Hive Social is one of the most popular microblogging services that shows chronological feeds and also bears some similarities to Instagram.

Undoubtedly, it has emerged as one of the top contenders of Twitter. But that doesn’t mean it is immune to various bugs and issues.

For instance, it recently got stuck at the ‘gray screen of death’ and also prevented users from uploading videos.

Hive Social showing wrong zodiac sign

Some Hive Social users (1,2,3,4,5,6) have now been reporting an issue where their profile shows incorrect zodiac signs after filling in the birth details.


@TheHIVE_Social I’m curious as to why my Zodiac sign changed after your update. Is there any way to fix this?

@TheHIVE_Social i don’t know my zodiac is not correct on the app i am Pisces and it is says that i am Aquarious…what happen?

It seems that the platform is reflecting a wrong zodiac sign after the recent update (1,2). Consequently, users are seeing incorrect astrological signs even after providing the correct date of birth.

The issue is quite frustrating for some as they feel that a wrong zodiac might also lead to misrepresentation of their image or personality.

It is possible that the app is now using modern zodiac dates since the current time frame is allegedly thousand years old.

Potential workaround

We have come across a workaround that can help fix the issue where Hive Social is showing the wrong zodiac sign. Affected users can try filling in their birth details in the American way (MM/DD/YYYY).

My issue with that was I putting my birthday in with the UK way DD/MM/YYYY but when I did it the American way MM/DD/YYYY it displayed the correct zodiac sign

Unfortunately, the team hasn’t acknowledged the issue yet so users can try the above-mentioned workaround for the time being.

We’ll keep tabs on the latest developments and update this article accordingly.
