And by ‘a whole lot of people’ i mean all those that believe in horoscopes and that your star sign dictates your personality etc. Well they pretty much lost it last week when an article did the rounds claiming that NASA changed the dates of the Zodiac signs so you may not actually be a Scorpio after all because a shifting of earths axis has resulted in the position of the constellations changing. Basically the Babylonians were wrong blah blah and that astrology isn’t based on science.
There was even talk of NASA creating a new Zodiac sign.
I didn’t help that Cosmopolitan posted an article saying “Don’t freak out, but your star sign has probably changed”.
“NASA have decided to ruin our lives update the astrological signs for the first time in 2,000 years, meaning that a whopping 86% of us now have a different sign.
If you want to get all technical about it, the reason for this radical change is down to the fact that the sky today is extremely different to how it was thousands of years ago, which makes sense.” [Cosmopolitan]
Don’t panic though because it turns out it isn’t exactly true that NASA changed your Zodiac sign.
They bluntly told Gizmodo “NASA studies astronomy not astrology”.
So you can relax and go back to believing your fortune cookie horoscopes.
