Zodiac fans in a frenzy over sudden change in the stars

What’s your zodiac sign? Those of us who look up our daily horoscopes discovered a few weeks ago that there’s new Zodiac signs for many in 2011.

“Now things have moved and the sun is in a different constellation. We’re about a whole constellation off,” Professor Parke Kunkle, of the Minnesota Planetarium Society, said.

Scientist’s are claiming that since the new year has begun, the Zodiac sign has a date reassignment due to the realignment of the stars.

This new astronomic discovery has resulted in our new Zodiac signs, along with the new addition Ophiuchus, which has always been in the star consolation but was never represented in the Zodiac signs.

The 12 “original” signs were assigned almost 3,000 years ago. Most of us have never heard of Ophiuchus.

That’s the 13th constellation causing all of the trouble.  Apparently Ophiuchus is a large constellation located around the celestial equator. Its name is Greek for ‘serpent bearer’ and  is commonly represented as a man grasping the snake that is represented by the constellation serpents.

Horoscopes have been a stimulating part of culture and history for centuries. The Zodiac news has caused panic amongst believers, resulting in tattoo removal and identity problems. This dilemma   has been one of the top Google searches in the past week.

The zodiac upset is something most will forget about in a few weeks and will probably have no great affect on anyone’s life. The good news throughout this entire fiasco is that the signs are only changing for people who are born after 2009.
