Asteroid 12340, Stalle, was discovered on December 18, 1992 by Eric W. Elst at Caussols, Alpes-Maritimes, France. Stalle has a period of 3 years, 254 days.

It was named for the Brussels suburb of Stalle.

Astrologically, Stalle seems to indicate stalling or being stalled or stuck..

Hamid Karzai, who as president of Afghanistan has struggled to rebuild his country, which has been ravaged by decades of war and Taliban misrule, has Stalle conjunct Saturn (work, career, reputation, rewards and consequences), tredecile Pluto (transformative), trine Pallas (politics, defending civilized values), biquintile Ceres (to nurture), and quincunx Hylonome (the cry of the people, popular support).

Jean-Bertrand Aristide (born July 15, 1953, in Port-Salut, Haiti), former president of Haiti, who made little progress in lifting up his wretched nation, has Stalle tredecile Venus (values).

Michael Jackson, who fought revelations of child molestation and was convicted of it by many in the court of public opinion, has Stalle square Varuna (huge, judgmental) and opposite Uranus (homosexuality).

Kim Jong Il, dictator of North Korea, a country from which news does not flow readily, has Stalle sextile Pluto (criminal behavior, secrecy, mass action), square Vesta (dedication) and Don Quixote (taking on the system), trine Venus, sesquiquadrate Mars (the military, weapons of war) and Ceres (food, nurture, attempting to maintain sole control of something), and quincunx Phaethon (in the driver's seat, careering off course).

Richard Nixon, who fought tooth and nail against investigations of official misconduct as president, had Stalle in the third house of the media, conjunct Ceres (attempting to maintain sole control of something), semisquare Mercury and Mars (war), and sextile Asbolus (awful experiences, folly, counsel taken).

George W. Bush has Stalle in the third house, on the IC, sextile Venus, Elatus (eloquent expression, deception, self-deception) and South Node (past experiences), quintile Mercury and Pluto (corporations, mass action, public money, donated money, unprincipled behavior), tredecile Ceres, trine Pandora (to have an impact, stir things up) and North Node (need to move beyond past experiences), and opposite Heracles (to struggle with).

Dick Cheney, who is also averse to official transparency, has Stalle semisquare South Node, sextile Chaos (activism, chaos), trine Pholus (need to show respect, cavalier attitudes), sesquiquadrate North Node, and quincunx Mars and Ceres.

The glyph for Stalle is mine.
