Aeternitas

(religion, spiritualism, and occult)

Aeternitas, asteroid 446 (the 446th asteroid to be discovered, on October 27, 1899), is approximately 52 kilometers in diameter and has an orbital period of 4.7 years. Its name is Latin for “eternity,” and refers to the immortality achieved by deification. When prominent in a natal chart, Aeternitas may indicate a person with interest in the “eternal verities” or one who can expect a long life.
