Ophiuchus: The 13th Zodiac Sign

Photo from here.

And then I woke up one day not anymore an Aquarian but a Capricornian. I have been living and believing that the traits of an Aquarian are mine so it was a headache inducing thought that I no longer match the traits of the Water Bearer.

Apparently, there's another zodiac sign--Ophiuchus (The Snake Bearer).

Here's another headache inducing fact: it is not the 13th zodiac but in fact the 10th, following Sagittarius. If you're born between November 30 to December 17, lo and behold, you are no longer a Sagittarian but an Ophiucan (?).

Photo from here.
The Ophiuchus represents a man wrestling a serpent and splitting its body into two. It is associated with Imhotep, a 27th century Egyptian doctor, and Biblical Joseph the Dreamer. Having mentioned the two names,   people who were born between November 30 to December 17 are healers, seeks higher education and enlightenment. As you will notice, the Ophiuchus sign resembles the caduceus and the rod of Asclepius--both are associated with the medical profession.

How come?

The earth tilted its axis a bit which made the constellations out of alignment. Further explanation can be read here.

So, there. Get used to your new Zodiac sign... it will remain that way for centuries (if you are still living).
