Facts about the planet pluto

  1. 1. Astrology in Action – Pluto People who are fascinated with Astrology often read newspapers and checkout their horoscopes to see what their luck would be. Astrology can work if youbelieve in it. Money, love, pleasure, happiness and satisfaction are the things wewant in life, so how does Astrology work for you in these aspects? It may seemcomplicated, but once you learn the basics, it will take care of itself. For example,a person’s sun sign indicates the constellation where the sun was when he/she was born. The moon sign is also important because it is the sign of the zodiac that the moon occupied when, and where a person was born. These are the basics, so it is important to know that the Sun offers hope and gives out energy, while the Moon changes a person’s mood in any day. The planets are associated with our lives and influence us in varying degrees. For now, let us focus with Pluto. It symbolizes deep transformation in a person’s life. As the ruler of intenseenergy, Pluto is about how a person exercises control his own life. It also is thegod of wealth, hidden treasures and “power” over people. In the big picture, Pluto will make a person look back at his life and see it asa major transformation. Nothing is permanent, but change and Pluto can alter aperson’s life this way. One must not expect changes right away because it wouldbe slow and gradual. He must learn to relax and deal with things in a calm manner.Pluto can shape a person’s identity and give him a purpose in life. When it comes to love, Pluto will help a person change his/her perspectivewhen it comes to emotions and values. A man or woman can look good when theywear new clothes and the right temperament when it comes to love. It wouldimprove their self-esteem, so lovers should feel excited when they reach a highlevel of maturity. Pluto can make a tantalizing transformation in anyone’s life foras long as that person knows how to channel his emotions and turn it to positiveenergy. People should take note because love matters very much. Mystery and spiritual experiences can excite a person’s senses and Pluto willmake sure that his/her insights would be sound. Living in the present is a positive
  2. 2. way for a person to live. Looking at the future can bring negative thoughts,especially if things are not going as planned. Pluto will teach discipline and how aperson should deal with negative or positive circumstances. Humility should bepracticed at all times, so no one can be accused of being arrogant or egotistical. For all the energy a person can exert, Pluto will teach him, or she to relax, sosleep – of all things is tantamount. A person may be drained by traumatic events orbecome frustrated at times, so sleep will rest his mind and he would be energized when he wakes up. One must not go into vices because these will warp the mind. Pluto will teach you how to channel positive emotions and your dreams may come true. This is Astrology in action and Pluto symbolizes change, regeneration and transformation. A person should let the planets influence his/her life, so there would be good results. Pluto - Cast Off and Treated Like a Bum Being cast off is a very painful thing. Perhaps a person would feel verylonely because he is treated as a pariah in his own backyard and sent off to exile.In Roman mythology, Pluto is the god of the Underworld. Unlike his morepowerful siblings, he lives alone in his lonely and desolate kingdom. Just recently,the planet Pluto was unceremoniously downgraded from a planet to a “dwarfplanet.” For being a tiny planet with bigger and more massive neighbors like Erisand Charon, it was stripped off and nudged out of our solar system by a group ofastronomers, who thought it was the right thing to do scientifically. Pluto maybe a cold and unfeeling planet, but many people were hurt by thefindings. Even if it is a distant planet, Pluto was already in the mindset of mostpeople who loves Astronomy. Imagine their consternation when they received thenews that Pluto was discarded and sentenced to be with other celestial beings in aplace called the Kuiber belt. They felt outraged because Pluto was condemned toeternally wander in that place and worse, be eventually forgotten as just another
  3. 3. icy planet. For many other astronomers, the decision was really a crime to thepoint that they are going to appeal the controversial decision. Astronomers have long been fascinated with the cosmos, studied planets andexplored the Universe, but casting off Pluto was deemed as an insult to thesensibilities of the average person on Earth. For all of its perceived“shortcomings” as a planet, Pluto was a planet that people grew up with. It is adistant, but beautiful celestial body in the cosmos and can only be viewed by themost advanced telescopes. Pluto being downgraded was humiliating, but for it to be brushed aside as another insignificant ball of ice and rock, was like adding salt to the wounds. Moreover, it would take years or even decade for the ordinary earthling to accept that it is no longer part of the solar system. What galls people though is the apparent indifference ofmany astronomers to Pluto’s plight. Like typical elitists, they shrugged off thenotion that this tiny planet is significant in people’s lives and they could notcomprehend what the fuss is all about. However, the controversy would not goaway easily. The number of astronomers who voted to downgrade Pluto pale to thegrowing number of people and scientists worldwide, who want to put this poorplanet to its rightful place in the solar system. For now, the status quo remains andPluto wanders around its lonely axis, far distant from its neighbors and it only getsclose to Neptune of all planets. For now, scientists will study about the mighty Sun and how many billions ofyears it will last until it ages. It will eventually become a giant star that willhappen beyond our lifetime and become a dwarf star when it burns out. Poor Plutowill have to wait for more dynamic discoveries and the growing dissentingopinions of other astronomers for it to be welcomed back into the fold. Hope is notlost though. Nothing in this world is permanent, but change. People thought thatthe Earth was flat centuries ago. The astronomers who casted off Pluto might beproven wrong in the long run, eventually.
