New Zodiac

A few days ago my friend sent me a text,

Her: Did you know that you are Virgo?

Nothing could have prepared me for the next few seconds of that day. Even today, I am still very much upset. Very. But yea here is how it went down.

Me: What are you talking about 

Her: Whats your star sign?

Me: Libra

Her: Better luck next time, 

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 

Her: New signs according to NASA 

The panic that gripped me. I was like wait a minute, Nooo way!!! I am a libra inside out, the traits and characteristics match perfectly. It can’t be. Nooo way!!!

Ridiculous I know, but that was my initial reaction. In those few seconds, my life flashed before me. I was convinced science and technology had perhaps a sound explanation. But being a Libra is something i have carried proudly since birth, followed and believed up to this day, hence you can understand how robbed i felt in those few seconds. What now, l thought. Does this mean i am a Virgo? So of course the next thing I did was race to the Virgo horoscope, my so-called new Fate and hastily I read through all their traits and characteristics. Actually, only a few were farfetched from my person, hence i solemnly accepted my fate. 

In that moment I mourned the loss of my Libra sign and was saddened at the life i have lived as lie. Only it has not been a lie. I guess it is important to always read and understand before jumping into conclusions.

Well seeing I was still flooding my friends wall with my wailings, she kindly sent me the link to the following Cosmo article, which i must say took me out of my misery:  

First of all it was equally satisfying to see the reaction of the author, which pretty much reflected mine. ” SORRY WHAT.” The new sign added in by NASA made me yell, and boy oh boy was I satisfied to read the authors reaction 

Oh yeah, let’s talk about ol’ Ophiuchus, shall we? NASA sneakily added a 13th zodiac sign a while back, like’s it no big thing. WELL. IT. IS.

Well all this happened in just about five minutes, and I am still to read further on this new development. Will probably scout for a ted talk while i am at it, to get a clear understanding of what this actually means. Does it mean l get to live the fist two decades of my life as a Libra and now l will be a Virgo till the axis changes again? Or was l already a Virgo, we just took long to catch on.

But seeing my initial reaction has been jolly wild I thought l would pen it down and share my shock waves with you guys.

For now all I can say is i have understood that the earth..blah blah  blah…has shifted…blah blah blah and as a result the new signs…blah blah blah. Oh and apparently astronomy and astrology are two different things. So we all good, whatever that means.

Change is an emotional rollercoaster man, am not ready!!! I will hold on a little bit longer to my Libra sign. End of discussion.
