Some of you might know that I have been insisting for years that, to recover astrology’s one-time neatness, it will be necessary to introduce further, still unknown planets of the solar system. So it might be understandable that I am quite excited that very recently such a planet has been predicted by the famous astronomer Mike Brown who already discovered Eris and many other trans-Neptunian objects.
Although the new planet hasn’t been observed yet, the probability of its existence has been determined as 15’000:1 based on observed gravitational disturbances in the outer solar system. Mike Brown said that there might actually be more than one planet still hidden on the outskirts of the solar system.
To complete the domicile scheme in modern astrology, Taurus should be next in line to receive a “lord” of its own, followed eventually by Virgo. (Surely there are alternative views on this.)
This will not invalidate the traditional scheme in which five planets and two luminaries rule all the signs of the zodiac, it will just add another dimension to it.
