What is Ophiuchus?
Ophiuchus is Greek for “serpent bearer” and is commonly referred to with a man clutching a snake. In Greek mythology, Ophiuchus is represented by Asclepius, son of Apollo, a man skilled at resurrecting the dead. Hades later convinced Zeus to kill Ophiuchus with a lightening bolt. He was then placed among the stars as a constellation after his death.
Ophiuchus now represents people who were born between Nov. 29 and Dec. 17 – estimated to be around 31 percent of the U.S. population – and is also referred to as Serpentarius, according to World News Insight.
According to Greek Mythology, those in the Ophiuchus sign are blessed as:
- Interpreters of dreams who attracts luck and blessings (awesome.)
- Inventers with good leadership qualities who can rise to a managerial role.
- People who will rise in fame and always reach for the stars.
- Holders of a generally-high position in life.
So, sounds like falling under Ophiuchus isn’t so bad after all. In fact, we’re kinda jealous.
