The 13th Zodiac sign called Ophiuchus has been revealed by astronomer Parke Kunkle at NBC news. Kunkle explained that the change in the Sun, Earth and stars‘s alignment in the last 3000 years has affected the zodiac sign of an individual. The zodiac sign of persons born a long time ago will have a different sign now. Astronomers believe that Ophiuchus, Greek word meaning ‘serpent-bearer’, falls between Scorpio and Sagittarius.

The stars that represent Ophiuchus can be found near the celestial equator that typically portray a man struggling against a snake. Ophiuchus is believe to have represented Greek mythology characters that include Asclepius the healer, Trojan priest Laocoon, who was killed by sea serpents, and Phorbas, who rescued the Rhodeans from the plague of serpents.

The zodiac sign Ophiuchus is found in the Sidereal Zodiac of the Jyotish or Hindu astrologers.
