Do you still believe in Zodiac Signs?

I can't believe that even the stars and constellations nowadays are changing its course. My zodiac sign now will be Sagittarius instead of Capricorn because of Ophiuchus. To those who haven't heard the news lately, Yes your zodiac sign is totally different now. Astronomer Parke Kunkle told NBC news this week that the Earth's changing alignment in the last 3000 years has prompted new consideration of the sign into standard zodiac. In fact, the sign you are born into now are different that what you've been led to believe in your entire life. Because of this changes of tilt, the Earth is really over here in effect and Sun is in a different constellation than it was 3000 years ago. Astronomers believe that there is a 13th Zodiac Sign called Ophiuchus, which falls between Scorpio and Sagittarius. What will happen to our fate now? Do you think that by changing your zodiac sign will also affect your life?

I do not believe that zodiac are really the determining factor of our fate. It is hard work and personal discipline that are qualities that tend to mold our destiny in life. I am also not a reader of zodiac signs and personally I think that changing your sign is nothing if their is no real effort on your part to alleviate your lot.

Yeah, I've read this article and had done some searches. I'm so amazed to find out I'm no longer a true blooded Sagittarius but under this new sign Ophiuchus. I can't believe that I am bond to change because of this . I don't rely my fate to horoscope signs. I am a firm believer of God's power!

Likewise here. But sometimes reading horoscopes are fun. And It only shows that they are not really true in guiding life's destiny.

p;layingideas hi i do believe the moon changes the tides but I would like to keep my sign as Scorpio as it is really me the way I really 'am and now someone wants to change things.so what is wrong with us keeping the signs we have had for years. I do not agree with those astronomers as I am a scorpio and am damned well going to stay a scorpio as long as I live. Ohiuchus be damned as it will not affect my thinking as a scorpio whatso ever. f

I've just read about this issue and it's like all over the web. From social sites to blogsites, a lot of people are quite puzzled with this kind of change. For me, I find it a little absurd to have our Zodiac signs changed. Why now? What's the difference. It's quite confusing despite the facts you've presented in this discussion. Anyway, from being a Gemini, I am now a Taurus. or so they say..

I don't really believe in zodiac signs. I think that we ourselves are responsible for our future and changing zodiac sign can't change our destiny. If we work hard and look the things positively we will become successful nothing can stop us. So really don't believe in astronomy.

I got your point. Only the creator knows our future.

Yes I believe in Zodiac sign and our every single movement is influenced by it. First we need to understand that we are a packet of energy rather that a body. It will affect our life according to our past karma. and we are travelling from one body to other body and every time spend our whole life doing all the stuff of day to day life but never sit calm in meditation where we belong to which is pure silence and there is no thought everything is empty. We need to know who are we on this planet earth b4 anything else. thanks

I have always had an interest in how the zodiac signs can work and I have studied quite closely and cast my own horroscope. Some of it was very accurate, where other bits could apply to anybody.. It is interesting, but I would not guide my life with it. _Derek

Good day playingideas65, I heard a little bit about this at the time you posted this a year ago, but now we don't hear anything more about it, hmmm...I wonder why. I don't believe in horoscope readings or any other future telling stuff. I used to believe in it and I even paid big money to get my horoscope done specifically for me by the time and day and such of when I was born. I used to go get my cards read and my palms read and tea leaves. I probably spent about $3000 in my life time, trying to see into my future. Then one day I see my aunty reading people's futures to them by tarat cards or palms being read, in a shopping mall. My aunty was no more a fortune teller than I was. That evening I phoned her and asked her about it and she told me she took a course and had a certicate to do it. She took the course at our university of all places. I never knew they offered such a course. She now does it for a living. I am no longer a believer when I found out anyone can take a course and become a fortune teller. Cheers and happy mylotting my friend , chris

Yeah that's another issue that my classmates are discussing. It also become troublesome for them in choosing what zodiac sign would they have. And that's another issue!:)

I don't really believe on Zodiac signs bt I found it interesting reading these kind of stuffs. Destiny is not written on papers, it's how you make your own. That's what I believe in.

since i was a little kid i saw zodiac signs as just some crap and till now have never believed in them. i even dont know what my old or new zodiac is, and dont believe in anything they say because for one i dont think we have a predesigned destiny but we make our own destinies.

Do you still bealive that the moon can pull the water and tides? Do you actually know what happens in a tomical level? If not then i understand its easy to dismiss that the planets have an effect on us.

I didn't believe in zodiac signs and the general predictions earlier. Some fit and some didn't. I think I fall under Sagittarius too (instead of the earlier Capricorn). But I do believe in horoscopes because that depends on the individual time of birth. Having said that, not all astrologers can write or read a good horoscope. So, it would be trial and error to find the right astrologer. The one who wrote my horoscope was good but I don't know where he is now and I don't trust any of the astrologers I met who read my horoscope after that. Some were right about some things and wrong about others...some were totally off the mark. Now I take each day as it comes...and don't bother about zodiac signs and horoscopes or even if I believe in them or not :)

My zodiac sign hasent changed since I am a leo it doesnt have any effect on that sign. I heard people say that in the United states it doesnt change but in other countries they are going by the new zodiac changes. I used to be hugely into astrology when I was in high school and I do not pay any attention to it now at all.

I never believe to those things, friend. God only know what will happen to our surroundings. If this earth come to destruction...it will be a destruction we can't stop it. I believe no one will know what happen into our life...

I think it proves that the whole thing is meaningless. How can they say that what you've been told your whole life is now invalidated and now suddenly, you're a different sign and a whole different person? How can anyone believe anything about it when after all these years, they just arbitrarily change it? I didn't really believe in it before, but now I know for sure it's a bunch of drivel.

I don't really believe in zodiac signs. They are amusing, and that is about it. I was always considered a Leo and it doesn't match me at all!! I didn't know zodiac signs had changed. I would be curious to see what I am now. My birthday is the 29th of July. If there is any change or you know what it would be now, please let me know. If I have a new sign, it might match me better.

hi, when i was a kid till now, i still believe in zodiac signs, but not always i mean there's only a time, because zodiac signs not really directly on us only, and i think that changing of my zodiac sign will not affect my life, because only me can drive and trigger my life where it to be.
