TNO Watch: Rhadhamanthus

Order! Order! Order in the court! If it pleases the court, The Defense would like to call its witness, The TNO Rhadhamanthus. Oh, wait, thats you judge? Well, then I would like to call for a mistrial, as you are our key witness. No chance in hell? Well, then im going to need a minute with my client.

The Science: Rhadhamanthus is a Plutino with an orbital period of 244 years, and 115 days.

The Astro: TNO Rhadhamanthus represents Law and Judgement. Rhadhamanthus was a King in Crete, a son of Zeus. He was said to be very wise, and also just. He was credited with the legal code of Sparta and Crete, and after he died he was rewarded with a posh flat in the Elysian Fields and a job as Judge of the Dead. 

Well thats all well and good, but what exactly does that have to do with interpreting him in the chart? In my experience, This TNO relates to our self-image, how we judge and percieve others, and how we are our own harshest critic. With Rhadhamanthus, we tend to experience an insecurity at the point opposite Rhadhamanthus, and then project that insecurity as judgement and criticism in the house that the TNO is in. For instance, if you have Rhadhamanthus in The Seventh House. That would indicate an insecurity in the way you present yourself and your self-image, and would indicate you tend to play that out in your relationships, which does not end well. 

To view your own placement, head over to, draw up a chart, and pop in 38083 and check out where you have your harshest critic.
