Should there be two more Major Arcana cards to represent modern astrological planets?

In ancient astrology, some planets rule two signs: Some examples include Saturn rules both Capricorn and Aquarius, or Jupiter does Sagittarius and Pisces.

Modern astrology assigns new ruling planets for some of these signs, save for two pairs: Mercury rules Gemini and Virgo, and Venus rules Taurus and Libra. Some of the modern ruling planets were reflected in the Raider Waite's astrological interpretation. Uranus, Neptune and Pluto are represented by The Fool, The Hanged Man and The World, respectively.

Recently, I came across an interesting article that assign Chiron as the ruler of Virgo and the 8th House. And Ceres as Taurus' and the 2nd House (although I don't quite see the connection here.)

What do you think about this? Should there be two more Major Arcana to represent these modern rulers? And out of the asteroids and dwarf planets, do you think there's a better ruler for Taurus than Ceres?

P.s: This is just a hypothesis, so keep an open-minded. Tarots are never restrictive for me, so all opinions are highly valued.

P.s #2: Adding 2 Major Aracnas will be difficult, but not impossible. If some modern decks can have more than 78 cards then there is no reason why we cannot change the tradition a bit. This is a hypothesis, have fun!
