Earth — Capricorn, Taurus, Virgo quiet and slow reactions, slow to change emotionally.
However, a phenomenon called precession has altered the position of the constellations we see today and has resulted in a shift of the zodiac constellations. The first day of spring in the Northern Hemisphere was once marked by the zero point of the Zodiac. Astronomers call this the vernal equinox and it occurs as the ecliptic and celestial equator intersect on approximately March Around B. Unbeknownst to the ancient astrologers, Earth continually wobbles around its axis in a 25,year cycle.
This wobble — called precession — is caused by the gravitational attraction of the moon on Earth's equatorial bulge. Over the past two-and-a-half millennia, this wobble has caused the intersection point between the celestial equator and the ecliptic to move west along the ecliptic by 36 degrees, or almost exactly one-tenth of the way around, to the border of Pisces and Aquarius. This means that the signs have slipped one-tenth — or almost one whole month — of the way around the sky to the west, relative to the stars beyond. For instance, those born between March 21 and April 19 consider themselves to be Aries.
