Finding Asteroids in the Natal Chart


Guest author Alison Schelin

Asteroids are pieces of rock, possibly remnants of former planets, orbiting the Sun, found largely between Mars and Jupiter. There are upwards of 8,000 named asteroids, many of which can be examined within the natal chart, but for our purposes we will explore the most prominent five. These consist of Chiron - the most famous centaur, the “Wounded Healer”, and the only male in the lot; Juno, wife of Jupiter; Vesta, daughter of Saturn; Pallas Athene, daughter of Jupiter; and Ceres, Jupiter’s sister, now promoted to dwarf planet status alongside her son-in-law, Pluto. Asteroid Lilith, not to be confused with the black moon/apogee Lilith, is certainly also worth delving into, but deserves her own treatment along with the other theoretical Liliths. Consider too, Eris, Artemis, Chaos, Hekate, Fortuna - any asteroids and dwarf planets that speak to you.

Consider that the only female planetary bodies otherwise are Venus and the Moon, and it becomes apparent that a little feminine balance is in order.
Why do we encourage delving into the asteroids, given their latecomer status in the field of astrology? First and foremost, including the asteroids imparts a yin energy to the natal chart. Consider that the only female planetary bodies otherwise are Venus and the Moon, and it becomes apparent that a little feminine balance is in order. In a male’s chart, it can be especially helpful to explore even more female asteroids than those covered here in order to reveal his feminine side. Note that although Ceres is now considered a dwarf planet, the classification is less important than the potency of the archetype, just as with Pluto’s “demotion”.

Like Pluto, Chiron has an unusual orbit. Chiron in the chart refers to health, disease, and how each might contribute to the spiritual path. Despite his ability to heal others, he was never able to heal himself, symbolizing strength through suffering. In healing others, we gain insight and salvation. Chiron well-placed endows us with wisdom, and patience, and makes gifts of our wounds by building character and perseverance.

Ceres, the Goddess of the harvest, fertility and renewal, the quintessential “Earth Mother”, reveals how you feel most nurtured and how you provide love and nourishment. As mother of Proserpina, abducted and wed by Pluto, she reveals our relationship with loss, adjustment and compromise, and influences our need to share power and control. Negatively aspected, Ceres can indicate problems with nurturing such as food complexes or rejection by a parent, or perhaps difficulties in compromising. Strongly placed, it suggests strong parenting abilities, or perhaps an intimate relationship with the Earth, as in passion for gardening or farming. Well-aspected Ceres indicates an ability to go with the flow, as when the Goddess was compelled to adjust to her daughter’s arrangement with Pluto - half the year she resided with him in Hades, half the year she was reunited with her mother.

Juno’s sphere of influence is commitment and conjoining, soulmates and intimate relationship. As the wife of Jupiter, her role in love and romance differs from Venus and the Moon in that it covers boundaries, jealousy and resentment, how much a partner shares or holds back in a relationship, and intimacy needs in general. When prominent in the chart, expect all of these to be important to the individual.

Vesta, sister of Jupiter and Juno, is keeper of the hearth and home, represented by the sacred flame. She affects our capacity for integration and wholeness. Well-placed she imparts compassion - many therapists and counselors have strong Vesta energy in their charts. Negatively aspected she can indicate insecurity or even fear of sex and intimacy. The individual may be single and abstinent, or have multiple partners without commitment.

Pallas Athene rules the intellect and represents the wisdom of female Spirit. She finds patterns and connects ideas, and excels in strategic command, able to view conflict from both sides.  She is discerning, and influences our ability to analyze and interpret information and situations. So too does she shine in the spheres of creative and artistic endeavor. Sprung from the head of Zeus rather than by her mother, she is relevant to the relationship between father and daughter, and also how a woman treats males in general. Pallas Athene rules the immune system, and can indicate being well-versed in natural remedies. Favorable position of Pallas Athene endows cool mental judgment and a creative intellect, courage, and sometimes an affinity for the arts and crafts.  

To find the asteroids covered here in your natal chart, visit http://www.astro.com/ and select “Free Horoscopes” from the menu. Under “Drawings and Calculations”, select “Extended Chart Selection.” If you’ve already created a profile, your birth chart information will be stored, and you will be prompted to log in. Otherwise, enter your birth data as a guest or create a profile and proceed from there. Once you are directed to the page entitled “Extended Chart Selection”, scroll all the way down to the last blank field and enter 1,2,3,4,2060. These refer to Ceres, Pallas, Juno, Vesta, and Chiron, respectively. “Click here to show the chart” is located just below. (Or select these items in the box marked "Additional Objects.")

