Zodiac Signs Change has become a matter of debate.The theory stated for the new Zodiac signs to arise is that the moon’s gravitational pull has made the Earth “wobble” around its axis in a process called precession resulting about a one-month bump in the stars’ alignment.
Mark Mazurkiewicz the Planetarium’s Director said that the earth moves every 25,000 years and it’s a very very slow wobble, but enough to shift the sky.
“As far as belief that’s really up to the individual. I guess the only person it really affects who have tattoos of their constellation,” said Mazurkiewicz.
A funny tweet came out on twitter as “Nuclear bomb Tests shifted the Earth,Earth shifted Zodiac Signs, and Zodiac Signs shifted Personality”
As per the reports of Gallup poll,a quarter of Americans believe the moon and the stars can affect a person’s life.Some Astrology experts are of the view that the shift in zodiac signs does not apply to most Westerners. They follow the tropical zodiac, which is fixed to the seasons.
The bottom line is this: This “drift” in the sun’s apparent position relative to the background stars and constellations has been known and understood by Astronomers and Astrologers since the Greek astronomer Hipparchus figured it out in 134 BC.
Astrologers who use the dates and positions dictated by Near Eastern astronomers hundreds of years before the Christian Era are well aware of it, and they don’t care. They’re not going to change the dates they use, and they’re not going to add a “13th sign” – Ophiuchus – to the Zodiac.
