Horoscope Dates (A guide to Horoscopes & Zodiac)

In this brief guide, we will look at Horoscope dates and other relevant information.

Horoscope Dates

Horoscope dates refer to the time periods that are allotted to the 12 zodiac signs, and based on what date the person is born on they may have the zodiac sign that covers that particular date.

Horoscope dates are as follows:

  • Aquarius: January 20 to February 18
  • Pisces: February 19 to March 20
  • Aries: March 21 to April 19
  • Taurus: April 20 to May 20
  • Gemini: May 21 to June 20
  • Cancer: June 21 to July 22
  • Leo: July 23 to August 22
  • Virgo: August 23 to September 22
  • Libra: September 23 to October 22
  • Scorpio: October 23 to November 21
  • Sagittarius: November 22 to December 21
  • Capricorn: December 22nd to January 19th

NASA recently confirmed that the sky is much different now from what it used to be 3000 years ago when the babylonians first talked about the 12 zodiac signs, and therefore there has recently been a shift in both the horoscope dates and the sun signs.

New Horoscope Dates

The new horoscope dates according to the earth’s wobble are:

  • Capricorn: January 20th to February 16th
  • Aquarius: February 16th to March 11th
  • Pisces: March 11th to April 18th
  • Aries: April 18th to May 13th
  • Taurus: May 13th to June 21st
  • Gemini: June 21st to July 20th
  • CancerJuly 20th to August 10th
  • Leo: August 10th to September 16th
  • Virgo: September 16th to October 30th
  • Libra: October 30th to November 23rd
  • Scorpio: November 23rd to November 29th
  • Ophiuchus: November 29th to December 17th
  • Sagittarius: December 17th to January 20th

Pauline Gerosa, who is the consultant astrologer behind Astrology Oracle, says about this new development “Ophiuchus has always been one of the constellations that fall along the ecliptic. It just wasn’t selected by the ancient astrologers to be one of the 12 zodiac signs.”

When she was asked about NASA’s comments about shifting stars and whether this new information has any impact on the zodiac signs, Gerosa explains: “[The shift] is due to the precession of the equinoxes. The constellations have not shifted, the wobble of the earth’s axis creates the impression that they have. Eastern astrology (sidereal) reads the planets against the current view of the constellations. Western astrology (tropical) sticks with the unchanging positions and accounts for the apparent shift via the great ages (around 2,500 years in each sign). Hence the move from the Age of Pisces to the Age of Aquarius.”

She also talks about the difference between astrology and astronomy, and says that “It’s important to remember that astrology is NOT astronomy, Astronomy is a scientific concept based on 3D material reality. Astrology is a symbolic language, a philosophy, a multidimensional concept. They used to be seen as two sides of the same coin and hopefully they will be again.”

It is important to remember that the NASA blog post in question did not actually allude to the presence of the 13th zodiac sign, it was something that the astrologers did after the NASA scientists provided information about the change in star patterns.

The NASA blog post actually just talks about the fact that the sky is very different now from what it used to be and as such, the calculations that Babylonians did 3000 years ago might need to be revisited.

The NASA blog post in question, the one that talks about possible horoscope dates and clarifies that they did not actually create another zodiac sign, says:

“The Babylonians lived over 3,000 years ago. They divided the zodiac into 12 equal parts – like cutting a pizza into 12 equal slices. They picked 12 constellations in the zodiac, one for each of the 12 “slices.” So, as Earth orbits the sun, the sun would appear to pass through each of the 12 parts of the zodiac. Since the Babylonians already had a 12-month calendar (based on the phases of the moon), each month got a slice of the zodiac all to itself.”

“But even according to the Babylonians’ own ancient stories, there were 13 constellations in the zodiac. So they picked one, Ophiuchus, to leave out. Even then, some of the chosen 12 didn’t fit neatly into their assigned slice of the pie and crossed over into the next one.”

When the Babylonians first invented the 12 signs of zodiac, a birthday between about July 23 and August 22 meant being born under the constellation Leo. Now, 3,000 years later, the sky has shifted because Earth’s axis (North Pole) doesn’t point in quite the same direction.
