The fate of Pluto
Astrology and religion
There is a good analogical relationship between Uranus, Neptune and Pluto and the Holy Trinity as considered by the traditional Christian church.
Uranus would represent the Son of God, Jesus Christ, the eternal Logos or Word. (Uranus is the superior octave of Mercury, natural ruler of communication and ordinary words).
Neptune would represent the Holy Spirit, the "Comforter", the giver of spiritual gifts, a manifestation of God's Love (Neptune is the superior octave of Venus, natural ruler of the ordinary love).
Pluto would represent God the Father, a supreme authority that is beyond anything, omniscient, omnipotent, omnipresent (Pluto is the superior octave of Mars, natural ruler of will and action).
This seems like a perfect system to describe the Holy Trinity.
But what happens now that Pluto is no longer considered an actual planet, but only a "dwarf planet"? I feel compelled to inquire - is this a SIGN?
What if something is going to happen to Christianity as we know it?
Many of you are probably aware of Malachy's prophecy: in 1139, Saint Malachy wrote this prophecy about future popes, giving a short description for each one of them. The current Pope, Benedict XVI, is the last one described in the prophecy and after him there's only one whose reign will mark the end of papacy.

Should we be very worried about it? Isn't Pluto the astrological archetype of death and resurrection, of total transformation? Why worry over Pluto having the same fate as its archetype?
If religion as we know it will die, it will surely be resurrected in a new form, much improved. The spirit never dies, so spirituality cannot die either.
Maybe this is just a step towards a better religion, a better life and a better world. God knows we need it and look forward to it.
Let me then say: "Pluto is dead. Long live Pluto!", in the traditional style used in various European countries when a new monarch accesses to the throne.
