Origin and etymology

  • Astro-English: from Astronese, the prefix in-, denoting negation or something without, combined with the word astral denoting the stars or the astronomical world as a whole; meaning ‘without the stars.’ The use of unastrality denotes aversion rather than just disinterest or indifference.
