The new zodiac signs 2011 have shaken the axis of believers. With the new zodiac signs 2011, mankind has entered a new era that they haven’t seen for thousands of years. For ages, humans have identified themselves under 12 symbols, from Capricorn to Sagittarius. Yet for those born between Nov. 29 and Dec. 17, they now have to be assigned a new label. Thanks to the moon and its gravitational pull, the new zodiac signs have uncovered the missing Ophiuchus symbol.
For 3,000 years, those who believe in astrology had 12 signs they were born under. The rotation was Capricorn, Aquarius, Pisces, Aries, Taurus, Gemini, Cancer, Leo, Virgo, Libra, Scorpio and Sagittarius without fail, until now.
The zodiac now has newcomer Ophiuchus intruding near the end. However, Ophiuchus has always been around, but had never been discovered until now. In the last 3,000 years, it appears that the earth’s constellation has changed around without our knowledge, and has shifted our symbols.
Thanks to the new symbol, many people now have another possible sign to describe them. Capricorns are now those who were born between Jan. 20 and Feb. 16, while Aquarius stretches into March 11. Pisces’ reach ends on April 18, with Aries up to May 13, Taurus up to June 21, Gemini up to July 20, Cancer up to Aug. 10, Leo up to Sept. 16, Virgo ending on Oct. 30, Libra ending at Nov. 23, and Scorpio only stretching to Nov. 29.
The dates for the new zodiac signs were formed because of Ophiuchus, which has a good chuck of time in December. Those born between Nov. 29 and Dec. 17 are now an Ophiuchus after being a Sagittarius before. This writer is left right on the border between an Ophiuchus and a Capricorn, thanks to a Dec. 17 birthday.
Those who took on the characteristics of one sign may now have to take on new ones. But at the least, the 12 old favorites have established features and traits to believe in. For Ophiuchus, readers are still scrambling to figure out what it means and what it says about them.
So far, the new sign appears to be of a muscled snake holder. Like with all of the symbols, there are several differing myths around this one, which different readers can use to symbolize themselves.
Believers have found themselves in the stars for thousands of years, so they should be practiced in finding valuable lessons in this one, if they have to. Those with other signs might need to shift their personalities to match them, however.
