What's This?

NASA has revamped the zodiac sign and even included a 13th Zodiac sign – Ophiuchus. Find out more about this mysterious new sign (especially if you are born under it)!


People are blaming NASA and NASA is blaming the Babylonians for having constructed an inaccurate zodiac chart that we have been following for centuries now.

After 6,000 years of zero alterations to the Zodiac chart, NASA has not only made significant changes to it but included a whole new zodiac sign and people had not even heard of before – the Ophiuchus.

So, what do we know about it so far?

Ophiuchus Fun Facts

While people who are born between November 29 and December 17 (Ophiuchus) are freaked out, they might have some solace from the fact that the sign for their zodiac is the most exotic of all the signs yet.

Ophiuchus is represented by a “Snake Bearer” or a “Woman Snake Handler” symbol, which sounds and looks pretty extraordinary for a new zodiac that has just been included in the zodiac chart.

Ophiuchus sits between Aquila, Serpens, and Hercules among the constellations, with Scorpius to the west and Sagittarius to the east, reports Inverse.

Also interesting is the fact that it is the only zodiac sign which does not have a direct polar opposite, unlike all the other signs in the chart. This is because it is the odd one out, being the 13th sign.

While it is clearly visible during the summer, in the northern hemisphere, is appears less so during the winter. This might explain why the Babylonians decided to discard the Zodiac sign in the first place.

One of the closest stars to the Milky Way – Bernard’s Star – is hosted by the Ophiuchus constellation.

Since the zodiac signs are not spread out equidistance to each other (that is, each sharing a month within a year), Ophiuchus only inhabits 18 days of a year because the sun aligns with this constellation for a brief period of time.

Ophiuchus Characteristic Traits

While 86% percent of the earth’s population now has different zodiac signs to get acquainted and identify with, the hardest hit are the people who are born under Ophiuchus.

Very few things are currently known about this mysterious 13th zodiac sign and almost all of them are speculations.

Resting between the zodiac signs Scorpion and Sagittarius, it is predicted that it might share some mutual characteristic properties of both.

According to Bustle, Ophiuchans are not trouble-makers and tend to get along well with authority, even though they might occasionally voice out their opinions loud and clear, in spite of what others think.

They have an incessant need to expand their knowledge and seek out the truth. They are also broad-minded and always the curious cat.

Ophiuchans have a fine sense of both humor and style, which makes them irresistible to the outside world. One of the great career paths for them is Architecture.

Also, while they are extremely passionate human beings, they often tend to give in to jealousy, arrogance, and hot temper. If an Ophiuchan starts losing trust in you, it is really difficult to get back on their good books again.

This is an introvert sign which hates participating in social gatherings where the individual might not have much to contribute.

The lucky number for all who belong to this sign is 12!

    Hmmm, I remember my grandmother explaining the zodiac to me. The twelve signs are not constellations but divisions along the annual path that the sun takes through the sky (ecliptic.) The key reference points, the main four divisions, were set by the solstices and the equinoxes.

    The names for the signs were originally associated with a constellation that occupied that sign when the sun traveled through it. They would say “the Sun is in Aries” but that did not mean that the sun was inside the constellation. It was inside the same division of the path. Those signs were established a long time ago. The names have not changed, but the constellations no longer occupy the original divisions.

    Saying there is a “13th sign” (esp, one sits across two of the divisions) simply reveals that the originator was clueless regarding on the most fundamental aspects of astrology. All the rest sounds like somebody trying to generate buzz by confusing people.
