This Asteroid is what is says. It is our inner child. This Asteroid is closest to the Moon, in terms of it’s nature. If one does not have good Moon aspects in synastry, one could check the Child Asteroid. I had it conjunct someone’s Moon. I could feel my inner child relax in this person’s presence. It was like he had known me, forever. It is a powerful Asteroid in synastry. It is a powerful Asteroid in the natal. Let’s talk about it for a bit.
We all have an inner child. No matter how hard bitten is a man, he has an inner child. It could be layered over with pain. However, there is something that can touch his inner child. People who have shut down their inner child, from abuse, open it to animals or children. In the presence of these defenseless creatures, a stony heart can melt. That stony heart is the inner child.
The Child Asteroid tells us the nature of our childhood. Wouldn’t we all want it trine the Sun? I have seen that in the chart of someone with a good childhood. On the other hand, one can extrapolate to a hard childhood. In the latter, the Child Asteroid will show the exact nature of the childhood.
In my doing of the charts, I have found what I think is the single hardest placement. That would be Moon conjunct Dejanira. This seems to result in Borderline Personality Disorder. If not this, then a severe fracturing of the personality. It seems to show sexual abuse. The Child Asteroid conjunct Dejanira is a lesser form of this. There is abuse. It may be sexual. It results in some fracturing of the ego, but not to the extent of Deja conj the Moon.
I would love you to check out your Child Asteroid and tell me what you find. We can learn together, as always! The Child Asteroid is 4580.
