Asteroid Urania

Urania Goddess

In Greek Mythology Urania was one of the nine Muses, the eldest daughter of Zeus and Mnemosyne. Urania was the goddess of astronomy which was the same then as astrology. She is also associated with Universal Love and the Holy Spirit.

“To each of the Mousai men assign her special aptitude for one of the branches of the liberal arts, such as poetry, song, pantomimic dancing, the round dance with music, the study of the stars, and the other liberal arts . . . For the name of each Mousa, they say, men have found a reason appropriate to her : . . . Ourania, because men who have been instructed by her she raises aloft to heaven, for it is a fact that imagination and the power of thought lift men’s souls to heavenly heights.” [Diodorus Siculus, Library of History 4. 7. 1 (trans. Oldfather) Greek historian C1st B.C. ]

“Corymbus of Helicon . . . formerly the Musae’s friend, to whom Uranie herself, knowing full well his Stygian destiny, had long foretold his death by the position of the stars.” [Statius, Thebaid 8. 548 ff (trans. Mozley) Roman epic C1st A.D.]

“While Urania shows involvement with astronomy, astrology, mathematics or any kind of theoretical, abstract or symbolic knowledge, it is also the ability to extrapolate principles and relevant data from a mass of facts”. [Mechanics of the Future – Asteroids, Martha Lang-Wescott, 1988]

  1. Hi,
    I’ve been reading up on asteroids lately and your information on Urania made me look into it. Was great to notice it conjuncting my IC to the degree 🙂 Could really use a bit of cosmic TLC since I have already the Uranian planet Hades in there (ugh)…

