grabbing ephys for stragglers. swetest doesn't recognize "Quivira", lists provisional designator 1984 SF3. Quivira named during 2000 Flagstaff Festival of Science Asteroid Naming Contest:

Quivira is the name of a place to which Francisco Vasquez de Coronado was led in 1541 by an Amerindian guide named "El Turko," who said there could be found "trees hung with golden bells and people whose pots and pans were beaten gold." Upon arrival, the location and was found inhabited only by the Wichita tribe in what is now Kansas. The name was suggested by Jesse Roberts of Camp Verde, Arizona, as winner of a contest to name this asteroid in conjunction with the 2000 Flagstaff Festival of Science.

more #4105 Tsia info: Dictionary of Minor Planet Names, read long entry on page 350Named in honor of the ancient sun symbol used by Indians of the Zia Pueblo in central New Mexico (one of the Seven Golden Cities of Cibola sought by Coronado) [+][+][+][+][+][+][+]. Tsia symbol appears on New Mexico flag designed by Dr. Harry Mera of Santa Fe, New Mexico. Mera was an archaeologist who was familiar with the Zia sun symbol found at Zia Pueblo on a 19th century pot. The symbol has sacred meaning to the Zia. Four is a sacred number which symbolizes the Circle of Life: four winds, four seasons, four directions, and four sacred obligations. The circle binds the four elements of four together. #210 Isabella, #374 Burgundia, #3553 Mera, #15594 Castillo.

i'm going to have to update those keywords—created them several years ago to get eon phase snapshot. these don't quite capture things: this phase introduces a new emotional power, its impact & expansion. Flora conjunct Venus/Fanatica waxing octile the Moon. Fanatica (fascinating, “Fanaticus” was an honorable designation) in several senses: fan, fasces, sacred (since it comes from fanum, "temple") &c. words from the song, Looking at your face with the fragrance of jasmine flowers/ Opening up at the moment of emotional goodbye/ Tonight I will walk to your side/ I will fly with you/ With you soaring through the sky/ So much more that we can see/ Flying together high. emotional goodbye.

"Lightning" Bolt is speaking from EON-5's dynamic: "get through" & "move forward". You have to move forward after the disaster. And also, the Olympics ask people to move forward. China understands deep symbolism [+] — and i think its EON-5 move forward structure... is the shape of an expanding global flower (or some sorta dual global flower thingy. hey, great idea for a floaty) [+].
