Your life and whole existence might be about to change thanks to the discovery of the 13th zodiac sign which is known as Ophiuchus. This revolutionary discovery falls between Scorpio and Sagittarius in the zodiac and has just made the astrological field even more interesting! This exciting revelation could potentially change the way you view your personality and for some of you, it may even change your original 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 bombshell and deserves its moment in the spotlight. In 2016, NASA updated the horoscope signs which led to the 12 signs becoming 13. Indeed, 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 and plunged into the unknown, this is where Susan Taylor comes in to explain what we need to know and whether or not its appearance changes anything. 

Astrologist Susan Taylor

Astrologist Susan Taylor's says: 'This sign hasn't be recognized like the others, 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?

It can be found between the constellations Aquila, Serpens, and Hercules. It's located south of Scorpius the Scorpion and to the east of Sagittarius.

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.

The black tiger is almost ready to make his move. He is currently blind. He is R, and she is S. He does not know who she is. Together we will rid our galaxy of the demon star.

She is too ready, but it's relearning to hear.

What does it mean to be born under a dark star?

It is a perfect balance of all elements therefore is the embodiment of the elements. If anything the snake bearer would be the sense of the elements and the bridge between dimensions. It is the force of the 4 cardinal winds and the galactic center combined and is the DNA store of human history. Someone born under those dates will possess traits of the representation but will not be the serpent. The dates of the birth of this prophet are hidden for safe keeping. Though if one had knowledge on how to read the berserker infinity clock it might be able to be estimated. It is a royal bloodline of star seeds integrated here on Earth that this birth comes from at the close of each cycle. That's all I will say. ;)

How you know this

Patrick said it best in Red Dawn. "What's the difference between them and us? We live here."

He and his band of brothers will sail far; to kill the nest of the evil queen. And rid our world of evil once and for all. For our world is ruled by a nest as well. Begin eliminating her soldiers immediately. They are wasps. Preditors. Parasites. They have been here all along acting as her eyes. They are are preparing our world for harvest. DO NOT KILL BEES.

The heart of the serpent belongs in the bull's chest.

You would be correct.

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