YIKES. Massive Astro Melt Down with the astronomical information that the signs have changed.
Key word is astronomical information not astrological information! What is the difference? the astronomers measure the exact mathematical location of the planets, stars, and constellations. Astrologers interpret the heavens as they relate to human experience.
In short. Your astrological sign has not changed. It is true that the precession of the equinoxes have created a different alingment between constellations and calendars. If this is making your eyes glaze over and provoking existential.....or astrological dread, please relax.
The interest in this news clicp is fascinating to me and thrilling because it means that people want to look at the big picture and feel comfort in their astrological sign. As we all should. Each person's chart has 10 placements: the position of the Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto. Your character and fate, is composed of all these signs. The so called 13th sign, or new sign Ophiuchus is not an astrology sign in the way astrologers currently look at the zodiac. With systems that consider the lunar calendar, which has 13 months, there may be room for Ophiuchus in a lunar based astrology. That is not the system that I use nor is it used by most Western Astrologers. I do not foresee that we are going to see lots of key chains, T-shirts, and greeting cards featuring Ophichus.
The important question is what does all this mean? Simply put: our consciousness is expanding and our knowledge is accelerating. We must hold to the wisdom in ancient thinking while making room for the new.
Not to worry. We each are still born under the sign that we know and love.
I was on television today, January 14th, briefly stating this very fact. I will post the link on my twitter when it is up on the site.
Till then, Enjoy your Sign.
