What is Pallas Athena

In 1802, the Asteroid Pallas Athena was discovered by Henrich Wilhelm Olbers, an eminent German physician and astronomer. Pallas Athena was the second asteroid discovered (after Ceres, the mother) and her name was taken from the Greek goddess Pallas Athena who represents wisdom, courage, warfare, strategy, and skill.

The Warrior Queen

The mythological character, Pallas Athena, was said to be the goddess of courage and warfare. The asteroid, Pallas Athena, is responsible for balancing Jupiter, Saturn, and Mars, keeping them in harmony with one another. Pallas Athena sees them as equals and will assess any altercation before passing judgement and/or taking any action. She uses her creative streak and intelligence to avoid taking direct action if possible, however, when she does act, she does so decisively; this sort of courage can be seen in both Mars and Jupiter.

Creative Intelligence

Pallas Athena represents creative intelligence as she’s in a stellium (cluster of three) with Ceres, Uranus, and the South Node, all of which all aligned in the constellation Crater. Asteroid Pallas is in the constellation of intellect and made creative/intuitive by Uranus.

Strategic Thinking

Pallas Athena plays an important role in political astrology and her prominence, strong will and determination make her useful when it comes to keeping the peace. In conjunction with the sun, Pallas Athena has a fighting spirit and loves to learn all she can. The North Node is on the star Markab which gives her intellectual alertness, mental powers, and the ability to further propaganda.

Pattern Recognition

Pallas Athena is said to be the goddess of pattern recognition which is said to be the key component in the study of astrology.

Father-Daughter Relationship

In Greek mythology, it was said that Pallas Athena didn’t have a mother because she was born from the head of her father, Zeus (Jupiter). The Asteroid, Pallas Athena, also has very close ties with her father and is seen as being in the second stage of life, no longer a little girl who’s dependent on her father. In the Pallas astrology chart, Venus (the girl) is seen as being closely tied to The Sun (her father). The Sun, opposite Uranus, makes her strongly independent which has had an effect on her desire for harmony and stability.
