Ophiuchus: Real Details On The 13th Zodiac Sign

Your life and whole existence might be about to change thanks to the discovery of the 13th zodiac sign; known as Ophiuchus. Ophiuchus falls between Scorpio and Sagittarius and has just made the astrological field even more interesting! This exciting revelation could potentially change the way you view your personality and may even change your sign. We reveal all the essential information you must know, including its dates, character traits, essential facts and meaning.

The 13th zodiac sign is a truly amazing astrological revelation and deserves its moment in the spotlight. In 2016, NASA updated the horoscope signs which led to the 12 signs becoming 13. Our zodiac signs play a crucial part in our lives and it’s fair to say that since Ophiuchus’ introduction, things have truly been spiced up. 

Astrologist Susan Taylor

Astrologist Susan Taylor's explanations:

Ophiuchus is the thirteenth zodiac constellation, however it doesn't appear in traditional astrology. Western astrology doesn't take the constellations into account and focuses on twelve sectors that the Sun travels through in a year.

Although, its existence is more a subject of media hype and sensation than actual astrological fact. Astrology isn't based on astronomical constellations, meaning the signs remain unchanged.  Find out from Susan Taylor; can your zodiac sign change?

What month is the Ophiuchus sign? November 29 – December 18

This profile falls between Scorpio and Sagittarius which means the Sun passes through Ophiuchus from November 29 to December 18. If you were born between these dates, your world is about to be turned upside down because you are officially a native of the 13th zodiac.

Ophiuchus people are known for the intense curiosity, openness, passion as well as their jealousy.

Zodiac elements: Is the 13th sign a fire sign?

Unfortunately, the Ophiuchus zodiac sign hasn’t yet been assigned an element, but based on personality traits, the explosive Ophiuchus sounds like a fire sign to us. The zodiac elementsinclude Fire, Earth, Air and Water and each zodiac sign belongs to particular group and shares the element's own characteristics. 

Where is Ophiuchus located?

It can be found between the constellations Aquila, Serpens, and Hercules. The 13th sign is located south of Scorpius the Scorpion and to the east of Sagittarius. In the Northern hemisphere, the constellation is invisible to the naked eye, which explains why the Babylonians and Ancient Greeks believed there were only 12 constellations.

Well if this New sign is considered then would that mean the rising and moon sign would change?

LOL NASA did not update astrology signs, they did some calculations on the constellation, leave poor NASA out of this 🙂💜

This isn't a new discovery, ophiuchus. Has been here and more evidence truly points to this being the reason months got larger. Ophiuchus is suggedted to wax and wane. Jan 30 31 Feb 24 28 Apr 30 nov 30 Dec 30 31 would actually be Ophiuchus month

Ophiuchus is the sign representing powerful women and was intentionally removed from astrology, the same as witches were bunrt by men, to control women. There is a rich history behind this sign which is easy to research and when one does, one realizes that it is just about time for society to recognize the influence of this constellation as evidenced by what is happening all around us as political structures start shivering and society's old and outdated ways start shaking. Weeeeeeeeeee're baaaaaaaack :)

Hi. And about the 13th sign of the zodiac, I can say the following, people confuse astrology with astronomy. What does this mean? This means that even if the stars have shifted, it shouldn’t relate to the sphere of the Zodiac and Zodiac signs in any case. To put it simply, even though Ophiuchus exists, it is merely a constellation that has nothing to do with the Zodiac signs.

You've got that all the other-way-'roung darlin'.
