Understand why your sign changed

If you think it is Leo (Or any other zodiac sign out of the 12 signs), you may be wrong. Studying Earth's movements will help you understand why.

⚠️Calm down! Before you start reading this report warning: the AstrologyThe theory about the influence of the stars on our lives is profound unacceptable By the scientific community. So, here no Let's list the reasons that put him on the spot or question his status, but only highlight a “little problem” in your horoscope that science can explain.

The whole issue has to do with The axis of rotation of our planet And its movement The initiative.

🌍Yes in addition rotation (which shapes the days and nights) and translation (Responsible for the 365 seasons), and the Earth has its movement The initiative.

Astrophysicist Rogimar Revel, from the Federal University of Santa Maria, explains that it is very slow and resembles the movement of a rotating top (See diagram below how it works).

“The Earth makes a complete revolution around the Sun in one year, while the precession period is about 26 thousand years,” says the astrophysicist.

🕗 Thus, due to the movement of precession, the north pole of the Earth's axis points to different places in the sky over time. Millennium. This has a very important impact in many areas of knowledge, since Drop the poles The ground in the sky changes over time.

Today she is PolarisBut in 13 thousand years, it will be another star: the Vega. Indeed in the Egyptian era it was like this Thoubana celestial body 270 light-years away from us, located in the northern constellation Draco.

❗This means that our vision of these and other stars changes over thousands of years!

Another interesting example is that because of precession and translation, the Earth finds itself in slightly different positions in its orbit around the Sun at each solstice.

We see the relative positions of stars differently today than we did a few thousand years ago. That is, the constellations themselves were different.

Attitudes have changed = your zodiac sign too (or should)

But back to talking about signs. What effect does all this have on your zodiac sign?

The whole issue is that astrology takes into account the position of the constellations in the sky to determine their zodiac sign – and these positions were determined long ago. completely time.

If you were born between July 23 and August 22, for example, you're likely (There are exceptions, according to astrologers), you are a Leo because this is the constellation that was behind the sun when you were born.

But since it was the Babylonian people – one of the civilizations that occupied today's Mesopotamia, Iraq and Kuwait – who standardized the signs 2,000 years ago, the exact constellation that currently corresponds to each sign changed due to Earth's precession.

“The horoscopes depend on the location of the constellations in the sky at every time of the year, meaning that if the location changes, the constellations also change, but astronomers [os cientistas, não os astrólogos] “They don't worry too much about apparent situations,” highlights Rogimar.

This way, in theory, your sign could be different from what you think.

Hey European Southern Observatory (ESO, its abbreviation in English) – they even did an interesting report on it – yes, an intergovernmental astronomy research organization did this calculation:

  1. Technically, someone born at the end of September of the year 200 It will be the balance. ♎
  2. If you were born on the same date of the year 2000He will be a Virgo. ♍
  3. And if you were born in a year 4000it will be Leo ♌

Confused? Want to know what your “real” sign is? By the same logic as ESO, just refer to one of the zodiac houses: Gemini is actually Taurus, Taurus is actually Aries, Aries is actually Pisces, and so on. (Normally, this rule applies to everyone, but leap years and births that occur during a transition between two signs can complicate this definition.).

And to have fun being found, remember the order of the tags:

  1. Aries ♈
  2. Taurus ♉
  3. Gemini ♊
  4. Cancer ♋
  5. lion ♌
  6. Virgo ♍
  7. Libra ♎
  8. Scorpio♏
  9. Sagittarius ♐
  10. Capricorn ♑
  11. Aquarius ♒
  12. Pisces ♓
