Mardis Gras Vesta and Parentalia Feb. 13

Happy Mardis Gras

It is also an Ancient Roman Festival called the Parentalia which means “ancestral days.” It was a nine-day festival held in honor of family ancestors, beginning on 13 February. It involved VESTA.

From Wikipedia

The Parentalia was a Roman religious calendar Holiday its observances were mainly domestic and for families. The importance of the family to the Roman state, however, was expressed by public ceremonies on the opening day, the Ides of February, when a Vestal Priestess conducted a rite for the collective di parentes of Rome at the tomb of Tarpeia.

Ovid describes sacred offerings of flower-garlands, wheat, salt, wine-soaked bread and violets to the “shades of the dead” (Manes or Di manes) at family tombs, which were located outside Rome’s sacred boundary. These observances were meant to strengthen the mutual obligations and protective ties between the living and the dead, and were a lawful duty of the paterfamilias (head of the family). Parentalia concluded on 21 February in the midnight rites of Feralia, when the paterfamilias addressed the malevolent, destructive aspects of his Manes.

Feralia was a placation and exorcism: Ovid thought it a more rustic, primitive and ancient affair than the Parentalia itself. It appears to have functioned as a cleansing ritual for Caristia on the following day, when the family held an informal banquet to celebrate the amity between themselves and their benevolent ancestral dead. The emphasis on collective cult for the Manes and early di parentes implies their afterlife as vague and lacking individuation. In later cult they are vested with personal qualities, and in Imperial cult, they acquire divine numen and become divi, divine entities.”-see link below

I am thinking about VESTA meaning the Virgin  in LATIN the fourth Asteroid to be discovered She is #4 known for the Priestess who kept the eternal flame burning in Ancient Rome. Vesta in your natal or in an event chart symbolizes Fire focus dedication Kundalini Tantric energy activations. The root word VESTA is the source of our money making in our inVESTment Portfolios. She is a super important powerful goddess and all investments are governed by her.

Where is she now?

Today she is at 13 degrees SAGITTARIUS squaring NEPTUNE in PISCES

and closely conjunct to MARS in SAGITTARIUS

This aspect is the perfect WTF is going on with Cryptocurrencies or the world of Finance these days or the entire messy world we are witnessing these days. Neptune in PISCES is the world of delusion illusion projection scam artists and debt. So do be very very careful these days.  A lot of people have been scammed by the Bitcoin wagon of dreams. “All that glitters is not real.” 

Stay focused on your own internal wisdom. Vesta protects the home fires. Make sure your first priority is that.

Vesta is conjunct the GREAT ATTRACTOR at 14 degrees SAGITTARIUS 02

Focus on what you really want to attract now.

VESTA will conjunct the Great Attractor on the Feb 15 Solar Eclipse with Mars 2 degrees behind her at 12 degrees SAGITTARIUS.

Mars and Vesta meet up on Feb. 25 @ 18+ degrees SAGITTARIUS.

Do you know where your Natal VESTA is?

If you have planets or angles there mark that date done as an auspicious day to do ceremony.

Lilith,Mars,Vesta Grand Water Trine Channeling

LILITH in Scorpio, MARS in Pisces, VESTA in Cancer GRAND WATER TRINE

Jan 27/28.

This aspect blends powerful emotionally transformative abilities to focus on your own self-worth; women’s deep spiritual and womb strength, spirituality, and compassion. Use it wisely on this New Moon in Aquarius. 

LILITH is considered to be at her most powerful right now. She is the natural ruler of Scorpio; her energy is all about sexuality, menstruation, power, control issues, reproduction, secrecy, revenge, and the dark moon/new Moon phase which we are in right now.The Original Goddess/Woman who refuses to compromise and demands equal rights to man is getting close to that famous 29th/30th last degree of SCORPIO.

“Definitely completely attached, but what you are attached to changes drastically. Each time it is to the source of sustenance. If at first a mother, womb, an elemental past, it can easily become later on a great teacher, a path, a journey. You are still thoroughly, personally hooked into the sweetness, the juice, the power. Yet as the levels shift, as the attunement deepens, you go from destructive enmeshment toward incredible openings. And as you learn to cut loose from each last thing and to move toward the next greater thing, you become adept in the rough process of inner soul work. You have an extraordinary aptitude for taking the most binding and heavy-duty circuits and moving into and through them, grasping hold of the guiding influence of ever-greater circles of allegiance. Leading eventually toward mutation and evolutionary breakthrough of the first magnitude.”

That works totally. Plus I found this amazing image about a week ago and was waiting for the place to put it

She touches the 29th degree on Feb 5th GMT and remains there until she enters SAGITTARIUS on VALENTINE’S DAY! Now that’s a nice synchronicity.

Lilith with MARS at the very last degree of the Zodiac today. I wrote about this yesterday ” Mars at the enlightenment degree.see article. The Masculine and Lilith are working together harmoniously right now, although you may not see it on the surface. They are also getting benefits from Goddess VESTA, the Tantric sacred Priestess Goddess who unequivocally tends the sacred flame of spirit and the Kundalini energy of transformation. Vesta is the root word of INVESTMENTS, something everyone is very, very, concerned with these days.

Vesta in Cancer

Vesta the Virgin, meaning whole and complete unto herself, is in the water/emotional sign of nurturing, nourishment, mothering, home, emotional safety, PRIVACY, children, food, and women, and countries, America and Canada.

Use this  MARS, LILITH with VESTA in  RARE HARMONY

  1. to invest in your own emotional safety, your own emotional nurturing and healing.

2. to nourish yourself, to feed yourself with what feels good at the deepest levels.

3. for the support of women, of the Divine Feminine, of the safe place within you, within your wombs and homes.

4. to help heal the split in the MASCULINE and the FEMININE within each one of us which is being so vividly revealed to us these days.

Channeling LILITH

Women must wake up and leave PATRIARCHAL RELIGIONS behind. Abandon them as LILITH did. 

 You must bang on the doors of every  Patriarchal religion in the world every day and demand change or abandon these organized control mechanisms for what they are. Any woman who wants to be a nothing, an obedient slave, a piece of baggage with no rights, consents to do so on some level in every church, mosque, synagogue and temple. It is the reason for the creation of these PATRIARCHAL stories.

VESTA still holds the eternal flame for every woman. Find the LIGHT of SOURCE in your own WOMB. 

Nurture a safe place within you, within your wombs and homes.

Nurture yourself with nutritious organic foods. You are what you eat.

Mars in PISCES, the true spiritual warrior’s best archetype would be the Christ Consciousness of Jesus who defended Mary Magdalene, who was a Sacred Temple Priestess, who let no man cast stones at her. He loved her as an equal. 

This energy is activated at this AQUARIUS NEW MOON of the Fire Cock. Lilith governs the New moon.
