Ophiucus: The Thirteenth Zodiac

Just yesterday, Parke Kunkle, an astronomer who studies Astrology introduced a new Zodiac Sign. This will cause the dates to be moved, thus changing your sign, for most. For the past centuries, we have thought it was only 12, that corresponds to 12 different periods of our year.

Ophiucus and Serpent

Who is? Ophiucus. It is an astrological sign also known as the Serpentarius sign. This has been existing for a while but widely widely recognized. After some intensive research on how Earth is positioned in our galaxy, it might be accepted to include Ophiucus on the line of the zodiacs.

I was born on the Cusp of Aries of Taurus. People tell me I have a dominant trait of Taurus and still touch bases on Aries. I don’t not mind having my sign moved somewhere as long as it is between the two aforementioned.

How about yours?

    Before you get all worried about the astrological signs. This guy is not the most intelligent when it comes to astrology (Kunkle, not this blog writer). If you use western astrology (which most likely you do, especially if you live in the USA) then nothing has changed. A couple links to read up on what just happened.
