The New Star Sign In The Zodiac That Could Change It All

  • Parents Only

If the words planetary return, Mercury retrograde and 11th house mean anything to you, then you might need to rethink everything you have ever believed about yourself.

The other-worldly wizards at NASA claim that a new - or actually ignored - constellation could mean there are actually 13 signs in the Zodiac, not the 12 that have been ruling our universe since the beginning of time.

The NASA astronomy experts noticed the shift in 2016 when it identified a change in constellations since the Babylonians first identified the Zodiac system 3,000 years ago. 

This has led to the inclusion of the constellation Ophiuchus. Apparently, the Babylonians knew about it all along but left it out in favour of a neat, even dozen that aligned with the 12 months of the year. However, the addition of this one little astrological arrangement could impact the entire zodiac chart, giving anyone born between November 29 to December 17 the new star sign of Ophiuchus, and having a domino effect on everyone else.

Here’s the new zodiac that’s turned the astrological world upside down:

Despite the calamity and controversy that the NASA revelation created, they can't actually change the horoscope as we have come to know it. In fact, they are quick to downplay the cosmic forecasts, claiming astrology is not that same as astronomy and has not been proven to predict the future or describe people based on their birthdays.

The good news is modern astrology has always known about the 13th constellation yet continued to follow the symbolic 12-star system, so Ophiuchus or any new constellations won’t change the ancient oracle that currently exists.

For those of us that are believers, and love a bit of mystery and magic, we know the truth is written in the stars!
