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'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.

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? -

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.

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.

There is a fifth element which fits Ophiuchus, as it is different in so many vital ways. It is a spiritual force.

Why would your Zodiac sign change if you were born before the discovery of Ophiuchus? I have a lot of friends who's sign shifted but they identify more with their original. All of this confuses and interests me at the same time

The sign has been around forever. It was not included because it was and still is invisible to the naked eye. A telescope is necessary to see it. So.. it was discovered by many before NASA announced it. Therefore you were still born in Ophiuchus.

So I was born on 1t dec and happy to be an saggitarian. Suddenly this change just haunts me for no reason now I m more curious about myself

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.
