NASA Vs. Astrology: Which Side Are You On?
No, you don’t have to call your ex whose zodiac sign didn’t match yours and you also don’t have to cover your Aries tattoo! The recent discovery made by NASA has put social media outlets in a tizzy. For all of you living under a rock, here’s a beam of sunlight. Apparently, NASA has included a 13th constellation called the ‘Ophiuchus’ and suddenly everything you ever knew about astrology is wrong!
This new discovery might mean your Zodiac sign has changed. The 13th Zodiac sign has to fit somewhere in the calendar, meaning all other Zodiac signs need to be adjusted accordingly, to give you brand new zodiac signs, and people are confused. Some are reportedly upset over getting zodiac sign tattoos while others complain of an identity crisis!
Now, wait a minute, aren’t ‘Astrology’ and ‘Astronomy’ two different things? Well, yes and no. Yes, because that’s the way it is and no, because our headline loving bloggers and tweeters won’t have it any other way! All kidding aside, it is simple to understand the difference between the two. Astronomy is the science of the stars, the sun, the outer space and the universe in general. On the other hand, Astrology is, well, not as scientific! That is because no one has yet been able to prove that Astronomy works. It sounds unlikely considering how much time and effort millions of people put into finding, studying and analyzing their horoscopes but you have to realize, the truth is the truth.
You don’t really need to weigh the odds, the fact that astrology works has never been proven and probably never will be. So, what just happened is that NASA did some calculations. They have explained that the zodiac in its current form, was created over 3000 years ago. The 13th constellation was probably ignored at the time or has now appeared because the earth’s axis may have changed over this long period. So when NASA decided to adjust the astronomy behind it, the rest of us began to adjust the astrology.
In the end, it is for you to decide. Have you really lost your identity because you’ve lived your life thinking you were a Libra? Will you live your life differently now, because you are an Ophiuchus? If you really believe that a few stars, millions of miles away, predict or affect your life so profoundly, then didn’t they actually predict that you will not even know your real Zodiac sign until now, or did they?
What do you think of your new zodiac sign? Let us know in the comments!
