Vesta In Astrology Is The Flame Of Creativity

woman in black standing in orange backdrop with neon art

 

Vesta in Astrology, distinct from the mythological Goddess, is raw creativity and devotion to craft. Her influence is strong in people who are “married” to their work. Vesta is the flame of inspiration and the unique spiritual sustenance that comes from devotion to art, a task or creation.

From now until Feb 10, Vesta is conjunct Uranus in Aries.

Vesta on Uranus specializes in fantastic bursts of quantum inspiration. Tap into this, and it’s almost like you need to operate in multiple dimensions, to channel the ideas flares.

So Vesta was also on Uranus in late March 2008 – Pisces – and then again (this time in early Aries) in March 2012. Since June 2015 and until March 9 (the Eclipse that same degree of the March 2008 Uranus-Vesta conjunction), she has been in Aries. Last August she nearly got to Uranus but retrograded. So those points in your personal history may be being pinged now.

And just for kicks, Lilith in Libra is opposing.

If You’re Directionless, Maybe It’s Because You’re Trailblazing

Lilith + Vesta prioritize autonomy and creative freedom. Uranus is the smasher of boundaries. Lilith opposite Vesta/Uranus is when you live by your suddenly radically enhanced wits. You’ll acknowledge convention only so far as you have to, to avoid being arrested. And even that is only because jails have crap Feng Shui.

If you had a little something hot that flared up in August but flickered down again, it may be about to roar back.

As Vesta in astrology is essentially the creative flame within, anticipate sudden, startling illumination around what fans yours. Or, alternatively, the people and dynamics that are dampening it.

Thoughts?

This is me all of the time. I have Vesta conjunct Mars/Venus in Aries in the 7th directly opposing my Ascendant. I’m a fiery Pisces.

March 2008 was an absolute flare of ideas. I contacted a writing friend with a big crazy idea and it grew like a bonfire over ten days and became the basis of our professional partnership, the small press we co-owned and all the other good stuff that came after that. It came from an idea of been holding onto for a long time, waiting for the right time of execution. It was also a time of returning to my passion – writing. Of putting myself first. March 2012 – I was in a new writing partnership. And again, we were… Read more »

I should also add – 2012 was another older idea that was waiting for the collaborator and platform I needed.

This time around I know I just need myself as collaborator – though I yearn for an actual partner to work with.

All this vesta-Uranus action is happening conjunct my natal Chiron. There is lots and lots of healing going on. About being clear what is my passion, my fire and about trying to fashion myself as a word warrior!!

diggin’ this vibe. march 2008 i was getting ready to grad highschool. that was a GREAT period of my life. 2008 in general was rad. natal vesta in taurus conjunct mars by 4 degrees, so sort of involved in the grand earth trine i have with mars/ saturn in cap/ merc in virgo. also it’s sextile my pallas/chiron/hekate conjunction in cancer. almost exact square my sun/ceres in leo. definitely feeling an undeniable pull toward really and seriously and devotedly becoming the pragmatic and focussed healer witchlady artiste i know i am. i can feel that flame a-burnin’ and i can’t… Read more »

2008 oddly was the most fantastic year of my life. I met a man with whom life has been bound up since. Very bound up. It broke my marriage up. It earned me the most I’ve ever then lost me all and near bankrupted me. It took me to places sexually and personally I’d never been. I’m still reeling. Wonder if I can now draw a line under it all and move on. We shall see.

I cant think nuthn of March 2008 Vesta themed. Only thing standing out to me was Cap Super Bitch becoming my boss turning feral psycho. The kids had told me about it but it was a revelation to see it first hand. Incomprehensible given professional conduct for her first 6 weeks in job but that was Pluto going into Cap.

Ooh, as a mutable uranian fire snake (missed the CNY post), I love this! Definitely feeling the sparks starting to catch the kindling. My natal vesta in Leo, exactly square Uranus, so there is always interplay. It’s been a long fallow period — I’m READY.
2008 I was pregnant. This august, instead of a baby, I will finally graduate. The birth of a new Work looms… until then, a lot of day-to-day gestation to be done!

I FEEL THIS.
Just had a fabulous idea to start bringing in money, & suddenly feel renewed & freed of my pessimism. Along with the Mars-Pluto gusto, I am loving it!! & feeling ready to move up to new levels…
I have Sun conjunct Vesta in the 10th house, so no wonder! 🙂

This is crazy — we decided to move today. This is huge — my husband is a native of this city and I have been here since 1999. Uranus/Vesta are conjunct my 9th house Jupiter and trine my 12th house Venus. They’re also sextile my Moon in Aqua in my 6th and Mercury in Gem in my 10th. Saturn is transiting my 4th and opposing my Mercury (though is sextile my moon and trine my Venus) so it isn’t 100% party, either. But what i feel, overwhelmingly, is RELIEF. I have my natal Vesta in Pisces in my 8th in… Read more »

