Elpis, asteroid 59 (the 59th asteroid to be discovered, on September 12, 1860), is approximately 164 kilometers in diameter and has an orbital period of 4.5 years. It was named after the Greek word for hope. The house and sign positions of Elpis in a natal chart indicate sources of hope as well as the area of life where the native invests her or his hopes. When prominent in a chart, Elpis may show a generally hopeful person. When afflicted, it may show disappointment or lack of hope.
