2002-VR130* conjuncts@ the North Node$ in Leo from August 8 to October 6, 2018. There is no available public record of the turnover of personnel in the Vancouver, British Columbia Funk band Five Alarm Funk, founding in 2003 before, during & after their initial gig at the Fairview Pub on Vancouver’s West Broadway. Even so, Five Alarm Funk main drummer (they have three) & leader Tayo Branston have no trouble finding new personnel to replace those who trade in a grueling Canadian tour schedule for a day job – hence, the slogan, “I can’t even find three guys to golf with and Five Alarm Funk can find eight guys to play the most bizarre shit I’ve ever heard.” Because, moreover, the history of Five Alarm Funk is rooted in jam sessions of pairs & trios of musicians in dialogue simultaneously in some Lower Mainland suburban garage, the infrastructure of Five Alarm Funk not only supports but in fact embellishes chaos, colorfully depicted by the two Five Alarm Funk drummers in absurdly colorful costumes or lack of clothing (debate exists as to whether Five Alarm Funk lead drummer Branston himself actually owns a shirt) as they conduct performance art embellishments in the spirit of a Calgary Stampede rodeo clown. All simultaneous paradoxical crosscurrents to the contrary, Five Alarm Funk is not the John Coltrane acid trip on Om, but a highly disciplined unit which emanates chaos from its own authoritarian core, its own Higgs Boson particle, as Tayo Branston acts as conductor of the symphony, invisible to the audience behind various drumkits, commanding silence with outstretched drum sticks before giving the signal . . . to commence playing music. The cult of Orpheus at the height of summer!  

ARIES – Everybody craves attention wearing the most outlandish clothes & saying the most outrageous things to each other in their absurdly colorful group! 2002-VR130 conjunct the North Node applauds! Life without the fun of friends is only work. The next Bull Market can wait!  

TAURUS – Announce a Halloween costume party at your home as early as possible. 2002-VR130 conjunct the North Node will make Halloween an Instagram epic if you give your show-off friends & family sufficient time to really show off!  

GEMINI – Political pundits who hate each others’ guts talk over one another on television all the time. 2002-VR130 conjunct the North Node advise that you try this with all your friends, using prepared texts if you wish, and recording it. Develop a new artistic aesthetic.  

CANCER – 2002-VR130 conjunct the North Node denotes that you benefit financially through public appearances with your entourage. You need not demand the Lion’s share of attention all the time – all you really need to do is just to continue to play in the band. All the shows on the tour are sold out!  

LEO – Are you jealous that you are not the star of the show? 2002-VR130 conjunct the North Node asks, and not rhetorically, “Who is the star of the show?” Once you answer that question – even if it is you – ask yourself, “Is that star of the show getting the attention to which that star is entitled – or is somebody trying to steal that attention for themselves?” Don’t be egoistic. Analyze how things should be.  

VIRGO – Saboteurs in the professional workplace draw petty attention to themselves to distract you from what & whom they do not want you to see. 2002-VR130 conjunct the North Node challenges you to act like you are paying attention to such nonsense as you are really scoping out everything else except them.  

LIBRA – A series of meetings with client representatives will only confuse you if you pay too much attention & take too many notes. 2002-VR130 conjunct the North Node only wants you to juxtapose a name with a face with an attitude. If possible, simply laugh at each individual’s jokes – and try to contribute a funny little footnote to each along the way.  

SCORPIO – Whether you are doing anything illegal or not, 2002-VR130 conjunct the North Node now reminds you that undercover law enforcement comes in all shapes, sizes, colors & genders, and does all sorts of things for all sorts of reasons. Indeed, you cannot try to presume that you know what any undercover law enforcement official is actually trying to do – or why they are trying to do it. Don’t be smug.  

SAGITTARIUS – The North Node in Leo in your 9th house issuing judgment declares either redemption or punishment. 2002-VR130 conjunct the North Node denotes that, whether you are redeemed or punished, you will join those who are also redeemed or also punished to create a panorama of heroes & heroines. . . . or a rogue’s gallery.  

CAPRICORN – Once one bank declares you creditworthy, dozens of credit cards will make you offers. Once one creditor issues a demand letter, collections agents will phone you every day. Therefore, even though somebody will always be harassing you, 2002-VR130 conjunct the North Node declares that it is always better to be able to say, “I really do not want to share the money that I really do have with you” so that they simply . . . go away.  

AQUARIUS – The Waterbearer does not stand out in a group – indeed, the Waterbearer hides in a group. Therefore, while groups of people try to attract attention with wild clothing, provocative statements & general unruliness, 2002-VR130 conjunct the North Node notices that you will provide a counterbalance, wearing conservative, casual clothing, standing by yourself in a bookstore, asking a bookstore clerk, “Where can I find the dictionaries?” (Do you have any personal animosity towards “fun”?)  

PISCES – Gym rats: While lying on your back on the flat bench, you attract a litany of gym rats whose descriptions of how they use the flat bench to work their chest prevent you from doing it right now. Why? Because 2002-VR130 conjunct the North Node says that you are the most impressive person training in the gym. While you should continue to be polite, simply ask, “Just let me finish this set,” before talking for as long as you want to any & all of these other gym rats . . . after you impress them with your massive power.   

* 2002-VR130 is an unnamed centaur planet discovered on November 7, 2002. The orbit of 2002-VR130 commences beyond the orbit of Saturn as it crosses over the orbit of Uranus & Neptune.

$ The North Node and the South Node, or the Nodes of the Moon, represent current & past life karma, respectively, according to astrologer Martin Schulman. Astronomically, the North Node & the South Node are the two points at which the Moon's orbit intersects the ecliptic, setting a timetable for large-scale Solar & Lunar Eclipses over time.

ARTICLE #2

Bienor< in Gemini squares* Aphidas@ in Virgo from June 20 to October 20, 2018, while Echeclus> in Gemini squares* Aphidas@ in Virgo from June 26 to November 17, 2018. A bitter thief steals because of the entitlement of resentment. A calculated thief strategizes how to maximize illicit profit. The calculated thief works with the bitter thief to maximize that profit, as the bitter thief works with the calculated thief to maximize the damage.  

ARIES – A pair or trio of pals who look, talk & act shady are shady. Bienor, Echeclus & Aphidas encourage the Ram to keep surveillance on them. Subtlety is not necessary – they are brazen.  

TAURUS – Retail store owners: Redesign your cabinets, corridors, cashier stations & exits. Credit card & e-commerce surveillance & regulators: Be alert for new transaction data patterns that connote fraud & theft. Bienor, Echeclus & Aphidas warn that an evil genius is launching a master plan. Change the interface that such thieves wish to exploit.  

GEMINI – Those who live with family: Don’t yell at family members for moving your things. Those who live with roommates: Monitor who may be stealing before you confront them. Bienor, Echeclus & Aphidas insist that you must keep the peace at home at the same time that you solve the problem. Don’t raise your voice. Proceed logically.  

CANCER – Shred your bills. Bienor, Echeclus & Aphidas augur an increase in identity theft. Be neither cavalier nor careless.  

LEO – Bienor, Echeclus & Aphidas denote that a client who believes that you are overstaffed . . . will insist.  

VIRGO – Certain bosses who resent your self-evident considerable skill will attempt to exploit it against you. Bienor, Echeclus & Aphidas exhort you to comply with their unfair demands with good humor. Wear them down. Kill with kindness.   LIBRA – Bienor, Echeclus & Aphidas suggest that a cadre of conspirators will try to frame somebody legally. If accused, don’t lash out. If suspicious, withhold accusations until more facts are forthcoming.  

SCORPIO – Disloyal partners try to screw you & your staunch allies out of resentment & malice. Bienor, Echeclus & Aphidas know that you don’t like them either – and you are in the right. Give as good as you get & do not back down. Stay on that high road.  

SAGITTARIUS – Let enemies taunt you as much as they like. Bienor, Echeclus & Aphidas declare that, when they are all after you, you are winning. Green with envy!  

CAPRICORN – You need proof that specific thieves are stealing from you or your employer. To do so, you must catch them in the act. Therefore, Bienor, Echeclus & Aphidas instruct you to coordinate with allies to set up a trap. Accept that thieves are too smart & slick to fail as a result of their own flaws.  

AQUARIUS – Take all the time necessary to park your bike or car on a routine basis. Bienor, Echeclus & Aphidas signify that vehicle theft is on the rise. Take nothing for granted.  

PISCES – Separate spouse from family members to stop the bickering & fighting. Bienor, Echeclus & Aphidas do not doubt that many of the rivalries amongst all those loved ones have merit – but why should you suffer any of the fallout? Force everybody to behave in civilized fashion before you do any real “peacekeeping.”

< Bienor, a centaur planet that traverses from just outside the orbit of Saturn just across the orbit of Uranus, was discovered in August 2000 & named in January 2004. Theseus, fighting for the Lapiths against the Centaurs to avenge the honor of Peirithous's bride Hippodamia, killed Bienor by jumping on his back, pulling his hair, and smashing his mouth while it spouted violent threats. For information on how to interpret Bienor, formerly 2000-QC243, note reference to Philip Sedgwick below. 

> Echeclus, a centaur planet that traverses from the orbit of Jupiter to the orbit of Uranus, was discovered in March 2000 & named in February 2006. Echeclus, in the battle fought between the Centaurs & the Lapiths, died as the Lapith Ampyx threw his spear without a tip directly into Echeclus's face as Echeclus was attacking Ampyx at full gallop. For information on how to interpret Echeclus, formerly 2000-EC98, note reference to Philip Sedgwick below. 

