Pluto's new status

For those of you who pay attention to such thinks (okay, say geek!), the body Pluto has been demoted from planethood. Big deal, right??!

Some of you may know, I am an astrologer. I have been writing a book that specifically ties Uranus, Neptune and Pluto to history so it should be a big deal.

Believe or not I am not concerned about the demotion. I am not sure what Pluto is and neither do scientists. We do know that its is a Kuiper Belt body that shares its orbit with a "moon" Charon. But my study does convince me that Pluto is important.

How it matters takes an explanation too long for this media, but the synopsis highlights how the times between Uranus-Pluto, Uranus-Neptune and Neptune describe periods that history changes in similar matters. The conjunction of Neptune and Pluot and related angles tie together the Axial Age, Hellenism, the Dark Ages, The Fall of the Roman Empire, the birth of Islam and the Age of Reason. Also in play are the French, American and Industrial Revolutions. Pluto is central to all of these findings so shouldn't I be worried?

No, as long as the orbital calculations remain the same, the connections between outer planetary movements and history will stay cogent. I know most of you are scratching your heads, but don't mock what you don't know. Google, Uranus-Neptune or Neptune-Pluto or Palden, Uranus, Neptune and keep an open mind.

Pluto, no matter what. I still love you!

Mmmm bacteriophage

Not sure if you guys have heard about this yet, but the FDA just approved the use of a bacteriophage (bacteria-eating virus) as a food addative. It's virus that meat-packagers will begin to spray onto meat to destroy the type of bacteria that kills about 500 people a year.

A virus.

On our meat.

Anybody else want to join the vegan croud besides me? Because really... the war on food has just stepped up from chemical to biological, and the civilian casualties are going to be regular folks like you and me.
