One of the small planets found between Mars and jupiter. gales- a very strong wind. Methane-an inflamable noble gas found in marshy areas and in coal mines. planet- Any of the heavenly bodies that move in an orbit round the sun.
Minor heavenly bodies mostly between Mars and Jupiter, except for Chiron which is between Saturn and Uranus. Astrologers, when they use asteroids at all, usually focus on the minor planet Chiron (the wounded healer) and the four largest of the asteroids -- Ceres, Pallas Athene, Vesta, and Juno, generally associated with different facets of relationship and the feminine.
The effects of the Asteroids have been studied, much as the effects of the Planets, and they may well be the remains of an exploded planet. Ceres, Pallas, Juno, and Vesta were the first four asteroids discovered, but there are hundreds. This vastly complicates learning astrology, so we will simply introduce the concept here and there are many books available if you wish to study them in depth.