@ Aphidas, a centaur planet which crosses across the orbits of Saturn & Neptune, was discovered in December 1999 and named in October 2017. The centaur Phorbas, disgusted because his fellow centaur had passed out, drunk, rather than fighting the Lapiths during the wedding feast of Pirithous, killed Aphidas with a javelin, with black blood pouring from Aphidas’s throat into his wine cup. For information on how to interpret Aphidas, formerly 1999-XX143, note reference to Philip Sedgwick below.

ARTICLE #3

2003-WL7* conjuncts@ the North Node$ in Leo from July 16 to September 1, 2018. “You can only tell people to control their temper for so long,” the older policeman said to the rookie. “You can only tell citizens burning with righteous rage to temper their rage for so long. Once anger escalates into violence, the time for talk is over, for, as George Kennan warned, war is also part of diplomacy.”  

ARIES – 2003-WL7 conjunct the North Node announces that love affairs get too hot not to cool down. Will the relationship last? Yes, no, maybe – for now, enjoy the heat while it lasts.  

TAURUS – You cannot delay a family argument or conflict forever. However, if bad feelings now rise to the surface, 2003-WL7 conjunct the North Node advises that you find somebody to act as a referee . . . and bouncer.  

GEMINI – You have supreme faith in your skills as a negotiator. However, unless you keep your ego out of current negotiations, 2003-WL7 conjunct the North Node worries that you will pay more money for something or somebody that you, ultimately, really do not want.  

CANCER – Either your good reputation blazes the sky, inducing new clients to throw money at you, or money burns a hole in your pocket, lighting your pants & underpants on fire, or both. In any instance, 2003-WL7 conjunct the North Node implore you to jump into a pool of very cold water . . . before going to the bank & depositing all your money. Back to the pool!  

LEO – You have been wanting for several years to tell one, or even more than one, creep, what you think of them in some rather unvarnished language. Because you will soon acquire an insurmountable advantage, 2003-WL7 conjunct the North Node advises you to wait until you are absolutely legally, physically & professional invulnerable until you choose to express yourself.  

VIRGO – You can launch a string of curses more surly than the detoxifying crackhead on the street. However, 2003-WL7 conjunct the North Node warns that you will have bit off more trouble than you can chew if you spew out any racial epithets.  

LIBRA – You cannot afford to give clients the impression that you are ignoring them or giving their demands lip service. Unfortunately, 2003-WL7 conjunct the North Node worries that, until such clients show their temper, they will all choose to be irrationally polite. Overcommunicate. Find out what’s really under their skin before they explode in your face.  

SCORPIO – A certain professional superior or law enforcement official really wants to ride roughshod all over your face. 2003-WL7 conjunct the North Node cruelly strategizes that, the more that you yield, the guiltier that that professional superior or law enforcement official will be in a court of law. You cannot fight back!  

SAGITTARIUS – You are either an invincible & incorruptible superhero or a walking open bag of fermented & foul garbage. 2003-WL7 conjunct the North Node declare that, if you continue on your path, you will only become that much more powerful or that much more toxic. But what if your destiny or fate is in doubt? Be very careful. Johnny “Johnny Football” Manziel des Montreal Alouettes!  

CAPRICORN – Your wealth or your debt will increase to a magnitude that you cannot possibly fathom – but if you are rich, as Mad Magazine’s Alfred E. Neuman would say, “What, Me Worry?” As for ever increasing debt, however – if 2003-WL7 conjunct the North Node suggests that bankruptcy is inevitable, for what reason do you now wait? Stop the bottomless spiral now.

AQUARIUS – An enemy who hates your guts wants to fight you – and they will insult you to your face until you choose to fight. 2003-WL7 conjunct the North Node declares that your choice is self-evident. Fight – or turn your back & walk away. Don’t continue to trade insults if you have no intention to trade blows.  

PISCES – Weightlifters: Your accelerating training regimen yields astounding results. However, 2003-WL7 conjunct the North Node reminds you to keep your end goal, which you formulated before you began this current training regimen, firmly in mind. Stay on track to your original goal. Don’t get lost in the experience of pure animal muscle.

@ A Conjunction is a harmonious aspect wherein two or more planets meet as they transit the same sign.

ARTICLE #4

Chiron< in Aries trines* 2002-VR130> in Leo from June 28 to September 5, 2018. “Why do I have to move with a crowd of kids who hardly notice I’m around?” In “Cut My Hair,” Roger Daltrey, as Jimmy, the young Mod protagonist of The Who’s rock opera Quadrophenia, laments the peer pressure of youth. “I work myself to death just to fit in.”  

ARIES –Do your friends, your lover amongst your friends, and your friends’ lovers amongst all your friends, make you stronger or weaker? Chiron & 2002-VR130 reply that the only correct answer is “stronger” – otherwise, you need different friends & lovers.  

TAURUS – Grandparents, uncles, aunts & parents cannot play favorites, whereas children reserve that invaluable right in their aggressively selected cliques. Therefore, if you are an authority figure, Chiron & 2002-VR130 signify that you should proactively break down children’s inclination to create cliques as early as possible.  

GEMINI – Artists in the early & mid-20th century would band into groups & write “manifestos” to proclaim their relevance. Chiron & 2002-VR130 agree that this self-same publicity stunt is alive & well – of course, sans “manifestos.” You & your group should seek attention in whatever way works for you.  

CANCER – Just like hockey coaches have their high-scoring, fast-skating first lines to take control & to maintain the pace of the game, Chiron & 2002-VR130 put you & a select group of colleagues on your bosses’ “A Team.” Being on the A Team secures privileges & overtime money. Do a great job to stay on this roster.  

LEO – Whether you are the Super Bowl or Grey Cup champions, the Rolling Stones or the staff of a newspaper on convention, Chiron & 2002-VR130 makes you all for one & one for all. Do nothing that reflects badly upon everybody else – and tolerate no teammate whose bad behavior reflects upon the rest of you.  

VIRGO – Because there will be a lot of people, especially young men, under surveillance, Chiron & 2002-VR130 denote that there will be many also conducting surveillance – all of whom will know the names of everybody whom they have, under surveillance. Be guided accordingly.  

LIBRA – Read Aquarius. A business partner who wants attention from client representatives, or a close friend who seeks to impress your own personal acquaintances, will find themselves facing a very tough crowd – but, as Chiron & 2002-VR130 will confirm, better that partner struggle with individuals whom that partner deems to be their peers than for you to try to control them against their will.  

SCORPIO – Bosses flood the workplace. As they do so, whether they intend to do so or not, they intimidate – but Chiron & 2002-VR130 whisper that you have no reason to be scared. Indeed, bosses may try to intimidate you because their bosses are now intimidating them. Why? Just because it is “the pecking order.”  

SAGITTARIUS – Writers, comedians, actors, painters, athletes: “So, you’re a (writer) (comedian) (actor) (painter) (athlete)? Well, I’m a (writer) (comedian) (actor) (painter) (athlete), too – and so are my (three) (five) (seven) (eleven) (nineteen) friends!” Chiron & 2002-VR130 smirk, “Sound familiar?” Well, you don’t have to be social – better alone than in bad company, “Bad Company – Great band! ‘It’s why they call me, “Bad company,” and I can’t deny’ – ”  

CAPRICORN – Your inability to pay one debt under the current influence Chiron & 2002-VR130 may induce all sorts of creditors to bombard you with immediate demand for payment, simultaneously. Seek a financial advisor. Consolidate your debt so that you may keep your property or apartment.  

AQUARIUS – Read Libra. Realistically, you can challenge just one, or maybe, only possibly, two rivals. However, when dealing with entire groups of people who don’t agree with, and may not choose to tolerate, you, Chiron & 2002-VR130 strongly advise that you find a way to get along. Become part of the group.  

PISCES – Chiron & 2002-VR130 favor receiving offers of short-term employment – personal training, cater waiting, dog-walking, house-sitting, house-moving, all sorts of freelance contractor, writing & illustration work – from colleagues with whom you have worked before. However, none of this will be permanent – all of it is a side hustle. But money is money – and some opportunities will be prestigious. Keep in constant contact.

< Chiron, named after the wounded centaur who sacrificed his immortality in return for the liberation of Prometheus (he who stole fire from the gods!) was the first centaur planet discovered back in 1977. Chiron, described as "the wounded healer" by Zane Stein & Barbara Hand Clow, bridges the gap between Saturn & Uranus, exhorting us to teach that which we most need to learn.

ARTICLE #5

Thereus* conjunct1 the North Node$ in Leo opposes2 Pandora! conjunct1 Retrograde3 Mars conjunct1 the South Node$ in Aquarius from June 25 to August 13, 2018. A hunter does not chase the flying bird. The detective does not physically follow the fugitive everywhere the fugitive goes. The hunter & the detective first identify migration patterns over the course of a day, a month, a year. The hunter & the detective determine where the bird & the fugitive choose to rest. The hunter & the detective then approach before the bird & the fugitive are prepared to move – then forces the bird & the fugitive to move in a direction which favors the hunter & the detective to the detriment of the bird & the fugitive.  

ARIES – Poise is everything. Thereus, the North Node, Pandora, Retrograde Mars & the South Node signify that motion is an unconscious bodily reaction to the depletion of adrenaline. What you must do is wait. Allow patterns to form around you. Watch. Observe. Bond psychologically, via meditation, with the object of your hunt.  

TAURUS – Obtuse political perversions dazzle & tantalize televised political pundits, but Thereus, the North Node, Pandora, Retrograde Mars & the South Node notice that you could care less, “Voltaire said, ‘Plant your own garden,’ at the end of Candide,” you tell anyone who will listen. “Ditch the clown show.”  

