Are You Now a Ophiuchus?

Are you feeling lost with the recent news of the entire Zodiac being wrong?  What’s up with that.  I liked being a Libra.  It fit me just fine.  And, now, all of a sudden, I’m a Virgo?  Nothing against Virgos, it’s just that I liked my Libra sign.

And it kind of stinks if you have jewelry with your birthstone.  Or, worse yet, a tattoo of your Zodiac Sign.  Oh boy, that wouldn’t be good.

Plus, what’s up with a Ophiuchus.  I can’t even pronounce it.  Just sounds kinda weird to me.

Did your sign change?  Check out this “new” list.  I heard Ophiuchus make great couponers 🙂

    What the heck? I’m no longer a Scorpio – I’m now a Libra. LOL! Ridiculous.

    • Laurie M.

      And the “new” Scorpio only encompasses 6 days? Rubbish! lol I’m still a Scorpio and always will be 😉

  • David

    I was on a website that people linked that said that this was only valid for people born 2009 or later (I guess that’s when the Earth’s time period cycles were extended due to a change in the orbit). I can’t find the link but it looked pretty legitimate so I would check that out.

  • Candice

    This makes absolutely no sense!! How can they just change it like that!!!!!!!!!!!

  • I also read that it only applies to people born after 2009. Either way, SORRY astrologists, I’m a Libra and always will be. Besides, I can’t even pronounce the new sign!

    • Cindy

      Me too Lauren. I love my Libra sign 🙂

  • Heather

    mine went from scorpio to virgo…but believe me…im a true scorpio…so i dont care what changes…i was born a scorpio and will continue to be one…lol

  • Rich

    Calm down people, calm down, this is really a case of crazy internet fad taking over….

    The ORIGINAL source here:

    And now the explanation as to why it’s not true for us:


    • Cindy

      We are calm. It’s just a funny post. Something to lighten up the coupon calculating we all do everyday. Gives you something else to talk and laugh about.

      I heard Ophiuchus make great couponers LOL 🙂

  • Rich

    Also Wikipedia explains the difference very technically and answers your question:
    “Ophiuchus was formerly referred to as Serpentarius, the former originating in Greek and the latter in Latin, both meaning “serpent-holder”

  • mandee

    look at that I guess I’m a Ophiuchus how ever the heck you would say that!! lol Hey now that I’m a new sign will I have better luck maybe I should go play the lotto hummmmm??????????

  • Jason

    It’s all a lie!!!

  • Lisa

    I was born a Leo but I’ve always been more of a Cancer, so it fits for me. But my hubby on the other hand is an Aries, now Pisces, and that doesn’t make any sense! 🙂

  • Kayla

    Your sign is based off where the stars were aligned when you were born. What you were when you were born will not change. The new zodiac applies to babies born November 29th 2009 and after.

  • Jennifer

    I like being a libra – it fit me. This is ridiculous – why, after all this time, change it? Dumb.

  • audra wilder

    LMAO! My 13 month old is a Ophiuchus: Nov. 29- Dec. 17! too funny I love it – thanks for the laugh Cindy!

  • kevin

    My b-day is June 20, Gemini now would be Taurus. I definitely feel like a Gemini, the twins. Explains multiple personalities. Not crazy kind, just being quiet in groups but not having a problem going to customer service to argue for my catalina’s! LOL.

  • Rachel

    It’s only for people BORN AFTER 2009! So your still your same sign 🙂

    • Tera

      No it’s not only for people born after 2009. These changes happened thousands of years ago. Scientist have known for over a hundred years but were too lazy to mess up the nice and neat rounded number 12.


    This article explains that there are two different zodiacs. One that goes by the seasons, which us westerners use, and another that goes by astrology. So depending on which you use you sign might not have changed.

  • Mckenzie

    I don’t see how this is possible i was born december 17th, how am i both Ophiuchus and Sagittarius?

  • Tera

    I was born Dec. 9th. I guess I was never really a Sagittarius. I’m an Ophiucus (off-ee-YOO-cuss). Okay. I guess I’m not longer a fire sign either. Hmm…. I guess it’s better then finding out I’m a Virgo. Lol.
