Feronia, asteroid 72 (the 72nd asteroid to be discovered, on May 29, 1861), is approximately 96 kilometers in diameter and has an orbital period of 3.4 years. It was named after the Roman goddess of freed slaves (the naming came at the beginning of the American Civil War), who was also the goddess of groves, woods, and orchards. Her shrine on Mount Soracte in Etruria was the scene of an annual fire-walking ritual. In a natal chart, the asteroid’s location by sign and house may indicate where one feels free from social bonds or the bondage of the past. A native with a prominent natal Feronia also feels an attraction for sylvan (related to the woods) environments.
