Yesterday I was a Pisces, and today – according to the new Zodiac changes – I’m an Aquarius. What? My whole life I identified with those two fish swimming in different directions, and I liked all the positive attributes of the sign: artistic (guess I’m in the right career); never egotistical (I’ll take it); and are super faithful to their friends and family ( I hope!). I read about being an Aquarius and some of the points I really like: unprejudiced and tolerant of other points of view (I try to be); and nearly always intelligent (oh yeah!). But then in the faults it lists wayward egotism. Hey, I thought I was never egotistical!
Well, it turns out that my sign really hasn’t changed.
As Westerners, we adhere to the tropical Zodiac which is fixed to seasons. So if you considered yourself a Cancer under the tropical zodiac last week, you’re still a Cancer under the same zodiac this week.
The sidereal zodiac – which is fixed to constellations and is followed more in the East, is where all these changes are coming from. CNN has a good blog about it here. My only question is, for all our future little ones, do we continue to use the tropical zodiac, or now use the sidereal zodiac? If anyone finds out, please comment, thanks!
