Nymphe, asteroid 875 (the 875th asteroid to be discovered, on May 19, 1917), is approximately 13 kilometers in diameter and has an orbital period of 4.1 years. It is named after the mythological spirits of nature, the nymphs. Nymphe represents an exuberance for the natural world. If prominent in a natal chart (e.g., conjunct the Sun or the ascendant), it may show a person somehow deeply involved with nature.
