New Zodiac Signs 2011

New Zodiac Signs 2011, Do the solar eclipse and floods and snowstorms announce the rediscovery of the new sign of the zodiac: Ophiuchus, the serpent-holder? His usurpation of the 19 days between Scorpio and Sagittarius Horoscope has changed for everyone – and perhaps change our personality too. I used to be cancer (and unpleasant) and now I’m Gemini – and both sides? Confused, yes.
But who exactly is Ophiuchus?
All signs of the zodiac previous dozen have roots in classical mythology – especially in the legend of how the 12 gods of Olympus has taken the form of various animals and creatures to flee the sulfur monster Typhon several armies that caused havoc and extraction of the mountains and others. (Only Zeus stood his ground and, gathering her courage and lightning, and even fly with these weapons of mass destruction and Typhon buried under a pile of rock, which burn up to date like a volcano, Etna.) The myth doesn ‘t bear a lot of verification – or math. Gemini is, for example, account for one or two? And if Zeus was good, so … something is missing…. And this god or goddess would have sought shelter in the form of Libra, a ladder?

Otherwise, the symbols have meaning only in terms of mnemonics – giving earthly form to the constellations that occupy the treadmill of stars that define the earth year. Allusions to myth help explain the meaning of each. Cancer, for instance, being perhaps a crustacean giant defeated by Heracles (Hercules, for those who prefer Latin), but also be a hard-shelled creature, offers a metaphor for the nature of every human being born under the sign of (is hiding in its shell, by extension, homebody, like I was comfortable going up now when I have to learn to be a Gemini.)
So what kind of creature is Ophiuchus? The pictures that emerged (from old engravings shortly after the time of Gutenberg, it seems) show a very muscular sort of person who has difficulty with a real anaconda in the sky. There are various myths attached to the constellation, most of them obscure, both are very revealing – if ominous. A third point that I came up with myself.
The first is that of Asklepios (Latin, Aesculapius, who has somehow become acceptable in English as Asclepius), which was, as the old Greek stories are often the offspring of a tragic game. His mother, impregnated by the god Apollo, has launched a flirtation with someone else. It is not good to cheat on any god – and certainly not one associated with the sun. The poor woman was burned and her baby ripped from her womb (Asklepios etymologically meaning to cut). The infant was given over to be raised by the centaur Chiron good and wise. He grew to be very wise himself can cure the sick and raise the dead. The serpent, already a symbol of wisdom and its goddess Athena, was combined with the skills of rejuvenation Asklepios “because it could be repeated, becoming” young “again, throwing his old skin. But fate and the gods did not like the idea of a human being with the ability to grant other people the gift of eternal life. Zeus then struck him dead with a thunderbolt. His father Apollo, however, has risen from the dead – and, possibly, Asklepios became the god of healing and medicine. Some early Christian writers went on to say that it was a foreshadowing of their own savior – perphaps propaganda against the cult of Asclepius, who was a powerful rival to the faith of the disciples of Jesus.
The other story is a magnificent piece of art associated with it: the n Laoco an ancient sculpture found in Rome and rebuilt by Michelangelo. It is in the Vatican Museum and shows the Trojan priest Laoco? N and his son attacked by two snakes. Why was Laoco? N then punished? Because he warned his countrymen not to leave Troy in their fortified citadel of giant wooden horse left by the Greeks. The goddess (it snakes) serpents Athena sent huge cover and kill the priest and his son. The Trojans have interpreted as a sign that it was good to let the gift horse without looking into its contents. The rest is, again, the tragedy.
Zeus asked, after being both male and female, who takes more pleasure in sex? Tiresias did not hesitate and said, “woman”. Hera was angry and struck the blind. Transgender, curious, brave enough to risk the wrath of Hera (Zeus which even feared) Tiresias, blind as he may have, is the embodiment of the most modern of Ophiuchus.
