Generations are not individual. Individuals of each generation should not feel flattered or offended for what their generation is or has done. It is the combination of individual contributions of a group of people as seen and felt from far away as a whole that makes up a generation. It makes sense to me that the king of the dwarf planets Pluto, rules over the generations. Yes, all the outer planets influence the generations but if you study people and not books, it is as clear as day and night to see that Pluto rules the generations. People look and sound different right away. They have a unique set of challenges for that generation. And, generations are not set 20 year periods of time like many non-astrology people think. Pluto can stay in a sign as little as 11 years and as long as 36 years. When Pluto stays in the same sign for a long time, things around us stay the same. Parents and children can share a generation. When Pluto rushes through a sign, changes around us are at lightning speed. This is what has been happening with the turn of the century. Technology has made ten years look like 40. Also, extremely short generations, this time Libra and Scorpio so far that I can see, tend to latch onto the each other with sibling bonds, friendship bonds and relationship bonds.
I would like to propose that to attach mainstream names (that the public has aimlessly assigned even though no one can agree on the same dates) onto the Pluto generations can be done but with some tweeking…
To me the following makes more sense and I feel very strongly based on personal observations that these go along with both mainstream ideas, when there, and the sign of Pluto: (Pluto goes back and forth on the cusp)

Hurricane Laura has strengthened into an “extremely dangerous” Category 4 hurricane, according to the National Hurricane Center. It now has maximum sustained winds of up to 140 mph.
“Little time remains to protect life and property,” the center warned in its latest advisory.
A California police officer died of coronavirus complications after doctors twice shot down her requests to be tested for the bug, according to a report.
Santa Rosa police Detective Marylou Armer, 43, was only able to secure a test that confirmed her diagnosis after it was “too late,” her family told the Santa Rosa Press Democrat.
Her older sister, Mari Lau, said Armer had gone twice to Kaiser Permanente’s Vallejo Medical Center with a fever, body aches body and shortness of breath.
But a doctor reportedly told the cop that she was not considered a candidate for a test because of her age and lack of underlying medical conditions.
Ultimately, she wasn’t tested until she went to the emergency room, where she was intubated and placed in a medically induced coma, the outlet reported.
“It was too late already,” Lau said, adding that her sister’s inability to get tested was “very frustrating.”
Armer succumbed to the virus March 31, just days after she received her confirmed diagnosis, according to the report.
Kaiser confirmed in a statement that Armer wasn’t immediately tested, the Press Democrat reported.
Dr. David Witt, Kaiser’s national infectious disease expert, said doctors had adhered to “public health authority testing guidelines, which have been based on a very limited availability of tests.”
“We offer heartfelt sympathies to Detective Armer’s family and loved ones at this profoundly difficult time,” Witt said.
Rapper Chynna Rogers, who passed away earlier this week at 25 years old, died of an accidental drug overdose, Page Six has learned.
A rep for the Philadelphia Department of Public Health confirmed Rogers’ cause of death early Friday.
As Page Six previously reported, the “Selfie” singer was found dead at her Philadelphia home on Wednesday.
“Chynna was deeply loved and will be sorely missed,” her family said in a statement.
Rogers had been open about her struggles with opiate addiction in past interviews and on her 2016 mixtape “Ninety.”
“I felt crazy. I didn’t want to be a statistic. I didn’t want to go out that way and people be like, ‘I told you so,’ or glamorize it [drugs], because I don’t feel like that,” she told Vibe in 2018, years after getting clean. “It was nerve-wracking to be open, but when you see how many more people who are dealing with the same thing, it’s good to have some kind of example of someone you didn’t expect to be going through it.”
A Michigan woman lost her entire family to coronavirus as her husband and her only child died within days of each other, according to a report.
Sandy Brown of Grand Blanc said she’s suffering indescribable grief after losing her husband and son, Freddie Lee Brown Jr. and Freddie Lee Brown III, in a span of three days, the Detroit News reported.
“There’s not even a word created to describe my pain. It’s unimaginable,” she said.
Her 59-year-old husband fell sick in the middle of March, coming down with chills and muscle aches, according to the outlet.
