Personality Trait Asteroids



"Many of the nearly 19,000 asteroids are named after mythological characters, but there’s a cool sub-category of named asteroids that I’d call the ‘personality trait asteroids’. I call these the personality trait asteroids because instead of being based on archetypes (‘the smothering mother’, ‘thievery’, ‘abusive husband’) that are connected to Greek myth, these are simply the Latin or Greek base of words that have very easy to understand meanings in English."



(9) Metis
Metis was a Greek Goddess most commonly associated with prudence and wisdom; she was known as the “wise counsellor”.

(24) Themis
Similar to Metis, Themis is an asteroid that is about wisdom, “good counsel”, divine order, and natural law. According to one source: “Themis is untranslatable. A gift of the gods and a mark of civilized existence, sometimes it means right custom, proper procedure, social order, and sometimes merely the will of the gods (as revealed by an omen, for example) with little of the idea of right.”
I’ve personally found that Themis people are upstanding and honourable. Sometimes they have ‘seeing’/clairvoyant skills: Themis was one of the famous oracles of Delphi. Themis is also connected to the three “Moira” fates: Klotho, Lachesis and Atropos.

(31) Euphrosyne
Named after one of the three Greek Graces (Thalia, Aglaja & Euphrosyne), whose name means “cheerfulness” or “joy.”

(37) Fides
Truthful, honest, trustworthy.
See also: (524) Fidelio, (490) Veritas

(39) Laetitia
Gay, happy. Also, quite clearly, for someone named Laetitia, this can double as a name asteroid.

(53) Kalypso
Although asteroid Kalypso has loads of different meanings, it can also talk about ‘hidden’ desires, talents, and relationships. Check the chart and planet conjunctions to understand more.

(55) Pandora
Pandora is both an asteroid as well as a Moon to Saturn, here we only speak about the asteroid Pandora. Many of are familiar with ‘Pandora’s Box’; this asteroid is named after the very same lady who famously released evil energy into the world by opening a box sent to her by the Gods. Similar to the Christian myth, Pandora was the original woman, fashioned out of water and earth, and of course, everything wrong with humanity is her fault (eye roll).
Pandora’s themes include: curiosity, especially curiosity that ‘kills the cat’,  initiating change through curiosity, unintended consequences, caught off-guard, restlessness, rebelliousness, meddling troublemaker.
(58) Concordia
“Peace.” Peaceful, seeking of peace, agreements, agreeable.

(59) Elpis
“Hope.” Hopeful (when afflicted, shows disappointment or lack of hope).

(72) Feronia
Related to the word ‘feral’ but nowhere near as negative in meaning: wildlife, fertility, health and abundance. A great asteroid for someone who loves to be at one with nature or live off-grid.

(109) Felicitas
Felicitas was the Roman goddess of happiness.

(111) Ate
Goddess of blind folly, rashness, infatuation, and mischief. Ate was said to be behind the curse that started the Trojan War. Ate may show where one is likely to respond to real or imagined threats in an exaggerated fashion.

(134) Sophrosyne
Greek for “Prudence.”
See also: (9) Metis, (474) Prudentia.

(144) Vibilia
“Journeys.” Individuals may be involved in long journeys, literally or figuratively.

(185) Eunice
Named after one of the Greek Nereids, whose name meant “happy victory” or “good victory.” Indicates good luck and fortunate outcomes.

(193) Ambrosia
Long life, long-lasting.

(245) Vera
Latin for “true.”
I adore the asteroids Vera, Veritas, Fides or Fidelio in a love reading – always a great sign!
See also: (275) Veritas, (524) Fidelio, (37) Fides

(251) Sophia
Sophia is Greek for “wisdom”. Sophia in close aspect shows where we may have above-average wisdom or insight.
See also: (275) Sapientia, (3402) Wisdom

(269) Justitia
“Justice.” Where one gives or receives justice, a predilection for fairness, justice may also be a dominant life theme.

(274) Philagoria
“Fond of assembly.” I’ve found this asteroid in the charts of those behind social resistance movements as well as the organizers of a young mothers’ book club! Suggests someone fond of gatherings of all sorts – look to nearby planets and the house/sign for greater understanding.

(275) Sapientia
Latin for “wisdom”. Sapientia in close aspect shows where we may have above-average wisdom or insight.
See also: (251) Sophia, (3402) Wisdom

(280) Philia
Greek for “love”. “Philia” love was very different than erotic love (“Eros”); Philia is more indicative of friendship and brotherly love.

(294) Felicia
“Lucky” or “happy.” When prominently placed in a chart, indicates joy, luck, happiness.

(306) Unitas
“In unity”. Asteroid Unitas may show where we are able to work in unity with others, or, where we may be “unified” to projects, visions or dreams.

(309) Fraternitas
“Fraternity” or brotherhood, brotherly love, friendly. As example: Fraternitas conjoined Mercury (communications) may indicate someone who communicates to others in a friendly, warm, brotherly way.
See also: (367) Amicitia

(315) Constantia
“Constancy”, consistency. Useful when placed in good aspect to relationships, business partners or creative projects.

(367) Amicitia
Friendship, friendliness.

(370) Modestia
“Modesty.” Modesty, or if afflicted, poor sense of modesty.

(380) Fiducia
Trust, trustworthiness.

(389) Industria

(408) Fama
Fame, reputation, notoriety, ardent communicator; inversely, asteroid Fama can also indicate a tendency for infamy, gossip, and scandals.

(424) Gratia
The “three graces” of ancient Greece: splendor, mirth, good cheer. In the charts of those with asteroid Gratia in a prominent place, you may expect a refined, erudite manner applied to whatever planet is in aspect.

(430) Hybris
“Hubris”, excessive pride, arrogance or foolishness that leads to an inevitable downfall. Over-confidence. Any behaviours that challenge the “gods” of your life (parents, partners, bosses).

(446) Aeternitas
“Eternity”, long-lasting, forever and ever-ness.

(451) Patientia
“Patience”, endurance, perserverance.
See also: (975) Perseverantia

(454) Mathesis
Indicates an incredibly studious or academic individual; someone devoted to the pursuits of intellect or the mind.

(474) Prudentia
“Prudence.” Indicates how and where someone is likely to be prudent, judicious or wise.

(480) Hansa
Mercantile ability, talent for commerce, trading, exchanges.

(490) Veritas
“Truth”, truthfulness. Veritas was a Roman Goddess often appearing naked with a mirror (“the naked truth”!).
See also: (37) Fides, (524) Fidelio

(494) Virtus
“Virtue.” Can indicate virtue, virtuousness, power and excellence.

