If I hear/see one more person say "wait so I'm a Virgo now???" I'm going to hurt someone.

Does no one do their research anymore?

The Zodiac signs have not changed. There are two Zodiacs based off two different things. Tropical, Westerners identify with this one and it is based off the seasons. I am Taurus based on the ideas of the Tropical Zodiac.

Sidereal Zodiac, Easterners identify with this one and it is based off the constellations. I am Taurus based on the ideas of the Sidereal Zodiac.

I've always identified with the Tropical Zodiac therefore I am still a Taurus and that will not change. But in the Eastern world I'd be considered an Aries.

Don't go having an identity crisis people! Do your research!

No matter what sign you are...you are what you are in terms of Tropical or Sidereal...

  • Not only that, but you are still the sign you were "born" under, not what it currently is.

  • Yeah, and it really hasn't changed anyway. Nothing has changed. People are just aware of 2 different forms of the Zodiac. People born on May 13th like me, will continue to be Taurus in the future as they are now and have been in the past. LOL. It's just funny how people take things and run with them without looking into it first.

  • The change is false, most astrologers are not following this because of the method used. It just seems like one dumbass with a PHD opened his mouth with out consulting other professionals first.
