The zodiac as commonly known is wrong, there is now a 13th sign - Ophiuchus

The Zodiac that everyone is familiar with today is actually based upon the movement of the sun through the constellations of 2500 years ago. Today, due to shifts in the earth's rotation and orbit, the sun moves through 13 constellations, not just 12.

The thirteen constellation is called Ophiuchus. Ophiuchus, Greek for 'serpent-bearer,' is a large constellation that falls along the celestial equator, and falls between Aquila, Serpens, and Hercules in the northwest center of the Milky Way. While the origins of the character himself remain questionable, the constellation was one of the 48 discovered by the ancient philosopher Ptolemy.

The constellation has also gone by the name Serpentarius, the Latin version of its current name. Ophiuchus is depicted as a man holding a snake, as the constellation splits Serpens into two smaller constellations, Serpens Caput and Serpens Cauda, which are otherwise counted as one.

This means the constellations as we know it are totally out of date, and a revised version is needed.
