The 13th Zodiac Sign Revealed: 1/13/11

OPHIUCHUS – Discarded by the Babylonians because they wanted 12

Ophiuchus became the 13th Zodiac Sign on January 13, 2011. It includes those born between November 29 and December 17. It is associated with ancient goddesses with a snake in each hand and represents healing, medicine and enlightenment, very similar to the common medical icons in today’s medical industry. It is associated with the galactic center and the black hole.


Mythological history: the figure represents the Healer, Asclepius, who learned the secrets of keeping death at bay after observing one serpent bringing another healing herbs. To prevent the entire race from being immortal (having eternal life) under Asclepius care, Zeus killed him with a bolt of lightning, but later placed his image in the heavens to honor his good works. Ophiuchus is close to that of Sagittarius, which has at times been believed to represent Chiron (mentor of Asclepius).


The new Zodiac sign dates are as follows:

Capricorn: Jan 20 – Feb 16
Aquarius: Feb 16 – Mar 11
Pisces:  Mar 11 – Apr 18
Aries: Apr 18 – May 13
Taurus: May 13 – Jun 21
Gemini: Jun 21 – Jul 20
Cancer: Jul 20 – Aug 10
Leo: Aug 10 – Sep 16
Virgo: Sept 16 – Oct 30
Libra: Oct 30 – Nov 23
Scorpio: Nov 23 – Nov 29
Ophiuchus: Nov 29 – Dec 17
Sagittarius: Dec 17 – Jan 20

At first I paid it no mind as I saw the comments float around twitter and facebook but until I did some research and realized that my birthdate was given the actual 13th forgotten about Zodiac name, I became excited as I found so many similar characteristics matching the traits that I have begun to accumulate through the last 8 years of my life. There will be some that laugh and joke about it, complain about it and get irritated by it but for me, I’m a happy camper!! =) Change is good!!
