|Ophiuchus(off-ee-yoo-kuhs) is the thirteenth Sun sign that has been known since ancient times by various names to many cultures across the world, but left out of mainstream astrology.
Being the thirteenth sign, Ophiuchus has no sign in opposition within the Zodiac, and can be associated with the Awakening and Ascension. The belief of the Mayans was that at the end of time, man would rouse the serpent god Kukulcan (also known as Quetzalcoatl to the Aztecs) to rescue the world from destruction allowing the nine races of man to move forward.
As we reach for our highest potential as Spiritual and Physical beings, Ophiuchus is now being observed and included. Like all signs, it has positive and negative aspects - the qualities that move us forward and qualities that hinder us. Potentially, Ophiuchus is a sign that we can all to move into, living at this time where many people all over the world have achieved, and are achieving, awakening, enlightenment, and all forms of higher spiritual learning.
A powerful will and emotions, charisma, intelligence, sex appeal, innate leadership abilities, physical and mental strength are positive traits found in Ophiuchans. Once focused, they can work without stopping for days without needing rest and they have the capacity to live within very stressful conditions.
In the negative Ophiuchans can seem a bit fanatical or obsessed about a beloved topic, are quite dramatic, have overly strong emotional reactions to situations causing fallouts in their relationships. Self nurturing is a last priority.
