Introduction to the Asteroids Report
Asteroids orbit around the Sun just as planets do, but they are generally smaller than planets, and some of their physical characteristics and orbital characteristics are different from those of planets. Some objects are classified as being dwarf planets, and these objects are more similar to planets than most asteroids but do not fully have the characteristics that are typical of a planet. Pluto was once regarded officially as a planet but has been reclassified as a dward planet, and the asteroid Ceres is now widely regarded as a dwarf planet.
Of the hundreds of thousands of asteroids that orbit around our Sun, over 1,000 of them have been given names that are related to myths, legends, literary or historical figures of interest, or places. Some astrologers believe that asteroids have a significance and relevance to human life just as the planets do, and that the astrological significance of the asteroid is often related in some way to the name of the asteroid.

Sun Conjunct Jeanne, Orb: 0 deg. 07 min. This asteroid was named in honor of Jeanne Arend, the daughter of its discoverer, Belgian astronomer Sylvain Julien Victor Arend.
Jeanne is a French female name cognate with the English names Joan, Jean and Jane. One of history's most celebrated Jeannes is Jeanne d'Arc (1412-1431), the national heroine of France. Guided by heavenly voices, Jeanne d'Arc led the French armies to an unexpected victory against English invaders in the Hundred Year's War. Burnt at the stake for heresy at the age of 19, she later became a Catholic saint. Jeanne is the French feminine equivalent of the name John. John is derived from the Hebrew Yochanan, meaning "HaShem is gracious". HaShem literally means "the Name", and refers to the solitary god of Judaism. Yochanan was the name of several important rabbis of the Second Temple period of Israel. It was a common given name in Judea and Galilee around the time of the invasion of the Roman empire. Translated into Greek as Ioannes, the name also became popular with Early Christians. The Christian figures of John the Baptist (Yochanan ben Zechariah) and John the Apostle (Yochanan ben Zibhdi) also bore this name.

This asteroid was named in honor of English astronomer, alchemist, mathematician, physicist, natural philosopher and Christian theologian Sir Isaac Newton (1643-1727). Newton's tome Philosophae Naturalis Principia Mathematica (1687) is considered one of the most essential texts to Western scientific thought. In it he described the concept of universal gravitation, as well as his three laws of motion. These laws laid the foundation for classical mechanics and dominated the scientific worldview for centuries after Newton's death.
Newton practiced an unorthodox form of Christianity and wrote extensively on Biblical interpretation. He also invented the first reflecting telescope, developed a theory of color, developed an empirical law of cooling, studied the speed of sound, sought the famed Philosopher's Stone of alchemy, and translated occult works such as the Emerald Tablet of Hermes Trismetigus.

It was founded in 588 BCE by Greek colonists from Kerkyra.
The city was named in honor of the god Apollo. Apollo was the twin brother of Artemis, goddess of the wilderness, hunting and the Moon. He was among other things a Solar god, being conflated with Helios. He was associated with the "clear light" of the Greek ideal of moderation, order, reason and harmony as well as with the life-sustaining light of the Sun.
Like his sister, Apollo delighted in hunting and athletic activities. He is often depicted in art with a bow and arrow, as a patron deity of the sport of archery. He also patronized the palaestra, an ancient Greek meeting place for athletes. As a god associated with truth and clarity, Apollo was also intimately involved in the practice of prophecy. Many oracular shrines were dedicated to him, most notably the Oracle of Delphi. There he was invoked for knowledge of remote and future events as well as the will of the gods. Apollo also aided in the mending of wounds and the healing of ills. He fathered Asclepius, the god of Medicine.

In this poem the character of Una symbolizes the Protestant Christianity espoused by Queen Elizabeth. She is imagined by Spenser as the emissary of Truth and the embodiment of the "True Church". She is accompanied by the Redcrosse Knight, a personification of the nation of England. Together they endeavor to save Una's ancestral castle from a monstrous Dragon. Una and the Redcrosse Knight defeat Duessa, a character iconic of the Catholic Church and corresponding to Mary, Queen of Scots, Elizabeth's religious and political enemy.
The Irish female given name Una may be derived from the Irish uan, meaning "lamb". In Christian iconography, lambs are symbolic of innocence and purity.
This asteroid may grant relevancy to the religious tradition of Protestant Christianity. Concepts of truth, virtue, righteousness and spiritual purity may be emphasized. The historical period of Elizabethan England may also become a matter of personal importance.
Moon Opposition Antiope, Orb: 0 deg. 15 min. In Greek mythology, the name Antiope refers to two different women. It is unclear which of them this asteroid was intended to be named for.
One Antiope was an Amazon warrior. She was distinguished by being the only Amazon to marry a man. She married Theseus, the legendary founder-king of Athens.
The other Antiope was the mother by Zeus of Amphion and Zethus. These semi-divine twins played an essential role in the foundation of the city of Thebes. They built the walls around the Theban citadel. Amphion was a musician taught by the god Hermes. He moved the stones of the wall into place by luring them with music. Zethus built his part of the wall in a more conventional manner. He was a strong hunter and herdsman unopposed to manual labor.
Both Antiopes were closely associated with characters involved in the founding of city-states. This asteroid may confer intimate relationships with people who initiate lasting traditions or begin great undertakings. It may also give marital harmony (owing to the legend of the former Antiope).

Moon Opposition Empedocles, Orb: 0 deg. 55 min. Empedocles (490-430 BCE) was a pre-Socratic philosopher hailing from the Greek colony of Agrigentum on Sicily. He is credited with originating the cosmogenic theory of the four Classical elements (Earth, Air, Fire and Water). Empedocles proposed the existence of two forces, which he referred to as Love and Strife, controlling the unification and separation of the four elements.

This asteroid may bestow a keen interest in philosophical, psychological and spiritual matters You may actively investigate the mechanisms of the universe. Poetic ability may blossom.
Moon Opposition Hekate, Orb: 0 deg. 36 min. In the ancient Greek religion, Hekate was the chthonic goddess of doors, gates, crossroads and liminal states as well as herbalism, sorcery, birth, childcare and death. She often played a similar role to that of her psychopompic colleague Hermes, guiding the souls of the dead to the Underworld. Conversely, she also aided in nursing the young. Shrines to Hekate could be found near the doorways of ancient Greek dwellings, as well as by the convergence of roads. The protection of crossroads was another divine occupation linking Hekate and Hermes. As a guide by night and in the Underworld, Hekate is often portrayed in ancient art holding a torch. She was also commonly associated with dogs, and in some myths transformed into them. In the Egyptian-inspired esoteric writings of Late Antiquity, Hekate is described as having three heads; one canine, one equine and one serpentine. Although originally portrayed as a single figure, later depictions of Hekate show her in triple form. Her epithets Trimorphe, or "Three Formed", and Triodia, or "Of the Three Ways", also attest to this. In Roman times Hekate was known as Trivia, a Goddess of the Crossroads whose name means "Three Roads". It is from Trivia's name that the modern English word trivia, meaning common knowledge from the street, is derived. Other epithets of Hekate include; Chthonia, "Of the Earth/Underworld"; Enodia, "On the Way"; Kourotrophos, "Nurse of Children"; Propulaia, "Before the Gate"; Phosphoros, "Giving Light"; Apotropaia, "Protector"; Soteira, "Savior"; and Kleidouchos "Holder of the Keys". In her aspect as herbalist and sorceress, Hekate reared the most famous witches of Greek mythology; Circe and Medea. Her extensive knowledge of the uses of plants was unrivaled. Cypress trees, often linked in antiquity with the Underworld, were especially sacred to her, as were yew and garlic. In addition to dogs, snakes and horses, she was also allied with frogs, as their amphibious existence mirrored her own liminal nature. Red mullet fish were also associated with this goddess. Hesiod called Hekate "(She) whom Zeus son of Cronos honored above all". She predates the Olympians, yet survived the defeat of the other pre-Olympian gods. Her parents are sometimes cited as Perses, a Titan of Destruction and Asteria, a primeval Star Goddess. Alternately they are mentioned as Gaia and Uranus, the Earth and the Sky. Asteria's sister Leto gave birth to the goddess Artemis, with whom Hekate was sometimes conflated. She was also associated by Lucius Apuleius in his book The Golden Ass with the Egyptian goddess Isis. The worship of Hekate was most likely imported to Greece from Caria, a land in western Anatolia (or what is modern day Turkey). There she was revered as the Great Goddess. Her most important temple was located at Lagina. She was also the patron of the nearby Macedonian colony of Stratonikeia. Many theophoric names honoring Hekate, such as Hecataeus, originated in this area. Long after the end of the Classical age, Hekate remained in European folklore as an old and sometimes terrifying hag figure. She retained her position as pyschopomp, accompanying ghosts and spirits of the night. In the Shakespearean play Macbeth she appears briefly as the spiritual cohort of the Three Witches. This asteroid was the hundredth to be discovered. The Greek word for hundred, hekaton, shows linguistic similarities to this deity's name. The influence of this asteroid may emphasize the themes relevant to this goddess You may become involved in medicine, pharmacy, midwifery, or the care of young children. Helping people find their way at the end of life is a favored occupation. There may also be a tendency to serve as a guide or pathfinder. Roads, crossings, doors and gates both physical and metaphorical may play a crucial role in life. Many diverse aspects of life may be experienced.
