Asteroids in Astrology

111+ Most Common Asteroids in Astrology: Hidden Meanings Revealed

Asteroids were only discovered in the 19th century. Their use has become as significant as finding a parking spot during rush hour for a few Western astrologers, yet still only a minority of astrologers bother to include the asteroids in their chart interpretation.

Back in the 70s, astrology got a cosmic upgrade thanks to Eleanor Bach. She published the first asteroid ephemeris in 1973.

In 1986, after the release of Asteroid Goddesses by Demetria George, their use became more popularized and widespread.

However, the meaning of most asteroids in astrology is still not strongly established nowadays, except for some major asteroids, such as Ceres, Pallas, Juno, Vesta, Chiron, Eros, Chiron, and Lilith.

I’ve researched many articles and resources to compile a complete list of 119 popular asteroids for you. However, the study of asteroids is still at its infant stage, so this article suggests tendencies and potentials. It serves as a subjective guidance for your self-development.

So let’s strap in and explore the magical world of asteroids!
