Asteroid Prometheus

Filed in Asteroids

Genius, Hero & Trickster who stole Fire from the Gods for humanity – what’s not to like about Prometheus?  He’s like a sort of a cross between Chiron & Uranus or something. He’s also an asteroid – Number 1809 – currently conjunct VENUS (hmmm) and you can throw him into your chart via the Extended Chart Options over on Astrodienst.

Let’s share our findings re this. Presumably Prometheus in your chart would show where you demonstrate an awesome insane dimension of guts & genius, you’re high on audacity and you could go too far. Would not necessarily do well in a team environment lol. I’d love to meet or hear of someone with Mars-Prometheus. Mine is in early Pisces trine the Midheaven – need to think that through.

Thoughts?

This one was funny. Mines in the 9th house sagittarius, yes I have extreme ideas. Even better, and more hilarious, its conjunct to my partners chaos.

Prometheus cnj Mars here! In Gemini with just 26 minutes of arc separating them!

Oh hell yes, verbal audacity is my forte! They’re both on Aldebaran – the Bulls’ Eye star – though, so that certainly doesn’t help!

I have prometheus in my first house, 24 Virgo (rounding up). My first house also has mars in it (11 Virgo). I played competitive soccer all my life, getting full tuition college scholarship for soccer. Presently, I get up a 3:30 am to fit in my daily 2.5 – 3 hour workout routine (kundalini yoga, body shaping). Would do even more if had more time (adding dance). Working out has always been the easiest thing for me to be disciplined it. I’m an introvert so don’t really display brazen mars in the first house energy, but did have an intense… Read more »

Due to a recent shroom *revelation* where i kept repeating in my head i am prometheus i am prometheus (lololol) i looked this up like a month ago and found it at 27 degrees Virgo in the 10th house and trine my sun… But to be honest tho I can’t fathom what it all comes out to.

Ha, Prom in Sag (10th house, widely conj Lilith/Ceres conj in Sag/10th) in exact trine to my 6th house Leo Sun. Makes complete sense to me without going into a 90% deets explanation. Love how it lends me more fire in my chart 🙂

29%42’27” LIBRA !!! I mean just when you thought it was safe ‘cos Saturn had gone, I find I’m still in transit! lol. Not sure what it all means really, ‘cos the more I look into my chart recently, with mars, pallas aspects etc. the more I’m finding an emphasis on the more independent warrior type that I am. I mean I always felt it, just couldn’t express it so well. This is close enough to my sun to be considered conjunct, along with mercury on the other side. Despite the strong virgo, I’ve felt I’m a little bit Gemini… Read more »

Oh dear. 1 degree Aries square Venus, trine Chiron? I have Aries Midheaven too. What does this mean other than that my genius is a hothead rearing to get me into trouble re: love and career? 😛

It’s just stuff being retrieved from what already was. The Divine Coup so to speak…The Native Americans call it “counting coup”…when you steal something from someone while they are unawares (eh Pegs? Lynn V. Andrews in Medicine Women was counted coup on but she turned the tables later on..Go girl…)

14 degrees Virgo in second house trine sun in 9th, so about to have venus-prom transit. Something to do with possessions and income and perhaps with the trine to 9th house philosophy and values, emotions towards work, travel etc. If where you have prometheus can be guts and genius maybe working on self (in 2nd house) will enable the 9th house stuff to work better??

My natal Prometheus conjuncts my Venus in Libra, 5th house… Libra has a wide conjunction with Uranus (7 degrees). WTH??? Maybe I really do need to tap into my 5th house stellium one of these years and see where it takes me!!!

As if that’s not enough? Lilith squares my Moon/Pluto conjunction in 5th House Libra. What am I waiting for???

Natal Prometheus is conjunct my Mercury in Libra and is approaching my natal sun right now 🙂
I can say I am very diplomatic by nature and have the ability to get my point across without offending anyone (no matter how difficult to do) but if someone crosses a line I can easily get very intense and make people feel terrible. Having Mars in Aries helps with fuelling this, I guess 😀

Well I shall have to ponder it overall but 4 degrees in 11th and it’s just Prometheus and Aries hanging out. Trine sun and linked to moon and ascendant. Quintile to moon and venus and semisquare to asc. But then I have the wonderful if indeed hard to get your tongue around… sesquiquadrate to Neptune in early 7th which Scorp but 7ths is also sun. So, this lil baby.. the super square indicates irresolvable stuff that one learns to live wiith and since it’s across the 11th and the 7th its all about relationships and hopes/wishes associated.

I decided to get on a plane and flee, even though Saturn has been sitting atop my natal Jupiter in the 9th for…what…ever? It feels like forever. So I rented an apartment in Paris for a month, and i’ve been in bed sick for three days straight. Just me, and my box of tissues, watching YouTube vids about A1 and A2 milk. Thank you Saturn! I am actually doing my Saturn and Pluto: I dragged all my computer gear with me to work, and I’ve been processing past emo/mental stuff 24/7. I just want to satisfy my ninth house Jupiter… Read more »

Prometheus conjunct mars fifth house sagg – have just started a degree in fine art – it’s definitely where my spark is but have to watch my tendency to burn out!

Just found that I have Prometheus in the 6th in opposition to Mars and square to MC, making a t-square. Work, wellbeing and career are constant issues. Boredom, freedom, self-control, inertia / abandon, all battle it out in the astrological theatre of my chart.

