Ophiuchus star sign - A Brief

It was defined that the constellation Ophiuchus is situated behind the Sun from 29 November to 18 December. It is a constellation that means it has nothing to do with astrology; it is a star sign. Steven Schmidt advocated the 13th and 14th zodiac signs in 1970, namely Ophiuchus and Cetus. However, the Ophiuchus is the 13th new Zodiac sign which is still controversial.

Ophiuchus sign - Not Really A New Star Sign

Ophiuchus is not a new star sign. It is one of the 13 constellations through which the Sun and the Moon pass during a year. NASA has shared a post stating that there are now 13 zodiac signs instead of 12 zodiac signs. But that is an astronomical subject not astrological. Ophiuchus is a constellation, a group of stars, and it’s existed for thousands of years now. That is why this is not considered as a Zodiac sign. The Sun remains in the Sagittarius sign from November 21 to December 21, During this period, the Sun is in front of the Ophiuchus Constellation from November 29 to December 17. This means that during this period the personality traits will not be the same as Scorpio or Sagittarius, whereas it must have the personality traits of “Ophiuchus”. The Ophiuchus sign is the only sign that does not have an opposite sign and has been depicted in the tales as a real man. Most of the people envy them as these natives belong to such an elite sign that they enjoy a wealthy and successful life. So the new dates with the 13th zodiac will be as follows:

  • Scorpio: November 23rd to November 29th
  • Ophiuchus: November 29th to December 17th
  • Sagittarius: December 17th to January 20th

The Main Reason Ophiuchus Is Not A Part Of The Zodiac

Constellations are groups of stars that occur far away from the Earth. The visibility of these constellations depends upon the location of the earth and the distance of these constellations from the earth. If you join the stars and use a bit of imagination, you will find all these groups making a picture of an object or animal. These are called zodiac signs and have an extremely important place in astrology.

Based on the positions of stars at the time of a person’s birth, astrologers make predictions about their life, achievements, success, failure, and other significant events. It is still a matter of controversy to include Ophiuchus in the zodiac sign. Well, none of the astrologers would agree to include another zodiac since this would disturb the practice that has been around for centuries. Although it has been more like a forgotten zodiac sign because the Sun passes in front of Ophiuchus and not through Ophiuchus. So no one actually can claim that at the time of birth the Sun was in Ophiuchus. Above all Ophiuchus is a constellation- a star and not a zodiac sign.

As it is clear that it is a constellation and that too, not a new one, it was there but could not create a place in astrology. There may be many reasons which are a matter of astrological discussions. We can just follow the path that is shown to us. So, those who are under the influence of Ophiuchus may have some different personality traits as that of Scorpio or Sagittarius. But what I would suggest is not to worry as of now and just be who you are!
