The 13th Sign was a (bad) movie. (Slogan: There is a place where evil lives. Yeah, it's called Fontana).
Now there really is a 13th category for you
lonely women people who believe in astrology. That's right Oprah, check your birthday, because what was once Scorpio, Sagittarius, the whole enchilada, has been realigned as a result of drift by the earth's axis.
This according to Parke Kunkle of the Minnesota Planetarium Society. And the new sign is …
It would be so frigging cool to be the first guy in town with “ophiuchus” tattooed in his bicep. Total chick magnet. Plus, you know, 13 is evil. Such a bad boy.
According to Kunkle, the moon's gravitational pull has put the earth's axis out of whack in the millenia since the old Babylonians gave
jobless chicks people a reason to judge you by your birth date.
The original framework for the signs is so off that Kunkle says this new one is needed.
“When [astrologers] say that the sun is in Pisces, it's really not in Pisces,” he says.
