Stars Whose Zodiac Sign Changed to Ophiuchus

Stars Whose Zodiac Sign Changed to Ophiuchus-photo
In case you haven't heard, astronomers have now added Ophiuchus to the list of zodiac signs, making for a grand total of thirteen. As a result, the dates for each have shifted to accommodate the November 29–December 17 sign that is thought to have been abandoned by the ancient Babylonians because they wanted twelve instead of thirteen.

But why is this change necessary, exactly? It all has to do with the gradual tilt of the Earth that over time has made our pre-existing zodiac dates inaccurate. "Because of this change of tilt," Park Kunkle, an astronomer said, "the Earth is really over here in effect, and Sun is in a different constellation than it was 3,000 years ago."

So if you were born between November 29 and December 17, congratulations! You are an Ophiuchus just like many of your favorite celebrities.

Nov. 30 - Elisha Cuthbert, Clay Aiken, Ben Stiller

    this is stupid, i grew up being a libra and now i'm supposed to be a virgo?!?!?! HELL NO!! i want to still be a libra, cuz it's suits my personality so well YES !!! i'm a libra too!! and now i'm a virgo?? i love my sign so much and i will never change to virgo. it's absurd that they have changed it up, all the signs are meant to fit each person's personality. for example, libras are calm and hate fights,that exactly me!! (and you, i suppose) and now i'm a virgo!!!! when people ask me, i'll always say i'm a lbra ALWAYS !!