(524) Fidelio
Latin for “faithful”. Also: trustworthy, honest.
See also: (37) Fides, (490) Veritas

(567) Eleutheria
Named after the Greek Goddess of freedom and liberty, these individuals need freedom, space to roam, victory.

(652) Jubilatrix
“Woman who rejoices.” Rejoicing, exceptionally joyful.

(660) Crescentia
Latin for “Increasing” or growing. Wherever it is placed, I’ve seen increase or growth – in the 2nd House of Money/Property, I’ve had a client put an addition on their home.

(662) Esther
Persian for “Star.” Esther was a biblical character responsible for intervening to prevent a genocide againt the Jewish people. Similar to (944) Hidalgo, asteroid Esther shows where we may fight for other’s rights, be called to activism or be a “rescuer.”

(679) Pax
Latin for “Peace”. Peace, peaceful, relaxed, calm, harmony. Can indicate calm home environments or peaceful mannerisms, depending on the natal chart placement.

(829) Academia
“The world of universities and scholarship”. Can show up in the charts of individual highly dedicated to higher education or academic pursuits, for both professors and students alike.

(902) Probitas
“Uprightness, honesty”, from the Latin probus ‎(“good, excellent, honest”), appropriate.

(905) Universitas
“All turned into one”, from the Latin uni- ‎(“one”), + versus ‎(“turned”); united, combined. Incidentally, this asteroid in my experience is not connected to ‘university’, e.g. the higher education institutions. Best to check (829) Academia for education-related.

(944) Hidalgo
Asteroid Hidalgo was named after the revolutionary priest who tried to overthrow Spanish rule in Mexico. Common themes of this asteroid include: activism, a revolutionary spirit, an upstart, defending or fighting for one’s beliefs, a highly principled person; one who fights for minorities, the powerless, the weak or the wounded.

(975) Perseverantia
Perservenerance, dedication, endurance, discipline. Never giving up.
See also: (451) Patientia

(996) Hilaritas
“Hilarity”, hilarious, funny, comedic, entertaining.

(1224) Fantasia
“Fantasy”, delusions, living in a fantasy world; living in a dream world. Easily fooled or manipulated.

(1247) Memoria
“Memory”. Can indicate someone who will leave a lasting impression, or uses memorization skills as part of their work (translators, orators, et al).

(1464) Armisticia
Peace-making, effective negotiator.

(1589) Fanatica
“Fanatic”, fanatical, extremism, zealotry.

(1685) Toro
Aggression, boundless strength, control and power; power struggles; strong-willed; macho.
Not bad unless afflicted in the chart. I don’t like it when Toro crops up around a personal planet like Venus, as it can sometimes indicate violent or intense and aggressive relationships.
(2440) Educatio
“Education”, studies, rearing or bringing children or young people.
See also: (829) Academia

(2579) Spartacus
Like the movie! Except it really stands for the actual real-life leader of the slave revolt in Rome. Themes can include activism, revolt, breaking of bonds, oppressive authority.
See also: (944) Hidalgo, (627) Esther.

(3402) Wisdom
Wisdom, sensible, experienced, knowledgeable, having good judgement.
See also: (251) Sophia, (275) Sapientia

(5708) Melancholia
Sadness, depression, melancholy, mournful.

(6630) Skepticus
“Skeptic” from the Latin word scepticus(pronounced “skepticus”), which is derived from the Greek word for thoughtful, skeptikos. Doubtful, incredulous, uncertainty, suspended judgment.

The Asteroids of Pain, Loss, and Abuse





(5) Astraea
Staying until the bitter end. While this may show someone with perseverance, the asteroid Astraea more often indicates someone who stays in a bad job/relationship/friendship far too long or doesn’t know when to let go.

(6) Hebe
While asteroid Hebe normally indicates service-oriented work, such as clerks, waiters or administrative assistants, I’ve also known Hebe to show up in relationship readings where one of the partners was a slave to the other.

(18) Melpomene
Grief, loss, mourning. Next to any of the love asteroids (Amor, Eros, Psyche) this can make for disastrous or painful love affairs, and can even indicate death or loss of a partner.

(28) Bellona
Bellona was the Roman Goddess of War. While not necessarily bad (it can stand for an assertive, power-house type of personality, particularly in women), Bellona strongly placed in charts can be extremely confrontational or willing to fight.

(55) Pandora
Pandora is both an asteroid as well as a Moon to Saturn, here we only speak about the asteroid Pandora. Many of are familiar with ‘Pandora’s Box’; this asteroid is named after the very same lady who famously released evil energy into the world by opening a box sent to her by the Gods. Similar to the Christian myth, Pandora was the original woman, fashioned out of water and earth, and of course, everything wrong with humanity is her fault (eye roll).
Pandora’s themes include curiosity, especially curiosity that ‘kills the cat’,  initiating change through curiosity, unintended consequences, caught off-guard, restlessness, rebelliousness, meddling troublemaker.

(56) Melete
Melete is connected to the Greek word for anxiety, and as such, can indicate anxiety disorders, panic attacks and other forms of mental anguish.

(60) Echo
Echo was the fairy-like creäture that fell in love with Narcissus but was ignored and held in disdain by him. Eventually, she became such a shell of a being that all that was left of her was her echo.
When poorly afflicted, Echo individuals do not believe in themselves, copy others, have little original thought, have no self-esteem or self-worth or have a hard time valuing/defending them against narcissistic partners.

(71) Niobe
Grief, sorrows. Niobe loses her entire family.

(73) Klytia
Jealousy especially acts driven by jealousy that end poorly, a tattle-tale, a gossip. Desperate, senseless romances. Being in love but being ignored.
Klytia was in love Apollo (or Helios, the Sun God), but he had another lover. Dejected, Klytia told Apollo’s potential father-in-law, who killed his own daughter as a punishment for her actions. With Apollo’s love gone, Klytia hope’s to be snatched up by her paramour – but he once again ignores her, and she withers away on a rock, staring at him until she dies.

(84) Klio
Asteroid Klio is commonly associated with history, storytelling, and writing, so is not a ‘bad’ asteroid per se. However, when asteroid Klio is poorly aspected in the chart, there can be an attachment to ‘history’ or to the story that keeps running in one’s mind, which leads to a type of neuroses about the event, person or situation.

(111) Ate
Goddess of blind folly, rashness, infatuation, and mischief. Ate was said to be behind the curse that started the Trojan War. Ate may show where one is likely to respond to real or imagined threats in an exaggerated fashion.

