Ophiuchus - The Missing 13th Astrological Sign

Meet Ophiuchus, the constellation that was left out since it was discovered by the Babylonians more than 3,000 years ago. It was left out because we would have 13 astrological signs and we could not have that.  It didn’t fit neatly into our 12-month calendar.

New:

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. 23-29
Ophiuchus: Nov. 29-Dec. 17
Sagittarius: Dec. 17-Jan. 20

  2. I'm a Pisces and I always though my husband couldn't be one, he just doesn't have the personality of a Pisces, under the new sign he is Aquarius and it make more sense.

  19. I'm still a Pisces and my husband is now an Aquarius. I always wonder how he could be a Pisces, I though the same of my sister. Maybe because I was a dragon and he is a snake. But that would explain it.
