THE MEANING OF ASTEROID (4950) HOUSE IN YOUR HOROSCOPE by Hilary Bond PhD
Copyright to Hilary Bond PhD All rights reserved.
I have been searching for details about minor planet House (4950) for ages. I finally found today (12th of July, 2021 at 6:40 pm) after much searching that minor planet House was discovered at Palomar on the 7th of December 1988 Elinor Francis Helin.
I admit to great excitement.
THE DISCOVERY CHART OF ASTEROID HOUSE
I rectified this chart for 2 am.
PLANETS & ASTEROIDS IN THE “HOUSE” DISCOVERY CHART
While ususually I would look at the planets in a disscovery chart I choose to analyse the aspects to Asteroid House itself and as a Child grows up in a house I find it significant that Asteroid Child is 6 degrees Libra , in a square to asteroid House, therefore I pay particular attention to these two asteroids.
I then will analyse the planets when I complete looking at all the asteoids arouund 4-6 degrees that aspect House and Child.
Asteroid House (5 Cancer) and is conjunct Chiron (5 Cancer), who is our knowledge bearer and inner healer who learns through suffering .
Asteroid Child (6 Libra) is our inner child. When it touches a personal part of another person’s chart, one may feel as if she/he can act like a child again. It reveals where you relate most strongly to the experiences of being a child, both the traumas and the joys. This activation in your Human Design is a place where you can explore reuniting with your inner child in a way that brings her magic into the present.
Asteroid Circe (6 Aquarius) . She is a helpful influence, offering wise advice and specialized information that can help others to be empowered to overcome their problems.
Asteroid Elpis (6 Sagittarius) which is conjunct Asteroid Phographica and quincunx House , symbolizes hope.
Asteroid Photographica (5 Sagittarius) which quincunxes House, (takes photos of significant memories which are connected to our limbic system. They are good or bad.
Asteroid Urania (5 Capricorn), which opposes House, symbolizes astrology, astronomy and Universal Love and the Holy Spirit (the violet flame).
A female centaur Hylonome (6 Virgo) which trines Asteroid House embodies grief, pain, suicide, poor boundaries in love, inability to separate one’s self from one’s partner.
Asteroid Sphinx 6 Gemini which quincunxes Asteroid House is any person or thing which defies understanding, particularly of its motivations, aims or goals.
& Asteroid Altjira 6 Taurus (sextile Asteroid House) are of great importance in this chart because they all aspect ASTEROID HOUSE. Altjira is a major Australian Aboriginal Spirit Creation Ancestor who bought the world into being by singing. A belief in the divine for those connected with the Indigenous world and mythology.
Child is one of the 12 Jungian archetypes and is known as the Innocent.
Asteroid Child is in the sign of Libra which is ruled by Venus.
Venus is in intense, regenerative Scorpio conjunct Moon conjunct Hygeia and conjunct Pluto. This is a feel-good transformative placement.
Child is part of a yod with Photographica and Altjira.
Child is the apex of a cardinal T -square with the House, Chiron, Hebe, Aphidas stellium.
Child is part of an air Grand Trine with Circe and Sphinx.
Asteroid house is the apex of a yod with Elpis-Photographica and Circe.
THE HOUSE-CHIRON-APHIDAS- HEBE STELLIUM
The first configuration I wish to examine and analyze if a stellium between House 5 -6 degrees Cancer, Chiron = 5 degrees, Hebe = 5 degrees and Aphidas = 6 degrees.
Asteroid House of course is the whole of ourself from the subconscious in the basement to the superego in the attic. That would include our shadow, our persona, our anima or animus. The self is not only the center, but the whole circumference, which embraces both the conscious and the unconscious. It is the center of this totality, just as the ego is the center of our consciousness. The shadow is a moral problem that challenges the whole ego personality. No one can be aware of their shadow without a great struggle where we challenge our ethics, honesty and honour.
Asteroid Aphidas While the Lapiths fought the Centaurs Aphidas was in a drunken sleep, so while he is inoffensive. kind, compassionate and empathetic he is unaware and inattentive and drunk which is the opposite of House’s need to be conscious.
