Ridiculous.

There's no way I'm not a Taurus.
 
2011-01-13 01:43:13 PM  
Now everyone with a zodiac tattoo looks twice as retarded!
 
2011-01-13 01:43:52 PM  
The BCS get a hold of this ?
 
2011-01-13 01:44:25 PM  
Cool. My sign doesn't exist anymore.
 
2011-01-13 01:44:31 PM  
I'm now some bullshiat Ophiuchus? All my terrible Sagittarius tattoos and limp-sounding excuses for my bad behavior ("yes, I'm a drama queen, but I can't help it; I'm a Sagittarius!") are suddenly rendered useless.
 
2011-01-13 01:44:39 PM  
So I went from neurotic to... Neurotic.

*shrug* Yeah, okay.
 
2011-01-13 01:44:44 PM  
mine has always varied depending on the particular calendar.

/that's what i get for being a border baby
//also, it's pointless and doesn't matter, so there's that...
 
2011-01-13 01:45:35 PM  
mine changed... what does this mean??! what will become of me?!?
 
2011-01-13 01:46:02 PM  
So now I'm scales rather than a scorpion? Woo?
 
2011-01-13 01:46:08 PM  
Hold on a mo'. So Scorpios only get 6 days? Cool. I always thought they were crazy buggers anyhow.

/Mostly joking... Mostly.
 
2011-01-13 01:46:16 PM  
Yeahbut, what about the number of planets changing?

I mean Pluto is gone and we got a couple of new ones.

The astrologers said now that we know they'd have to update the charts because, you know, it's not like the new planets were always there or anything.

Hi! Welcome to 1000 years ago.

Anyone who's ever taken even a remedial astronomy course knew this.

I have my own astrology system geared more towards modern Americans. For instance, I was born with the sun in Twinkies with the moon in Cheetos and Klondike Bar ascendant.
 
2011-01-13 01:48:38 PM  
Pretty massive shift, at least in some cases. Feb 21, I used to be a Pices (Feb 19-Mar 20 on the old one), but now apparently I'm an Aquarius. Of course, it's not really going to matter to people who buy into this, since it matters what the sign was/where the stars were when you were born, not during the time of the Babylonians, correct?
 
2011-01-13 01:49:07 PM  
So, now I'm a Capricorn instead of an Aquarius.

Well, damn.

A Fark Handle: mine has always varied depending on the particular calendar.

/that's what i get for being a border baby

which side of the border?
/do I need to contact the INS
 
2011-01-13 01:49:48 PM  
So I'm a fish instead of a ram now? Well woopdefarking do.

You maybe retarded if you believe any of that.
 
2011-01-13 01:50:13 PM  
I like it. I never fit the mold for Aries, but if I'm really a Pisces it makes a lot more sense.
 
2011-01-13 01:50:38 PM  
Not that I have any interest in signs, but I chaperoned a trip to the planetarium last year and apparently now they call Virgo "the Maiden" instead of "the Virgin" now. That kind of annoyed me.

I also learned that they don't tell kids to sit "Indian style" anymore, it is "OK kids, let's all sit 'criss-cross-applesauce'"

I understand why, but it still struck me as odd.
 
2011-01-13 01:50:46 PM  

Wombatzu: Ridiculous.

There's no way I'm not a Taurus.


Yeah, I'm now an Aries apparently. Worst car ever.
 
2011-01-13 01:51:22 PM  
Ha! I'm still a Taurus!

No way my ex-friend born on Feb 5 is NOT an Aquarian. He's too messed up to be a Capricorn.
 
2011-01-13 01:51:34 PM  
So they're gerrymandering zodiac signs, now? When will it end?!

I said "tailor-fashion" once to my husband and he thought I had gone carpet-chewing crazy. "Cross-legge'd" he understood (3 syllables there). But criss-cross? That's baby talk.

I'm a water sign, my ex-wife was an earth sign. Together we made mud!

2011-01-13 01:53:54 PM  
I was always on the border between Aries and Taurus anyways, so I guess I'm now officially an Aries.
 
2011-01-13 01:55:52 PM  

Headso: mine changed... what does this mean??! what will become of me?!?


You will become a meth addict and give beejes in an alley for $5.
 
2011-01-13 01:56:02 PM  
That just blows my mind.

KJUW89: I like it. I never fit the mold for Aries, but if I'm really a Pisces it makes a lot more sense.


I dunno.
I was on the cusp (yes I've just outed myself) between Libra and Scorpio. I usually say the only Scorpio tendency I have is paranoia. But now it claims I'm a Virgo? Ehhh... No.

I see myself as more Libra indecisive and flighty that Virgo fingerless-gloves nutty.

They should have gone all out and renamed it Maido.

/yeah, got nuthin
//except contempt for astrology and people who take it seriously
 
2011-01-13 01:57:21 PM  
What really matters is whether it was raining or not when you were conceived. That's what really affects you and the billions just like toy. Weather of Destiny.

2011-01-13 01:58:49 PM  
I was Cancer. Now I'm AIDS.
 
2011-01-13 02:00:58 PM  
So apparently I went from Leo to Cancer.

I DON'T EVEN KNOW WHO I AM ANYMORE!!!

Well, it's not unusual. These days everyone is full of contempt for just about everything.
 
2011-01-13 02:02:05 PM  
I was me, but now he's gone.
 
2011-01-13 02:02:07 PM  
If you actually believe in, or care about astrology, your sign hasn't changed. It still reads: Moran.
 
2011-01-13 02:03:29 PM  

Wombatzu: Ridiculous.

farking this

i have to go reexamine my life now.
 
2011-01-13 02:03:36 PM  
SO WHO'S RIGHT?!?!?!
Am I Aries or Pisces?

Now I know what those transtesticles must feel like.
 
2011-01-13 02:05:43 PM  

low.dose: F*ckin liberals, always changing sh*t


It's just like their equally evil cousins, the scientists. New evidence based on studies conducted after the publishing date of the science book I read during my time at Baptist's Seminary College of Orlando? Nope, sounds fishy to me. I'll stick with my unchanging world-view, like Jesus wants.
 
2011-01-13 02:09:20 PM  
So I am not a Virgo anymore!
I thought that already happened when I farked for the first time.
 
2011-01-13 02:12:26 PM  
I was Cancer/ Leo cusp, but now I'm Gemini?

I kind of like being a Cancerian. But I guess Geminon is alright.

/The beaches of Canceron are burning.

It will matter to people who buy into this, because the dates most widely used today reflect the Babylonian date ranges, not the current date ranges.

But this is a repeat from a good 2 or 3 weeks ago anyways.
 
2011-01-13 02:15:10 PM  
Usually I just point out to horoscope bores that the position of the midwife had a greater gravitational influence at their birth than Jupiter did.
 
2011-01-13 02:15:18 PM  
I'm no longer libra anymore? Eh, fark it.

These guys, however, are not gonna be happy about it.

Just under the wire for still a Virgo.

What I wanna know is how does this affect the Mayan calendar for everything going kablooey in 2012?