I have not thought about Vesta in my chart much yet; I need to give her some more attention. She sits in my 6th house, at 5 degrees Sag. The only aspect is a sextile to Jupiter (7 Aquarius) in my 8th house. Uranus conj. Vesta is transiting my 11th house, opposing my 5th house sun and trining my natal Uranus at 15 Sag (6th house). I like that fire-inspiration trine. And really need it for my creative work, too. I have been in a complicated crisis of self — what is my writing, who am I, what do I… Read more »

“Vesta on Uranus…quantum inspiration…it’s almost like you need to operate in multiple dimensions, just to channel the ideas flares” Love this! ‘Cos I do, 🙂 . That is a natal conjunction for me – in my 4th House. And by March of 2008 I was pregnant with new boyfriend and living together. Happily. When we fell pregnant Uranus was conjunct my natal Ceres exact – 2 deg off my natal Jupiter, lol). And Vesta-Uranus in Aries is in opposition to my natal conjunction of Vesta-Uranus!!!! So I am coming up to that epoch-rending transit in the next year more exact,… Read more »

2008 was a terrible year. My father died and the person i loved grew viscious towards me. I was still in my “nomadic phase” where i would move residence about once a year. I can’t imagine a worse year in a long time. Please 2016 be different. Be good. I haven’t had a good year since 2002. I am overdue. Well at least my father can’t die as he is already dead. But love life still a mess. 🙁 just comes with the territory of demisexuality which is something i did not know back in 2008. Work is still work.… Read more »

Hey, big hugs annica. Have you read Jorge Luis Borges’ poem “Shinto”? It is so beautiful. Salve for hurting souls. It occurred to me that your partner who went vicious after your father’s death (how awful and sad, the one time you need presence and deep understanding and you get a war zone) because he was not able to witness vulnerability. My father was like this when his then-partner lost a (difficult) parent. He was extremely harsh. I think it triggered a lot of his own grief at losing his father that he had not processed properly, so it was… Read more »

seems to be a lot of ‘anticipating’ things. At what point is taking personal action, rather than waiting around, a better use of the energy? Or do you mean anticipate as in the time is right for general activity so get busy. x

Wow! This is really interesting. Apparently, these transits tend to shake up my home foundations. Uranus sits natally in my Libra 4thH and Vesta in my Leo 2ndH. The 2008 transit saw me preparing for a big move and this conjunction happened on my Pisces 9thH Vertex/Juno. 2012 same scenario in regard to big move, but this time it was the beginning of my Uranus opposition from my Aries 10thH to my natal Uranus in the 4thH. Now, 2016, Uranus is applying conjunction to my 10tH Aries Sun and the same issues are playing out. Lilith is transiting my 4thH… Read more »

It so makes sense. We are gearing up for a change of foundations (housing wise) and I would appreciate any heads up on the Uranus opp Uranus, as mine is approaching (natally in Libra /4th too)?!

ICPlutoMM Member

Tricky thing with Uranus opposition is the feeling of you wanting to do your own thing, and in Libra it is like “oh, I have to cater to everyone´s needs!!”. Some issues with family of origin came up for me: “I will never be free, I will always have to compromise”. And this effort to break up with family legacy may bring some danger of acting impulsively towards the “wrong” direction /divorce, send the kids to boarding school lol). However, that impulse that was bottled up inside for so long IS going to erupt unavoidably. Uranus opposition is a time… Read more »

Soo interesting, March ’08 is when I lived by myself for the first time after an awful breakup (prior I had had roommates or been in a college dorm)… Uranus was in orb of my sun at that time (trust me, things just got weirder from there, but that was when everything was beginning). It’s like I re-dedicated to being myself, I was channeling Uranus vibe but wasn’t aware of it. Anyway, now I’m in a totally different place but I have an idea that is v. Saturn/Uranian I am trying to get the ball rolling on… but I have… Read more »

Oh this should be interesting, as today uranus is exactly conjunct my natal Lilith. Not feeling particularly rebellious so far, just veryy tired (physically). The inner flame/creative energy theme has been constantly on my mind as of late and resulted in a lot of research about energy management, specially regarding sexual energy (might just be transiting Jupiter in my 8th house, tho). I’m looking forward to see how it manifests in the next few days!

I started late to uni and took my time finishing my degree but aced it all the way through, winning prizes/scholarships/whatever was on offer. Once I get interested in a subject I can waste weeks/months/aeons on research.

I was badly burnt out from a career within a federal court in March 2008 and it took me 4-5 years to recover. I married what I thought was my dream man in September of that year. I was badly burnt burnt for the whole of last year at what was uncovered in that marriage but I feel like I’ve bounced back and already on the path to who I was pre 2005, so I’m looking forward to this March. It already feels like an end of an era for me. Bring on the new era!!!!!

And March 2012 was recovering from a mistaken choice in another degree. I was a wreck. I got the degree but will never use it. March has been sudden changes for me since 2008. It would be nice to have a birthday that isn’t overshadowed by something totally unexpected. But I’ll wait until April this year before I breathe out. Last year was March 28th where I had the wtf. For years prior that it had been March 5-10
