Have you heard of Ophiuchus? If not... don't feel alone. Probably out of 20 people only 1 person will know what/who Ophiuchus is.

There has been a hidden zodiac that is recently surfacing in our era of time. Again we have coming on the scene of human thought the rebirth of Ophiuchus. The 13th Zodiac. Ophiuchus can be seen as the governor of the 12 signs you all are already familiar with.

Ophiuchus [Oaf-ih-YOU-kus] spans 948 square degrees in area. It can be found northwest of the center of the Milky Way. It is situated near the constellations Aquila, Serpens and Hercules and opposite Orion. The southern part lies between Scorpius to the west and Sagittarius to the east. Ophiuchus contains the second closest star to Earth — Barnard's Star — about 6 light-years away. The red dwarf star is a magnitude 9.5, making it a challenge to find with the naked eye.

The position of Ophiuchus:

This is one of 13 constellations that both our sun and moon pass through during the year yet mysteriously, having originally been identified by Ptolemy, it does not feature in either the tropical or sidereal zodiacs that are used by astrologers today. . Babylonians gave the constellation the boot when trying to pick just 12 signs.

This constellation can be said to beat the center of both the divine cross in the heavens, formed by the galactic equator and the ecliptic, and the terrestrial mundane cross formed by the equinoxes.

Ophiuchus crosses the celestial equator just at the point where the center of the galaxy meets the celestial equator. It is this very gap in the area between Scorpio and Sagittarius known as the dark rift that the center of the Milky Way galaxy is located.

Before I go in depth with Ophiuchus lets stop and take a look at what 13 symbolizes in numerology.

The number 13 being seen everywhere even in fashion. The number 13 in numerology is a "karmic number and is the number of upheaval so that new ground can be broken. The number 13 has great power. If this power is used for selfish purposes, it will bring destruction of the self, and in turn, this will bring dis-ease and illnesses.

This number needs a soul mate, a "twin soul" , if you will.

Ophiuchus symbolizes a man with a beard who wrestles with "the serpent". His feet are on the ecliptic.

The constellation of Ophiuchus is the only sign of the Zodiac which is linked to a real man.

From what I have gathered I have traced this man all the way back to Egypt around the 27th century BCE, and his name was Imhotep (patterned after Enki).

The snake bearer seems dual in nature and can be explained by the appearance of a body dividing the snake constellation Serpens into two parts, Serpens Caput and Serpens Cauda.

Ophiuchus also hosts Barnard’s Star, which is the third closest star to our solar system.Ophiuchus, which spans on the birthday of November 29th, to December 17th ( 18 days).

Many of the same attributes of Imhotep is traced to Ophiuchus which can also be found in the Biblical Hebrew man Joseph, son of Jacob.

Imhotep is credited with many accomplishments including the knowledge and use of medicine. It is said of Imhotep that he brought the art of healing to mankind. The symbol of a serpent [or snake], which is still widely used today to represent the medical profession, was used to represent Imhotep.

Imhotep was also known as 'Aesclepius' to the ancient Greeks, but by any name the attributes are still all the same. Imhotep, i.e. the Hebrew Joseph, and Aesclepius were healers in the spiritual sense. The serpent represents suffering. The healer is then said to bring the serpent so it may draw out the suffering for all purpose of healing.

Two symbols have been proposed for Ophiuchus, one based on the Rod of Asclepius ( ⚕) and the other in general use in Japanese astrology ( ⛎). Since Ophiuchus is identified with Asclepius, the Rod of Asclepius is often used as a symbol for Ophiuchus.

Aka.. Serpentarius

Serpentarius was/is the bringer of the pit, kind of like a galactic trash, which was used at the end of the cycles (of the zodiac). This serpent was said to purge away the evil souls into the fires of the pit.

In Greek mythology Ophiuchus was able to heal the world and make its people immortal but Zeus struck him down with a thunderbolt in jealousy. Then Zeus placed him in the heavens and came him a large snake to hold on to and control. Because Ophiuchus is situated at the dark rift or galactic equator, the snake is seen to represent the milky way.

Again, Ophiuchus is identified with the healer Asclepius, the son of Apollo, who was able to bring the dead back to life. Realizing his power, Hades convinced Zeus to kill Asclepius with a lightning bolt, and he was placed into the stars as a constellation after his death.

Some associate Ophiuchus as the Phoenix rising. Phoenix (Ophiuchus) rising from the Fire(Sun)into the Galactic ...