Once you know the house and sign each falls in, and determine any aspects, especially conjunctions with the Moon, Sun, chart ruler, Ascendant or midheaven, you can start researching what these mean for you. It’s also worth noting if the asteroids were in retrograde and learning how that energy might affect your life. http://www.alwaysastrology.com/ is a good starting point, but there are endless resources to explore.

Example
My Vesta is in Cancer.  My Juno and Pallas Athena are in Aquarius.  My Ceres is in Pisces.
Vesta in Cancer is devoted to serving others. They are a natural care giver and just want to be needed. When they don't feel appreciated they may withdraw. They have a strong feeling of responsibility to family and home. This may overpower any personal desires. They are willing to make this sacrifice, which may make them appear rather cold. They are intuitive. They are healers full of compassion. They may take the pain of others into themselves in an attempt to heal them. They need to learn to heal themselves.

Juno in Aquarius wants a relationship that gives them their freedom. They are rather unconventional and may prefer open marriages or other alternatives. They may also remain single yet enjoy the whole "friend with benefits" concept. They aren't necessarily for equality in a relationship. They may either play the adoring mate or want their partner to be subservient to them. They appreciate eccentricity in their partner. They are progressive and friendly instead of passionate. They may be rather insecure at times. They are spontaneous and impulsive. They want someone who understands them and their needs and goals.

Pallas Athena in Aquarius sees all the future possibilities. They may find healing with the electrical energies in the body like vibration, color, crystals, sound and light work best for them. They want to create something new and exciting. They may focus their creativity on computer graphics, science fiction art or new wave music. These are the artists who teeter on the cutting edge. They are the revolutionaries defending humanitarian causes around the world and who organize protests from grass roots. This combination makes patterns that are sheer genius, or maybe a bit insane. They are gifted in solving the most difficult of problems with unusual solutions.

Ceres in Pisces reflects the emotions of those around them. They want to understand and help people through emotional crises. They are truly compassionate and they supply this through nurturing. They love anything imaginative. It fills them with good feelings and makes them feel nurtured. When feeling down, they may feel helpless or abandoned. They need time alone to de-stress and re-energize themselves. Water is calming. Self-acceptance may depend on their ability to be selfless.

Chiron in Pisces is always in crisis. This is a universal level crisis, nothing small ever hits this combination. They may be religious or spiritual crises that keep this combination in a tizzy. They may be at risk for depression or drug use. They may feel they have lost faith with the universe. They may feel guilty even though there is no reason to feel that way. They may play the victim. They have an innate ability to attract those down on their luck and they try their best to help. They need clarity. Disillusionment and betrayal can make life seem harsh. They must learn that sometimes things happen for a reason. By examining their problems, they may find deeper insight and connection.

New Moon Nov. 29th



On November 29th, the Moon is New.  The Sun and Moon are conjunct at 7 degrees Sagittarius, which is Pairaba Tourmaline (keyword Allurement).  The Sabian Symbol for that degree is "Cupid Knocking at the Door of the Human Heart."  A new moon in Sagittarius suggests adventure, travel, sports, publishing, optimism and being upbeat.

Asteroid Juno is so close to the new moon that it will have a major influence in your life over coming weeks. Juno is the wife of Jupiter and goddess of marriages, unions, and finance. She is also very jealous and aggressive.
Fixed star Antares with Juno and the new moon adds heat and intensity to love relationships. You may feel a sense of urgency and impulsiveness to rush into a commitment or separation. Sex may be used to assert dominance or power and there is an increased risk of insincerity, affairs and even rape and violence.

Read about the New Moon Nov. 29th by Astrology King

The Sun and Moon appear to be briefly squaring Neptune opposing the North Node.  Neptune is at 9 Pisces, which is Yellow Jasper (keyword Practice). The North Nodes is at 8 Virgo, Mangano Calcite (keyword Assistance; I don't have this stone).

Transiting Sun square Neptune has a weakening effect on your vitality, making it hard to get motivated or enthusiastic about anything, especially hard work. As well as being allergic to work, you will also be more susceptible to some psychological and health issues.

Events or other people can cause confusion and disappointment, which may force you to battle against the odds. It is normal under this influence to feel insecure, guilty and apologetic. Seeing only the best in people increased the chance of becoming disillusioned or worse. Over idealization and gullibility can lead to loss, scandal or slander.

Mercury has recently been conjunct Saturn.  Mercury is at 25 Sagittarius, which is Alunite (keyword Emulation; which I don't have yet). Saturn is at 17 Sagittarius, which is Yellow Prehnite (keyword Rebirth).

Venus is conjunct Pluto and they are square Jupiter.  Venus is at 20 Capricorn, which is Petalite (keyword Worship). Pluto is at 15 Capricorn, White Howlite (keyword Abundance). And Jupiter is at 16 Libra, Blue Fluorite (keyword Respite: I used another color) Jupiter is opposing Uranus at 20 Aries, Rhodochrosite (keyword Hospitality).

