    Astrologers strike back: New zodiac sign Ophiuchus is an old hoax

    By IB Times Staff Reporter | January 15, 2011 4:29 AM EST

    Astronomer Parke Kunkle's debunking of astrology and the viral wave of theories and anti-theories about the 13th zodiac sign Ophiuchus confounded the followers of astrology the world over, but also dealt a lethal blow to astrologers who withdrew to their shell groping for answers.

    The media reports on the 13th zodiac sign, Ophiuchus, and the change in astronomy, horoscope and zodiac calender sent thousands into an astrological identity crisis.

    But now astrologers are striking back.

    "The zodiac isn't wrong. Your sign isn't changing. Ignore the misinformation", thundered astrologer Rob Brezny.

    “Every year or so, another astronomer erupts into the mainstream media with a portentous announcement about how, due to the precession of the equinoxes, the astrological signs are no longer aligned with the actual
    constellations," he wrote in his website.

    Kunkle, who is a board member of the Minnesota Planetarium Society, said in an interview that the Earth's position has changed vis-a-vis the Sun in the last 3,000 years when astrological signs were first allocated and there is a new sign called Ophiuchus which dictates the course of many events.

    "Because of this change of tilt, the Earth is really over here in effect and Sun is in a different constellation than it was 3,000 years ago."

    So do we stay the same as our old sign or take on new traits?
    We stary the same as our old chart,
    I had this talk with an astrologer yesterday.

    The shift in the axis has been in effect for hundreds of years,
    In order for us to change our sign it would have to shift again.

    I am definitly Virgo all the way.
    Women are Angels.
    And when someone breaks our wings,
    we simply continue to fly... on a broomstick.

    We're flexible like that.

    Well since we're changing dates I'm changing my birthday to Feb.29th so now I will only get one year older every four years.
    It's almost been a year since we did our last show.Jay Bush my partner has been auditioning for the show Shark Tank and so this has put the show on hold. If he gets on Shark Tank, we will be terribly delayed. Good luck Jay. Either way we will one day continue the show and have the coolest global independent radio station out there. This is just a small video we did with one of our artists.Waiting for One and their tune 35 years. Check it out.

    We hope to be doing a radio show with all our artists real soon. Hope you can join in the fun. Please bare with us while we improve the show especially the sound.

    I have always been a proponent of astrology - having been raised in the same home by the same parents at the same time as two VERY different siblings. Have to believe there are some other factors at play there.

    Soooooo, doesn't it all have to do with day each of us were actually born? Why would recent "shifts" in our universe change the past?

    Jeez, this stuff makes my head hurt!

    I stay the same, a sagittarius, but am no longer a sagicorn. I'm right on the cusp to the hour. lol

    I grew up thinking I was a scorpio (my monster and the adoption thing) Nov.21st and I always seemed to fit That. weird.

Growing up it was always said, in my family, that my Grandmother and brother (being Taurus's were stubborn, and they are). I was known as being the typical Lbra, scales of justice, sense of right vs wrong, need for balance, etc...Plus, the Libra's star stone is the sapphire, can't get much better than that, IMO. Some characteristics of Aries are admirable, but I don't think it fits my personality at all. I don't really understand this change, but will continue my Libra status regardless.
    Who is going to pay for everybody (almost) having to change their birthstone jewlery? Huh? Just who's gonna be doing that? That new owhoeverheis sign guy?
    What is this new guys birth stone anyways?

    Ophiuchus is horrible enough! I prefer being a Sagittarius!
    Please help locate Mark Dribin http://www.websleuths.com/forums/sho...ht=Mark+Dribin and Ilene Misheloff http://www.websleuths.com/forums/sho...lene+Misheloff and bring them home.

    I find I dislike the new name. I'm just plain used to the 12. And being a Sagicorn! only Cancer bothers me and one of my brothers is one. Now he'd be a gemini
