There are new astrological signs for 2011! For some of us it won’t change but it will for others. So you’d better learn what the new astrological sings are so when you meet someone in a bar and go up to them as ask ‘What’s your sign?’ you won’t be dumb-struck when they reply ‘Ophiuchus’. What the heck is Ophiuchus?
Horoscopes are really all messed up now because whoever decides these things has decided to add a 13th sign to the horoscope. This will, no doubt, add an unnecessary amount of confusion for meat-market pick-up lines (if anyone actually uses those lines any more).
The new astrological sign change means that Sagittarius (MY SIGN) has changed, but for me personally, I’m still a Sagittarius. The birth dates that have people falling under certain signs have changed. You might have been a Virgo your entire life and now might find yourself a Leo!
It used to be that the zodiac sign of Sagittarius ran from November 22 until December 22. But now, the Zodiac signs of 2011 have Sagittarius running from December 17 to January 20. Now there is a 13th sign (is having 13 signs a good sign?). Now there Is Ophiuchus that runs from November 29 until December 17th.
Here are the new Zodiac Signs and dates for 2011.

The twelve signs of the Zodiac were created almost 3,000 years ago when astrology was a new ‘science’. The astrological signs had to do with the Earth’s position in relation to the sun. According to astronomers, the Earth has wobbled on its axis changing its relation to the Sun and therefore the signs of the Zodiac has changed. Okay. Whatever.
I’m still not at all sure what the personality characteristics are of people born under Ophiuchus. When I find out, I’ll let you know. Meanwhile there is a general state of confusion as people who were once Cancer are now Gemini and people are really confused as to what their personalities are supposed to be like and wondering if their relationships are doomed because of the changes.
Have the new astrological signs for 2011 changed for you? How has adding the 13th sign of Ophiuchus changed things in your life? For that matter, how do you pronounce Ophiuchus? Do guys still come up to women in bars and say ‘Hi, David, Virgo, what are you drinking?’. Just wondering.
