NASA sneakily added a 13th zodiac sign a while back, like's it no big thing. Update (21/9/2016): NASA have since responded to all the confusion with this...
Laurie Cantillo of the Planetary Exploration, Heliophysics department told : "We didn't change any zodiac signs, we did the math.
The Egyptians recognize this sign to be a man named Imhotep who lived in Egypt around the 27th century BCE.
While most people probably make their important life decisions based on, oh I don't know, common sense and things like that, there's a certain type of person in this world that relies on the magic of astrology to help them figure what they're going to do. update the astrological signs for the first time in 2,000 years, meaning that a whopping 86% of us now have a different sign.
The sky is different than what the ancient astrologers viewed. Therefore 86% of people are living under the wrong horoscope. Well, this tells us one thing: government conspiracies are not a new phenomenon.

Now, on this page NASA has delved into some actual science.It works in the same way as the movements of the moon control the tides of the oceans of the world. People are reporting time and time again that what they read in their horoscopes comes true. It's no different from religion, where miracles happen across the world every so often. As long as you know how the language works, you can make up any horoscope you like.If anything, astrology is more accurate because these anecdotes pop up far more often. And that's why astrology has such a bad reputation.The signs of the zodiac have existed for hundreds of thousands of years.They are ancient signs that people have looked to for guidance.“If you want to get all technical about it, the reason for this radical change is down to the fact that the sky today is extremely different to how it was thousands of years ago, which makes sense.” Well, we’ve got bad news (or good, depending on how you look at it). Also, the scientific agency has not decided to shift its focus from factual research to studying .The misunderstanding seems to have come from a NASA Space Place page for kids, written back in January this year.However, they chose only 12 constellations to fit their existing calendar, which had only 12 months.“To make a tidy match with their 12-month calendar, the Babylonians ignored the fact that the sun actually moves through 13 constellations, not 12,” the NASA post explains.There’s trouble afoot in the world of make-believe.They picked 12 constellations, but there were actually 13 constellations in the zodiac, so the Babylonians left one out, Ophiuchus.The stars are a database of information, from overcoming struggles, to forming healthy relationships, to improving your character, and so much more.
