Lacrimosa(religion, spiritualism, and occult)
Lacrimosa, asteroid 208 (the 208th asteroid to be discovered, on October 21, 1879), is approximately 48 kilometers in diameter and has an orbital period of 4.9 years. Lacrimosa is Latin for “weeping.” The lacrimal glands are tear-secreting glands at the top of the eye. The location of this tiny planetoid by sign and house indicates a source of tears. Crying is not necessarily a negative experience; one can also have “tears of joy.” Lacrimosa generally shows where a person’s emotions are so deeply invested that the individual experiences extremes of happiness or sadness.
