Asteroid 21000, L'Encyclopédie , was discovered on January 26, 1987 by Eric W. Elst at La Silla Observatory near Pedernales, Coquimbo, Chile. L'Encyclopédie has a period of 4 years, 31 days. It was named after The Encyclopedia (L'Encyclopédie in French), also known as Dictionnaire raisonné des sciences, des arts et des métiers , written between 1751 and 1172 by the Frenchmen Denis Diderot (1713-1784) and Jean le Rond d'Alembert (1717-1783). The Encyclopedia may be considered the principal work of the Age of Enlightenment of 18th- and 19th-century France.

Astrologically, L'Encyclopédie seems to indicate extensive or profound knowledge or wisdom.

Albert Einstein, whose name is synonymous with this and who was responsible for the US developing the atom bomb (which he lived to regret), had L'Encyclopédie in the eighth house, sextile Chiron (a door opener, a maverick) and Memnon (a fresh outlook), trine 1999 CZ118 (making a crucial choice) and 1992 QB1 (bearing witness to something), quincunx 1996 TO66 (vision), and opposite 2002 TX300 (naivete about things).

Marilyn Vos Savant, who has one of the world's highest IQs and writes a weekly magazine column and has written advice books, has L'Encyclopédie semisquare Mercury, square the Nodes, and sesquiquadrate Ceres.

Bill Clinton has L'Encyclopédie sextile 1999 OX3 (cunning), square Agamemnon (generalship) and 2002 AW197 (worldwide changes), trine Pholus (issues involving dealing with power), opposite Cruithne (one's roots) and Chaos (activism).

Ayn Rand had L'Encyclopédie sextile 1999 XX143 (acceptance issues), square Heracles (struggle against) and Vesta (commitment), and quincunx Dolon (issues concerning patriotism).

David Koresh, whose knowledge of the Bible was said to be extensive, if antisocially applied, had L'Encyclopédie conjunct Dominiona (domination, territoriality), sextile Jansky (acting as if inspired), square the Moon (the public, small children) and 1992 QB1 (religious expression, bearing witness), trine Melanie (victimization), and quincunx Cruithne.

The glyph for L'Encyclopedie is mine.
