The Hypothetical Trans-Neptunian Planets

The Hypothetical Trans-Neptunian Planets

Beautiful, Hypothetical

[New to Asteroids & Minor Planets? Start Here]

When I first read about the hypothetical trans-neptunian planets, my first thought was ”You’ve got to be kidding me.” 

The hypothetical planets are just that – hypothetical. Between 1927 and 1934 two German astrologers theorized that there would be 8 planets found beyond Pluto. Since I’m already so passionate about the asteroids (of which there are 19,000+), I didn’t see any reason we would need to track hypothetical, potentially non-existent points since astrologers’ charts are already teeming under the weight of ‘additional objects’.

I took my time with the hypotheticals, and since then have come to realise just how potent they can be within a chart. In general, I work with them as I do the asteroids – very tight orbs (ruthless, even) and major aspects only.

Here’s an example to get your started: the hypothetical Kronos is in Hillary Clinton’s 7th House of marriage and partners, conjunct to her North Node. At prima faccie, this talks about her marriage to Bill Clinton, and potentially, her own Presidency.


The Hypothetical Planets

ADMETOS

Blockages, delays, frustrations, patience, hindrances, standstill. Depth, profundity, ‘that which is fundamental’, endurance, focus, specialization. The beginning and the end (the wheel of life), real estate, the few, death.

According to Margaret Lang-Wescott, Admetos-Mercury connections (as example) could indicate either limited thinking, or deep thinking.

APOLLON

Multiplicity, expansiveness, ‘many irons in the fire’ (sometimes too many), science, peace, great success, commerce, distant career opportunities and contacts with foreigners. The ‘big picture’, instead of details.

CUPIDO

Small groups, marriage, families. Home, property, art/artists, society, cliques/clans, beauty, crafts people.

HADES

Poverty, ugliness, suffering, garbage/filth, dirt, sickness, shame, bacteria, secrets, decomposition/deterioriation, antiquity, loneliness, debasement, vulgarity, and crime. ‘Past lives’, the ancient past, secrets; sometimes related to the teachings of ancient wisdom or older sciences. A few positive meanings for this planet include healing of disease and is frequently found in the charts of health professionals. Service, in the highest or lowest sense.

I’ve most recently seen a very strong Hades placement in the transiting birth chart of Venezuela, where by transit it was strongly placed in aspect at the time of the food crisis.

KRONOS

Mountains, airships, leaders, executives, the government and government officials, nobility, mastery, fathers, independence. An authority or expert, and also the questioning of authorities or expertise. Anything superior or above average. VIP’s.

The hypothetical Kronos is in Hillary Clinton’s 7th House of marriage and partners, conjunct to her North Node. At prima faccie, this talks about her marriage to Bill Clinton, and potentially, her own Presidency.

POSEIDON

The mind, spirit, ideas, enlightenment, inspiration, spirituality and “vision.” The life force.

According to Martha Lang-Westcott, Mercury-Poseidon connections may indicate spiritual perception; Venus-Poseidon connections may indicate pure love or religious faith.

VULCANUS

Great strength, power, mighty forces, fate, destiny, control issues. ‘Explosive’ circumstances, energy or force; urges one cannot control; coercion by charisma. Can also indicate one’s reservoir of energy and the depletion of that energy.

Marilyn Monroe has her Sun conjunct Vulcanus – a rather explosive force, no?

ZEUS

Strong forces and power: weapons, anger, will power, machines, fuel, fire, targets, the military, conception, creativity, drive, obsessions, purposeful actions. Zeus represents control and restraint, but when badly afflicted can also indicate loss of control. Excitement, incitement.
