OPHIUCHUS: Nov. 29th-Dec-17th
(the serpent holder)
THE 13th SIGN
From the constellation, Ophiuchus
Theory is the 13th sign of the zodiac associates with an actual person from the 27th Century BCF, where in ancient Egypt lived a man known as Imhotep who was also known by the ancient Greeks as Aesclepius.
The constellation, Ophiuchus is also known as Serpentarius, the Serpent Holder.
Imhoteps grew into his knowledge of medicine and possessed exemplary healing abilities. His attributes are also found in the Biblical Hebrew man Joseph, son of Jacob.
He had a wide range of knowledge with medicines which grew after he seen a snake bring herbs to an injured snake. The serpent or snake symbol which symbolizes and still represents itself with medicinal meanings even here in our modern day times is the icon representing Ophiuchus. Imhoteps was stuck down by Zues for healing mortals and then Zues placed him inside the constellations to give recognition to his good work with healing.

You are an accomplished builder and achiever
You come from a large family group
The Zodiac list includes Ophiuchus, a formation the ancient Babylonians discarded because they wanted 12 star signs, not 13. That's yet another example of how astrologers cherry-pick and ignore astronomical observations, Rao said.
"It's crazy," Rao said. "Really, they have their own set of rules."
Nevertheless, maybe some good will come of the astrology-astronomy media blitz, Kunkle said.
"At the very least, I hope it makes people go out and actually look at the sky," Kunkle said. "That's the fun part."
Nicely done, Victoria. He is also biblical Jacob wrestling all night with God, Heracles, a one-eyed cyclops fighting his brother in The Odyssey, Gilgamesh tustling with Enkidu (a half-brother), Achilles (whose heel is about to be pierced from 'below' the sea sky meridian) and any number of other sky myths. So glad to hear that he has been restored in the zodiac and feminine calendar. Thank you for reinstating him.
