Why the Earth's Wobble Means Your Zodiac Sign Isn't What You Think  

As the planet spins on its axis, it teeters back and forth like a child's top, and after millennia of staggering along its path around the sun, it no longer aligns with the constellations of the zodiac on the dates that were established in ancient times.

In astronomical terms, the wobble is known as precession, and it's caused by gravity tugging on the Earth's distended midri
