As western civilization reels amid shocking revelations that due to the earth’s wobble, most of our astrological identities have in fact been wrongly assigned, you might consider laying down your allegiance to your star sign, and picking up a Chinese calendar.

The Chinese zodiac identifies us according to the lunar year in which we were born. There are twelve lunar signs in all, honoring twelve animals. Origin stories differ, but the Chinese zodiac remains the same, wobble or no wobble. At least that is my current, wholly unscientific understanding.

I am a Dog, incidentally. Happy New Year!
