(religion, spiritualism, and occult)

Erato, asteroid 62 (the 62nd asteroid to be discovered, on September 14, 1860), is approximately 64 kilometers in diameter and has an orbital period of 5.5 years. Erato was named after the Greek muse of love poetry. J. Lee Lehman associates this asteroid with the inspiration of love, as distinct from its consummation. Jacob Schwartz gives the astrological significance of Erato as “emotional inspiration, lyric and love poetry.”
