Who knew? There is a 13th sign of the zodiac called the Ophiuchus. If it is making you re-evaluate, take heart. Ophiuchus traits are pretty awesome!

Ophiuchus traits

If you are asking what the Ophiuchus traits are, you aren’t alone! I will admit that I am not sure whether I believe in the whole zodiac thing or not. I will also admit that, almost like someone’s name, when someone tells you their “sign,” it typically rings true and makes you go “well yeah, of course.”

So, I was shocked to find that while I had my proverbial head in the clouds, not only did someone decide Pluto was no longer a planet, but that there is a 13th zodiac sign introduced.

What is the Ophiuchus sign?

Somewhere resting between the Scorpion and the Sagittarius is a “new sign” called the Ophiuchus. It encompasses people from November 29th to December 17th. Unbeknown to them, the millions of people who were born between these dates, now have to re-evaluate who they are and question what traits they are supposed to have. I am glad it isn’t me.

Being a Pisces, I would be very thrown to find out that I wasn’t who I was destined to be after all.

Not only is the 13th sign odd because the lucky number isn’t 13, but rather 12, it is the only sign that doesn’t have a polar opposite. Making it even more mysterious, it is fashioned after a real historical person by the name Imhotep who was alive in BCE during the 27th century in Egypt.

The good news is that if you are someone who has to re-think the whole zodiac sign thing, you will be happily surprised. The Ophiuchus traits are passionate, loving, and amazing, so fear not. It isn’t that the Scorpio or Sagittarius signs aren’t incredible on their own, but the Ophiuchus is pretty outstanding!