(128) Nemesis
Nemesis, enemy, downfall, revenge.

(157) Dejanaira
Abuse, violation of physical boundaries, sexual abuse. I have seen asteroid Dejanaira come up time and time again as a reliable indicator of childhood abuse, especially sexual abuse.
See also: Nyctimene (2150)

(171) Ophelia
Although asteroid Ophelia has many themes, many astrologers have noticed a link between this asteroid and accidental drownings.

(208) Lacrimosa
“Weeping”, tears, grief, sadness.

(239) Adrastaeia
“Who does not flee”; “the inescapable one”. Asteroid Adrastaeia can show those who do not leave abusive situations, or, can show moments and traumas where we were unable to escape, as in the case of abusive childhoods. This asteroid can also talk about areas of wounding we cannot escape, such as alcoholism or drug abuse.

(248) Lameia
Grief at losing a child, sterility, sleeplessness, trauma, PTSD, intense jealousy from other women, ‘vampires’ (Lameia sucks the ‘lifeblood’ out of young men).
Lameia had affairs with Zeus and had many children from him. Hera killed all of her children as a punishment. She became overcome with grief, unable to sleep, and thereafter alternated between sucking the life out of young men or murdering other people’s children.

(273) Atropos
Asteroid Atropos is one part of the “Moira” fates (in addition to Klotho & Lachesis). Atropos as a theme has a relationship to endings of all kinds: relationships, business, death, accidents, and illness.

(258) Tyche
Tyche was the Greek Goddess of Fortune, so when afflicted can show poor fortune or luck.

(381) Myrrha
Can indicate incest, sexual abuse or sexual relationships that go against ‘natural law’ (bestiality, incest, et. al.).

(399) Persephone
Persephone’s story is one of the great myths of Greece. I say great, but as we’ll see, it quickly turns into not so great.
Persephone (aka Proserpina)  is attached to her mother Ceres – they are the best of friends and completely inseparable. Persephone is well-known for her beauty but constantly rebuffs marriage proposals to stay as a companion to her mother. One day Persephone is out picking flowers when the God of the Underworld Pluto (aka Hades) kidnaps her; he makes her the Queen of the Underworld. Nice having a title and all, but surely not one’s first choice. To protest, Persephone stopped eating when she was in the Underworld. Eventually, her mother finds her and negotiates a life where she will live above ground 6 months of the year, and below the other 6.
Persephone and Proserpina’s themes are separation anxiety, separation from the parents, rape, retreating into fantasy after a trauma, loss of innocence, being ‘pulled into the underworld’, PTSD, addictions, abduction, food complexes and/or anorexia, relationships with ‘Plutonian’ partners.
Nota Bene: it’s possible this myth has been twisted, and many people note that in some versions of the myth Persephone willingly went into the Underworld with the dark and sexy Pluto.
Also look at (26) Proserpina.

(407) Arachne
Weaving, woven items, weaving things together, jealousy of god-given talents, talents that lead to pain or persecution, arrogance, boastfulness.
Arachne was an incredibly talented weaver and compared herself to the Gods (and actually, said she was better than them!). She unknowingly challenged a disguised Athena, Goddess of weaving, to a weaving duel. In the end, Arachne can’t go without diminishing the Gods, therefore royally pissing of Athena, who as punishment turns her into a spider.

(430) Hybris
“Hubris”, excessive pride, arrogance or foolishness that leads to an inevitable downfall. Over-confidence. Any behaviors that challenge the “gods” of your life (parents, partners, bosses).

(588) Achilles
The asteroid Achilles is one of my key tools, alongside (3811) Karma and (2060) Chiron. Achilles is incredible for highlighting potential areas of deep wounding, or the ‘achilles heel’ of the chart when prominently placed in the natal chart.

(638) Moira
Moira is derived from the Greek word ‘the fates’. Moira’s location by sign and house can indicate an area of life that is governed by fate or karma. Moira may show ‘negative’ karma in a chart or a very fated life.

(849) Ara
Asteroid Ara is only bad, per se, when poorly positioned or afflicted within a natal chart. Normally, asteroid Ara would show where and how one is likely to give aid or be aided by others. When opposed or squared by natal planets, Ara can stand for a lack of aid, care or support.

(896) Sphinx
Secrets, hidden things, mysteries. Bill Clinton had the asteroid Sphinx next to the asteroids ‘Paul’ and ‘Monica’. Need I say more?

(897) Lysistrata
Asteroid Lysistrata refers to the heroine of an infamous Greek comedy of the same name. The women of Greece, led by Lysistrata, led a protest of sexual abstinence against all men until they stopped the perpetual wars.
When badly afflicted, Lysistrata can talk about someone that uses sex as a tool of manipulation or power.

(1198) Atlantis
Related to the mythical, lost kingdom of Atlantis, asteroid Atlantis can also talk about excessive pride or hubris that leads to a downfall, as well as extinction, cultural snobbery, a sense of imminent doom, expiation; use of karma to rationalize events.

(1277) Dolores
Pains, suffering. Can indicate illness and agony.

(1489) Attila
Named after Attila the Hun, the famous barbarian warrior. When afflicted, this asteroid can indicate a kind of ruthless, all-or-nothing brutality to winning or victory.

(1566) Icarus
Accidents, excessive risk, gambles that don’t pay off, moving too fast, driving too fast, games of speed/risk. Muhammad Ali had Icarus next to his Sun – talk about speed!

(1685) Toro
Aggression, strength, and power. Not bad unless afflicted in the chart. I don’t like it when Toro crops up around a personal planet like Venus, as it can sometimes indicate violent or intense and aggressive relationships.

(1808) Bellerophon
Overreaching, fatal crashes, being disabled or ‘crippled’ in some way.
Read about Bellerophon in the chart of JFK Jr.

(1866) Sisyphus
Unending suffering and struggle. Being forced to do the same thing over and over. Draining monotony. Stuck in a vicious cycle of rebuilding.
Sisyphus was punished by being forced to roll a boulder up a mountain every day, only to awaken the next morning and find himself again at the bottom of the mountain. Groundhog Day, for Greeks. He was later freed by Heracles.

(1896) Beer
Just like it says on the tin: Beer is commonly found in strong positions in the chart of heavy drinkers, or those who have or have had issues with alcohol.

(1912) Anubis
Anubis is named after the jackal-headed Egyptian God of the Dead. Often, Anubis strongly placed in a chart means that death is more than a passing issue; death may become the focus or a recurrent theme in the individual’s life.


