Realignment of the Zodiac

First, Pluto is no longer a planet and now they've shifted the Zodiac sign system due to a shift in the Earth's alignment.  They've also added a 13th sign: Ophiuchus.  What is a Ophiuchus you ask?  Its name is Greek for "serpent bearer" and it is represented by a man grasping a snake.  I wonder if I go from Cancer to Gemini or if its based on what your horoscope sign was when you were born.  Here are the new dates:

Capricorn: Jan. 20 - Feb. 16
Aquarius: Feb. 16 - March 11
Pisces: March 11- April 18
Aries: April 18- May 13
Taurus: May 13- June 21
Gemini: June 21- July 20
Cancer: July 20- Aug. 10
Leo: Aug. 10- Sept. 16
Virgo: Sept. 16- Oct. 30
Libra: Oct. 30- Nov. 23
Scorpio: Nov. 23- Nov. 29
Ophiuchus: Nov. 29- Dec. 17
Sagittarius: Dec. 17- Jan. 20

Sorry to tell you, but you are now a Gemini. Apparently, these changes happened thousands of years ago... we're just getting the memo now. However, the meanings shift as well, so I guess those go by date and not by sign. I'm still a virgo though! :o)

I don't like this shift. I'm a Gemini to a T but this says I'm now a Taurus... Do not like.

I wonder if newspapers will follow suit or if the traditionalists will win out.

I have all of the qualities of a typical Cancer. No way am I calling myself Gemini. And there's no way that my boyfriend is now a scorpio, he doesn't have NEAR the sex drive as ACTUAL scorpio's I know.

Update: Well, strike that, you don't get to switch your sign. At least reader StarJack says so: "The stars are markers that drift, but our main points of reference are not directly the stars. They are the equinoxes (both spring and vernal) and the solstices which altogether make the four cardinal points of the zodiac which in turn determine the signs. The stars help us locate those points which define the SIGNS of the Zodiac which remain constant in relation to the equinox point. The CONSTELLATIONS do move about and we take that into consideration when locating planets."
