Earth's axial precession has made it so the dates for the twelves signs are totally different, and there are in fact 13 constellations directly in the eclipsis, not to mention at least 3 on the very edge of it

At least get with the times

    It's the ecliptic not the eclipsis - duh. How many times, how many years, will it take for you folks to get this straight? This is invincible ignorance. The signs aren't the constellations. The constellations aren't the signs. The constellations are of varying sizes and overlap each other. The signs are 30 degrees each. The signs don't overlap. They have the same names, so I guess these up-to-date geniuses think every guy named Bill is the same because they have the same name? Therefore it doesn't matter if there are 13 constellations on the ecliptic or 30 or three. The signs are still the same and the Aries point is the beginning of the signs no matter what constellation it appears to be "in."

    The precession of the equinoxes was noted by an astrologer hundreds of years before astronomy existed as a separate field of knowledge. You folks always ask "Why do we need to know anything about astrology in order to criticize it?" Despite this obvious bigotry, this question is the answer. Get a grip- stupid.

    ^ This is extreme ego inflation stemming from early childhood abuse and resulting in low self esteem. The aim is not to educate you.. but to demean you and make you feel as vulnerable to the core as they feel now. The answer is not helpful at all.

    So what if a word is slightly off in YA entertainment? You obviously understood what the question was all about but pretended to be insulted. And you were but not by the posting of the question.. sounds like depressed, repressed mars and scorpio revenged anger is triggered and directed at the wrong persons..

    Clearly the poster is listening to voices of the past and needs help.

    Sorry I don't know why astrology is stuck in the past but know that some people are too.

    To be fair, *some* branches of astrology *do* take precession into account, but that hardly changes the fact that astrology is complete bunk. Astrology that *does* account for precession is still no better at its job than astrology that does *not* account for precession.

    I hope that helps. Good luck!

    Because people want to hear happy news and have something to blame.
    Why didn't I win the lottery? Answer, because you're a Taurus.

    Astrology is not a science it is nonsense is why.

    You are asking your question in the SCIENCE of ASTRONOMY
