Astrologer Shelley Ackerman generously mentions her affiliation with Beliefnet.com in this Wall Street Journal article about how minimizing the planetary stature of Pluto could have complicated astrolgoical effects.
“Whether he’s a planet, an asteroid, or a radioactive matzo ball, Pluto has proven himself worthy of a permanent place in all horoscopes,” says Shelley Ackerman, columnist for the spirituality Web site Beliefnet.com. Ms. Ackerman criticized the IAU for not including astrologers in its decision.
“Others warned that Scorpios–people born between Oct. 23 and Nov. 21–should be especially cautious in the coming days because the sign is closely associated with Pluto.
“Scorpios can be extremely explosive, and very direct, and this could be the trigger that makes them explode,” says Milton Black, an Australian astrologer who claims to have more than 580,000 clients. Laura Bush, Hillary Clinton and Condoleezza Rice, take note. All three are Scorpios.”
