Va-Va Vesta – The Astrology Of Vesta

Filed in D.I.Y. Astro

Vesta the Goddess of Fire
Welcome to the astrology of Vesta, an asteroid. O.M.G. Vesta is now a planet.  Or rather, a “proto-planet”, whatever.

Although i am obsessed with Vestal Virgins – Vesta trines my South Node – I am not so across the astrological Vesta.  Even though she is smack-bang conjunct my Mercury in Aries!

Opinions as to what the astrological Vesta indicates in your chart are insanely broad…Here is a smattering:

* Vesta is the Goddess of the Hearth, hence her presence in your chart shows where you keep the ‘home fires’ burning.

* Vesta rules Scorpio. Vesta rules Virgo.

* Vesta is the Fire Goddess and she was a way more powerful Pagan deity before the Romans diluted her into their Goddess. 

* Vesta is super-patriarchial- you can still sense her lingering influence in words such as “invest”.

* Vesta is about Tantric Sexuality and what makes you hot. She is the most important planet in love synastry. Sacred Sexuality.

* Vesta in the chart is where you give away sexuality and/or romance in order to be fiercely independent.

* Vesta is unquenchable fires of passion and forceful self-actualization.

* Vesta rules small enclosed spaces and where you have Vesta is where you cannot stand to be constricted.

* Vesta is self-discipline and unwavering attention to a task.  She is also a Prosperity Goddess, the Hearth symbolizes abundance. 

I KNOW, RIGHT?   But look, we are now going to investigate Vesta.

Where is Vesta in your chart (sign/house) and how do you experience her?

Which of the above Vesta theories most resonates for you?

With your major love interests, past and present, was there any significant  Vesta synastry?

By transit Vesta is now at 9 Taurus – hello?

My astrological resolution for, um, the Eclipse is to deepen my understanding of Vesta and incorporate her more in my horoscopes. Let’s start here, i will join you in the Comments….Please share!

Hi! I have Vesta in the 1st house in Pisces in a grand trine with Pluto (8th) and north node (4th) and also in a grand trine with saturn (8th) and north node (4th). It’s also sextile my capricorn sun (11th), sextile my Ceres capricorn (11th), and square my Uranus (sag 9th). I very much resonate with the sacred prostitute and vestal virgins, but am also looking for other ways to channel this energy. Thanks!

I don’t understand how vesta is a fire goddess, yet ruled by virgo or scorpio. Just because something is independent doesn’t make it virgo, the fire signs all hold that energy quite nicely already and can be quite giving to to others. I think we need to expland the concept of “virgin” to surpass virgo.

Nice article!
But what would it mean if this asteroid was exactly conjunct my DC?

I am a little late getting this post, I know! Anyway, Vesta in Pisces in 7th here…trine Scorp moon in 4th. I have always been obsessed with making my relationships the very best they can be. In fact, I always find myself dreaming and imagining (Pisces) how prefect they could be… super high idealism. Do you think my relationships meet these standards? HA! Not by a long shot. Nevertheless, I am very conscious and mindful when dealing with others one to one… i like to perfect the interactions, I just wish others would do the same… I have had a… Read more »

Hello. I have a Scorpio Asc. with both Pallas and Vesta in Scorpio (Pallas conjunct the Asc. w/ a 3 degree orb). As far as my whole chart goes I have at least one planet or point in every zodiac sign, but seeing as how I’m a Virgo with a Scopio Asc. and Vesta in the 1st house I definitely identify with the Vestal energy a lot. One of my first loves has a small planet cluster in Scorpio and my Vesta conjuncts all three of those planets, with her Sun and my Vesta having an exact conjunction with a… Read more »

I think Vestal Virgins get over romanticised sometimes. It was a job. Societies that used them picked girls and psychologically preped them their entire life for a particular lifestyle. Before the fancy temples were built, people used fire to survive. Men navigated boats around the Medditeranean, trading – early bronze age lifestyle. They’d put a girl on a mountain top – a living mother earth. They called her a goddess and she gave the men a reason to return to the island. Medditeranean islands had limited space for crops, the men who traded on ships could relocate. If they did,… Read more »

Not to say that Vesta is Venus. Vesta symbolic of the consistent, immortal, human dramatic act of human of manifesting safety/home for our tribe. We aspire to principals of Venus – love/sex/wealth. But it back breaking work to manifest those elements. Its impossible to bring the Venus star down to earth, you know? But we work for the ideals of Venus – beauty/love/sex/wealth. Hearth, home sex and all. And once, fire more closely repsented that effort.

