Astrology of the 13 Signs of the Zodiac Ophiuchus:
The New Sign of the Zodiac Circle
By Vasilis Kanatas
CONTROVERSIAL RELEASE DARES TO LOOK BEYOND THE FALLACIES OF TRADITIONAL ASTROLOGY
̶ INTRODUCES UNIQUE NEW ASTROLOGICAL THEORY
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.

A natural and astrological variable that affects the temperament of every individual, is the number of sunspots at the time of everyone's birth. It is an important parameter in the personality of the person and we all understand that there is big difference between a child born when the Earth is bombarded by solar wind, and a child born when the Sun is in a recession of its activities. The "Astrology of the 13 signs of the Zodiac" contains a theory linking the intensity of the solar wind (and the number of sunspots) with the temper and temperament of each individual.
The table that gives as the ratio and the connection between the number of Sunspots and the characteristics they give to every man, is found in an autonomous chapter of the book ""Astrology of the 13 Signs of the Zodiac" by Vasilis Kanatas" and is an integral part of the New astrological theory.

Astrology of the Thirteen Signs of the Zodiac is a book which explains a new theory in this ancient field of study.It was prompted by the fact that Western Astrology has outlived its lifetime and its elements have been rendered obsolete by its cousin, the science of Astronomy.The precession of the equinoxes, that is, the movement of the point of intersection of the celestial equator by the ecliptic by 50.2” (seconds of a degree) each year, prompts corresponding discrepancies in the predictions of astrology, which move further and further away from reality with each passing year.Since 100 A.D., when Claudius Ptolemy wrote his Tetrabiblos, the zodiac constellations have moved approximately 29.2° across the sky, enough to ensure that the predictions of Western Astrology are completely misguided.
The Astrology of the 13 Signs of the Zodiac takes into account all available modern scientific information regarding the actual positions of the 13 Zodiac constellations and offers Astrology a way out.The only reasonable path now available to it is the acceptance of the 13 Signs of the Zodiac and the new theory, on the basis of which the Moon and the Sun are given their rightful place.In 13 Zodiac Sign Astrology, the Ascendant is represented by the position of the Moon, the celestial body which truly affects our lives, and not by some distant constellation.Lastly, sunspots, which have a well-documented impact on the Earth and its people, take on an important role in the New Astrology.
Only the Astrology of the 13 Signs of the Zodiac is firmly grounded in the sciences, and particularly in Astronomy.It recognizes the influence that the planets have over our lives through their interactions with the Sun and the disturbances they cause in its magnetic field, and the effect this has on the magnetic field of the Earth itself.

Astrology of the 13 Signs of the Zodiac offers a new theory of Western Astrology designed to make it compatible with the science of Astronomy. (The new sign is Ophiuchus; it comes between Scorpio and Sagittarius). Chapters outline a perspective of the Moon - a celestial body that is much closer to us and has a greater effect on our daily lives than faraway constellations - as the Ascendant. Sunspots also play a greater role in this new astrological method, designed to correct imbalances such as those that come simply from the constellations slowly shifting position in the sky ever since ancient times. A wealth of black-and-white illustrations complement this methodical walkthrough of a new way for gleaning metaphysical wisdom from the night sky.

The "Astrology of the 13 signs of the Zodiac"was a pleasant reading and an eye-opener. It explains,in layman's terms, the fallacies of traditional Astrology and adds a new perspective in Astrological readings by taking into account the influence of sun spots.A brilliant idea and one which makes sense as it is based on Astronomy.
The book ,in my opinion,is easy to read, has the right length and with the use of diagrams and pictures gets the main message across without getting into many technical details that might confuse the average reader.All in all an innovative approach to Astrology and a pleasant reading for those that want to discover its scientific roots.

I was given this book as a gift. Very impressive! I wasn't an avid follower of astrology, just here and there, but I found your book enlightening. The science is explained in a way that even I understood what was going on. Surely it's obvious there's a 13th star sign. Are you coming out with any more books on this subject? I'll keep my eyes open.
