Last night, in a discussion of Pluto’s demotion to dwarf planet, I brought up the fact that many astrologers have decided to disregard science’s classification and go on treating Pluto as a regular planet(1). And then I said it would be interesting if some pioneering astrologer retooled the system to account for all of the dwarf planets in a new and interesting way, and as a result astrology suddenly started being so laboratory-accurate that even the most defiant of skeptics had to admit that it only didn’t work before because the math wasn’t quite right yet.
IANAAstrologer, and I don’t feel like putting in the research necessary to write the story. But the idea amuses me.
(1) I am told the State of New Mexico has done the same, owing to how the guy who discovered Pluto was New Mexican — though he was in Arizona at the time of the discovery.
