The 13 Zodiacs

There are people who have this unbendable belief toward Western Zodiac Signs. From love compatibilities to colors, some people are just too inclined to what their signs tell them. These people have their personal reasons why they read their daily horoscope readings and some even have tattoos of their own zodiac sign.

And speaking of zodiacs, I'm pretty sure you've heard about the recently added sign to the list. Ophiuchus, which is also known as "The Serpent Bearer", is now recognized as the 13th zodiac. According to reports, astronomers have already discovered this constellation a long time ago even if it's not yet visible in our naked eyes at night. But due to the natural and astronomical phenomena that involve the Earth and Sun's alignment, Ophiuchus is now a visible constellation that will be a part of the Earth's zodiac. And because of this, the dates under the existing signs were adjusted, affecting the astrological ciphers of some people. However, according to The Daily Horoscope website, Ophiuchus is not the 13th sign so those people who are too concerned about this change shouldn't panic (so I guess you can save the money that you're planning to spend for your tattoo erasure). You can read the full article HERE.

Anyway, inspired by these astronomical and astrological hullaballoo, I've collected some photos that somehow reflect the 13 zodiac signs (Yes. I decided to include Ophiuchus even if the previous stated article didn't recognize the sign as part of the zodiac) done by well-known fashion and portrait photographers for prominent magazines and designers. Take note: The pictures weren't done for the zodiacs; their looks just made me conclude that they suit the 13 signs.

Have a glimpse and enjoy!
