Ophiuchus the Serpent Bearer also known as Aesculapius (pronunciation), the first doctor of medicine, has the reputation of being the "thirteenth constellation" of the zodiac. Each year from November 30 to December 17 the Sun journeys through the southern regions of this constellation.
Ophiuchus is large, including Serpens Caput (the snakes head) and Serpens Cauda (the snakes tail) in his hands. This heavenly Medicine Man is located above, on and actually crosses the ecliptic. Scorpius lies below the feet of this Serpent Bearer and below the ecliptic. Ophiuchus is often shown with his left foot on the heart of the Scorpion and his right foot above the stinger. Images 1, 2
Each year, as November ends and December begins, the Sun spends a substantial amount of time transiting the legs of Ophiuchus, hence the claim it is the "thirteenth constellation" of the zodiac, located between Scorpius and Sagittarius.

Reflections and Summary
The legs of Ophiuchus stand in the burning ground of Scorpius the Scorpion. Fiery forces from Antares, the Scorpion's red heart star, ensure growth evolution and change. The stinger of Scorpius guarantees we stay awake and on the divine path of transformation.
Ophiuchus is the exemplar of one who has attained self-mastery, illumination and evolutionary freedom. He is the overseer of the Scorpion, and his left hand firmly lifts and holds the neck and head of the serpent toward the heavenly Northern Crown (Corona Borealis).
Sol, the burning heart of our solar system, along with the fires of Scorpius are initiating, inspiring, impressing and bio-illuminating us with the self-mastery of Ophiuchus. These heavenly beings are bound to ignite the life-changing kundalini serpent fire within humanity.
Listen. What are these great celestial beings telling you? What must die? What must heal? What must be changed and created personally, nationally and globally to serve the evolution of consciousness and humanity's spiritual development?
These great beings are teaching us who we really are, Homo Luminous.
I offer the following links for further pondering, if so desired.
As our Sun transits this area of the sky, November 30 through December 17, take time each day to feel its warm rays touching you.
Know that these solar rays are a medicinal elixir imbued with the healing energies and mastery of Ophiuchus the Medicine Man, the evolutionary influences of a new lunar cycle, Antares and Scorpius the Scorpion.
Make time to listen while absorbing the warm rays of the Sun. This type of sunbathing is bound to give you a new outlook on Life!