(2102) Tantalus
‘Tantalus’ is closely related to our modern word, ‘tantalize’. Themes here include: always out of reach, never getting what you want, testing others, taunting others, nearly having it, temptation without satisfaction.
The myth of Tantalus is pretty full-on. Originally known for having stolen ambrosia from Mount Olympus and taking it down to humans (therefore revealing the secrets of the Gods to humans), he then served up his dead son’s body parts to the Gods of Olympus. As punishment, he was kept in a pool of water with branches of fruit above him. Whenever he was thirsty and tried to drink the water, it would evade him; when he felt hungry and reached for a piece of fruit, the branches would lift out of reach.

(2060) Chiron
Chiron was the first centaur discovered and equally the most well-known of the mythical centaurs; arguably Chiron is the most important of all the centaurs. He was the son of Saturn and a sea-nymph. Early on, he is abandoned by his mother (his first ‘wounding’), who is horrified at his half-man, half-human form; he is soon taken to the Sun god Apollo, who teaches Chiron everything he knows about the healing arts. Chiron is later wounded by an arrow from Hercules. The wound never heals despite his healing knowledge, which explains Chiron’s well-known nickname as the “Wounded Healer”.
Chiron’s themes include the “wounded healer” archetype, learning through suffering, compassion for others’ suffering, resistance to pain, “liminal” reality, pre-birth influences, ancestral influences, exile, healing, transformation.

(2150) Nyctimene
Nyctimene is a particularly painful asteroid. Nyctimene was the daughter of a prominent man, who is seduced by her father. She hides away in the forest out of shame and is turned into an owl by Athena (note, that of course, owls are a nocturnal bird).
Nyctimene in a birth chart closely aspecting the Sun, Moon, Venus, or strongly placed in the 5th or 8th Houses has on several occasions indicated issues of incest, rape, and abuse by the father or father figure.

(2938) Hopi
This asteroid is named after the Hopi tribe of North America. Hope has an Astrological connection with ambush, attacks, prejudice, territorial disputes, Native Americans, minority experiences. Ambushes can be psychological as well as physical.

(3200) Phaethon
Phaethon is generally associated with out of control, dangerous behaviour, people that get carried away, car crashes and accidents.
Phaethon was the son of the Sun God, Helios. He asked his father if he could drive the chariot of the sun – but when he took the reins things span out of control rather quickly. The Sun chariot ended up scorching Africa, accounting for it’s desert areas; eventually, Zeus struck him off the chariot to save the world and Phaethon died.
Read about Phaethon in the chart of JFK Jr.

(3811) Karma
Karma, like Achilles and Atropos, is one of my absolute go-to asteroids. Asteroid Karma stands for exactly what it should: Karmic connections, relationships, pain or circumstances that go back lifetimes. Sometimes in life we may feel that certain events were ‘fated’ or pre-told. Asteroid Karma is a great indicator of such energy within a birth chart.

(4451) Grieve
Grieve, grief, mourning, sorrow.

(5335) Damocles
“The sword of Damocles” is quite well known as an expression: in short, it encapsulates the danger that rulers/leaders live with as a by-product of their power. Said another way – with great power comes great responsibility.
Generally in chart readings, I see Damocles in the chart of very powerful and successful people (investment bankers, military generals). On the other hand, their jobs/success/position stifle their ability to have a relationship, spend time with family, or have true friends. This is where asteroid Damocles can come in.

(6630) Skepticus
Skepticus means skeptical, skepticism, doubting or discerning. This doesn’t have to be a bad asteroid whatsoever, as I’ve seen it prominently placed in the charts of journalists and researchers, as an example. However, when Skepticus is placed very near to asteroids like the Moon or Venus, the ‘skepticism’ carries over to emotions and/or love, creating an impossible situation.

(8690) Swindle
Lie, cheat, fraud, steal. Swindle has got it ALL. Would it surprise you if Swindle shows up prominently in the chart of the Donald?
No, no it would not.

(26955) Lie
Lies, liars, lying. Not much more to say than that – when you find this little dude in close aspect to someone, run. Especially potent when used to look at charts for business transactions and mergers.

(37117) Narcissus
I’m sure according to Narcissus, I’ve saved the best for last. Narcissus is naturally named after the infamous Narccissus, who loved himself so much that he became transfixed with his own image and committed suicide when he could not have the object of his desire.
Narcissus obviously talks about grandiose consideration for one’s self, disapproval or disinterest in others, self-obsession and the anger that comes from being spoiled, or not getting what you want.

The Asteroids of Healing



'This is a work in progress, but I wanted to group together some of the more ‘spiritual’ asteroids that may indicate in someone’s chart if there is a potential for spiritual/mystical healing, energy work or similar. Many of these also work in traditional medicine situations like nursing and surgeons."


(7) Iris
Iris was the ‘rainbow’ Goddess, whose name has become synonymous with the coloured part of our eyes as well as providing the base of the word iridescence. 
Iris was known as a messenger and communicator, so themes here can include psychic capability, oracular work or chanelling.

(10) Hygeia
HYGEIA was the goddess of good health and the daughter of the medicine-god Asklepios (Asclepius). Her sisters included Panakeia (Panacea= Cure-All) and Iaso (Remedy). Hygeia means ‘good health.'
Asteroid Hygeia is about medical concerns and health (especially issues related to fitness); “hygiene” and cleanliness. According to Demetra George, Hygeia is involved in maintaining ‘health through right living with nature.' I tend to see this as an asteroid that can also talk about naturopathy, Ayurvedic healing, homeopathy or other natural/alternative healing methods

(158) Koronis
Koronis was the one-time lover of Apollo as well as the mother of the healing lineage that included Asclepius and his sons Makhaon and Podalirius. Interestingly, she is also the mythical reason why all crows are black.
Robert Graves suggests that the myth of Koronis represents the suppression of medical practice by women and its transference into the hands of the patriarchy (in the myth, Apollo cuts open Koronis to remove the baby Asclepius). From this time, physicians were called asclepiades and the profession was passed only from father to son.

(432) Pythia
Pythia was the original ‘oracle at Delphi’: a seer, clairvoyant, prophet and all-around psychic power. Asteroid meanings tend to be the same: someone with psychic or prophetic faculty.

