Astrology can be summed up as the belief that the alignment of our sun and various constellations in transit affects our lives on a fundamental level. This belief originated .
Now, astronomically speaking, a few millennia is chump change – but it does make a difference.
The stars are a database of information, from overcoming struggles, to forming healthy relationships, to improving your character, and so much more. This knowledge has been used since ancient times in various cultures, and now it has been passed to you.
The stars have shifted due to the wobbling effect of the Earth caused by the sun and the moon over the last two to three thousand years.
The sky is different than what the ancient astrologers viewed. Now, the constellations are off by about a month.

Check That List Again
Actually, that is not a new revelation. Ancient Babylonian astrologers discovered these thirteen constellations yet omitted Ophiuchus so the signs will be divided equally into twelve due to the 360-degree path of the sun.
Ophiuchus: The 13th Sign
The Ophiuchus constellation features a man grasping a snake and is more commonly known as Serpentarius, the Serpent Holder. This sign has been adapted into many ancient cultures, but in essence, is the same being.
In Greek mythology, Ophiuchus is identified as being Asclepius the healer and son of Apollo. Asclepius held the power to resurrect the dead. An enraged Hades persuaded Zeus to assassinate Asclepius with a lightning bolt. In death, Asclepius was placed as a constellation in the stars.
For the Sumerians, this figure was known as the god Enki.
The Egyptians recognize this sign to be a man named Imhotep who lived in Egypt around the 27th century BCE.
In the Bible, these attributes belonged to the Hebrew man Joseph, son of the forefather Jacob. Imhotep is the Egyptian name for Joseph.
Virtues Of Ophiucus
If you are born between November 29 through December 17, you are truly under the sign Ophiucus. These characteristics may define you better than Scorpio or Sagittarius.

- Poetic, inventive
- Seeks higher education and wisdom
- Has secret enemies in family or close associations
- High achiever
- Likes to wear vibrant colors and plaid design.