The Prophecy of Hermes Trismegistus

Do you not know, Asclepius, that Egypt is an image of heaven, or, to speak more exactly, in Egypt all the operations of the powers which rule and work in heaven have been transferred to earth below? Nay, it should rather be said that the whole Kosmos dwells in this our land as in its sanctuary. And yet, since it is fitting that wise men should have knowledge of all events before they come to pass, you must not be left in ignorance of this: there will come a time when it will be seen that in vain have the Egyptians honoured the deity with heartfelt piety and assiduous service; and all our holy worship will be found bootless and ineffectual. For the gods will return from earth to heaven. Egypt will be forsaken, and the land which was once the home of religion will be left desolate, bereft of the presence of its deities. This land and region will be filled with foreigners; not only will men neglect the service of the gods, but ... ; and Egypt will be occupied by Scythians or Indians or by some such race from the barbarian countries thereabout. In that day will our most holy land, this land of shrines and temples, be filled with funerals and corpses. To thee, most holy Nile, I cry, to thee I foretell that which shall be; swollen with torrents of blood, thou wilt rise to the level of thy banks, and thy sacred waves will be not only stained, but utterly fouled with gore. Do you weep at this, Asclepius? There is worse to come; Egypt herself will have yet more to suffer; she will fall into a far more piteous plight, and will be infected with yet more, grievous plagues; and this land, which once was holy, a land which loved the gods, and wherein alone, in reward for her devotion, the gods deigned to sojourn upon earth, a land which was the teacher of mankind in holiness and piety, this land will go beyond all in cruel deeds. The dead will far outnumber the living; and the survivors will be known for Egyptians by their tongue alone, but in their actions they will seem to be men of another

Medusa as Ophiuchus

Medusa is also said to be Ophiuchus blaming the Romans for eradicating female leadership. Thirteen is a number associated with women, "witches" regarded as sinister and evil. Thirteen is only unlucky to men; it's the number of the female goddess. Thirteen is part of a lunar matriarchal society that presaged the Roman empire, and was ruled by the Moon. The Romans replaced the 13-month lunar calendar of 28 days with one day left over, with their Solar 12-month calendar, with odd numbered days and 1/4 of a day left. Like history books, the calendars are written by the victors. The Romans destroyed the female power base by fire and steel, and Ptolemy likewise enslaved her astrology in service of Roman aggression and its bloody atrocities. Modern Tropical astrology is the spawn of the apologists and propagandists of male tyranny, and its use is actually a genuflection to an ideology that represents the worst of human nature. One glance from her could turn a man to stone. Her assassination was a forgone conclusion, no mercy was to be shown to the woman who demanded equality with men, who would resist his fire and steel with the greater power of mother nature and her irresistible and irrefutable importance in the human

This whole astrological-philosophical diversion claims that there is a 13th constellation that we must take note of, which none of us do, so there you have it. We are duped! Look to the stars and constellation to reflect your path; and include the extra constellation of stars if your dare.

This is an interesting topic as I often wonder if the ancients took into account Earth's own wobble or if they mistook that as everything else moving in comparison to us.

Lots to find on this subject.... Prophecy like you wouldn't believe!!

At the opposite sides of the heavens to Orion(Osiris) is Ophiuchus the 13th sign of the zodiac. On the other side of the Golden Gate/Gate of God,lies the Silver Gate(the Gate of man). The silver Gate(the Gate of man)is between Taurus/Het Heru(pleaides)and Gemini. Revelations 1:16-"Christ(Orion)held seven stars in his hand".

Those seven stars are the Pleiades(the leg of the Bull/Taurus).Orion(Osiris) points the way to the Pleiades. Osiris(Orion) in Ancient Egypt/kemet is depicted holding Aldebaran,(the brightest star in the Taurus constellation)in his hand. Aldebaran in Hebrew means "the follower" as this star follows the Pleiades' 7 stars. The Pleiades in ancient times was known as the mother Sun.To enter the gate of man/earth,means death to your God(real) self.