Asteroid Hebe was her mother Juno’s (Hera’s) cupbearer. Thus, astrologically Hebe represents service, especially household or domestic service, but also related to food service, such as waiters and waitresses. Hebe can also indicate sexual attraction for persons under legal age, but sexually mature. In her capacity as servant, she can also indicate issues with enabling which is where one is reminded of the low consciousness of the centaurs, even though her parents are gods not barbarians. She is in a liminal zone here, but her father was sexually licentious.
Chiron who was also inadvertently at the fight between the Lapiths and Centaurs is pure and noble, but he is fatally wounded at that event by one of his ex-pupil Hercules’ arrows.
Asteroid House seems to be the environment or place where all this tragedy occurs, but house seems to stay aloof. If we look at Asteroid House’s attic perhaps, we see the immorality of the Centaurs who are not related to Chiron as a shadow lurking down there, but regardless of his wound Chiron sits up in the attic as the superego. The superego is the ethical component of the personality and provides the moral standards by which the ego operates. The superego’s criticisms, prohibitions, and inhibitions form a person’s conscience, and its positive aspirations and ideals represent one’s idealized self-image, or “ego ideal.” Chiron’s cave is his home/house and the cave is thought to be closely related to the symbolic heart and is often a place where the self and ego unite. he part of the psyche which organizes and directs all other elements of our psyche (or psychological being). The Self is the totality of the psyche. This means that its viewpoint contains objectivity, acceptance, reconciliation, balance of the psyche. The center of the psyche (comparable to the nucleus of an atom) to which the other parts are connected and subordinate. The Self is a transcendent, unchanging part of ourselves and can be the “God-image” within the psyche. Jung identified Jesus Christ, the central figure of the Christian faith, as the exemplification of the archetype of the Self.
THE HOUSE YOD,
WITH HOUSE in Cancer (conjunct Chiron) AS APEX QUINCUNXING ELPIS (CONJUNCT PHOTOGRAPHICA in Sagittarius ) & CIRCE in Aquarius
As we can see House as a possible holistic psyche full of well being ( but because of Chiron conjuncting it :brilliant , pure, compassionate but wounded in the area of emotions (both are in Cancer) and with a quincunx to Elpis (which means hope or hopeful or when afflicted, shows disappointment or lack of hope) we wonder whether House is depressed because of memories stored in the limbic system (Elpis conjunct Phographica) of times when life was full of adventures or travels. If we see House as quincunxing Circe, House may feel Circe seduced or bewitched him/her possibly in a Neptunian affair. But if we look at Elpis-Photographica sextiling Circe, the Circe who House possibly has a love affair with was helpful, wise and gave specialized information in technology (Aquarius) that could help Elpis-Photographica for their travel articles.
THE HOUSE conjunct Chiron-CHILD-URANIA T-SQUARE
House conjunct Chiron is opposite Urania in Capricorn and they are both square Child. Clearly it is a challenge for Libran Child who loves lollies, chocolates, hates making decisions and loves butterflies, flowers and beauty to understand the complexities of Urania and House. The stars (Urania) are pretty says Child and I would like my house to have a white picket fence and flowers says the innocent inner child. But what if child is wounded because Child has Asteroid Atropos conjunct it.
Dark Star astrology says Urania was the goddess of astronomy which was the same then as astrology. She is also associated with Universal Love and the Holy Spirit. Joanne Madeline Moore says through the celebration of imagination and celestial knowledge, Urania can help lift our minds and spirits to heavenly heights. She is the muse of astrophiles, space cadets and cosmic connoisseurs, and is prominent in the horoscopes of astrologers and people who have a keen curiosity about the vast and mysterious cosmos.
TWO EXEMPLAR HOROSCOPES FEATURING ASTEROID ‘‘HOUSE’’
- Astrologer JEFFREY WOLF GREEN (founder of Evolutionary astrology).
J.W.G. had his 22 degrees Aquarius conjunct his Moon in Aquarius.
