It's interesting that controversial US Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (AOC) has an asteroid named after her. This naming took place back in 2007 long before her election to Congress, and was in honor of her winning 2nd place in an Intel science fair when she was a senior in high school. Asteroids are one of the few things that the International Astronomical Union (IAU) allows to be named after living people.

This naming means that AOC is in the unique position to be astrologically influenced by her own asteroid! Wink Asteroid "23238 Ocasio-Cortez" can be computed in programs such as "Astrolog" (if you download the ephemeris file for it) and on sites such as

What might the astrological influence of this point be? Presumably it would be related to AOC and her political positions and efforts. However, could this naming be considered random? Everybody tends to agree with the astrological meaning of the main planets and asteroids, which have names aligning with those meanings. However, how about much more minor asteroids that could be considered to be more arbitrarily named?

Asteroid AOC is presently located at 18Tau00 (and has been in Taurus since June 20, will be retrograde in Taurus between Sep 16 and Dec 22, and will enter Gemini on April 3 next year). AOC was born with her asteroid at 5Leo50 in her 8th house, which forms a Grand Fire Trine with her Moon and Venus (see above). Note also that AOC's AOC is conjunct Donald Trump's Midheaven, which aligns with her being an active and visible 10th house opponent to Trump.