There are 33 degrees in freemasonry to become a master. Testament of Solomon--"Thirty-three cosmic ruler,fix thy house,crescent horn moon,follow seven lamps,seven stars,Pleiades stars.Hear O King,Light 7 lamps in a row,thou wilt firmly fix thy house. "I am the worst demon of all, and our STARS are in heaven. Seven stars humble in sheen, and all together. And we are called as it were goddesses."The "7 demons" are the 7 stars of the Pleiades.The "Demons" were code words for "stars". Break down the word master into two,you get Ma/ster which means "mother star".Break down the word mason in two you get Ma/sun=mother sun.In the topical/season based zodiac of the west,in the wheel of 360 degrees if you start from '0' degrees Aries and count to 3 degrees in Taurus,you have 33 degrees.The moon is exalted at 3 degrees in Taurus.T

he 33 degrees in masonry also correspond to the 33 degree measurement by astronomers of the rising sacred cross of the Orions(Osiris) belt as well as the 33 vertibret in your spinal column(tree of life). On the other side of this gate lies the Golden Gate(the gate of God) which is located between Scorpio and Sagittarius(were Ophiuchus is located).When the sun aligns with the galactic center were Ophiuchus is located,this will complete the union between "Mother"(silver)and "Father(Gold). Some say Isis is actually Ophiuchus,because its Ophiuchus that sits directly 180 degrees across from Orion(Osiris).The Greeks being patriarchal,sometimes turned feminine deities into masculine.

Ophiuchus as Isis

"the Greeks simply hijacked a much older myth and retooled it to their own needs. In many ways, the Greek myth of Orion and Asclepius seems to be a ragged echo of the tale of Osiris and Isis, filtered through millennia and the politics of place and time".

Osiris was sometimes known as saturn,the God of kings,government and law.Freemasons await for the return of Saturn to rule over the Golden age once again.Before the great flood,saturn was regarded as the ruler of all earthly kings and patriarchs,and ruled the kingom of Atlantis "I am Isis,Queen of this country.I was introduced by Mercury.No one can destroy the laws which i have established.I am the eldest daughter of Saturn,most ancient of the Gods."(egyptian text) Saturn/capricorn ties into the golden gate of God and man. Throughout the ancient world, the Middle East and Egypt, because of the brilliantly clear desert night skys, the stars and the constellations carried deep significance, both for the wandering tribes such as those following Moses and the great civilizations and city-states such as Babylonia, Sumeria, and Egypt. Ophiuchus the Serpent Bearer is one of those desert-sky constellations. Most people pretty much know what the Zodiac is --- the constellations on the plane of the ecliptic through which the sun passes in the course of a year --- and what their "Sun Sign" is in relation to the Zodiac (i.e., Sagittarius, Taurus, etc.). What most people don't know is that there are actually thirteen Sun Signs, NOT twelve. According to the official modern constellation boundaries that astronomers use today, the sun passes through thirteen constellations, not twelve. The Greeks chose to remove one of the original thirteen constellations from the Zodiac in order to accomplish their desire to have each sign rule for an even 30º of sky, so they selected Ophiuchus to be eliminated. It can only be because of his origins in Egypt as one of their most powerful dieties, on par with Osiris and Thoth, all of whom answered only to Ra. Mysteriously enough, just like Obeah is secret, hidden, and unknown, the "thirteenth constellation" of the Zodiac, Ophiuchus the Serpent Bearer is secret, hidden, and unknown. About one person in twenty is an "Ophiuchus," and they don't even know it..

The image of the serpent was tremendously significant in the ancient world. Societies and scriptures of the Near East simultaneously attributed two highly symbolic roles to serpents. One role connected serpents to the heavens by having them represent deity, creative powers, and healing. The other linked them with the underworld and associated them with evil, harm, and destructive influences. We who live in modern times have no difficulty appreciating this double symbol because, in fact, this duality persists in our own day. The symbol of the healing serpent appears on the physician's caduceus, while a person of disreputable actions—especially treachery—is sometimes referred to as "a snake."

Exactly, however, in the ancient times they did take the 13th constellation into consideration, but this knowledge was erased from existence due to later perceived intellect (or not so much so).

