Skip to comments.Astrologers Deem and Pass a New Zodiac Sign

I've read a few things that it all may be a hoax, but as we all probably know by now there apparently is a new sign, I called it out...not that you wont be able to recognize it, ObamaCare is easier to read...

I'm not going to elaborate any further because I'm not a trained astrologist. I don't want to pontificate on these things because your astrological sign has a lot to do with your identity. Which is worrisome for me because Socrates said "know thyself," and that's a problem because my new sign is the new guy on the list. I can't even pronounce it, let alone know what it will do to my soul.
......I don't even know who I am anymore.
Another reason this stinks is if you thought Leos, for example, were douches because a certain sitting president - who shall remain nameless - was one, and you hit your knees praising God that you are a and still get to be a Cancer....after you explain to Him what a Zodiac is...following this change, do you think he'll answer your prayer to change it all back because said president is now a Cancer too?
People actually use this crap to determine their futures via horoscope and figure out their relationships with other people based on which sign they're most compatible with.
And now it's all about to change with the snap of a finger because of some sign nobody can even begin to pronounce, which is probably why they left it out in the first place.
For people who believe this stuff, this should put truth to the lie that it's totally meaningless. Not that most people needed to be told that in the first place, but a lot of people believe in its power.
Considering that astrologers are a typically liberal bunch, I wonder what they think this all means relative to they way they poop themselves over the so-called "war on science" conservatives wage against issues like global warming (My horoscope will tell me how much you hate science).
On a different note...Hey University of Arizona...what's your new sign?
"We're With Stupid"
I never knew that there was a constellation Ophrah.
There is one but it covers about half the sky , so we don’t notice it that much.
Just in time for the new Oprah network... :)
Next you’ll tell me that Pluto isn’t a planet!
Oh, the “deemed” it, did they. IF, and it’s a big IF, the stars have any influence on human births, changing the names and dates of the signs does not change where the stars were aligned on the day of one’s birth.
New sign: Old hoax:
(had my future all set and now this).
How does this affect the passing of the great year which has used 12 zodiac signs since well before the time of Ptolemy and Christ even? Are we actually in the age of Aquarius now or are we further back in the age of Pisces? I don’t think I care for this. It breaks with over 2,000 years of tradition.
I’m a Taurus. Been a Taurus my whole life.
Now they tell me I’m an Aries. F em.
I’m a Taurus.
Maybe some of them wishy-washy signs don’t care if you jerk their chain, but I’m a Taurus.
And I ain’t changing!
No wonder I feel like throwing up sometimes.
Hey, I used to be an Aries. Can I have your birth-sign and we'll see if we can't trade my Pisces to some Taurus guy somewhere.
I’ve been a Virgo for - well, many years. Now I’m suddenly a Leo? Leo is fine, but I just don’t feel like a Leo. What’s the story? The change probably applies to those born under the new Zodiac, say, in the last year. So I’m probably still Virgo. :-)
Boy, She was a Lion!
I think it’s all a big fake.
Look at the new sign name.
Someone, somewhere is having one ROFLOMAO moment
I smell a Kwanza and Festivus moment. Nobody will deny my Scorpio destiny!
The ecliptic itself doesn't change its position in the sky. It is the celestial equator which precesses with the earth's axis, so this has nothing to do with the perennial controversy caused by the signs drifting away from the constellations as they appear in the sky.
I note that Ptolemy, in his astrological work TETRABIBLOS, attributes the significance of the signs to their correlation with the solstices and equinoxes, and separately mentions the influence of various stars in the zodiacal constellations and others, including Ophiuchus.
BTW, I noticed an astrology item on the TV news last night, and I suppose it was about this, although I didn't really catch it.
Sorry, I was born a Cancer and will always be a Cancer.
This new listing is a bunch of scatological nonsense.
