Also known as the Serpentarius, the new zodiac sign Ophiuchus is a rarely used astrological sign. The new zodiac sign resembles a man holding a huge serpent over his shoulders. The Ophiuchus zodiac is known to have been used in the Roman era, and is described in Ptolemy's Almagest from the 2nd century AD.
Accoring to astronomer Parke Kunkle, the Earth's changing alignment in the last 3,000 years has prompted new consideration of the sign into standard zodiacs.
In fact, the sign you are born into now are different than what you've been led to believe your entire life.
Kunkle said: "This is not something that happened today. This has gone on for thousands of years," says Kunkle.
"Because of this change of tilt, the Earth is really over here in effect and Sun is in a different constellation than it was 3,000 years ago."
Now instead of the standard 12 zodiac signs, we have a new zodiac of 13. Certainly there are people who's zodiac signs are changed. The new 13 zodiac sign dates, revised of course, would follow the schedule below:
Capricorn: Jan. 20 - Feb. 16
Aquarius: Feb. 16 - March 11
Pisces: March 11- April 18
Aries: April 18- May 13
Taurus: May 13- June 21
Gemini: June 21- July 20
Cancer: July 20- Aug. 10
Leo: Aug. 10- Sept. 16
Virgo: Sept. 16- Oct. 30
Libra: Oct. 30- Nov. 23
Scorpio: Nov. 23- Nov. 29
Ophiuchus: Nov. 29- Dec. 17
Sagittarius: Dec. 17- Jan. 20
