Nasa have unveiled a new thirteenth star sign called 'Ophiuchus' - meaning 'serpent-bearer' - and some Zodiac dates have now 'changed'.

People born between November 29 and December 17 apparently now fall under a thirteenth star sign called 'Ophiuchus'.

According to a report by The Sun, Nasa have claimed that there are now 13 - rather than 12 - Zodiac signs, and the dates of these have now shifted to make room.

Nasa said: "The line from Earth through the sun points to Virgo for 45 days, but it points to Scorpius for only seven days.

"To make a tidy match with their 12-month calendar, the Babylonians ignored the fact the sun actually moves through 13 constellations, not 12.

"Then they assigned each of those constellations equal amounts of time.

"Besides the 12 familiar constellations of the zodiac, the sun is also aligned with Ophiuchus for about 18 days each year."
