Pallas is the second in line discovered asteroid, following Ceres, and one of the largest ones in our Solar system. It is the third in mass existing asteroid. This asteroid was discovered by the astronomer Heinrich Wilhelm Matthäus Olbers in 1802. First it was considered a planet like all the other asteroids. Its surface is mostly silicates.
The name Pallas derives from the ancient Greek goddess Athena, the goddess of wisdom, whose alternate name was Pallas Athena.
According to some mythological stories, she was born from the head of the god Zeus.
According to some other myths, the goddess Athena killed her friend Pallas, and afterwards took her name grieving for her lost friend.
Asteroids, although not commonly used in the interpretation of the natal birth chart, can have a very important impact on our personalities and our overall life circumstances. In general, they represent some female archetypes and the feminine power a person possesses.
In astrology, the asteroid Pallas often represents our creative intellect and our efforts. It indicates our intelligence, wisdom, and healing powers.
Pallas indicates how we control and manage our animalistic and aggressive tendencies using our intelligence and wisdom. Pallas indicates our desire to fight for what we believe is right and is focused on the greater good rather than on her.
She symbolizes our relationships with our father (especially for women, father – daughter relationships) as well as the men in our lives.
Pallas might influence some bias beliefs towards men. She either can make us instinctively trust them or, contrary, doubt their motives. Pallas is often attributed some super-powers.
Like the goddess she got her name from, she is considered the warrior queen. She needs to discover the truth before she can make a decision and take action. Pallas is defensive and she will use her wit to avoid violence if possible.
Pallas indicates a person’s intuitive abilities, intelligence, and perception. This asteroid indicates our talent for strategic planning and accomplishing our goals. She is prominent in the natal charts of people who have some creative profession and visual arts, such as photography, movies, design, painting, pottery, etc.
The asteroid Pallas also rules healing abilities and mental techniques of self-healing, such as visualization, meditation, mind control, affirmation, and hypnosis. If prominently positioned, it might indicate the person’s healing abilities or receptivity to such ways of healing.
In some cases, prominently positioned Pallas in a person’s natal chart can give a great talent for diplomacy and politics.
If Pallas has bad aspects, it might indicate a lack of diplomatic skills, weak character, aggressiveness, and similar traits.
In some cases, Pallas’s influence might cause a woman to be very competitive and aggressive, thus limiting her feminine qualities, and cause a man to become overly passive and dependent, acquiring too much feminine qualities.
In the natal chart of a person, Pallas describes the manners we confront with our issues regarding our creativity, skills, politics, healing, relationships, as well as fear of success.
