Ophiuchus

There's a new sign in town, and its name is Ophiuchus.
Astrologists have updated zodiac signs and the 13th is associated with a real person, according to www.love-astrology.com.
"In the 27th Century BCE in Ancient Egypt lived a man known as Imhotep. Imhotep was known as 'Aesclepius' by the Ancient Greeks, however the attributes are the same under either name," reports the website.
According to Time Magazine, 31% of Americans believe in astrology.
"The constellation Ophiuchus represents a man wrestling a serpent, dividing the snake's body in two parts. It is the only sign of the zodiac linked to real men, sharing traits with Imhotep, a 27th century BCE Egyptian doctor, and biblical Joseph," reports Time. "Like Imhotep, Ophiuchus is considered a healer of men and a doctor of medicine or science. He seeks higher education and enlightenment. He is expected to achieve a high position in life."
Here are the New Dates, reported by the Chicago Tribune.
