Change In The Zodiac

 Hello Friends, How is everyone today? Subject for my blog today is change in the zodiac. They have added a new zodiac sign because the moon’s gravitational pull has made the Earth “wobble” around its axis in a process called precession resulting about a one-month bump in the stars’ alignment. We now have 13 signs the new one being called Ophiuchus moving everybody back a month. I was born an Aquarius but i  have always felt that i had traits of both Aquarius and Capricorn, i always read both horoscopes and i have always felt i should be called a cappaquar, there is no such sign but there should have been  lol. I was born on the cusp of Capricorn and Aquarius. "Let me explain what that means". Because the solar disc has a diameter of approximately half a degree, it is possible for the Sun to straddle the cusp as it moves across the sky. When this occurs at the moment of birth such a person is said to be "born on the cusp" and some believe that their life is influenced by the characteristics of both signs, this is exactly how i feel. For example, if an individual was born when the Sun (by convention the point at the center of the Solar disc) was located at 29 degrees, 50 minutes Gemini, then one might say that he was born on the cusp of Gemini and Cancer. Much of the Solar disc was actually in Cancer even though the center was in Gemini. I study the zodiac a little I'm not deep into it but when i do study it i find it can be very interesting and i learn alot about myself,  but i'm not sure i agree with the new zodiac sign yet maybe in time i will because i have never felt like i have had full traits of either sign now they want to call me a Capricorn instead of an Aquarius not sure i agree just yet. I wont get into depth with the zodiac or i will probably have a 10 page blog lol. So i just wanted to share this read up that i found online with all of you about the zodiac change. Hope you all have a wonderful day

Zodiac Signs Change

 Zodiac Signs Change has become a matter of debate.The theory stated for the new Zodiac signs to arise is that the moon’s gravitational pull has made the Earth “wobble” around its axis in a process called precession resulting about a one-month bump in the stars’ alignment.
Mark Mazurkiewicz the Planetarium’s Director said that the earth moves every 25,000 years and it’s a very very slow wobble, but enough to shift the sky.
“As far as belief that’s really up to the individual. I guess the only person it really affects who have tattoos of their constellation,” said Mazurkiewicz.
A funny tweet came out on twitter as “Nuclear bomb Tests shifted the Earth,Earth shifted Zodiac Signs, and Zodiac Signs shifted Personality”
As per the reports of Gallup poll,a quarter of Americans believe the moon and the stars can affect a person’s life.Some Astrology experts are of the view that the shift in zodiac signs does not apply to most Westerners. They follow the tropical zodiac, which is fixed to the seasons.
The bottom line is this: This “drift” in the sun’s apparent position relative to the background stars and constellations has been known and understood by Astronomers and Astrologers since the Greek astronomer Hipparchus figured it out in 134 BC.

New Zodiac signs 2011 are:
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
Astrologers who use the dates and positions dictated by Near Eastern astronomers hundreds of years before the Christian Era are well aware of it, and they don’t care. They said they’re not going to change the dates they use, and they’re not going to add a “13th sign” – Ophiuchus – to the Zodiac.

Hi Small Town Girl
Thanks for following Gods Litttle People - always happy to meet other people who loves animals :-)
I find astrology very interesting and I'm sure if people read a serious book about its influences they'd be pretty astonished.
Love love love Norah on the piano... she's somewhere on my blog too. She's beyond adorable.
