"Earth's wobble shakes the astrological World"

Today a new astrological chart was published. In one full sweep, the astological signs of many people changed. For example Capricorns became Sagittarians,and in my case, I changed from being a Sagittarian to a new 13th sign called Ophiuchus, which wasn't all that bad, less stubbornness and more wisdom, but a little late in my case though!

New Zodiac sign dates are necessary because for some time now people who assume they are Capricorns are really Sagittarians. A phenomenon called “precession” has moved the Zodiac signs nearly one month to the west in the sky since they were created about 600 B.C. Precession is caused by gravitational forces from the moon and the sun on a bulge in the Earth at the equator. These forces cause the orientation of the Earth’s axis of rotation — what we think of as the poles — to wobble like a spinning top losing momentum. This wobble traces a cone in a cycle that lasts about 26,000 years. During this cycle, the traditional North Star eventually becomes invalid and the Zodiac signs shift. The new zodiac calendar is as follows:

Capricorn: Jan 20-Feb 16
Aquarius: Feb. 16-March 11
Pisces: March 11-April 18
Aries: April 18-May 13
Taurus: May 13-June 21
Gemini: June 21-July 20
Cancer: July 20-Aug. 10
Leo: Aug. 10-Sept. 16
Virgo: Sept. 16-Oct. 30
Libra: Oct. 30-Nov. 23
Ophiuchus: Nov. 23-Dec. 17
Scorpio: Nov. 23-Dec. 17
Sagittarius: Dec. 17-Jan. 20
