Is Ophiuchus the 13th Astrology Sign?January 28, 2011
Are You ‘Not’ Who You Really ‘Are’—has your Zodiac Sign changed?
You may not be the one you thought you were… the discovery of Ophiuchus forces you to think that!
There is news across the air that there is a new 13th Zodiac Sign Ophiuchus (pronounced as Oh-fee-YOU-cuss) and so, the Zodiac you belonged to, is no truer! You may be wondering about the fact that you went to bed last night as an Aquarian and woke up as a Capricorn.
Don’t freak out now, there’s good news from authenticated astrologers and it has something to do with your personal details. Read below to know more…
What’s an Ophiuchus?
Well, Ophiuchus is a constellation in the western sky culture. The image depicts a “snake bearer”. The snake itself is actually depicted in a neighboring constellation called Serpens. Ophiuchus is just the human silhouette part of the image.
Ok, so what does this have to do with Astrology and Zodiacs?
“Ophiuchus has nothing to do with Astrology,” say experts. It’s not an Astrology issue. It has to do with the stars — it’s not a sign, it’s a constellation. There are four seasons each with a beginning, middle and end. That makes 12 zodiac signs, and there’s no such thing as a 13th astrological sign.”
So, how did this myth on “13th Astrology Sign Ophiuchus” begin?
It began when astronomy professor Parke Kunkle of Minneapolis Community and Technical College told the Minneapolis Star-Tribune about the precession of stars over time. He said “Two thousand years ago the Sun was ‘in’ whatever it was in. Now it’s about a whole constellation off from that.” Kunkle’s quote went viral and was picked up by FOX News and other media outlets because people mistakenly assume that Astrology is based on constellations– But that’s not true.
So what’s the truth now?
Astrology is based on the four seasons, not on constellations — and the seasons don’t change. There is no 13th astrological sign.
What does this mean for you?
It means NOTHING for you! Your zodiac sign hasn’t changed. If you were an Aquarian yesterday, you’re still an Aquarian today — don’t worry, you’ll never wake up a Capricorn.

Excerpts from Experts
“This problem is not a new one to Astrology. Astrology has never been able to account for this change. It still follows the traditional system. This is so because Astrology is not a material science like mathematics or physics, but a spiritual science.” ~Dr. Pillai, founder of AstroVed
“The Government of India has already approved Astrology as a science, and the Supreme Court of India has given appropriate directions to the University Grants Commission. This is to provide grants to Universities, who can now start departments of Vedic Astrology since Western Astrology is very limited in its scope.” ~Ram Kumar, renowned Astrologer, AstroVed.com
Thankfully, your Birth Star will remain the same; no matter how much the Earth wobbles– That might indeed be a welcome sign for everyone.