Not sure anything I’m saying makes sense, so I’m going to stop now.

ArienScorp

Yes, I was thinking that whatever interpretation you put on Vesta, in the end it comes down to survival: eat and be warm. I had the mind picture of an old woman, her life of charging forth to conquer, nurture, create, whatever over, and it was time to just stay alive.

Vesta is close to Virgo symbolism in my chart (in that I am a Virgo and I’ve noticed Vesta sometimes seems to be “where I really am”) I don’t know if Vesta is the Hearth Fires in the sense of literal home and literal housekeeping. I am thinking this through as I write…let’s see….for me, it’s conjunct Mars. There is a sexual thing there. A Mercurial thing (since in 3rd house). Square my moon. My concept of keeping house (if it IS about house, hearth and home) is way different from my mom’s. I am very much on the go… Read more »

Demetra George has an extensive book on the four major asteroids, Vesta, Juno, Pallas Athena, and Ceres. The book is called Asteroid Goddesses. You can get a better idea of Vesta from her writings.

Mother had Vesta and Chiron conjunct her South Node and yonks and yonks ago, she had been told she had been a vestal virgin…hmmm

Mine is in Cancer, 2nd house opposite Moon/Psyche/Artemis/Achilles/Lie…8th.

I’d say I lived those energies and why I consider sex sacred and in line with my values and why I won’t offer that energy to just anyone and will never let anyone manipulate those energies.

I consider Vesta, Shakti..The Life Force, and why we must cherish it and why what we give of it is a gift. Ever wonder why women are cast as harlots, etc if they do not use discernment with this energy? It’s because in a time before there was time, the female channeled the shakti power through her heart and the male utilized the energy…As the male element wanted more authority he began to seek controlling that energy…another words, the female power. This is a long story short, but I totally resonate with Vesta and why the female “keeps the fires… Read more »

If the opinions as to what the astrological Vesta indicates in your chart are insanely broad, then I’m not even gonna bother with an interpretation. None of those listed meanings resonate for me. The one thing that stands out though is: “Vesta in the chart is where you give away sexuality and/or romance in order to be fiercely independent” I don’t understand that. Am I missing something? I’ve never had to give anything away to be fiercely independent. I always thought my fierce independence was due to my Scorp sun/Sagg moon (Moon square Uranus) and Cap Asc. ” Vesta is… Read more »

I sort of feel the same scorpalicious. based on the above you could pretty much pick any trait and pin it on Vesta and be none the wiser, it seems to me. Confirmation bias they call it sometimes. There were some interesting concepts up there tho e.g. 12th house virgo’s ideas. maybe i’ll keep an eye out for the transits..

Scorpalicious

yeah 12th house virgo’s ideas were interesting but I’m not convinced it’s all related to Vesta. My chart is so Saturn ruled, I need solid evidence and concrete opinions, thoughts and/or theories. A few people also mentioned not liking small talk because they have Vesta in 12th. I don’t have anything in 12 house but I don’t like small talk either. I don’t even feel Venus let alone some stupid just discovered proto-planet”, and if Mystic isn’t across it how on earth will I ever be? Most days I even question astrology. … I’m so cynical. Right, I need some… Read more »

Vesta is in my 10th house, Cancer, right next to Mars. Mars in Cancer for me has always meant my aggro, angry, domineering father, and Vesta in that position means for me my ability to stand up for myself, to fire up and be feisty (this is my preoccupation at the moment, btw). It also means I could never stand to have bosses over me, there would always be conflict. But I think it also reflects my very deep need to retreat from the world on occasions and just nurture myself. I burned out at one stage, that’s when I… Read more »

Natal Vesta is in my 8th house, hanging with Venus in Cancer. I feel that I should be much more interesting than I am, with all that feminine power going on in my sex, death and taxes house. I’m curious to read what you come up with, Mystic.

