The main reason astrological signs fail to line up with the zodiac, though, is a wobble in the Earth’s rotational axis called precession. As a result of its rotation, the Earth bulges slightly at.
Reasons why zodiac signs are fake?
Because of the precession of the equinoxes, the equinox and solstice points have each moved westward about 30 degrees in the last 2,000 years. Thus, the zodiacal constellations named in ancient times no longer correspond to the segments of the zodiac represented by their signs.
Why is astrology fake?
We hate to be the cynical ones, but here are 10 reasons why astrology is probably fake… enjoy! Astrology has been rejected by the scientific community. Astrology has been rejected by the science community because it has “no explanatory power for describing the universe.”.
Neither is astrology fake, nor do people with same Sun Sign have same traits. Sun sign based Astrology is a oversimplified version of astrology. I argue with people when they claim Sunsign based Astrology doesn’t work, so, I cant claim that its validity can prove anything about astrology as a whole.
A frequent query we ran across in our research was “What is the science behind the zodiac signs?”.
Then, NASA explained the actual science behind the zodiac. Astrology is rooted in the idea that your zodiac sign can actually influence your personality or future. But the zodiac is actually just constellations of stars beyond the sun that we can see from Earth as we orbit.
This post comes in the wake of an earlier NASA story explaining that your zodiac sign, or the constellation lined up with the sun at the time you were born, is probably not the one you thought it was. People got pissed and accused NASA of changing the zodiac.
“We didn’t change any zodiac signs, we just did the math,” NASA explained on Tumblr. First, NASA laid out the difference between astrology (wacky pseudoscience) and astronomy (real science). Astronomy is the scientific study of everything in outer space.
Arguing that astrology is fake might be just the wake up call they need . Pretend you are another star sign around someone who knows a good deal about astrology. See if they guess the incorrect star sign that you are pretending to be.
Why is ophiuchus not a zodiac sign?
The short answer to why the constellation Ophiuchus isn’t an astrological sign is that people are probably not going to stop using the traditional astrological calendar with which we’re all familiar.

What are the Ophiuchus sign dates for 2019?
According to astronomers, the Ophiuchus sign dates would fall between November 29 and December 17 . In fact, we ourselves would be born during the Ophiuchus zodiac cycle (our birthday is December 2).
This begs the inquiry “Is December 17 a Sagittarius or Ophiuchus?”
Ophiuchus Dates If you’re born between November 29—December 17 ( that’s you, Sagittarius) , you may have a completely new zodiac sign with new traits and elements to explore. Ophiuchus is unique in many ways. But one difference is that it has a much shorter sun cycle than the other 12 zodiac signs.
Can You channel the spirit of Ophiuchus?
You CAN still have fun channeling the spirit of Ophiuchus (just don’t call it a zodiac sign). We are all made of stars, so we can channel the mythology of any of the constellations and planets we want.
