“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. I was looking up some fancy asteroid and instead of Ganymede or Ganesha or whatever it was, i happened upon asteroid Gary.
There are times when asteroids seem irrelevant but on other occasions, they 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.
What is the delineation of asteroid Gary? Well, we’re kind of on our own with this. Nobody but us is using asteroid Gary. There are no existing delineations for Gary in astrology.
So Gary was discovered and named on January 9, 1983. Unlike 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. Gary is where you’re basic. You like going to the mall with your jeans fitting right and good hair. You prefer globally branded food and beverage products. You like sunny weather, your velour couch, a good laugh, and sexual release.
The actor Channing Tatum has asteroid Gary Rising in Scorpio. Kim Kardashian has Gary conjunct her Mars in Sagittarius.
