Even if the astronomers don't believe in astrology, those of you with a new zodiac sign who check your horoscope out really need some guidance right now. Especially if you changed from Cancer to Gemini (and maybe back again). While an astrologer will actually take your date, location, and time of birth into consideration if you're being given a personal reading (making this whole new sign issue a moot point), the generic horoscopes don't drill down. So you're just going to have to make the big jump from gregarious to mellow if you rely on your morning paper for guidance.
The Washington Post put together this handy list to see how your personality will change with your sign. The only problem is my favorite sign, Ophiuchus, has been edited out of this chart, and it looks like they mistakenly put Scorpio in its place. So Ophiuchus folks take note, November 29 -- December 17 is your sign, therefore your characteristics.