Egyptian Evidence

From the Pyramid Texts:

The god Atum was the snake or serpent that continued to live season after season. In a fascinating dialogue with Osiris, the Egyptian god of the netherworld and of final judgment, Atum predicts the destruction of the world he created and his own reversion back to the form of a serpent or snake. Another primeval deity mentioned in the Pyramid Texts is Amun, one of whose two primary representations was that of the snake named Kematef (meaning "he who has completed his time").[5] After the Eleventh Dynasty (the Egyptian Middle Kingdom), Amun appeared as the god of the capital of Thebes and eventually merged with the sun god to be become known as Amun-Re, the supreme state god in the New Kingdom (c. 1550–1090 B.C.). At Karnak it was believed that Amun-Re and his divine consort, the goddess Mut, gave birth to a son named Khonsu. Mut is also symbolized as a snake and is called "Mut the resplendent serpent."[6] Thus the divine triad or family, the preeminent unit of social organization among the gods and humans according to the Egyptian worldview, was linked to the image of the serpent. When corn was harvested and grapes pressed into wine, an offering was made to the harvest goddess, Thermuthis, who was depicted as either a snake or a woman with a serpent's head.[7] Geb, the god of the earth and "the father of the gods," is referred to as "the father of snakes" that emerge from the earth

Veneration of serpents or snakes in predynastic Egypt and during the Old Kingdom coalesced around the most important serpent-goddess of Lower Egypt: Wadjet. Wadjet (meaning "green one") was the general Egyptian term for cobra, and in that form she became the symbol of royalty and unification.

In opposition to all that was good in ancient Egypt, the most preeminent of all the demons, evil gods, or evil powers was Apophis, who was represented by a snake.

The Egyptian Book of the Dead fairly crawls with other serpent demons as well, sometimes winged or rearing up, occasionally even standing on legs and spitting fire.

In Mesopotamia

The Sumerian god of spring vegetation, Tammuz, was linked to the image of the snake. Both he and his mother bore the title "mother-great-serpent of Heaven," that is, the serpent deity who emanated from the heaven god Anu.[16] The snake was also the sacred symbol of the god Ningizzida, who was called in Sumerian mythology "the companion of Tammuz.
NINGIZZIDA: a Mesopotamian deity of the underworld. His name in Sumerian is translated as lord of the good tree. Also, Ningizzida was a fertility god. Originally depicted as a serpent with a human head, Ningizzida became known as a magical god of healing.

Ningishzida is the earliest known symbol of snakes twining (some say in copulation) around an axial rod. It predates the Caduceus of Hermes, the Rod of Asclepius and the staff of Moses by more than a thousand years.

Nidaba, was shown in representations with serpents (springing from her shoulders).
King Gudea of the city-state Lagash, placed a representation of a serpent deity at the entrance of one of his temples around 2050 B.C., presumably to act as a guardian of the sacred edifice where life is renewed. Fourteen hundred years later, King Nebuchadnezzar II, ruler of the Neo-Babylonian empire (605–562 B.C.), dedicated the monumental Ishtar Gate of Babylon to the god Marduk with the following inscription:
(Nebuchadnezzar, King of Babylon, son of) Nabopolassar (King of Babylon am I). The gate of Nana (Ishtar . . . I built) with (blue) enamelled bricks . . . for Marduk my lord. Lusty bulls of bronze and mighty figures of serpents I placed at their thresholds . . . Marduk, exalted lord . . . eternal life . . . give as a gift.

Tiamat, who is herself a female serpent (frequently referred to as a dragon).

Phoenician and Greek

Sidonian depictions of Eshmun also parallel ancient Syrian representations of their god of healing, Shadrapa, whose image is that of the serpent. Like the Greek deity Asclepius, Eshmun was the god of medicine whose symbol was a serpent. A Sidonian coin shows Eshmun leaning on a staff with a serpent entwined about it.

The most important Minoan deity was the mother earth goddess of the city-state Knossos, or Cnossus, the capital of Cretan civilization. She is similar to fertility goddesses worshiped elsewhere in ancient Mediterranean and Near Eastern cultures. On Crete she was usually depicted in small statue form as a woman holding a snake in each hand, with a bird perched on top of her head.

The Agathos Daimon was often depicted as a winged serpent and regarded as a good spirit.

People view the 13th constellation, but it is somehow not acknowledged, or coveted as a universal truth.

posted on Oct, 10 2016 @ 07:43 PM
Serpent worship in early Christian art...Yahweh is the serpent that curls around the prophets. His head is at the lower right at the bottom of his column or pillar.


The Mayan "lord of life"and King of Tula being `consumed' by a `serpent. Even the most famous example of the winged serpent motif outside of (but related to) the Near East, namely, the Aztec god Quetzalcoatl ("feathered serpent"), is impressive because that god was revered as the founder of priestly wisdom (almost as if the Aztecs were somehow familiar with Jesus' statement to be "wise as serpents and harmless as doves" [Matthew 10:16]). Quetzalcoatl's high priests even bore the title "Prince of Serpents."

