Have you heard the Zodiac drama going on? Astronomers in Minnesota found that zodiac signs need adjusting due to slight shifts in the Earth's axis.
I'm not into astrology. But I must confess that I was excited about a potential zodiac switch. When I was in middle school, it was trendy to wear your astrological sign on clothes. Everyone would wear Libra shirts, or Pisces necklaces, or whatever suited their celestial fancy. But I am a Cancer. And no one wants to wear a shirt that just says Cancer.
According to the new system, I've been upgraded from a Cancer to a Gemini. Which is much cooler. You get NASA manned spacecrafts! And a roller coaster at Cedar Point!
Alas, it turns out that the shift doesn't apply to the tropical zodiac that is commonly used in the West. Just going to have to stick to my water sign ways. Whatever those are.
