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.
