Paul and Prosper Henri named the 1621 Laurentia Asteroid for an amateur French chemist, Joseph Jean Pierre Laurent on 21 April 1876. Laurentia is also the botanical name of the Virginia blue creeper ; they are not related.
And finally there is the Laurentian Mountain Range in Canada; no relation there either. I have only been in summer; winter is bitter cold. I couldn’t find any image of him.
So that is what we know about him, but when this asteroid is one degree away from one of the 12 points of a chart, what does it say? Well from viewing several charts where Laurentia appears and then learning from the discovery of Laurentia about the asteroid, we have come to the decision that it means “setbacks through ill health.” It is a slow moving asteroid, so the key is whether you have a strong aspect to it or not.
- The first chart that shows this is the Marshall Pickney Wilder chart, where Asteroid 1621 Laurentia is conjunct Mars, highlighting his bad heart.
- We will highlight others, typically with the 1621 Tag, as we go along, though hopefully on this page also.
