Apparently there are two separate entities of astrology. Western culture (us) uses zodiacs based on the relationship between the constellations and the plane of the equinox, where eastern culture (the other guys) use the suns physical location compared to the constellations. For the easterners, their signs are the ones under scrutiny.
The news released yesterday has been known for centuries, but I guess in the "world of information" one misinterpreted article causes nationwide panic in hours. :doh:
