Episode Description

Before the invention of the telescope, only the celestial bodies visible to the naked eye were used in astrology. Since the late 18th century, discoveries of new planets, asteroids, centaurs, trans-Neptunian and other objects in our solar system have been increasing the potential cast of characters that can be used in the horoscope. The feminine earth sign of Virgo is thought by many to be ruled by the asteroids. Using Virgo’s analytical skill, classification ability, and powers of synthesis we can use the asteroids in our horoscopes to gain a more perfect understanding of ourselves. Hear our guest, astrologer Jessica Adams explain why modern astrology is not complete unless we include the asteroids! Who are they? What archetypes do they represent in the Roman/Latin family tree? How do they round out the story of our horoscope and increase our self-understanding? Find out from Jessica which asteroids to include in your horoscope, and where you can find information about them.
