(religion, spiritualism, and occult)

Hebe, asteroid 6 (the 6th asteroid to be discovered, on July 1, 1847, by the German amateur astronomer Karl Ludwig Hencke), is approximately 204 kilometers in diameter and has an orbital period of 3.8 years. Hebe was named after the Greek goddess of youth who took ambrosia to the Olympian deities. According to Martha Lang-Wescott, Hebe “deals with codependency—the ways that one ‘enables’ the egocentricity and emotional immaturity of others.” Jacob Schwartz adds the further trait of “granting leeway.” This asteroid’s key word is “serving.”
