — with a thirteenth constellation added, thereby altering all the zodiac dates and in many cases, changing peoples’ zodiac signs.

That 13th constellation — called Ophiuchus, which is a guy holding a snake — is a real, true thing, but it’s not quite so simple that some of you will automatically be thrown under a new zodiac sign!

According to Snopes, the people who are paid to pretty much debunk ridiculous rumors and myths exactly like this, while Ophiuchus is a thirteenth constellation, that zodiac actually won’t be recognized in the Western Hemisphere.

They claim:

“But leading astrological experts say this won’t change things at all. That’s because Western astrology strictly adheres to the tropical zodiac, which is fixed to seasons. The sidereal zodiac, observed in the East, is the one affixed to constellations, and is thus the one that would change. The tropical zodiac has been in place since Ptolemy’s in the second century.”

Oh… well then!

Long story short, while constellations may be part of astrology (duh), the field is geocentric, and by relating to the Earth and Earth’s environment, our astrology cycles are held more to seasons more than stars — at least, in the West.

If you’re based in Eastern astrology, then congratulations — your sign may have just changed!!

In other words, for those of you who are in the Western Hemisphere, as you read this weekend from a variety of different outlets that the stars are changing and your sign is different, don’t believe it!

It’s not really true.

Still, that didn’t stop people from freaking out about it (below):

LOLz!!

At least now, all of you know the truth!!
