Farewell Pluto...


Yeah, I know I'm a little late to the game with my Pluto post. But earlier I was looking for the Newsweek back-page narrative from last week, or maybe the week before, because I read it at the hair salon, and it was hysterical - the guy was saying how Pluto never should have been named a planet in the first place, and then launched into other accepted theories like "Europe? You're SO not a continent. Just look at a map. And while I'm at it, 'Y'? Don't get enough play as a consonant? Have to take over that coveted sometimes-a-vowel spot, too?" Bah!! Anyway, I couldn't find the article, but I did find an apparently widespread concern over the astrological effects of downgrading Pluto's status as a planet. Apparently Scorpio's sign is closely associated with Pluto, and Scorpios are being warned by some astrologists that they might have a hard time trying to control their plutonion tempers. No, I'm not kidding.

So, I'm not sure if I know any Scorpios, since I have no idea what birthdays that sign covers, but I'll be sure and treat them with a little extra patience for a while. But you know, I'm a Leo, so you pretty much always have to watch out for my temper.

Rawr!

Scorpios are born between October 23 - November 21. or Oct 21 - Nov 20, or Oct 24 - Nov 21....with people being born within those "grey zones" (differing dates) having equal qualities of the two zodiacs from either side. ie, someone born on October 22nd may have just as many Libra qualities as Scorpio qualities.

so...anyway...hey, guess what i was into in high school?! haha!
