Wait, what sign am I now?!

I've learned very recently that, according to the internet, there is a new zodiac sign floating around that is causing much confusion amongst followers of astrology. The new sign's name?

Ophiucus. Can't pronounce that? Then say it with me. OFF-ee-YOO-kuss. (Yeah, I think that's a very strange pronunciation. For a while, I thought it was oh-PHI-uh-kuss. O,o)

But wait, it gets even weirder. Now that there are 13 zodiac signs, take a look at the brand new dates:
Capricorn: Jan. 20 – Feb. 16
Aquarius: Feb. 16 – March 11
Pisces: March 11- April 18
Aries: April 18- May 13
Taurus: May 13- June 21
Gemini: June 21- July 20
Cancer: July 20- Aug. 10
Leo: Aug. 10- Sept. 16
Virgo: Sept. 16- Oct. 30
Libra: Oct. 30- Nov. 23
Scorpio: Nov. 23- Nov. 29
Ophiuchus: Nov. 29- Dec. 17
Sagittarius: Dec. 17- Jan. 20
I don't know 100% for sure whether this applies to everyone or just to people born in 2011, but... According to this chart, it's possible that I'm no longer a Virgo, but a Leo. WHAT?!

So, you're saying I used to be this.
Reliable, Health-concious

But it may turn out that I'm this?
Generous, Creative, Broad-minded,
Faithful, Pompous, Leader

Totally insane.

I'm not sure whether I believe all this or not. I've always thought of myself as a Virgo, and I'd like it to stay that way. But now... doubt starts to creep in...

Those whose sign didn't change as a result of Ophiucus are lucky. You don't have to deal with "new zodiac crisis". =P

(btw, why does Scorpio apparently have only a week in it? O,o)

Well, talk about an identity shift.

I don't really believe in horoscopes, but they're like a fun game to me. People have always said my sign, Gemini, doesn't really fit me. My knowledge on my new Taurus' identity is kind of nil-to-nonexistent. I'll look it up.

The Virgo sign seems to be more on-point for you than the Leo, but that's not saying I don't see the lion in you ^_^

Beautiful background by the way.
I looooooooooove it!

I don't believe in horoscopes either, especially the daily ones. How can anyone predict the future for anyone, let alone everyone in your zodiac group? For every day??? I think some people must have a lot of time on their hands, making all their stuff up... 0,o

But I like looking up profile traits of the zodiacs, and finding that Virgo always fit me so unbelievably well, almost to a T.

With the new system, though... I suppose I can be a combination of Virgo and Leo. I believe I have all the qualities I listed here. Haha, I guess that makes me some kind of lion-girl, or a were-cat! LOL! ^_^

Oh, thanks so much! It's been 2 months, so I thought a change was in order. Went for something Spring-y. ^_^ Also, I just decided to change my font from "Sunshiny" to "Unkempt". A little easier to read, don't you think?
