Astrologist Susan Taylor's explanations:

Ophiuchus' 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? -

Zodiac elements: Is Ophiuchus a fire sign?

The zodiac elements are split into 4 categories; Fire, Earth, Air and Water and each zodiac sign belonging to particular element shares the element's own characteristics. Volatile signs like Aries, Leo and Sagittarius are fire signs for example, whereas compassionate signs like Cancer are water. 

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.

Where is Ophiuchus?

Ophiuchus, referred to as the snake bearer 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.

This is a huge change. I always went with being a Sagittarius but when I see this new sign Ophiuchus I realize I'm more like it than Sagittarius! But I do think I have really bad luck because my birthday is on Dec. 13th and now I'm the 13th zodiac. So many unlucky numbers.

My birthday is Dec 17 so that means I’m both Sag and Oph so basically I’m 2 fire signs, I would consider oph being a fire sign and I would say that fire describes me 🔥I love being a fire sign

Me too! I'm December 17th as well. I love being a sag/oph cusper. I also have a lot of fire in my chart in general. My rising is Aries. The only water really is my moon sign is Scorpio, which probably makes things even more interesting, lol.


Fire can become lightning if it’s focused enough pure passion explosive anger not just angerssion always want to be the centre attention intellectual smart sounds like lightning to me

I actually think ophiucus is the only lightning sign

I feel like because we are located between a water and fire sign that maybe we should be steam? We have no opposite as well and I get along with almost everyone so maybe we should just be special? :P

I read somewhere ophiuchus could be the only one eter sign. It feels right since is the only one that doesnt have an opposite.

Since we are changing the zodiac, can we change Cancer back to Scarab please!?!
