Astrology one step closer to its completion as a new planet is being predicted

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.

Best wishes,

  1. Great post! What happens when the Lord of Taurus gets discovered? Would it make any difference to what we already know as the traits of those born under the sign?


    • That’s a good question. Did the study of Uranus, Neptune and Pluto deepen our understanding of Aquarius, Pisces and Scorpio? Probably yes. It would also make a difference for delineating a chart: For planets, house cusps etc in Taurus you would no longer primarily look at Venus as their dispositor but at the new planet.


  2. Michael when you say “astrology’s one-time neatness” do you consider that there was once such a time and that astrology has become somewhat debased since that time? Interesting.


    • Vicky, to me, the domicile scheme is the keystone of all astrology, it’s genetic code. When there were only the five visible planets plus the two Luminaries known, astrology’s foundations were clear. With the discovery of more planets, the scheme became muddled. However, in my view, it is intrinsic to the universal natural philosophy that underlies astrology, and I propose that it will be resurrected in a balanced form once again in the future as more major bodies will be found in the outer solar system. So we are living in a transitional time.
      Beyond that, other scientific discoveries shook the Platonic-Aristotelian cosmology that astrology was embedded in. Sure enough, empirically speaking, astrology works today as well as it ever did, but now, we are hard pressed to explain how. This is the reason for so many attempts to ridicule astrology, and why it is not more generally accepted. To remedy that situation, nothing less will be necessary than to establish a new world model, which will encompass the ancient one, yet revise it on the basis of our expanded modern knowledge.
