It’s certainly put the cat among he astrological pigeons: Parke Kunkle reckons that there are thirteen star signs instead of the twelve that have been used for thousands of years.
There has been HOLY WAR about this of course. We weren’t happy on the Blather and in fact the whole Interweb has been ablaze with indignation.
This new system has been super scientifically calibrated using some kind of mumbo jumbo calculations and vague mumblings about the slipping of the galaxy axis and a shift in the space time continuum.
I remember reading about this years ago and knew that astrologers reckoned that the star signs had “slipped” a bit since they were first calculated by the ancient Babylonians. I’m a Taurus and I was always on the cusp of Aries. So I already read the two of them anyway to hedge my bets, picking the one I liked best. Ah sure why not.
And now according to this I AM an Aries. Phew! Thank the lord I did that already eh?
So I feel a bit smug. But other people lived their lives and picked their partners on the basis of astrology, spent a fortune on getting their charts done and also spent an even bigger fortune on ringing up Russell Grant premium phone lines.
What about you – how do you feel about the whole schism in the stars?
