Asteroid 3267 Glo was discovered on January 3, 1981 by American astronomer Edward Bowell at the Anderson Mesa unit of Lowell Observatory near Flagstaff, Arizona, USA. It is approximately 10 miles in diameter and has a period of 3 years, 203 days. Bowell named it for American astronomer Eleanor Francis "Glo" Helin, a planetary scientist who has discovered more than a hundred asteroids and planet-crossing asteroid classes.

Eleanor "Glo" Helin.

Glo gets its astrological meaning from what the sound of its name suggests: literally, glow. It seems to have a lot to do with fame and accomplishment, but the glow Glo gives may be the glare of notoriety rather than the glitter of accomplishment.

Albert Einstein had Glo conjunct Lucifer(what others are reluctant to hear), semisextile Flora(climactic development), undecimal Nessus(the ugly duckling), triundecimal Uranus(revolutionary things); trine Saturn(hard work), Pallas(intellectual pursuits) and Siwa(rewriting the rule book, breaking the mold); and quincunx Neptune(ideals), Vesta(commitment) and Asbolus(following instinct).

Tennessee Williams, whose plays dealt frequently with controversial subjects and dark passions, had Glo conjunct Lilith(the marginalized, the poor, sad and angry); septile Ceres(nurturance); sextile the Moon(emotion), Mars(aggression), and the East Point(how the world sees you); square Chiron(to teach and/or learn), Asbolus(awful experiences, dark creativity), Atahualpa(without mercy), Antenor(subversion), Madhatter(insanity), Torricelli(in the eye of the storm), and Wurm(contempt); trine the Sun(to shine) and Mercury(the media, writings); biquintile Venus(love, values, indignation); quincunx/semisextile the North and South Nodes(building on past experiences); and opposite Cuitlahuac(retirement).

Shannen Doherty, whose reputation and image is decidedly mixed, has Glo semisextile Pluto; undecimal the Black Moon(wildness); sextile Hidalgo(assertion, self-promotion), Cuitlahuac and Sassi(to give the finger to society); square Vesta; trine Juno, Hylonome(what the people want), and Cosicosi; quincunx NOT(an emphatic no); quintundecimal(162-degree aspect)Chiron and Pallas; and opposite the Sun.

O.J. Simpson was once widely adored and highly successful, but his fame turned to infamy after he was accused of killing his ex-wife Nicole and her friend Ron Goldman in 1994. He continues to insist on his innocence, with little success at convincing others, and he has had much of his property confiscated and sold to satisfy a multimillion-dollar wrongful-death lawsuit judgment against him. He has Glo nonile Jupiter(the law); sextile Flora(sterility or richness); binonile Pallas; square the Moon, Quetzalcoatl(the fallen hero), and Torricelli; trine Ceres, Descamisada(heavy losses, hard work), and Wil(will); sesquiquadrate Pluto; quadnonagon the Sun; opposite Venus, Uranus, Atahualpa, Melpomene(tragedy), and Robinhood(confiscation and redistribution); and parallel Antigone(standing on principle) and Taguacipa(being revealed as bad, having others turn against you).

The glyph for Glo is my own invention.
