Klytia Meaning Astrology

Asteroid Klytia Meaning in Astrology: One-Sided Love

In Greek mythology, Klytia (sometimes spelled Clytia or Kleio) was a water nymph, and the sun god Helios was her one and only love.

Klytia watched Helios daily as he rode his chariot across the sky, and she grew so infatuated with him that she forgot about her responsibilities.

When Helios realized Klytia felt this way about him, he eventually turned her down. Klytia sat on the ground for nine days, looking at the sun with her wounded heart.

Witnessing Klytia’s plight and her unwavering de­votion, the gods felt compassion and chose to transform her into a sunflower that fore­ver gazes at the sun. 

Therefore, Klytia in your natal chart can indicate bitterness, resentment, jealousy, and a desire for vengeance when your aims are unfulfilled. This can certainly include romantic pursuits, but it could also be any passionate affair involved.

As one of the love asteroids, Klytia is also a harbinger of an unhealthy obsession, of becoming hopelessly enamored with someone who doesn’t care about you in return.

A transiting planet’s aspect to Klytia, or vice versa, will herald a moment of intense, yet fleeting, romantic attraction. There can be a lack of control over the outcome, and there are times when you are just quite disappointed.

In synastry, contacts with Klytia can indicate someone who you can’t resist their charm or who becomes overly fixated on you.

According to Serpil Mostra, the secret to dealing with Klytia is realizing that the outcome is sometimes out of your control and that you must learn to let go even if it causes you a lot of pain.
