Astrology of the 13 Signs of the Zodiac Ophiuchus:
The New Sign of the Zodiac Circle
By Vasilis Kanatas



We have all seen horoscopes of traditional astrology fall woefully short. Most of them will say ten different things in order to get one right. Yet, is it possible that astrology itself isn’t inaccurate? Could astrologers be using wrong zodiac sign, the wrong planets and the wrong ascendants?
Physicist Vasilis Kanatas, author of the new book Astrology of the 13 Signs of the Zodiac Ophiuchus: The New Sign of the Zodiac Circle, says there is a way to put astrological predictions on a solid footing by creating a more valid foundation for astrology using the discoveries of astronomy and by introducing a new zodiac constellation.
“Today’s astrology has outlived its lifetime and its elements have been rendered obsolete by its cousin, the science of astronomy,” says Kanatas. “My work takes into account all available modern scientific information regarding the current actual positions of the 13 Zodiac constellations – the 12 old signs plus Ophiuchus.”
Astrology of the 13 Signs of the Zodiac proves that a very tiny annual movement of the axis of the Earth called “Precession of the Equinoxes” prompts corresponding discrepancies in the predictions of astrology, which move further and further away from reality with each passing year. That same inaccuracy with regard to position applies not only to the other planets of our solar system, but also to the sun and moon. By extension, the constellations of Zodiac are also in different positions from those assigned to them by Western Astrology, and a new zodiac constellation, Ophiuchus has been identified in the path of the Sun on the ecliptic. With this shift also comes a change to most people’s zodiac sign and a corresponding much more accurate horoscope.
Astrology of the 13 Signs of the Zodiac, firmly grounded in the sciences, recognizes the influence that the planets have over our lives and examines:

The fundamentals of Astrology: Past to Present
Equatorial movement and its discrepancies in the predictions of Astrology
Ophiuchus and the new Zodiac
What the changing of your Zodiac sign indicates
The vital importance of the Sun, the Moon and Astrology’s new variable: Sunspots
Construction of a horoscope under the 13 signs of the Zodiac
By marrying together only those elements of the past that can be supported by today’s science, Astrology of the 13 Signs of the Zodiac looks beyond the quaint notions of the past to help people learn to live with a new connection of astrology and astronomy.

Vasilis Kanatas was born in Amfissa, part of the Municipality of Delphi. He is a physicist and wrote his dissertation in Astronomy & Uranography entitled: "Concerning Constellations". He is an amateur astronomer and member of the Amateur Astronomy Association "Achyrostrata" (named for an ancient word for our galaxy used by local people), based in the Delphi Municipality. He speaks English, French, German and some Italian and currently works in computer programming, software and social networking. Astrology of the 13 Signs of the Zodiac: Ophiuchus: The New Sign of the Zodiac Circle is his first book.
