Hey baby, What’s Your Sign? Who knows?

What’s the deal?   I don’t take a huge amount of stock in the signs and the stars….but apparently the world is way out of whack.  Changes in the earths alignment have caused the zodiac signs to change and they have added a 13th sign to the mix?  Ophiuchus.  Yah, I can’t say that one.  Our old system set up by the Babylon’s about 3000 years ago, she is good no more.  So apparently the last 39 years I spent as a Gemini.  Over.  I am now a Taurus.  Can they do this?

Look, here are the “new” signs.

Capricorn: Jan. 20 – Feb. 16
Aquarius: Feb. 16 – March 11
Pisces: March 11- April 18
Aries: April 18- May 13
Taurus: May 13- June 21
Gemini: June 21- July 20
Cancer: July 20- Aug. 10
Leo: Aug. 10- Sept. 16
Virgo: Sept. 16- Oct. 30
Libra: Oct. 30- Nov. 23
Scorpio: Nov. 23- Nov. 29
Ophiuchus: Nov. 29- Dec. 17
Sagittarius: Dec. 17- Jan. 20

Now that I am saying goodbye to being a Gemini does this mean I am no longer:

  • Adaptable and versatile-Wait a sec, never was.
  • Communicative and witty- Oh oh.  This could be trouble for the blog.
  • Intellectual and eloquent- I can deal.
  • Youthful and lively- Well, I am turning 40 this year.
  • Nervous and tense- I’d be happy to let this go.
  • Superficial and inconsistent-Still not leaving the house without lip gloss. I vow this will remain consistent.
  • Selfish-That is just mean. I was never selfish.
  • Good at communication-Wine helps me communicate and you can’t take that away from me!
  • Flexible-Again…almost 40, flexible was on it’s way out anyway.

So the Zodiac Gods have thrown me a curve ball and I am now a Taurus and represented by a Bull?  Gee, that is so not sexy.  Not a fab start to 2011.  My new personality traits:

  • Compassionate-Yep, bleeding heart all the way.
  • Stubborn-I would agree. So would my Hubby and kids.
  • Dependable-Absolutely.
  • Sensitive-Yes, too sensitive
  • Loyal and reliable-Like a Labrador retriever baby.
  • Aggressive-No, this one is wrong, unless it is a bowl of ice cream or someone is picking on my kids.  Then I will attack. Wait, did that sound aggressive?
  • Strong – Physically as well as emotionally-When I have to be..I think all women are.
  • Dislikes change-True!
  • Warm hearted and loving-Check.
  • Persistent and determined-Um yes, this one made Hubby chuckle.  I might have a problem with persistent.  I prefer “determined”.
  • Placid and security loving-Oh yes please!
  • Jealous and possessive-Is there something wrong with this?
  • Resentful and inflexible-Only if you do me wrong.

Shock.  Maybe I am a Taurus after all!  The universe shook things up but good.  I think the next 40 or 50 years might be very interesting!  Do you give the zodiac signs any thought?  I want to know!  Did your sign change?   Do you care? 


50-badge-2010Yes you still can vote for me as one of Babbles Top Bloggers.  Find me alphabetically here #201 Page 5. I would love it if you find me worthy if a thumbs up!


  1. OMG, I’m an ex-Gemini, now Taurus too, and I seem to fit the Taurus mould SO much better! And here I was, mourning the loss of my Gemini-ness!

  2. My sign did NOT change, but my hubby’s did, from Gemini to Taurus as well and my daughters changed from Libra to Virgo… What a year this is going to be.. everyones signs are changing, Regis is retireing, Starbucks is getting a 30oz!!! WHOA!!! Slow down lol…

  3. LOL I thought this as well when I heard the story. Luckily the “western” astrology that most of us go by isn’t impacted by the “new” sign. I’m still a cancer just like I always was (and boy oh boy am I a cancer…..)

  4. Count me amongst the Gemenis-turned-Tauruses. The only thing that REALLY irks me about this is that I gave birth to The Twins on my own 30th birthday…yes…under the sign of the twins. I thought that was the shizzle. Now we’re just a pack of bulls. Humph.

  5. I have to admit I don’t take a lot of interest in Zodiac signs, but according to these new rules I’d be Opiuchus, – so I’d be interested to see what it said!

  6. Interesting…. supposedly mine changed as well. I think I need to find and do a comparison as well – maybe it will fit me better too!

  7. I am/ was? a Cancer. I haven’t done the research but I’m not sure how exciting being a Cancer was, so i might switch to Leo for the heck of it….

  8. I know there is so much talk about all the signs changing and all, but I was born an aries and I am staying that way lol! It just seems so unreal to tell ppl that I am now a Pisces ah! lol


  9. No. I refuse to get a new sign. I will still be a Taurus. Plus, I think that these only apply from here on out. If you are already alive, you get to keep your sign.

  10. amazing how your life can change and you never knew it…ha. still a leo here…

  11. I was a Pisces…and still am! All the rest of my family has changed, though – funny!

    My mother has used my father’s astrological sign to “explain” his short-comings for years…and now she’s got nada. This cracks me up the most! All these years she’s been reading and underlining and quoting “Love Signs”!!! lol

  12. I was the lucky one mine did not change.. I think my husband did. Why did they not do it right to begin with.. I am not sure.. But I think you should stay at what you want.. Have a great day..

