This post is –
(a) An erudite look at asteroid 203 – Pompeja a.k.a. Pompeii and its possible esoteric significance in your chart?
(b) Gratuitous – an excuse to post a picture of Kit Harrington* shirtless?
(c) Both the above?
(c) is clearly the correct answer here. There is a Pompeii movie out in Feb 2014 and Harrington plays a gladiator-slave trying to save the woman he loves. Pompeii still hurts, every time we see those poor sad figures but it clearly has all the makings of an epic disaster movie a la Titanic. I don’t think i could bear it. Even if kit does get his kit off, lol.
F.Y.I. Harrington has Venus, Moon, Pluto in Scorp, Mars in Pisces and the Sun on Neptune in Capricorn. People, he has the soul of a poet.
Astrologically, asteroid 203 Pompeja/Pompeii is currently at 23 Libra. You find where it is in YOUR chart – if you want to send yourself whacko hunting down obscure asteroids – via the Extended Chart Selection on Astrodienst – you just enter in 203 to the box at the bottom and voila, it shows up in your chart.
What does it mean? NO IDEA. But it would be very interesting to see if anyone as this asteroid near their South Node (a.k.a. point of past lives) and feels a connection with the place. Have any of you been there and if so was it haunting?
The Mars of Pompeii.
