There is no RationalWiki without you. We are a small non-profit with no staff — we are hundreds of volunteers who document pseudoscience and crankery around the world every day. We will never allow ads because we must remain independent. We cannot rely on big donors with corresponding big agendas. We are not the largest website around, but we believe we play an important role in defending truth and objectivity.
If everyone seeing this today donates $5, we will meet our goal for 2018.
| Fighting pseudoscience isn't free.|
We are 100% user-supported! Help and donate $5, $20 or whatever you can today with !

It is interesting to note is despite containing the root Aqua and its symbol being the water bearer, Aquarius is of the element air.
By this system, we should honor people born between December 23 and January 20 (Capricorn) above all others, for their sign is the goat. Wow, this includes Jesus Christ, b. approx, 12/25/03 BCE. (No, not really. If we believe that whole "shepherds watching their flocks by night" thing in Luke 2:8, He was a summer baby.)

- Oh, no, I don't want to play with Scorpio children. And Taurus children are even worse — they're so stubborn and they charge around like they own the place! I'm awfully glad I'm a Virgo!
- Cancer has become such an unpopular term, due to a certain pernicious disease, that many astrologers refer to those born under this sign as "Moon Children" instead.
In early 2011, the internet launched itself into headless chicken mode, with the announcement of a 13th sun sign, "Ophiuchus," and the fact that many people would now be falling under a new sun sign.
