Zodiac Signs Dates (A Complete guide)

In this brief guide, we will look at Zodiac signs dates as well as other things related to Zodiac.

Zodiac Signs Dates

The original 12 zodiac signs 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

The reason we say original 12 zodiac signs is because there was recently a discovery of a new constellation that basically throws a whole new star system into the mix, making the presence of a 13th zodiac sign definite, though it is said that Babylonians apparently always considered the presence of 13 zodiac signs and not 12 like the more recent people think.

Since NASA’s discovery of a new constellation, and the subsequent NASA blog post that stated that there are now actually 13 Zodiac signs, not 12 it put the entire astrological chart out of whack, and changing the zodiac signs dates completely.

The 13th Zodiac sign is called Ophiuchus and it’s the the zodiac signs dates for this sign is November 29 and December 17, and the fact that this sign now exists means that everyone belongs to different signs now, unless they were at a cusp or something like that, in which case some people might still belong to the same sign; it all depends on the zodiac signs dates.

The new Zodiac signs dates after the discovery of this new constellation and new sign are a follows:

  • 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

New Zodiac Signs Dates and Personality

The new Zodiac sign is Ophiuchus and the zodiac sign dates for this one are from November 29th to December 17th, which puts it right in the middle of sagittarius and scorpio.

According to astrologers, someone who is born in the zodiac signs dates of Ophiuchus will be someone who seeks wisdom and knowledge and they may often have a flamboyant dressing sense, which may be evident in their favoring of bright colours and wearing new and attention-grabbing dresses.

The main personality traits of someone born in the zodiac sign Ophiuchus are between Scorpio and Sagittarius and these people may also be extremely curious, open to change, passionate and very jealous.

Some of the more negative personality traits of this new zodiac sign may also include an explosive temper, and being secretive or far too egotistical.

However, these people may be known for their thirst for knowledge and sexual magnetism, along with their easy humor that helps them get along with people very easily.

Some other personality traits of the zodiac sign Ophiuchus are:

  • They are big dreamers and are good at understanding dreams
  • Wisdom and knowledge is important to them
  • Are family oriented and may have a great family but have to leave the home at early age.
  • May have good luck most of the time
  • Tend to be Visionaries
  • May make great architects or builders
  • Authority figures like them 

The NASA blog post that first highlighted the presence of this 13th zodiac sign and the new zodiac signs dates, also said the following about the emergence of this 13th zodiac sign:

“According to the Babylonians’ own ancient stories, there were 13 constellations in the zodiac, so the Babylonians 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 slopped over into the next one.”

“What’s more, the Earth’s axis has also altered since the Zodiac signs were coined – meaning all the constellations are now in slightly different places in the sky. The sky has shifted because Earth’s axis (North Pole) doesn’t point in quite the same direction.”

This makes complete sense and it not only provides new zodiac signs dates for you to acquaint yourself with, it also gives some more credibility to Astrology as being based in real things like the placement of stars in the sky.

However, most people still stick to the old and understood zodiac signs dates and they are not as aware of this new sign yet, which means that there are actually many Ophiuchuses out there who are not currently looking at their real horoscope.

Zodiac Signs Compatibility

When people look for zodiac signs dates they are mostly looking to figure out who they will get along with, and most people who are interested in astrology at all can be found guilty of trying to figure out what the zodiac sign of their crush is.

Here are some of the best Zodiac signs compatibility and areas where they might have to work a little bit.

Aries: Leo, Sagittarius, Gemini and Aquarius.

Aries zodiac sign compatibility is found to be best with signs with a fire element, like leo or sagittarius, and for other elements they may get along very well with Gemini or Aquarius.

Here is what Linda Goodman has to say about the Aries-Leo-Sagittarius compatibility:

“Not always, but surprisingly often, you’ll find easy empathy, mental stimulation, emotional affinity (or romantic fulfillment) with these people.

There will be strong sympathy between you, and misunderstandings will usually not be severe or lasting. The chances for harmony are excellent, and a happy relationship on a permanent basis is more effortlessly achieved than with any other Sun Sign.

If other planets (especially the Moons and Ascendents) between the two horoscopes are in square or opposed (negative) mutual aspect, there will be some personality clashes and tensions between you and these people—causing the compatibility you share to rock and waver

from time to time—although the basic empathy and understanding will always remain.”

Cancer: Capricorn, Virgo and Pisces.

Cancer can have great zodiac sign compatibility with signs that have Earth elements like Capricorn, or in other cases, Virgo or Pisces.

