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
In the days and weeks to come, it is my intent to post photos and share my many rich and fulfilling Arizona experiences. Hopefully, this blog will engender and create an interest on the part of the reader to know more about the diversity of the "Grand Canyon State" and possibly visit. (November 23rd, 2009)
I was born and raised in the cold country of Minnesota. After spending thirty seven years in education, retirement in Arizona was my answer. Today, my interests and passions include traveling, playing tennis and being with my grandchildren.
