Fiducia

Fiducia

(religion, spiritualism, and occult)

Fiducia, asteroid 380 (the 380th asteroid to be discovered, on January 8, 1894), is approximately 78 kilometers in diameter and has an orbital period of 4.4 years. Its name is a personified form of the Latin word for confidence or trust. In a natal chart, its location by sign and house position indicates where and in what manner one is most likely to be trustworthy, as well as where one experiences trust issues. When afflicted by inharmonious aspects, Fiducia can show untrustworthiness or a tendency to misplace trust. If prominent in a chart (e.g., conjunct the Sun or the ascendant), it may show an exceptionally trustworthy person or someone for whom trust is a dominant life theme.
