Hey Baby... What's your Sign?

via Time NewsFeed
Or do you even know anymore?

Turns out that everything we knew about our horoscopes was incorrect!

According to Time NewsFeed, some astronomers in Minnesota discovered that the stars were all out of alignment by about a month, due to the moon's gravitational pull on Earth.

So what does that mean?

Well, not much for me, aside from the fact that I'll need a new zodiac charm for my bracelet.

But what about the so-called "personality traits" that were supposed to be associated with each zodiac? 

Cancer (my old sign)

Mothering, emotional and physical nurturance; experiences and imprinting during infancy and childhood; family, ancestors, heritage, relationships to the past; belonging, feeling "at home"; maternal love, caring; feeling supported by the world, that your needs are provided for; insecurities and fears if your needs haven't been fulfilled; possessiveness, "twisted love", inability to nurture others are negative expressions.

Gemini (my new sign)

Talkative, communicative, sociable; loves to interact with others (at least on a superficial level); unemotional, impersonal, ruled by "rationality"; requires great mental stimulation, curious to a fault; playful, the Trickster, the Devil's Advocate; changable, inconstant, attention easily drifts to something new, seeks novelty.

How does someone just CHANGE their personality traits?  And does that mean that my husband and I are suddenly no longer compatible because he's now an Aquarius and I'm now a Gemini? 

Seems to me like all these horoscope readers are going to be doing a lot of back peddling... :)

2010.01.18  ETA:  I just read the other day that this is only for those born in 2009 or later... so I guess I'm still a Cancer!


  1. Interesting! Having just read the traits for Gemini which my DH is/was - they're actually nothing like him. Wonder what he is now and am now Libra and not Scorpio?

  2. Sue I went from being a Cancer to Gemini as well..not that it means least I hadn't gotten my zodiac sign tattoo yet.

  3. Well that is just dumb. Am I acting like those old farmers who complain about daylight savings time if I out and out REFUSE to just change my sign because someone tells me to? Capricorn at birth...Capricorn until I die.


Thank you for your comments - I appreciate the feedback!
