Hey, The 13th zodiac sign was created when the Chilean earthquake happend because the earth shifted off its axis. So, someone came up with the 13th sign to fit. Thats what I heard..
 Quoting: Epicbiscuit

No. The Chilean earthquake, like all earthquakes, affected the earth's axis by an amount far too small to detect, a matter of milliarcseconds. It has nothing to do with Ophiuchus. The line of the ecliptic passes through the borders of 13 constellations, that's not new. The borders of the constellations were formally established by the IAU in 1930 (though even this 18th century star map shows the ecliptic passing through the feet of the figure of Ophiuchus: [link to en.wikipedia.org] ). When those borders were established, it became official in astronomy that the ecliptic passed through 13 constellations, not 12. News stories about the "13th zodiac sign" go back to at least the 80's.
