ASTEROIDS IN ASTROLOGY

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.

More Bulls

Queen of the Night – at the British Museum – most likely Ishtar. Ishtar’s Bull – from the Babylon Gate.   Asteroid Ishtar – currently 23 Sagittarius conjunct Pallas-Athene, the City Goddess. Referencing this.

The Spider Goddess Asteroid Arachne

Asteroid Arachne is in Taurus until April 29 – currently at three degrees. She is the Spider Goddess and astrologically, is said to signify a grand talent and enviable powers of perception. That these could also arouse envy seems to come from the mythological Arachne, turned into a spider by an apparently jealous Athene.

Full Moon Communications Alert

This is a MutableRead More…

Asteroid Amphitrite – The Original Ocean Goddess

Between Eclipses

I got a “w.t.f. is going on?”text from a Muggle this morning. It was a bit irking as (a) this person would not stoop to read my Horoscopes, that sort of thing being “medieval” for the Muggle’s advanced intellect and (b) i am mopping up floodwaters after the most epic storm, up all night, wailing winds, trees falling, the whole deal.