Recently it has been in Taurus, but I’m not feeling that one way or the other.

I have Vesta conjunct my Sun in Aquarius in the 8th house. I suppose a Vesta/Sun conjunction would make Vesta very significant in my chart. The aspects to this conjunction are that it sextiles my Saturn in Aries in the 10th and trines my Eros in Libra in the 4th, squares my Lilith in Taurus in the 11th, and squares my Juno in Scorpio in the 5th. Not sure how to interpret all that……..any ideas?

I was fascinated at the description of what is the difference between an asteroid, a protoplanet, and a planet. It says an asteroid is smaller and irregularly shaped, but a protoplanet is big enough that its gravitation pulled it into a sphere shape. But unlike a planet, it isn’t big enough for its gravitation to clear its orbit of other asteroids.

There has got to be a lesson in there somewhere.

Vesta in fifth, sandwiched between sun and merc in Gem. Opposite saturn. She makes me think of both Empress and the High Priestess in the Tarot. Prior to her incarnation as Rome’s Vestal Virgins, her priestesses were said to use the sexual arts for healing of soul and body. (I think the removal of sacred sexuality from the priestesses’ remit and replacing it with a required celibacy, is an illustration of how power was ‘restructured’.) She’s a sun goddess, fire relates to sex and creativity. I think Vesta as an archetype is all about how home and hearth relates to… Read more »

Every time I pull up the list of others on astro.com, it appears in a language I cannot decipher! This only began happening recently; wasn’t always this way. Until I figure out how to fix this and find Vesta in my chart, “Vesta rules Scorpio. Vesta rules Virgo.” That’s really resonating for me. On the surface it seems so contradictory, but in light of all of the Virgo musing my Scorp self has been doing as of late (see: Astro Ga-Ga Comp, and Happy Gemini post), it’s more synchro than contradictory. My DC is in Virgo, 6th/7th house, and Persephone… Read more »

Vesta conjunct Uranus in Libra – 4th House. That seems awkward?! Uranus the cold, public genius and Vesta – passionate and bound by tradition. She seems like the kind of Libran lady who hangs rosemary and sage over her hearth. I did past life on a life as a vestal virgin in Rome. Got killed for transgressing the boundaries trying to help someone. It seemed irritatingly incongruous that my job was to protect the whole city, but I could not extend my hand to an individual in need. Blah, the system.

Fortifies what she touches. A truth you tell, i feel. Sure, Vesta must have fortified Persephone in my chart. Vesta and Uranus: having an AquaMa myself i know that an unorthodox home is still very much a home. It seems to me you travel your shamanic journeys very much in sync with your individuality, but you are also a strong homemaker. It is fantastic to learn of the independence of being a woman through the nurturing of the first woman in your life. Quite a gift to your family.

What an amazing thing to say Mille!! I haven’t known how to respond to this as I am all shucksed out.

So yeah, I am sticking with her fortress-like, fortifying abilities. Persephone is the Spring, the seasons and transformation in the most feminine way, yet she is medusa like in her ability to freeze her opponents. Afterall all she has to do is go to… Read more »

We have similar Vesta in Libra but, in different houses.
Natal Vesta 12th conjunct Uranus in Libra but, in my 11th House. I also have Vesta in opposition of Chiron in Aries/5th House.
Vesta in secret society or obsessed with secret societies, the occult. Strange bedfellows and unique choice of eccentric friends.
Somehow, I must temper this burning fire in my 12th with Chiron the wounded healer i my house of creativity/art.
I am driven. passionate and follow my visions but, sometimes old wounds pop up and cause me to second guess myself.

Ugh.. I wish I knew where my Vesta is located. Because right now I am struggling with the sex / romance part of my life. Why I am attached to someone who is so scared about his true feelings? I have asked God about this and for Him to help me with this attachment. I want him in my life but he does but gets scared and kicks me to the curb and thinks that is ok. He’s a Taurus / Gemini. Where can I find Vesta or should I just rely on it being in Scorpio and Virgo.

Virgo Ellie – I had an attachment like that. I realized what “God” was teaching me was divine love.

Once I knew love like that was real, even if the romantic relationship wasn’t, I knew Source was real.
