New Zodiac Signs 2011: Why You Do NOT Have a New Astrological Sign!

We do not have new zodiac sign dates!

There’s been a lot of talk about how there are new zodiac sign dates. Those who thought they were the Cancer sign might be a Gemini. Thought you were a Sagittarius? You might actually be a 13th sign called Ophiuchus.

But, wait! Before you panic and say that the sign you thought you were your whole life, we’ll tell you why your sign actually didn’t change at all and isn’t likely to!

We can all relax.

There are actually TWO zodiacs: the tropical zodiac and the sidereal zodiac.  Westerners use the tropical zodiac. The thirteenth sign is only relevant if you follow the sidereal zodiac, which most of us in the US do not.

So, your sign hasn’t changed at all! And we don’t need to worry about adding the thirteenth zodiac sign to our horoscopes. What a relief!