  4. 4. Pluto and Its Largest Moon Pluto is officially no longer a planet. The International Astronomical Uniondowngraded it as a “dwarf planet.” It was not massive enough to fit into theUnion’s standards on how it should clear its orbital neighborhood of similar-sizedobjects. In fact, Pluto is even smaller than the satellites of other planets in the solarsystem. Moreover, it is even smaller than another Edgeworth-Kuiper object calledEris, which is only slightly larger than Pluto. Unlike the other planets in the solar system, Pluto’s satellite moon Charon, named after the boatman in Greek mythology, who brought the dead across the River Styx to Pluto’s (God of the Underworld) realm is much larger and is called a double planet. It is possible that Charon was formed after it collided with another celestial body. Pluto rotates the sun in 6.4 days, which is similar as Charon. They rotate synchronously with each other’s orbit, which is not the case with theother planets and their moon satellites. The tidal effects of Pluto and Charon havelocked both into a mutual orbit resonance, which makes them for a dumbbellspinning in space. Thus, both are facing one another while rotating. Moreover,they are very close to one another, like Earth and its moon. Pluto was discovered way back in 1930, while Charon was only discoveredin 1978 by Jim Christy. The reason is that the two celestial bodies were blurred,while being view by ground-based telescopes. Technological advancements likethe Hubble SpaceTelescope made it possible to view Pluto and Charon, whichunfortunately was one of the bases of Pluto being downgraded as a “dwarf planet.”Charon is the largest moon in the solar system and also with respect to its primaryplanet, Pluto. It does not have a significant atmosphere though based on studies. Both, Charon and Pluto are located in the Kuiber Belt, a place that is verydark and isolated, so it is likened to the underworld. These two can be hardly seen
  5. 5. by most telescopes, except for the Hubble Telescope. They are different thoughwhen it comes to atmospheric color. Charon’s atmosphere is colored neutral grayand bluer than Pluto’s. The moon’s surface seems to be abundant with water ice, incontrast with Pluto’s which is nitrogen ice. Since both are very distant, theatmosphere temperatures of both are extremely cold. Very little is known though about Pluto and Charon when it comes to the appearance of their surfaces. These celestial bodies are very tiny, fuzzy objects that even the Hubble Space Telescope has trouble in describing their surface features. Certain studies though suggest that the two worlds have contrasting surfaces. Pluto’s surface is composed of ice and rock,which is made up of carbon monoxide and methane. Charon on the other hand isnot, but is made up of several ices. Moreover, it has a history of active geology,even with its frigid surface. Astronomers to this day have more questions than answers regarding Charonand Pluto. A future space probe may hopefully prove fruitful in the future andpossibly show us unprecedented details about these two dark and unusual worlds.Until then, astronomers can only rely on the Hubble Space Telescope fortelescopic data. Be as it may, Both Pluto and Charon remind us how beautiful andmysterious our Universe is.
