Vesta, the Goddess Asteroid of Priestess-ing (and Spiritual Facilitation) is now at 29 degrees Sagittarius. This is the Anaretic Degree, meaning that the lessons we have learnt from Her will be revisited one final time, in an intense form – before it bursts through to the next energy (Capricorn) at 12:53 am, December 4th 2014 (GMT + 8). That’s about 29 and a half hours from now.
Vesta is the archetype of the Spiritual Facilitator, and she brings to us all a sense of Commitment, Dedication, Service and Sacrifice. She is constantly called to let go of that which does not serve a Truer Cause, no matter how comfortable or attached she may be to it. But her ability in doing so – and knowing that her act of Sacrifice is a form of Spiritual Alchemy (without the overtones of Martyrdom, or the Calculus of Expecting Rewards) – marks one who has chosen the Spiritual Vocation of the Priest/esshood.
Sagittarius is associated with one’s Path of Learning, one’s relationship with one’s Guides/Teachers, and one’s ability to Expand the Sense of Self through Travel, Movement, Adventure, Experiences, and so on. Be it through the Mind or the Body, Sagittarius will get you to ‘GO BEYOND’.
Vesta at this degree of Sagittarius – for spiritual facilitators and seekers – represents a critical point where a certain decision is required – it may even manifest as a compulsive feeling to reconnect with guides (known and unknown). It may mark the need for a spiritual pilgrimage to find a new, more expanded understanding of one’s Path of Service. Or even by opening up new philosophical approaches to the understanding of your Path.
Sagittarius is also linked with astrology. This is an excellent time for you to seek out your astrologer of choice – especially if that person can help shed light upon this aspect of service. At the time of writing this, Mars and Saturn are sextiled, and the midpoint of that sextile is the Galactic Center (27 Sag) – a time and place where transmissions from Source are likely to be far, far more intense.
In general, astrological readings between now and the Gemini Full Moon (Dec 6/7) will be unusually potent. I am planning to go on pilgrimage at that time, and so if you are interested in booking a reading with me, I’d suggest doing it within this 29-hour window as Vesta finishes her transit through Sagittarius.
In honor of Vesta, I am offering a 50% discount on my readings for the next 29 hours (till she enters Capricorn!). And as a Big Thank You for helping my blog pass the 44,777 view milestone within a few months.
Blessings and Love to All,
