New Astrological Signs

Are you who you think you are? Maybe not, according to a new version of astrological signs.

The Internet is abuzz this week about the claim that most of us have new Zodiac signs.

Is it true? Well, as CNN explains, it depends how you look at it. Eastern astrology typically relies on sidereal zodiac (based on constellations), while Western astrology - what most of us are familiar with - has been associated with tropical zodiac (based on seasons).

Sidereal zodiac has a 13th sign, Ophiuchus, throwing a wrench on the well-known 12-sign system. If you believe in constellations like the ancients do, you may want to take a look at your sidereal zodiac. That's the "new" system.

While the debate rages on, whether we should adhere to sidereal or tropical Zodiac for our true sign, it's a great time to see if you and your friends would have a new sign if the system truly switched. Use our handy app below to find out! And see all new Zodiac sign dates here.
