Introduction to NameAsteroids
Tiny little space rocks floating all over the place in the Asteroid belt between Mars and Jupiter. Randomly named by the person who discovered them, or named after people, places, plants, concepts or deities, and mythical lovers. These names are then judged & approved by the IAU. Although the asteroids are young, their significance is reflected within our own birthchart, event chart, and other types of charts. N.A’s provide additional information to what’s found in the natal chart and portray the story attached to a person within our life with great detail to how we see and experience someone individually. You can search the names of loved ones, family, friends, enemies,… in the Asteroid databank on astro.com
When we are born, the names of our loved ones are already within us. It’s a matter of time to come across these people and activate their name in our chart. This is where the journey begins. Therefore it’s utterly pointless to be looking at names of people you haven’t met yet.
The house placement and the aspects that are made to the name can clear up some things around that person. Conjunction are the strongest. The closer the ‘better’. When a name asteroid touches one of your planets, points or asteroids, the energy is activated. Aspects other than conjunctions also activate, but a weak influence since asteroids are still very young.
As far as I know, I’m the only Astrologer devoting time and research to the NameAsteroids. Up until now, it has been used for fun and superficial purposes, however, I have a completely different opinion and experience with these Asteroids. They provide a revolutionary way of chart analysis and even relationship interpretation from a personal point of view. Watch the video above for more information..
On my YouTube channel, you’ll find some videos where I use and interpret the NameAsteroids.
The basics of the NameAsteroids
|House||Area of influence & impact, themes, awareness/challenge, lessons, similarity, inspiration, influence, “where” “what”|
Often related to the main theme of the connection
|Sign||Traits, personality, character, behavior, stereotype, expression, “how” “attitude” – The behavioral issue|
Often related to how the native approaches the N.A
|Aspect||Feelings, attitude, highlights due to the person, involvement, affect, effect, struggles, ease, dynamic|
Often related to that what the N.A brings to you, triggers
|Planet||Archetypes, influential energy, type of events|
|Degree||Additional information, traits, events, attitude|
Often related to the traits and personality of the N.A, that what they are or what they do
• Conjunction & opposition : Significant & important contact, nature of planet becomes a theme
• Hard aspects : Important contact, challenges to evolution & awareness
• Harmonic aspects : Create ease and natural flow, usually don’t bring major events
• Use tight orbs : 0-4 degrees
For additional information, check the ruler of the name asteroids and its location in the natal chart.
NameAsteroids are useful in Natal interpretation and Solar Return charts, as well as Composite.
If you can’t find the name you’re looking for :
• Try a different spelling
• Try a name that sounds similar
• Try the name in a foreign language
• More tips will be provided in my book..
Never interpret NameAsteroids by itself. Always consider the Natal promise first before judging or making any assumptions. The NameAsteroids provide an additional layer and dimension of detail and show how a person influences your evolution and awareness (of self).

Name asteroids in the house
The house placement shows the area of life where an N.A impacts you the most, for either good or bad. It shows the themes and concerns that are pushed to the forefront through this connection. The most basic meaning of the house can appear throughout various stages of the contact. A Name highlights certain issues and enables us to see how we deal with the concepts and themes of that house : they can heal or torment us within this area. The house is a force and divine reason behind the relationship.
Creates a feeling of will and self-direction, seeing the person as a competition or as a part of you. A contact that motivates and encourages the need to dissect and introspect oneself. The person is somehow always close to you, part of you. It also means that your physical body is involved either by sexual interaction, a fight,.. Your freedom of movement is affected either positively or negatively. This person may help you in self-discovery or become a huge part in defining who you are. They may remind you of yourself and inspire you to be more expressive and individual. Great personal similarities. These are the contacts that help self-awareness and self-respect.

Hard to pinpoint what you feel but it could indicate either a secret enemy, someone that you have some sort of spiritual battle with, you may feel like you don’t connect at all with them. On a more positive note, you understand one another intuitively, there is a great sense of compassion. To be given the time to recover, or to simply be understood in your private and personal suffering. Someone we feel drawn towards on a spiritual level.

