RE: Science has fixed Astrology
Actually, the calendar we use today originally only had ten months. That's why the last four are called September, October, November and December. (7,8,9,10 - get it?) Then they added August and July which were named for the first two Caesars.

As for the zodiac being off due to axial tilt, that too has been known for some time, and it is an argument I have used to debunk astrology for years, as well as the fact that there are actually 13 zodiac houses. Ophiuchus is actually named for a real person, and his symbol is the caduceus. I have no idea why this story is suddenly in the news as if we just realized it.

A friend of a friend raged over this. I've never seen anything like it:

I had no idea that anyone really cared THAT much. O_o

Apparently I'm a lion now. Big Grin I'm going to read both Virgo and Leo for me and watch them both be true! Big Grin As a matter of fact, I'll do it for all of them! Big Grin

Silly astrologers. Tricks are for answersingenesis.

I am 100% certain that I am wrong about something I am certain about right now. Because even if everything I stand for turns out to be completely true, I was still wrong about being wrong.

RE: Science has fixed Astrology
Why do we look at the stars to see what(horoscope) we are, shouldn't we read the astrological predictions and personalities to see what(horoscope) we are?

Correct me when I'm wrong.
Accept me or go to hell.

I think a psychological test would be even better.

RE: Science has fixed Astrology
Apparently I'm now this "new" sign. I looked around to see if some new traits had been invented for it yet, and sadly, there have. It's quite funny though:

Quote:Astrological traits must be specific enough to differentiate the signs, but general enough so that someone could look at the list of traits and say, "Yeah, that could be me".

Based on that, astrologers have gathered together a series of traits that would match such a person, including:

* Seeker of peace and wisdom
* Attractor of good luck and jealousy
* Interpreter of dreams
* One who reaches for the stars
* Wearer of plaid (this one is oddly specific)

The even sadder part is that I am wearing plaid pyjama pants at this very moment Tongue

The reason for the names of the months is that the year used to start with March and January and February were the 11th and 12th months. July and August were originally named Quintilis and Sextilis because they were the 5th and 6th months.

I stand corrected.
