A girl in my office made that very same point.

I doubt that it would be highly relevent, it orbits the sun every ten thousand years? Not likely to swinging things drastically one way or another on a day to day basis.

i have never even heard of Sedna

Aren't Horoscopes still based on the belief that the earth is at the center of the universe?

I bet it does something.
18 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Thursday 3/18/04 - 9:32:37 PM EST (GMT-5)
hmmmmm I doubt it could dent such an accurate proven science.
18 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Thursday 3/18/04 - 9:36:12 PM EST (GMT-5)
He he. Astrology follows a blind empiricism.

Well since i have never had a actual correct horriblescope, why not trash the whole system and start over; using planet x , sedna, hale bop, and uranus?

I haven't heard about this? When did this happen, anyone have a link?
18 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Friday 3/19/04 - 1:31:00 AM EST (GMT-5)
Ha ha, I shoulda used google first. That's quite interesting.
18 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Friday 3/19/04 - 3:23:57 AM EST (GMT-5)
It doesn't change the fact that it's a pile of bollocks.

Too bad it appears to be a comet in orbit, and not a planet at all. Does every asteroid in the galaxy effect astrology? I think not, it orbits the sun, but look at how many sattelites orbit earth. No one ever takes those into account. :P

"Writen" or "written"?
18 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Friday 3/19/04 - 8:25:36 AM EST (GMT-5)
No. Astrology will still be all bunk. But, for the sake of argument, I'm not certain Sedna counts as a planet - its just the largest thing discovered orbiting the sun since pluto. And, last I heard they were even thinking taking away pluto's status as a planet.

i still won't read 'em
18 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Sunday 3/21/04 - 5:16:21 AM EST (GMT-5)
They didn't notice the fact the constellations have all moved on two places since astrology was developed, so why should this stop them?

Tossers.

I don't think astrology is bulls**t

but 9/10 of astrology you read whether internet or newspaper or magazine is almost certainly bullocks.

I know of astrologers like Tony Hyland who is very very very accurate and doesn't resort to generalisations.

Sedna would do bullocks because its so small and far away! hell at its closest Sedna is 3x the distance pluto is, at its furthest its ten!

18 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Sunday 3/21/04 - 6:24:49 AM EST (GMT-5)
and of course Sedna is not a planet its a planetoid.

I don't see how astrology is *not* bullsh*t. Is it supposed to work by some sort of physical influence from the heavenly bodies? Apparently. And how is this supposed to work? If they're so far away, their influence should be so infinitesimally small as to never be capable of having an effect, especially as the presence of the earth, moon and sun would smother this influence. If you accept that their influence is not affected by distance, then there'd be a maximal effect at all points in space, in which case their positions should never be relevant. This is all not to mention that if they had such an effect, it should be measurable.

A skilful astrologer would be able to make it seem like they are not resorting to ruses, but they are. It's no different from mental illusion or sleight of hand.

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAHAHAAHa

I like this. It is a brilliant observation, and would explain why there are several inaccuracies in the whole astrology thing.

Who knows, maybe the whole theory is correct but they failed to take into acount the whole sedna variable...

no. it's too far away, and it's only a planetoid.
18 yrs ago, 2 mos ago - Thursday 5/27/04 - 5:41:26 PM EST (GMT-5)
Who names these things anyway. Sedna! It sounds like a sedative.

Reminds me of Edna.

Horoscopes are full of crap.
