Anahita

(religion, spiritualism, and occult)

Anahita, asteroid 270 (the 270th asteroid to be discovered, on October 8, 1887), is approximately 52 kilometers in diameter and has an orbital period of 3.3 years. It was named after a goddess of fertility and procreation in Persian mythology who was associated with Mithras. When prominent in a natal chart, Anahita can show an exceptionally productive or “fertile” individual. By sign and house location, it may show an area of great potential that need only be cultivated a little to produce results.
