Change is never quick or easy -- unless a sweeping change is made to the astrological calendar, in which case you may have changed Zodiac signs overnight.

Yesterday you were passionate and manipulative, today you are charming and vain.

Confused yet?

As it turns out, subtle shifts in the Earth's axis over the last few thousand years have thrown the Zodiac out of whack. In order to restore the original Babylonian Zodiac, scientists recently recalculated the dates that correspond to the time of year when the sun is actually in each constellation's "house."

The result? An entirely new Zodiac calendar:

Capricorn: Jan. 20-Feb. 16.
Aquarius: Feb. 16-March 11.
Pisces: March 11-April 18.
Aries: April 18-May 13.
Taurus: May 13-June 21.
Gemini: June 21-July 20.
Cancer: July 20-Aug. 10.
Leo: Aug. 10-Sept. 16.
Virgo: Sept. 16-Oct. 30.
Libra: Oct. 30-Nov. 23.
Scorpio: Nov. 23-29.
Ophiuchus:* Nov. 29-Dec. 17.
Sagittarius: Dec. 17-Jan. 20.

* Discarded by the Babylonians because they wanted 12 signs per year.

For those who rely heavily on the Zodiac as a way to define themselves, the acquisition of a new sign might come as something of a shock. Then again, maybe you just upgraded.

Does this new astrological order throw you for a loop?

    Anyone so misguided as to believe that there are only twelve distinct personalities - determined by the apparent position of stars and planets when viewed from the earth - will probably never even notice if you change the dates or personalities.

    You're still an Aquarius. The new signs are only for people born after 2009.
