How to Add New Dwarf Planets into Solar Fire

You know what I really, really hate? When I see there's a big Dwarf Planet candidate that I haven't looked at, and I put it in some charts and damn if it doesn't seem useful and/or provocative. This happened recently when I was looking at the Wikipedia list maintained by Mike Brown, specifically the table Likeliest Dwarf Planets. I had been ignoring 2002 MS4, but for some reason I was shocked to see it is really big, like Orcus-, Sedna-, and Ceres-sized: 960km diameter. The darn thing was the second largest unnamed body in our solar system! I felt I should check it out, which I did via's free chart-making service, but soon I wanted to see it in secondary progression, which meant I needed to get it to show up in Solar Fire on my PC.

So I requested and got the 6,000 year file (3000BC-3000AD) for 2002 MS4 from Astrodienst. That means this file, "s307261.se1" is now available to everyone, here: but maybe you don't know what to do with it, to get it into your Solar Fire program. So I'll tell you.

Once you save "s307261.se1" (click on it when you open the above URL, and it will save to your Downloads folder), you can add it to your Solar Fire (instruction for SF8):

  1. In Windows Explorer (right-click your Start button and choose "Windows Explorer"), go to C:/Program Files (x86)/Common Files/Esoteric Technologies/SwissEph
  2. Create a directory in SwissEph called "ast307" (click "New Folder" in Windows Explorer once clicked into SwissEph, then name it "ast307")
  3. Drag your downloaded file in "ast307" from the Download folder (or copy and paste)
  4. Open Solar Fire and go to Chart Options > User Defined Points
  5. "Edit" the file you are using for User Defined points
  6. Next dialog box, be sure "Asteroid" radio button selected and click "Select File"
  7. Next dialog box, click "Edit" to whatever file you've been using
  8. Next dialog box, make sure radio of "Swiss Ephemeris" is selected and click "Refresh List" button below it
  9. After a moment you should see "2002 MS4" appear on the Available Asteroids list
  10. Click "2002 MS4" to make it move to the left list "Selected Asteroids"
  11. Click Save
  12. Next box, click "Select"
  13. Next box, click "2002 MS4" under Available points on right, then click "Add" button below. Your new Dwarf Planet will appear on the left list, "Selected Points."
  14. Below the Selected Points list, you can edit how MS4 will be shown on screen. You can change its font color, maybe have it just read "MS."
  15. When done editing, click "Save"
  16. Next screen, click "Select"
  17. And (finally) you can open a chart and see your new Dwarf Planet in Solar Fire. You can progress, do anything you'd do with other planets.
Whew, I know, a lot of work! But Dwarf Planets are really worth it. Try some today! At least try to add Makemake and Haumea, if you are new to Dwarf Planets. When I get a really good handle on 2002 MS4, I'll add it to this website's Meet the Dwarfs section with some keywords.

Talk: How Astrology Patterns Appear to be Fractals and Other Discoveries made courtesy of the New (LARGE) Dwarf Planets

I will be speaking at the Friends in Astrology Meetup in a few weeks. Come on out to talk to professional and beginner astrologers during dinner, and then hear the talk about how the Dwarfs have and will do wondrous things!

  • When: April 17, 2019 (dinner 6:30p, talk 7:30p)
  • Where: Denny's restaurant, Sepulveda and Burbank Blvd, Sherman Oaks, CA
  • Talk Description: Introduces the most weighty 21st century trans-Neptunian discoveries, Eris, Makemake, Haumea, and Sedna, and how their use adds "pixels to the picture," giving us a higher resolution view of nativities, events, sec. progression, and transits. In turn, we can see why secondary progression works (it's a "child" pattern of its "parent," the transit pattern, i.e., a fractal), how Astrology's fractal structure is in line with all the fractals found in space (and gives us that long-sought theoretical basis for our profession), how this improves progression so much one can progress/observe/predict milestone and death charts forward AND back, which leads us to see just how well connected everyone on Earth really is.
  • Admission: $5/person. Eating dinner not required.

