New Zodiac Sign

By the time you read this, you probably have heard that your zodiac sign have changed. I’m not really a horoscope fan, but it’s good to know that there is a new 13th zodiac sign added between Scorpio and Sagittarius. The new sign is called Ophiuchus and is represented in art as a man holding a large snake with both hands.

It’s interesting to know that after so many years, something like the zodiac signs would change. I used to belong to Pisces. Sometimes it’s one of those getting-to-know you questions and I’m used to say that I belong to Pisces. Since the introduction of Ophiuchus, I’m beginning to say Aquarius instead. Before, both Oreo and I belong to Pisces. Now, I belong to Aquarius and he belongs to Capricorn. I haven’t checked yet if we’re still compatible. I hope we still are.

According to Wikipedia, Ophiuchus means “Serpent-bearer” and as early as 1995, the idea of a 13-sign zodiac was already been suggested. Well, we only heard about this in the news this year :)

According to Minnesota Planetarium Society, here are the new dates for the zodiac signs. BTW, the article appeared here. Did you zodiac changed?
