Probitas, asteroid 902 (the 902d asteroid to be discovered, on September 3, 1918), is approximately 12 kilometers in diameter and has an orbital period of 3.8 years. Its name is a personification of the Latin word for “probity” or “uprightness.” In a natal chart, Probitas’s location by sign and house indicates where and how one is most likely to be honest and upright. When afflicted by inharmonious aspects, Probitas may show improbity or projecting a false image of integrity. If prominent in a chart (e.g., conjunct the Sun or the ascendant), it can show a person of exceptional integrity, or an individual for whom integrity is a major life theme.
