A tale of two cars – There are several asteroids named after cars. Honda and Mercedes are two while the classic one is Phaeton. My son-in-law went on a weekend ski trip recently and found himself with a truck that couldn’t run and had to be towed a hundred miles plus. Big trouble with the vehicle. The next morning my daughter’s car also ended up needed towing and off he went to rescue her using mine. I couldn’t help looking at the asteroids so here they are. Honda andPhaeton were both aspecting his ASC. along with the midpoint Mercury/Saturn which is not only the midpoint for short journeys but also relates to trouble with vehicles. Transiting Jupiter was aspecting this point too and although we tend to think of Jupiter being a benefactor, it is also about being big and this car trouble was big and expensive! The asteroid Mercedes was aspecting his natal mars/Uranus midpoint, which is about sudden accidents or occurrences coming as a complete surprise. His truck is a Toyota with no known problems up to then and hers is an Audi. Both supposedly sound reliable vehicles. Oh those pesky asteroids!
A long delayed citizenship – I have a friend who sat for his citizenship test several years ago and after passing it has had the frustration of the papers sitting on someone’s desk with no action to make his citizenship official and final. For over three years he has been talking to everyone he could without any luck on finding out why it was being held up and getting it finished. A couple of days ago it finally came through for him. In his chart he has the asteroids America, Justus(justice) and Karma all aspecting each other. Transiting Uranus and Jupiter (sudden good luck, the release of tension) came along and set them all off and this time Jupiter was the benefactor. In transit, asteroid America was aspecting his Moon (home) and his natal Mars which rules the 4th house of home in his chart. One of the asteroids for Justice was inconjunct (coming out of the blue) his ASC. while the other one was aspecting his natal Venus which rules his MC. It was a good news day!
