What's your sign? Ophiuchus? WTF?

So apparently some astronomer in Minnesota has taken it upon himself to change the dates for all the zodiac signs. And add a new 13th sign.  He blames the movement of the sun and earth in relation to the stars over the past few millennia.  I just think he didn't like his horoscope.

The bad news is that your sign has probably changed.  The worse news is that mine is now Ophiuchus, which according to the internets is pronounced "o-few-cus".  It's hard to spell, hard to pronounce, and no one has ever heard of it.
On the bright side, this symbol looks like a Blue Oyster Cult album cover.  So that's cool.
Ophiuchus is also known as the serpent-bearer, with the common representation looking like this:
Yep. That's a dude with a huge snake between his legs. 
So I suppose it could be worse.  Before, I was a Sagittarius - the archer - which didn't mean much.  Now I'm a dude with a python in his pants.  Ladies, try to contain yourselves.
