The Ophiuchus or Serpentarius or the 13th Zodiac Sign topic went viral over the internet when Parke Kunkle revealed, in a Star Tribune interview, that current signs are not applicable anymore. The presence of Ophiuchus in between Scorpio and Sagittarius has put the other Zodiac signs in different ranges and confusion on the veracity of having the 13th Zodiac sign.

Parke Kunkle, an astronomer and director of the Minnesota Planetarium Society in Minneapolis, explained that the Earth‘s wobbly orbit has dis-aligned it from the stars. This in turn, was the reason for the birth of the Ophiuchus or the 13th Zodiac sign, according to Kunkle. However, Kunkle was contradicted by Astrology expert and horoscope writer Rick Levine who does not believe that Ophiuchus is the 13th Zodiac sign. For Levine, Ophiuchus is just a constellation and should not be included in the list of Zodiac signs.

According to international sites, Zodiac signs were based by the ancient Babylonians on the constellation the sun was in, on the day a person was born. However, because of the moon’s gravitational pull, the Earth was shifted on its axis. Kunkle explained that the shifting of the Earth has been calculated and it created a one-month shift in the alignment of the stars.

Here is the new list of zodiac signs including the 13th Zodiac Sign Ophiuchus with their corresponding dates:

  • Capricorn: Jan. 19 – Feb. 15
  • Aquarius: Feb. 16 – March 11
  • Pisces: March 12- April 18
  • Aries: April 19- May 13
  • Taurus: May 14- June 19
