Mathesis

Mathesis, asteroid 454 (the 454th asteroid to be discovered, on March 28, 1900), is approximately 88 kilometers in diameter and has an orbital period of 4.3 years. Its name represents the desire for learning and the power of knowledge. In a natal chart, Mathesis's location by sign and house indicates where and how the desire for learning is most likely to manifest. When afflicted by inharmonious aspects, Mathesis may show aversion to learning or attraction to unhelpful subjects of learning. If prominent in a chart (e.g., conjunct the Sun or the ascendant), it may indicate an exceptionally studious person, or an individual for whom learning is a major life theme.
