Ophiuchus (pronounced oh-fee-you-cuss) in Greek meant "serpent-bearer", commonly represented as a man grasping the snake. it was formerly referred to as Serpentarius, a Latin word meaning the same as its current name.
the latest astrological rumor of the 13th zodiac sign being Ophiuchus started when astronomy professor (Parke Kunkle) talked to the newspaper n caused people to jump into an astrological identity chaos. people started to wonder if they would went to bed a Gemini n woke up a Taurus. expert astrologer (Rick Levine) said "Ophiuchus has nothing to do with Astrology. it has to do with the stars, not a sign, but a constellation. there are 4 seasons, therefore making it 12 zodiac signs, impossible for a 13th." few astrologers follow the constellation-based zodiac, but it was only by 1%. so there you go, listen to the experts, but don't believe everything until all the facts are checked. we may think we understand astrology but probably not thorough enough to truly understand it. for now, there will be no Ophiuchus zodiac sign for any of us.