MORE PLUTOS Given a 5/5-Rated Review by

New, Improved ORCUS glyph released and now available in MORE PLUTOS font

Orcus glyphFor awhile I've not been 100% happy with the Orcus glyph I developed in April 2016, so it was time to try again, and luckily I got some better inspiration this time. Finally the glyph "says" Orcus, both figuratively and literally. "O r c" is obviously a part of the glyph, with the "head" the "O," a protective outstretched arm as the "r," and the "c" as some item or thing being protected or nurtured. The figure formed therefore represents someone concerned or obsessed with an incomplete "o", which could be a physical thing or the desire for order and perfection that Orcus individuals strive for. Whether the figure is waiting for the "c" to grow into a "o," or is aiming to fashion it to that perfect shape, is immaterial. The desire or urge to perfect is what's important. I just had to have Orcus right, for my next book to be complete (yes, my book is a "c" I'm trying to make into an "o"!)

Once again Martina Erskine was kind enough to add this new glyph to the true-type font I've offered here to download, that can be installed on PCs (Windows) and the icons selected to display as User-Defined points in Solar Fire. If you would like to use this font, shift-click this link to download the file: Asteroid MorePlutos.ttf. Once on your Desktop or Download folder, double-click to install. The link to this font in the April 2016 news item (below) is the same file and so also updated. And again, A big Thank You to Martina!

To configure Dwarf Planets in Solar Fire (version 8) to display in More Plutos glyphs:

  1. Open the Solar Fire program and click Chart Options > Displayed User Defined Points
  2. Click Edit button at right
  3. I'm assuming you might need to put some or all of the Dwarf Planets into your program. If you've already got them in there, skip to step 4.
    1. Click on the radio button by Extra Point "Asteroid"
    2. Click "Select File > Transnep.ast > Edit > find your Dwarf Planet selection in "Available Asteroids"
    3. Click the desired Dwarf Planet names to move them to "Selected Asteroids"
    4. Click "Save" and then on the next screen, "Select," to return to "User-Defined Point Selection" dialog box
    5. Find the Dwarf Planets you've just mined from the Transnep.ast file, in the right column. Click the ones you want so they jump over to the left column of "Selected Points."
  4. Now, in "Selected Points" column at left, click the Dwarf Planet you want to have a More Pluto-type icon
  5. At bottom, click "Font" and find and select the font "Asteroid SUE"
  6. Choose your color/size/etc.
  7. Click the arrow ">" next to the Color button. That will open the font selection
  8. Click the glyph to associate with your Dwarf Planet (see the key I have on this natal chart of Donald Trump, who is a whopper of a Sun-Orcus authoritarian) and click "Select" button.
  9. When all Dwarf Planets have the glyphs you want, click "Save," and at the next screen, "Select."
You should be good to go!

More Plutos website moved to Amazon Web Services

In December 2016, my friend Steve Levin, who has given me web hosting for free since the mid-1990s, told me and others on his server that he would be shutting it down at last. While I duly backed up my files and started hunting for a new home for my beloved Dwarfs and their book, Steve's server remained up month after month, and I was lulled into complacency... until this website "disappeared" around April 3 of this year.

But we're back, via Amazon AWS. The only trouble is, I've lost all the news items I posted since mid-2016. So here are some highlights of "the lost months":

  • Working on Book Two for Non-Astrologers - Since 2016 and throughout 2017, have been assembling a general-audience book on the Dwarfs that explains how their discovery is a breakthrough moment for Astrology. So many endeavors of humankind began as misunderstood and disrespected, because so often, some portion of their operation was unknown: astronomy, medicine, continental drift, and quantum mechanics are all good examples of now respected professions that desperately needed some key information to begin working reliably or have its operation understandable. Astrology is no different. And just like DNA developed to a state where it was essential in identifying criminals, Astrology that includes Dwarf Planets will prove highly useful in identifying, for example, when certain terrorists on a watch list are most liable to act.
  • More Plutos on Facebook - As mentioned in the Plog, I have been posting brief analyses on current events and people in the news, on my More Plutos Facebook page, as well as on other Astrology Facebook sites. I also serve as an admin of the "secret" (as in hidden) Steve Tuffill's Astro Discussion Group, founded by my dear friend, the late astrologer Steve Tuffill. There I post usually the same short articles found on More Plutos Facebook. If you are on Facebook and you'd like to join this Astro discussion group, send me a request.
  • May-July 2017 - Massive undertaking having our home's floors replaced, from rugs to vinyl tile! (Why massive? We have thousands and thousands of books, for starters.)
  • July-Nov. 2017 - Recovering from having the rug literally pulled out from under us. Returned to working on my second book, slowly but surely, but slowly.
  • Nov. 2017-April 2018 - Fell ill from a simple course of antibiotics in early November, which led to relapse after relapse through the holidays and into the new year. No work on the book; could barely deal with everyday tasks. On March 30, was given a "bacterial tranplant" that seems to have stopped this awful cycle of reoccurence. Exactly a week ago, as Saturn stationed (opposite my n. Sun at 10Can22), I finally felt that maybe I was really getting better.
  • April 27 and Beyond? - Hopefully I will be finishing the book in the coming months. Did I mention how great my floors look?