He also had his Uranus in Gemini trining his asteroid House and his Mercury 21 degrees of Scorpio. His house is in his 2nd house (no pun intended.) His Asteroid House, and his Moon were both ruled by Uranus and Uranus trines his Asteroid House. Uranus is the symbol of the Higher Mind but Uranus is also one of the relationship oriented planets in the horoscope along with Mercury (intellect, cognitive processes), and here Uranus is the higher “ octave ” of Mercury. It is also the rebel and the genius in terms of the uniformity of mass consciousness. Donna Cunningham sees Uranians as Uranian people as achingly lonely people, who have little choice but to strike out on their own, they are impelled to action by restlessness, a creative itch, and a discomfort with the status quo. I should know because I am one of them. A Uranian conflict with the bell-curve norms of society. The more Uranians express their individuality, the more starkly they stand out against the conforming masses, and the more vulnerable they become to society’s fear of people who are different. JWG’s Moon conjunct House suggests a psyche that is whole and unified and has refined his emotions into universal forces such as pure love. In the 2nd house JWG’s values are driven to be holistic and at one with the highest dimensions. JWG’s Mercury in deep Scorpio squares House and this suggests his ability to scan the depths of the link between Man and God.
- Psychiatrist CARL GUSTAVE JUNG also has a strong House-Uranus aspect. His House in Leo is ruled by his Sun in Leo which conjuncts his descendant in Leo which explains his fascination with the psyche and people’s psyche’s. His Sun also squares his Neptune which conjuncts his IC. Ideally, the IC is our home, our house or our roots. Jung’s Moon in solid, grounded Taurus squares his asteroid House. The placement of asteroid House in these two horoscopes of these two men is amazing similar.

THE SUN IN THIS HOROSCOPE
The Sun represents our Ego. It is who we are, and it is the core ingredient that goes into making up our personality and influences the flavor of all of the other planets in our charts. It is the essential foundation of a person.
Our Sun helps to create a healthy ego which means confidence and self-importance. It is the focusing of will power, and capacity into positive action. It is also the creation of coherent self-image. The source of life, the Sun is also the source of our happiness and wellbeing.
This Sagittarius Sun may need freedom and adventure, so asteroid Child in this horoscope is vital.
This sun is one of the 12 Jungian archetypes and is known as the Explorer.
https://mycuriousmoon.com/jungian-archetypes-zodiac-signs/ states that this archetype tells us: “Don’t fence me in.” They desire: “the freedom to find out who you are through exploring the world.” Their goal is “to experience a better, more authentic, more fulfilling life”. They fear: “getting trapped, conformity, and inner emptiness.” Their strategy: journey, seeking out and experiencing new things, escape from boredom” Their weakness maybe endless searching, lack of peace & aimless wandering & becoming a misfit/drifter. Their talent is “autonomy, ambition, being true to one’s soul.”
Their house maybe a a gypsey van, a caravan towed behind a car, a tent, swag or even a house to renovate or be the manager or carer for. They may have a dog or may travel by horse or camel. They may write travel articles.
THIS SAGITTARIAN SUN IN THE ASTEROID DISCOVERY CHART
The Sun sextile Osiris 14 Libra to gain ego regeneration and squares asteroid Hecate 13 Pisces in a challenge to always be wise at the crossroads of life.
This Sun is a clever, communicative Sun, who needs, exercise and the outdoors, as it is conjunct Mercury at 18 Sagittarius.
The Sun in this House discovery chart is ruled by Jupiter in Taurus which stabilizes and grounds this sun and prevents it being a puer eternus. Jupiter quincunxes Uranus in Capricorn in this chart.
In this archetypal House they may live in the office together adding up their finances together or on their farm growing their next lucrative crop. Thank goodness they both are in earth signs. They add to the predominant groundedness and earthiness of this chart.