GEMINI – Whether public figures addicted to dominating the media or people who never stop talking, certain individuals have zero focus on what they say – they simply want to read their own name in print & to hear their own voice. Conversely, Thereus, the North Node, Pandora, Retrograde Mars & the South Node agree, “The less you say, the more you hear” – and the more devastating your inevitable interruption will be.  

CANCER – Enemies who were former friends still try to manipulate you emotionally by telling you that if you do not agree with their political position, you are not their friends. Now that it is clearer what these enemies are trying to achieve, Thereus, the North Node, Pandora, Retrograde Mars & the South Node say that you should let them say whatever they like for as long as they like – until you have your final word.  

LEO – Spouse, lovers & business partners, as they have in the past, insist upon unlimited freedom of movement – and the right to ignore you. However, sooner rather than later, Thereus, the North Node, Pandora, Retrograde Mars & the South Node augur that spouse, loves & business partners will try to meet you face to face to come to terms – because they will in fact need you. Don’t hardball them yet – they will not listen. Let them screw up twice.

VIRGO – Long-term colleagues rejoice at the degree of professional latitude now afforded them as they tell younger rookies how it was back in the day. Behind-the-scenes surveillance in coordination with bosses under the current influence of Thereus, the North Node, Pandora, Retrograde Mars & the South Node will dispel that laissez-faire illusion. Expect forthcoming workplace corrections to set the score straight.  

LIBRA – Politicians: Your true constituency says nothing to you as they wait for you to approach them. Of course, you may be campaigning for votes – as Thereus, the North Node, Pandora, Retrograde Mars & the South Node note, the votes of those without power. Those with power expect you to approach them – with all requisite formal etiquette & deference. Curb your ego.  

SCORPIO – Thereus, the North Node, Pandora, Retrograde Mars & the South Node denote that law enforcement will conduct surveillance of your neighborhood, and even your home, because they do not like your political beliefs or attitude. Nobody said that this is fair; it may not even be legal! Regardless: Behave with conspicuous & punctilious rectitude. Sir!  

SAGITTARIUS – Distance yourself from “friends” who insist upon acting out of control as they flout, thumbing their noses at, the law. Thereus, the North Node, Pandora, Retrograde Mars & the South Node surmise that you are just paranoid enough to realize that law enforcement & authority figures conduct fixed surveillance – but, in this instance, your paranoia is a saving grace. Brace yourself for unpleasant surprises from a safe, remote location.  

CAPRICORN – Ultimately, Thereus, the North Node, Pandora, Retrograde Mars & the South Node demand that you answer the question, truthfully, “Can I afford, financially, to compete with these other businesses which have more money? Can I afford, financially, to live in this neighborhood where people with more money are moving in every day?” Push will one day come to shove & you will have to pony up more money. Know your tax bracket. You’re a Capricorn – stop deceiving yourself about your real net worth.  

AQUARIUS – Thereus, the North Node, Pandora, Retrograde Mars & the South Node warn you not to underestimate your enemy. Since the early Nineties you have cultivated the attitude that you could do whatever you want whenever you want & win. You have real competition now – and they don’t like you. Discipline yourself.  

PISCES – People from the past who always got ahead – or who always “got over” – via their personal & professional connections now run their same game. However, Thereus, the North Node, Pandora, Retrograde Mars & the South Node signify that now, you realize & accept that that does not win for you. You hold your ground & do your job & bosses treat you as if you are invaluable – because you are. Who needs “friends” when power brokers protect you?  

* Thereus, a centaur planet that traverses the orbit of Saturn, was discovered in August 2001 & named in June 2003. Thereus was a centaur who hunted bears which, upon capture, he carried home alive. For information on how to interpret Thereus, formerly 2001-PT13, note reference to Philip Sedgwick below.  

! Pandora, discovered by G. Searle in 1858 in Albany, New York, receives its name from the first woman on earth, according to Greek mythology. Like Eve, who tempted Adam to eat of the forbidden fruit of the tree in the center of the Garden of Eden, Pandora opened a box which she had been forbidden to open under any circumstances. Pandora bridges punctilious Mercury with innovative Uranus; Pandora represents the unforeseen, troublesome yet oftentimes beneficial consequences which arise from both natural human curiosity & the side effects which occur as humans strive for progress.

$ The North Node and the South Node, or the Nodes of the Moon, represent current & past life karma, respectively, according to astrologer Martin Schulman. Astronomically, the North Node & the South Node are the two points at which the Moon's orbit intersects the ecliptic, setting a timetable for large-scale Solar & Lunar Eclipses over time.

ARTICLE #6

Echeclus< in Gemini trines1 Elatus> in Libra from July 9 to October 3, 2018, during which Retrograde2 Mars in Aquarius trines1 Echeclus< in Gemini trines1 Elatus> in Libra from July 9 to August 2, 2018. Legal reporting in mainstream newspapers have outlined & repeated all the facts in all possible formats. Political commentary which takes a position cannot ignore any of the facts, but must address, however accurately & precisely, all of these facts, lest entrenched political opposition point out their willful & prevaricating negligence.  

ARIES – The facts are there for all to see. Retrograde Mars, Echeclus & Elatus denote that you must align yourself with the slant of a partisan or the neutrality of the court. Choose the latter – unconditionally.  

TAURUS – Old bosses or old sources of income become available to you to discuss business down the line. However, Retrograde Mars, Echeclus & Elatus do not suggest that you expect immediate opportunities – but they do exhort you to pay heightened analytical attention to specific trends which favor you in the long run.  

GEMINI – A publicly posted sign or advertisement, or some pundit’s published political analysis, made you think about astrology for the first time in a long time. Partially, as Retrograde Mars, Echeclus & Elatus surmise, because you are sick of man’s attempt to control government to control man, as well as the shameless bias of egoistic opinion. You are hungry for something that explains everything – in cosmic terms which are also neutral. Revisit.  

CANCER – A devotee who chastises you for a politically incorrect reference to an alternative sexuality neither angers nor shames you. Truth be told, Retrograde Mars, Echeclus & Elatus notice that you are currently pondering the divorce rate, your own & your siblings’ marriages & how you are raised by your parents decades ago. Let those who require politics spray invective over the official policy of the monolithic state. Identify if, and why or why not, you were raised to be, and raised to become, happy.  

LEO – Disregard the return of that business partner or rival who tried & tries to make you feel irrelevant by refusing to acknowledge you. Retrograde Mars, Echeclus & Elatus remind you that you are not just sending that email to this one manipulator – you work with many responsible adults who proactively respond & engage. Forget “personality.” Stick to business.  

VIRGO – Certain elements of a current project recall a distant past while the personnel involves unknown people of the present & future. Retrograde Mars, Echeclus & Elatus suggest that bosses now manipulate you to determine how you respond. Are you growing & maturing? Are you subject to unhealthy patterns of recidivism?  

LIBRA – A photograph of a political figure, perhaps with you in it, simultaneously reminds you of the innocence & foolishness of your youthful ideals. But Retrograde Mars, Echeclus & Elatus asks, “What are such ideals innocent or foolish?” Logistics may be complicated – right from wrong is simple. Are you actually disappointed that people whom you admire did not demonstrate even cursory respect for ideals which you revere.  

SCORPIO – A mayor or civic leader from your city’s past cannot but help to recall how things were – but also, as Retrograde Mars, Echeclus & Elatus inter, what might have been. Why did this civic leader make their appearance? Are they promulgating a new agenda – or laying the groundwork for a new generation?  

SAGITTARIUS – A joke that you told, to much unanimous hilarity, twenty years ago, would attract universal scorn as a racist, sexist or bigoted sentiment today. However, Retrograde Mars, Echeclus & Elatus notice that you are tempted to tell that joke anyway, if only to confront all the anal Puritans who annoy you. Can you be sure that none of those anal Puritans will be recording your off-color humor on their cell phones to post on Instagram, Facebook or You Tube? How much do you really have to lose?  

CAPRICORN – Official correspondence from your employer setting workplace policy under the dictates of the federal, state or provincial law is not the subject of op-ed commentary. Whatever the workplace dictates, Retrograde Mars, Echeclus & Elatus instruct you to comply or to leave – not to argue.  

AQUARIUS – If you are a trial lawyer, you compete with adversaries in court – but the competition is not pure, but based upon the precepts of achieving justice. Whether or not you are a lawyer, however, Retrograde Mars, Echeclus & Elatus declare that you should fulfill your desire to compete intellectually in pure terms, whether arguing sports, like Stephen A. & Kellerman, playing guitar duel solos onstage at an open mike, grinding out a poker game or whatever gets your blood up. Brag. Swagger. Trash talk. All in good fun!  

PISCES – Don’t play anybody else’s game or engage in somebody else’s transaction according to their impatient pace. Retrograde Mars, Echeclus & Elatus insist that, when stakes are on the table, that you, Pisces the Fish, take all the time necessary . . . as suits you & you alone.  

< Echeclus, a centaur planet that traverses from the orbit of Jupiter to the orbit of Uranus, was discovered in March 2000 & named in February 2006. Echeclus, in the battle fought between the Centaurs & the Lapiths, died as the Lapith Ampyx threw his spear without a tip directly into Echeclus's face as Echeclus was attacking Ampyx at full gallop. For information on how to interpret Echeclus, formerly 2000-EC98, note reference to Philip Sedgwick below.  