According to Linda Goodman, the pioneer of personality typing and zodiac sign compatibility in sun signs, the relationships between these signs can be great because they may all have a sort of seriousness and sentimentality that they may appreciate.

Here is an excerpt from Love Signs by Linda Goodman that describes why Cancer and Virgo is such a great fit:

Most Virgos are much happier when they’re alone with themselves than when they have to bend their somewhat measured and rather precisely patterned life-styles to those of other sloppy, strange, silly and impulsive humans, which makes them nervous and

uncomfortable. Somehow, at least in the beginning, the Virgins don’t feel this sort of discomfort when they pal around with the Crabs. 

There’s something soothing to Virgo about the Water Element of Cancer. The Cancerian gentleness and mildness of manner often cause the Virgo to feel as though he (or she) is floating on a quiet lake, now and then reaching out, dreamlike, to pluck one of the lovelier lilies, or playfully tease a passing school of mermaids and water babies. 

Frequently the Virginians feel freer and more relaxed with a Crab, less fearful of being restricted, bossed around, possessed —or of having their own personalities overshadowed to the point of disappearance. 

Also, Virgo is easily enchanted by the Cancerian’s marvelous Looney Bird humor, which is not too loud or clownish, not too sophisticated, nor yet too disturbing either—just the right kind of recognition of the ridiculous that allows Virgos, with their exquisite sense of critique and satire, to join in with some amusing observations of their own.

Leo: Libra, Aries and Aquarius.

Leo and Libra is another great Zodiac sign compatibility, and this is evident in this description from Linda Goodman:

“Leo’s pronouncements are expected (by Leo) to be received with more or less unquestioned acceptance, if not downright admiration,with some respectful genuflecting thrown in now and then, and Libra does love to argue (they call it discussing) every point which can be

construed as having the slightest possibility of choice. 

But the choice has already been made (wisely, of course) before Leo has spoken. Didn’t you realize that? No. Libra did not realize that. How can one make an intelligent choice between two courses of action without discussing the pros and cons back and forth for a reasonable length of time? The trouble is, with Libra, a “reasonable length of time” can drag for quite a spell. 

Leo shouldn’t be cross and impatient. All that decision is more painful to the Libra than to those forced to participate in the weighing of the scales, bringing in the sheaves—of common sense—and so forth.”

Scorpio: Taurus, Pisces and Virgo.

Scorpio and Pisces also make for great zodiac sign compatibility, but like other signs and their trials, these two may have their fair share of problems, according to what Goodman says about these zodiac signs:

“There will be times when the two of them will wander around in a classroom, office or house without an outward sign of the realization of each other’s presence. Anyone else in the vicinity may swear the two didn’t even notice each other, for often they say very little, back and forth. 

The typical Fish and Scorpion frequently speak without speaking, because they share a silent sympathetic thought pattern and are therefore able to communicate without verbal contact (words are superfluous), more or less in the telepathic manner of the visitors from space who have been said to communicate with Earthlings—not quite, but with the same conceptual blueprint.”

Gemini: Libra, Sagittarius and Aries.

The last significant zodiac sign compatibility is between Gemini and Libra, which may be a meeting of minds unlike any other, and it can lead to some rather interesting discussions.

Linda Goodman also proclaims that this meeting may be rather highly compatible and these two may have much to do together:

“Gemini and Libra will have lengthy discourses on every subject imaginable, and they both have immense imaginations. Sometimes The discussions are friendly, sometimes not. But they will usually remain on speaking terms, since silence for anything but the brief periods of time is well nigh an impossibility for both of them. These People do like to talk. Neither of them likes to listen.”

“Geminis love a mental challenge, and Libra gives it to them. But When the Twins try that Mercurial double-talk on Libra, it doesn’t always put them ahead. It can put them somewhere in the middle,occasionally even shortly behind center.

The childish charisma of Gemini can cause the Twins to do very few and magical things, like speaking the name of a druid twenty-seven times when a star is falling … hitching imaginary rides on the backs of friendly squirrels and grasshoppers … and looking for diamonds among roses blooming in the snow. Libra doesn’t normally care to waste time with such nonsense. In direct contradiction to their optimistic sweetness and their cheerful, sunny-yellow-beaming faces, they are coldly logical.”

Conclusion

In this brief guide, we looked at Zodiac signs dates as well as other things related to Zodiac.

Zodiac signs are quite fascinating and for most people the more they read about it the more they may get interested because they may learn about themselves.

Zodiac signs are also heavily criticized for being generic and talking about people in terms that most people would relate to, and for this reason it is important to not let the information about Zodiac run your life and to dabble in this only to a certain extent.
