Prudentia

(religion, spiritualism, and occult)

Prudentia, asteroid 474 (the 474th asteroid to be discovered, on February 13, 1901), is approximately 26 kilometers in diameter and has an orbital period of 3.8 years. Its name is a personification of the word prudence. In a natal chart, Prudentia’s location by sign and house indicates where and how one is most likely to be prudent. When afflicted by inharmonious aspects, Prudentia may show imprudence. If prominent in a chart (e.g., conjunct the Sun or the ascendant), it may signal an exceptionally prudent person.
