The 13TH Sign of the Zodiac: 2012′s Missing Link

I am reprinting this info for about the 13th sign of the zodiac because as we move through the shift that our planet, Earth is now going through we will see how this zodiac sign fits into the opening up of our consciousness into the higher dimensions.

There is actually a 13Th zodiac sign called Ophiuchus (of-ee-yoo-kuh-s). It is believed that Nostradmus used the constellation of Ophiuchus when making his astrological predictions. Keep in mind that Nostradmus was not only a seer and an astrologer; he was also a physician making the use of this 13Th sign, very pertinent for him since this sign is greatly related to healing. Ophiuchus is one of the 88 known constellations and was also one of the 48 listed by Ptolemy. It is a large constellation located northwest of the center of the Milky Way. Ophiuchus is symbolized by the Snake Charmer or Serpent Wrestler. The Sun only spends 19 days in this sign of short duration. It falls between Scorpio and Sagittarius, the natural 8th and 9th house of the zodiac, respectively. Early cultures based their yearly calendar on the 13 lunar cycles, each containing 28 days. But Julius Caesar changed it. He created our present Julian Calendar, consisting of 12 months, therefore removing the 13th month and its corresponding astrological sign.

Ophiuchus is depicted as a man handling a serpent, his body dividing the large snake into two parts, giving way to the symbol used today as an Asclepius – the medical staff. The sign of Ophiuchus is fashioned after the original serpent holder, Enki, a Sumerian god associated with water, crafts, intelligence, and creation. Some astrologers believe the planetoid Chiron, which is connected with healing in Greek mythology, is the ruler of this sign of a short duration. The constellation of Ophiuchus is the only sign of the Zodiac which is linked to a real man. This man, named Imhotep (patterned after Enki), lived in ancient Egypt around the 27th Century BCE. Imhotep is credited with many accomplishments, including the knowledge and use of medicine.

So what does this 13th sign have to do with 2012? The year 2012 is associated with bringing us to the center of the Milky Way Galaxy. We are now moving beyond the kind of body for which the human being was originally designed, out of the human experience and into a different level of consciousness where we will experience a tremendous transformation as souls. The new vibrations from the cosmos will activate additional DNA that we are programmed with and will give you access to the secrets and mysteries of who you are and what your purpose is along with access to the fourth dimension above the Earth’s three-dimensional existence. Our DNA has been associated with the symbol of the snake, dragon, or serpent. Ouroboros is an ancient alchemy symbol depicting a snake or dragon (DNA) swallowing its own tail, constantly creating itself and forming a circle. In some representations, the serpent is shown as half light and half dark, similar to the symbols used for Yin and Yang, which shows the dual nature of all things such as positive and negative, male and female.

The 12 around 1 pattern (12 = 1 + 2 =3), or third dimension, is physical reality based on linear time so the soul can experience the feelings of emotions. We mark time in cycles. We find 12 around 1 on a clock, calendar, zodiac wheel, alchemy wheel, wheel of time, and karma. Could the sign of Ophiuchus, which falls strategically between the zodiac’s natural 8th house of sex, death, and regeneration, and the natural 9th house of the higher mind and spirituality, be the linking sign for the knowledge we need to upgrade our DNA to advance into the next level of consciousness? The soul lessons might be for us to realize that through death there is rebirth.

The symbolism of 13 is rooted in several cultures and religions. Number 13 has a Christian association with the Last Supper; twelve disciples and Christ formed a group of 13 to share the last meal. In ancient Greece, Zeus was counted as the 13th and most powerful god. The symbolism of 13 especially comes into play in the story of Osiris, the Egyptian god of life, death, and powerful cosmic energy who was murdered by his brother, Typhon, who sliced him into fourteen pieces. Isis, Osiris’s wife along with the help of Osiris’s sister, could only find 13 of the fourteen body parts (the fourteenth part being Osiris’s penis), which fell into the Nile and was eaten by a school of fish.

The story of Osiris symbolically implies that the meaning of number 13 is the precursor to completion. There are 13 moons in a calendar year. The Moon is associated with the Spiral of Life – birth, death, and rebirth – as she moves through the phases from dark to full. In the Tarot, the number 13 is represented by the Death card, which also means transition and change. Could our overlooked 13th sign of the zodiac become more significant beyond 2012? Will we be more advanced on a soul level to understand the vibrations from this constellation that revels in healing? Maybe this is the next phase of cosmic energy to be made available to us in the higher and more psychic dimension where we can clean out our karma closets and begin to heal ourselves and strive to be in harmony with the divine creative force of the universe.

  1. Lisa,

    I am surprised that you mention Ophiuchus in your work here. Very few Scientists or Astrologers recognize the significance of the Constellation Ophiuchus, being the constellation that truly points to the Galactic center.

    Dr. Paul LaViolette, in his books, was the first scientist I had read that referenced Ophiuchus in Astrology of the Babylonians and the Mayans. Yes, Scorpios stinger points close to the Galactic center as well as the Arrow of Sagittarius points a degree or so off of the true Galactic center. Only Ophiuchus points exactly at the Galactic center and was referenced by the Mayans and the Babylonian Astrologers.

    They of course had a different name for Ophiuchus; I believe the Mayans called it the Fire Bird or Phoenix as well as the Babylonians. LaViolette uses Ophiuchus to point us to the exact moment when his theory of a huge Galactic wave of Gamma Rays/X-rays and particles/energies from the center of the Galaxy will pass thru our Solar System. Affecting everything it passes through (LaViolette’s theory)!

    We still do not have a clue how this event will effect humans and/or our Sun. We can only wait and see. Optimistically it could cause an awakening of the collective consciousness in humanity for betterment of all. As you mention, it will definitely affect all of us as our resonant frequencies will change! Maybe dramatically changing us forever mentally and quite possibly changing our Solar system; effectively, changing the resonant frequencies of all the celestial bodies and affecting Astrology, until we pass out of the Galactic centers influence (LaViolette’s theory).

    Last, the number 12 which 1+2=3 analogy can also be interpreted as man = 1, woman = 2 hence the connection to the ancient Sumerian tablets of Enki, written about by Sitchin in his books. An ancient Philosophy in the numerology of Adamu and the first female, (or Isis and Osiris) then the 3 becomes the basis for the Trilogy mentioned in many ancient civilizations…i.e. Egyptian, Mayan, Babylonian and Hindu/Indo cultures. Would you agree with this analogy?

    Warm regards,

  2. On December 21, 2012 the constellation Ophiuchus will proceed the rising sun. Pictured by the Mayan as symbolism of the Phoenix (Ophiuchus) rising from the Fire(Sun)into the Galactic Center or the Mother's(Milky Way)Womb; according to Mayan Astrologers.(LaViolette's theory). Imagine how splendid this will be on that day, the Phoenix flying out of the rising Sun to the great Mothers Womb...i.e the birth of a new Age according to Mayan philosophy. Maybe December 21, 2012 is what the Mayans, the end of this Age and the Beginning or Birth of a New Age through Ophiuchus.

    warm regards,
