A few days ago, the die-hard enthusiasts of astrology were caught by surprise. NASA's announcement about there being a 13th constellation that has been ignored in the zodiac left whole of the internet in a state of Panic. The capricious turn of events surfaced and recommended that everything that impassioned zodiac sign enthusiasts believed in has been changed.

NASA's announcement was made earlier in January but has somehow got viral now. With the addition of this new 13th constellation with the 12 we already know, there has been a shift in the calendar between Scorpio and Sagittarius. The good news however, just came out again surprising those enthusiasts who believe that the stars will protect them from unwanted surprises.

Was it All a Rumor?

Dwayne Brown, NASA spokesman recently confirmed that this rumor isn't totally true. Our astrological signs have not changed and also this isn't the only time that such rumors have surfaced with such ferocity.

According to the myth-breaker site Snopes.com, threads for such a topic even date back to 2002! According to NASA, the earth has shifted from its positioning from what it held about 3,000 years ago, the current zodiac signs also may not precisely match up with their months, but it's the same as it has ever been. They never exactly did match up.

"We didn't change any of the Zodiac signs, we just did the calculations," Brown stated in an email to Gizmodo. So what do we infer from all of this? Well if you follow NASA, they'd suggest you to trust your own instincts and enjoy the starry sky the way it looks.

These Star signs were assigned by the Babylonians about 3,000 years ago. According to NASA's report, The 13th constellation, Ophiucus must have been purposefully excluded as it didn't match with the 12-months calendar. That was all working perfectly, but now there's been a change Earth's North Pole doesn't point quite in the same direction it used to.
