OPHIUCHUS, PURTATORUL DE SARPE

Jan Ridpath’ STAR TALES

Ophiuchus (pronounced off-ee-YOO-cuss) represents a man with a snake coiled around his waist. He holds the head of the snake in his left hand and its tail in his right hand. The snake is represented by the constellation Serpens.

Ophiuchus holds a huge snake, Serpens, in both hands as shown in the Atlas Coelestis of John Flamsteed. Serpens is unique in being divided into two halves.
 The Greeks identified him as Asclepius, the god of medicine. Asclepius was (more…)

Woody Allen – un Ophiuchus clarinetist

Woody Allen
De la Wikipedia, enciclopedia liberă Woody Allen

 Biografia

Woody Allen (1 decembrie, 1935), New York, numele iniţial Allen Stewart Konigsberg, numele legal Heywood Allen, este unul dintre cei mai importanţi regizori de film şi comedieni americani, de naţionalitate evreu.

Filmul său preferat din copilărie este Double Indemnity, în regia lui Billy Wilder. În primul an de şcoală a fost înscris într-o clasă avansată, dat fiind bunul coeficient de inteligenţă. Va urî şcoala din prima zi, devenind un rebel. Nu va face temele pentru acasă, fiind nepoliticos cu profesorii şi indisciplinat. Surprinzător, era foarte bun în sport (baschet, fotbal, fotbal american, stickball) şi mereu între primii aleşi a juca în echipele din cartier. Îi plăcea boxul şi se antrena serios timp de mai multe luni, până când părinţii i-au cerut să abandoneze. În orice caz, sportul si filmul nu au fost singurele sale interese. A devenit obsedat de (more…)

Ophiuchus [the '13th sign'] – Dates: 30th November to 17th December

   

 

Definition: [Sun Signs - Solar Zodiac] Ophiuchus, the sign of the Serpent Bearer, is the 10th sign of the Real Solar Zodiac.

However, although it lies on the Ecliptic it is not one of the signs of either the Tropical Zodiac of standard Western Astrology, or the Sidereal Zodiac of standard Vedic astrology.

This problem is one of the most contentious issues in modern astrology. I know the subject of Ophiuchus causes us lots of grief as astrologers. But it’s up there in the heavens. It exists. We can’t ignore it.

The Thirteenth Sign? Ophiuchus is often mistakenly called the ‘thirteenth sign of the zodiac’ because the sign is thought of as an additional sign to the the twelve Tropical or Sidereal signs.

 

 Ophiuchus the Sun sign. The curved line marked with degree signs is the Ecliptic. The Ecliptic, the Sun’s path through the heavens as seen from Earth, runs through Ophiuchus from about 245 to 265° away from the Vernal Equinox. This means that the Sun can be seen against the stars of Ophiuchus from 30th November to 17th December

In fact, Ophiuchus is a Sun-sign in the Real Solar Zodiac, i.e. the Sun can be seen against the stars of Ophiuchus between 30th November and 17th December each year. [The dates of the cusps move a little from one year to the next, so sometimes they are quoted as 1st December to 18th December.] Aquarius, the Water Carrier, is the actual 13th, and last, sign of the Real Solar Zodiac.

Ophiuchus in the Planetary Zodiac: As Ophiuchus is a Sun-sign it is also a member of the Planetary Zodiac and the Lunar Zodiac, i.e. as well as the Sun, the planets and the Moon can frequently be seen against the stars of Ophiuchus, from the view point of the Earth.

The planet Pluto could be found in Ophiuchus until the end of 2003, after which it passed into Serpens Cauda, the Serpent’s Tail. The Centaur object, the minor planetoid Chiron, was visible against the stars of Ophiuchus until November 2001, after which it passed over the border into Sagittarius. Venus and Mercury can be found in Ophiuchus for a time each year. Shown right is an example of a star chart for Pluto in Ophiuchus in June 1999.

So why isn’t Ophiucus in the Commonly-Used Western Zodiac? Ophiuchus is an Ancient Greek constellation. The Serpent Bearer is one of the original Ptolemy constellations, appearing in Al Magest Star Catalogue [c 130 - 170 AD]. He also appears on the Farnese Globe, a Roman copy of a circa 2nd century BC depiction of Atlas holding the Celestial Sphere above his head. So why isn’t Ophiuchus a member of the standard astrological zodiac – the Tropical Zodiac?

OPHIUCHUS – A TREISPREZECEA ZODIE, INTRE SCORPION SI SAGETATOR

Ophiuchus - AL TREISPEZECELEA SEMN ZODIACALUn al 13-lea semn zodiacal, aparut din cauza unor mici devieri de la traiectoria Pamantului in miscarea sa de rotatie in jurul Soarelui, a fost descoperit de un astronom din Australia, transmite Reuters.

Pamantul nu se invarte in jurul propriei axe ca un balon perfect sferic, ci mai degraba ca un titirez, pentru ca atractiile manifestate de Soare si Luna asupra Terrei nu sunt uniforme. “Pe scurt, Soarele a deviat putin de la traiectoria pe care o avea in urma cu 3.000 de ani, cand a luat nastere astrologia”, a declarat John Shobbrook, director al observatorului Siding Spring al Universitatii Nationale din Australia.

Semnul zodiacal se numeste Ophiuchus sau Purtatorul de Serpi si cade in perioada 30 noiembrie – 18 decembrie, intre zodia Scorpionului si cea a Sagetatorului.

Semnul, reprezentat de niste serpi incolaciti utilizati de medici, a fost remarcat de Ptolemeu, parintele clasic al astronomiei, care l-a inscris printre alte 48 de semne in catalogul sau de astronomie “Almagest”. Shobbrok a calculat ca in prezent exista o deviere de 30 de grade intre Soare si Pamant ceea ce inseamna ca aceasta constelatie poate avea statut de semn zodiacal si poate fi inclusa in banda zodiacala inventata de babilonieni in urma cu 3000 de ani, informeaza Shobbrook.

OphiuchusIn mitologie, Ophiuchus era reprezentat de un batran cu mantie sprijinind un sarpe. Se spune ca Ophiuchus il reprezinta pe Esculap, un vindecator din antichitate, iar sarpele indica faptul ca veninul poate vindeca sau ucide. Se spune ca oamenii nascuti in aceasta zodie au capacitati de vindecare, pot interpreta visele, cauta pacea, au talent poetic si atrag norocul.

Ophiuchus – Wikipedia

Ophiuchus (Ὀφιοῦχος IPA: /ˌɒfiːˈjuːkəs/) is a large constellation located around the celestial equator. Its name is Greek for ‘snake-holder’, and it is commonly represented as a man grasping the snake that is represented by the constellation Serpens. Ophiuchus was one of the 48 constellations listed by the 1st century astronomer Ptolemy, and it remains one of the 88 modern constellations. It was formerly referred to as Serpentarius (/ˌsɚpənˈtɛəriəs/), a Latin word meaning the same is its current name.

Ophiuchus is a zodiacal constellation (meaning that the Sun passes through it during the course of the year), but unlike the other twelve, it is not counted as an astrological sign by astrologers. As of 2008, the sun passes through Ophiuchus between November 30th and December 17th.