2007 OR10 has a moon!

What is it with 2016?! First Makemake picks up a moon in April, and now The One Who Is Not Named, half a year later, coughs up a moon. Are they having a contest?! Tit for tat? Here's the announcement: Big Kuiper Object 2007 OR10 Has a Moon.

UPDATE, 27 Dec 2018: *STILL* *NO* *NAME*, for either OR10 or its Moon. SIGH.

Dell Horoscopes Praises More Plutos

I've only just received a copy of this review, which appeared in Dell Horoscopes, July 2016 edition, so granted this isn't a very timely new item. I was asked by Dell Horoscopes for a review copy of my book in early January, which I was happy to send. Then in April I asked the person who had contacted me if they knew in what issue the review might appear. I didn't hear back, so I actually thought maybe my book didn't fit in with their readership, which I expected was more sun-sign oriented.

But a few days ago, someone posted a question to my More Plutos Facebook page and happened to mention he'd bought my book after reading a review of it in Dell Horoscopes. Imagine my surprise! Even better, the review was super complimentary from first to last! Thanks, Dell Horoscopes!!

Here's the review (PDF; 658K).

MORE PLUTOS Wins an eLit Award!

More Plutos is now an AWARD-WINNING BOOK, since the 2016 eLit Awards were announced in late April (scroll to "New Age/Mind-Body-Spirit category). As you can see at right, More Plutos picked up the Silver medal for all eBooks submitted for consideration.

This has inspired me to submit More Plutos for other eBook and print awards, both for self-published and traditionally published books. I had no idea there were so many contests out there! We shall see how it goes.

To celebrate, I'm signing personalized copies of More Plutos bought through this website. I'll even throw in a print-out of your natal chart with Dwarfs included; more info on the home page.

2007 OR10 Larger than Previously Thought

The Kepler Spacecraft has discovered that 2007 OR10 is the third-largest Dwarf Planet, edging out Makemake and Haumea. Previously it was believed to be the fifth largest.

2007 OR10 has always been the largest unnamed body in our solar system. Co-discoverer Mike Brown of Caltech promised to name it in 2011, but still hasn't come up with a moniker he likes. Dr. Brown has pointed out that in 2017, anyone will be able to propose a name, as it will be 10 years since its discovery; after such a period, it's no longer just the purvue of the discovery team to submit a name to the Internation Astronomical Union's Minor Planet Center.

The website referenced above shows 2007 OR10 as no. 3, followed by Haumea and Makemake. Usually Makemake is considered larger than Haumea, because of Haumea's football shape. Don't be surprised if the size estimates for these distant worlds change again and again. Except for Pluto, which was measured very accurately during the New Horizon's flyby in July 2015, different space telescopes produce slightly varying size measurements. That's why Eris was considered larger than Pluto for a time. Until robotic spacecraft visit 2007 OR10 and/or Makemake, we might consider them sharing the no. 3 position for now...

Makemake has a moon!

See the details at Hubble Discovers Moon Orbiting the Dwarf Planet Makemake. How thrilling! This means we will know more certainly, the size of this significant Dwarf. See the image (click for larger version) from Wikipedia; little MK2 is the bright dot just at the top, like its the angel on top of the Makemakean Christmas tree.

No name yet, but until it's chosen, what about Moonymoony?

UPDATE, 27 Dec 2018: Apparently the early estimate of 1500km is standing firm, as Makemake's size has not been updated in Wikipedia. And Mike Brown does update his Dwarfs' pages. Telling!

April 20, 2016

New Icon for Orcus (superceded by new icon, debuted Aug. 15, 2018; see above)

Orcus glyphIf only Dwarf Planet Hunter and Caltech professor Mike Brown would name his discovery "Snowwhite," formally known as 2007 OR10. Then one might simply use OR to designate Orcus in charts, without the possibility that some might mistake it for OR10. But no, "Snowwhite" (and I) are still awaiting that permanent name. Meanwhile, based on its apparent operation in charts, I developed a glyph for 2007 OR10, the "weeping heart" → OR10.

