Alignment the dates of many zodiac signs
have changed, according to NBC. In addition, there may be a 13th Zodiac
Kunkle says that as the Earth and Sun slowly move the signs
gradually change, as expected.
The change didn?t happen over night either. The 12 signs were designated to
different periods of the year almost 3,000 years ago, when astrology began,
and since then the Earth?s position in relation to the sun has changed.
While the sign many people were born under may now be different, it
shouldn?t affect horoscope readings, according to NBC.

New Zodiac Sign Ophiuchus
The Caduceus [left] depicts two entwined snakes set upon
a rod, and was the ancient symbol of Hermes, the Greek god of merchants.
Today, it is a common and popular symbol of the medical and allied
Asclepius (an ancient greek physician who was deified as the god of
medicine) is traditionally depicted as a bearded man wearing a robe that
leaves his chest uncovered and holding a staff with his sacred single
serpent coiled around it symbolizing renewal of youth as the serpent
casts off its skin. The single serpent staff also appears on a Sumerian
vase of c. 2000 B.C. representing the healing god Ningishita, the
prototype of the Greek Asklepios.
The probable medical origin of the single serpent around a rod: In
ancient times infection by parasitic worms was common. The filarial worm
Dracunculus medinensis aka "the fiery serpent", aka "the dragon of
Medina" aka "the guinea worm" crawled around the victim's body, just
under the skin. Physicians treated this infection by cutting a slit in
the patient's skin, just in front of the worm's path. As the worm
crawled out the cut, the physician carefully wound the pest around a
stick until the entire animal had been removed. It is believed that
because this type of infection was so common, physicians advertised
their services by displaying a sign with the worm on a stick.
