Has Your Zodiac Changed? + Roadtrip to San Sebastian

This week revolved around an inner-island adventure and a whole lot of work. I came to the conclusion that at its core, Puerto Rico consists of funerals, hot dog stands, vegetable stands, and fried finger food.

I noticed that a recent preoccupation has taken the world of social media by storm. In Your Astrological Sign May Not Be What You Think It Is, Live Science states the following:

"For instance, those born between March 21 and April 19 consider themselves to be Aries. Today, the Sun is no longer within the constellation of Aries during much of that period. From March 11 to April 18, the Sun is actually in the constellation of Pisces! (Figure 2) See also Figure 3, which demonstrates the precession of the equinoxes from 600 BCE to 2600."

Today the sun is no longer within the same constellation during the usual period, but that does not mean that it wasn't before. While I respect Live Science for stirring up some interest in the astrological world of the Zodiac, I don't think it is right to confuse people by leading them to think that their Zodiac isn't working because of a horoscope that they probably picked up from a generic site somewhere in the corners of the internet. Maybe that horoscope that you read on last Sunday's paper was not written by a metaphysics scholar or a gypsy immersed from head to toe in the world of astrology, but by a comic strip illustrator or even somebody in the department echoing a previous issue from another year. Don't believe everything that the media tells you.

Live Science also states that the Zodiac signs have shifted to the following:

Capricorn - Jan 20 to Feb 16
Aquarius - Feb 16 to Mar 11
Pisces - Mar 11 to Apr 18
Aries - Apr 18 to May 13
Taurus - May 13 to Jun 21
Gemini - Jun 21 to Jul 20
Cancer - Jul 20 to Aug 10
Leo - Aug 10 to Sep 16
Virgo - Sep 16 to Oct 30
Libra - Oct 30 to Nov 23
Scorpius - Nov 23 to Nov 29
Ophiuchus - Nov 29 to Dec 17
Sagittarius - Dec 17 to Jan 20

Don't worry about having 'lost' your zodiac identity anymore--this isn't true! Here's why:

Somewhere among the coexisting zodiac, somebody forgot to mention that birthed zodiac corresponds to time periods. While the shift have have changed zodiac identity for people born from now on, those who were born under a certain zodiac remain the same.  I am certain that a current shift will not make me any less of a Libra, even if the projections of light were extinguished years ago and took x amount of time to reach the Earth.

Those of you who are willing to renounce your previous Zodiac identity to take on a new one are basically cleansing and starting anew in my eyes, but you cannot deny that for certain years of your life you identified with and lived through the characteristics of your Zodiac first hand. This applies to those who believed in and researched their Zodiac in the first place, because I am well aware that not everyone believes in the Zodiac. I do.

The universe will continue to contract, expand and change… but that won't make anyone feel less of what they are. Don't feel confused because of one article that came up in the media. Seek proof for as long as it takes to base your answer off facts. Don't believe everything the media tells you, as so many before you have.

If you disagree, feel free to argue. I'd really like to know what you guys think about the matter!
