I dun know..But out of all the sign signs, I am pretty sure that I can be anything but a "VIRGO"..!! ..Come on guys It's been 23 years that have been a "LIBRA"n..an now it is really hard for me to believe that I have Changed for and developed some extraordinary qualities without putting up any extra effort!! It bemuses me, rather confuses me...Who the hell am I???..
THE BACKGROUND STORY..
About 2,000 years ago, the astrological signs and the astronomical ones were the same. But they are not anymore. The locations of the signs are based on the sun's location on the first day of the spring. That location in the sky has slowly drifted westward because of something called "precession" -- the earth continually wobbles (a scientific term for a slight motion) every 26,000 years. Since the constellations were first identified, they have shifted some 30 degrees. Translation: The signs have slipped about a month westward, relative to the stars.
If you follow astrology that is linked to the constellations, your sign would go from say, a Gemini to a Taurus and all this has been because of a new entrant ..the 13th sign, OPHIUCHUS..!!..
So has the sign really changed??..
Actually, there are different branches of astrology. A main Eastern form, for example, called Sidereal astrology, looks to the background stars, those famous constellations, as its guide. Western astrology -- which uses the zodiac -- has its signs fixed to the seasons.
According to the Assistant Director of Morrison Planetarium at the California Academy of Sciences, Mr. Bing Quock, For those who follow Western astrology, "astrologers are not talking about the constellations at all. When an astrologer says the sun is in a certain sign, they're talking about the sign, the location relative to the equinox. They're not talking about the location of the constellations. "..
So basically, if you follow the Sidereal astrology, the Eastern branch, your sign may have shifted...and if not ..then everything is as normal as ever..!!..
For me..I am still confused..the thought of incurring such ingenious traits is making me appreciate myself more and more..I think I am gonna ditch "LIBRA"..for my new "VIRGO".. Come on people..Who the hell in this world doesn't like to be called a "PERFECTIONIST"..??!!!..
