Astronomy: Mars between a Rock and Jupiter

Sabian Earth

From Science News, April 17, 2017, an article speculates that Mars is smaller than it should be because Jupiter’s gravity meddled with the rock formation of Mars and pulled it away creating it’s 67 moons. The largest of Jupiter’s moon are Europa, Ganymede, Io and Calisto and are called satellites because they were discovered by the great astrophysicist, Galileo Galilei in 1621. Saturn btw, has only 62 moons. The Red Planet has two, Phobos, from which the words phobia and fear derive from, and Deimos, from which demon does.

Like so many people, I am a paradox. I am a politically conservative vegetarian. I am from a Christian background, and still tend to like those values, but am a metaphysical astrologer trained in science who has an interest in the magic of ancient Egypt and a weird belief that some piece of our essence can live on a server. I live in Texas, but like chatting with my international Wordpress pals the best. I learn by teaching. Technically, I am a "Leo," but I am very, very Aquarian with a dose of Scorpio. I bitterly complain about Algol (and Algol personaliites), yet it is the one star that defines me most (other than Regulus). (Which, oddly, makes me an Algol personality.) I am a reclusive lover of peace and quiet who has the Ascendant in the Via Combusta (the most conflict ridden part of the zodiac). I am an incredibly private person with a blog with over 800 followers and 50 to 150 regular daily visitors. I could go on, but I think you get the picture.
