Zodiac Signs – the 13th Star Sign

13th Star Sign

Star Signs on the Move

Zodiac Signs – Are you a hot-headed Aries, a twin personality Gemini or an adventurous Sagittarius? Well, according to NASA experts and some astrologers, your star sign is no longer what you think it is.

After NASA’s discovery of a new constellation, a NASA blog post stated that there are now actually 13 Zodiac signs, not 12 – thus putting the entire astrological chart out of whack.

The 13th Zodiac sign is called Ophiuchus.  It is the star sign for people born in between November 29 and December 17.

That, of course, has a knock-on effect for every other sign, meaning the traits and personalities associated with each star sign may no longer be applicable to you.

“According to the Babylonians’ own ancient stories, there were 13 constellations in the zodiac,” the NASA blog post explains.

“So the Babylonians picked one, Ophiuchus, to leave out.

“Even then, the chosen 12 didn’t fit neatly into their assigned slice of the pie and slopped over into the next one.  “What’s more, the Earth’s axis has also altered since the Zodiac signs were coined – meaning all the constellations are now in different places in the sky.

“The sky has shifted because Earth’s axis (North Pole) doesn’t point in quite the same direction.”The 13th constellation, Ophiuchus, is symbolised by a man with a snake. On a Zodiac wheel, it would sit between Sagittarius and Scorpio.

Those born under this sign have a great sense of humour, an eagerness to learn, and a strong attachment to family life.

What are the new dates?

It’s an astrology student’s nightmare, especially if you’ve spent your entire life reading, say, Virgo horoscopes and thinking, “Yes, this is me to a tee!”  Now you must be acquainted with your new sign.
