WHY YOUR ZODIAC SIGN MAY NOT BE WHAT YOU THINK IT IS
While most people are aware that astrology is not science-based, it can be difficult to convince believers that a person’s behaviour and luck isn't influenced by their star signs.

However, even the star signs we assign to people may be inaccurate, as the Earth’s wobble means the dates of the zodiac aren’t what they used to be thousands of years ago.

Zodiac signs were originally based on constellations of stars, with a person’s behaviours and fate governed by the position of the sun at the time of their birth.


But, as James Kaler, professor emeritus of Astronomy at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, explained in an article for The Conversation, astrological signs no longer line up with the zodiac because of “a wobble in the Earth’s rotational axis called precession.”

According to Kaler, precession causes the Earth to bulge slightly at the equator during its rotation. The gravity of the moon and sun then “pull on the bulge,” which causes Earth to wobble.
