Yes! There have always been 13 signs of the Zodiac. For some reason Astrology does not recognise 'Ophiuchus' which like the other 12 Zodical constellations, contains the Sun during the year.

The date that Ophiuchus would represent on the calendar would be November 30th - December 18th. One reason why astrology does not use it may be because it would mess up their yearly 12 month calendars.
