we are NOT OUR REAL STAR SIGNS – EXPERTS AND NOVICES PLEASE HELP?
please go to the above link to answer this question.
iam a libran 12th october 1981 according to this i’am a virgo. i recognise a lot of libran traits in me and none if any virgo traits.
so my question is does this prove that it is just wishful thinking or astrology is fake. i pay quiet a bit of importance to star sign compatibility and read my horoscope daily. this just makes me question it validity.
can anyone share light on this subject, or have you any opinions

There is supposed to be a 13th sign of the zodiac called Ophiuchus (http://www.geocities.com/astrologyconstellations/ophiuchus.htm) that might throw out your traits.
As to whether or not it means anything, I think that’s a personal choice.

Don’t even worry about it. Astrology is not based on the earth orbiting the sun. It is a system of observations based on the illusion of “the sun moving around the celestial sphere”. Basing it on the earth’s orbit creates a whole new field of Astrology, in which the 12 sun sign descriptions we have now would have to be shifted. So, yeah, under this system you’d be a Virgo, but what’s in a name? You’d still have all the same traits as what is called Libra in the astrological system we already use.

This is OLD NEWS.
Even without counting Ophiuchus, the zodiac is off about one full sign. Precession of the equinox is the reason. Constellations are of different sizes. Some take up more area than others but astrologers decided to make each 30 more or less even number of days.
The number 12 is favored because it is easy to divide. The four “elements” are alternated evenly. So do the Cardinal, Fixed, and Mutable modes alternate. 13 is a prime number so that would mess a lot of things up. Having one less sign can’t work since 11 is a prime number too.
Pluto was not discovered until 1930. It took a little while to make up attributes and be accepted by astrologers. But adding a sign is big trouble. Only when there is an advantage does astrology change.
