When I got home that night I sat myself down at the computer and began to research these puzzling questions. As I read and gather information I was finding myself with more questions. Imagine my surprize when I discovered that there has been a 13th sign ever since the people first began to show interest in over 2,000 years ago. According to some reports the Babylonians discarded the 13th sign because they only wanted 12. It seems that 12 signs were easier to handle.
Thank you for your comment. I happen to agree with you!! I’m not a beliver or even a supporter of this 13th sign, although it’s rather interesting seeing a different outlook I simply don’t think that it works out at all well.
Briana, you're actually wrong about the whole 'it's the astronomers' faults'. People have mistaken the words of Kunkle, in hype and fanaticism most likely. He never actually said that there had to be a 13th sign, he merely commented on the fact that while we base astrology via signs and stars, yet we actually disregard the 13th constellation in the Western Zodiac. The Zodiac itself is based on lunar cycles, but because of the leap year system, we actually cut our years short, bar that one year in every four. There are actually 13 cycles, much Jeff stated earlier, because it coincides with the positioning of the sun over the 13 constellations in correlation to the Earth. The Eastern Zodiac follows this. On the other hand, the Western doesn't.
