View Full Version : asteroid names: first or last name?

If you are checking to see where a person is placed in your chart, do you go by the first or last name? If there isn't an asteroid name with the first name can you use their last name instead??

I have played around with asteroids a bit, and have not found a hard-and-fast rule. Perhaps you could cast a wide net at first, and input any asteroids with names that relate to you or the person of interest, and see what comes up. I would suggest looking at any asteroid whose name is the same as:
1. first/given name
2. last name
3. cognates of 1 and 2, notably names that mean the same thing in another language. For example, John, Johann, Hans, Ian, Jan, and Jean are all equivalent to the English name John.
4. Then sometimes it can be really uncanny how an asteroid will conjunct a personal planet, notably in synastry--i. e., your "personal asteroid" conjuncts your parent's or SO's sun or other personal planet.
5. There also can be other correspondences: someone's favorite artist's asteroid conjuncts his Venus, or someone's favourite songwriter's name conjuncts a personal planet.
What have you found so far?

Waybread- the last name of the person I am currently interested in is located in my natal 7th/Aquarius(he is an old friend of mine) at my Venus/Mars midpoint and is currently being hit by a Neptune transit ,which would explain the miscommunication and confusion I am experiencing with this person right now and is also located on the 7th cusp in my progressed chart.I couldn't find his first name in the asteroid list so I used the last name. I also notice that his name is nearly conjunct my Venus in the solar arc progressions! The first name of the previous person I was involved with is conjunct my progressed venus in a sign and house that fits that person's description.
It seems to make sense, but I need more time to research. It will be interesting to see if anything develops with the 7th house person. Cool though, isn't it?:p