  13. I saw that in the news the other day, and honestly, I just don’t care! We’re living in a strange world these days.

  14. Apparently, under the new rules, I am now a Gemini instead of a Cancer. I have decided that since the signs can arbitrarily change then I shall remain a Cancer – unless the horoscope for Gemini that day; then I’ll be a Gemini for the day.

  15. Me too! I am no longer a gemini but now a Taurus. Hmmm I’m not sure how I feel about that. I’m gonna have to think about this.

  16. If I believe the story in the MN news than yep zodiac sign change…but Aries to Pisces?? C’mon!!! But if I buy the story on CNN telling me that western zodiacs follow the seasons and not really the universe then I am still an Aries. I don’t know why peeps want me to be so confuzzled. 🙂

    So, I am going to stay Aries just because I am that stubborn lol

  17. My sign changed but I don’t care. Good luck with the Babble List.

  18. I think it is all crap. I am/was a scorpio. And believe me….I am a scorpio. I feel bad for all those poor souls that tattood their signs on themselves. And what about these beautiful birthstone necklaces my husband gave me for my children. All because one know-it-all scientist?

  19. Yes I used to be a Scorpio and am not a Virgo! But there is actually an article on CNN stating why the signs didn’t change, something about going by the western signs and philosophies in the first place. I found it, here is the link

  20. It didn’t really change. That just affects those who follow the sidereel zodiac(an eastern thing), not ours here.

    I’m so a Cancer(sign- and yes, I have to clarify)

  21. Hey, according to your chart, I’m not a pisces anymore! Now I’m an aquarius. I think I’ll stick with Pisces, I don’t want to have to go out and buy new zodiac charms Lol!

  22. I’ve read that astronomers, the scientist-guys and -gals, are behind the change in signs due to the earth’s alignment, etc.
    But astrologers, who deal with horoscopes, etc., say our birth signs are unaffected by this change.
    Which totally makes me happy because I’m SO much more Scorpio than Libra, and I’m much too stubborn and crotchety to change now! 🙂

  23. with this, i’ve made a switch, though keeping me on the cusp of what i was before. i’ve never identified with being a pisces, so i don’t care either way.

  24. I’ve been bumped to Libra status, but I still think I am more of a Scorpio! 😉

  25. i almost fainted when i heard this!!!!!

  26. S’all hogwash, no worries – nothing has changed! You can stay a sweet geminin, we love you this way! 😉

  27. When I heard this last week, I just thought, “What a load of crap!” According to the “new” chart, I change from a Taurus to an Aries. Not gonna happen. I’m a Taurus through and through!

  28. I refuse to accept it!

  29. Once a Pisces, always a Pisces. The new Zodiac can kiss my grits!

  30. What??? Now I’m a Gemini? Don’t they have anythng better to do? I was just fine being a cancer. Sigh…So I wonder if my personality changed? How people are now going to have identity crisis? this is hilarious!

  31. I was a Leo through and through (and loved being a Leo). And now I’m apparently a Cancer. It doesn’t really bother me that much except I actually do have a tattoo of the Leo sign on my body. When I posted that tweet it wasn’t just a joke!

    I have heard that this only really takes effect for those born in 2009 onward though.

    And really, it’s all just being made up as we go along now, isn’t it?! 🙂

  32. I am now a ex-pisces with two fish tattooed on my body. Dang, well, pisces still fits me better and I’ve never been huge on stuff like this.

  33. Great post! I love being a suborn Virgo!

    I wanted to thank you! I have something special for you on my blog! http://bit.ly/hpcDVd

  34. I have my fingers in my ears and I’m saying nananananananaa, I can’t hear you.

    I’m not budging signs. That’s it.

  35. I’m following you from Facebook! Will you follow me?

  36. If I got switched down to a Virgo, does that make me a born-again Virgin?

  37. I heard about this too- I was(?) a Cancer and I am now a Gemini. I agree- can they do this? Odd.

  38. I like being a pisces…and now I am not…I think I will continue to stay the same…I don’t like change! 🙂

  39. pleaatthhh… once and aquarius always an aquarius you can’t change my quirky little ways!!!

  40. i am sagittarius sista. Riding a horse with a man body. look strong

  41. I am a Gemini now!! Who knew!! This is crazy.

  42. I heard this isn’t the case really. Regardless, I am a Gemini through and through!

  43. Liked you on Babble 🙂

  44. Nope Im still a bossy and determined Leo!!

  45. Mine sure did. I am now an Aquarius. Need to look it up. Now I’m curious.

    Do you people have a facebook fan page? I looked for one on twitter but could not discover one, I would really like to become a fan!

  47. I think mine was the only one in the family’s that didnt!

  48. No way! I read somewhere that extra zodiac sign thingie is bs – thank god – there is no way in hell I’m a Virgo!

  49. I refuse to change my sign. I’m staying a Libra. Take that world!

  50. Did they really change the signs. I sorta heard a little bit about this. If so I’m not a Taurus anymore I’m a Aries. Don’t know anything about Aries. Hummmm, I suppose I should read a bit about it.
    Have a blessed weekend!
