Nerthus(religion, spiritualism, and occult)
Nerthus, asteroid 601 (the 601st asteroid to be discovered, on June 2, 1906), is approximately 43 kilometers in diameter and has an orbital period of 5.5 years. It is named after a Scandinavian goddess of fertility. When prominent in a natal chart, Nerthus may show an exceptionally productive, “fertile” individual. By sign and house, it may show an area of great potential that need only be “cultivated” a little to produce results.