On the positive side, that frustration caused me to design my own Orcus glyph, one that represents this hefty 917-km world in a particularly Orcus-like way. To me, Orcus is Order, as well as a desire (or obsession) with Perfection. So I aimed for not just a very balanced icon, but one that meaningfully reflects the order I have found inherent in Astrology:

The three main sounds of O, C, and S are represented in the icon, in the order they are pronounced. Now flip that icon upside-down . . . The same three sounds in the same order are still presented. The icon is in effect a pallindrome, the same forwards or backwards.

Since I have found that birth charts, event charts, and basically any milestone chart for a person, can be progressed forward to see future events, and "regressed" (or progressed in reverse) to events in the past, this says to me that the Order of Time is invariant, i.e., the same backwards or forwards. This is why I designed the Orcus icon to represent the sound of the planet's name, both forward and backward.

For some more detail on Orcus, read my Spotlight on Bernie Sanders, whose birthchart shows Sun square Orcus.

Lastly, fellow astrologer Martina Erkskine was kind enough to convert my Orcus glyph, OR10 "weeping heart" icon, and others I developed, into a true-type font that can be installed on PCs (Windows) and the icons selected to display as User-Defined points in Solar Fire. If you would like to use this font, shift-click this link to download the file Asteroid MorePlutos.ttf (UPDATE Aug 15, 2018: I've changed the Orcus glyph to one I like much better, and that newer glyph is in the font file.) Once on your Desktop or Download folder, double-click to install. When choosing that font in the pick list, look for "Asteroid Sue." In Solar Fire (8), from the UI, click Chart Options > Displayed User Defined Points Select the Dwarf Planet you want to add (usually Edit button> at right, click on Extra Point "Asteroid" > click "Select File > Transnep.ast > Edit > find your Dwarf Planet selection in "Available Asteroids" > click to move to "Selected Asteroids" > click Save Click "Select" to save your choices Now, in "Selected Points," click the Dwarf Planet you want to have an icon At bottom, make "Font" to be "Asteroid SUE" Choose your color/size/etc. Click the arrow ">" next to the Color button. That will open the font selection Click the glyph to associate with your Dwarf Planet (see the key I have at this chart) and click "Select" button. When all Dwarf Planets have the glyphs you want, click "Save" and at the next screen, "Select." You should be good to go.

Thanks, Martina!!

Plog Series: There are More Presidential Candidates

Primary time is upon us; do you know the real story about each 2016 presidential candidate? Not only do you need to check out their birth charts, my Astrologer friend, you need Dwarf Planets to get to the real nitty gritty! So far I've analyzed Mario Rubio and Ted Cruz, but there's more to come....

30-Year Anniversary of Challenger Disaster

Today I posted a short piece on the Challenger Disaster's chart on the More Plutos Facebook page. You don't have to be a Facebook member to read the post and view the charts, as the site is Public.

If you are an astrologer, you should consider checking out the many Facebook pages that discuss astrology. I've been spending more time myself posting and answering questions on these interesting group pages. These are either groups that want to talk about a specific aspect of astrology (like a particular planet, or asteroids only, or any Dwarf Planet), or they are general astrology discussion groups. Below is a list of a few of these communities.

Public Facebook Discussion Groups
With public Facebook groups, they are free to read but you have to join to post. Two good ones are

"Members only" or "Closed" groups
To read or post, you must first have a Facebook account. Once you do, type the group's name in the Facebook search box to locate one and then click the "Join" button.

  • General Astrology Discussion
    • Steve Tuffill's Astro Discussion Group
  • Specific Topic Discussions of Astrology
    • Eris: Eris Says "Come Join My Party"
    • Eris: Eris Followers
    • Dwarf Planets: Evolutionary Intensified People

On Eris, Antidote to Pluto

I've just posted a full-length article on three of the main interpretations of Dwarf Planet Eris, called " Eris, Antidote to Pluto." (UPDATE: With the passing of Steve Tuffill, owner of "" which unfortuately no longer exists, it was necessary to move this article here to the More Plutos website.)

In the article, I review Henry Seltzer's book The Tenth Planet: Revelations From the Astrological Eris and Laura Walker's online book-length treatment, Eris: Archetype of Shadows, discussing their Eris interpretations and how they supported their assertions. I then argue that Marina Macario in her 2010 article on Julian Assange and my own book More Plutos have Eris right, as The Other, a symbol of alientation and connectedness with Others. Why believe me? Because I also offer a few ways we might validate Eris's true meaning, once and for all.

Debut of the Planetary Blog = PLOG!

