CARSON CITY, NV — The Astrology Association of America has released an official profile for the new zodiac sign Ophiuchus.

OPHIUCHUS (Nov. 29th – Dec. 17th)

If your birthday falls between November 29th and December 17th and you’ve always felt a disconnect with the qualities and characterizations of the Sagittarius sign (formerly November 23rd to December 22nd), the following new profile will probably come as a long-awaited, much-welcomed relief.

Your zodiac identity crisis is over!

Ophiuchus Profile, based on the astrological charts that I reviewed with the AAA:


*The Sun is in Ophiuchus from November 29 to December 17.

* Ophiuchus is the thirteenth of the twelve constellations of the Zodiac, or the forgotten constellation.

* The Sun spends more time with the stars of Ophiuchus (19 days) than it does in nearby Scorpius (6 days), however the stars aren’t as bright or visible.

* Ophiuchus is also known as the snake charmer or serpent holder.

* Ophiuchus is the only sign of the Zodiac which is based on a real person. This man, Imhotep, lived in ancient Egypt around the 27th century BCE. Historians have speculated for centuries that Imhotep brought the art of healing to mankind.

* The serpent or snake symbol is still used to symbolize the medical profession and Imhotep.
