I’ve never been a believer in horoscopes, but like all college kids I learned the sign of my fake ID, and knew that in real life I was a Sagittarius…or am I? Apparently I’m actually an Ophiuchus.
As if it wasn’t obvious already, this proves horoscopes are just a bunch of BS.
According to this article in the Minnesota Star Tribune, “the ancient Babylonians based zodiac signs on the constellation the sun was “in” on the day a person was born. During the ensuing millenniums, the moon’s gravitational pull has made the Earth “wobble” around its axis, creating about a one-month bump in the stars’ alignment.”
The Babylonians discarded the Ophiuchus sign because they wanted 12 signs per year instead of 13. Thanks for nothing Babylon!
In summary, horoscopes are completley ridiculous, but you already knew that, didn’t you?!
