The definition of an asteroid, particularly in connection with Mars and Jupiter, is interesting, to say the least.
An asteroid is: A small rocky body orbiting the sun. Very many, varying greatly in size, exist between the orbits of Mars and Jupiter and in the world of astrology, harmonious Mars/Jupiter aspects are a marker of worldly comfort and financial acuity. Descriptions which apply to a person associated with Mars and Jupiter include the words: energetic, resourcefulness, frankness, outspokenness, pioneering and adventurous - as well as executive ability, an entrepreneurial attitude, defending one’s beliefs. Others include: enthusiasm, energy and looking on the bright side, whilst having a verve for travel, the big outdoors, sporting competitiveness and energetic exercise – perhaps including that of the mind, as well as an interest in general public affairs.
Now why could we think that Asteroid 8148 Golding =
1985 CR2 is in just the right place?
