Vesta the Asteroid of Sacred Sexuality, and dedication, whose name is the root word of investments, and investiture is In the Heart of the Sun, called Cazimi March 7 @ 2:12 pm PST/ 5:12 pm EST/ 10:12 pm GMT.
The Vestal Virgins, the word Virgin meant a woman who was complete in herself and belonged to no man. The priestesses of Vesta were women who were dedicated as High Priestesses who kept the fire and flame of sacred sexuality/spirituality alive. I remember a past life serving as a Vestal Sacred “whore” tantric priestess.
The word invest is not only our monetary investments, but it is also what we invest ourselves into. This aspect with Vesta supercharged in the heart of the Sun is extremely auspicious. It makes me think about the recent untimely early death of actor Luke Perry from a stroke. In Pisces, this is a symbol of investing in your heart, and in what makes your spirit soar.
Vesta is associated with the Sign of Virgo, the sign of the Virgin Mother Goddess.
Vesta is the Goddess of the Hearth and the sacred flame which traditionally cooked all the food and served as the beacon of the Temple of the Vestals in Rome. It was their job to ensure that the Fire never went out.
We do revere this Goddess. She is the investiture of power. The Vestal Virgins were very important in Ancient Rome. They created special items used in everyday offerings and rituals they had power and freedom. The last Vestal Virgin existed until A.D. 394. They had to make vows of chastity which if transgressed resulted in torture and disgrace.
ANCIENT TANTRIC PRIESTESSES
Before the ROMANS: A Vestal Virgin was a Priestess dedicated to serving the Goddess VESTA as the hearth flame and earth mother. They were not non-sexual originally at all but totally sexual Tantric Priestesses. In ancient Greece, every unmarried woman had to serve in VESTA’s temples for a year before being was allowed to marry. These Priestesses focussed their hearts and wills and knew how to raise kundalini energy. They had sacred sex with men to heal them from PTSD before the men were allowed to integrate back into society. This was a very revered and honored position.
Invoke and integrate the energies of Vesta and the SUN in Pisces by focusing on spiritual practices, yoga, meditation and strengthening your telepathic focus in visualizations as part of everyday maintenance to your sacred soul light.
On March 7 dedicate yourself to serving as a Vestal to focus on your own spiritual and soul work. Also, do something charitable, give your time at a food bank or to help raise money for clean water or whatever your choice.