The new Plog has manifested itself, and it looks like a TARDIS! That's right, the first post is about the venerated British TV series Doctor Who, and called Doctor Who Turns 52. Enjoy!

Recent Appearances (Slides and Audio available) and Future Plans

This past week was very busy and productive, and challenging as I just returned from a trip back east on Monday. But somehow everything happened as planned:

  • The NCGR-LA Meetup on Thursday, Oct. 15, had a packed house of 35 people at Dupar's Restaurant in Encino, wondering what a "Makemake" was, as I snuck the Exciting Dwarf into the talk on Eris and Haumea. Fellow astrologer and friend Steve Tuffill of Steve Tuffill's Astro Discussion group and many other useful astrology groups on Facebook, captured the audio of the presentation and linked it in his very much appreciated article about the Eris-Haumea talk. You can also view the Eris-Haumea talk slides here (PDF; 20MB).
  • At the Dharma Center Bookstore in Whittier, I again gave impromptu readings this past Saturday and was available to sign my book. This has become a regular and well-attended event, so expect to see a November date listed on the More Plutos home page, soon. In the 30-minute session ($30), you can get a targeted birth-chart analysis, a pressing question answered, or if you're an astrological professional, we can talk about the Dwarf Planets and why you need to use these big boys.
  • Photos from the Vroman's Bookstore event in August are STILL coming. Honestly, I have been waiting for Ron to put his More Plutos shirt back on, because I want that photo in the collection. Also I have been crazy busy, but I have not forgotten.

Other than the monthly Saturday appearance at Dharma, there are no more scheduled events coming up, but two articles are coming in the Astrological Journal, and I have submitted a third article to The Mountain Astrologer, which I hope will be accepted soon.

Coming soon to this website: a weekly or bi-weekly blog on various current events or other astrological notes of interest, which I hope to debut in November. Stay tuned!

Sept. 9, 2015

Signings, Readings, and Slide Show Coming, Oh My!

Coming up, I'm returning to the Dharma Center Bookstore in Whittier, where I presented a talk on the latest Pluto images in July, as well a review on several of the mosst important Dwarf Planets farther out from Pluto. This time I will be doing impromptu readings. You can ask a particular question (without mentioning your birth date), or you can get a short birth chart reading. Either way, you get 30 minutes of analysis/discussion for $30. That's this Saturday, Sept. 12, 1-4 p.m., at 7007 Greenleaf Ave., Suite 210 (upstairs), Whittier, CA.

Next month, I will be presenting a Slide Show on Eris and Haumea at the NCGRLA Meetup at Du-Par's Restaurant, 16120 Ventura Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 91436.

The Vromans' Signing on Aug. 30 went extremely well, and photos from the event will be up soon, both here and on the More Plutos Facebook page. Another signing is in the works for sometime in November-December. Stay tuned.

For the latest events, always check the More Plutos home page.

More Plutos Gets Enthusiastic Review from Astrology News Service

It was quite a thrill to learn that the Astrology News Service website posted an extremely positive review of More Plutos. Reviewer Armand Diaz e-mailed me to let me know it was up, and that he enjoyed my book. A day does not get any better than that!

More Plutos Print Replica for Kindle, iPad

I know Kindle fans love their Kindle features, but sometimes the conversion to create that presentation really screws up the careful formatting of a book like More Plutos. So in addition to the usual Kindle and Nook e-books, I've made available a More Plutos (Print Replica) that can be nicely viewed on large tablets like the Kindle FireHD or iPad.

In the print replica, you can see compared chart diagrams side by side, whereas this nice feature is stripped from the other e-book versions. Images are clearly with the text they illustrate, and tables are larger and easier to read.

Just be sure you see "Print Replica" next to the title when ordering. And don't forget to leave an Amazon review -- I want to hear from you!

June 4, 2015

Today was a busy and gratifying day:

  • More Plutos is now available at Vromans Bookstore's website. Later this summer, I will actually have a book signing there, with some cool giveaways, so stay tuned!
  • I stopped by the Thunderbolt Spiritual Bookstore and handed out my nifty new More Plutos Bookstore Flyer giving them the low-down on the book and ordering information. Here's hoping they order a few copies! One down, hundreds more to go (most bookstores will get the flyer in the mail, of course).
  • Have finished making a number of contacts/submissions to various astrology organization's email lists and meetups, to build awareness of More Plutos.
  • The paperback version's back cover will soon have some abbreviated quotes from The Mountain Astrologer review that appeared last week. That means that the copies already sold (including 20 copies I still have) will be collector's items. Hey I can dream, can't I?
  • And I updated the website! As you can see...

