Posted on 10/02/2016 7:57:11 AM PDT by LouieFisk
"NASA caused quite a stir when news of the space agency changing the 12 zodiac signs, adding a 13th sign called Ophiuchus, surfaced online. However, NASA has denied such claims and said that with or without the change in zodiac signs, astrology is still fake.
The ruckus was caused when Cosmopolitan posted an article, saying that NASA has decided to change the astrological signs for the first time in 2,000 years. The article says that the change was caused by the stars and Earth's axis being different today than it was in the past."

As usual, money well spent.
Then too those astrologers way back in the early centuries making those forecasts didn’t know there were a few more planets whizzing around out there.
This is stupid. NASA declares a 13th zodiac sign, why? To create a controversy so they can ‘respond’ to us rubes who have questions? NASA needs to have their budget fined for such arrogance.
Well, NASA believes in that primitive religion that worships “Climate Change”. It isn’t a stretch at all for NASA to endorse astrology as well.
Sounds like.NASA got punked.
NASA never did this. This is an email hoax.
P.S. Sorry Mars won’t be as big as the full moon this August, that’s a hoax too
It’s the Sign of Trump!
“NASA never did this. This is an email hoax.”
What exactly is the “hoax” in this story?
NASA didn't "change" the astrological signs. Precession of the earth's orbit caused it.
Ancient astrologists picked the "signs" 2,000 years ago. A lot has changed since then.
I've found articles about this as far back as 2007. I've surprised several people with this trivia in the past few years, explaining that they weren't born under the "sign" they thought.
And if anyone really thinks NASA is taking this seriously, the "announcement" was a "fun fact" posted on a web portal intended for children.
NASA didn't do anything, but it's not a hoax, either.
This is the actual article posted by NASA:

As far as I know, this is the first time NASA itself has addressed the topic:
Whenever somebody asks me “What sign were you born under?” I always tell them “No Vacancy”
“This is the actual article posted by NASA
the NASA link I just posted above addresses the current questions.
Whenever somebody asks me What sign were you born under? I always tell them No Vacancy
I say “Delivery”.
Wouldn’t 13 zodiac signs reconcile with the islamic lunar driven calendar?
Or might it be a load of Taurus?
The signs in the stars might or might not indicate influences to the good or ill, however it is people’s choice before God as to what to do in the face of these influences that matters the most in the end.
I take this stuff at arm’s length. Sometimes I notice that horoscopes and the like are attempting to coax me in a direction that God isn’t wanting me to pursue at that time, even if it might be a nice thing in the abstract. Like telling me it is a good time to travel when my greatest interests are developing to be local.
Born under sign of Taurus, born again under sign of Cross.
One would think that anyone trying to make a deal out of these constellations would notice when the sun, moon, etc. are “in” them and go according to that.
