The main reason astrological signs fail to line up with the zodiac, though, is a wobble in the Earth’s rotational axis called precession. As a result of its rotation, the Earth bulges slightly at.
Another thing we asked ourselves was: reasons why zodiac signs are fake?
We should dig a little deeper! because of the precession of the equinoxes, the equinox and solstice points have each moved westward about 30 degrees in the last 2,000 years.

Is sun sign astrology fake?
Neither is astrology fake, nor do people with same Sun Sign have same traits. Sun sign based Astrology is a oversimplified version of astrology.