    Must look further into your site, thanks for the info 🙂

  2. Urania conjuncts my natal Mercury in Libra, 4th house, which is conjunct Pluto in Libra, 5th house. I have studied astrology at home since I was 21. I remember being a 6 or 7 year old child and asking my mother about her Aries necklace. She said “I’m an Aries and your a Libra” and I remember being so interested and fascinated by that, but also left curious as to what that meant. I was always curious as a teen as to *how* the cookbooks came to the conclusions they did and I wanted to know the inner workings, I wanted to be the engineer and look into it more deeply. So I did. I studied with an Australian online school, joined the VAA, went to conferences, and have been a life long student (I’m 40 next month) and I have managed to keep this tool hidden. It’s a tool I have used for my personal and private life path of self-awareness. My home is full of astrology books, solar fire charts (of close friends and family that only inhabit my home get the privilege of my skills and I made a pact with myself as a 21 year old to only use the power of astrology for good because my path of self-awareness was chosen so I would do less harm to others as I saw first hand in my childhood the very definition of toxicity, harm, abuse, all out warfare, and threats by both father and sister that they will “end my life” – I, being blessed with a malignant narcissistic father, (also a martyr of a mother who ended up through cognitive dissidence from the idealisation phase and then devaluation stage with my father in Stockholm syndrome to him), and an 18 month older disturbed sister, who was clinically diagnosed with borderline personality disorder, was probably a bit on the psychopathic spectrum too and she ended up having 3 acute episodes of psychosis during her life (drug induced) and was diagnosed with paranoid schizophrenia. So roughly a few years after commencing study I found out through my step grandmother in Germany that my Opa was an astrologer. He was a mathematician at a university north of Hamburg and pre- computerised charts, hand-draw calculated charts. I met him once when I was 12, the only time he came to Australia. He was hidden from my family before then, even my own mother didn’t know he existed until her German-Australian father died, which she was deceived by her mother to believe was her biological one. My astrology-loving Opa hated my father, and I remember the entire visit was fought with conflict. I wonder now if he ever looked at my chart. My step-grandmother (his second wife) said he loved astrology. I went to Germany in 2004 and saw his astrological book collection. I was impressed and knew then in that moment he knew what the fuck he was doing. All the books were in German, and I do not speak or read German, but authors names don’t change :). My step-grandmother said I could take one of his books in the collection to keep. I took Dane Rudhyar “Astrologie der Personlichkeit”. I’ve gone through every page. On page 383 with the title “Widder” my grandfather has placed a bookmark of sorts with astrological info in German and underlined 11th house (hund) 1994. The year he died. Also on the first page in blue pen my Opa has handwritten “Kuchenbecker” – his last name. When I first started studying astrology one of the most standout first things I saw was that I should be studying psychology, the potential to be a psychologist was being handed to me if I was willing to do the work, because I was certainly able, and ethically-minded (Mercury trines Jupiter in Gemini conjunct my 26 degree Taurus ascendant (yes, I’m a feminist, one had to become one when confronted with Peruses always trying to take my power away). I ended up doing a Bachelor of Science and majoring in research methods and design and I did a Bachelor of Psychology and it all just happened like clockwork and I achieved high marks moving into health based research field, and later working in medical sales as the govt ceased funding govt-based research. I about to apply over the next 3 weeks, for my honours year, 12 years later, as Jupiter transits over Mercury conjunct Pluto in libra on 4/5th axis, and my solar return sun (23’13” Libra) is in the SR 9th house and my SR ascendant (27 Aquarius) falls in my natal 9th house (ruled by Aquarius, which is conjunct both my North Node and Mars in Scorpio, natal 6th). The SR ascendant is trine my natal Libra sun. My natal ascendant/Jupiter falls close to my SR nadir, and the SR moon is conjunct Uranus in Aries (and conjunct the arabic part of honorable aquaintences) in the SR 3rd House, opposing my natal Sun, squaring my prog moon (24 Capricorn, natal 8th), and squaring my natal moon in 24 degree Cancer. SR Venus at 27 Scorpio (conjunct the Arabic part of marriage) is angular in the SR 10th and closely conjunct the MC and conjunct my natal venus 24 Scorpio, which falls on my descendant natal, 2 degrees out in my natal 6th, but places my SR venus in my natal 7th, angular (double whammy with the angularity of it’s SR 10th house position, it’s in it’d own triplicity and face, giving it more strength and trines my natal Moon dignified in Cancer (natal 2nd) and all the while still my SR venus in scorpio falling on my natal descendant and conjunct my natal venus is conjunct the part of marriage! the dispositor being in the 11th house conjunct the antivertex and Mars exalted in Capricorn. My marriage is for love and it’s to psychology, and the opportunity to study has come from an ex who says he really wants to try to be friends now and offered help fund my rent so I can return to uni. And all the stress of being a strong independent woman, now lies in the hands of a tricky and difficult ex who I suspect my pull my house from underneath me at any time over the next year and I have no family to catch that kind of fall. It’s wild and stressful, but it’s a labour of love and passion all dressed up in opportunity and opportuniry is knocking, but it could just as suddenly be taken away or is that all in my head? This ex (with a mask of “friendship”) has financial power over me and I do not like it and I want to break free but this is an opportunity not to let fear and insecurities get in the way of… Right? This coming year is my once in a 12 year Jupiter transit through Libra, my 5th house, passing over mercury and pluto and ultimately toward my natal sun conjunct Spica. I was studying at uni 12 years ago and I also managed to travel around the world that same year and it was the best time of my life, but it was also the most stressful, not much money to travel with, went with an ex that was first my friend (although, not on the dark triad like I suspect the current one is and 100% trustworthy he had my best interests at heart. But, our security was totally uncertain and stressful and we didn’t always have a place to stay while we travelled, we slept in a hire car a few times and ate $1 cheese burgers twice a day while we drove from Banff to LA. It was still the best time of my life, both at uni and the semester I took off to travel on an around the world ticket.

    I hope you enjoyed my story of Urania conjunct my natal Mercury and the follow on story of Urania conjunct next months Jupiter in my SR chart, which also happened to parallel Mercury (which is conjunct Jupiter in the SR 8th).
