There’s no 13th Zodiac sign, and your Zodiac sign has not changed!

There is a rumor falsely spread to the Minnesota Planetarium Society says that there is a 13th Zodiac sign, “Ophiuchus” that is staying between Scorpio and Sagittarius that would result in changing everyone’s Zodiac signs more by a month. 

What actually happened is that the Minneapolis Star Tribune a interviewed member of the society’s board, who merely pointed out that our Zodiac system is technically wrong. The Zodiac symbols are all named after constellations that can be seen from earth. However, over thousands of years, the Earth has shifted on its axis. This means that the year represented by a particular Zodiac sign is no longer the best time to see the corresponding constellation. Thus “”When [astrologers] say that the sun is in Pisces, it’s really not in Pisces,”” 

This has actually been the case for a long time, but there’s been no push to correct the Zodiac calendar to match up with astronomical reality. This is good news for me, since I never thought of myself as a Libra anyway
