Do you really know your zodiac sign? May be..or may be not !

I always believed my zodiac sign was Aries, only until I recently came across a post about the 13th zodiac sign. So all this time I had been living a lie. There is an 86% chance that you were actually born under a different constellation, suggests BBC.

An astronomical phenomenon called precession, or the ‘wobbling effect’ of the Earth caused by the Moon and the Sun, means that the stars above us have drifted out by about a month in the 2,000 years since the creation of the zodiac.

This means that if you thought you were a Taurus, it’s likely that you’re actually an Aries. How??

There’s also a thirteenth star sign – Ophiuchus, or the serpent bearer. Ophiuchus is a fairly large and rambling constellation, but it is one of the least well-known. Although Ophiuchus does touch the elliptic – the path that the sun appears to take through the sky – astrologers for centuries ignored it as part of the Zodiac.maxresdefault

So, what’s your real zodiac sign then? Check out your real sign below…

19 December – 20 January: Sagittarius

21 January – 16 February: Capricorn

17 February – 12 March: Aquarius

13 March – 18 April: Pisces

19 April – 14 May: Aries

15 May – 21 June: Taurus

22 June – 20 July: Gemini

21 July – 10 August: Cancer

11 August – 16 September: Leo

17 September – 31 October: Virgo

1 November – 23 November: Libra

24 November – 29 November: Scorpio

So if you’re born between 30 November and 18 December – congratulations! You’ve won a new star sign on the astronomical zodiac (Ophiuchus).

Although, the 13th zodiac sign is quite controversial. According to some expert astrologers, Ophiuchus is not a sign, it’s a constellation. Also according to them astrology is based on the four seasons, not on constellations — and the seasons don’t change.


“Astrology is just a lens to view our human nature. Different zodiacs and different astrology systems are just different lenses that show us a different view of who we are. You are who you are, regardless of which lens you look at yourself through.”

P.S. I read this somewhere, and it’s so true !
