Asteroid 29837 Savage was discovered on March 21, 1999 at Prescott, Arizona by Paul G. Comba. It has a period of 5 years, 75 days.

Comba named it for American statistician Leonard Jimmie Savage (1917-1971). Leonard Savage "wrote important papers on the foundations of statistics, probability theory and philosophy. He was a proponent of the Bayesian approach and developed a comprehensive theory of subjective probability and utility. (MPC 45344)

Astrologically, Savage seems to mean what its name suggests: savagery, savages, to savage, savageness.

Yasser Arafat has Savage in the twelfth house, semisextile the Moon, undecimal Venus, square Ixion, trine Mercury and opposite Saturn. The progress he and the Palestinian people have made toward liberation has come at a terrible cost.

His nemesis Ariel Sharon has Savage in the eleventh house of politics, conjunct Ceres, nonile the Midheaven, sextile Saturn and the Ascendant and trine the North Node. The action he has taken against the Palestinian in the name of Israeli national security has likewise brought dishonor to his nation in the eyes of many throughout the world.
