Here's some bone-chilling news.

Our star signs have changed! NASA has revealed that the dates which define star signs are erroneous, Gizmodo reports. The horoscopes haven't been assessed since 200 years when they were first calculated by ancient astrologists.

Ophiuchus: the 13th zodiac sign?

Over time, the Earth's axis has moved - altering the skies above us. This explains the change in individual horoscopes. According to NASA calculations, astrological signs are about a month out, and Ophiuchus - a new star sign has evolved.

“We did not change any Zodiac signs, we just did the math. The Space Place (an educational page for kids run by NASA) article was about how astrology is not astronomy, how it was a relic of ancient history and pointed out the science and math that did come from observations of the night sky,” NASA Spokesperson Dwayne Brown said.

Here are the new dates


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

ANKH | 5 years ago | Reply There's an error in your article. Astrologers first calculated the signs more than 3,000 years ago, not 200.