Also, Mars is at 15 Aquarius, which is Rose Quartz (keyword Affirmation).  Neptune went direct on the 20th.  The Sun will square Neptune on Dec. 1st. Chiron is at 20 Pisces, which is Pewter (Familiarity).

I have a black Moonstone to represent the New Moon.

Fixed Stars of Presidential Candidates 2016

Previously I looked at the fixed stars of Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders in this post.

The main fixed star conjunctions of Hillary Clinton are her Sun conjunct Princeps in Bootes (where we find Arcturus), her Moon conjunct the beta star in Zeta Reticulum, her Jupiter conjunct Alpha Centauri, her Uranus conjunct Saiph in Orion, and her South Node (or past life karma) conjunct Arakis in Draco.
ARCTURUS With Sun: Success through slow and patient plodding, friends among clergy, favorable for gain and for dealing with the public and lawyers. [Robson*, p.139.]
Note: her Sun is conjunct Princeps in the same constellation (Bootes).

ALPHA CENTAURI With Jupiter: Great ecclesiastical or legal honor and preferment, ritualistic tendencies, success in foreign countries, favorable for gain. [Robson*, p.149.]

BETELGEUSE With Uranus: Quick, active and evil mind, clever criminal, notorious as forger or counterfeiter but rarely caught, quiet pleasant manner, generous and not bad at heart, possesses hypnotic and thought-reading powers. [Robson*, p.148.]
Note: her Uranus is conjunct Saiph in the same constellation (Orion).


DRACO Influences: According to Ptolemy the bright stars are like Saturn and Mars. Draco gives an artistic and emotional but somber nature, a penetrating and analytical mind, much travel and many friends but danger of robbery and of accidental poisoning. It was said by the Ancients that when a comet was here poison was scattered over the world. By the Kabalists it is associated with the Hebrew letter Mem and the 13th Tarot Trump "Death." [Robson*, p.43.]



The main fixed star conjunctions for Donald Trump are his Sun (Mintaka), North Node and Uranus with stars in Orion, his moon with Ras Alhague in Ophicus, his Mercury and Saturn with stars in Canis Major (where we find Sirius), his Venus conjunct Procyon, his Mars conjunct the Royal Star Regulus, his Neptune and Jupiter conjunct stars in Bootes (where we find Arcturus), and his Pluto conjunct Giansar in Draco.
MINTAKA with Sun: Discreet, cautious, somewhat changeable. [Robson*, p.177.]


RAS ALHAUGE With Moon: Public prominence in religious matters, favorable for gain. [Robson*, p.193.]

SIRIUS With Mercury: Great business success, help through influential people, worries unnecessarily, associated with the Church, physical defect through accident. [Robson*, p.209.]
Note: Mercury is actually conjunct Mirzam and Furud in the same constellation (Canis Major).

PROCYON With Venus: Many benefits from influential friends, associated with the Church, favorable for gain. [Robson*, p.192.]

SIRIUS With Uranus: Gain and prominence in Uranian matters, help from influential friends, gain through harmonious marriage, especially if male, sudden death. [Robson*, p.209.]
Note: Uranus is actually conjunct Wezen in the same constellation (Canis Major).


REGULUS With Mars: Honor, fame, strong character public prominence, high military command. [Robson*, p.197.]


DRACO Influences: According to Ptolemy the bright stars are like Saturn and Mars. Draco gives an artistic and emotional but somber nature, a penetrating and analytical mind, much travel and many friends but danger of robbery and of accidental poisoning. It was said by the Ancients that when a comet was here poison was scattered over the world. By the Kabalists it is associated with the Hebrew letter Mem and the 13th Tarot Trump "Death." [Robson*, p.43.]

ARCTURUS With Jupiter: Benefits from legal and Church matters, influential position, danger of hypocrisy gain through foreign affairs or shipping. [Robson*, p.140.]
Note: Uranus is actually conjunct Wezen in the same constellation (Bootes).


ARCTURUS With Neptune: Ingenious, business instincts, changeable, and loss through this means, mediumistic and rather negative, associated with societies as an official, loss and misfortune in middle age which hastens death, favorable for friendship, partnership, marriage and success, greatly dependent upon advice of marriage partner. [Robson*, p.140.]
Note: Uranus is actually conjunct Wezen in the same constellation (Bootes).

Testimonial: 
"Thanks Jane for the really quick result!  A lot of very helpful information here, which will take me some time to digest.  I like the way that both Taurus and Scorpio seem a little in sync — Scorpio's classic vintage (which I love) and Taurus's classic luxury would both seem to work for a modified type 4 — a yin type 4 if you will.  I must say again that I appreciate all you do.  You are such a resource for those of us who like the idea of a type but can't completely fit into one system."
