It all started with a resurfaced story that NASA “discovered” a 13th zodiac sign — Ophiuchus, or the serpent-bearer. Anyone born between November 29th and December 17th would no longer be a Scorpio or a Sagittarius, but an Ophiuchus.
The name derives from the Greek “Ὀφιοῦχος” which translates to serpent bearer which is why the serpent is represented by the constellation Serpens. This sign squeezes its way in between Scorpio and Sagittarius territory, the personality traits of Ophiuchus are believed to be sort of a hybrid of the two. Like Scorpio, Ophiuchans are believed to be intense, with a powerful presence and a little bit of a jealous streak, but like Sagittarius, they’re also thought to be deeply passionate, energetic, and naturally blessed with good luck.
