I’m Still a Leo!!!

Astrological signs

I’m not really a follower of the zodiac.  But I am aware of my star sign and have felt compatible with the description of Leo.  I may not memorize the exact dates where a specific zodiac sign falls into, but I can draw the 12 symbols in the order of the zodiac just fine.

I even remember at one point in my young school days (during the boom of Mighty Morphin’ Power Rangers), I, together with some of my friends, would pretend to be Zodiac Rangers (me being the leader of course since I was a Leo).  At some point in my young life I was into astrology but it eventually mellowed down over the years.

So why the sudden interest?

I”ve heard it in passing over the news that there is a new zodiac calendar and a new zodiac sign has been added.  A 13th zodiac – Ophiuchus, the snake bearer.  Never cared about it much but it was worth checking out.

The Zodiac Calendar which I’m familiar about is this:

Aries: March 21 – April 19
Taurus: April 20 – May 21
Gemini: May 22 – June 22
Cancer: June 23 – July 22
Leo: July 23 – August 22
Virgo: August 23 – September 23
Libra: September 24 – October 23
Scorpio: October 24 – November 22
Sagittarius: November 23 – December 21
Capricorn: December 22 – January 20
Aquarius: January 21 – February 19
Pisces: February 20 – March 20

One new school of thought has this as a new assignment of zodiac:

Capricorn: January 20-February 16
Aquarius: February 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-August 10
Leo: August 10-September 16
Virgo: September 16-October 30
Libra: October 30-November 23
Scorpio: November 23-December 17
Sagittarius: December 17-January 20

And another school of thought, has added the 13th zodiac, thus coming up with this:
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

When I checked wikipedia.org, they had this chart for Sidereal astrology:

Pisces.svg Pisces February 20 – March 20 March 15 – April 14 March 12 – April 16

Quite confusing, I bet.  Most especially for those who are in constant guidance of their daily horoscopes.  I noticed a couple of my friends have been “bumped” off their originally known zodiac signs and they’re not happy about it (Yes Rai, I’m talking about you!).

But seriously, if you’re not into your daily horoscope, then it wouldn’t affect you much.  For me, I’m still glad I’m LEO. <growl>

How about you guys?  Has your zodiac sign changed?

  1. I’m one of those unfortunate people who’s on the cusp of the zodiac between pisces and aquaris. I’ve always just read both in the paper, and decide which one I like better!

  2. Unfortunately, that um, unpronounceable sign has bumped me into another sign that I would rather pretend doesn’t exist; sniff, sniff, sniff… 😦
    Off with Ophi’s head and back to the standard twelve. 🙂
    By the way… good to see you are back. Are you on the postaweek then?
    I’m on my vampire schedule today… even if I don’t show up as the posts arrive in my box, I will make the effort to catch up. Don’t count me out yet 🙂
    Have a great weekend!
    Eliz

  3. Yeah! I agree with you. Down with the snake bearer! 🙂

    Yep! I’m trying to stick to postaweek, at the very least. I hope you’re still okay in having me as a buddy!

  4. Always a buddy dude! I like your spirit… Just don’t forget to stop by and say hello when you check in 🙂
    Eliz

  5. I’m a Pisces, no matter which system you use.

    My mother and husband, though, get bumped from Leo to cancer in both of those “new” ones… however, they both act too much like Leos to be anything else. (Yes, that’s a good thing!)

    My son is on the cusp of Capricorn or Sagittarius… not sure which he truly is, because he’s too young yet.

Would you propose starting with a free platform like WordPress or go for a paid option? There are so many choices out there that I’m totally overwhelmed .. Any suggestions? Kudos!
