The Astrology of the Goddess Epona, The Divine Mare, Asteroid #3838
The Goddess Epona originated in ancient Gaul and her worship extended throughout Europe and the British Isles, unchanged even by the Romans. In the past few years I researched asteroid #3838, named Epona. I was studying equine guided learning at the same time. This asteroid was discovered and consequently named by French astronomer Allain Maury in 1986 at the Palo Alto Observatory, who chose the name as Epona is a Gaulish Goddess, and: a woman rode a horse to the grounds of the observatory that day! Friends, clients and total strangers contributed their personal information to a survey, consultations and conversations about Epona, #3838. I was honored to present my research at the Astrological Society of Connecticut and at the American Society of Dowsers National Convention 2015. With the info, I created an informative video of my presentation and a unique journal/study guide. (scroll down for video)

Use the Journal/Study Guide alone on your own, or as part of a consultation with me. I link this Goddess Asteroid not only to the concept of “fertility”, which is a common concept, but to the nature and behaviors of the lead mare in the equine natural herd. While there are several main roles within the herd, the lead mare is the “key keeper”. This translates to a person’s individualized style of leadership and their dynamic role in the “collective”.
I also came across the interesting process that often occurs with fast transiting asteroids wherein events are linked to the archetype of the name of the asteroid, in this case involving horsemanship, riding, training, skill development, events,encounters and accidents involving with horses.
