⛎ Is Ophiuchus a zodiac sign? No, it's a constellation

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.

Where is the Ophiuchus constellation located?

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. 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.

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

This constellation profile falls between Scorpio and Sagittarius, which means the Sun passes through it from November 29 to December 18.
