Recently, Pluto made the headlines when we were told he was no longer a planet. What did this mean from an astrologer’s point of view — and therefore for all of us? What really happened is that Pluto was found to have a whole family of newly discovered dwarf planets around him, and he was re-categorised to join this group. The astronomers named them Ceres, Charon, Makemake, Haumea, Eris and Sedna after deities from littleknown indigenous cultures. Alison Chester-Lambert has studied these choices and their influences on the human race in the 21st century. She draws meaning from their ancient myths and the events surrounding their discovery with no complicated astrological jargon. Climate change, biodiversity, food shortages, clean energy, financial crisis… Can astrology help us understand these challenges? Wild claims and poor astrology have fuelled a doomsday sensation regarding 2012. Alison Chester-Lambert’s in-depth analysis of the dwarf planets’ influence allows her to set the record straight and to show us how to work with the big changes and opportunities ahead.
