Everyone knows the story of beautiful Pandora. Unable to contain her curiosity and despite explicit instructions to the contrary, she opened the box that contained all the world’s evils and out they flew…Right at the end the little spirit of hope flitted out. There is more, of course, but that’s the concise version.
Mythologically she slots straight into the pantheon of other trouble-making females blamed for basically everything bad; Lilith, Eve etc etc.
Astrologically, she is asteroid number 55 and as with the other asteroids (see the category Asteroids for more) you can put the number into the Astroidenst expanded chart options to see where your Pandora is.
At the moment, she is at 18 Gemini so in a few days, I am about to have my Pandora Return, as my natal Pandora is 22 Gemini. Square Venus. Do i know what this means? Not really. Pandora is one of many asteroids i go on and off studying.
Some say she operates like a female Saturn-Pluto energy, being about the opening of the box you don’t wanna open.
Others that she is more a rebellious influence, where you will never do what you’re told.
The few times i’ve checked out Pandora in synastry (between charts comparison) Pandora seems to be a component that really gets under the skin of other peeps. If a significant point in your chart (eg; Ascendant, Moon, Sun, Venus, Mars) aspects your lover’s Pandora, they’re totally buzzed out and infatuated-yet-irritated by you.
Maybe Pandora is just sexy but bats? Operating like a mental Moon?
Thoughts please guys.
