Constantia

(religion, spiritualism, and occult)

Constantia, asteroid 315 (the 315 th asteroid to be discovered, on September 4, 1891), is approximately 8 kilometers in diameter and has an orbital period of 3.4 years. Its name is a personified form of constancy, and is Latin for “steadfastness.” In a natal chart, its location by sign and house indicates where one experiences or seeks constancy. When afflicted by inharmonious aspects, Constantia may show inconstancy or a false sense of stability. If prominent in a chart (e.g., conjunct the Sun or the ascendant), it may show an exceptionally fair person or someone for whom constancy and the seeking of stability and security are dominant life themes.
