Philagoria

Philagoria

(religion, spiritualism, and occult)

Philagoria, asteroid 274 (the 274th asteroid to be discovered, on April 3, 1888), is approximately 36 kilometers in diameter and has an orbital period of 5.3 years. Its name means fond of assembly in Greek. When prominent in an astrological chart, it may indicate, as the name suggests, an individual who is fond of gatherings of all sorts. The sign and house position offer greater specificity as to where and how the native enjoys assemblies.
