Bonecrushing….Astrology vs. Astronomy

libra-swimsuit-bottomdievca is a LIBRA, or so she thought.
All those years of great horoscopes…
down the toilet.

Per LiveScience.com:

It’s a great conversation starter: “What’s your sign?” But before you ask or answer that question, consider this: Your zodiac sign corresponds to the position of the sun relative to constellations as they appeared more 2,200 years ago! The science behind astrology may have its roots in astronomy but don’t confuse these two disciplines. Astronomy can explain the position of the stars in the sky but it’s up to you to determine what, if anything, their alignment signifies. In short, as you’ll see below, your zodiac sign is not what you think it is, and your corresponding horoscope can’t be right. [Read: Wobbly Earth Means Your Horoscope Is Wrong]

Here’s a table showing what the current Astrological dates are for your Sign and what the Astronomical dates are…they don’t really correspond and in fact they add a “new” sign Ophiuchus.

Doesn’t matter, dievca doesn’t want to give up her Libra status, Virgo – the virgin, doesn’t look too enticing. she was there many years ago and it was painful.
