So check out the gallery here: Golden Globes at GFY, and let’s discuss.
Best? I loved Scarlett Johanssen (maybe not her hair), Olivia Wilde (oh no, again with the hair), and the simplicity of Emma Stone (hair, decent, but I love her as a redhead, the blonde is for a role). Natalie Portman (regrettably, I don’t like her, but she looked adorable).
Worst? Sandra Bullock, love you, could not get past the hair (still on the hair). Maybe it was a nice dress? I don’t even know. All I could see was bangs. Julianne Moore, awful choice. Dislike. January Jones, no, blech. Angelina Jolie, does she have one of these sheaths in every color? Boring. Michelle Williams, so cute, but so misguided. Helena Bonham Carter, wacky, but she gets a pass because that’s part of her schtick. Similarly, Tilda Swinton.
Can’t make up my mind: Anne Hathaway. Chic or yawn or ewww? Jennifer Lopez, looks so seventies. It’s like she’s at a party on the Lido Deck of the Love Boat.
So let’s talk gowns! Who are your best and worst and hunh? And now on to my original blog for today…
The internet was in a snit last week about zodiac signs changing. It probably would have been a buried news item, a non-issue, if we weren’t all on Facebook and Twitter and reading blogs. But, ta-daa! This is how news travels in an Internet age. We’re all buzzing. Over one little statement coming out of Minnesota.
How can signs change?
The ancient Babylonians based zodiac signs on the constellation the sun was in on the day a person was born. But this was thousands of years ago when the Earth was positioned, in relation to the sun and the stars behind it, in a different place on the rotational axis.
The result: The sign you think you are, and the sign you really are in terms of the constellation the sun is in on your birthday are different, according to this Minnesota group.
“Because of this change in the tilt the Earth is over here and the sun is in a different constellation than it was 3000 years ago when this study of the stars began,” explains astronomer Parke Kunkle of the Minnesota Planetarium Society.
This is not a “new” thing, according to Kunkle. This alignment shifted a long, long time ago. It’s just, the Horoscope world didn’t shift with it. And suddenly, we’re all catching on. Or we’re supposed to. Supposedly.
Here is the new list of zodiac signs (plus a new one!) with adjusted dates:
- Capricorn: Jan. 20 – Feb. 16
- Aquarius: Feb. 16 – March 11
- Pisces: March 11- April 18
- Aries: April 18- May 13
- Taurus: May 13- June 21
- Gemini: June 21- July 20
- Cancer: July 20- Aug. 10
- Leo: Aug. 10- Sept. 16
- Virgo: Sept. 16- Oct. 30
- Libra: Oct. 30- Nov. 23
- Scorpio: Nov. 23- Nov. 29
- Ophiuchus: Nov. 29- Dec. 17
- Sagittarius: Dec. 17- Jan. 20
Ophiuchus is apparently represented by a man ripping a serpent in pieces. He is supposed to represent man and the power of man, with ties to Imhotep. Or something like that. I’m sticking with the old chart. I’m a Libra! I always have been, and no one is going to make me a Virgo. No one! It just doesn’t fit. So yay, I found a CNN article explaining why we should all stick with our birth signs and not change, and I’m taking that one to be the gospel. Stick with your sign! CNN explains it all.
Do you want to keep your old sign or change to the new one? Or did yours stay the same? Do you follow astrology/believe in signs? Just for fun?
