(religion, spiritualism, and occult)

Ganymed is asteroid 1,036 (the 1,036th asteroid to be discovered, on October 23, 1924). It is approximately 40 kilometers in diameter and has an orbital period of 4.3 years. It was named after the youth who was kidnapped to become the cupbearer of Zeus. Jacob Schwartz gives the astrological significance of this asteroid as “beautiful and attractive to both genders, the mortal becoming divine by surrendering to the divine.” According to J. Lee Lehman, “the asteroid Ganymed shows how we are able to submit ourselves to that which is beyond our personal power. In negative form, it is the way we evade even the awareness that there is anything beyond our own powers.”
