Moira(religion, spiritualism, and occult)
Moira, asteroid 638 (the 638th asteroid to be discovered, on May 5, 1907), is approximately 41 kilometers in diameter and has an orbital period of 4.5 years. Its name is derived from the Greek word for the Fates. In an astrological chart, Moira’s location by sign and house indicates an area of life that is governed by fate or karma. When afflicted by inharmonious aspects, Moira may show negative karma. When prominent in a chart, it shows an individual whose whole life is fated.
