Asteroid Pelion, Mount Pelion

Pelion 49036

Pelion is the name of the highest mountain in the Thessaly region of Greece, noted mythically as the home of Chiron the centaur, tutor to many classical Greek heroes, such as Heracles, Achilles, Jason and Theseus.

Astrologically, it represents the “steep uphill climb”, insurmountable obstacles, a sharp learning curve, any project or endeavor which intimidates in scope or size. There is also a potential for enhanced, elevated perspective and the ability to see further ahead than others, in a metaphoric sense.
