Asteroid 7782, Mony, was discovered on February 7, 1994 at the Santa Lucia Observatory at Stroncone, Italy. It has a period of 5 years, 223 days.
Mony was named in memory of Monica De Magistris (1977-1998), a student of physics at Perugia University and a great lover of astronomy who sometimes visited the Santa Lucia observatory. She organized an astronomy exposition as part of Italy's "Scientific and Technological Culture Week" in 1995, giving lectures on the subject to visitors and was said to be an inspiration to those around her.

Astrologically, Mony seems to relate to money, dealing with chronic diseases, disorders or disabilities. Marianne Alexander also links Mony to insurance matters.
Karen Carpenter, who was young, talented, pretty, successful...and anorexic, and whose disorder eventually killed her, had Mony quintile the East Point (how the world sees you) and trine Chiron (self-wounding, medical issues).
Helen Keller had Mony conjunct Pluto (reinvention, survival, perseverance) and sextile Mercury (language).
Chris Burke, who has Down syndrome and is a successful actor, has Mony sextile Chiron (the door opener, lessons taught, need to pay attention).
David Helfgott has Mony in the seventh house, on the eighth cusp, sextile Pallas (conceptualization), sesquiquadrate Sun (to shine) and Vesta (dedication), quincunx Pluto, and contraparallel Mercury and Saturn (career, work, rewards).
Franklin Roosevelt is considered one of America's great presidents, getting elected to four terms as president, saving capitalism from itself and helping to defeat Hitler...from a wheelchair, which is how he mostly got around after losing most of the use of his legs to polio; this gave the lie to societal expectations regarding the physically disabled. FDR kept his disability carefully concealed from the public. He had Mony in the twelfth house of secrets, quincunx the Sun and tredecile Mercury.
His cousin and predecessor as president Theodore Roosevelt, who is largely remembered for going after large corporations that threatened to monopolize markets, for ramming through the independence of Panama from Colombia in order to have the Panama Canal built, and for setting aside land for national parks to conserve the US's natural heritage, had Mony conjunct Saturn (work, career) and opposite Chiron (the maverick, the door-opener).
Bill Gates, considered the richest person on the planet, has Mony in the third house of communications, quintile Venus and Saturn.
J.K. Rowling, who went from struggling single mother to richer than Queen Elizabeth I, has Mony trine Chiron.
