“What the hell is asteroid Gary?” has become a F.A.Q. in the last few weeks and so here is the answer.
Asteroid Gary is an actual asteroid – number 4735 – that began as a kind of a joke on here. I was looking up some fancy asteroid in the Astrodienst A to Z list (and some of you will know there are thousands on there) and instead of Ganymede or Ganesha or whatever it was, i happened upon asteroid Gary.
So asteroids in astrology are kind of controversial and i personally wax and wane on them. There are times when they seem absolutely indulgent and irrelevant but on other occasions, their pop-ups in a chart add a wow factor of strange synchronicity that cannot be ignored.
So asteroid Gary FYI was conjunct the New Moon on the weekend and is currently at 25 Scorpio. I have Gary conjunct my Moon in Libra, which really is something i need to parse at some point.
What is the delineation of asteroid Gary? Well we’re kind of on our own with this. There are none of the old astrological sages with big-time Gary interpretations. Or any.
So Gary was discovered and named on January 9 1983. Unlike the the classic planets, which have had certain significances for millennia and across multiple cultures, asteroids are a lot more random.
But my delineation of asteroid Gary is that he lends a certain stone-washed masculine braggadocio to any persona or circumstance. Asteroid Gary is simplicity itself and suggests where you are more than satisfied with simple pleasures; the hair or clothes sitting right, the flirtatious smile across the mall, globally branded food and beverage products, the sun out, physical release.
As noted before, the actor Channing Tatum has asteroid Gary Rising in Scorpio. Kim Kardashian has Gary conjunct her Mars in Sagittarius.
