A couple of weeks ago the news broke that left a lot of people in shock. NASA has added a brand new zodiac sign, so everyone’s star signs got shifted! Social media blew up with mixed reactions – some were outraged, whilst others welcomed it, as the new signs seem to suit better… So I decided to look into this too.
My birthday is on the 12th of January, so I have always been a proud Capricorn:
Ambitious, hardworking, analytical and disciplined, but very stubborn
Do these traits describe me? Pretty sure they do!
But now, apparently, I’m a Sagittarius.
Energetic, adventurous, optimistic and independent, but brutally honest
These fit in too… So I decided to go to the most trustworthy source of any information: memes, and would you look at that, both Capricorn and Sagittarius fit!
So what am I supposed to do? Stick to the ‘old faith’ and traditional astronomy (as a true Capricorn would do), or embrace the new view and proclaim to be a Sagittarius?
Which star sign should I be?
Why should I even care?
I’m very skeptical of astrology. Horoscopes, let’s be honest, are a joke – why should you be more careful not to offend someone feelings, just on that day, just for that star sign? Or focus your energy on work to achieve great results, just on that day, just for that star sign?
Why? Because the starts are aligned? Surely you should be doing it every day? Yet many of us read them, and relate to them.
The star signs give us an excuse for our negative traits or actions:
It’s not my fault, it’s because of my star sign!
Ultimately, NASA shut these news down – let’s not forget that they are the experts in astronomy, not astrology.
Despite this, many of us started looking at different signs, trying to figure out which ones we can relate to more – but:
is this to explain some of our
shitty not so positive traits
to aspire for the new sign’s wonderful traits?
Let me know your thoughts.