(1027) Aesculapia
Aescualpia is the Roman equivalent of Aslcepius, so all the same rules apply.
See also: (4581) Asclepius

(1862) Apollo
Apollo was the Olympian god of prophecy and oracles, healing, plague and disease, music, song and poetry, archery, and the protection of the young. He was the father of Asclepius (Aesculapia). He also taught Chiron, the centaur, about healing.
Asteroid Apollo can have the following meanings: provocation, defying the odds, naiveté, healing, being a healer, ‘physicial heal thyself’ (which was one of his inscriptions), clairvoyance, being a ‘seer’. Being a slow learner—attraction of recurrent and familiar crises; “banging your head against a brick wall.
Similar to: (1027) Aesculapia, (4581) Asclepius, Chiron

(2878) Panacea
Panacea was the Greek goddess of cures and panaceas. She worked with her father, the medicine-god Asclepius. Hygeia (Good Health) was her sister, interestingly. Other sisters included Iaso (Remedy) and Akeso (Healing), but there are no asteroids for them.
Asteroid Panacea can have the following meanings: someone who works with salves, essential oils, herbs or plants to bring about healing; natural healers, good outcomes in medical situations. According to Martha Lang-Wescott: What you believe it takes to find solutions, cures or remedies for problems (and not only those related to the health).
Similar to: (10) Hygeia (4581) Asclepius

(3063) Makhaon
Makhaon was the brother of Podalirius and son of Asclepius.
Asteroid Makhaon is more likely indicative of a surgeon or traditional doctor, broken bones, and extracted items. By myth, he was a military surgeon, so there can be a military or aid link. Some astrologers use Makhaon as a timing factor for surgeries.

(4086) Podalirius
Podalirius was one of the sons of Asclepius and brother to Makhaon. Like Makhaon, he was skilled in the medical arts, although Demetra George gives him extra signifigance in saying he was 'god of internal diseases and invisible wounds to the soul.'
Asteroid Podalirius may involve medicine, medical treatment and internal disease.

(4581) Asclepius
Asclepius was the Greek god of medicine. Asclepius was the son of Apollo and princess Koronis. His mother died in labour and when she was laid out on the pyre, Apollon cut the unborn child from her womb. From this Asclepius received his name which means "to cut open." Asclepius was raised by the centaur Chiron who instructed him in the art of medicine. He grew so skilled in the craft that he was able to restore the dead to life (using drops of Medusa’s blood which was given to him from Athena). This was a crime against the natural order and so Zeus destroyed him with a thunderbolt.
Asteroid Asclepius can have the following meanings: doctors, nurses, medicine, shamanism/shamanic healing (bring people back from the dead), prophetic dreams, being a ‘healer.'

(4946) Askalaphus
Askalaphus was one of the ‘son of styx’ that worked in the Underworld in service to Hades (Pluto). He is best known for declaring that Persephone had eaten the pomegranate seeds, which confirmed that her sexual awakening and inability to move freely above ground.

Mark Andrew Holmes says ‘the ability to be silent or discreet, being indiscreet, informing, making trouble, bringing about transformations, being looked upon with dismay, apprehension or revulsion, and also medical attention and things pertaining to doctors or medicine’ are related to asteroid Askalaphus, as well as ‘health-care workers and informants.'

The Asteroids of Music, Dance, Art & Writing



"This is a work in progress, but I wanted to group together some of the more ‘artistic’ asteroids, that if prominently seen in a person’s birth chart may indicate a talent in music, dance, art or writing."



MUSIC, ART, DANCE
(27) Euterpe
Named after the Greek muse of lyric poetry and music, who some myths say invented the flute. She is also said to have a special affection for “wild” melodies. Prominence in a natal chart may indicate a talent in wind instruments, wild music, music ability or musical ear.

(33) Polyhymnia
Named after the Greek muse of singing, mime, rhetoric and dance, who was a daughter of Zeus and Mnemosyne (who herself was equally talented in manners of voice and recitation). Can show talent in singing, dance, mime and rhetoric.

(40) Harmonia
Asteroid Harmonia is one of the better-known musical asteroids and can indicate musical talent, singing, or the ability to harmonise a balance between forces (musically, or otherwise).

(52) Mnemosyne
Mnemosyne was the Greek goddess of memory and was also the mother of the Muses. Mnemosyne deals with recitation, memory, oration and other performances that require memory.

(60) Echo
Echo was the famous fairy-like creäture that fell in love with Narcissus. Although I’ve never seen it come up in a chart yet, I’m still including it here as several astrologers note it as a musical asteroid indicating a beautiful voice, or great mimic.

(80) Sappho
Asteroid Sappho is named after the poet, artist, and educator of the same name that likely lived on the island of Lesbos in the 6th century, B.C. While some astrologers mainly use Sappho as an indicator for sexuality (which can sometimes be correct – not always), I prefer Demetra George’s interpretation of asteroid Sappho (from here): ‘Astrologically, Sappho serves as an intermediary in the octave [between] Venus and Neptune. […] Sappho taught of the need to love both men and women, and to honor the healing power of love in whatever form it presents itself.’
Themes for asteroid Sappho include sensitivity or bonding with the same-sex, sensuality and sexuality, emotional extremes in love, poetic ability and feminine education in fine arts.

(81) Terpsichore
Asteroid Terpsichore was named after the Greek muse of dance and choral song. According to Martha Lang-Wescott, Terpsichore represents flexibility, agility, dance, body language and gestures, and movement. It may also indicate a disciplined physical exercise, movement, body ego, body image, and in my opinion, likely includes yoga and Pilates as modern forms of movement.

(443) Photographica
Photographs, visuals, visions, imagery of all kinds. Likely includes things like graphic design, advertising, et. al., but more often than not shows up prominently in the birth charts of photographers.

(566) Stereoskopia
I don’t have experience with this asteroid but list it here, albeit hesitantly. Apparently, several astrologers have seen this one show up in the birth charts of DJ’s, musicians, and similar-minded individuals.

(713) Luscinia
I love this little asteroid. Luscinia is the proper name for nightingales.  The song of the nightingale has been described as one of the most beautiful sounds in nature, inspiring songs, fairy tales, opera, books, and a great deal of poetry. Here I’ve seen great singers, folk artists and poets alike.

(775) Lumières
This asteroid was named after August & Louis Lumière, who may have been the first cinematographers in the world; applicable in certain charts where cinematography, movies, acting, and even technological inventions are important.

(1864) Daedalus
In Ancient Greek, daidala refers finely crafted objects. Daedalus was a master craftsman: he created wings for his son Icarus’ ill-fated flight and constructed a labyrinth to trap the Minotaur. In Daedalus, we can see a designer, an architect and a great mind for creation.

