I was born on the cutoff between Sagittarius and Ophiuchian(?). I guess I'll have to do some research to find how it is determined so I'll know what I am and how to behave. Or maybe not...

I've decided I'm going with the expert recommendation and staying a Sagittarian. I mean, people listen to Paul Krugman regarding economics and politics. No reason I can't go with Moonrabbit on astrology.

I was a Scorpio all my life. But now according to the new dates I'm a Libra.

Or in baseball terms, I'm now a Libra with an asterisk

I read somewhere a while back (can't find with a quick google) that in the US we spend roughly twice the money on consulting astrologers than we do on astronomy research.

I used to have fun with astrologers. When in the 70s it was a big deal. Instead of saying hi it was What's your sign? And there were fairs of astrological readings.

They wanted Birth date and time, to be really accurate in their readings. So I'd get in line, when it was my turn, gave them the info and added, by the way it was 2 am plus seven hours from here. Oh and I was born at home on the living room couch, with a midwife assisting, and my brother came home three sheets to the wind right in the middle of my gracing the world with my presence. Does that matter?

Heh, they always choked, and mumbled something about that being really difficult. I just smiled and said, yeah it must be and walked.

So I guess now I'm a Scorpio, until the next update. Any day now.

Apparently there's always been 2 versions of the zodiac and every few years someone brings it up - at least that's what the astrologer said on cnn...here's more info in this:

There's no way I'm not my original sign...hahahahaha

I can't even attempt to pronounce my new sign.

Hmmm, somehow I feel unlucky today...better check my horoscope.

So what was your original sign bright eyed? I always thought Virgo, my original sign, seemed like a good fit. There is a certain symmetry in being a Leo though. After all, it is the feline sign

No wonder I'm so bull-headed! It's not my fault. Unknown to all, I've been a Taurus all these years.

i am so absolutely 150% what my sign says that i make most people with my sign look like some other sign, it is really scary! now if i followed this new method i'd back up 1 sign and that sign is 180 degrees different than what i am.

no way this nonsense could be true! but wait.... which nonsense? the current or new nonsense?

astrology is basically akin to witchcraft and voodoo. it boggles my mind how anyone could believe in it and i must be correct because my sign says i am extremely logical... and i am.
