Asteroids in Astrology are like homeopathy. They fluctuate in and out of fashion. When applied to a natal chart they can seem whimsical or downright irrational. Compared to the heft of a Jupiter Opposition or Lunar Eclipse, an asteroid is as diluted as a homeopathic remedy.
The worst they can do is not work. But when they do resonate, it’s with uncanny magic. Logically, they shouldn’t mean anything but the fact they do always makes me think that the galaxies are far more complex and enriched than we realize.
For an example of ‘weird but it works’ see Demi Moore’s Asteroid Galactica report here. Yes, she’s super-8th House and Plutonic, as if a secret lab got instructed to create an ultra-Scorpionic person. Her Mercury conjunct Neptune alignment is particularly on show in Inside Out. The Tabloid Geishas are focussing on her Aquarius Ex a lot. But she’s co-written this with Ariel ‘The Rules Do Not Apply‘ Levy and zoomed straight into the legacy of her childhood trauma and how ‘sexy’ can so often be a protective mechanism.
But her asteroid story makes sense. For example, she has Mars conjunct Karma, Pan, and Magdalena in Leo! All the turbulent, roiling heavy waters of her 8th house channeled into performance, big-ego charismatic men and iconic moments which, in their era, were genuinely ground-breaking.
The asteroids in her astrology add extra surreal snazzy sparkle to an already compelling natal energy.
