Prometheus was a Titan who was charged with physically creating man. He molded man of clay and assumed his artwork would be around permanently. Wanting to see his creation last and prosper, Prometheus was punished for outwitting and stealing fire from Zeus, and giving that fire--life, culture, and science--to humanity. Zeus wanted to keep the fire all to himself, for Gods to remain the only ones who had access to the wisdom fire would bring. Prometheus paid the price--eternally banished by Zeus to the depths of Tartarus where he had his liver picked at daily by an eagle. It would regenerate each night so the torture could begin anew the next day. Nice, huh? He was finally rescued by Hercules.
Boldness in the face of injustice, an acute sense of
right and wrong, the ability to take risks...
This asteroid (Prometheus #1809) is about boldness in the face of injustice, an acute sense of right and wrong, the ability to take risks when it can further our work. Prometheus can show where we chart our own path, where we differ with the accepted norm or current authority. Strong will and Impulsive action. Having compassion in the face of tyranny is also an element of this fascinating asteroid.
Prometheus in aspect to the Sun can show one who is ready to go their own way, willing to differ with the powers that be so that full personal expression is allowed. I have seen Prometheus in conjunction with the sun in the charts of humanitarian workers. Hard aspects can point to reticence, inability to take action, or guilt when it comes to differing from what is expected.
Prometheus in aspect to the moon can show a one who will offer compassion and giving in the face of those who may not deserve it. The emotional liberator.

Prometheus in aspect to Pluto is about ignoring all opinions about ones own motives and doing it anyway. There can be consequences for being bold with Pluto in the mix.
