Is My Zodiac Wrist Watch Missing a Sign?
It all depends who you ask, and the debate is rife, but will Girard-Perregaux have to do a little tweaking to its Womens Cat's Eye Movement Zodiac Watch? Will it have to squeeze a new sign between its Capricorn and Sagittarius depiction? Blame this astrological debate and horoscope catastrophe on the the astronomers from the Minnesota Planetarium Society. They have discovered ,as a result of a an earth "wobble" or the moon's gravitational pull on Earth, the alignment of the stars were pushed by about a month. So what does this mean?
It means your zodiac sign may have changed. Mine has.
I am (was) a Sagittarius. I have always been a Sagittarius and have identified with my sign, but now I am an ancient sign "Ophiuchus, the snake holder".
So if you are opening up the morning paper to scan your weekend horoscope, keep in mind you may not be who you think you are.
