The asteroid belt is a packed place, but astrologers have adopted a few as our own. Since Venus and the moon are the only ones representing the feminine force in the chart, we’ve turned to the asteroid belt to fill in the blanks. Many of the asteroids are named after the female family of Jupiter—his daughter Pallas Athena, his sister Ceres, his wife Juno. Some of the asteroids are even considered minor planets and dwarf planets, meaning that they orbit around our Sun even though they don’t have enough mass to earn full-on planet status. But their placement in our astrological charts certainly packs a punch.
