Poesia, asteroid 946 (the 946th asteroid to be discovered, on February 11, 1921), is approximately 40 kilometers in diameter and has an orbital period of 5.5 years. Its name is a personification of the word poetry. In a natal chart, Poesia’s location by sign and house indicates one’s poetic sensitivity, or where and how one is most likely to experience poetry. If prominent in a chart (e.g., conjunct the Sun or the ascendant), it may show a poetically talented individual.
