I was just informed by the news that I am no longer a Scorpio. I'm a Libra. A Libra. Two words. Bor-ring. I liked being a Scorpio. I like the mystique that went with it. I liked that whenever you read about Scorpios it tells you never to cross them. If they love you, they love you for life. If they don't love you, then they hate you. For life. Yep, that's me. The span for Scorpios used to be October 21 through November 22. It's now November 23 through November 29. How is it only six days long? And I only missed it by two days! I have some news for you astrologers, I am a Scorpio and I plan on staying a Scorpio. And that's that. I mean, I have to stay a Scorpio. What would I ever do with my Scorpio key chain that holds all the spares for our house?
So did you read about this? Apparently the earth is wobbling on it's axis like a drunk 19 year old at a frat party and this has caused all the signs to be off by at least a month. And the ancient Babylonians did away with the 13th sign, Ophiuchus so astrologers who want to get back to the true science of astrology (yeah, right) want to reintroduce Ophiuchus back into the game. Who the heck is this Ophiuchus and why does he think he deserves his own sign?
I actually did hear about this about three years ago on the Discovery Channel. I was watching a series called The Universe and one of the episodes was about how the astrological signs came to be. They said because of the change of the rotation of the earth that the sings were off by about a month.That was all fine and good. But nobody on that show told me that I was now a Libra. I don't mean any harm. One of my favorite people in the world is a Libra. He's so cute. But, it's just not for me. I. Am. A. Scorpio. Did you know that the most common sign for Presidents of the United States is Scorpio? I'm just saying.
This change shakes up things up a bit. I've supposedly changed. All my kids have slipped forward a sign. My husband Matt has stayed the same though. He's still a Leo. I could have told you that. Matt is a Leo through and through. What do I mean by that? Look up Leos, read the description. That is my husband.
So now when people ask me my sign, I will say "Well, I was born this date, but I'm really a Scorpio." And when they ask me how is that possible I will say in true Scorpio form as I stare them down "Because I said so."
