Ate (āˈtē), in Greek mythology, personification of the rash temper that leads men to folly and misfortune. She was the daughter of Zeus, who, angered by her mischief, cast her from Olympus. In Greek tragedy she was an avenger of evil deeds and thus was similar to Nemesis and the Furies.

Ate (religion, spiritualism, and occult)
Ate, asteroid 111 (the 111th asteroid to be discovered, on August 14, 1870), is approximately 156 kilometers in diameter and has an orbital period of 4.2 years. It was named after the goddess of blind folly, rashness, infatuation, and mischief. According to Greek tragedians, Ate was behind the avenging curse that was the ultimate cause of the Trojan War. The natal position of Ate by sign and house may indicate where one is most prone to folly. When afflicted, Ate may show where one is likely to respond to real or imagined insults in an exaggerated fashion.
