If you read the Slate piece the original poster linked to, you'll see that no, the signs of the zodiac haven't changed. What changes very slowly over time is actually the parts of the calendar when the sun is in each constellation. This is due to the various more complicated cycles of the earth's orbit and axial tilt.

I don't know all that much about astrology, but I do know that it makes no sense that any such large-scale correction to our orbital data would have to take place. That kind of thing isn't necessary anymore, because we take really good data. (And it hasn't really been necessary for at least several hundred years, I think.) There is especially no way there would be large corrections to our knowledge of when the sun was passing through the constellations of the zodiac.

So no, your sign hasn't changed.

I'll also say that, yes, I'm a scientist. But science enthusiasts are too angry about astrology. Sure, we don't have any data that personalities or events in our lives are affected by the signs of the zodiac. But the reason astrology came about is that it was incredibly obvious to ancient societies that things in the sky affected the earth - the most obvious of which is the sun, which clearly determines day, night, and seasons. And it isn't that much of a leap to say that other things might be affected by the night sky, either. That, combined with the microcosm-macrocosm view of the universe and the increasingly detailed observations they made of the sky, made it easy for the ancients to think astrologicallly. Further, complaints about the application of astrology to human affairs have been around for almost as long as astrology itself.

So to me, that Slate piece seemed pretty dumb for picking on astrology. No one actually informed on this kind of stuff cares.

"I woke up this morning firmly believing that I was an outgoing, courageous, independent, generous Leo. However, now I have to come to grips with the fact that I am in fact a stupid, sulky, inconsiderate, pessimistic Cancer."
