Patientia, asteroid 451 (the 451st asteroid to be discovered, on December 4, 1899), is approximately 280 kilometers in diameter and has an orbital period of 5.4 years. Its name is a personified form of the word patience. In a natal chart, Patientia's location by sign and house indicates where and how one is most likely to be patient. When afflicted by inharmonious aspects, Patientia may show impatience or a pattern of being forced to wait for results. If prominent in a chart (e.g., conjunct the Sun or the ascendant), it may signify an exceptionally patient person or an individual for whom the cultivation of patience is a life goal.
