Alfred Witte was a renowned German astrologer and a member of the Kepler Circle. Now the Kepler Circle was a group of avante guarde astrologic minds whose main purpose was to clean up and evolve astrology base on the groundwork layed by Johan Kepler. Now up until that time the methods for charting the sky had been fairly crude, going from the advent of the telescope to the pendulum clock, we were still in the early 20th century dealing with a two-dimensional system trying to understand a three dimensional picture.
So Witte and his colleague Friedrich Seigrunn were trying to use the traditional system to calculate and predict Russian artillery barrages during World War I based on precise astrological records that they kept, but they couldn't do it. So Witte creates this whole new system that is geometrically based as well as based on symmetry between planets. So gone is the two dimensional static chart which most astrologers still use today, and in was the moveable dial, and with the moveable dial he can now reference any plane or point he would like and then when he references a point or plane he can see symmetrical arrangements, that is, things that are equidistant to that point that gives us even more information about the point in question. So all these tools and techniques were really a major breakthrough for the time.
Lets go back to the battle front. So with the dial Witte and Seigrunn were now beginning to accurately time the bombardments with amazing precision, but perhaps the equally important discovery Witte had made was that he started to notice unoccupied points on the dial that were repeatedly being activated when things would happen in the environment. And so after years of proofing he aptly named these spots Hades and Cupido. These points are referred to a Transneptunian planets in the Uranian system.
unoccupied points being repeatedly activated when things would happen in the environment. these points eventually became know as the first two transneptunian planets discovered, cupido and hades.
The Transneptunian planets are actually hypotheticals. The physical bodies have never been discovered but they are "points of energy" that have been proofed over years. There are eight Transneptunian planets in all, the first two (Cupido and Hades) being discoved by Alfred Witte and the remaining six (Zeus, Kronos, Apollon, Admetos, Vulcanus and Poseidon), discovered by his students as they carried on Witte's work with the dial. The Transneptunian planets add a tremendous amount of clarity and depth to a chart. I often see it as "putting a magnifying glass to the astrological chart," illuminating already present patterns even more.
