Veritas

(religion, spiritualism, and occult)

Veritas, asteroid 490 (the 490th asteroid to be discovered, on September 3, 1902), is approximately 128 kilometers in diameter and has an orbital period of 5.6 years. Its name is a personification of the Latin word for truth. In a natal chart, Veritas’s house and sign position indicates where one is especially able to perceive or search for the truth. When afflicted, Veritas may suggest “false truth.”
