As of this year and the following years there will be a 13th Zodiac sign.

Ophiuchus

According to astrologial principles, the Sun travels from the constellation Scorpius and goes directly into the sign of Sagittarius, but due to the constant motion of the cosmos, the Sun enters, for a few days of the year, the star constellation 'Ophiuchus' before entering Sagittarius from Scorpius, thus creating astrologically the birth of a thirteenth sign of the Zodiac, which is named as Ophiuchus the Serpent Holder.
The constellation of Ophiuchus is the only sign of the Zodiac which is linked to a real man. This man lived in ancient Egypt around the 27th century BC, and his name was Imhotep. The attributes of Imhotep can also be found in the Biblical Hebrew man Joseph, son of Jacob.. Imhotep is credited with many accomplishments including the knowledge and use of medicine. It is said of Imhotep that he brought the art of healing to mankind.The symbol of a serpent, which is still widely used today to represent the medical profession, was used to represent Imhotep. Imhotep was also known as 'Aesclepius' to the ancient Greeks

I had seen an article about this, but did not really stop to read it... thanks for sharing. I am safe and am still a Leo, but my hubby would no longer be considered Scorpio, but Libra. So, it only applies to people that are born this year & so on?

Well, if we had to change by parents, my sister and I would all change. We all really reflected what our signs meant. I'm glad we don't have to change. But this business of anybody being born starting this year being the new signs is just going to make it confusing in the future.

I thought it only applied in the Eastern type of astrology, and it's not something new for those that study it, because they've known about the Earth wobble for ages. At least, that was in some article I read about it online. Other than knowing my sign is Leo, I don't read horoscopes or follow astrology. {shrug} If I find that article again, I'll post it for you. :)

thank you, and I don't know I haven't heard anything about the Eastern astrology (http://www.punjablinks.com/addons/astro/easternastrology.shtml) changing, just the Western.

You and I must have read the same article, Wren. They were saying this really isn't anything new and some astrologers have been trying to make this change for many years. Then another one I read said that this didn't really apply to the 12 signs people currently use because those weren't assigned based on whatever method this "new" thing is using.

But, like you, doesn't matter to me. I don't put any trust or faith in those things. They are created by man and will change at the whims of man. I'd rather stick with the One who is forever constant.

I have to agree with you 100% on that, Denise! I do read those from time to time, just for fun, but my faith, with what happens, lies solely with the One who is forever constant also. ;)
