Your Astrological Sign May Not Be Yours

No, you probably weren’t switched at birth like in “Life is Beautiful.” But yes, it’s entirely possible to have the wrong astrological sign. We’ll explain it to you.

You were quietly tackling Gemini with your fellow astrology fan and Gemini (queens of self-deprecation) when suddenly there’s drama at the coffee machine. You gave her your time of birth, she solemnly announced to you “You are one of us” even though you had believed you were Taurus all your life? This is a more common scenario than you might think. Out of a sense of belonging, did you attach yourself to your sign, even if it was the wrong one? Consciously or not, have you spent years identifying with all the descriptions and horoscopes of Taurus? It’s the magic of the planets and there are a thousand biases that make you believe in astrology without wanting to. Did you even happily participate in the ambient “Gemini bashing”? Rest assured: it happens to the best of us. We explain to you why it is very common not to know your true astrological sign. And why it’s not so bad.


If you were born on April 4 or June 15, there is very little chance that you have the wrong astrological sign. On the other hand, if you were born between the 19th and 23rd of the month… You should think about preparing yourself psychologically. Your astrological sign may not be what you think. For the simple reason that the deadlines for each sign of the zodiac vary from one year to another, from sign to sign. For what? Let’s start again: the astrological sign is called the sun sign. It corresponds to the zodiacal constellation where the star was located at that time, according to astrological calculations (which differ slightly from astronomical calculations). And since the solstice dates vary and leap years add their grain of salt: they are never really the same, give or take one or two days.


Yes, your pendant purchased at Claire’s lied to you. The indicative dates on the horoscope of your TV program too. Or rather: they gave you an indication. You then read that Taurus was born between April 20 and May 20, that Gemini celebrated its birthday between May 21 and June 21, etc. How can you be sure you have the right date? Solution number 1: consult the ephemeris of the year of your birth to check the dates specific to your birthday month. Solution number 2: calculate your birth chart using your birth time. The second method is the most reliable and also allows you to be certain of your ascendant or your moon sign, we recommend it.


Have you just learned that your astrological sign is not the right one? Take this on the bright side. Already, it’s a real new beginning. We erase the prejudices and beliefs we had about ourselves and we start again. This is an opportunity to learn to discover another sign, another symbolism, another part of you. Especially since there is a good chance that other planets in your astral chart will still link you to the sign you thought you had. In any case, your birth chart will tell you: that you necessarily have a little of each sign in you.

Then, it’s a little lesson in humility that’s always good to take. Astrology is a human invention and relating everything to your zodiac sign is never a good thing. Perhaps you gave your sign more credit than you thought. But put things into perspective and remember that there are much more serious matters. You could have made the wrong ascendant.
