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.

Asteroid Thais

Thais was a courtesan of Ancient Athens and constant companion of Alexander the Great, traveling the world with him. She was said to be extremely loud, learned and eloquent.
