“13-sign Ophiuchus
Astronomy Meets Astrology
The Zodiac has 13, not 12, signs! The constellation of the goddess Ophiuchus, the snake handler, can clearly be seen emerging from Scorpio and leaping up to Vega. Astronomers recognize her. She is one of the eponymous (original) signs on the sun’s ecliptic, based on the 28 day, 13-month lunar calendar. Each of the 13 signs has a different size share of the 360 degree ecliptic, their natural portions. Ptolemy and the Romans kicked her out of the Zodiac in 118 ACE. Learn more about how old myths can have new meaning when you use the true degrees. This info and the actual positions of the Sun, Moon and the planets are available on my website.”
