Have the dates changed for the horoscopes in your local newspaper?
Despite this ‘zodiac date shift’ being insultingly printed on the front page of one of the local newspapers here, the zodiac dates have NOT changed in the horoscope section of the very same newspaper. I am wondering if this is the same for everywhere else. If so, I can’t help but wonder why people don’t notice this discrepancy before they start going on about how the zodiac dates have changed.
I understand that there is no change, astrologically speaking. I’m just wondering if any newspapers are holding true to their word.

The difference exists because the dates for the tropical zodiac, the one that we’re familiar with, have NOT changed. The “new” sign isn’t new at all and is part of the sidereal zodiac, which isn’t used in the Western world.

I haven’t noticed, but then again, I don’t read the horoscopes in the daily newspaper. I find them a waste of my time. Anyway, the person who writes the horoscopes for the paper isn’t really an astrologer if he/she did that! Would a real astrologer even work for a newspaper company, writing bogus horoscopes?

Why do you think we still adhere to astrology?
It’s easy to say, “Oh, no one actually believes in astrology.” Maybe true, but every newspaper across the country prints horoscopes every day. Somewhere, people are getting paid to be astrologists.
How can this be? In an age of science and reason, why do you think we still cling to such superstitions?

I wouldn’t term them as being superstitious. I think the reason why they are considered hog wash is simply because most of us have not yet reached that level of understanding to acknowledged it.

Astrology is like an old marriage. It’s been mauled a bit and some of the promises have gone out the window. Nevertheless, there is still enough truth and comfort to it that it will still be around for a long time.
