Toro

(religion, spiritualism, and occult)

Toro, asteroid 1,685 (the 1,685th asteroid to be discovered, on July 17, 1948), was named after the Spanish word for bull. Its orbital period is somewhat more than 1.5 years, and its diameter is 7.5 kilometers. Toro is one of the more recent asteroids to be investigated by astrologers. Preliminary material on Toro can be found in Demetra George and Douglas Bloch’s Astrology for Yourself, and an ephemeris (table of celestial locations) for Toro can be found in the second edition of George and Bloch’s Asteroid Goddesses. Unlike the planets, which are associated with a wide range of phenomena, the smaller asteroids are said to represent a single principle. George and Bloch give Toro’s principle as “the power of boundless strength”; their tentative key phrase for Toro is “my capacity to use and control power.” Zipporah Dobyns hypothesizes that Toro may resonate with the meaning of Taurus, attracted to comfort, beauty, and sensuality, and characterized by a strong will and potential power struggles. Jacob Schwartz gives the astrological significance of this asteroid as “using and controlling power, machismo, using intimidation, competitiveness, and physical work.”