> Elatus, a centaur planet that traverses the orbits of Saturn & Uranus, was discovered in October 1999 & named in June 2003. Elatus, along with Chiron, was injured by the same poisoned arrow of Hercules when an entire tribe of centaurs attacked Hercules for drinking the communal wine of the tribe while the centaur Pholus cooked & served Hercules dinner. For information on how to interpret Elatus, formerly 1999-UG5, note reference to Philip Sedgwick below.

ARTICLE #7

Saturn in Capricorn sextiles* 2002-CR46@ in Scorpio from July 8, 2018 to January 6, 2019. At some point in their careers, prominent Massachusetts Democratic politicians, including, most likely, U.S. Senator Ted Kennedy, U.S. Senator John Kerry, Massachusetts Governor Michael Dukakis & long-time Boston Mayor Thomas Menino, amongst others, would have reason to visit a formal session of the Massachusetts State Senate, headed by Senate President William M. Bulger. Of course, inevitably, the voting public would wonder, as each respective dignitary glad-handed & guffawed with Massachusetts State Senate President Bulger, “What is this prominent, honorable politician doing associating so publicly with the brother of that vicious & notorious gangster Whitey Bulger?” And, moreover, the more astute & curious amongst these in the public asked themselves, “What exactly is that prominent politician thinking in the back of his closely guarded mind about this extremely clear conflict of interest?”  

ARIES – Your bosses’ criminal affiliations are not your criminal affiliations. Unless & until you get a new job, Saturn & 2002-CR46 advise you to turn a blind eye & mind your own business. When a bunch of cops start to shake the tree, just continue on as you have before. Accept that you cannot control everything.  

TAURUS – Read Sagittarius. Explain to friends & partners that their criminal affiliations will attract police surveillance to them. Furthermore, Saturn & 2002-CR46 advise that you tell your own friends of whom you suspect criminal behavior that they cannot trust that their own associates will turn them over to the police. Emphasize dystopian realism.  

GEMINI – In Liar’s Poker, Michael Lewis describes how bond traders at Salomon Brothers in the mid-Eighties would compensate for the lack of perks which the firm provided by using the firm’s car service to an abusive & ludicrous extent. Whether or not Salomon Brothers changed its policy regarding use of the car service, Saturn & 2002-CR46 specify that any & all resources of the firm, copious though they may seem, are, in fact, not only limited, but often provided strictly at the firm’s expense. In fact, such resources are not shared resources, because only the firm owns them, and only the firm provides them. While you cannot control anybody else’s behavior, demonstrate that you are not wasting what is not your property so that bosses will make you the worthy exception when bosses take such privileges away from everybody else.  

CANCER – In order to maintain properly reptilian sexual relations with one’s spouse or mate, one must, on some psychological or emotional level, regard one’s spouse as a stranger, as a member of the opposite sex whose body remains an unexplored mystery. Still, Saturn & 2002-CR46 wonder how far any couple in relationship can take this protocol without offending themselves or their partner. After all, Freudian-based aversion is inevitable – but you both must remember why, in the beginning, you chose to “suspend disbelief.”  

LEO – A family member may know somebody a colleague with whom you work or an employee whom you employ, but Saturn & 2002-CR46 demands that you get straight in your own head that the emphasis is not upon whom your family member knows – and what your family member knows about whom your family member knows – but upon the job that you & your colleagues & employees do at work.  

VIRGO – You find out from your son’s best friend, visiting you for a sandwich at lunch between basketball games, that your husband is cheating on you with your son’s best friend’s mother? You learn from one of the other students on your son’s football team that your son’s best friend is pressuring your son to sell illegal drugs? Saturn & 2002-CR46 make for the strangest bedfellows – but any bedfellows that threaten to corrupt the morals of your children, fodder though it may be for daytime television, cannot possibly be tolerated by you. However, before you act, find a good friend with whom you can explain your dilemma – ideally, a friend who works in law enforcement. Don’t do anything impulsive.  

LIBRA – You are privy to local trends because clients, partners & friends are proprietary information with you. Simultaneously, Saturn & 2002-CR46 state that you will also realize who else in your city, state or province is privy to that proprietary information. Consider: How did they come across what other people, in good faith, shared with you?  

SCORPIO – Friends & partners ask questions to, and make demands of, other people, which surprise you. Saturn & 2002-CR46 declare that you’re not the only Scorpio out there. Ask openly, “Where are you getting your information? How are you applying this analysis by asking those questions & making those demands?  

SAGITTARIUS – Auditors who try to determine is committing crimes, whether embezzlement or money laundering, follow the money. Extending that metaphor Saturn & 2002-CR46 posit that cops looking for pimps follow johns, while cops looking for drug dealers . . . hover around jonesing users.  

CAPRICORN – Saturn & 2002-CR46 warn that you should use a filter or screening process before you decide to work for new clients. Demand references. Follow up with references submitted. Don’t be afraid to say, “No” – you can’t afford to work today for somebody who will be a deadbeat tomorrow.  

AQUARIUS – Too many people at work posing as professional superiors serve as decoys for the real bosses with all the money. As a result, you don’t know who is actually supervising anything that you do or, in fact, who is paying you. Saturn & 2002-CR46 say that’s okay – as long as they like you. But what if they really hate you? Take a step back & take a closer, much harder look.  

PISCES – Refer talented people to power brokers. Should you charge a fee? Maybe – but Saturn & 2002-CR46 ask you much more strategically what it is that you really want. Try to accumulate favors from those whom you know will deliver upon them.

@ 2002-CR46, officially named “Typhon”,  is an unnamed transneptunian object (TNO) discovered on February 2, 2002. The orbit of 2002-CR46 traverses between the orbit of Uranus out past the orbit of Pluto.

2002-VR130% in Leo squares1 2002-CR46* in Scorpio opposite2 Uranus in Taurus from June 28 to September 23, 2018, after which 2002-VR130% in Leo squares1 2002-CR46* in Scorpio until December 14, 2018. The party line from management dictates that everybody on the team is working towards the same goal, but this is rarely the case. Indeed, in cases both benign & nefarious, the loyalties of many individuals on “the team” bear no relationship to their current official affiliation whatsoever. Some rookies just starting with the company as a result of that company’s loyalty to specific academic institutions all hail from the same fraternity. Certain athletes sick of playing on a loser pad their numbers at the expense of the losing franchise, disobeying direct orders of managers, coaches & owners, to get themselves traded to a potential championship winner before the trading deadline – ideally, to the team where one’s best friend from (the neighborhood) (high school) (rookie year) now makes a killing on endorsement deals. The co-star of the film dislikes the producer, director & script but fawns all over the A-list star who picks & chooses future colleagues while spinning their wheels on these worthless B-list projects. One particularly large corporate client provides so much business to one specific law firm that the entire intellectual property litigation team uproots from its employer to form its own firm. Overall, when some public relations director asserts that everybody on the team serves a niche function in pursuit of the same goals, realize that such a proclamation may be a mandate based upon willfully wishful thinking rather than a reality. Really: You act according to your own interests – once you can identify what they are amidst the maze of conflicting interests clouding the overall group endeavor. What makes you think that everybody else isn’t doing the same – whether such self-interest is enlightened or not?  

ARIES – Disturbingly, 2002-VR130, 2002-CR46 & Uranus notice a correlation with how animated certain peers act with all of your peers & teammates & how secretly but aggressively they promote their own interests against those peers. It is almost as if these animated peers seek to sink the ship once they jump it – except, more likely, nobody is on a ship. Remain alert. Determine if & how you can lose money as the result of the dynamic of this extremely strategic deceit. Once this analysis is complete, further your own interests by acting upon your own, newly formed, agenda of self-interest.  

TAURUS – The time has come to tell a family member who affiliates with sworn family enemies that you will punish that family member if that family member continues to associate with those enemies. While there is no way to predict what this wayward family member will do next, 2002-VR130, 2002-CR46 & Uranus demand that you fulfill your duties to the rest of your family by letting this wayward family member know that their current actions & affiliations are not without consequences.  

GEMINI – Through some random & mundane verbal interchange, you learn that one of your very new best friends is related to, or knows, one of your work colleagues very well. 2002-VR130, 2002-CR46 & Uranus surmise that you will soon hear something about somebody that you would prefer not to know. Unfortunately, you are not at liberty to disregard this unwanted information. Indeed, you really have to ask yourself, “Does this mean anything to me?”  

CANCER – New relationship? Be very careful how you spend your money on, or in the presence of, this new sweetheart – as well as in the presence of this new sweetheart’s “friends.” Of course, what you choose to do with your own money is your own business – but 2002-VR130, 2002-CR46 & Uranus now force you to consider what your professional associates would think about what you choose to do with your own money – and with whom you choose to spend your time. Think beyond romance & sex – and what you must do in order to get some. Consider your public reputation.  

LEO – You take pains not to discuss with not only bosses, but in fact groups of friends whom you try to impress, those members of your family who not only do not share, but who actually oppose, your ways. 2002-VR130, 2002-CR46 & Uranus remind you that some of your friends know these family members already. However, be rest assured that none of your other friends will care – and your boss certainly has no interest in your family members– unless you irrationally demonstrate that you care too much.  

VIRGO – Word filters down from bureaucratic & institutional enemies that they oppose & hate you through third & fourth party proxies. While 2002-VR130, 2002-CR46 & Uranus strongly advise you to say absolutely nothing, let these bureaucratic & institutional enemies say & do whatever they want. You are not about to cut off your nose to spite your face – but if such enemies really want to do so, let them be your guest. Litigation for libel!  

LIBRA – Read Scorpio. You exude dark glamour to your professional associates & clients because of your nitty gritty, gumshoe, law enforcement, borderline criminal, Rockford File personal & professional connections. 2002-VR130, 2002-CR46 & Uranus recommend that you inform such glamour struck associates that these connections are as a result of your work – and not as a seedy extracurricular activity, “Hey! I bust people for graft – I don’t take it.”  

