Hi, Everyone,

The Web site has grown tremendously, with 12 million readers every month. You'll find folks who are weather watchers, gardening enthusiasts, stargazers, and more. Find advice, get answers to questions, and share your experiences.

Find the Almanac here, too!

Finally, a big THANK YOU to all those who have participated in and looked after the forums over the years!

Constellation Ophiucus

Ophiuchus, the Snake Charmer
is the thirteenth of the twelve constellations of the Zodiac. It is the forgotten constellation, perhaps, for the Sun actually spends more time before the stars of Ophiuchus (19 days) than it does in neighboring Scorpius (6 days). (copied from http://www.eastbayastro.org/articles/lore/ophiuchus.htm

There doesn't seem to be any tasks assigned ... so it seems it's a Gardeners Rest Day.


I correct myself, here's an interesting website that has some good things to say:


"The constellation of Ophiuchus is the only sign of the Zodiac which is linked to a real man." etc.



* interpreter of dreams, vivid premonitions,
* attracts good luck and fruitful blessings,
* serpent holder, lofty ideals,
* a seeker of peace and harmony,
* doctor of medicine or science, natural-pathic,
* adds, increases, joins, or gathers together
* poetical, inventive nature, expanding qualities,
* seeks higher education and wisdom,

SO it could be a day of rest AND healing body and spirit.
