it doesn't. astrology is crap. it's based off of 5000 year old records from china and egypt, then intermixed with greek and roman mythologies.
also, with progression of the earth's poles the dates are all off... i'm a virgo by astrology, when really i was born during leo. oh, and why don't you ask about how in the modern zodiac there are 13 constellations?

maybe we have another ice age coming, it's said theres usually a mini-ice age before a planet heats up and with global warming (which i think is a natural cycle anyhow) heating up the planet this might be the case

cmdrkeenkid. are you serious? do you not believe that astrology holds any validity?

I think there will be new factors that the astrological community as a whole should sit down and discuss. A new sign of the zodiac should be created. How about The Phoenix? Since it's returning from a long "sleep".

From what direction/constellation system is Sedna coming from? I don't know if this is a relavent question or not, astronomy isn't my strong point.
With the discussion of planet/non-planet... I'd be hard pressed for an answer. Being spherical certianly helps... having a moon is a plus, too... although Mercury and Venus don't have one. Having an orbital shape which matches other planets is a big bonus. But who knows... time will tell.

don't think it makes any difference to the zodiac..plus the zodiac is about constellations not planets. yes i know planets locations in the constellations mean stuff but it's still really all about constellations..and this sedna may not even be a planet.

We do count things like the Moon's nodes. A very few use some of the larger asteroids, but to be honest, that option doesn't seem to add much.

The Kings used to have Astrologers around to help predict things like floods and droughts, and the crop cycles, but you know what? They stopped using the psuedo-science, and you know why? That's right, because they were always wrong. It just didn't work. And as soon as the Kings bounced the actual historical facts against the astrologers predictions, and found that they were loopy, they ended up on their ears...
Add much? Add much what? Is there a substance or a hidden force that has an effect on our lives that is changed by the position of the heavenly bodies?