(3256) Daguerre
Louis Daguerre was famous as a pioneer of photography, and most notably, the ‘Daguerreotype’ process of photo-making. I haven’t used this asteroid before but wanted to list it here as it may obviously intersect in the chart of someone for whom photography is their chosen art.
See also: (443) Photographica

(9633) Cotur & (5439) Couturier
Full disclosure, I have not used these asteroids yet but have always been fascinated by them. I feel they MUST show up in the charts of famous fashion icons, most likely in aspect to either Venus (love, beauty, art) or Ceres (who herself was partly the Goddess of textiles and fabrics).

(52975) Cyllarus
Cyllarus is not an asteroid but a Centaur. The best key word I can suggest for Cyllarus is DIVA. Everytime I’ve seen this come up in a reading significantly, the person in question is incredibly talented, and equally demanding (even if they have not quite reached that station in life yet…!).
Material wealth, harmony, status, rank, self-worth, artistic abilities and endeavours. Can also be selfish, demanding, greedy or obsessed with their ‘artistic needs’ being met.

WRITING
(22) Calliope
Calliope was the Greek muse of epic poetry, so her placement in a chart can indicate a poet, writer, storyteller or entertainer of sorts.

(23) Thalia
Calliope was the Greek muse of comedy, so her placement in a chart indicates a natural talent in comedy or entertainment; this person may be a natural talk show host or class clown.

(62) Erato
Named after the Greek muse of lyric poetry and music, who some myths say invented the flute. She is also said to have a special affection for “wild” melodies. Prominence in a natal chart may indicate a talent in wind instruments, wild music, music ability or musical ear.

(84) Clio (or KLIO)
Clio was the Greek muse of history, and as such, shows up prominently in the charts of historians, writers, researchers, academics and anyone that dedicates things to the written record (even diary or journal keepers).

(114) Kassandra
Kassandra was a gifted prophet who was punished by Apollo for not accepting his advances; the punishment she was given meant that no one would believe her prophecies, even though they were true.
I find Kassandra tends to show up in the charts of orators, speakers, activists, broadcasters and research journalists that operate right on the edge of breaking stories that run against the current status quo. Due to the nature of their stories, a certain amount of cognitive dissonance is created and the greater public does not always see or believe their point of view.

(946) Poesia
Poesia is exactly what it says it means: poetry. Can of course indicate a poet, but can also render create a poetic thinker (Mercury-Poesia), creator of art/beauty (Venus-Poesia) etc.

(2876) Aeschylus
Aeschylus was considered the father of Greek tragedy and as such, writers here can be dramatic storytellers compelled by darker narratives or intense family/relationship conflicts.

(12608) Aesop
Aesop was the famous writer of ‘Aesop’s Fables’.
Here we can see allegorical writing, moral stories, children’s writing, folk tales, verbal histories or a great storyteller.

(31824) Elatus
Elatus is not actually an asteroid, but a Centaur.
According to Mark Stein’s site (which has exhaustive information on the lesser-known asteroid bodies):
“Expression of self and ego through word and writing. Positive: Excellent communication, articulate, precise. Negative: Verbose, boastful, shallow in conversation.[…] Elatus seems to indicate expression, expressiveness, eloquence, to mislead, to deceive (possibly oneself); possibly “dodging a bullet.”

The Love Asteroids



"Oh, love ♥. There’s nothing sweeter in life (says a 7th House Neptunian).
Whenever I’m looking at a client’s chart and they want to know about love, I always start out with a few core love asteroids: Amor, Eros, Psyche & Juno, as starters. These 4 asteroids especially can give a good description of our attitudes in love, and when in aspect to our partners somehow, show potential dreamboats/nightmares."


The ‘Big Four’ Love Asteroids - Amor, Eros, Psyche & Juno
Conscious, Cosmic Lovers: Psyche & Eros

Psyche (16)
“...Psykhe was so special and distinguished that our poverty of human language could not describe or even adequately praise it."
-Apuleius
Psyche (asteroid number 16) meant “soul” in ancient Greek as well as “butterfly”: the story of Psyche is not just about love lost, and love re-found, but about a deeper transformation within the soul/mind (the psyche!), growth and self-actualization, as well as how conscious, fully-expressed love can connect us with the divine.
 
Psyche's themes in asteroid astrology include psychic sensitivity, the capacity for psychic sensitivity, capacity to understand and care for others, transformation of the soul through romantic love, self-transformation, self-awareness, the search to know ourselves, the unconscious self, transformation/growth through loss, learning, the pursuit of real/honest/conscious love, the search for a divine love.
Eros (433)
"[Eros] that winged, most indiscreet youth [...] He goes rampaging through people's houses at night armed with his torch and arrows, undermining the marriages of all. [...] nothing that he does is worthwhile."
-Apuleius
Eros (asteroid number 433) means something along the lines of 'erotic, sexual desire' in Greek, but he was more commonly known as the rather mischievous God of Love, his Roman equivalent being the winged messenger Cupid. Eros represents the attraction and 'falling' part of a love story - those first few exchanges that leave us with butterflies in our stomachs.
Eros' themes in astrology include vitality and passion, romantic love, passionate attachment, conceptualization of attraction, sexuality, eroticism, passionate romance and 'being turned on'. I often find that Eros, when not in aspect to typical love planets or asteroids, can show up in an area of the chart that turns us on - a place where we have infinite energy and interest. 
Amor (1221)

Amor (asteroid number 1221) was the ancient Roman god of love, who is not to be confused with Cupid or Eros. Unlike Cupid or Eros, Amor does not represent a lustful, erotic love; the better understanding of his type of love is an unconditional, active, loving - love while in motion - as opposed to an infatuous love. This is real, everyday love.
Demetra George says that "Amor expresses a loving kindnesss that is given without judgment or expectation of return." My feeling with Amor is that this asteroid speaks to the kind of love that exists between parents and children, owners and their pets, humanitarians and society. There can be a drive with Amor, and sometimes too much so, to give abundantly and take care of others.
Juno (3)

Juno (asteroid number 3) was the great, revered wife of Jupiter and the Queen of Heaven. Known mostly as the Goddess of Marriage, Juno was also the protector of women as they moved through their lives fulfilling each of their subsequent role: maiden, wife, mother, crone. 
Juno is a powerful indicator of relationships and marriage, as Ceres is the same for fertility and childbirth. Additionally, the themes of Juno in asteroid astrology include infidelity (Jupiter was a prolific womanizer), pathologies of unfulfilled relationships (jealousy, suspicion), sacrifice, fears of abandonment, betrayal and sexuality, manipulation.
More Love Asteroids
Check to see if any of these asteroids come up in aspect in synastry or in your chart. 
Listed Randomly; Ctrl+F to search for keywords.

