Okay, okay, we know Ophiuchus isn’t actually the 13th zodiac sign, but we are also assigning zodiac signs to fictional districts from a dystopian book trilogy and film franchise. Suspend your doubts for a moment and hear what we have to say about the controversial Serpent Bearer and how it relates to District 12, the home of Katniss Everdeen. Since Ophiuchus isn’t actually a zodiac sign, but a constellation, it doesn’t have a modality, element, or ruling planet. According to Bustle, Ophiuchus falls within the start of Sagittarius’ window, sharing traits with both Sagittarius and Scorpio.
Like District 12’s most famous inhabitant, Katniss Everdeen, those born under Ophiuchus have a big presence and are passionate (traits common to both Scorpio and Sagittarius). They are opinionated, always speaking their mind. Without a modality, element, or ruling planet, how can we even approach the characteristics of those born under Ophiuchus? If we look at the constellation and its mythology, the Serpent Bearer is associated with Asclepius, the god of medicine and doctors. Asclepius was a healer who could bring people back from the dead. This is why he was banished to the stars by none other than Hades himself.
Those born under Ophiuchus are healers as symbolized by two snakes climbing a staff, like the Mercury carries. This is the symbol for pharmacies in the U.S. and The World Health Organization. Although District 12 is linked with coal, because of their mine, they become increasingly associated with healers, as Katniss’ mom and sister Prue embody. If you’re not buying into all this Ophiuchus nonsense, don’t worry. Sagittarians are also associated with healers and known for carrying a bow.