Soon, her husband, who had had a kidney transplant, began having trouble breathing and was admitted to Ascension Genesys Hospital, the outlet reported.
He tested positive for COVID-19 and was placed on a ventilator, which required he be put in a medically induced coma, the report said.
Within days, Sandy received a call that his lung collapsed and to rush to the hospital, where she learned that doctors were unable to save him, according to the report.
Nurses urged her to not go into his hospital room, but she insisted, putting on protective gear to say goodbye to her husband, the newspaper reported.
“I’m going in that room,” she reportedly told them. “I don’t care what I have to do. I’ll sign whatever I need to sign.”
The next day, her 20-year-old son, Freddie III, who had asthma, became sick with a fever and a cough, the outlet reported.
Sandy brought him to the same hospital, where his health briefly improved before he began struggling to breathe, the report said.
It was only three days after her husband’s death when she received the same call from the hospital asking her how quickly she could get there, the outlet reported. She learned that her son had also succumbed to the virus.
“In three days, I lost my husband and son to an ugly plague,” Sandy told the newspaper. “I watched my son go from completely well and whole and happy to being gone in three days.”
CHICAGO – An 18-year-old man is accused of shoving a Marine in front of a CTA train and killing him.
Ryan Munn was arrested on Friday night. Police said he shoved Mamadou Balde, 29, in front of a moving train at the Jackson Red Line stop on Tuesday afternoon.
Balde served in the US Marine Corp. from 2008 to 2015, doing two tours in Afghanistan. He attended Lane Tech High School and as soon as he graduated, his father had him join the Marines.
“He was walking away from these people. He didn’t want any confrontation. They followed him and threw him in front of the coming train,” Balde’s dad said.
The 29-year-old leaves behind his three siblings and his parents.
Iran’s Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif
Iran’s Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif has taken European countries to task for not fulfilling their promises to counteract the impact of US sanctions against Iran following Washington’s withdrawal from Tehran’s nuclear deal with world powers, asking Europeans to at least carry out their ‘minimal human duty’ toward Iranians.
Last year, President Donald Trump unilaterally pulled the US out of the 2015 nuclear deal with Iran, officially named the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), and unleashed the “toughest ever” sanctions against Tehran.
Washington claims the sanctions target the government, but ordinary Iranians are the ones who suffer the most.
In a joint statement on Friday, Belgium, Denmark, Finland, the Netherlands, Norway, and Sweden said they would become new shareholders in a non-dollar trade mechanism with Iran, known as INSTEX.
“In light of the continuous European support for the agreement and the ongoing efforts to implement the economic part of it and to facilitate legitimate trade between Europe and Iran, we are now in the process of becoming shareholders of the Instrument in Support of Trade Exchanges (INSTEX) subject to completion of national procedures,” their statement said.
Britain, France, and Germany (which are known as E3/EU) had announced the establishment of the system in January. The apparatus is meant to circumvent the sanctions that the United States began re-imposing against Iran last year after leaving a nuclear deal with the Islamic Republic and the trio, Russia, and China.
Taking to his official Twitter page on Monday, Zarif wrote, “Instead of arrogant threats or hollow paper promises, E3/EU—and future INSTEX shareholder Sweden—should start with something very simple; a minimal human duty: Ask @molnlyckehc to SELL products enabling Iranian kids with EB to cover their wounds.”
Last November, the Islamic Republic of Iran Medical Council (IRIMC) said illegal economic sanctions have negative impacts on the country’s health sector.
The trade of humanitarian goods, such as food, medicine and medical devices, is on paper allowed by the US, though European companies still refuse to do business with Iran fearing secondary American sanctions.
Since the reimposition of sanctions, Swedish medical products firm Molnlycke Health Care has stopped delivering Mepilex dressings, which are trusted around the world to treat a wide range of chronic and acute wounds, including in EB patients, Iranian media reports say.
In another tweet the same day, Iran’s top diplomat referred to recent remarks by his American counterpart, saying that Mike Pompeo “once again admits that US #EconomicTerrorism on Iran is designed to starve, and in the case of medical supplies, kill our innocent citizens.”
n an interview with BBC Persian on Nov. 7, the US secretary of state said Iranian officials must listen to Washington “if they want their people to eat.”
