New Zodiac Signs - 2011

  1. 1. PowerPoint Show by Emerito Music: Billionaire – Bruno Mars http:// www.slideshare.net/mericelene
  2. 2. New Zodiac Signs 2011 <ul><li>An astrological controversy erupted online after a newspaper article erroneously suggested that the dates that determine the Zodiac signs had shifted by about a month, throwing millions of believers into self-doubt and panic. The 'New' Zodiac Dates Are Actually Nothing New -- And Your Sign is Still Your Sign but click through to find the original and &quot;new&quot; dates for your sign. </li></ul><ul><li>The list includes Ophiuchus, a formation the ancient Babylonians discarded because they wanted 12 star signs, not 13. That's yet another example of how astrologers cherry-pick and ignore astronomical observations, Rao said. </li></ul>

  16. 16. <ul><li>Fear not: your sign remains the same. </li></ul><ul><li>The tilt of the Earth's axis has gradually shifted since the ancient times when the Babylonians determined the dates of the Zodiac. </li></ul><ul><li>The calendrical rejiggering also supposedly re-introduced a sign discarded by the Babylonians: Ophiuchus, alternatively called the much-cooler sounding Serpentarius. </li></ul><ul><li>In short, your astrological sign has not changed. </li></ul><ul><li>What has changed, subtly and very gradually, is the tilt of the earth's axis as it revolves around the sun. If you watch a spinning toy top, explains Kunkle, you will see its axis wobble. That's called precession. The Earth's axis does the same thing. It's currently facing Polaris, often called the North Star, but 3,000 years ago it was pointing at an obscure star called Thuban. </li></ul><ul><li>&quot;Three thousand years ago the sun was 'in' whatever it was in,&quot; says Kunkle, who is also a professor at Minneapolis Community and Technical College. &quot;Now it's about a whole constellation off from that.&quot; </li></ul>
