The Planets and Asteroids - Celestial Bodies

In Astrology the "Bodies" are talking about certain themes - the "WHAT".... and the
Stars and Signs are talking about the HOW. To me, they're All "living Beings" just a bit like the mythologies of Egypt, Greece, Roman and so on... the expression of the themes can be either harmonious or "challenged" or anywhere in between.... It's important to understand that "polarities" or challenges aren't a "bad thing" in this meaning, they just show what reflects, needs to be integrated or be learned or what can be obstacles on the path of learning and growth... 

For example: Planet Mercury was also a Roman God and equivalent with the Greek God Hermes and the Egyptian God Thoth. Hermes in Greece and Mercury in the Roman empire were looked at, as the "God's messenger" - fast, logic and a little "tricky" as well. Thoth in Egypt was also the Scribe - so communication was a theme here as well.... 

The Centaurs

They are Beings half horse, half human - we could say, they embody both, the "instinctual", raw and direct energies as well as the "human energies" - they link the realms.... just like their actual orbits do - their orbits are situated between Jupiter and Neptune and they behalf partly like Asteroids, partly like comets.
Chiron and Chariklo on the other side, both also Centaurs, are born of "gods" (partly) and show us how this can be integrated - interestingly  Chiron and Chariklo both do have "rings"..
