Lucina

(religion, spiritualism, and occult)

Lucina, asteroid 146 (the 146th asteroid to be discovered, on June 8, 1875), is approximately 140 kilometers in diameter and has an orbital period of 4.4 years. It was named after the Roman goddess of childbirth and the travails of women, who was the daughter of Jupiter and Juno. In addition to indicating something about one’s children, Lucina’s position by sign and house shows where one “gives birth” to various activities or ideas.
