January 14, 2011 by staff
13th Zodiac Sign Ophiuchus, People are just buzzing about the new 13th zodiac sign, Media reports on the 13 zodiac signs and the change in the zodiac calendar has sent thousands in an identity crisis birth. However, the true meaning seems to have been lost in translation.
Amid the turmoil snowball on the proposal’s perceived astrological sign 13, several astrologers try to calm the panic astrology-believers with the assurance that nothing has really changed in their stars. Meanwhile, the astronomer who started the whole ordeal also spoke to clarify that he never claimed that Ophiuchus should be added to the existing list of 12 signs.
It all started with an interview Parke Kunkle astronomer at the Minneapolis Star-Tribune, in which the board member of the Minnesota Planetarium Society said the publication of how the Babylonians made the sign of the zodiac.
Kunkle said that the Babylonians based on the Zodiac constellation the sun was in “the day a person was born. As millennia passed, the gravitational pull of the moon has made the Earth wobble” around its axis, creating a bump about a month in the alignment of the stars, Kunkle was quoted as saying in the report of January 9.
“When they [the astrologers] say that the sun is in Pisces, this is not really in Pisces,” said Kunkle, indicating that most readers of horoscopes may be reading the wrong predictions and perhaps rationalize their behavior on the bad traits.
Kunkle, who teaches astronomy at Minneapolis Community and Technical College, also said there is no physical connection between the constellations and personality traits.
“Sure, we can connect the harvest to the stars. But personality? No.”
With the Kunkle’s remark that people are no longer looking at the sky to understand astrology, the report concludes on a note indicating that this reflection might be the reason why sometimes one day may not be exactly as shot expected. “
