Helios’ Astrological Angle on Vesta in Sagittarius– YES! Heretics, this is exactly what we need. This is the kind of transit that makes this next stretch of time bearable, and allows us to really achieve what we want. Vesta, the Asteroid Queen of Duty, Dedication, Secrets and Sacrifice has moved into Sagittarius, the sign of Hope, Optimism, Philosophy and Bombast. “Okay, Helios” I can hear you say “So we get a whistle-while-you-work vibe for a few months. Cool. Big help, that is“, and you’re right, you will have that. That isn’t what excites me about this transit though.
No, what excites me about this transit is that it’s all about hope. You see, it all comes back to Pandora; In one of the lesser-known stories about Vesta, during the Titanomakhia (the war between the Olympians and the Titans) Vesta was given Pandora’s Box to hold. It was after the Epimetheus story, however, and the great evils were already out among men. In fact, there was only one thing left in the box: Elpis. the personification of Hope. Vesta, the goddess of the Hearth and Home, who abandoned her throne and sacrificed everything, was given Hope to hang onto, and I believe with all my heart that is the true reason why she gave up her power- She had a more important job to do.
Vesta hangs on to the Hope we all have, that life will get better, that brighter days are just around the corner. Some days that’s all we have. Some days we can’t go on without it. Most of the time we keep it secret, and close to the vest- a small ember that warms us in our coldest moments. While Vesta is in Sagittarius though, that ember blasts into a roaring fire, just after we thought that all of our light had gone out for good.
Vesta in Sag shows us that there is a morning after our darkest nights. We can use this to achieve great things when we didn’t think ourselves capable. We can rise out of the ashes of our old selves and remake ourselves new. Vesta is exactly who you need, right now. Dream big and dare bigger with her.