SCORPIO – Read Libra. 2002-VR130, 2002-CR46 & Uranus bluntly agree that law enforcement officials resent you either because of the company you keep or because of “friends” who “drop your name” or because of enemies who spread plausible, but not necessarily true, rumors about you. You have a lot of property, assets & money to protect – the last thing you need is to feel heat because of somebody else’s behavior & big mouth. Clean house.  

SAGITTARIUS – Because excursions into vice become legally & perhaps fatally treacherous under the current influence of 2002-VR130, 2002-CR46 & Uranus, you should decline all “social invitations” with the alibi, “I have to do overtime at my job.” It will be far easier to restrain your acute cravings if none of your friends are present, so that you will not need to, at that moment when circumstances become obviously & acutely dangerous, say, “No way.” Count those paperclips!  

CAPRICORN – Creditors now begin to accumulate in the pursuit of those old money bluebloods & former financial gods of an untouchable pantheon as those in the process of falling from the heights commence to declare bankruptcy. 2002-VR130, 2002-CR46 & Uranus therefore make it incumbent upon you to get in line & to get your money. As you do so, scan the financial markets for financially distressed & unjustly undervalued stocks. Buy low!  

AQUARIUS – Both declared & open rivals, and those who act like your friends but actively seek to corrupt your agenda, affiliate or do not affiliate with power brokers who intensely dislike, and attempt to limit, your freedom. You would know how to respond if anything before you was transparent & clear – but 2002-VR130, 2002-CR46 & Uranus qualify that you don’t need to respond. As long as you think, act & speak as pure as the driven snow, the difference between you & the self-evidently muddy waters of all that oppose you will be obvious to all. Purity of intent!  

PISCES – Gym rats: You know what effort you had to make for how long in order to get the results that you now embody. Employees: You know what you had to do to earn the money, property & luxuries you now enjoy. Now so as to protect yourself as steroids make a comeback, and to zero in on one of your professional peers who has just begun to sell coke or weed on the down low, 2002-VR130, 2002-CR46 & Uranus suggest that you “exchange ideas” with those whose progress seems far too accelerated to be genuine. Don’t compete – simply find out if others are giving you a cover story. If it smells bad, excuse yourself, hold your nose & walk away. Don’t tolerate “shadows.”

ARTICLE #9

Saturn in Capricorn trines@ Aphidas* in Virgo from June 12 to December 7, 2018. Unpleasant temperaments amongst both bosses & employees create hostilities across the divide. The core of the issue: A lack of mutual respect. An alternative for each social class: Team up in partnerships outside of assigned roles so that both boss & employee can do work the way that they want – if the bigger bosses allow it. Beware of factions.  

ARIES – Whether you are the boss or the employee, Saturn trine Aphidas discourages you in engaging in banter with the other unless your partner demonstrates they are trying to make you look good. Eschew one-upmanship.  

TAURUS – Read Virgo. Athletes & parents of student-athletes: Refrain from demonstrating disrespect to referees, umpires & authority figures. Whether or not such referees, umpires & authority figures are fools, jerks or tyrants, or whether or not they happen to be correct at the moment, Saturn trine Aphidas guarantee that they will have a good memory – especially about those who mouth off to them. Fly under the radar. Draw no negative attention to yourself.  

GEMINI – If you are having difficulties banking remotely via computer, then Saturn trine Aphidas advises you not to force it. Go to a brick & mortar location to interface with a customer service representative who will help you with the problem. Do your best to get personal service – live & in person, not by telephone or (God forbid!) instant messaging chat – if you are having problems with technology.  

CANCER – Is sarcasm the primary means of communication between you & your spouse or business partner? If so, then Saturn trine Aphidas recommends that you choose a communication vehicle which is much less toxic. At some point, you or your partner will misunderstand each other – and conflict will be easier to resolve if what is misunderstood is the relatively anodyne phrase, “The final answer is twelve,” rather than “You always behave like an obnoxious jerk when a stranger enters the room.”  

LEO – “The employees listen to the boss,” says Saturn trine Aphidas, “but the boss listens to the client.” Don’t confuse the apple with the orange!  

VIRGO – Read Taurus. Student-athletes & their parents: You kid may hate your coach. You may think that your kid’s coach is a selfish, ruthless jerk. However, Saturn trine Aphidas reminds you that the coach is not about the kids – the coach is about the program. If you really want to threaten anybody, threaten the school – but only after you determine whether it would hurt the school in any way to take your kids to another institution to, of course, “get an education.”  

LIBRA – A fact you uncover about an institution should serve as an inherent rebuke about that institution itself – and Saturn trine Aphidas confirms that it does. Should you keep this in your standard repertoire for each & every time that you must criticize this specific institution? It depends. Are you a journalist or a lawyer? Then, absolutely. Are you a vendor or customer? Well – aren’t you supposed to be working with this institution in good faith for your mutual benefit? Really – what’s the ultimate point of your relationship with this institution?  

SCORPIO – A broker, advisor or mentor can give you all sorts of advice of what to do with your business or your money, but Saturn trine Aphidas denotes that only you can call the shots to make any of those things happen. Therefore, you must streamline communication with your broker, advisor or mentor when you agree with them. Say, “I agree with your analysis – but what do I do, and whom do I delegate to do what you want me to do, next, then next, then next, then next?” Get it all spelled out for you from the jump.  

SAGITTARIUS – Bosses need a big chunk of your free time. Although overtime is involved, Saturn trine Aphidas declares that bosses do not want to dictate the time & place where you will do that work that they need – that is way too totalitarian & heavy-handed. Bosses make this offer so that you will give up the time that they need of your own volition; you will put your own head on the platter, along with some colorful vegetables, after another employee cuts it off for you. There is no way around this. Comply.  

CAPRICORN – Whether it is a judge, a lawyer, a regulator, a compliance official, a journalist or an academic, Saturn trine Aphidas reminds you that this individual is now judging you – and not the other way around. Speak to facts as you understand them. Commence your assertions with the disclaimer, “I am not passing judgment on individuals, but this is how I understand these facts in relationship to our normal protocol.” Protect yourself in the clinches.  

AQUARIUS – No greater status symbol exists within the city of Los Angeles than the trophy of one’s own individual automobile. While there might be a very good reason, in certain circles, that it is critically important to rely upon one’s Lamborghini to make one’s way in life, Saturn trine Aphidas advises you not to burden yourself with rules of Social Darwinists that do not address how you have chosen to live your life – for your entire life. Focus upon your duties, responsibilities & commitments to those to whom you are bound. Disregard “niceties.”  

PISCES – Your spouse or business partner plans to challenge the intelligence & savoir faire of a professional or political associate. Before they do so, Saturn trine Aphidas recommends that you request of your spouse or business partner, “Please give this individual a chance to look good – at least until we both know how we really feel about them.”

@ Aphidas, a centaur planet which crosses across the orbits of Saturn & Neptune, was discovered in December 1999 and named in October 2017. The centaur Phorbas, disgusted because his fellow centaur had passed out, drunk, rather than fighting the Lapiths during the wedding feast of Pirithous, killed Aphidas with a javelin, with black blood pouring from Aphidas’s throat into his wine cup. For information on how to interpret Aphidas, formerly 1999-XX143, note reference to Philip Sedgwick below.

@ A Trine is a harmonious aspect between or amongst planets transiting signs of like element (elements being Fire, Earth, Air & Water).

ARTICLE #10

Uranus in Taurus opposes@ 2002-CR46* in Scorpio from May 17 to October 1, 2018. The electronic money trail of criminal suspects allegedly engaged in the trafficking of various types of contraband yields, as it will, more than the usual suspects. Is this woman listed as a passenger on three immediately successive international flights, in one day, a player, a victim, a mule or a decoy? Is this man, now wiring cash into an account into which only another family member had deposited or withdrawn complicit, liable or oblivious? And, “Isn’t that the name of that prominent politician from . . . Miami? Guadalajara? Who is that, anyway?”  

ARIES – Cash transactions provide no records accountable to your name. Checks or credit cards provide records accountable to your name – because that is the point. Therefore, Uranus opposite 2002-CR46 exhorts you to be alert for those who use cash, checks or credit cards when it is clearly inappropriate. Ask yourself, “Who are they trying to deceive? Why?”  

TAURUS – Don’t let new acquaintances or business partners try to manipulate social situations so that you become affiliated with a lot of people whom you don’t know. If such new acquaintances or business partners invite you to a party, fine – that’s a social affair where you can meet whom you want based upon your own free will. But Uranus opposite 2002-CR46 warns that your affiliation with such new people engineered by such new acquaintances or business partners is not addressed towards your better interests but to some unseen third party for some hidden agenda executed by said new acquaintances or business partners. Do not let third parties choose your associates for you without your consent – if not actually against your will.  

GEMINI – Accountants, auditors: Uranus opposite 2002-CR46 denotes that all that you need to know about employees’ or colleagues’ honest or dishonesty is contained in electronic paper trails of all of their individual & collective account statements.  

CANCER – Look – Uranus opposite 2002-CR46 asks, “Amongst this group of people, do you want to network for business or do you want to party & to hunt down a mate for sex? You can do one or the other – but if you try to do them both, you will inevitably create a really big mess.  

LEO – Professional changes force you to react quickly on such a non-stop basis that you are more enervated & stressed than exhausted. For that reason, Uranus opposite 2002-CR46 warns that you will have very little patience with family members & roommates whose primary ambition in life is to do no work & to party all the time with truly worthless friends. Count to ten before you demonstrate that famous Leo temper!  

