You get up in the morning to the warm winter Sun and suddenly the earth beneath your feet has shifted, well, in this case literally ;) . The astronomers from the Minnesota Planetarium Society found that because of the moon’s gravitational pull on Earth, the alignment of the stars was pushed by about a month. I had read about it some time back but had read it as an ancient science which believed in a different zodiac system. The one that comprises another 13th sign where the Sun spends only 19 days. Ancient Babylonians had 13 constellations, but wanted only 12, so they threw out Ophiuchus, the snake holder.
The change in the zodiac sign seems to have the rocked the world. Most people seem to take the news with a pinch of salt. Some find consolation by that argument that this applies only to people after 2009/2010. I have had friends who could forget your name but not your Sun sign. For most people not reading the daily horoscope is not an option. My roomie’s FB status says “Proud to be an Aquarian…..!!!! i will live and die as an aqua ….!”
Most people find it difficult to associate themselves with the new sign. Mostly comparing themselves to a person in the new Sun sign whom they hate and say “I am not that, am I!!!” Well, if it is any consolation at least they can compare themselves with somebody, I am going to be in the new Sun sign Ophiuchus. No references at all :( plus no body seems to know how to pronounce it. So while others are going to be referred to as the Saggi, the Virgo(they are the safest ones no much change there with the new system), the Cancerian, I will be the “she who must not be named” 8O And the sign seems to be represented by a serpent. I feel like a person who has been unfairly put in the Slytherin house.

Anyway reading my new characters make me feel better. Am I ready to shed my Saggi attitude, don’t know yet but my new life doesn’t look bad either.
The constellation Ophiuchus represents a man wrestling a serpent, dividing the snake’s body in two parts. It is the only sign of the zodiac linked to real men, sharing traits with Imhotep, a 27th century BCE Egyptian doctor, and biblical Joseph. Like Imhotep, Ophiuchus is considered a healer of men and a doctor of medicine or science. He seeks higher education and enlightenment. He is expected to achieve a high position in life. Like Joseph, he is an interpreter of dreams and vivid premonitions. He is envied by his peers and favored by his father and authority figures.
The dominant characters traits are:
* Many people are envious of the Ophiuchan as he/she progresses well throughout life.
* A seeker of wisdom and knowledge
* A flamboyant dressing sense, favouring bright colours.
* Authority looks upon him/her well
* Would make a great architect or builder
* Number 12 is the lucky number.
* Will have a big family but will leave home at an early age
Don’t know how things will go. All that I know is this is one occurrence that the planets had not predicted at all ;)
