Kassandra

(religion, spiritualism, and occult)

Kassandra (or Cassandra), asteroid 114 (the 114th asteroid to be discovered, on July 23, 1871), is approximately 132 kilometers in diameter and has an orbital period of 4.4 years. Kassandra was the most beautiful of the 12 daughters of Priam and Hecuba of Troy. She was granted the gift of prophecy by Apollo, but, because she refused to honor her promise to make love to the sun god, Apollo pronounced a curse that her prophecies would never be believed. According to Martha Lang-Wescott, Kassandra represents the giving (or receiving) of advice. This asteroid also represents the broadcasting of ideas, but there is usually an issue of whether or not one is believed. Kassandra’s key word is “hearing.” J. Lee Lehman’s interpretation of Kassandra is essentially the same as Lang-Wescott’s. Jacob Schwartz gives this asteroid’s astrological significance as “wasted speech, talking and having others not follow advice, difficulty accepting advice.”
