Ophiuchus: Thirteenth Sign | New Zodiac Sign and Effects on Other Sings

Ophiuchus | Astronomers overturn all astrological analyzes: the Earth’s movement has led to the twelve signs, but also to the apparent inclusion of the 13th: Ophiuchus zodiac.

Astrology has never been an exact science, but its inaccuracies have increased greatly over the past two millennia due to the relative change in the position of the Earth and the Sun over the constellations of the Zodiac, informs LiveScience

Thus, when they tell you what zodiac you are, astrologers refer to the zodiac as it was conceived after the Sun’s position over the 12 constellations over 2,200 years ago. In addition, there is also a 13th constellation, Ophiuchus, which is simply not included in the zodiac. The signs of the zodiac are calculated according to the position of the Sun over the constellations, as they were 2,200 years ago. But they are no longer valid because of Earth’s precession movement (the slow movement of the axis of rotation), according to astronomers.

The Earth’s Movement has changed the 12 signs we know, according to astronomers. Aries becomes Pisces, and people born between November 29 and December 17 are in the Ophiuchus zodiac sign. The signs of the zodiac are calculated according to the position of the Sun over the constellations, as they were 2,200 years ago. But they are no longer valid because of Earth’s precession movement, according to astronomers. In the past two and a half millennia, this movement was the cause of a shift in the point of intersection between the Sun’s orbit and the Equator to the west by 36 degrees.

That means the signs have “moved” westward for about a month, depending on the constellations.

For example, people born between March 21 and April 19 are considered the Aries sign.

In fact, between March 11 and April 18, the Sun is in the constellation of Pisces, not in Aries.


The constellation Ophiuchus (the Serpent) is known from antiquity, often called the Serpentarius, in Latin, and was included by Ptolemy in the list of 48 constellations. Ophiuchus is described as a man holding a snake in his hands, his body “dividing” the snake into two. Although the ancient astrologers knew of the existence of this constellation, they did not include it in the zodiac because it was “traversed” by the Sun in only 19 days. On the other hand, her presence would have contravened their conception of the number of zodiacs, which should have been equal to the number of months of the year.

Ophiuchus in Astrology | 13th constellation zodiac

Even today, Ophiuchus is not a recognized international astrologer’s sign, although in 1970 the British astrologer Walter Berg suggested introducing it as the 13th sign. The Ophiuchus constellation is the only one of the zodiac-inspired by a person. It seems that he was called Imhotep and lived in Egypt in the 27th century BC, being recognized for his vast knowledge of medicine. Imhotep’s memory has been kept alive for over 2500 years by both Egyptian and Greek and has been attributed to him over time the qualities of a god.

Representatives of the new sign seem to borrow from its characteristics.

Here are these:
  • are people who love knowledge
  • have a tendency towards professions designed to help people (medicine, social assistance)
  • they may be good architects or builders
  • life is marked by paternal imagery, and men have a strong impact on their children
  • attract the envy of the close people

According to the following table, we will notice that if we take into account the precession phenomenon, the zodiac sign of each one may be different from the one he has become accustomed to recommending. In addition, if you were born between November 29 and December 17, then your zodiac sign is one you never read a horoscope: The Ophiuchus Sign! The solar ecliptic passes through the constellation of Ophiuchus after coming out of Scorpio, writes Ştiri.TVR.ro.

But let’s see how the zodiac signs should look if we consider how much the Earth and the Sun have changed in relation to constellations over two millennia ago:
  • Capricorn – January 20 – February 16 (before: December 23 – January 21)
  • Aquarius – February 16 – March 11 (Before: January 22 – February 20)
  • Fish – March 11 – April 18 (Before: February 21 – March 19)
  • Aries – April 18 – May 13 (Before: March 20 – April 20)
  • Taurus – May 13 – June 21 (Before: April 21 – May 21)
  • Gemini – June 21 – July 20 (Before: May 22 – June 22)
  • Cancer – July 20 – August 10 (Before: June 23 – July 22)
  • Leo – August 10 – September 16 (Before: July 23 – August 22)
  • Virgo – September 16 – October 30 (Before: August 23 – September 22)
  • Libra – 30 October – 23 November (Before: September 23 – October 22)
  • Scorpio – November 23 – November 29 (Before: October 23 – November 22)
  • Ophiuchus – November 29 – December 17 (not included in Zodiac)
  • Sagittarius – December 17 – January 20 (Before: November 23 – December 22).

The first day of spring in the Northern Hemisphere was once considered the Zodiac’s zero points. It was called vernal equinoctial and intervened at the intersection of the imaginary orbit described by the sun in the apparent movement on the heavenly sphere and the heavenly equator. In 600 BC, the zero points were in the Aries constellation. This constellation consisted of the first 30 degrees of the orbit, from 30 to 60 degrees was the Taurus constellation, from 60 to 90 Gemini and the same for the other constellations of the zodiac.

The phenomenon called precession has changed the position of the constellations we see today. This is due to the gravitational pull of the moon exerted on Earth bombs and has a cycle of 25,800 years. The people born between November 29 and December 17 are in a new sign, Ophiuchus, because the Sun passes during that period in the constellation Ophiuchus.
