As if the planets in the Solar System are not enough for astrologers and astro-fiends to think about – Pluto alone could constitute a lifetime’s study – we also have asteroids in astrology. Are they just a form of space junk that sound cool when you throw them into a chart?

Because it’s funky to say “Well, I have Hatshepsut Rising and asteroid Dallas conjunct my Venus?”  But asteroids have a subtle, surreal influence that can be bizarrely relevant. Browse dozens of posts on asteroids such as Eros, Psyche, Geisha, Circe, Arachne, Pan and many more.

Lilith, Circe, Venus & Mars

How fun! You know the Mars-Venus trine building now and referred to below? Well, I just realised that it is a bit more complicated & enchanted than even that.  I mean, Mars-Venus magic is quite intense as it is. But asteroid Circe is conjunct Venus and so the Enchantress-Witch will be trining Mars too. Womanly wiles, anybody? And Dark Moon Lilith is in Aquarius, moving into an opposition with Mars. …

Weekend Asteroid Mash-Up

Oh well Virgoans are about to go absolutely ape. Not only is Saturn out of their sign so they can go nano-seconds at a time without guilting themselves, they’ve got asteroid Pan (asteroid number 4450) and Dionysus (asteroid number 3671) in their sign with NO Saturn to be a spoilsport banging on about carbs post 6pm, liver function, sane adult relationships and so on. Pan and Dionysus are the good …

Lilith: The Bitch Is Back

Guess what???  Those primal throbbings ain’t just Pluto in slo-mo, stationing Direct. Nor Saturn revving up to oppose Uranus again. Dark Moon Lilith is conjunct the North Node in Capricorn. Let’s just say Lilith is the Bitch Goddess & that she is a Good Thing. Archaic feminine power and all that. And so we have Dark Moon Lilith conjunct (very powerful) the North Node (manifest destiny) and in the mega-pragmatic …

Asteroid Sappho

The other day, I was posting real nice things about Saturn (Saturn Girl) and i only later realised that asteroid Sappho (number 80 if you want to bung her into your chart via Astrodienst) was conjunct Saturn and still is. That so fits!  I still think so many of the asteroids are just named randomly – and there are heaps of them – whereas the naming of the main planets …

Taurus – The Holy Celestial Cow

Every now and then a Taurus e-mails to complain how annoyed they are that their emblem is a Cow but this is SO sacred! Taurus is aligned with the divine Hathor, an ancient forerunner of Isis, Inanna, Aphrodite, Astarte and all.  Pre-patriarchally (yes, it IS that time of the month again) the symbol for Taurus was not the Bull but the Cow. And not just any old cow but the …

Mercurial Magical Weirding Afoot

Messenger-Of-The-Gods Mercury is – yes – heading toward a smack-up conjunction with Saturn & exact next Tuesday…That’s oh, i dunno, kind of factual.  BUT before then Mercury is opposing Eros & Isis as Pandora conjoins Neptune in Aquarius. This is tres foxy astro – cunning, mercurial enchantment.  No matter how hard you are working or how irritating this final crunching of Saturn over the same turf he has been covering …
