Personality Traits of the Sun Sign Ophiuchus

The Ophiuchus Zodiac Sign is the mark of a special and unique person, the 13th Sign of the Zodiac, Ophiuchus the "Serpent Tamer" marks many very desirable character and personality traits.

Knowledge of the story of Ophiuchus reveals many of the traits that you are destined to encompass as a proud member of the Ophiuchii.

The Story of Ophiuchus: In Brief

Greek Legend tells us that Asclepius was rewarded with immortality in the heavens and given the name Ophiuchus. This reward is sometimes also considered punishment for defying the wishes of the gods.

After performing some dastardly deeds, the Great Hunter, Orion, was sentenced to destruction by the Gods, the Great Scorpion was sent to poison him. This sentence was performed successfully. Asclepius/Ophiuchus came upon the dead Orion and resurrected him using skills taught to him by the son of the Titans, Chiron.

Zeus, sent Asclepius/Ophiuchus to the heavens, immortal, forever crushing the Scorpion (Scorpion) under foot.  The act of healing and resurrection was a talent reserved to the gods, to Hades specifically and Asclepius act could not go unnoticed. The importance of this event is on par with Prometheus's theft of fire.

Alternately, the myth of Asclepius/Ophiuchus is based on the only real live human being to be granted a place in the zodiac. The Father of Medicine, Imhotep in Egyptian Lore, Joseph in Hebrew Lore and Asclepius in Greek Lore is said to be a real historical personage. The symbol for Ophiuchus is the rod of Asclepius, recognizable by most as the symbol for medicine -- the rod and serpent.

      Being a scorpio with virgo rising and sagittarius moon, I seem to have quite a few of those traits from this mixture of major influences. So i think it could certainly be possible to have an individual with these traits from the combination of influences of several signs.