Prometheus … 0.09 away from my Jupiter (which is conj. Chiron). That means my guts are bigger or the bird is bigger? Or am I a philosophical Firestarter? It is in the 11th House.

Prometheus is early Libra Asc 1st
Conjunct Mars-Venus-Asc, square MC-Fortune Kataka, inconjunct Chiron Toro.

Am I the only one who vibed negatively with this tale? Strangely enough, as a child Prometheus marked the end of a golden age in my imagination as opposed to the end of tyranny – and I’m a U.S. and French revolution fanatic, though these movements weren’t entirely anti-aristo motivated to be honest….

Gutsy, audacious geniusness – awesome!

Conjunct Mercury in Cappy 8th. I just threw out all my work appraisals from my stint at corporate slavery – every fuqing 6 months comments like: “not a team player”, “needs to be more accepting of team”,bla, fuqing blah. Upper management hated & feared me because I couldn’t kiss arse, or be a ‘yes’ woman; customers and staff loved me though…

Mines in my overloaded 8th house, at 25 Leo, on the Venus/Jupiter, square Mars, semisquare 6th house moon (exact) and sesquiquadrate Saturn (which is in Aries, exactly square my Cancer Moon). God do I identify with being chained to a rock for eternity, though it is in the service of something and some people I cherish. Whinge, moan: it does get very frustrating at times though, and lonely, and frightening because all of those decisions have to be made alone. Possibly that is all down to that powerful Saturn Square 6th house moon though, Prometheus is just the icing on… Read more »

Promethus 8th house in Libra conjunct Sun, Mercury and Pluto. Maybe, even though I consider it a drawback , my intenseness is winning.

in late cancer on 3rd house cusp aspecting absolutely nothing. no guts or genius- phooey. since mine was so disappointing i looked at friends and family- parents both have directly conjunct saturn (leo and libra). sacrificing for children/legacy maybe? sacrifice unappreciated? ha. genius piscean brother has directly conjunct uranus in sag 9th square his 12th sun/moon and opposite vesta. audacious to the extreme and does not give a flying fuq, ever. and of course scorp-libra self-made ceo bro has it at 0 aries in the 6th, opposite 1 libra jupiter. how could it be otherwise?

Sorry that should be Mars conjunct Prometheus. My Mars opposes my Sun/Merc and trines my Midheaven and Chiron too. Prometheus lays off my Sun/Merc conjunction (thank goodness what with Mars being there and all) but trines the other two. Is this good, bad, or should I be indifferent? I am curious, as I am currently being battered about by Chiron squaring off my Sun/Merc. Maybe I need to get my Percy Bythe Shelley on and write some tome about epic mythological experience with a solid iambic pentameter. Feeling very much the wounded poet of late to say the least.

It would be nice to date a Prometheus. AFTER he’s become a little more sensitive with age. After he’s had his heart broken by a woman he thought was the one but turned out not to be after all BUT it changed him. BUT not RIGHT after. Not the rebound chick, the other one, AFTER that chick. OR. Maybe I can just BE a Prometheus chick myself, yah. I’d like to steal fire from the gods or borrow it with their permission. Not feeling like a team player at all. I’ve been such a good team player for years and… Read more »

Prometheus was punished for stealing fire by having his liver ripped out by an eagle every day, only to have it regrow. Are you sure you’d want to date that? Who would take on the role of the eagle?

Lucy

As long as his liver doesn’t get ripped out by alcohol or drugs and I’m definitely not the eagle.

I like MM’s description. Just a bold dude cuz he has to be to get him through this shift. Guess he needed that fire for some-thing. (Can’t remember my ninth grade mythology.)

Prometheus conjunct Pluto in Fifth House trine Mars in Eighth House. Wouldn’t really describe myself as audacious. I do turn insanely competitive when playing board games or charades with friends and family. And I have a wonderful, unconventional, red-haired child in my life–my hilarious nephew, who’s like a son to me. He does have a Promethean vibe.

Cool, love these asteroid posts. Prometheus is conj my Venus, Ceres and Pallas in Aqua, which puts him opp my Leo ascendant. Fire v fire. Funny because I’ve spent the last 48 hours indulging in one of those self-pitying fantasies about actually burning my house down… chucking some stuff in my car, leaving a candle burning and never looking back. At the mo it feels like the easiest option. Look for me on the news 🙂 Any vulture should think twice about having a crack at my liver, because it probably has a Hazchem sticker on it. I don’t know… Read more »

Thanks C – got a laugh out of the Hazchem sticker quip! Please do not burn down your house, but it would make a great opening or closing movie scene – or maybe both opening AND closing? Apparently its good to have a concentrated chart, most of the amazing peeps about whom MM blogs seem to – but everyone’s varies so much I doubt its really significant. I am defo procrastinating though I did return 2 library books today – wow 🙂

Just ran the numbers and mine is at the top if my chart in Saggo – not brilliantly aspected (square sun and merc, and trine Neptune) – I could be more gutsy and audacious re career but my sun/merc conjunction in virgo blocks that a bit – and I could achieve the glory by being haute neptune…quite true, actually!

Transiting Prom & Venus are passing over my natal Moon-Pluto conjunct at 6d & 8d Libra, respectively.

Natal Prom at 4d Capricorn/10th house; the only entity in my 10th. As a matter of fact, it’s the only entity I have in any of my natal earth signs. Prom is square Pluto, and it has some sort of aspect to my Sun-Venus conjunct in Scorp/8th house, but have no idea what those little symbols mean.
