Sofia Whitcombe began her day with the startling realization that she might not be exactly who she thought she was.
“My whole life, I thought I was a Capricorn,” the 25-year-old New York publicist said. “Now I’m a Sagittarius? I don’t feel like a Sagittarius!”
Exactly what I am thinking. I sure don't feel like one either. And as I said earlier I will always be a Capricorn in my mind.
Here are what the supposed new dates for each sign are and the new sign:
YOUR REAL HOROSCOPEAstrology buffs who follow the stars should be using these dates, reflecting where the stars currently are aligned (note: the days overlap because the periods don't begin and end at midnight): 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.Scorpio: Nov. 23-29. Ophiuchus:* Nov. 29-Dec. 17. Sagittarius: Dec. 17-Jan. 20.
* Discarded by the Babylonians because they wanted 12 signs per year.
Notice how some of the date ranges have changed only a little. Apparently someone born on August 24 is no longer a Virgo, but someone born on September 16 still is a Virgo. May 15 is apparently still a Taurus but May 24 is no longer a Gemini. And notice how Virgo is said to now run from September 16 to October 30, and Scorpio is now said to be just for six days November 23 through 29. The new sign Ophiuchus runs after Scorpio and before Sagittarius.
Just who are we? No doubt most people will always feel they are what they always thought they were. Those who believe in reading horoscopes may be want to read both of their apparent signs just to be on the safe side.