VIRGO – You ask different questions of different people to learn who is withholding information from whom & who is sharing secrets behind your back. Even if you get the answers to your questions relatively quickly, Uranus opposite 2002-CR46 advises you not to confront anybody just yet. Keep score – and find out what dirt-bag players try to do next.  

LIBRA – As much as you would like to discover the full truth of what is now transpiring, Uranus opposite 2002-CR46 exhorts you to get away from people who engage in corruption. The number of people involved is increasing – and the black hole is gaining extreme gravity. Bail out!  

SCORPIO – If a partner or rival gets a little too aggressive or pushy for your comfort, then Uranus opposite 2002-CR46 recommends that you remind that individual that they are outnumbered. That should work!  

SAGITTARIUS – A very funny colleague in your workplace harbors some very shady connections. While there is no reason why you should refrain yourself from amusement & entertainment by such charismatic characters, Uranus opposite 2002-CR46 whispers in your ear that you stand to lose professionally if bosses believe that you owe your loyalties to borderline criminal class clowns.  

CAPRICORN – Writers, painters, sculptors: Critics will misinterpret your new works of innovative genius under the current influence of Uranus opposite 2002-CR46. As long as they stand united against you for ideological reasons, the public will understand. Rebel with a cause!  

AQUARIUS – Network with real estate agents. Furthermore, whether your primary priority is local grocery shopping or schools for your children, Uranus opposite 2002-CR46 empowers you to research all that you need in order to liberate you & your family completely by finding, then buying into, the perfect place to live.  

PISCES – A lot of your work colleagues don’t want to get arrested, either! Not when everybody is making such thick money. But you can all laugh about it. Uranus opposite 2002-CR46 insists that you can – no matter how dark the joke is. What are you doing that is illegal? It’s only a joke. (Thank God!) .

* 2002-CR46, officially named “Typhon”,  is an unnamed transneptunian object (TNO) discovered on February 2, 2002. The orbit of 2002-CR46 traverses between the orbit of Uranus out past the orbit of Pluto.

@ An Opposition is a disharmonious 180 degree aspect between or amongst planets transiting signs of like modality (modalities being Cardinal – Aries, Cancer, Libra, Capricorn; Fixed – Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, Aquarius; & Mutable – Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius, Pisces).

ARTICLE #11

Jupiter in Scorpio sextiles1 Chariklo< conjunct2 2001-KF77> in Capricorn from April 4 to September 4, 2018, during which Jupiter in Scorpio sextiles1 Amycus^ in Capricorn from May 12 to August 29, 2018. Some NFL football coaches believe that, with one good fullback in their backfield, their defense can maintain a two-touchdown lead from the beginning of the third quarter to hold their opponents to zero points for the rest of the game. However, unless that coach has a fullback who can make several consecutive carries from their own 20 yard line to gain first down after first down after first down to culminate in a touchdown on the first possession of the third quarter, eating up at least seven minutes on the clock while scoring seven points, any capable NFL offense will be in a position, via one quick strike downfield from quarterback to wide receiver, to cut that lead in half long before the fourth quarter begins. The turtle often beats the hare when the hare plays the game way too conservatively!  

ARIES – If you maintain very little professional overhead & very few ongoing professional deadlines, Jupiter, Chariklo, 2001-KF77 & Amycus dare you to take risks – but only those risks where you can lose almost nothing except your time but where you can score very big windfall profit or priceless prestige. Don’t worry about whether or not this is a one-shot deal or not. Money is money – and a win goes in the W column!  

TAURUS – Laymen in the public expect judges, lawyers & cops to behave conservatively at all times. However, when the stakes are high enough, and the situation warrants it, and especially now under the current influence of Jupiter, Chariklo, 2001-KF77 & Amycus, judges, lawyers & cops are inclined to, and will, take, extremely radical chances. Know what you are getting into long before you make any specific requests.  

GEMINI – Certain officers & employees of your company make radically exorbitant expenditures with your company’s money far beyond their own or the company’s means. Jupiter, Chariklo, 2001-KF77 & Amycus demand that you put an immediate halt to this spontaneous liquidation of jointly held resources – before you launch an investigation for the real reasons behind such a potentially destructive & embarrassing travesty.  

CANCER – Jupiter, Chariklo, 2001-KF77 & Amycus favor single Crabs seeking to indulge their promiscuity. After all, there are lot of freaks out there – why not get a taste of it now? Conversely – for both married & single people– the less people with whom you have sex, the quicker you will be able to track any & all communicable diseases which afflict you as a result of your sex life. And, as for those who are married, you can always indulge in fantasy by turning off the lights, by calling your spouse by a different name & by watching some porn.  

LEO – Jupiter, Chariklo, 2001-KF77 & Amycus declare that you will win the loyalty of younger professional employees forever if you instruct them to pursue an extreme but firmly directed flight of fancy distinctly entrenched within their specific professional skill. However, you do not make this assignment gratuitously – you do have a very specific end & goal in mind. But you intend to play to the strengths of those who flaunt unique strengths – and the best & brightest amongst them will show you exactly what they can do for your private viewing pleasure. Wheelhouse!  

VIRGO – Some teenagers, but especially student athletes, and more especially student athlete alpha males, not only indulge reckless ways, but actually live for the opportunity to do something so outrageous so as to ascend to the pantheon of the most insane reckless teenagers since the beginning of time immemorial. Jupiter, Chariklo, 2001-KF77 & Amycus confirm that you can neither dissuade them nor can you stop them. If their insane & reckless act merits punishment – such as the heinously violent act perpetrated by Ben Meechum, the son of the namesake (protagonist) (antagonist) Lieutenant Colonel Wilbur "Bull" Meechum in Pat Conroy’s The Great Santini – punish that teenager without mercy. Even so, realize that, all punishments aside . . . such teenagers will brag about what they do right now, not only for years to come, but for the rest of their lives.

LIBRA – Family members, neighbors & powerful local politicians engage in a lot of loose talk with you because they trust you. Now, Jupiter, Chariklo, 2001-KF77 & Amycus denote that that loose talk becomes even more reckless. Reinforce both your detachment but also your nonjudgmental blessing by asserting, as you leave, “Give me a call if any of you guys need a good lawyer.” A friend in need!  

SCORPIO – Your instructions, demands & orders appear, to those to whom they are addressed, flippant, reckless & dangerous. You already know this. Furthermore, Jupiter, Chariklo, 2001-KF77 & Amycus confirm that those instructions, demands & orders are, in fact, flippant, reckless & dangerous. As for those to whom those instructions, demands & orders are addressed: They knew what they were getting into when you first hired them – the kitchen was just as hot then as it is right now. The time is now or never – fish or cut bait!  

SAGITTARIUS – Both criminal masterminds & undercover cops preparing sting ops plan a big score under the current influence of Jupiter, Chariklo, 2001-KF77 & Amycus. Whichever side you choose, remember: “The game” only really ends . . . when the cops win.  

CAPRICORN – Radical political allies need to know the ultimate consequences of their most obtuse & impractical ideas. Therefore, Jupiter, Chariklo, 2001-KF77 & Amycus empower you to spell out such consequences in unadulterated terms. Be careful, however: Realize that, with some political allies, what you posit as the most natural conclusion to the starkest premise may be what the most extreme amongst your allies ultimately wants to hear.

AQUARIUS – Chaos rules in your workplace & amongst all colleagues working with companies & vendors remote from your offices because big bosses make extremely taxing & overwhelming demands upon everybody under the current influence of Jupiter, Chariklo, 2001-KF77 & Amycus. Make no mistake about it: Big bosses intend to make the weak, the nervous & the cheating crack under extreme & irrational pressure. Keep your head down in the office lest a carrier pigeon fly directly into your face – and poke you in the eye with its beak.  

PISCES – Political & professional allies who want to take enormous risks ask you if you want a part of the action. Indeed, those allies, as well as Jupiter, Chariklo, 2001-KF77 & Amycus, already know your answer in advance. Why? Because you are the go-to player. You are the superstar who will make it all happen. Ten yard penalty on the subsequent kick-off for excessive celebration – hot-dogging & showboating!    

< Chariklo, named after the wife of the centaur Chiron who enjoyed a close friendship with Pallas Athena, was discovered in February 1997 & named in September 1999. Chariklo helps Chiron to bridge the gap in consciousness between Saturn & Uranus, reminding us that we have to employ vision, perception & imagination when we find no leeway & no loopholes in the entrenched status quo.  

> 2001-KF77 is an unnamed centaur planet discovered on May 22, 2001. The orbit of 2001-KF77 traverses from just beyond the orbit of Uranus out past the orbit of Neptune. For information on how to interpret 2001-KF77, note reference to Philip Sedgwick below.  

^ Amycus, a centaur planet which crosses across the orbits of Uranus & Neptune between the orbit of Saturn & the more remote portion of the orbit of Pluto, was discovered in April 2002 and named in December 2005. Amycus was the first centaur to engage in battle with the Lapiths by smashing the face of the Lapith Celadon with a candelabrum stripped from the inmost wedding shrine. For information on how to interpret Amycus, formerly 2002-GB10, note reference to Philip Sedgwick below.

