Asteroids, Houses, & the Great Attractor

I’ve been exploring asteroids tonight. I found a cool ephemeris tool that can tell you where up to 1000 asteroids were at your time of birth. If you sort by degree you can see where all the different asteroids, centaurs, TNOs, dwarf planets, plutoids, uranians, and more lie in relation to the houses.

By traditional astrology I have a bunch of completely empty houses – all of my planets are between the sixth and the eleventh houses. And it’s true that my life is heavily weighted towards the external environment, relationships, and higher education/career… but it is reassuring to find the lesser-known players that inhabit the entire circle of the zodiac (really – they’re everywhere) and light up each one of the houses. For example, Pandora, Chaos, and Lilith inhabit the twelfth, and Apollo is sitting on the cusp of the 4th. It also lists both the Galactic Center and the Great Attractor – which I’d never heard of, but is a well-documented astrophysical phenomenon. I’d be interested to find out if any astrologers have experience working with the Great Attractor. It’s a fixed point, like the Galactic Center, and is about 13 degrees away from the GC at 13 Sagittarius.

Anyway, it’s a neat little tool. Find out where your minor planets are! Check it out!
