The struggle will last forever, since they wage it on level terms with equal powers". Later in his poem, Manilius describes the astrological influence of Ophiuchus, when the constellation is in its rising phase, as one which offers affinity with snakes and protection from poisons, saying "he renders the forms of snakes innocuous to those born under him.
They will receive snakes into the folds of their flowing robes, and will exchange kisses with these poisonous monsters and suffer no harm". Based on the IAU constellation boundaries , suggestions that "there are really 13 astrological signs" because "the Sun is in the sign of Ophiuchus" between November 30 and December 18 have been published since at least the s. In January , a statement by Parke Kunkle of the Minnesota Planetarium Society repeating the idea of "the 13th zodiac sign Ophiuchus" made some headlines in the popular press.

However, a phenomenon called precession has altered the position of the constellations we see today and has resulted in a shift of the zodiac constellations. The first day of spring in the Northern Hemisphere was once marked by the zero point of the Zodiac. Astronomers call this the vernal equinox and it occurs as the ecliptic and celestial equator intersect on approximately March Around B.
Unbeknownst to the ancient astrologers, Earth continually wobbles around its axis in a 25,year cycle. This wobble — called precession — is caused by the gravitational attraction of the moon on Earth's equatorial bulge. Over the past two-and-a-half millennia, this wobble has caused the intersection point between the celestial equator and the ecliptic to move west along the ecliptic by 36 degrees, or almost exactly one-tenth of the way around, to the border of Pisces and Aquarius.
This means that the signs have slipped one-tenth — or almost one whole month — of the way around the sky to the west, relative to the stars beyond. For instance, those born between March 21 and April 19 consider themselves to be Aries.
