To anyone who reads this journal, I would advise you to read my first journal posting on the new thirteenth zodiac, Ophiuchus. This journal is a follow up conversation that relates to that journal, and in some sense continues it. Here is a link to it in case you have not read it yet. https://inkbunny.net/journalview.php?id=24908
I really feel that Ophiuchus is part of a different zodiac. If the sun and moon really are running directly through it on the sky (which is how the zodiac is discerned), then that means they aren't running through hardily any of the other constellations we see as the traditional zodiac. This would mean that we need to remake the entire zodiac (which it might still have 12 signs in the end). The only problem is that thanks to science there has been a major separation from astrology in attempt to kill it. It is my thought that in the past, astrology and astronomy were the same profession. There is evidence in Egypt that they knew of stars that could only be seen with a high power telescope; something science has said they didn't have the technology for. But the fact that they plotted out star coordinates that included these high magnitude stars (over a magnitude of 7 is too dim to see with the eye) would mean that not only were there methods of what we call astrology being used (for divination) but these were coupled with what we would call astronomy (location and calculation of stellar coordinates). There are similarities of this mimicked in other ancient civilizations were it is known they had a key understanding of the cosmos through their stone structures that were astronomically aligned (some of which are aligned with stars and planets that could have only lined up at the reverse tilt of the earth's axis). If our current society, based around science, were to stop persecuting things like astrology and learn to work together then there may be a chance to save astrology and help its wise teachings continue. It is my thought that if something as great as astrology were lost, we would be losing perhaps the most valuable link to past human civilization that we have ever had.
