I'm Aquarius by the old dates, Capricorn by the new ones.

The poll could have either allowed for 13 constellations or "houses", allowed for 2 votes, or included an option for "Other/None of the above".

Fnord, the extra sign you mentioned isnt qualified as a real sign, and is not part of the Zodiac. I dont know the full story about that extra sign, but it doesnt belong to modern astrology.
Therefore, I didn't "miss" anything Fnord.
I did enough research on astrology to know the basics. I dont need an astrology lesson from you.

Actually, it is. If you look up at the summer night sky, you will see the constellation of Ophiuchus right there, between Scorpius to the west and Sagittarius to the east. It straddles the equator with the majority of its area lying in the southern hemisphere, so it's understandable that most astrologers would ignore it.

Besides, how many people outside of Christian Fundamentalism would want to be known as a "Snake Bearer"?


:D

If you were born between Nov. 29 and Dec. 17, your sign is actually one you never saw in the newspaper -- you are an Ophiuchus -- a "Snake Bearer"! The ecliptic observably passes through the constellation of Ophiuchus after Scorpius. Astrologers completely ignore this one observable fact, and none of them can give a reasonable answer why without admitting that astrology has little (if anything) to do with the actual positions of the Earth and Sun relative to the zodiac.


I always thought I was a taurus... so I'm really an aries? :chin:

Apparently so!

But when people ask me what my sign is, I usually say, "Thelev, the Weaver" and leave them scratching their heads.

According to the tarot cards my birth cards are The Emperor and Death. :king: :skull:

I have the same birth cards as King Henry the VIII... and Donald Trump. :?

I just say I'm Capricorn ascendant with Venus in Pisces... that says it all, really.

Which makes me a Leo by Astronomy and a Virgo by Astrology.