May 18, 2015

When I sent in my book to be reviewed by The Mountain Astrologer just hours after the first books arrived, I expected that in a few months, I'd see the review in their gorgeous, glossy magazine. The LAST thing I expected is getting an email less than a week later, saying the review was ONLINE, in TMA's Blog! Read the wonderful review by Mary Plumb that absolutely blissed me out!

May 13, 2015

The books have arrived! Both Amazon and Barnes & Noble lists More Plutos for sale. My free paperback copies from Dog Ear Publishing arrived this afternoon. The e-book is in production. I put together a fan page on Facebook, that's now ready for promoting. Time to celebrate!!

May 1, 2015

The print preparation for More Plutos is now complete, taking a bit longer than at first estimated. Now the book is expected to appear on Amazon, Barnes and Noble, and other online booksellers (in both color paperback and e-book format) by mid-May. Can't wait!

March 30, 2015

More Plutos is finally at the printer, and its expected online and print release is looking like late April, perhaps as soon as three weeks away. I'm still getting used to having my life back.

By the way, a miracle happened in that Kindle now accepts PDFs instead of insisting on Word docs. This means you're no longer forced to have special fonts (like every single zodiac sign I needed to use) wiped out by the Kindlefying process. Who knew God would answer that prayer.

Nov. 30, 2014

More Plutos can now be found in the online National Council for Geocosmic Research Holiday Memberletter on page 12. Meanwhile, the third-last chapter of MORE PLUTOS is winding up today. Book release might slip into January 2015 since I may need to reformat some parts for the Kindle-type version. Apparently all the nifty zodiac symbols and such can't be included in Kindle since they convert any special fonts to their own very standard font. Ayiii!!

Makemake Article Published in Astrological Journal Cover of Nov./Dec. 2014 issue of Astrological Journal

On Hallowe'en I got the best treat of my life when the mailman brought me copies of the latest Astrological Journal (Nov./Dec. 2014 issue), inside of which was lurking my Makemake article. Especially pleasing was the enlarged title image of Salvador Dali, which seems to leap out at you when you turn to my piece. How apt as Makemake is a startling, electric-shock kind of object, as the many examples in my article hopefully demonstrate.

Even more interesting and exciting personalities and events will dive bomb readers in the Makemake chapter of MORE PLUTOS, which is nearing completion.

Oct. 21, 2014

Sedna Article Accepted by The Mountain Astrologer!

My excerpted Sedna article has been accepted by The Mountain Astrologer and will appear in the next issue, Feb./March 2015, arriving at newsstands in early January. I'd throw a party but the rest of the book is calling my name, pleading to be finished!

Oct. 12, 2014

Sedna Article Resubmitted to The Mountain Astrologer

My excerpted Sedna article for Mountain Astrologer was just resubmitted to the editors at 1:05 p.m. with the revisions they requested. OK I admit it, I was angling for Moon sext. Jupiter, trine Venus, all applying, but I really was ready to submit. Really.

Eris Article Now Online

My article Eris: The Discomforting Other is now available online (PDF; 8.5MB). The version printed in Astrological Journal had a typeface problem that was not discovered until the issues were mailed. I'm grateful to editor Carole Taylor for fixing these errors and allowing a PDF to be posted for readers to enjoy the piece as I intended.

AA Journal thumbnail, Sept./Oct. issue

Eris Article Appears in Astrological Journal

Last Tuesday the Sept./Oct. issue of the Astrological Journal came in the mail. I was excited to see it, as it contained an excerpt of the Eris chapter from my forthcoming book MORE PLUTOS. Unfortunately, as I looked closer I found that just about every zodiac glyph printed in the text was wrong. I was sick, wondering what happened. I e-mailed journal editor Carole Taylor and learned that unbeknownst to Carole, the desktop publishing program she used had corrupted the font. Carole was more than apologetic about the situation and is preparing a corrected PDF for me to post, which she will also link to the AA Journal website.

Once this electronic version of "Eris, the Discomforting Other" arrives, I will tweet out the link and post it here and on the home page of MORE PLUTOS. While it was terribly disappointing to have such problems with the printed copy, I look forward to sharing the Eris article with everyone who cares to read it. The AA Journal isn't available online, so this snafu could potentially give my Eris research a wider audience than I thought possible! Stay tuned.
