The 13th Zodiac - Ophiuchus

So we have a new horoscope. For those who haven't noticed, it's a "new" star sign that mankind has been guilty for missing out - the serpent holder 13th zodiac sign, "Ophiuchus". 
Yes, that wavy line is a serpent.

The zodiac is supposedly based on the Greek figure known as Aesclepius, a man with vast knowledge in medicine. Kind of like the medieval version of Dr. Meredith Grey and Dr. Doug Ross put together. Sure sounds really Greek.

You can hear those who justify their behaviour through their star sign freaking out now.
I'm not a Virgo anymore? It wasn't a feminine thing to burn bras??
But seriously, no one should be fussed about it. Do you really need the constellations to tell you who you can and can't get along with? Do you need it to tell you if you're going to have a good or bad day?

We all know you obviously are what you choose to be, and you sure as heck can choose if you want to believe something that's over thousands of year old. Apparently, the stars shift every 3000 years, and the change only affects those born after 2009 - although Ophiuchus was actually discovered the same time as the other 12 but was discarded by ancient Babylon. How is that suppose to make a difference now? We don't know. Experts are still debating on whether the change is applicable.

But for the fun of it... here's a list of the new 13 horoscopes:

Aries: Apr 19 - May 14
Taurus: May 14 - Jun 21
Gemini: Jun 21 - Jul 21
Cancer: Jul 21 - Aug 11
Leo: Aug 11 - Sept 17
Virgo: Sept 17 - Oct 31
Libra: Oct 31 - Nov 30
Scorpio: Nov 21 - Nov 30
Ophiuchus: Nov 30 - Dec 18
Sagittarius: Dec 18 - Jan 21
Capricorn: Jan 21 - Feb 17
Aquarius: Feb 17 - Mar 12
Pisces: Mar 12 - Apr 19

Or if it's too complicated to shape-shift your personality, stick with the Chinese Horoscope for now. We doubt a new animal will pop up anytime soon. Although, if it were to happen we think this reptile would be cool.
