New Moon in Gemini — June 03, 2019, 10:02 UT

2019 is the International Year of Indigenous Languages, a United Nations observance that aims to raise awareness of the consequences of the endangerment of Indigenous languages across the world, with an aim to establish a link between language, development, peace, and reconciliation. Possibly this observance has contributed to the naming of (229762) 2007 UK126 as Gǃkúnǁʼhòmdímà from mythology of Jul’hoan people of Namibia. The naming took place in April 2019.

The New Moon at 12+ degrees of Gemini is in exact conjunction with 229762 Gǃkúnǁʼhòmdímà, a trans-Neptunian object from the extended scattered disc. It was discovered on 19 October 2007 by American astronomers Megan Schwamb, Michael Brown, and David Rabinowitz. The diameter is approximately 600 kilometers, but the body is not spherical. The orbital period is little over 620 years. Gǃkúnǁʼhòmdímà will come to perihelion in July 2046 (the point in the orbit where it is nearest to the Sun).

Gǃkúnǁʼhòmdímà has one known satellite, Gǃòʼé ǃHú, which is one of the reddest known objects beyond Neptune.

The Jul’hoan language, commonly called Ju, is one of the click languages. It is spoken in northeastern Namibia and the Northwest District of Botswana. The Jul’hoan people, or the ǃKung, are a part of the San people, also known as the Bushmen.

From what I read in Wikipedia, equality between the sexes prevails in the Jul’hoan society. Men and women live together in a non-exploitative manner. The Jul’hoan people long to keep peace between people. They believe in the creator, but they also believe that objects, places and creatures all possess a distinct spiritual essence. They practice shamanism to communicate with the spirit world, and to cure what they call “Star Sickness”. The community has trust in the healers and the teachers to guide them psychologically and spiritually through life.

In Jul’hoan mythology, Gǃkúnǁʼhòmdímà is a beautiful aardvark girl, who sometimes appears in the stories of other San peoples as a python girl or elephant girl. She defends her people and punishes wrongdoers using gǁámígǁàmì spines, a raincloud full of hail, and her magical oryx horn G!ò’é !Hú. The moon of 229762 Gǃkúnǁʼhòmdímà was named after this horn.

At this point I am not able to say much about the astrological meaning of this body. However, Francesco Schiavinotto, an Italian geologist and professor of paleontology, whose hobby is astrological research, has suggested the following keywords for 2007 UK126, long before its naming: “practical / pragmatic genius, empathy for common people, non-teleological thinking, class conflict, intense loneliness and anger engendered by hopelessness, peaceworker, peacemaker, peacekeeper”.

My own, so far somewhat narrow research brought forth these celebrities, who were born with their Sun in conjunction with Gǃkúnǁʼhòmdímà: Chaka Khan, Tracy Chapman, Brian McFadden and Amber Heard.