(1) Ceres
Ceres (aka Demeter) is not useful as a romantic love asteroid, but as she's the 'great mother', she does talk about particular aspects of love, namely those that are more familial, nurturing, caretaking-based or particularly doting (as in the case of a mother-child relationship). The shadow side of Ceres can indicate an obsessive or suffocating love nature. 
See also: (1108) Demeter
◊ 
(2) Pallas
Pallas (aka Athena) is also not a typical love asteroid, but she can present telling details into issues concerning love when prominent within the chart.
With Pallas-Athena, we can subjugate our femininity, put aside our sexual nature, prefer friendships to romantic partners, seek companions instead of lovers, lovers may be both friend and lover, our sexual expression may be confusing to others (sometimes, via androgyny or asexuality), we may challenge stereotypical sexual/romantic expressions, alienate lovers and partners, or prefer our creative pursuits to romance. 
See also: (881) Athene

(3) Juno 
See above.
See also: (103) Hera

(4) Vesta
Vesta (aka Hestia) is most commonly known as the archetypal 'nun' of the asteroid goddesses; her concern is mostly that of focus, dedication and spiritual service. She did, however, have a primary role in the sexual rites and ceremonies of her time, so Vesta has an undeniable link to sexuality. In today's world, the role of Vesta's archetype has become distorted, instead of being seen as a sacred part of religion.
As it relates to love and sex, the asteroid Vesta can indicate (especially when stressfully aspected) sexual disorders and complexes, frigidity, impotence issues, fertility issues, prostitution, pornography, prolonged virginity, fear of sex, antiquated concepts of sex as sin, sexual shaming. 
See also: (46) Hestia

(62) Erato
As one of the Greek Muses, Erato was the muse of lyrical (romantic!) poetry. Erato connections in synastry can show a poetic, lyrical, romantic love that is expressed in song or words.

(672) Astarte
Astarte is the Hellenized version of Ishtar (7088), the Sumerian deity of fertility, love, beauty and war. Both Astarte and Ishtar are likened to Venus, as they were both deities based on the appearance of the planet Venus in the sky.
In a chart, both Astarte and Ishtar work similarly to Venus, however, it's important to note that Astarte/Ishtar is also about WAR, so when I've found this strongly placed in a chart the individuals there can be a bit of a Lillith type of vibe, or a Kali Ma creation/destruction theme. 

(1943) Anteros
After Eros, Psyche, and Amor, this is my favourite love asteroid. Anteros was one of the 'erotes', the winged squad of Aphrodite (of which Eros/Cupid was one as well). There were actually a few of these guys: Himeros ("Impetuous Love" or "Pressing Desire"), Hedylogos ("Sweet-talk"), Hymenaios ("Bridal-Hymn"), Hermaphroditus ("Hermaphrodite" or "Effeminate"), and Pothos ("Desire, Longing," especially for one who is absent).
Anteros is about "love received". It can show how you partner shows affection, or when poorly aspected, the ways in which love or affection can be blocked in reaching you. Equally, Anteros represents an unrequited love that is avenged. 

(1388) Aphrodite
Every so often I meet someone that has a seriously troubled Venus, yet they have a great marriage, fat bank account, and good looks. What gives? Aphrodite, my friends. It can be good to double check your asteroid Aphrodite against Venus, being that they are one and the same deity. 
Aphrodite rules many similar domains as Venus: sex, love, beauty, romance, connection, friendships, femininity, beauty, home, art, assets.

(3497) Innanen 
Asteroid Innanen is named for the ancient Sumerian Goddess Inanna, her name meaning "Lady of Heaven" and her significations include love, beauty, sex, fertility, and war. Inanna was known as being cutting, demanding, capricious and even treating her lovers quite poorly. In her infamous journey into the Underworld, she chooses her husband Dumuzi as her replacement in Hell so she may return to the world of the living. Unlike a more softened female deity like Venus, Inanna is intense and fiery.
In a chart, Innanen can show intense relationships, strong-minded females, and 'journeys to the Underworld' with our partners. 

(7088) Ishtar
Astarte (672) is the Hellenized version of Ishtar, the Sumerian deity of fertility, love, beauty and war. Both Astarte and Ishtar are likened to Venus, as they were both deities based on the appearance of the planet Venus in the sky.
In a chart, both Astarte and Ishtar work similarly to Venus, however, it's important to note that Astarte/Ishtar is also about WAR, so when I've found this strongly placed in a chart the individuals there can be a bit of a Lillith type of vibe, or a Kali Ma creation/destruction theme. 

(8490) Companion
Companion is a great asteroid for sussing out who may or may not make a great long-term live-in partner for you.

(1585) Union
Asteroid Union is especially useful to me when looking at marriages and (eek!) divorces. 
Check out how Union showed up in the Brexit Chart

(447) Valentine
"Sweet comic Valentine", or so goes the song by Chet Baker. Valentine is a lovely asteroid to check out in a synastry chart. It's a little bit low in meaning compared to some of the other mythical asteroids, but can be useful.

(393) Alma
Alma means "soul" in both Spanish and Italian; the Latin base is closer to "kind" in translation. Either way, asteroid Alma can be used in synastry charts. Like Valentine, I don't consider it a heavy-hitter, but if it is placed exceptionally prominently, it could indicate a kind-hearted, soul-level connection.

(432971) Loving
Just as it says on the tin: asteroid Loving can show a kind, loving connection. 

(29391) Knight
I haven't used this asteroid a ton, but I like the idea of it as a 'knight in shining armor' kind of thing. Will be interested to hear if this shows up for anyone!

Asteroid Pairings: Iconic Romantic Couples
Check to see if any of these asteroids come up in aspect in synastry or in your chart - the asteroid numbers are included for you. In particular, many astrologers consider a Psyche-Eros contact as indicative of soulmate material.