Uranus in Taurus trines* Aphidas! in Virgo trines* Pholus@ in Capricorn from May 15 to June 9, 2018, after which Uranus in Taurus trines* Aphidas! in Virgo until September 23, 2018. The envisioned & perceived physical or financial innovation remains a pipedream in the minds of reluctant bosses until a technical wizard manifests that pipedream as a self-evident fait accompli. Will that innovator & technical wizard be satisfied applying that innovation to real life professional business situations, or will they instead become addicted to attempting to manifest a series of half-baked ideas? That depends upon whether or not those reluctant bosses actually attempt to apply that innovation to actual recurring business situations so that they can keep both innovator & technical genius focused upon bottom-line business in the real world.  

ARIES – A failed innovation in painting or dance becomes part of a learning curve in the artistic process, but Uranus, Aphidas & Pholus qualify that the failure of an innovative financial transaction mechanism or financial instrument could represent a lawsuit ending in bankruptcy. Realize from the beginning your true margin for error – and do not exceed it.  

TAURUS – Progress becomes much easier with much less pressure under the current influence of Uranus, Aphidas & Pholus if you have skills & resources to allow you to solve problems or to execute transactions with many different methods or using many different resources. Save your veritable Ace in the hole or hundred dollar Benji for that moment when it is truly necessary.  

GEMINI – Accountants, auditors, insurance executives: A duplicative & redundant, or conversely, terse, truncated & compartmentalized, accounting system, could be honest – but Uranus, Aphidas & Pholus, like you, suspect that this idiosyncratic system serves as a cover for unreported transactions. Don’t try to account for every dollar. Instead, identify “types” of hidden transaction points which obscure either or both credits or debits.  

CANCER – Commuters from one train station in one city remain loyal to one bank, internet service or phone provider, while commuters from a second train station in the same or a nearby city remain simultaneously just as loyal to another. Uranus, Aphidas & Pholus ask, “Is this a phenomenon where commuters spontaneously make a choice for any or all of these businesses or are all of these businesses the only choices for all these commuters no matter what their preference?” Furthermore, no matter the answer to these questions: Does anybody have the ability or insight as to how to break the patterns already established?  

LEO – Bosses don’t really care too much about innovative strategies. However, Uranus, Aphidas & Pholus declare that bosses will be interested in any strategy, innovative or otherwise, which yields an unusual string of self-evidently successful & significant statistics – and those individuals who can generate them.  

VIRGO – It is clear by the way that foreign countries write their laws that your ability to do business there as a foreigner is subject to the discretion of specific powerful individuals. In this context, Uranus, Aphidas & Pholus declare that you can make the progress that you desire if you can negotiate while making it conspicuous that you will never attempt to usurp power & control from anybody. Nobody likes a smart ass!  

LIBRA – New sources & new methods of municipal corruption involving high technology & real estate will plague many international cities under the current influence of Uranus, Aphidas & Pholus. You will have an opportunity to participate in or thwart such corruption in your own sphere. Be the hero or heroine – but, whether hero or heroine, or notorious villain, you will be . . . spectacular.  

SCORPIO – How can you spell out the consequences of a specious business project to a stubborn partner who has already made their incorrect decision? In effect, Uranus, Aphidas & Pholus assert that you can’t – you can merely point out pros & cons, best & worst case scenarios. Only a more informed common ally who has analyzed statistics & facts for a definitive conclusion can tell this partner, “If you really think that is going to happen, then you are living on a cloud.”  

SAGITTARIUS – You & your work group must put in extra time, perhaps even on your own time, to complete a deadline for a boss or a client. Until you complete that deadline to that boss’s or client’s satisfaction, Uranus, Aphidas & Pholus warn that you might have to put in more of your own hours up to an indeterminate amount of time – or, if you are a private contractor, your client might not pay you. Put as much time in to create the best possible finished product that you can right now. If the product is not ready, do not try to fool anybody – come clean.  

CAPRICORN – Writers: No matter if you are almost finished or you are only just beginning, Uranus, Aphidas & Pholus encourage the Goat to sell either their manuscript or their idea for a manuscript to a literary agent or publishing house. Also, publish video essays of yourself expostulating on You Tube so as to cultivate a “video persona.”  

AQUARIUS – New banks in your neighborhood or region represent new customers & new clients for different larger corporations than the traditional local banks. What all this means, long story short, according to the current influence of Uranus, Aphidas & Pholus, is that this new phalanx of financial & professional interests will change the financial & professional profile of your neighborhood & region over the next five years. Pay attention. Do not rest on laurels.  

PISCES – Your blunt verbal assessment of the local area under the current influence of Uranus, Aphidas & Pholus changes may peoples’ attitudes. However, don’t make the mistake of believing that everybody agrees. Remember: Powerful people are listening –

@ Aphidas, a centaur planet which crosses across the orbits of Saturn & Neptune, was discovered in December 1999 and named in October 2017. The centaur Phorbas, disgusted because his fellow centaur had passed out, drunk, rather than fighting the Lapiths during the wedding feast of Pirithous, killed Aphidas with a javelin, with black blood pouring from Aphidas’s throat into his wine cup. For information on how to interpret Aphidas, formerly 1999-XX143, note reference to Philip Sedgwick below.

* Pholus, named after the centaur who accidentally died because mighty Hercules was thirsty, was discovered in 1992 & named in 1996. Pholus bridges the gap in consciousness between Saturn & Neptune, forcing us mere mortals to realize that even our most severe discipline is worthless when God wishes to teach us a lesson.

ARTICLE #13

Chariklo< conjunct1 2001-KF77> in Capricorn sextiles2 Neptune in Pisces from May 16 to November 29, 2018, during which Amycus^ in Capricorn sextiles2 Neptune in Pisces from October 3, 2018 to February 8, 2020. Masses of people know nothing about high-level governmental or business affairs – they only know (or think that they know) how such affairs affect them individually. All people, however, know how they feel about those governmental or business affairs – and, unless times are absurdly prosperous for absolutely everybody, most people will have myriad complaints about such governmental or business affairs, precisely because they lack not only knowledge of such affairs but in fact any direct control of them. Only when high-profile public figures themselves vent in public about those very specific issues which cause masses of people clear, immediate & interminable pain will such masses of people express, not their ideas, but in fact their emotions, by projecting histrionic & irrational devotion to those high-profile public figures who have stooped to demagoguery.

ARIES – Ranting & raving, on the street, at the gym, in a bar, within a movie theater – really, it is an annoyance, but you easily tune it out. However, when bosses who bring in business to your company & who pay your salary start ranting & raving within your professional workplace, about issues which affect your company’s bottom line or the in the presence of strangers & even clients, you get worried – and Chariklo, Amycus, 2001-KF77 & Neptune say, “With good reason.” Do you intuit a sense of repressed alarm forcing its way to the surface? Do not disregard such psychological cues. Develop, but do not yet execute, a “Plan B.”  

TAURUS – No matter whether he or she is hero or goat, a cop in the media spotlight is, 99 times out of 100, a curse – either the cop did something wrong & is being dragged through the mud or the cop endured death or massive assault to save lives or to catch criminals within the line of duty. While such polarization may seem unfair, Chariklo, Amycus, 2001-KF77 & Neptune implore you to reflect upon the absolute black-and-white, good-or-evil, redemption-or-damnation inherent with the archetype of the cop. How can one human body encapsulate both the hope of absolutely liberation or the despair of non-negotiable incarceration – all while enduring the unconditional love or hatred of the euphoric or anguished masses?  

GEMINI – Employers, business partners & even spouses are enduring ongoing shrinking incoming revenue. As a result, Chariklo, Amycus, 2001-KF77 & Neptune announce that, sooner or later, such employers, business partners & even spouses will be demanding of you: Work more hours, make less money, give better value, save that money. For best results, cede to such employers’, business partners’ & even spouses’ demands . . . before they make them.  

CANCER – A spouse, business partner or rival now reacts to, and comments upon, worldly chaos – and, sometimes, in devastatingly sarcastic fashion. However, because Cancer the Crab is the most sensitive sign of the zodiac, Chariklo, Amycus, 2001-KF77 & Neptune worry that you take such spouse, partner or rival much too personally. Remember Archie Bunker, the protagonist in Norman Lear’s sitcom All in the Family? Archie Bunker did not discriminate – he hated everybody equally. Take it from whence it comes.  

LEO – You know what work needs to be done, and how, in your professional workplace, how long it should take. Chariklo, Amycus, 2001-KF77 & Neptune empower you to call the shots, and, if necessary, in order to eradicate any corrupt proclivities within your professional colleagues, to slash & burn. Don’t worry about hurting anybody’s feelings – people work to earn money, not to receive flattery. Lay down the law – then enforce it.  

VIRGO – Many media outlets, superstar millionaire athletes & elite celebrities had not only their own opinions, but also their own facts, and also (thank you, Kellyanne Conway), their own alternative facts, about who is at fault & who is to blame, not only for the long-term failure of the New York Knicks to develop into a championship basketball team, but for the conflagration wherein five security guards ejected former New York Knick great Charles Oakley from Madison Square Garden during a regular season home game against the Los Angeles Clippers in early February 2017 as Oakley sat one, two or four rows (depending upon the media account) behind New York Knick owner James Dolan, with whom Oakley had been feuding for over ten years. No matter where you may stand in the public conflagration at Madison Square Garden (Dolan v. Oakley!), Chariklo, Amycus, 2001-KF77 & Neptune implore you to take pause: Realize that, whether James Dolan was directly involved or not, the entire infrastructure of the New York Knicks basketball organization opposed one man while a stadium full of people & various simultaneous media outlets watched. Don’t put yourself in position where you fight the power at a time when the entire power structure has a vested interest in manifesting physical opposition to you personally.  

