And here the 3 “modern” planets:



Uranus is the erratic planet, in the sense that it deals with good fortune positively, as well as misfortune adversely. It is the modern ruler of the zodiac sign Aquarius, and is strong in Libra & Scorpio too. Adversely weak in fire signs, like Aries or Leo. It deals with ingenuity, science, and also psychic matters to a certain point. Sudden flashes of inspiration and related are good signs. On a bad note, sudden negative changes and so on. Its number is 1 and has similar attributes for the rest as its predecessor, Saturn.


Neptune is the planet of clairvoyance; its zodiac sign is Pisces and it is strong in Sagittarius and the remaining water signs. Does not do well in Earth signs in general. It deals with all matters that are occult intangible- intuition, insight, spiritual enlightenment to name a few. Negatively, self-delusion, neurosis, mental illness and so on. Its number is 2 and related attributes are like its parent, Jupiter.


Pluto is Mars’ brother, and has therefore a lot in common with it. It deals with willpower, making or instigating changes that affect multiple people. The capacity for leadership and courage, drive, and ambition are good marks. Bad ones are tyrannical behavior, a weak will, and destructive or violent tendencies. Its zodiac sign is Scorpio & its strong in Aquarius, Capricorn & Libra. Adversely weak in Taurus, Leo, Cancer & Aries.  No known number and related correspondences at this time, aside from its main counterpart.
