Wobbly Earth means your horoscope is wrong stars shifted over 2,000 years so horoscope signs are nearly a month off.  

While this does not come as a huge shock to some, others are a bit more on the temperamental side about it. Astrologers have added a thirteenth zodiac sign to the already famous line up.
The new sign is Ophiuchus, the serpent holder, the dates that now hold this sign run from November 29 to December 17.

Ophiuchus is a large constellation located around the celestial equator. Its name is Greek for 'serpent-bearer', and it is commonly represented as a man grasping the snake that is represented by the constellation Serpens. Ophiuchus was one of the 48 constellations listed by the second-century astronomer Ptolemy, and it remains one of the 88 modern constellations. It was formerly referred to as Serpentarius, a Latin word also meaning 'serpent-bearer.'

For the Mythological aspect has four main theories:

The most recent interpretation is that the figure represents the healer Asclepius, who learned the secrets of keeping death at bay after observing one serpent bringing another healing herbs. To prevent the entire human race from becoming immortal under Asclepius' care, Zeus killed him with a bolt of lightning, but later placed his image in the heavens to honor his good works.

Another possibility is that the figure represents the Trojan priest Laocoön, who was killed by a pair of sea serpents sent by the gods after he warned the Trojans not to accept the Trojan Horse. This event was also memorialized by the sculptors Agesander, Athenodoros, and Polydorus in the famous marble sculpture Laocoön and his Sons, which stands in the Vatican Museums.

A third possibility is Apollo wrestling with the Python to take control of the oracle at Delphi.

A fourth is the story of Phorbas, a Thessalonian who rescued the people of the island of Rhodes from a plague of serpents and was granted a place in the sky in honor of this deed.
