这篇报导说十二星座是错的,应该有十三个星座。正中,我们生日只差一天,我们不是射手座是蛇夫座。
zhè piān bàodǎo shuō shí èr xīngzuò shì cuò de ,yīnggāi yǒu shí sān gè xīngzuò 。Zhèngzhōng ,wǒmen shēngrì zhī chà yītiān ,wǒmen bùshì shèshǒuzuò shì shéfūzuò 。
This report says that the 12 signs of the zodiac are incorrect, and that there should be 13 signs. Zhengzhong, our birthdays are only one day apart, so we're not sagittarius, we're ophiuchus.
我知道啊,蛇夫座确实是第十三个星座。
wǒ zhīdào ā ,shéfūzuò quèshí shì dì shí sān gè xīngzuò 。
I know, ophiuchus is actually the thirteenth sign of the zodiac.
