Styx is a small natural satellite of Pluto whose discovery was announced on 11 July 2012. It is the fifth confirmed satellite of Pluto and was found approximately one year after Kerberos, Pluto’s fourth confirmed satellite.
Styx was discovered by a team led by astronomer Mark R. Showalter, using fourteen sets of images taken between 26 June and 9 July 2012 by the Wide Field Camera 3 fitted to the Hubble Space Telescope.
Styx is about half as bright as the dimmest previously known object in the system, Kerberos, and about one hundred thousandth as bright as Pluto. It was designated S/2012 (134340) 1, and informally referred to as P5. Continue reading
Scorpio, 8th House and Pluto –Black Magic, Family Curses and Bad-Luck
From The Astrology Place
A little bit of black magic is mixed in with the astrological meanings behind Scorpio, the 8th house and Pluto. Themes involved usually entail something of a walk through the fires of hell, and some kind of opportunity for a magical transformation and possibility of being reborn again in the metaphorical sense. Pluto people are like black magicians and very hypnotic. Hefty descriptions, metaphors and symbols allocated to Plutonian astrology patterns in the natal chart give these people the most powerful potentials available to them. Many Pluto people need some kind of creative activity to express and give form to their DARKEST, deepest thoughts and feelings. Continue reading
Planets in Scorpio Part 2: Mars, Venus, and Moon
By Deecoleworld, 2014
In Planets in Scorpio Part 1, Ascendant and Mercury, I talked about Ascendant/Rising and Mercury in the sign of Scorpio. In this hub, Planets in Scorpio Part 2: Mars, Venus and Moon, I will be talking about mars, Venus, and moon in Scorpio. Again this does not specifically refer to the sun sign in Scorpio (some similarities may apply however).
Mars in Scorpio
Your Mars is in Scorpio, in the planet of action, sexuality/sexual expression, and energy. Mars in Scorpio is a fairly decent position for Mars to be in. Remember that Mars rules the sign of Aries, and was (or is, depending on who you ask) the Continue reading
Planets in Scorpio Part 1: Ascendant, and Mercury
When you first meet someone what planet do you see? Do you see the sun sign, moon sign, ascendant sign, etc? It is tricky to say what personal planet someone first sees in a person. Even so, it’s fun to try and take a go at it.
As I repeated many many times in previous hubs, my theory pretty much goes like this:
When someone first meet you (and vice versa) they meet your ascendant sign. After a while once they get to talking with you they meet your Mercury and Venus signs concurrently. It is on this occasion you laugh, joke, and get to know each other more. After you both depart, deciding that you Continue reading
Pluto in the Houses
Pluto IN 1st HOUSE – Pluto in your 1st house, indicates that you have a powerful need to in some way re-mould your character at certain points in your life. Pluto represents the force of change and transformation, with this planet in the house of the personal self you will periodically need to clear your life of certain structures that you feel are limiting your growth, such as a bad relationship or job. If you do not recognise or express the energy of Pluto within yourself, you may unconsciously act in ways that provoke someone else into doing the job for you, so the other person breaks up the relationship, or your boss gives you the sack. In these cases you will see this as a crisis, until you are able to admit that this was what you needed, and secretly desired. Continue reading