THE HOUSE DISCOVERY CHART SUN also exactly conjuncts Cassandra. This is a very feeling chart so this is not surprising. Cassandra embodies the archetype of medial knowledge. Unlike the ancient world there are few shrines or sacred places to honor her way of knowing. Cassandra signifies the need to be aware of our medial skills and intuitive knowledge and seek training to help strengthen the ability to use this skill and not be overwhelmed by it. When Cassandra appears in a significant placing in our horoscope, she inspires the individual to find a voice for the medium through understanding the symbols, images, signs and omens of unconscious language. She embodies the ancient ways of knowing in a culture that no longer values prophecy and divination. Her knowledge is not objective but oracular. To embrace Cassandra we must abandon logic, separateness and rationality and enter into the irrational world where meaning is revealed through feeling and connectedness. However, Cassandra reminds us that in a scientific and ordered society our knowing may be rejected. Cassandra inspires us to have strong principles, a strong and healthy individuality about our beliefs.
Oracular knowing springs out of the collective through an unconscious and unbound participation with everything in the environment. When the veil between the worlds is lifted, we enter into other dimensions, into the house of the spirits of the world beyond us and may be called to act as their surrogate for their messages. THE ARCHETYPE OF ASTEROID HOUSE
ASTEROID HOUSE IS IN CANCER IN THE DISCOVERY CHART embodies the Caregiver or Mother archetype likes to help others and protect and care for everyone. They are clever, generous, imaginative, sympathetic, and compassionate. They hate people not thanking them. hey can easily become a martyr or a victim. Like the Cancer South Node, they adore their home and children and family and her home, her children and her family come first in her life. But she can be moody and overly emotional and unable to let go.
The Sun in this Asteroid House discovery chart is ruled by Jupiter in Taurus which stabilizes and grounds this sun and prevents it being a puer eternus. Jupiter quincunxes Uranus in Capricorn in this chart. In this archetypal House they may live in the office together adding up their finances together or on their farm growing their next lucrative crop. Thank goodness they both are in earth signs. They add to the predominant groundedness and earthiness of this chart.
THE NAME of ASTEROID HOUSE
Elinor named it in honor of R. C. House, western novelist and journalist who has served, for the last 23 years, as editor of the Jet Propulsion Laboratory’s internal publication ‘Universe’. He has been responsible for this highly regarded chronicle of life at “the Lab” until his recent retirement. He captured for his readers the true spirit of the world’s leading space exploration center. His natural warmth endeared him to all he had contact.
So, we know this asteroid lends us natural warmth, possible professional writing abilities and an interest in astronomy.
THE SYMBOLIC MEANING OF MINOR PLANET HOUSE IN DREAMS.
Caroline Myss in her book Sacred Contracts: Opening your divine potential states, “In symbolic archetypal terms a house represents the whole of the self from the subconscious in the basement to the superego in the attic.”
In the Bible, “A wise man who built his house on the rock” is not ruined by rain, and strong winds, because it had its foundation on the rock, whereas “a foolish man who built his house on sand” loses his house and possessions when storms come into his life.
The condition of the house reflecting your mental state as you experience something. Rich houses symbolize your perspective on issues where you are powerful and resourceful. Poor houses represent your perspective on issues where you are powerless or emotionally weakened. If you discover a new room in your dream house associated with positive feelings: new area of life will open or desires to open if you’ll cooperate.
To dream of a house being on fire represents feelings of powerlessness to stop some area of your life from being lost for good. It may also reflect angry destructive intentions or intentional harm that can’t be stopped. Feeling stupid that you can’t do anything about stopping damage to some area of your life. A situation may feel permanently out of your control in a negative way.
To dream of buying a house represents your commitment to integrating something into your life. To dream of cleaning your house represents self-improvement. You may be fine-tuning an idea you have or trying to perfect something. Unnecessary beliefs or habits are being removed or changed.
To dream of a new house represents a new perspective or mindset on a situation. A new way of thinking about something. To dream of an old house represents a perspective or mindset that is experienced, tried, and trusted.
In a dream, water most often symbolizes emotions, so a dream about a flood or tidal wave can indicate being surprised and overwhelmed by feelings. If the water engulfs your house, it can indicate immense, powerful, and unruly emotions that threaten to swallow and suffocate everything in their path. However, flooding can sometimes be a positive dream symbol if the dreamer feels invigorated, cleansed, or released by the water.
