Brace for the worst: You may be a Virgo, scientists say.

There are many newspapers and websites that promise to tell your fortune, detailing where the planets were when you were born and what their future movements suggest about your future. It’s called astrology, and whether or not you believe in the signs of the zodiac, you won’t believe this: It’s all wrong.

Astronomers with the Minnesota Planetarium Society have dropped a bomb on the zodiac, noting that thanks to the millennia-long effect of the moon’s gravitational pull on the Earth, there’s about a one-month bump in the alignment of the stars. The result?

”When [astrologers] say that the sun is in Pisces, it’s really not in Pisces,” Parke Kunkle, a board member of the Minnesota Planetarium Society, told the Star Tribune.

And if the sun isn’t in Pisces, YOU’RE not in Pisces. Surprise! You’re an Aquarius! New zodiac sign dates are in order, it seems.
