Hey Libra, you may not be a Libran after all!! And Hey Gemini, Taurus…….
I am not in the habit of writing on comprehensive topics such as NASA and Astrology. But I believe this news is such that we cannot ignore and all should take a look at.I am also not a big fan of NASA nor a NASA-phile + believe that NASA may NOT be what it says it is and agree we still wonder what’s really hapening there.
Still, occasional scientific detections-even by NASA- can give us a quick-flash-glimpse of the reality that surrounds us.
Below is one such;
THE ASTROLOGY AND ZODIAC AS WE KNOW COULD BE FALSE SINCE WITH THE TILT OF EARTH’S AXIS, THE PLACEMENT OF ZODIAC SIGNS HAVE CHANGED -CENTURIES BEFORE!
AND NASA IS RIGHTFULLY ASKING A SERIOUS QUESTION. IS THE ZODIAC SIGN YOU BELONG TO SERIOUSLY CORRECT?
All over the world, people check their horoscopes to see what’s in store for them for the day.
For most, it is an entertaining, meaningless diversion, but a few genuinely believe in their predictions based on their astrological signs sign.
But NASA is causing waves in the astrological community for its recent suggestion that the astrological signs – constellations that are at a certain point in the sky for certain point in the year – have changed as the Earth’s axis has shifted over the centuries. The uproar was such that NASA’s tumblr felt compelled to release an explanation for the story, emphasizing that astrology is a pseudoscience.
The root of the uproar was apparently an article in Cosmopolitan magazine that claimed that a NASA article had shaken up the zodiac calendar, and that 86 percent of the star signs people think that they were born under were now incorrect. NASA’s “correction” of the zodiac calendar also included a 13th constellation, Ophiuchus, adding further fuel to the viral wildfire that quickly spread across the internet.
According to the NASA post (meant for children) that began the hubbub, the Earth’s axis has changed in the 3,000 years since the zodiac was first invented. As a result, the constellations over which the sun appears to move over have shifted over time. It also pointed out that the sun also moves over a 13th constellation, which the Babylonians deigned not to include in the zodiac in order to preserve their 12-month calendar.
None of this is new information, points out Phil Plait, of Slate Magazine. He notes that astrologers have been ignoring the 13th constellation for thousands of years, and that sun actually passes through up to 21 constellations, by some counts.
