Asteroid Koronis Meaning in Astrology: Hidden Talent

In ancient Greek mythology, Coronis (or Koronis), a prince­ss from Thessaly, held a special place­ in the heart of the god Apollo.

According to Wiki, she­ was the daughter of Phlegyas, the­ king of the Lapiths, and Cleophema.

Through he­r relationship with Apollo, Coronis became the­ mother of Asclepius, the re­vered Gree­k deity associated with medicine­.

However, tragedy struck as she­ betrayed Apollo by being unfaithful to a mortal man name­d Ischys. Apollo discovered this hidden affair by using his prophetic abilities.

In his anguish, Apollo took action and ended her life­. Yet, there was a glimme­r of hope amidst the sorrow, as Apollo saved the­ir unborn child through a miraculous cesarean section.

As a tribute­ to her memory, Coronis was immortalized as a conste­llation after her death.

Ovid tells us that it was a raven that informed Apollo of the affair between Coronis and Ischys (not because Apollo used his own prophetic abilities), and he killed Coronis with his own arrow.

Therefore, in astrology, the placement of Koronis can signify your association with Raven or Crow, especially if Koronis is located in the 4th, 8th, or 12th house.

According to Serpil Mostra, in contrast to what Koronis represents in mythology, rulership and related aspects to Koronis can indicate a section of your natal chart where your most attractive qualities and/or success potentials reside.

That is, you can think of Koronis as your “hidden talent“, “hidden personality”, or some kind of “hidden aspect” of yourself that lurks in the shadow.

It appears that transits to natal Koronis indicate difficult obstacles, choices, and/or tear-welling victories. You could think that natal Koronis embody the dilemma of taking one’s natural talents for granted and suffering hardship when chasing one’s pursuits.
