Newest member of the Zodiac - Ophiuchus

13th Zodiac sign, Ophiuchus,  Nov. 29-Dec. 17
Wow. Where do I start? First, the correct pronunciation is OFF-ee-YOO-kuss, and apparently, we have all been reading the wrong horoscope for the last 2000 years. The Babylonian's only wanted 12 signs in a year, and judging from the picture I can see why.

Which leads to my next point. How happy am I that I wasn't born between Nov. 29th and Dec. 17th?! I wouldn't be too comfortable being represented by a clothing optional serpent tamer (although some would say that's pretty accurate). Those less shallow than me will be thrilled to find their new sign represents healing, enlightenment, medicine and higher education. It has also been associated with black holes, but lets not dwell on the negative.

For those of you who are interested in knowing which horoscope to read from now on, I have found the updated dates of the astrological signs.

Capricorn: Jan. 20-Feb. 16
Aquarius: Feb. 16-March 11
Pisces: March 11-April 18
Aries: April 18-May 13
Taurus: May 13-June 21
Gemini: June 21-July 20
Cancer: July 20-Aug. 10
Leo: Aug. 10-Sept. 16
Virgo: Sept. 16-Oct. 30
Libra: Oct. 30-Nov. 23
Scorpio: Nov. 23-29
Ophiuchus: Nov. 29-Dec. 17
Sagittarius: Dec. 17-Jan. 20

This whole thing begs the question, where would you be if you had been reading the right horoscope all along? My answer, in the same place you are now, we are all exactly where we are supposed to be.
