New Zodiac Sign Dates: Are You Upset With Your New Sign?


My whole life I’ve been a Virgo. Not the most glamorous sign, I’ll admit, with our obsessively organized, slightly uptight, nerd-ish qualities. Yet I’ve come to accept that this is who I am; I’ve come to love my Virgo-ness. And now with these new zodiac sign dates, I find out that I’m actually a LEO. Granted, Leo is one of the most fun signs, so I’m not complaining, but it’s kind of rocking my world.

But even more than that, my son’s sign is different. When I was pregnant, my son’s due date (Feb. 6) fell dangerously close to the Aquarius/Pisces cut-off, since a mere two-week difference (and that’s not unlikely with an original due date) could push my son’s personality over to Pisces. Now, I don’t have anything against Pisces people, I just wanted a thoughtful, intellectual, open-minded Aquarius child. But now? Now he’s a CAPRICORN.
