Ophiuchus aka Serpentarius
The serpent-holder; seeker of wisdom, lucky … 11/29 – 12/17
The argument has existed for thousands of years, but with the strength of Facebook and Twitter, it has finally reached the masses. Minnesota-based astronomer and professor Paul Kunkle claims the existence of a 13th Zodiac sign. Technically he’s right.
Here is the newly proposed schedule:
The zodiac is a group of constellations that lie within the path of the Sun across the celestial sphere over the course of a year. The Sun technically touches the tip of Orphiuchus, but just barely.
Other astronomers and astrologists are split. South Florida’s self-proclaimed ‘master astrologer’ Jeffrey Brock says its not true. Miami astrologer Ron Archer and Puerto Rican astrologer Walter Mercado say it’s legit. That’s three against one by our count.
The word zodiac comes from Latin via the Greek words ‘zodiakos kuklos’ which means ‘circle of animals.’ And that’s why your sign is associated with an animal.
