Reasons I Refuse to Change My Zodiac Sign

Humor - Internet

14-Jan-2011

Introduction:Ophiuchus has barged on the scene and pushed the zodiac signs around. Some birthdays just slid around in the same zodiac sign, but others of us have been unceremoniously shoved into a whole new sun sign. Well, I'm not going to play along and here's why.

  • 01

    It's the Egg Thing All Over Again

    Remember when everyone stopped eating eggs because they were bad for you? Then, a few years later, eggs were taken off the evil foods list and it was determined that even the occasional egg yolk likely wouldn't kill you. I missed a lot of scrambled eggs in those years. Not again! This, too, shall pass.

    If It Was Good Enough on My First Birthday, It's Good Enough Now

    Just because someone has decided, in 2011, that there's been some sort of shift, doesn't mean my zodiac sign wasn't accurate on the day I was born. Haven't these people ever heard the term "grandfathering?" Go ahead and subject everyone born henceforth to this nonsense, I'm claiming homestead status.

    I'm Not Giving Up My Stuff

    So, what? Now I can't wear earrings in the image of my zodiac sign? I have to spend endless minutes in the check out aisle searching for a new horoscope book? I don't think so.

    I Yam What I Yam

    I've lived my life amazed at how accurately astrology described my traits and predicted my good fortune. If I change signs, who's going to pay for my therapy when I experience an identity crisis?

    Laurie A. Baum Says I Don't Have to

    Yeah, I never heard of her, either. But, according to SanDiego.com, Laurie A Baum is a certified astrologer and she says I don't have to change my sign, and that's good enough for me. I didn't know there was an astrologer certification process, either and I seem to recall that SanDiego.com was one of the sources that broke this nonsensical story in the first place. But, the authorities have spoken, and since they've finally said what I wanted to hear, I'll follow their lead.

    Id have to change my Scorpion tattoo if my sign changed -- that would be bad! Thanks for this funny list H5

    Great post! I AM a Leo. Period. ;) High5

    Great reasons not to change your sign. Mine, luckily, didn't even change. I'm a solid Virgo no matter what! :)

    I thought that whole announcement was pretty weird. It's like telling someone that they are really adopted, or that your sister is really your cousin. You don't mess with peoples identities without serious repercussions.

    Well, "I'm mad as hell and I'm not going to take it anymore!" I was born Aries, I will stay Aries. These geeks that want to change it up can just go away...I'll come back and haunt them after I'm gone if they say I'm not an Aries.

    When did the signs change? That's a new one on me, maybe I should watch the news more ??

  • IzzyDuncan 1/14/2011 Flag This Comment

    Very good! I'm not sure I now want to be a Leo!!

  • jseven 1/14/2011 Flag This Comment

    I don't care cause it means nothing to me but it is dumb to change it for whatever reason.

  • clewand550 1/14/2011 Flag This Comment

    Loved reading this list. Great job. H5

  • PupFashionista 1/14/2011 Flag This Comment

    The change only applied to those born in the last three years. I think you're safe. =0)

  • goodselfme 1/14/2011 Flag This Comment

    You know I hated being a taurus instead of a Gemini. Not that I have anything against anyone, I am with you, I did not like anyone just randomly changing my sign. I got switched on the score board but my "horror scope" is going to stay with me for life. h5

  • PriscillaBenfield 1/14/2011 Flag This Comment

    I am the new sign and now I am all confused!!! Thanks for this fun list! Wasn't it bad enough when they demoted Pluto, now they are messing with astrology?

  • ListingToTheLeft 1/14/2011 Flag This Comment

    Good for you! My sign stayed the same but I wouldn't change it either.
