The article mentioned the triplicity rulerships of early Dorothean or classic astrology.

And the seasonal elements of each sign in both northern and southern hemispheres.

To be fully educated and knowledgeable on astrology is questionable: a number of astrologers disagree with each other and their practices can vary abit. You have the traditional vs. modern, sidereal vs. tropical, 13 sign vs. 12 sign and Aquarius-first vs. Aries-first versions in astrology I'm aware tell me which one version is the most accurate or precise to use or follow? The point of learning astrology is to understand how it properly works and what to believe is the "correct" way in standards and practices. Following the instructions and rules is part of majoring in a study or profession, because you have to get something "right"-ly done.

I believe the largest dwarf planets Ceres and Eris can have co-rulerships with signs already under Venus and Mercury, and the Sun co-rules Cancer while the Moon co-rules Leo. My own belief is Eris affects Taurus and Gemini, while Ceres affects Virgo and Libra. I'm not exactly sure, but it is a break of traditional astrology and supporting my version is the continued use of dwarf planet Pluto to rule Scorpio and co-rule Aries. I have felt Ophiuchus, Orion, Cetus and even Sextans are so close to the ecliptic, they give off a parazodiacal bent on some people's birth charts and horoscopes. I may find some quirks and oddities to give out better results.
