Astrologist Susan Taylor

Is Ophiuchus a zodiac sign? No, it's a constellation - Here's what Susan Taylor's says: 

This sign hasn't been recognized like the other traditional sun signs, meaning nothing will change for you, even if you were born between November 29 - December 18. 

Ophiuchus is in fact the thirteenth zodiac constellation, however it doesn't appear in traditional astrology. Western astrology doesn't take the constellations into account and instead 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. This means our Scorpio and Sagittarius friends can relax because their signs remain untouched. 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 it 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.

New astrological dates - What are they?

Following the discovery of the existence of a thirteenth zodiac sign, certain astrologers now propose new astrological dates, which include Ophiuchus. Here is the updated version of the zodiac sign dates.

Astrologers also claim that people with this sign have a great sense of aesthetics and are always looking for a peaceful life. Finally, people born under this sign are endowed with a very important capacity for reflection.

I think Ophiucus is Earth sign. Powerful and Stern.

Ophiuchus is returning the 5th element of Ether back to Earth’s planetary system, so natural order is able to be restored back to the true organic ascension timeline, thus releasing all organic living life forms on, and including, Earth, from the malevolent implementation of artificial, anti-life timelines. Ether is the transmutational catalyst needed for all life to transition to a higher state or form. It is said to be a mix of fire and water. Just as ether is a source for all others, so too is Ophiuchus.