Pompeo’s remarks prompted Iran’s mission to the United Nations to call on the UN Security Council to condemn Pompeo’s “irresponsible” and “provocative” remarks while Zarif also reacted by stressing that the Islamic Republic will survive and even advance despite Washington’s sanctions.
Iran urges Security Council to condemn Pompeo’s threat to ‘starve’ IraniansIran’s mission to the United Nations has called on the Security Council to condemn the ‘provocative’ remarks by the US secretary of state.
The top American diplomat also made similar threats against Iran quite recently when during a discussion he was asked about the latest US sanctions imposed on the Islamic Republic.
Pompeo said, “…President Trump’s strategic effort certainly includes sanctions as an element of our efforts to make the leadership change their ways. But it is only one component, we think that has been an effective component, we think they are having to make very difficult choices about whether to feed their people, to provide medicine for their people or if they want to underwrite the Palestinian Islamic Jihad in Gaza or Hezbollah in Lebanon.”

Iran’s Navy has announced the mass production of the indigenously-designed and submarine-launched “Jask” cruise missile along with unveiling a handful of other military projects and technological achievements.
Navy chief Rear Admiral Hossein Khanzadi announced the mass production of the Jask missile while visiting a Navy exhibition showcasing a number of the force’s recent achievements on Saturday.
Khanzadi said all of the force’s submarines will be equipped with the weapon and that the missile’s current range will be improved “substantially” in the future.
The commander added that the weapon, developed as part of the “Jask-2 project”, will allow the Navy to hit targets across long ranges.
The missile “will surely be a serious surprise for the enemy,” he said.
Another project dubbed “Jask-3” is also under development, Khanzadi said. The project will allow a wider variety of missile capabilities to be used in submarines, he added.
Also on Saturday, five other military projects and achievements, comprising the sea-launched “Pelikan” drone, the “Sadaf-2” naval mine, the “Soren” positioning system, the “Balaban” guided bomb and the “Loqman” training vessel, were also unveiled.
Among the unveiled projects, the Soren positioning system will allow Iranian submarines to obtain tracking information without using Global Positioning System (GPS) technology, while operating discreetly underwater.
The Pelikan drone also incorporates four vertical-flight motors in order to allow the drone to take off and and vertically on military vessels in order to preform maritime patrol operations from ships.
Joint exercise with China and Russia
Speaking during the event, Khanzadi also said a joint naval exercise between Iran, Russia and China will be held in the Indian Ocean next month.
He added that preparatory planning and agreements had been made in meetings last month between military representatives of the three countries.
“The objective of such an exercise is obtaining collective security and assisting in securing the northern region of the Indian Ocean, which is today witness to certain incidents such as maritime piracy,” he said.
The commander also added that his force faced “no limits” in sailing in international waters across the world, adding that the Iranian Navy was ready to visit “any port” which it is invited to, “be it in the Gulf of Mexico or [Gulf of] Finland” northwest of Russia.
Iran to respond to tanker attacks
Speaking separately on Saturday, Rear Admiral Mahmoud Mousavi, Iranian Army’s deputy commander, said that Iran will respond to elements behind terrorist attacks which have targeted its tankers in the Red Sea in the past months “in an appropriate time and location”.
Mousavi added that Iran has documents indicating which elements have been behind the attacks, adding that Tehran will surely pursue the case through international organizations such as the United Nations and the International Maritime Organization.
The remarks comes as a series of attacks have targeted Iranian tankers in the past months.
Iran’s Happiness-1 faced “engine failure” off Jeddah on April 30 and was later transferred to the Saudi port city for maintenance.
The Saudis initially refused to let the vessel go, demanding some $10 million in maintenance fees before releasing it on July 20.
Iranian officials also said in August that another oil tanker, the Helm, faced a technical failure due to sabotage while passing through the Red Sea.
Iran will not leave ‘banditry’ in intl. waters unanswered: OfficialAn official says Iran will not let attacks on its vessels go unanswered after an Iranian oil tanker is hit by suspicious explosions in the Red Sea.
Last month, Iran’s SABITI tanker was also by two separate explosions near the Saudi port city of Jeddah. The blasts caused an oil spill that was stopped shortly after.
