Amor

(religion, spiritualism, and occult)

Amor, asteroid 1,221 (the 1,221st asteroid to be discovered, on March 12, 1932) was named after the Roman god of love (corresponding to the Greek Eros). It has an orbital period of 2⅔ years and is only 1 kilometer in diameter. Amor is one of the more recent asteroids to be investigated by astrologers. Preliminary material on Amor can be found in Demetra George and Douglas Bloch’s Astrology for Yourself; an ephemeris (table of celestial locations) for Amor can be found in the back of the second edition of George and Bloch’s Asteroid Goddesses. Unlike the planets, which are associated with a wide range of phenomena, the smaller asteroids are said to represent a single principle. George and Bloch give Amor’s principle as platonic “love and compassion.” J. Lee Lehman associates Amor with intimacy and with nonsexual love, as well as with the loneliness and anger of being rejected. Jacob Schwartz connects the name with words like amorphous and amortization, and, similar to George and Bloch, says that this body is “astrologically interpreted as the capacity of unconditional, spiritual or platonic love and compassion.”
