If you thought the dispute about whether Pluto is still a planet or not was frustrating, (don’t worry Pluto, you’re still number nine in my book), wait until you hear about the new zodiac sign.

It was rumored that NASA re-discovered a new zodiac on September 18 known as Ophiuchus that was left out 2,000 years ago by the Babylonians. The Babylonians knew the earth revolved around 13 constellations, but to fit their pretty, 12-month calendar, they simply left out the 13th sign.

This caused some sectors of the zodiac to fall into another sector creating a really confusing, pointless mess; and because the earth’s tilt has changed in the last 2,000 years, the sectors are even more out of order. But don’t worry, NASA didn’t actually change the signs, they just pointed out that poor Ophiuchus had been left out.

If you want to know what category you would fall in with the new tilt and if Ophiuchus had never been tossed to the wind, the chart below shows the new dates of all 13 signs.

Capricorn: Jan 20 – Feb 16

Aquarius: Feb 16 – Mar 18

Pisces: Mar 11 – Apr 18

Aries: Apr 18 – May 13

Taurus: May 13 – Jun 21

Gemini: Jun 21 – Jul 20

Cancer: Jul 20 – Aug 10

Leo: Aug 10 – Sep 16

Virgo: Sep 16 – Oct 30

Libra: Oct 30 – Nov 23

Scorpio: Nov 23 – Nov 29

Ophiuchus: Nov 29 – Dec 17

Sagittarius: Dec 17 – Jan 20

Keep in mind that Astrology has never been proven as an exact science, just like Philosophy isn’t an actual major. The only time I pay any attention to my zodiac is when I read my weekly horoscope on Cosmopolitan’s snapchat story. I may not have a strong opinion about the change in zodiac’s but I’m glad I don’t have to give up my fierce classification as a Scorpio and take up the (no offence) whiney, negative Virgo.