Modern Day News of Ophiuchus

In 1998 V2487 Oph went nova and is supposed to happen again 18 years later.. this year. There is an alert out right now for sky gazers and astronomers.

Alert Notice 556: Monitoring of V2487 Oph requested October 4, 2016: Dr. Ashley Pagnotta (Louisiana State University) has requested AAVSO assistance in monitoring the recurrent nova V2487 Oph in order to catch and observe its next outburst. Dr. Pagnotta writes: "V2487 Oph is a recurrent nova that was first seen to erupt in 1998. During a search of the Harvard College Observatory plate archives for previous eruptions, we found one that was recorded in 1900. Based on the speed and magnitude of the eruption, and the coverage of the archival plates and other detection sources, we calculated how often V2487 Oph would have to erupt for us to have actually detected one random outburst on the plates, which is about once every 18-20 years. (For more, see As we are now 18 years from the previous (1998) eruption, we request regular AAVSO observations to help us detect the next eruption of V2487 Oph.

And... from another source

A partially exploding star, known as a nova, has recovered more quickly than expected, say scientists who have analysed new data from the ESA's XMM-Newton X-ray satellite. Nova explosions are not completely destructive phenomena. In fact, after an explosion occurs, the star recovers and starts shining again. Until now, astronomers have not known how long this process takes. In this case, however, the exploding star recovered in less than three years. This is surprising, given the fact that the original explosion released about 100 000 times the energy given out by our Sun in a single year.

What is so interesting is there are 18 yrs of Christs life missing in the Bible.

From the age of 12 to the age of 30 is missing. The Sun actually "leaves the zodiac" for 18 days while it is transiting (crossing) the astrological sign of Scorpio (the third water sign). During this 18 day period the Sun is outside of the boundaries of the traditional zodiac and enters the constellation of Ophiuchus (The Serpent Bearer).

Out of all I have read this article baffles me the most. It's from the South China Morning Post.

Lonely planet: Sole survivor of stellar apocalypse in distant solar system shocks scientists, but earth still probably doomed Chinese scientists surprised to find star still hanging on near a white dwarf - an imploded corollary of our sun - suggesting that life can exist in parts of the universe where this was previously deemed impossible. But as it is much further away from its sun than we are to ours, earth’s expected fate remains the same.

hinese astronomers have discovered the first planet known to have survived the violent death of a sun-like star, and this could help paint a clearer picture of what the earth and our solar system may look like in five billion years’ time. In the past, nobody expected to see planets still in close orbit to a dying star, also known as a white dwarf. As a star nears the end of its life, its hydrogen fuel stores become depleted and it puffs up to the size of a red giant some 200 times its original size. In the process, it swallows up nearby planets or shreds them with violent beams. The red giant then collapses due to strong gravitational pull and ends up as a white dwarf - an extremely dense remnant of its former self with a mass equivalent to that of the sun, while the star itself shrinks to about the size of the earth. The planet being studied by the Chinese team was found near a white dwarf in a binary star system in the Ophiuchus constellation, according to their paper published in this month’s edition of the Astrophysical Journal. The planet has over seven times the mass of Jupiter and is at least 300 light years from the earth.

Copying and pasting information is only going to confuse and cause misinterpretation. You need to provide in depth commentary if you wish to hit people upside the head and expect them to understand.

Earth's precession was historically called the precession of the equinoxes, because the equinoxes moved westward along the ecliptic relative to the fixed stars, opposite to the yearly motion of the Sun along the ecliptic.

Which means, this has been known for quite a while.

To whom and for what benefit is of greater importance.

If prophecy comes true the rebirth will not come without pain and suffering.

I would still like to talk about the other material I laid out regarding V2487 Oph because I want to know the possibilities. I have read papers on it.... but not telling me anything other than they are looking for a progenitor. Frankly, the papers are hard to understand.

The 18 years kind of hit me off guard. I also want to note Edgar Cayce made like "Jesus" would return on Earth in the year 1998. This was seen in 1998 making it come on the scene again this year.

SnF I agree with you, they are all the same prophecy. When the prophecy comes true there will be pain and suffering.

Will it be spiritual?
Will it be physical?

I hope we act before it gets any more physical then it already has. How much blood needs to be spilled until we have had enough?

Can we wake up before we destroy ourselves in WW3?

Only one question besides taking all this in...

Where is our ATS Ophiiuchus on this one?! Surely he must have a thing or three to add?
