What does the new zodiac sign ophiuchus stand for?

Ophiuchus Attributes: Ophiuchus, the 13th Sign Of The Zodiac, is represented by a man with a serpent wrapped around his leg. A symbol of medicine for several centuries, the serpent and cross symbol is still used in the medical industry today.

A seeker of harmony and peace, those who fall under the Ophiuchus sign have lofty ideals. They are often in charge of others in work situations due to their wise and intuitive nature. In situations when there are not in charge, they tend to fall in favor of those who are.

Above all else, Ophiuchus is the interpreter of dreams and premonitions and he stands for healing the ills of man. Ophiuchus represents longevity.

Why Did the Zodiac Signs Change?

Zodiac Chart ==> Zodiac Signs ==> The New Sign ==> Ophiuchus Horoscope

Minnesota Community College professor Parke Kunkle spoke about the change in zodiac signs in a recent interview. He stated that the change is zodiac signs is not a result of a sudden realization but on information that dates over 2000 years ago.

According to astrologers, the zodiac signs changed because the Earth wobbles on its axis. This effect slowly but surely affects the planet's alignment and leads to a new addition to the original twelve zodiac signs.

While many firm believers in astrology are angered by the sudden change, experts say that the change in zodiac signs is not a certain thing yet. It is still being speculated if Ophiuchus, the serpent bearer applies only to new births or also to long-time Sagittarians as well.

Sagittarius born between November 30 to December 17 can now be considered Ophiuchus, and most people shift back one sign to compensate. I hope you enjoyed your Ophiuchus horoscope! Read on to see the new astrology chart and new zodiac dates.

Scientific Evidence of the Thirteenth Sign - Why did the signs change? (video)

As explained in this video, the earth wobbles on its axis like a top when its begins to spin slower. This process occurs over 27,000 years, so it is not one that we notice in our everyday lives, but on the grand scheme of the astrological charts it may alter the signs depending on your perspective.

The New Zodiac Questionnaire - Express your opinion about the New Zodiac changes!

Two of my Facebook friends posted that they got a Zodiac sign tattoo, but with the new system their sign has changed! One of them has a Scorpio tattoo on her back and is now a Libra and the other got a Sagittarius tattoo on her shoulder and is now an Ophiuchus! I feel so sorry for people in this situation as I know there are many more like them.

So what's your take on the Zodiac changes? Personally, I used to be a Virgo, and am now a Leo. Even though I don't give too much weight to the Zodiac signs, I find this interesting because I've had my heart set on a tribal lion tattoo on my shoulder for some time now. Also, after reading up I like my new sign more!

Does the change to the new zodiac anger or upset you?

      The dates never changed in Western/Tropical astrology that like the ancient Greeks, follow the seasons. Only Sidereal/Vedic astrology has different dates and only very few of them make Ophiuchus a sign.
