New Zodiac Sign Dates: Ophiuchus The 13th Sign?
The Internet is amazing when it comes to disseminating news quickly, but it's just as amazing when it spreads disinformation. Fact 1 as claimed by NASA: There is a thirteenth constellation that crosses the ecliptic, which is the celestial highway the planets travel along on their orbits around the Sun.
The NASA site explains that the Babylonians divided the ecliptic into 12 equal parts, "like cutting a pizza into 12 equal slices. They go on to explain that there were actually 13, not 12 constellations in the zodiac, and that the Babylonians left out the sign Ophiuchus as a matter of convenience. Therefore, NASA claims that the Sun -- which appears to move through the 12 signs each year from Earth's point of view -- is aligned with Ophiuchus for nearly three weeks each year, and people born at that time are born under the sign of Ophiuchus.

Furthermore, NASA notes that the constellations in the zodiac are not equal in size, and that the Sun passes through Scorpio in 7 days but takes 45 days to transit Virgo. Fact 2 as claimed by NASA: 3, years after the Babylonians created the 12 signs of the zodiac, the sky has shifted, changing most people's sign.

NASA is, in fact, referring to a well-known concept that is referred to as "the Precession of the Equinox. However, astrologers have known for millennia that this precession refers to the very slow backward wobble of the Earth on its tilted axis. This wobble causes the Sun's apparent alignment with the constellations to slip backward one degree every 72 years, making one complete cycle in 26, years.
Ophiuchus is the missing 13th constellation avoided by the Babylonians so that the zodiac would fit their pre-existing month calendar. The zodiac constellations are also different shapes and sizes, meaning the Sun spends varying amounts of time in each.
For instance, the line extending from the Earth through the Sun towards Virgo lasts around 45 days. There is also the issue of precession and the Sun no longer moving through the sky in the same way it did 3, years ago.
As the Earth barrels around the Sun, the planet wobbles on its orbit as a result of the gravitational attraction between the Moon and the equatorial bulge. As a result, the zodiac constellations have moved their positions to be approximately one month out of synch with your daily horoscopes. This is believed to have esoteric power and influence over our lives and daily routines. Someone born under the sign of Aries most likely was born under the sign of Pisces and so on.
