How did the decision of pluto not being a planet any more affect astrology?

What do they call Pluto now?

An asteroid or sumptin?

    John, they call it a big rock that's way far away.

    But seriously, they should use the same criteria as they do for other planets in other solar systems...the symbiotic gravitational relationship between star and planet.  Right now, Neptune would be the "end zone" using that criteria.

      That's an excellent question (your first one especially).  I wonder the same thing.  Is there anyone with the lowdown on this?

      By the way, it's a mystery why they called Pluto a planet in the first place.  Based on its skewed and very elliptical orbit it was clear that Pluto was not formed by the same matter and forces that created our solar system.  The theory is that it was like a giant asteroid that was captured by our sun's gravitational field sometime after the creation of the solar system.

      Pluto's orbit is so strange that there are times when it's the farthest planet from the sun, and other times when Neptune is the farthest planet from the sun.

        You were close. It's been downgraded to a planetoid. I'm not big into astronomy, but this was the first I ever heard of a planetoid.Coffee

          Pluto would be clasified as a dwarf planet like large asteriods (Ceres) or other large Kuiper belt objects past Neptune. No word yet if it gets switched to "little person" planet later. Considering Pluto is smaller than our moon and most of the moons of Saturn it's not surprising that it got bumped. When it was discovered it was though to be a single object which would have kept Pluto a planet but since it was discovered to be a binary planet it's actual size is much smaller than initial estimates.