LIBRA – Although Spanish-American philosopher George Santayana famously posited, “Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it,” Chariklo, Amycus, 2001-KF77 & Neptune insist that people believe what they want to believe. All you can do is state, truthfully, the facts about the history of your family, city, state, province or nation, as you understand them & as they have been reported. Accept that knowledge, enlightenment, wisdom, ignorance & self-deceit are all personal choices.  

SCORPIO – Your spoken words – instructions, jokes, observations, comments – can catalyze relationships, businesses, institutions and, in fact, yourself, under the current influence of Chariklo, Amycus, 2001-KF77 & Neptune to act in precipitous, irresponsible & extremely destructive ways. Consider consequences – not only as they affect you but also as they affect those who are simply not as smart as you – before saying exactly what you think.  

SAGITTARIUS – If you want to succeed, to survive or to destroy yourself, Chariklo, Amycus, 2001-KF77 & Neptune confirm that you will do so – and the key lies in how you save, allocate & spend your money. What is at stake: How do you choose to suffer? Do you deny yourself short-term pleasure for long-term security? Do you sacrifice indulgence for investment? Do you spend all now in order to die penniless later – or even sooner? What choices are you making for yourself?  

CAPRICORN – You are well aware that your approval or disapproval can bring about permanent instantaneous change that can establish individual careers or destroy people irrevocably. As a result, Chariklo, Amycus, 2001-KF77 & Neptune fully realize that you will choose to do the former or the latter based upon whether other people deserve approval or opprobrium – and that you will tell other people that they deserve what they deserve as you do so.  

AQUARIUS – Certain bosses who wish to slash & burn your professional infrastructure in order to cut costs do not tolerate advice. However, Chariklo, Amycus, 2001-KF77 & Neptune state that you do not wish to give those bosses advice. You simply wish to say, “If you do A – and everybody knows that you want to do A – then B will happen.” This isn’t advice – this is the explanation between cause & effect. Bosses will respect such explanations – as long as you do not tell them what to do. Make them think it was all their idea!  

PISCES – While certain flamboyant business clients are not your “bread & butter” but strictly once in a blue moon windfall profit, they are quite entertaining individuals. In fact, Chariklo, Amycus, 2001-KF77 & Neptune surmise that this is what truly motivates them, “Let me entertain you.” Given that they will also pay you for the privilege, where is the harm? Just don’t confuse such entertaining individuals with your daily bread. !    

< Chariklo, named after the wife of the centaur Chiron who enjoyed a close friendship with Pallas Athena, was discovered in February 1997 & named in September 1999. Chariklo helps Chiron to bridge the gap in consciousness between Saturn & Uranus, reminding us that we have to employ vision, perception & imagination when we find no leeway & no loopholes in the entrenched status quo.  

> 2001-KF77 is an unnamed centaur planet discovered on May 22, 2001. The orbit of 2001-KF77 traverses from just beyond the orbit of Uranus out past the orbit of Neptune. For information on how to interpret 2001-KF77, note reference to Philip Sedgwick below.  

^ Amycus, a centaur planet which crosses across the orbits of Uranus & Neptune between the orbit of Saturn & the more remote portion of the orbit of Pluto, was discovered in April 2002 and named in December 2005. Amycus was the first centaur to engage in battle with the Lapiths by smashing the face of the Lapith Celadon with a candelabrum stripped from the inmost wedding shrine. For information on how to interpret Amycus, formerly 2002-GB10, note reference to Philip Sedgwick below.

Neptune in Pisces squares1 Asbolus< conjunct2 1996-TL66> in Gemini opposite3 2002-GZ32! in Sagittarius from May 6 to July 18, 2018, after which 2002-GZ32! in Sagittarius squares1 Neptune in Pisces from May 6 to October 20, 2018. The increase of scale & organization of retail store theft & black market distribution can augment the psychological pressure upon loss prevention enforcement to daily, untenable, life or death stress. This spike in loss prevention paranoia occurs concurrent with the market dominance of amazon.com, which uses statistical matrices to gauge performance of every employee on the most minute microeconomic level. Is this “Amazonian” business model sustainable in the long term – without some “Amabot” in some godforsaken Edge City warehouse going spectacularly & murderously postal?

ARIES – Crowded retail establishments create enormous & needless psychological pressure contained within the pressure cooker of an enclosed room that can, for no good or important reason, turn violent. Therefore, to avoid pressure that neither you nor anybody else needs or wants, Neptune, Asbolus, 1996-TL66 & 2002-GZ32 strongly urge you to shop when stores are empty. “No sales?” you complain. Likely – but, also, no casualties. Calm & collected – and safe!  

TAURUS – Whether you are executing transaction at a store, shopping in many different stores in one trip or writing a series of checks to pay your bills, Neptune, Asbolus, 1996-TL66 & 2002-GZ32 recommend that you give yourself a large & unhurried expanse of time to exchange money & product slowly, leisurely & carefully. Don’t let pushy people rush you for any reason. Employ conspicuous courtesy throughout all entire interpersonal transactions in order to slow them down. Maintain a protocol of conspicuous control.  

GEMINI – Some pedestrians & automobiles speed up when the sidewalks & roads get crowded in order to outrace the backlog. Because such individuals are, at heart, criminal, Neptune, Asbolus, 1996-TL66 & 2002-GZ32 encourage you to use your own style of aggression to get firmly in their way to force them to slow down before they hurt anybody – as long as you can do so without putting yourself in harm’s way. Channel your own “inner traffic cop.”

CANCER – Because disrespectful treatment from retail store clerks, crowd control employees & transit officials (as well as, of course, customers) can degenerate into confrontation, hostile episodes and, in worst case scenarios, riots, Neptune, Asbolus, 1996-TL66 & 2002-GZ32 urge you, whether as a customer or an employee, to demand and, in fact, to extract, courtesy – whether those with whom you have dealings are willing to give it to you or not.  

LEO – Salespeople: The market environment for pitching new clients under the current influence of Neptune, Asbolus, 1996-TL66 & 2002-GZ32 is plainly awful. Delay sales efforts – especially targeted towards those whom you have not previously contacted – until after the New Year.  

VIRGO – Everybody now arguing is guilty. Therefore, unless professional superiors directly request that you intervene, Neptune, Asbolus, 1996-TL66 & 2002-GZ32 advise you to let others dishonorably thrash amidst the anarchy of their negotiations by themselves without any help from you.  

LIBRA – The current perversity of the legal process impels you to speak truth to power. However, Neptune, Asbolus, 1996-TL66 & 2002-GZ32 counter that it behooves you to remain silent & to withdraw. Let legal deformity boomerang against the legally deformed. Get out of the way.  

SCORPIO – False friends who have betrayed you want to engineer a confrontation in order to enmesh you in their criminal or legal spider web. Therefore, as long as you know that their psychological manipulation is merely another low-minded ploy designed to save their own skin, Neptune, Asbolus, 1996-TL66 & 2002-GZ32 will give you all the necessary courage to steel your spirit with self-protective indifference . . . and to walk away.  

SAGITTARIUS – Low-minded, malicious enemies play nefarious mind games in order to induce you to make a kneejerk, self-destructive, potentially illegal response. Neptune, Asbolus, 1996-TL66 & 2002-GZ32 advise you to withdraw from public interactions as much as possible & to get as much rest, sleep & exercise that you need so that you may correctly interpret the words & actions of such enemies for exactly what they are: A bad faith attempt to create as much trouble, turmoil & damage as possible.  

CAPRICORN – Bosses, merchants, law enforcement: Not only is now the best time for a vastly wide-ranging sting operation, but Neptune, Asbolus, 1996-TL66 & 2002-GZ32 advise that, if you can, you allow criminals to get away with as much as humanly possible to see exactly how far they intend to go. Shut down organized criminal operations as completely, thoroughly & permanently as possible from point of origin through point of sale. Eradicate moral rot at its root.  

AQUARIUS – Academics, intellectuals: Avoid casual references or extended forays into discussions of popular culture, including popular music, film or television. While this may cut down on the ultimate scale of your audience, Neptune, Asbolus, 1996-TL66 & 2002-GZ32 counter that it will also prevent the less intellectually committed from misconstruing your message, whether unwittingly . . . or deliberately. Remain the high brow on the high road.  

PISCES – Using your job as an escape from the torment of your personal illusions & disturbing episodes within your nuclear family can jeopardize your job security under the current influence of Neptune, Asbolus, 1996-TL66 & 2002-GZ32 if such torment & tumult becomes too overwhelming. Your job is neither retreat nor refuge – your job is where you earn your living. Don’t burden the reality of your daily bread with the unfathomable weight of nebulous phantasm & acutely painful emotion. Seek help with demons so that you may be able to continue to serve bosses.

< Asbolus, named after the psychic centaur whose wisdom was completely ignored while his foolishness was universally emulated, was discovered in April 1995 & named in September 1999. Asbolus, which embodies the higher mind in the lower self, bridges the gap in consciousness between Jupiter & Neptune, warning us not to take our “leaders” at face value.

> 1996-TL66 is an unnamed scattered-disk object (SDO) transneptunian object (TNO) discovered on October 9, 1996. SDOs are far more remote in space than even Varuna or Pluto, the outermost planets in our current solar system; 1996-TL66, an SDO, is also a TNO because, at perihelion, it hovers around the orbits of Neptune. For information on how to interpret 1996-TL66, note reference to Jonathan Dunn below.

postulates that 1996-TL66 should be named Nero, after the emperor who presided over the fall of Rome.

! 2002-GZ32 is an unnamed centaur planet discovered on April 13, 2002. The orbit of 2002-GZ32 traverses across the orbit of Uranus and just before the orbit of Neptune. For information on how to interpret 2002-GZ32, note reference to Philip Sedgwick below.