These are the contacts that help you heal.
In my book, i’ll give an in depth description of the meaning in houses and signs. Stay tuned.
Ways to Interpret the NameAsteroids
You can check NameAsteroids only after meeting someone as you don’t know their name prior.
Consider both Placidus and Whole sign house system and see what makes most sense to you, however both will serve a part of the whole as Placidus gives a more Psychological perspective whereas Whole sign is the more traditional approach.
Significant NameAsteroids :
• Conjunct/opposite to an angle with an orb of 0-3
• Tight aspect with Sun or Moon with an orb of 0-3
• Conjunctions or Oppositions are most powerful aspect
• Opposition to Venus/7th ruler could indicate an interruption of marriage
NameAsteroids by Sign :
The sign reflects the personality traits, expressions and attitude of the N.A from your point of view. It’s how an N.A impacts and confronts you with that what needs to be balanced. The Sign indicates how we perceive the other, the energy brought to the forefront within us. Do we approach that person from the positive or negative side of that sign? The sign represents the flavor of a person’s expressions in our life and can be interpreted literally. The typical traits of that sign is what we get to see from them most profoundly, from the perception of the native. Sometimes it’s how we prefer to see another. Similar as the houses, the placement can teach us how much we understand the sign’s energy, or how much we relate to it. One with a name in Scorpio may struggle with obsessive thoughts or deep jealousy towards the N.A, but this is the low vibrational manifestation of the sign ; one needs to learn to let go in order to cooperate and evolve. The sign can display stereotypical expressions and issues.
NameAsteroids by degree :
This idea stems from the Degree Theory and i think i’m probably the first to consider these two together as i’ve noticed it to be very accurate in my own findings.
Go to the Degree Theory page to see what each degree signifies. An example from my own life is that i have the Name Asteroid of a very significant foreign person on 9 degrees, this degree is linked to the sign Sagittarius which means ‘foreign’. Another example is a woman having the Name Asteroid of her spouse on 1 degree, which is an Aries degree but in reality her spouse is Aries by sun sign.
Yet another example is that of a man who has the Name Asteroid of his girlfriend on 13 degrees, which is an Aries degree and his girlfriend is Aries rising – The coincidence.
Note : Not always will these degrees give away the Sun, Moon or Rising sign of the person, but it just validates and adds more flavor. It could possibly help in your own interpretations as there is always the possibility of knowing more than 1 person with the same name.
• I have seen The name of a woman her husband exact conjunct to the ruler of her 7th house. As well as a name asteroid making a trine to Juno and Vertex. Those are strong indicators of marriage, or seeing this person with this name as perfect marriage material.
• I have seen the Name Asteroids of the parents of a child being in the same sign of Sagittarius, whilst the mother’s name is conjunct the MC, it shows the parents to be the teachers of the child.
• I have seen a man his girlfriend’s name making a positive aspect to Saturn while in Synastry she is the Saturn on his DSC. Her name is also sextile to Juno showing him to see her as a perfect spouse, which was what he said in real life.
• I have seen the name Asteroid of a girlfriend exact conjunct to Asteroid Union in the chart of a man.
• I have seen the Name Asteroid of a woman exact conjunct Eros in 8th house of a mans chart, whilst the people involved have had an unusual sexual connection, kinky friends.
• I have seen the Name Asteroid of a man exact conjunct the MC of a woman he abused, while the Name Asteroid opposed Mars and exact trine to Vertex.
• I have seen the Name Asteroid of the partner exact conjunct to the ascendant ruler in a woman’s chart.
• There is often an aspect to Juno or Union and a Name Asteroid of someone you’ve been in a relationship with.
• A woman her name semi-sextile to Neptune in a male chart, while his name is semi-sextile to Juno in her chart. these two people were soullovers, past life husband and wife. The semi-sextile is the ‘unseen’ or a connection that’s unphysical.
