NASA made a big announcement this week – and one that not every zodiac enthusiast is happy with. It seems that as 2020 marks a new astrological era, the earth’s relation to the constellations has shifted, and new date range for horoscopes has been revealed.

Some of the differences are quite large, so it may be that you find yourself under a new zodiac sign completely!

Take a look at the new dates below, and our interior shopping picks to help you embrace your new sign in your home.