(16) Psyche & (433) Eros
(5731) Zeus & (103) Hera
(37117) Narcissus & (60) Echo
(2174) Asmodeus & (1181) Lilith
(134340) Pluto & (399) Persephone/(26) Proserpina
(1923) Osiris & (42) Isis
(3361) Orpheus & (75) Eurydice
(2101) Adonis & (3497) Innanen

Double-Bodied, Half-Human




The centaurs of astrology are incredibly interesting part of the astrological maṇḍala; they fall somewhere between animal and human, sometimes guided by noble ideals and other times by destructive primal urges. ‘Centaur' means “those who round-up bulls” and they are known for their wild behaviour, lewdness, and love of wine.
Interestingly, the centaurs are doubly double-bodied, as they are both asteroid and comet as well as half-human, half-horse. Found in the Kuiper belt of asteroids between Jupiter and Pluto, the Centaurs have been named and numbered since 1992.
I really loved what Philip Sedgwick wrote about the Centaurs (from The Astrology Book), so I share it here:
“Given that Centaurs at large contain bulls, they tame the beast (within), control negative urges, and bear a responsibility to the symbolic bull’s eye. This marksmanship returns to the concept of original sin, missing the mark, also denoting distance from God. [...] Many stories about clouds prevail in Centaur mythology. The air again gains significance with these creatures. The scent of wine travelling through the air causes a major Centaur incident, as did words traversing the air. Similarly, myths involving the contamination of water exist. Overall, an environmental impact begins to form in Centaurian symbolism. Can the emphasis of the bull - money, real estate, greed - be tamed? Or will developments, populations, and over-building polish off what’s left of the purity of Earth? [...] What about the concern with sexuality, drinking, drugs, and morality? Can the animal instincts alive in human nature be controlled?"
The centaurs can tell us a lot about where we’ve come from and where we’re headed. I hope you enjoy working with these ancient symbols in your own chart.
Find out how to work with and include asteroids in your birth chart here.

The Centaurs

ASBOLUS (8405)
Asbolus had a vision about the massacre of the centaurs and tried to warn everyone; no one listened.
Clairvoyance or ’seer', ‘Kassandra’ Syndrome (see asteroid Kassandra), humiliated for being “weird”, peaceful efforts, conflict resolution, wish for a good reputation. Negative associations include: reckless regard for reputation, lack of integrity, impulsiveness.
AMYCUS (55576)
Seeking or establishing fame, exquisite, ethereal.
BIENOR (54598)
Talent, life force, stamina, activity.
From Zac Stein: Strength of will, determination to see something through, integrity, standing for your principles in all circumstances.
CHARIKLO (10199)
Chariklo was the wife of the Centaur, Chiron. Incidentally, she was not actually a centaur - she was a mermaid - but she shows up here nonetheless. Her only story of note is when she intervened on behalf of Teiresias when he was blinded by Pallas Athena; Chariklo begged Pallas to reconsider and eventually she made Teiresias a ‘seer’.
Healing work, rituals, guided meditations, the feminine way, companions, compassion, empathy, fairness.
CHIRON (2060)
Chiron was the first centaur discovered and equally the most well-known of the mythical centaurs; arguably Chiron is the most important of all the centaurs. He was the son of Saturn and a sea-nymph. Early on, he is abandoned by his mother (his first ‘wounding’), who is horrified at his half-man, half-human form; he is soon taken to the Sun god Apollo, who teaches Chiron everything he knows about the healing arts. Chiron is later wounded by an arrow from Hercules. The wound never heals despite his healing knowledge, which explains Chiron’s well-known nickname as the “Wounded Healer”.
Chiron’s themes include: the “wounded healer” archetype, learning through suffering, compassion for others’ suffering, resistance to pain, “liminal” reality, pre-birth influences, ancestral influences, exile, healing, transformation.
CRANTOR (83982)
“Oh woe is me?”, self-victimisation, self-pity, accepting your responsiblity in your fate.
CYLLARUS (52975)
Material wealth, harmony, status, rank, self-worth, artistic abilities and endeavours. Can also be selfish, demanding, greedy or obsessed with their ‘artistic needs’ being met.
ECECHLUS (60558)
Balancing abstract thinking and logic, balanced perspective, ability to be completely one’s self.
ELATUS (31824)
“Well-expressed”, self-realization through writing and creative works, those talented in word, speech or artistic expressions. Articulate and precise, but also boastful and verbose.
HYLONOME (10370)
Hylonome was the wife of the centaur Cyllarus (and one of the rare female centaurs). When she saw her husband killed in battle, she committed suicide in grief by thrusting herself on the same javelin that had impaled him.
Hylonome’s themes include: grief, pain, suicide, poor boundaries in love, inability to separate one’s self from one’s partner.
NESSUS (7066)
Nessus acted as the ferryman for Hercules’ wife Deianira (asteroid Dejanaira, if you are interested) when they were fleeing the Underworld. While Hercules swam across, Nessus was overcome with lust and attacked Deianira; Hercules then struck Nessus with a poisoned arrow. And long story short - eventually Nessus killed Hercules from beyond the grave: he had convinced Deianira that his blood and semen would ensure Hercules’ faithfulness to her.
Nessus’ themes are: a wolf in sheep’s clothing, a user and abuser, rape, assault, acts of violence, black magic, STD’s, AIDS, diseases transmitted by blood (hepatitis, for example).
OKYRHOE (52871)
Temperance, balance, making life-altering changes, accepting destiny. Clarity, impeccability and loyalty to personal and emotional needs, praising, complimentary. To be criticized, to brush aside criticism, to be able to listen to oneself.
PELION (49036)
Good citizenship, initiation, to earn one's keep or not, chopping wood and drawing water both before and after enlightenment; distrust, cynicism, paranoia, disbelief in altruism, manipulation, darkness, the cruelty of reality, waking up to the way things are; a period of extreme popularity, which diminishes over time, but never completely, and becomes the base for future developments.
PHOLUS (5145)
The name ‘Pholis' means “snake-like” and therefore connects to his role in healing, kundalini and augury. Pholus is generally seen as one of the kinder-hearted centaurs, and his themes include: divination, wisdom, sacred wine (my personal feeling is this includes entheogens like Ayahuasca, San Pedro, etc.), altered states of consciousness (possibly Shamanic states of consciousness?), homeopathy, consulting an oracle, kundalini, reclaiming innocence, transformation.
On the other hand, Pholus died by accidentally picking up a poisoned arrow during the massacre of the Centaurs, so other themes include: mass killings, accidental death, euthanasia, the act of ending in pain or suffering, letting go of an assumed sense of wrongdoing, retreating from attack, avoiding conflict.
THEREUS (32532)
 Over-attachment to one’s career and career reputation, creating balance between work and relationships, status seeking, mercenary, easily stunned by beauty and glamour. Being accepted and valued by others. “I am what I am because of my career”.
