Ara

(religion, spiritualism, and occult)

Ara, asteroid 849 (the 849th asteroid to be discovered, on February 9, 1912), is approximately 152 kilometers in diameter and has an orbital period of 5.6 years. Ara was named after the American Relief Administration (ARA) and represents the giving of aid. In a natal chart, its sign and house position indicates where and how one is most likely to give aid or to be aided by others. When afflicted by inharmonious aspects, Ara may indicate lack of aid or giving aid for the purpose of self-aggrandizement or as a manipulation.
