SAN FRANCISCO (GaeaTimes.com)- The news of the new sun signs that has come to light has raged a controversy between astrologers. While some are claiming that the actual alignment of the stars have changed due to the Moon’s gravitational pull on the Earth, others have remained busy in comforting thousands of confused people who feared that their zodiac signs might have changed.
The news seized attention after the Minnesota Planetarium Society reported that the Earth’s position in terms of its axis, had caused a change in the alignment of the stars. After the announcement of the astronomical society, a leading daily published that the change in the alignment of the stars had given birth to a new pattern of the sun signs. While Parke Kunkle, an astronomy professor claims that the wobbling of the Earth has caused the change in the alignment of the stars meaning that it is no longer the same as it used to be in the ancient time when the concept of the zodiac signs first came up. This stirred an uproar in the astrological domain bringing in several views.
Astrologer Georgia Nicols says that people are getting panicked without sufficient cause since the sun signs have actually not changed. She said that the whole buzz is not actually something new since Ophiuchus’, the supposed new zodiac sign is not something new for the astrologers. Many astrologers are claiming that the whole controversy is an unnecessary hype since sun signs all over the world is based on two formats. While some follow the tropical concept of zodiac, others abide by the sidereal concept.
