Where does astronomy start and astrology finish?

Philosophy, astronomy, astrology, mathematics, numerology and magic were once part of the same all-encompassing knowledge system. Today they are separate streams. The ancient mystery schools of Pythagoras, Plato and Ptolemy understood that they were inter-related and relevant parts of the same wisdom source. Archetypes were allocated to what was visible in the sky and based on practical experience of what their presence in the sky brought about. More recently, Jung taught that we all carry the same myths and archetypes in our collective unconscious.

Modern technology has enabled us to identify and learn about thousands of additional planetary bodies and hypothetical points. Does size or other astronomical characteristics stop Pluto from being an incredibly powerful influence in the charts of our clients?  Why shouldn’t asteroids, centaurs or plutoids have just as important a part to play in astrology as the bodies we have been familiar with for centuries?
