You’ve been reading the wrong horoscope: Your REAL star sign, revealed!

It turns out you’ve probably been reading the wrong horoscope for years now; time to find out your real star sign…

Whether you religiously check the horoscopes each and every single day, or you don’t believe in astrology whatsoever, you probably are familiar with your star sign.

After all, 98% of people know whether they’re a Taurus, or a Libra, or a Scorpio, or whatever.

So it’s pretty surprising to think that we’ve probably been reading the wrong ones all this time, isn’t it?

Yup, BBC iWonder have revealed that a whopping 86% of us were actually born under a different constellation to our star sign, based on how the sky exists today.

They explain: “The dates of the ‘star signs’ were fixed, over 2,000 years ago, when the zodiac was first devised.

“Then, they corresponded to the constellation of stars that appeared behind the Sun on the day you were born.

“But an astronomical phenomenon, unknown at the time, means that the constellations have drifted since then.”

Which, to put it bluntly, means that the sky has changed and we’re all reading the wrong horoscopes.

Damn it.
