What Do the New Zodiac Sign Dates Mean for Your Health and Diet?

By Ole & Shaina Olmanson |

With news of the new zodiac sign dates coming out today, a lot of people are learning that when they thought their astrological sign was one thing all their life, it’s really something else. For me, I moved from Gemini to a Taurus under the new system that includes the missing Ophiuchus, from creative to stubborn.

But did you know that there is also diet advice based on your astrological sign? People have long touted diet claims on how some foods may affect people differently based on the sign they were born under. Like whether you should avoid grains or eat eggs, what fruits are best for you versus others and even what to eat when you’re feeling stressed all based on if you’re a Virgo or a Capricorn, a Sag or a Libra. That really does explain why I crave berries so frequently though. Want diet advice based on your sign?

Anne Collins has a great resource on how to eat to lose weight based on your astrological sign, but now with the new zodiac signs, should we be looking at the old or the new? Interestingly, for me, my personality seems to lean to my new Taurus sign, but my food habits are definitely more on the Gemini side. Maybe I’ll have to take to following both?

The New Zodiac Sign 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

Check out this great recipe chart with suggestions for each sign. Now I can’t decide if I should be eating leek soup or squash soup tonight, and do I love thyme or anise flavorings? I’m so confused. Maybe I’ll just continue on stuffing my face with berries and nuts both. I mean, who can say no to mini cheesecakes or raspberry bread pudding? And I could never do away with rosemary roasted nuts.

What is your new zodiac sign? Have you ever looked into culinary astrology or foodology and food cravings based on when you were born? Do you buy into it?

    The new signs only apply to people who haven’t been born yet. Everything revolves around the alignment at birth. :)

    It’s my understanding (after listening to WCCO this morning) that your astrological sign does not change. The change only refers to babies being born here on out.

    It is my understanding when you are born your sign is based on the alignment at the time of your birth. So the changing of dates to signs are irrelevant to people born before the change in the earth. The new signs would apply to the ones born now and into the future.

    It’s my understanding that basing any decision in your life decisions on astrology is a complete and utter wast of time. Might as well consult with the garden gnomes or magical fairies. I guess you have to get page views somehow.

    Your zodiac sign has not changed ENTIRELY! But it is in the process of shifting. You will always remain your original zodiac sign, except you will only be about 50% of it. To say we will not be effected by this at all is false, of course we will be… by 2012 our sun will be in an entirely different constellation… the question should be how much will be be effected by it? The best way I can describe it is that it will e like being two zodiac signs at once. New abilities and characteristics will start to gradually emerge, yet qualities of your old zodiac sign will always remain and always be present. So relax, it’s a slow process,m it will take a few years for you to even START to notice any difference.

    I find it hard to believe that anyone really believes in Astrology. Yet another “sign” that our education system is broken. It is such a ridiculous idea, yet people seem to believe it !
