I was born at 4.30am in England, on Feb 18th.1947 Although not normally too thick, I still cannot understand why, after some fifty-odd years being quite happy as an Aquarian, I am now – sometimes, but not always – listed as a Piscean. Not that I have anything against Pisceans, but it has left me puzzled. Do you have the time to explain, please?

Dear Now Extinct Aquarian,
You are born on the cusp of a sign. ie; right near the very end or beginning. Your Sun is in Aquarius but the reason some scopes list you as Pisces is thus. Every year the Sun changes signs at slightly different times. eg; people born on March 20 one year are a Pisces but the same birthday the next year would render them an Aries Sun sign individual. Newspapers/scopes et al cannot obviously run an ephemeris to clarify this so they tend to either go for the most likely day the Sun is changing sign OR simply use the dates current that year.
It’s an issue guaranteed to elicit a few outraged e-mails a year. The worst I ever received was from a Scorpio furious that she had “become a Sagittarius without my consent.” She loathed Saggos, found them really feckless and unsubtle, could not bear their candor and apparent refusal to face up to their responsibilities, fervent desire to be stoned on a great beach someplace rather than shopping with her and alleged inability to not hit on her already ridiculously up herself Aries sister. Yes, there was one particular Sagg gentleman who inspired her wrath.
And a friend of mine who discovered she was not a Capricorn, as she had always thought, but a Sagg said she found that more weird than realising she was gay. Her whole career strategy had been based around being an alpha-Cap, organization woman. Does this answer your question???
