Horoscope - What is your sign?

I woke up to the realisation that a scorpio I was is now no longer true. I am now a Libra! We are also used to knowing just the 12 horoscope signs but now, we have a 13th - Ophiucus. Apparently the Babylonians had an Ophiucus column in their daily horoscopes but it got dropped somewhere between their civilisation and ours. The unlucky 13th?

Robert Roy Britt, author for LiveScience, posted Why Your Horoscope for 2011 Is All Wrong:
Your zodiac sign — Aries, Taurus, Gemini, Cancer, Leo, Virgo, Libra, Scorpio, Sagittarius, Capricorn, Aquarius or Pisces — was originally based on the constellation the sun was in the day you were born. Thing is, Earth wobbles, a phenomenon called precession.

Over the 2,500 years or so since the zodiac was established, your sign has moved about a month relative to the sun and stars. You're no longer what you think you are, and so if you're an astrology buff, perhaps poised to make a New Year's resolution based on the stars and a reading of your supposed personality, know that you're actually following observations, predictions and advice aimed at another person entirely.


Here's the full truth about your astrological sign.
