Pluto The Planet Is Back!!!

In fact, pluto remains a dwarf planet :smile:

because
final paragraph of the article linked by the OP
despite its headline grabbing claims
states clearly as follows:

'.....It seems very likely
that at some point
the IAU will reconsider its flawed definition.
In the meantime
we’ll keep referring to round objects in our solar system
and elsewhere
as planets...'

Well, if it's "very likely" then there shouldn't be a problem assuming that Pluto will be a real planet.

And honestly, all astrologers believe Pluto is a planet anyway, regardless of what some scientists believe.

I sometimes think that the folks who do not wish to acknowledge Pluto as a viable astrological planet have a whomping big Pluto issue in their natal horoscopes. They don't like it, and prefer to believe that Pluto isn't a "real" planet, in the belief that their Pluto issue will thereby go away.

Something like a close Pluto square sun, which in my experience, is an extremely difficult natal aspect. When transiting Pluto squared my natal sun, it was one of the most difficult periods of my life. I have a lot of concern for people who have it natally, and respect for people who have addressed it successfully.

Just my personal opinion.

I actually agree with you.

Pluto is a very important planet that should be taken seriously.

But trads are just like "O:<<< blah blah traditional texts blah blah"

Information evolves and progresses and you must evolve with it.

I do. Here is a reminder of what is appropriate for this board and thread.

"For discussions on Modern Astrology only. (Note: Typically, modern astrology is defined as using techniques developed around the late 1800s by Theosophists. Specifically it relies on psychological, evolutionary, karmic, and non-western interpretation approaches and includes Neptune, Uranus and Pluto, and non-Ptolemaic aspects. The focus is more on psychological chart interpretation instead of prediction.)"

Mystery solved! Looks like mighty Jupiter has failed to clear its own orbit!!! So, if Pluto's not an Astronomical planet for that reason, neither is Jupiter! :smile:

''The IAU's definition does not attach specific numbers or equations to this term, but all the planets have cleared their neighbourhoods to a much greater extent (by orders of magnitude) than any dwarf planet, or any candidate for dwarf planet.'' - according to wikipedia, unverified and without citation however - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Clearing_the_neighbourhood

This asteroid appears to be some sort of interloper. I'm surprised that Jupiter hasn't been able to capture it or drive it away. No name for it yet, just a number, and it's moving in reverse direction.
