#NASA says they’ve done the math, and they’ve recently introduced a new zodiac sign. They’ve thrown ages-old astrology charts totally out of whack with the announcement of #Ophiuchus . What used to be utilized by die-hard #astrology enthusiasts to plot and plan their lives could now be thought of as heresy.
If ever the #NewAge advice to “check the stars” before taking action, were counterbalanced with scientific reason, which supposes heavenly bodies have no impact on our lives whatsoever, we’d see we are at odds – these seemingly disparate entities have now entered a new territory of antipathy, or have they?
NASA says they didn’t change any astrological signs. They “just did the math,” and found that there is an additional zodiac sign between #Sagittarius and #Scorpio , called the “serpent bearer,” because it appears in the middle of the Serpens constellation.
It’s interesting to note that Ophiuchus — located near the celestial equator and one of the 48 constellations listed by the 2nd-century astronomer Ptolemy — is just one of thousands of possible constellations that could have been “added” to our astrological influences, however, the sign, which wasn’t previously added because the sun barely touches it through its movement in space, is named after a #Greek God that handles serpents.
This isn’t exactly new-found knowledge that NASA is divulging either, since the constellation was found more than 3,000 years ago. So why has NASA chosen to upset astrology charts now with a serpent-bearing addition to the 12 signs?
To find an answer we can look at the mythology behind the sign.
Ophiuchus represented the god #Apollo to the Greeks. He “handled” the snake that guarded the #OracleofDelphi at her temple. The Oracle of Delphi was the prophetic priestess #Pythia , known for her ESP powers. 🖐🏾More in comments👇🏾
