Facebook users were shocked to learn that the zodiac has been changing, and as some (including myself) incorrectly thought, that meant many people were going to have new horoscope signs.
As CNN points out:
If they adhered to the tropical zodiac – which, if they’re a Westerner, they probably did – absolutely nothing has changed for them…. That’s because the tropical zodiac – which is fixed to seasons, and which Western astrology adheres to – differs from the sidereal zodiac – which is fixed to constellations and is followed more in the East.
The news which began spreading like wildfire yesterday, increased in volume this morning as users continued to go crazy, especially those who thought that believed they now had the wrong horoscope signs tatooed on their bodies.
While the real story behind the zodiac news is slowly spreading through Facebook, there are still hundreds of thousands of users who believe that their symbol has permanently changed. While your sign hasn’t changed unless you suddenly started following another form of zodiac, it isn’t stopping many users from continuing to post about it.
Rest assured, your sign isn’t changing anytime soon.
