The #Astrology of the Solar System: Astronomers Go Too Far

Solar system to be named after Lord of the Rings characters

Planets Named After LOTR?

(Astrology Explored) It was bad enough the International Astronomy Union, upon the discovery of Sedna, went a little crazy and started reclassifying planets. Saying that size does matter, Pluto, the master of domination and control was reclassified a “dwarf planet.” Way to emasculate the lord of hell, IAU. Bad enough that the IAU cast out the perfectly lovely name of Xena and stuck that planet with the sucky name and mythology of Sedna. Now the CBBC (a division of the BBC) floated the information that astronomers are going to rename all the planets in the solar system after the characters in J.R.R. Tolkien’s Lord of the Rings.

Here is the list of names:

Mercury – Merry

Venus – Pippin

Earth – Gandalf

Mars – Frodo

Jupiter – Legolas

Saturn – Saruman

Uranus – Gimli

Neptune – Aragorn

Pluto – Sauron

Sedna – Shadowfax?

As astrologers know, the functions of the planets revolve around the mythology of names they receive. It’s obvious that the assigned names are totally off base. For instance, Neptune is listed as Aragorn, while any astrologer worth his or her salt would put Aragorn with the planet of the king, Jupiter. Venus is assigned to a male character, which is ludicrous. It’s obvious Venus should be Arwen. Sedna should be Galadriel, not Shadowfax. And metrosexual and sexually ambiguous Legolas should properly be assigned to Neptune.

When will the madness end?
