The Asteroid Vesta & Your Eternal FlameRead More »
It is for this reason that Vesta is aligned with tending to our eternal flames. In the days of ancient Rome, the Vestal virgins overlooked the eternal flame of Rome ensuring that it was never extinguished. Similarly, with the guidance of our Vesta sign and house placement, we are urged to consider what is most sacred to us and ensure that this sacredness is honored.
It is also important to mention the link between the asteroid Vesta and the sign Virgo. Vesta is one of the virgin aspects of astrology. Often times when people think of virgins, they think of someone that withholds from sex. While this may be true, there’s also the idea that sexual energy can be transmitted for sacred purposes. Thus, Vesta also offers us the opportunity to understand our sexuality in a sacred manner and approach it in a very conscious, grounded, and holy manner.
Vesta in Virgo Direct
With Vesta moving direct in the sign of Virgo, there is a focus on our devotion to ourselves. The combination of Vesta and Virgo amplifies the desire to honor that which is sacred within ourselves by taking concrete, grounded steps to achieve this physical devotion. While Virgo is a sign that is dedicated to service to others, Virgo also understands that before it can be of service to someone else it first must take care of itself. Vesta in Virgo will also encourage us to consider the implementation of healing in our lives. Where this healing will take place is shown via the house placement ruled by Virgo in our natal charts.
During this transit, we are called to consider our relationship with our sexuality and how we use it. Is sex a sacred act that is used for healing? Are there sexual issues and/or concerns that require your full attention? If you are not sexually active, have you explored the use of creative sexual energy as a fueling force that can be used to energize your life? How do your view sex? Is it merely a physical act or is sex elevated to that which is sacred and holy? Now that Vesta is moving direct in the sign of Virgo, there is space to consider these questions from a grounded, logical, practical perspective.
Once you have decided to be dedicated to yourself, Vesta in Virgo energy prompts us to be of service to others. During this transit, the desire to volunteer and help others is likely. There could also be a desire to work with small animals and pets as Virgo rules pets.
How are You Devoted to Yourself?
With the direct movement of Vesta in Virgo, let us all ask ourselves how are we devoted to ourselves? As a virgin, Virgo is whole and complete unto itself. With Vesta, there is the dedication and honoring of the self by tending to our own eternal flames.
What are we dedicated to in our lives? With Virgo’s influence, are we living a life that provides order and function? Are we putting our physical health and wellness at the forefront of our lives? Who and what is your personal calling? Vesta’s transit in Virgo asks us to identify that which is most sacred to us, and honor this sacredness so that we can be of service to ourselves and others.
