I am sure that it is going to blow your mind like how it blew my mind. It is no longer 12 zodiac signs, it is 13! Nasa has come up with a whole new sign — Ophiuchus, the snake bearer, for people born between November 29 and December 17.

All of us know that Astrological signs are determined by the sun’s position in relation to a constellation on your day of birth — but the night sky nowadays has moved around since the Babylonians first invented the 12 signs of the zodiac more than 2,500 years ago! Then they assigned each of those constellations equal amounts of time. To make a tidy match with their 12-month calendar, the Babylonians ignored the fact the sun actually moves through 13 constellations, not 12. Besides the 12 familiar constellations of the zodiac, the sun is also aligned with Ophiuchus for about 18 days each year. The constellation, which comes from Greek words meaning “serpent bearing” is commonly represented by a man wrestling a snake. Unsurprisingly, Ophiuchus shares many of the same characteristics as Sagittarius, and people with its sign are described as healers and light-bearers.

Now let's see which is your zodiac signs:

Aries: April 18 to May 13

Taurus: May 13 to June 21

Gemini: June 21 to July 20

Cancer: July 20 to Aug. 10

Leo: Aug. 10 to Sept. 16

Virgo: Sept. 16 to Oct. 30

Libra: Oct. 30 to Nov. 23

Scorpio: Nov. 23 to Nov. 29

Ophiuchus: Nov. 29 to Dec. 17

Sagittarius: Dec. 17 to Jan. 20
