The vote to demote Pluto occurred in the most Plutonian time in recorded history and was underhanded and highly contentious. And a new constellation has now been proclaimed by NASA, Ophiuchus; and both throw a monkey wrench into astrology - is that the intention? Of course not! Astrology is a 'pseudoscience' beneath the consideration of real scientists. So they say.
In the old days, astrologers who shared their knowledge with the surfs were thrown into dungeons and worse; these days ridicule quashes curiosity and religion scares the surfs away. Meanwwhile, astrology is quietly utilized by Wall Street elites and the relative few free thinkers who withstand the ridicule. The New Age was ignited with Linds Goodman's Sun Signs, but it was promptly infiltrated and marginalized. Many Millennials consider astrology a science, so maybe confusion will put out that fire, too?
"Pluto is the second-most complex, interesting planet in our solar system behind Earth"
"[O]nly 424 astronomers were allowed to vote, out of some 10,000 professional astronomers around the globe."
[A]stronomers are already circulating a petition that would try to overturn the IAU decision."
NASA missions may re-elevate Pluto and Ceres from dwarf planets to full-on planet status.
"A fierce backlash has begun against the decision by astronomers to strip Pluto of its status as a planet. [T]he lead scientist on Nasa's robotic mission to Pluto has lambasted the ruling, calling it "embarrassing". And the chair of the committee set up to oversee agreement on a definition implied that the vote had effectively been "hijacked". Dr Alan Stern...told BBC News: "It's an awful definition; it's sloppy science and it would never pass peer review.""
I've been an astrologer in my home state of Massachusetts for over four decades. My interest was sparked at 13 by Linda Goodman's Sun Signs; a fantastic book that put millions of seekers on the path of celestial wisdom and ignited the New Age in 1968.
The '70s were a heady time, with acclaimed astrologers just bus stops away, so my sister Anne and I attended lectures with the likes of Isabel Hickey, Francis Sakoian and Oscar Weber. Astrologer Paul Guercio moved from New York to our town in '74, where he and his beautiful wife Magae held small, intimate classes within walking distance; so off we skipped to have our minds blown in cozy comfort.
In 1981 I began a five year apprenticeship with Paul that became a lifelong friendship. Paul was a frequent guest on David Brudnoy and other local broadcasts, to make dazzling political forecasts; I sometimes tagged along and may have mumbled a word or two.
In the early 90s the computer age arrived and Paul was approached by government physicist George Hart, with an idea for a programmed graph of celestial cycles. Their collaboration became TimeTraks, the first of its kind. Calling themselves the Merlin Project, Paul & George made political predictions on tv & radio. Paul suddenly passed on in 2019 and TimeTraks passed from the public with him. He is sorely missed by many.
In 1994, following Paul's lead and pregnant with my third baby, I created the FutureGraph™. I followed it with the read-it-yourself BirthPrint™, because no one is better qualified to analyze your chart than you are.
And as luck would have it, I married a Goodman.
