Today’s generation of teenagers, and even adults have invested a lot of time and energy into keeping up with their zodiac sign. Those same people were given a shock when National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) announced the date ranges by which we define the signs.

Taking a closer look, a blog post published back in January of this year, NASA reinforced its followers that there are 13 constellations within the original zodiac. However, 3,000 years ago when people were planning for the signs of the zodiac, the Babylonians already had a 12-month calendar so they left Ophiuchus (the 13 constellation) out. With those factors and the Earth’s axis no longer pointing in the same direction, NASA explained that the signs, that most have come to know, have completely shifted in dates.