If we remember that the house represents ourself, this dream might be interpreted as a straightforward indication that we feel as though someone or something were trying to break in, steal, burgle, vandalize, or lay claim to ourselves without our invitation. A forced entry is, by definition, destructive. Perhaps your body, mind, life, time, consciousness, or psyche has been encroached on by someone or something without your permission, and your boundaries have been breached against your will.
Dreaming of a bathroom often relates to how well we are cleansing ourselves and letting go of what no longer serves us. The bathroom is often a place where we “let go” and allow ourselves to be our most authentic or vulnerable selves.
Bedrooms in our dreams can help us understand our most intimate and private aspects of self. The bedroom may reflect those intimate thoughts, feelings, desires, and aspects of who we are that we don’t share.
Although still personal in nature, the living room is the place where we interact with others and may represent the more public, shared, and collaborative parts of our lives. The living room could represent the part of ourselves we invite others to experience or allow others to see.
In many ways, the kitchen is the heart of the house. It is the place we prepare meals, store food, clean, and informally gather with friends and family. Dreams of the kitchen often reflect our heart and soul, how we are fed and what we are preparing spiritually, and what is nourishing our mind, body, and soul.
The dining room can relate to both the kitchen and the living room. It is a social area of the house. It is also a room we associate with food and nourishment. This area of the house in a dream is often associated with what we are nourishing our mind, heart, and spirit.
Houses can also tell us other things about your personality.
If you are a minimalist and decorate your house accoringly you only have essential and do not have flamboyant colours or extravagent displays of wealuth. You tell the world psychologically that you are self-confident, organized, and maybe, Virgoish a little introverted.
Like the Virgoish minimalist if you copy the Scandinavian type of interior decor you are probably appreciative, cheerful, friendly, open-minded, and generous. This style is known as hygge, which gives a feeling of coziness and contentment that enriches one’s wellbeing. This Hygge type house would have to be a Hygeia persona or a Vesta.
In contrast the minimalist, baroque styles are rich, 17th century Italian, splendid and elegant. Who else but a dominant Leo/5th house or solar person would be this extroverted, dramatic, energetic, and elegant. This style is
A classic interior design in your house in white and off white, with some elegant plants exhilaerates in all the typical “design rules” and has the basic foundation of traditional design at their core. This person tends to be a traditionalist, genuine, high-minded, intelligent. This house type person could only be a Capricornian-tenth house or Juno person.
THE ASTEROID HOUSE IN THE SIGNS
ASTEROID HOUSE IN ARIES. How big is your mask or persona? Do you need to be more truthful to others about who you really are? Or is your persona totally you? I have seen people with asteroid house here and they are definitely not faking. They are, “I am what you see. I am what you get.”
Asteroid HOUSE IN GEMINI – the anima; do we need to look at the feminine side of our male psyche.
ASTEROID HOUSE IN CANCER which suggests your subconscious needs work and we may need to look at how much our roots are influencing our shadow.
ASTEROID HOUSE IN LEO. Does your inner child need work? Are you conscious or unconscious of your inner child?
Asteroid HOUSE IN VIRGO
ASTEROID HOUSE IN LIBRA
Asteroid HOUSE IN SCORPIO. Do your ancestors rule your life?
Asteroid HOUSE IN SGITTARIUS. Does your religion or your beliefs rule your house?
ASTEROID HOUSE IN CAPRICORN- Your house will be conservative. Basically, you are a person who does live in your super-ego (the attic of your house.) A cluttered attic may mean you are feeling overwhelmed and with thoughts or ideas. Clutter may indicate that we are not processing or letting go of things.
ASTEROID HOUSEE IN AQUARIIUS
ASTEROID HOUSE IN PISCES. You need to do shadow work.
I do hope this research lays some light on the symbology of asteroid House and its connection with the Mother Archetype, your inner child and Jungian parts of your Self.
