On the 14th July 2020 even though astrology, NASA announced the stars have shifted. 

What does that mean?

To cut a long story short, it means it looks like we have been reading the wrong horoscope all this time which is a bit of a ball ache if you do follow and regular browse the predictions of what your day, week, month or life will be according to the month you were born in!

FYI, there is also a new star sign called Ophiuchus which in astronomy is a large constellation along the celestial equator and is represented by a man holding a snake now making an appearance in the zodiac mix making it lucky or unlucky 13 for some!

But is it new - No, of course its not - it was the Babylonians who originally drew up the original positions of the Zodiac signs around 3,000 years ago and although they did spot Ophiuchus at the time, they decided not to add it in due to it not fitting into their 'power of 12' division of the night sky.   By leaving it out we got the 12 signs commonly used in astrology. 

But space isn't constant and star positions drift over time which then change where the constellations appear.  The Earth's axis has altered since the Zodiac signs were coined, but the change is only very small and thus Ophiuchus which lies between Aquila, Serpens, Scorpius, Sagittarius, and Hercules, northwest of the centre of the Milky Way is back. 

Before meltdown takes place on the back of you could have had better luck, won the lottery, experienced a more fantastic and fulfilling love life, may have met the person of your dreams, been top of the career ladder and should be matched with Pisces had you had been browing your correct star sign.  As it appears Ophiuchus has always been one of the constellations and now is being included moving and shaking the signs we all have known since we were born what does it bring to the zodiac table?

People with this new sign are known for their intense curiosity, openness and passion on top of their fierce jealousy.  They have a great sense of humour and an eagerness to learn.  This sign is also very attached to family life and dreams of living happily ever.

But will those former Archers be happy to adopt this man bearing a snake or are we prepared to all shuffle around to accmmodate this unchosen constellation?

Does this wobble in the Earth's rotation cause the stars to be in a different position have any bearing on the "tropical zodiac" system?  The answer is no, as the tropical zodiac, the system used by Western astrologers, there are fixed sectors of the sky through which the movement of the sun, moon and planets is tracked to create the basis for horoscopes.  It is therefore fixed and immovable and static regardless to whatever happens to the Earth's axis.

So even though the suggested dates for the star signs are:

  • Capricorn: Jan 20 - Feb 16
  • Aquarius: Feb 16 – March 11
  • Pisces: March 11 – April 18
  • Aries: April 18 – May 13
  • Taurus: May 13 – June 21
  • Gemini: June 21 – July 20
  • Cancer: July 20 – Aug 10
  • Leo: Aug 10 – Sept 16
  • Virgo: Sept 16 – Oct 30
  • Libra: Oct 30 – Nov 23
  • Scorpio: Nov 23 – Nov 29
  • Ophiuchus: Nov 29 – Dec 17
  • Sagittarius: Dec 17 – Jan 20

Its already written in the stars!

January 20th - February 18th



Aquarius is the sign of visionaries, unconventionality, and intellectual independence. Aquarius are the people who go against the flow. They are always after constantly discovering something new, forming new opinions and stubbornly traveling their way regardless of what other people think.

Aquarius are filled with contradictions; they like to be alone, yet they are social butterflies. 

Their personality lets everyone be free to think and be themselves. An Aquarius is never judgmental, they believe that we are all equal and entitled to our own opinions.

They are fluent and very witty, they observe people and learn how to interact with others through observation. They can be masters of manipulation. They can deal with any type of personality and adapt to any situation. Anything new is an opportunity to Aquarius.

Aquarius can act as an expert on any topic, they are very good at inflating their own importance.  

Aquarians will often change their mind about certain things, as the mood suits them. While typically intellectual, charming and well behaved, Aquarians will sometimes change their mind regarding important issues, or act in a very self-absorbed way.

Aquarius are well known for being free and independent thinkers that come to their own conclusions about things rather than simply relying on what other people tell them.

They don’t like to judge a book by it’s cover and prefer to keep an open mind when going into new situations and meeting new people.

Usually it takes a lot for Aquarius to truly lose their cool but if you do manage to push their buttons… well you might want to duck for cover.

They have a habit of bottling things up until they hit boiling point and explode out of frustration.

The Aquarius possesses many skills but being able to convincingly lie with ease is generally not one of them.

As a result when they find themself in situations where they are unable to tell the truth they often prefer to simply say nothing at all.
