NEW YORK – Due to the movement of the Earth’s axis, there is a new Zodiac sign. That means you have a new sign!

We’ve all been there. First dates, blind dates, set-ups by mutual friends. And if you’re anything like me, the first thing you always ask before venturing out into the cold, dark night of dating is: what’s his sign?

Well last evening, which was indeed chilly, I went on a lovely date with my first Ophiuchus, the just revealed 13th sign of the zodiac. And let me tell you, he was hotter than a snake’s ass in a wagon rut!  Not to mention, we’re totally compatible. Where have the Ophiuchuses been all my life?

And where did this new sign come from, you logically wonder. Well, it turns out it’s been there all along.

According to Minnesota Planetarium Society board member Parke Kunkle, it’s always been in the stars. Star signs were created 2,000 years ago by tracking the sun’s location in the sky each month. Over time, the moon’s gravitational pull has slowly moved the Earth in its axis, creating about a one-month bump in the stars’ alignment, reports the Minnesota Star Tribune.

So what does it all mean? What’s my  sign now? I’m a Libra, and even with the new calendar will I stay a Libra. I’ve typically tried to stick with Gemini or Aquarian men as advised. But this new sign, the Ophiuchus, blows both of those prime compatibility matches out of the water. So if you’re a Libra like me, you may find a streak of lusty luck with your own Ophi gent.

But watch out! The Ophinuchus is the serpent holder sign. Sexy, strong, and a little scary, right? Just be smart if you’re looking for love, the serpent holder man is also sly, fast, and venomous. Thus, he’s not compatible with ladies of every sign.

We Libras, as well as the rest of the water signs, can probably handle it. Capricorns have a distinct resilient energy that would pair well with the Ophi’s cunning intensity. Same goes for the Cancers, but their need for safety may pose some relationship issues with the serpent holder’s risk-taking tendencies.
