Concordia

(religion, spiritualism, and occult)

Concordia, asteroid 58 (the 58th asteroid to be discovered, on March 24, 1860), is approximately 104 kilometers in diameter and has an orbital period of 4.4 years. It was named after a Latin word for peace. Concordia shows peacefulness—or the seeking of peace—by its house and sign position (e.g., peace with relatives in the third house, peace with employees in the sixth, and so forth); also, Concordia shows agreements between people or nations.
