You may have heard about a 13th Zodiac Sign called Ophiuchus, the Serpent Bearer (between Scorpio and Sagittarius).

Stories of the "13th Zodiac sign" do the rounds every couple of years and I get lots of emails and messages from people freaking out that their zodiac sign is wrong, and their whole life is a lie!

How could astrologers have missed something so huge?

Is there truth to this rumour and what does this mean for the credibility of astrology as an ancient craft practiced by modern astrologers in this current day and age?


To Create Your Chart with Opiuchus on

  • Go to Extended Chart Selection
  • In Chart drawing style select Astrodienst Fixed Stars in Sections
  • Select the Sidereal button and choose Krishnamurti (0°59) from the drop-down in the Options for Zodiacs and houses menu
  • Select Click here to show chart

Below is my sidereal natal chart which displays Ophiuchus and gives me a Taurus Ascendant, Sagittarius Sun and Libra Moon (instead of my Gemini Ascendant, Capricorn Sun and Scorpio Moon using the tropical Zodiac!)


To change your settings back ensure the Chart type is Natal Chart Wheel, and the Zodiac selected is Tropical.
