New Zodiac Sign : Ophiuchus is the 13th Sign

Astronomer Parke Kunkle says that due to changes in the Earth’s alignment the dates of many zodiac signs have changed, according to NBC. In addition, there may be a 13th Zodiac sign: Ophiuchus.

Kunkle says that as the Earth and Sun slowly move the signs gradually change, as expected.

The change didn’t happen over night either. The 12 signs were designated to different periods of the year almost 3,000 years ago, when astrology began, and since then the Earth’s position in relation to the sun has changed.

New Zodiac sign dates represent that the astrological signs have moved west about one-tenth of a year. Zodiac signs span the sky across the “ecliptic.” The ecliptic is the swath of sky we perceive the sun passing through during the course of a year as the Earth orbits the sun. Constellations representing the Zodiac signs appear in the ecliptic at the time the sun appears to be rising and setting there. A person’s Zodiac sign is determined by which constellation the sun shares the ecliptic with at the time of birth. Due to eons of precession, the constellations representing the Zodiac signs share the ecliptic with the sun nearly a month earlier.

New Zodiac sign dates mean that people born from Dec. 22 to Jan. 19 are no longer Capricorn. Capricorns are now born between Jan. 20 and Feb. 16. most Capricorns can now claim Sagittarius, which is Dec. 17 to Jan. 20. Sagittarians born by Dec. 17 remain Sagittarians. those born between Nov. 23-28 now are Scorpios. However, traditional Sagittarians born between Nov. 29 and Dec. 16 now claim the new Zodiac sign “Ophiuchus.” That’s right–now there are 13 signs of the Zodiac. formerly determined Capricorns are now philosophical Sagittarians.
