The New 13th Zodiac Sign Ophiuchus. Questions

The 13th Zodiac Sign Ophiuchus has just been brought to my attention and while not a particularly new discovery it's existence is resurfacing online currently and this is the first I had heard of it hence the reason for this discussion.

Why the change from NASA


When the Babylonians first invented the 12 signs of zodiac, a birthday between about July 23 and August 22 meant being born under the constellation Leo. Now, 3,000 years later, the sky has shifted because Earth's axis (North Pole) doesn't point in quite the same direction

The constellations are different sizes and shapes, so the Sun spends different lengths of time lined up with each one. The line from Earth through the Sun points to Virgo for 45 days, but it points to Scorpius for only 7 days. To make a tidy match with their 12-month calendar, the Babylonians ignored the fact that the Sun actually moves through 13 constellations, not 12. Then they assigned each of those 12 constellations equal amounts of time. Besides the 12 familiar constellations of the zodiac, the Sun is also aligned with Ophiuchus for about 18 days each year.


If you were born between Nov. 29 and Dec. 17, you are an Opiuchus. Your sign is a snake-holding man called also called a Serpentarius, and you are a peace-seeker who has a thirst for knowledge and secret enemies in your close circles.

Date Range: Nov. 30 - Dec. 17
Element: Fire
Ruling Planet: Jupiter
Lucky Color: Purple
Lucky Flowers: pansies, calamus, black roses, etc.
Personality: capricious, hesitant, calm, thoughtful, cold-blooded
Best Compatibility: Leo, Gemini
Ophiuchus represents the courage and perseverance of fighting against death and people under the Ophiuchus sign can hardly be defeated. Being loyal and steady, they have a strict standard on the good and the evil. In addition, Ophiuchus people have their own ideal and goal and always stride forward to challenges with the strong motivation.

Do you read your Horoscope?

As Astrology and Astronomy are completely different do you think this is going to effect anything?

Are you born over the new 13th sign? Ophiuchus

Just curious to see if many people have a interest in Astrology and what this discover will mean to them.

People believe in all kinds of things.

I personally don't read my horoscope but I know many people do.

I don't think you should mock people because their beliefs are different to yours.

Be respectful it's no different any other faiths or religion.

I didn't mock anyone, but surely belief in this subject is open to debate. I've read every one of the Zodiac descriptions, and in every one of them I can see something about myself. Zodiac readings are just based on non-specifics and generalities that anyone can see something they believe to be true about themselves.

I felt referring to Astrology as hocus-pocus was mocking it. Perhaps I interpret it wrongly.

Absolutely up for debate and people can have different opinions.

I don't see it as mocking, but in the same way if people believe in it and their beliefs respected, so should it be for people that do not believe.

Each to their own, it doesn't affect me if someone else believes and follows.

“How does anyone believe in this zodiac hocus-pocus anyway?”

I must have read that the wrong way that all.
Only the poster can say for sure if mocking, but to me it's an expression of not believing.

However, it's just how I read it as it doesn't bother me lol

Anyway, onwards and upwards

I have always been Libra, well balanced with a chip on both shoulders.
Under this new system I am now Virgo which is impossible as I am rubbish at snooker.

Yeah squeezing in the new sign has bumped many people in to new signs but as you of course pointed out not everyone.

I think what it was saying was that it just wanted one or two signs effected, it had a knock of effect to all the signs.

Hopefully it's a bit clearer now.
