There is an asteroid (Near-Earth asteroid 3753) which has a very complicated
path with respect to the Earth. It has been termed by astronomers to be a
"companion" of the Earth since it shares the Earth's orbit. I can't begin
to explain the complicated dance it does with the Earth, but there is an
excellent web page on the subject at http://www.asteroid.yorku.ca/companion.
I suggest downloading the MPEG movies, they are fascinating.
My question is this. Is the location of this asteroid used by astrologers?
If so, then what symbols are used? If not, why not? An asteroid with as
complicated a path as this one in the same orbit as the Earth (even crossing
under the South Pole) but never coming closer than 0.1AU has got to be
symbolic of something.
Assuming astrologers would want to use this asteroid in their horoscopes,
then what is the process to determine the asteroids symbolism and agree upon
it? The astronomers have (not very poetically) named it Near-Earth asteroid
3753. Not much help there.
